When you are miles away from your native country, it becomes weird to look back and see that your country is screwed. You feel powerless when you see what it is going on from a political and economic point of view. You can not do anything, you can not join the people who are protesting for freedom and a better country, you can not support the people who are trying to make things better for everyone.
You can just watch and comment.
That’s what most of the people think, but it’s not like that. When you live in a different country you can look at Italy from a different point of view, you can analyze its problems and find ways of fixing them. Further with the use of the internet you can coordinate thousands of people, just with one click. At the same time, reading Italian newspapers has never been so easy as it is today.
You can still contact your local Italian political activists in the place you live or everywhere in Europe and you can keep you active on every side. There is still another politics that you can run from England, which is the one that affects the Italians who are living in other countries; because when we have elections, there are also seats reserved to Italians who live in the four main regions of the world: Europe, North America, South America and Asia.
Further with the use of social media, in my case, Facebook and Twitter, you can run your own campaigns about the problems you care about and people listen to you! The power that the internet has given us is so immense and even if we are thousands of miles away we feel at home.
