Same Old Story (fragmento)

(…)
What followed was the same old story. They don’t want us to camp here. They want us to show documents. They forbid us to make a fire, etc.
The fire is lit under their noses. We refuse documents. They try to insist, they menace to use force. “We can still come to an agreement, but if our superiors in Bari give us the order, we will take you in.”
In the meantime a crowd has gathered around us. They like us. They talk to us. They bring us food and blankets.
“As you wish. But do tell your superiors that if they decide to use force against peaceful citizens, it will be broadcast live on the internet. It will go around all the social networks. The whole world will be able to watch it. So with all the bad publicity that would result from it, your superiors should think twice if it’s really worth the effort.”
It wasn’t, of course. Like many of their colleagues before them, the police very silently retreat, and leave the square to us.
