Chiedere. C’è chi ne ha paura, e non si capisce il perchè. Sì, perchè chiedere è un dovere, prim’ancora che un diritto inalienabile. Se chiedi, forse sai. Se non chiedi, rimani ignorante. Non stimoli i fatti. Non pungoli la vita. Rimani piatto, assuefatto e anestetizzato per mano di chi invece dovrebbe essere il destinatario dei dubbi e delle azioni con/seguenti. Come per esempio scrivere ai vertici del governo USA, in una Correspondence for Explana(c)tion, E-nucleating the Lucania Nuclear!
C’è chi ha sete di fatti, si pone interrogativi, richiede risposte, non si pone limiti e ricerca la trasparenza, come fanno i giornalisti Ivano Farina e Nicola Piccenna dalle pagine di Karakteria, pubblicando Lettere al presidente degli USA sul trsporto della Trisaia. La loro lettera chiede riscontro. Merita riflessione e azione. La tanto celebre “libertà di stampa”, la tradizione di “libertà” e “democrazia” di cui si fanno campioni gli statunitensi – loro presidente in testa – sono alla base deludente e disorientante delle non-risposte alle richieste formali inoltrate alle Agenzie preposte.
Quanto ho pubblicato – e ringrazio Ivano e Nicola per averlo ripreso – non pretende sotto(i)scrizione. Forse può essere copiato. O addirittura incollato. Da chi? Dai Lucani, certamente. E da tutti gli italiani che pensano sia ora di smetterla, di farla finita con gli imperialismi, nostrani e stranieri. Benvenuti tutti coloro anche fuori dall’Italia-stan che credono sia giunta l’ora di cambiare. Partendo da un fatto, tutt’oggi inspiegato, secretato, svanito nel nulla di quattro paroline di un comunicato. Dal nucleare lucano.

Subject: explanation about the HEU transfer from the ITREC in Rotondella (Mt); aim of the use for the uranium taken (civilian or military one); withdrawal from Italian land with immediate disengagement.
I am writing You this letter in order to ask You to inform and explain the facts as follow.
I come from Lucania, a South-Italy Region. In that territory there is the ITREC, placed in Center for Nuclear Energy (ENEA) at Rotondella (Matera Province).
In that nuclear depot are secured the nuclear bars originating from Elk River. They were moved over there at the end of the sixties. And still they are.
In the night between last July the 28th and the 29th, at 3:00 am there have occurred a nuclear stockpile classified transportation from ITREC. A few hours after, and via a press release by SOGIN, we have been acquainted with that operation concerned the transfer of nearly 1kg of uranium forwarded to the Gioia del Colle (Bari) airbase.
We did learn that the nuclear stock pile object of the transfer should be delivered to your country, the USA. Or rather, this is an induced assumption, since anything else has been told, and there are not news covering the facts.
I am not asking You to reveal or disclose secret files of Your Administration. Rather, I am asking You to:
Expedite Yourself to return to Your own country all the Elk River nuclear bars taking them from ITREC;
Inform where the nuclear stock pile were or is still addressed;
Whether the nuclear stock pile moved will be used for energetic or military aims;
Explain why a civilian operation on Italian territory needed the participation of the Army and of the Security Agencies of both the countries involved, Italy and the USA ones.
Considering that Italian Government, its Departments of the Interior, for Health, of the Environment, of Defense, of Tourism and of Economic Development are not releasing any acceptable press bulletins/information, I am asking You to explain what happened, i.e.:
Whether the nuclear stock pile transfer were to enter or to exit the ITREC;
Why the majors of the towns and villages involved in the supposed transfer route have not been alerted;
Why Your Administration did not have release any notice or news about those facts yet;
Going beyond the Seoul agreement of the October 2012 or any agreement stated between Your and the Italian Government, I do ask you to immediately write down a document in which is reported without any further delay the Italy disengagement by whatever the nuclear protocol with the USA, i.e:
To immediately clear Italy by all Your own nuclear and radioactive stockpile;
I do ask You to release a note in which You can assert whether the ITREC is under military control, Yours or Italian Government or both of you, and which are the documents sealed on this regard; but, above all, the reasons of this military control;
In the end, considering that the Mediterranean is a strategic base – as much as Italy central position – for Your Government, USA and NATO Military Forces, I do ask You to withdraw from Italian land. That is, all bases are going to be closed and dismantled.
Because we cannot pay with our health, with the lack of safety and freedom, with the lack of the possibility to move, Your presence in the name of a security that de facto does not exist. I am frightened and terrified by nuclear accidents occurrence in the South and/or in the rest of Italy, as well as having retaliation for your military actions by attacking Mediterranean or Middle East countries which Italy has always been having relationships of great friendship with, sharing social, economic, geopolitics, but above all cultural interests.
An ultra-century-old culture at this point victim of the Mediterranean area occupation and endless colony in collusion with Italian and European Governments. Friendship and freedom that should come back to spread after the repayment of the debt contract via the ERP. But, because of the ERBD establishment, Your country is still playing a leading role with very substantial investments in this area since 1991.
International relationship among nations does not mean to quarter their army and equipment, having their bases and nuclear stockpiles – as active as waste disposal. No: we cannot keep on paying for decision from the top.
Writing You, this text can be extended also to the United Kingdom and France Governments, imperialist-colonialist and nevertheless warmonger and militarist, besides of being engaged in actions of unsustainable energy actions.
I am sure You will understand my opinion and position even if it is too peculiar compared to the “big picture” of the geopolitics strategies that You continually sell worldwide.
Awaiting for Your reply to this simple letter.
