Alexandra continues her fight, even in the rain
The woman is back in front of the prefecture to ask for recognition of the compensation for damages for her hotel in the flooding of July 2009
Windbreaker, fleece blankets, umbrella and parasol: like this Anne-Alexandra Bacchetta, owner of the Ca’ dei Santi in Varese, faces day 17 of her hunger strike in front of the Prefecture. She is protesting to enforce the rights of citizens who have yet to be compensated by the storms of 15 July 2009 in Varese. On Facebook she has obtained the support of 1417 people and, after denouncing the City for failure to pay damages, she is not going to yield a step, even in this time of wolves.
"I was home only on Easter Sunday to be with my daughter. But I went on a hunger strike there, too, " she explained. No giving up, and a lot of solidarity from the people and institutions that have gone to see her in that strange location. "But still nothing concrete," she admits, despite the Mayor Attilio Fontana going to see her on the second day of hunger strike , and in the days before Easter, has also reached the regional councillor Raffaele Cattaneo. "Unfortunately confirmed that institutional funds are finished, but he said they are looking for alternative routes. Now I’m waiting to see what they are. "
