In Palermo kommen immer mehr Leute aus anderen Ländern an, die sich an B4p beteiligen werden. Insgesamt sind wir damit rund 35 bis 40 Personen (zuzüglich die 12 von der „Oloferne“). Die meisten werden mit der Fähre nach Tunis fahren. Heute morgen gab es die Pressekonferenz an der „Oloferne“. Es kamen nur ein, zwei lokale Fernsehteams, die Interviews führten, aber bei Beginn der offiziellen Konferenz verschwanden. Die vorbereiteten Botschaften wurden dann größtenteils vor Angehörigen unserer Kampagne vorgetragen. In Palermo wird uns deutlich, dass die italienische Mobilisierung nicht die Sozialen Zentren erreicht hat. Auch AnarchistInnen sind unsichtbar. Das gleiche gilt für linke Musikzusammenhänge. Das ist insofern schade, als dass es in Palermo mit „Gente Strana“ (http://www.myspace.com/gentestranaposse) eine sehr bekannte linke HipHop-Gruppe gibt, die in ihrem aktuellen Video die Problematik ertrunkener MigrantInnen vor Lampedusa und Sizilien aufgreift. Niemand aus diesem Spektrum, die von uns angesprochen wurden, wussten von B4p. Heute beginnt beginnt auf Sizilien das grosse Festival „Rap Militante“ (auf Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/306904262721706).
