After Conegliano and Motta di Livenza, last year, this time the silhouettes of the female cancer prevention campaign were destroyed in Oderzo. Unanimous indignation from volunteers and residents
ODERZO. They did it again: another act of vandalism that hits Lilt. After what happened last year in Motta di Livenza and Conegliano, arousing indignation, unknown thugs targeted the pink polystyrene silhouettes in Oderzo, the ribbons symbolizing the fight against female tumors as part of the prevention campaign promoted by Lilt, not only with the Pink October.
At least two damages in different points of the center. These preparations are usually prepared in October on roundabouts, in city parks or in flower beds, a bit throughout Italy through the various women’s support associations. In Oderzo the silhouettes also remained for the month of November, dedicated instead to the fight against violence against women. Well, someone did not like their presence and destroyed these important symbols, which encourage prevention and research on the disease.
«Behind this symbol – reflected a person who closely observed the installations destroyed by kicking – there is suffering that has been avoided for many women and the daily work performed in silence by many volunteers. Shame on those who have made this mess, there are no excuses of any kind ». Indignation also on social networks. Similar acts of vandalism hit Lilt’s pink ribbons last year in Conegliano, Motta di Livenza and other towns in the Marca, arousing unanimous indignation from the institutions as well.
