The association Borderline Sicilia Onlus expresses its solidarity and support for the journalist and writer Antonio Mazzeo. A few days ago, the council of Falcone brought a lawsuit against Mazzeo for having written an article which was published in I Siciliani Giovani. The article reported on mafia infiltration in some of the council's contracts and the devastating impact this has had on the local area. Mazzeo's journalism has always focussed on similar types of inquiries and he has done a lot of work on the mafia, the role and the presence of the military in Italy and migrants' rights. 

He is now paying the price for carrying out investigative journalism in Italy, where a lawsuit is an instrument deployed by those who wish to silence through intimidation those who have the courage to inform and denounce. And in this case, it is even being done with public money.
