In an exclusive interview, Amensty Italy Riccardo Noury talks days before the second hearing of Carola Rackete, scheduled next 18 July in Agrigento, Sicily.

Rome 9 July 2019 - Challenging far-right populism is tough job. It takes courage, consistency, hard work, and the skills to oppose hate speech, to replace fake information and propaganda with fact-checked reality, with the truth. Amnesty international Italy spokesperson Riccardo Noury tells us of an organisation working on the frontline now in support or Carola Rackete, the German captain of the migrants rescue vessel Sea-Watch 3 who dared to break Salvini's 'closed harbours' laws.

In an exclusive interview to Talk Europe Noury explains how Rackete is a case is the point of convergence of a radicalisation of politics poisoning Italian society split onto pro and against NGOs by a constant propaganda spreading on social media hate speech and criminalising those who help migrants, those who save lives at sea.   

The conversation on the root causes involves Italian politics of business and interests prevailing over peoples' rights, the regime-style strategy of progressive abolition of the chance to be questioned delivered trough one- way posts on social media and the progressive marginalisation of reliable sources of information.
