Italy: Residents set fire to beds in anti-invader protest

Residents in Treviso in northern Italy set mattresses on fire Friday in a bid to stop the local government from housing a hundred immigrants, media reported.

Authorities plan to accommodate 101 immigrants in empty apartments in the village of Quinto, but several angry residents broke into one of the buildings, removed camp beds, mattresses and televisions intended for the newcomers and set them on fire outside.

The protesters then put up tents, with the Corriere della Sera newspaper quoting them as saying: “We aren’t going home until they leave – this is an invasion.”

    This is what the future looks like.

    Resistance will have to spring up from the people who don’t want to be invaded since elites are useless and brain-dead from liberalism.

  • Millie_Woods

    The only way to stop this is to attack the source. Government is the problem. They should be burning government buildings, make them afraid to fuck the citizens over. It’s the only thing that will stop this.
