Southern Italian town world’s ‘only white town’ after ethnic cleansing

Shocking! Some Europeans are standing up for their own identity and for keeping out those who are not a good fit. Wow, some Europeans have a sense of their own self-interest.

The Guardian from 2010: Authorities remove all remaining immigrants out of Rosarno for own protection after locals unleash bloody ethnic cleansing.

Rosarno in southern Italy had, by last night, been turned into what one politician termed the world’s only entirely white town after a bloody ethnic cleansing that produced scenes reminiscent of the old American deep south.

As bulldozers got to work to obliterate shacks belonging to the itinerant crop-pickers who had fled, the last of more than 1,000 such workers were being removed from the area for their own protection.

After two days and nights of violence that began with the apparently motiveless shooting of two African workers, the number of injured stood at 53, comprising 18 police, 14 local people and 21 immigrants, eight of whom were in hospital.

Some of the crop-pickers had been shot; others had been beaten with metal bars or wooden clubs as local people took indiscriminate vengeance after a riot of Thursday in which more than 100 Africans caused extensive damage in the town to protest at the shootings.

Those who fled included several hundred people who had agreed to be taken to government-run centres after reportedly being given assurances they would not be deported if found to be illegally in Italy.
