The protest against the expensive fuel runs on the trucks, indeed it stops at the edges of the roads. The concern of logistics staff is rampant throughout Italy. The bulletin of protests and demonstrations in progress is lengthening hour after hour and involves the entire peninsula, from South to North, along the route that daily sees transport with vans, trucks, trucks. The government on expensive energy
Economy Minister Franco said the government is ready to review the NRP based on the impact of rising energy costs on growth. Today a briefing by the Minister of Ecological Transition Cingolani is expected in the Chamber. Taranto
The mobilization of road hauliers continues in Taranto who spontaneously guard the state road 106 and state road 100 stopping their vehicles at the edge of the roadway to protest against the expensive fuel and the increase in operating costs. Vehicle traffic is slowed down and at the moment there are no blocks, but the situation – insiders say – could change with an escalation of the protest in the absence of responses from the government. On the stationary trucks there are posters with the inscription: “The government has not understood the situation. This is the answer we have received. Let’s understand how much it costs to stop road transport in Italy. Taranto turns off the engines”. The fears of companies
“We confirm all the fears related to the possibility of a total blockade of heavy vehicles, even if production at the plant has not been stopped at the moment. However, we do not exclude having to do it soon if prohibitive conditions for distribution and transport arise”. This was declared by Flavio Ferro, operational director of the La Molisana pasta factory in Campobasso, which supplies the entire national territory and 120 countries of the foreign market. This morning there are blocks of road hauliers between the Statale 16, on the border with Puglia, and at the gates of the regional capital. According to what is learned, these are principals that are guaranteeing the passage of heavy vehicles loaded with goods entering and leaving the company that produces pasta. A block of trucks in protest against the expensive fuel also at the gates of Campobasso, near San Giovannello. “The situation – explains Ferro – is in progress. Should transport conditions worsen, we will make the decision to stop production. We share – he concludes – the reasons for the categories harassed by expensive fuel and the exponential increase in costs at all levels. .Tomorrow flurry of strikes

This morning the Calabrian hauliers activated protections on the great communication arteries of the region to protest against the high prices affecting fuel and energy. The safeguards were activated in the province of Catanzaro on the state road 280 and, in particular, near the Settingiano junction, in two petrol stations and near the roundabout of the Lamezia Terme airport. In Crotone, the sit-in was organized near the roundabout in Passovecchio, while similar initiatives are reported near the Pizzo Calabro (Vv) motorway junction and in San Lucido (Cs) on state road 18.
The protest takes place peacefully, even if there are slowdowns for road traffic. The initiative was promoted by the Calabrian Transport Companies Association (Aitic) which in recent days had announced its willingness to demonstrate until a strike was announced. Yesterday chaos in the South and a stabbing of
trucks, vans and even tractors stopped at the entrances and on the highways, but no big signs on the banners. And the protest started from the ‘base’ of the world of trucking in Southern Italy, organized between social networks and chat groups, which led the demonstrators to block various arteries of the country, from Ravenna to Caltanissetta, against the increase in the price of fuels. There were moments of tension, with a truck driver stabbed by a motorist, fortunately not seriously.
A worrying episode occurred in Foggiano , where a truck driver who was protesting on state road 16 was stabbed by a motorist, fortunately not seriously: at the sight of the demonstrators, the attacker had not slowed down, risking to run over them. At that point he got out of the car and wounded one of those present with a knife.
From the sit-in near the A2 junctions of Gioia Tauro and Rosarno to the parade of truck drivers on the A1 Caserta route or the Apulian state roads of Lecce and Taranto, several mobile blocks were imposed and then removed, but which in any case caused slowdowns and inconvenience to traffic. In Lazio, a sit-in took place at the Fondi fruit and vegetable market but there was no block. In the Bari area, however, the truck drivers are on the second day of protest on state road 96 and in the industrial area of ​​Altamura. The protest, it has been announced, will bring the tir-snail on Friday to the gates of Bari .
However, the initiatives are not limited to the South: the Porto San Vitale of Ravenna is blocked by truckers against expensive diesel and also against the Green pass. The sit-in, it was explained, followed the mobilizations in progress also in other parts of the country, such as in Palermo and Caltanissetta. Even if in general these are peaceful initiatives, according to the protesters themselves, the protest, which started from the ‘base’ of the category with many drivers at the service of micro-enterprises, especially in the fruit and vegetable world, could raise its level up to the blocking of the supply of goods and services throughout the country.
And if Assoutenti warns about the risk of possible “damage to producers and consumers”, the president of Fiesa Confesercenti, Daniele Erasmi, foresees “production difficulties of the companies in the food supply chain starting from the south, a strong agricultural vocation. This could have repercussions on the wheat supply chains. , bread and pasta: we already point out difficulties in the province of Foggia regarding baked goods “.
