libera and rome's anti-mafia shop

You can’t make this stuff up. Catholic-anti Mafia group Libera first began back on March 25, 1995 with the purpose of "involving and supporting all those who are interested in the fight against mafias and organized crime". Since that time, Italian law has allowed over 3000 farms to be confiscated from the Mafia (by court order) and to be redistributed for “social use”, resulting in the creating of “tangible symbols of the restoration of lawfulness.” Libera has taken large tracts of this land and formed farming cooperatives in Sicily, Calabria and Puglia, where young people produce oil, pasta, wine and other organic products which are then sold under the 'Libera Terra' label.

These products are available for sale at ‘Flavours of Lawfulness’, a little shop on Rome’s Via dei Prefetti, which just so happens to be a stone’s throw from the Italian Parliament. These novelty rich products are great items for tourists to take home, with the proceeds going to ‘a very good cause’.

But Libera is busy with more than just food related acivites. Click here to learn about the other work being done in the areas of promoting discussions, public initiatives, and education..... as they relate to the subject of lawfulness and social justice. In addition; every March 21, a day chosen for its symbol of renewal, a gathering is organized for relatives of victims murdered by the Mafia to come together to remember their loved ones, to share in their mourning and to heal. Like I said before, you can't make this stuff up.
