Convention on the rights of children, 1989

ottobre 29, 2008

Art. 7: Right of nationality:

1. The child shall be registered immediately after birth and shall have the right from birth to a name, the right to acquire a nationality and, as far as possible, the right to know and be cared for by his or her parents.

2. States Parties shall ensure the implementation of these rights in accordance with their national law and their obligations under the relevant international instruments in this field, in particular where the child would otherwise be stateless.

Italy has signed this convention as well, but why doesn’t the government make it real?
I can’t understand!
A lot of gipsy people traditionally don’t register their children. In my opinion, the government must control that it doesn’t happen, instead in Italy our first minister Berlusconi decided that these people and children without nationality have to go away from the country. But, if they are stateless, where could they go? I think that Italian government has to register these people, all above the children, save them from the street and give them some hope for the future.
It’s a political opinion, I know, but the right part of our government is racist and I can’t accept this situation because it doesn’t represent myself.
Sometimes I feel ashamed to be Italian!
