Eleonora Evi leaves the leadership of the Greens: “Personal and patriarchal party”


“I will not be the puppet of pinkwashing.” Thus begins the long post on Facebook through which the Avs deputy announced her resignation as co-spokesperson for Green Europe, for a role “reduced to a mere front office”. The other co-spokesman is Angelo Bonelli

“I resign. I will not be the puppet of pinkwashing.” Thus begins the long post on Facebook through which the Avs deputy, Eleonora Evi, announced her resignation as co-spokesperson for Green Europe, for a role, she explained, “reduced to a mere front office”. The other co-spokesperson is Angelo Bonelli, MP for Avs. “I tender my resignation while remaining firmly convinced of the need for a courageous and contemporary Italian ecological project, and not yet another personal and patriarchal party”, specified Evi.

Evi: “The role of female co-spokesperson has been cancelled”

Then again. “After the 2022 elections, something triggered an almost indecipherable short circuit. Suddenly the old leaders started to build a wall against me, and this was because I had different ideas and I claimed, as national co-spokesperson, to be aware, for example, of the political decisions on the lists, on the alliances and on the strategies of the electoral campaign”, wrote Evi again. “The Greens, after a long absence, return to Parliament with a senator and six deputies. Among the latter also the undersigned. From this moment, when I expressed positions or visions not aligned with those of the management during the meetings of the National Directorate and publicly, I was accused of ingratitude towards the green family who had welcomed me and offered me a seat in Parliament”, she reported again in his long post. “So, over the course of this last year, my figure has been increasingly obscured and thus, in fact, the role of the female co-spokesperson of the party has been cancelled, on a political and communicative level”, she underlined.

Bonelli to Evi: “There is discussion in the party but no discrimination”

Ready, Bonelli’s response arrived. “It is okay to have political differences, it is peaceful, it happens in all parties. For example, we voted for the European alliance which reconfirms Avs, she did not, but this is a party with gender equality and which has internal exceptional women, like Luana Zanella, just to name one”, he told AdnKronos. “I’m patriarchal? Anyone who knows me knows that it is false”, continued Bonelli in response to the accusations of paternalism and patriarchal attitude made by Eleonora Evi herself. “Ask those who know me, the women in the Greens, Zanella…”, he reiterated. And regarding the accusation of indifference and condescension in the face of different opinions, Bonelli replies. “The different opinions are those on the joint list with the Italian Left at the European elections. She did not agree with the decision we made. And we discussed this. I am someone who listens and discusses. Historically”.
