Peschiera: Riots for groping women on Lake Garda – News from abroad

Peschiera – As the crowd left, Orietta Gaiulli, the mayor of Peschiera, said in astonishment, “We saw the day of the war.”

About 1,500 to 2,000 young people attacked a quiet town on Lake Garda (Italy), rioting, attacking tourists and destroying shop windows. There were fights, stabbing, throwing stones and bottles at police officers.

Offenders: mainly young people, probably mostly migrants from North Africa. They traveled on “Republic Day” on June 2 and chanted “This is Africa.”

The incident, meanwhile, has sparked heated political debate in Italy – also because countless women have been abused and harassed by men in the crowd. About 30 suspects are being investigated.

German-Israeli psychologist Ahmad Masour said on Twitter: “It doesn’t start with boys harassing women on the street. It starts with the idea of ​​purity and honor that a woman should keep her virginity … “

Calls for a new crowd are circulating in the coming days, this time in Riccione near Rimini.
