How many Southern Italians can say; Yes, we make it!
Peoples of Southern Italy stand united and proclaim our right to self-determination. The South’s seven regions — Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Molise, Puglia and Sicilia — Summarized in Napolitania and Sicily, our beloved Fatherland. We are two peoples with our own languages, own common culture, our own common heritage. We revel in our local traditions, languages and beliefs; and it is our ethnic particularism that constitutes the basis of our national community—a historic community rooted in the immortal principles of kinship, family, faith, loyalty, honor and duty. We can no longer tolerate the debilitating union that suppresses our identities. We are unconditionally opposed to the Centralized State called Italy and its imposition of global conformity. This morally bankrupt way of life, based on corruption, debauchery and avarice, forced immigration to units of production and consumption, cogs in a machine where material possessions are the measure of one’s self-worth and success. The plutocrats created economic underdevelopment to disenfranchise the Southern Italian people and sustain their financial dominance.
The corrupt system provided predatory industries with a dependent market for their goods, a steady supply of cheap labor and inexpensive agricultural products. This materialistic worldview has produced disproportionate economic inequality resulting in dire demographic changes and criminal excess. We reject the culture of greed, decadence and hatred perpetrated by wealthy capitalists, international “banksters,” media moguls, false socialist and corrupt politicians, from left, center or right. History has been falsificated at our expense. We have been demonized and denied the simplest of honors—our language, our culture and our history are being stripped from us. Even the dignity of our ancestry is denied with unfounded comparisons to the Bedouin and fellah peoples of Africa meant to demean and ridicule as well as legitimize their colonization of Southern Italy. But the greatest tragedy inflicted was the dispersion of millions of us from our homeland. In search of “work and bread” the oppressed sons and daughters of the South migrated—often to hostile lands—to enrich the infrastructure, agriculture and industries of foreign countries (including Northern Italy), while their own native soil languished in poverty. We are dedicated to the defense of our ancestral homeland and our peoples (Napolitan and Sicilian) —at home and abroad. We believe there is more to life than material possession and consumption. We desire a society free of corruption and dedicated to the advancement of our peoples. In the spirit of our ancestors we shall rebuild our homeland for the sake of the coming generations.
