West Faces “Social Bomb” As Pandemic Sparks Unrest Among Poorest


Big U.S. cities only have ‘a few weeks’ until social unrest and riots surface, says Red Cross president

Zero Hedge

The next phase of the COVID-19 pandemic could be a flare-up of social unrest across major Western cities as millions have lost their jobs, economies have crashed into depressions, and the military is being called up to maintain order.

The Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) warned that riots could be imminent in low-income neighborhoods as extreme wealth inequality has left households unprepared and without a cash buffer to weather the economic downturn.

As we’ve noted before, many Western households were already stretched thin before the shutdowns began, with little savings, insurmountable debts, and the lack of access to proper healthcare. Now, these folks, which many have been laid off from gig-economy and service sector jobs, have zero income and could be emotionally motivated to hit the streets and protest.

IFRC president Francesco Rocca warned on Friday during a press conference that social unrest could be imminent in Italy, reported Reuters.

“We have a lot of people who are living very marginalized, in the so-called black hole of society… In the most difficult neighborhoods of the biggest cities, I am afraid that in a few weeks, we will have social problems,” Rocca said.

This is a social bomb that can explode at any moment, because they don’t have any way to have an income,” he said, whose agency deploys volunteers across Europe, including in Italy, Spain, and France.

We are all in for some dicy times stormtruth. There many living in poverty or homeless in destitution and they will be considered 'a risk' to spread virus, sooner or later they'll be rounded up and 'housed', imagine for one minute if it was Your house that was commandeered. It could happen, as we know. City councils can't even house a dog, and they are kids at a candy shop when they Know one in ten Private homes sit vacant. My one said the only thing stopping them from filling them all up ( with god knows who ) is to identify owners for This Purpose would mean a breach their privacy rights. ( so they just have to find a way ) I am one up on them however and have already Chosen My Own homeless selection for some surplus places and given them full occupation rights - stewards at my command, at no expense to themselves or me. As for the council, I've removed the temptation of their dominance and deprived them of it, and its the best thing I've ever done. We Can Fight Back The Controllers, and at the same time help fellow man, of our choice.
