AN ANTI-FASCIST TEACHER RISKS DISMISSAL IN ITALY

Lavinia Flavia Cassaro, a teacher who insulted the policemen deployed to defend the meeting of the neo-fascist party CasaPound, is now in danger of being fired.

Why this story matters:

Lavinia Flavia Cassaro did what many do during demonstrations: in her anger, she shouted slogans full of rage and used words that would obviously be out of place in a different context. Yes, she was vulgar, but her manners or lack thereof are besides the point.

Cassaro ended up in the hot seat because she was recorded on smartphones, and then recordings were shared on social media.

During a television broadcast, the former secretary of the Democratic Party and former Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said: “She should be fired immediately”.
