Local criminality has shut down Christmas. In Bari, in Libertà district, the traditional Christmas Eve mass, celebrated at midnight, has been brought forward by the curia because of the curfew. Too dangerous, for families and elderly people, to leave their house in the evening due to the fighting between the clans that populate the district.
“It is useless to hide the fact that there are particular concerns in the district,” explained Don Vincenzo Auciello, the parish priest, in an interview with Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno. “At that time there are shots fired and bangs, the elderly people are afraid and families with children perhaps prefer to remain at home and remember the birth of Jesus within the family.”
Don Auciello speaks calmly about his decision, but the choice to bring forward the mass to 6.30 pm has provoked some indignation. The Libertà district is one of the most populous in the city of Bari, with around 60 thousand inhabitants, and it is also one of the most problematical. High rates of crime, dealing, drugs and prostitution. In the evening people are afraid to go out. Immigrants and local clans continue fighting one another and the demands of local citizens for more controls count for nothing.
The article doesn’t go into any more detail because of political correctness. But the problem here is Africans. This area has been totally colonised by Africans. I have seen videos of local residents complaining about how African criminals patrol the district carrying machetes!
