Vicenza is a core location for U.S. military strategies. The construction site of the new war installation started in these months to host the 173° Airborne Brigade, which has a leading role in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The city of Vicenza – inscribed on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites for the invaluable architectural heritage left by Andrea Palladio – hosts also Africom, the U.S headquarter for the military operations in the African continent.
All this is done against the will of the local Community – who already expressed in vast majority against the U.S. military presence - and without any possibility for the citizens to get information about health and security risks.
The U.S. military presence is an occupation that the “Vicentini” refuse. The man who will receive the PEACE Nobel Prize refuses to respect democracy in a European city and imposes this new military project on Vicenza. With this decision Pres. Obama loads a further magazine in his war machine-gun.
