ATDAL+40 calls for supporting 50-year Marcelli’s march and petition against unemployment

March against unemployment IT Jan2017_bannerAGE Italian member organisation ATDAL over 40 is supporting the action of Graziano Marcelli, a 50-year-old unemployed Italian citizen, who will start a long march across Italy on 22 January. His objective is to shed light on the very difficult situation faced by thousands of jobless seniors in Italy and collect signatures for a petition to be handed over to the Italian President, Sergio Mattarella.
 
‘Thousands of citizens are in this (desperate) condition’, said Mr Marcelli in ATDAL+40 press release. ‘The State should be responsible for offering a new job to unemployed people. Only those who work can make our wonderful country thrive again’.
 

ATDAL logoATDAL Over 40, which presented to both Chambers of Parliament a 3,700-signatories petition for unemployed senior people in 2005, is now asking people to support Graziano Marcelli in many ways, e.g. marching together with him, hosting him in hotel rooms, private houses or even campers along Via Aurelia, or donating small amounts of money.
