@Fluffula I’m an Italian Australian just like Sisto Malaspina. White Australia called us wogs, dagos etc. but when it suits they say we “assimilated” better than new migrants and built the nation. Sick of migrants being used as political pawns by politician arseholes..

@howiesacct @MelodyM05174377 Sisto Malaspina represented everything that was good about migration, integration and the Aust dream. He worked 70 hours a week, bought a business, then the freehold, had a smile, a kind word and a generosity of spirit for everyone, and died at the hand of a man he sought to help.

Vale Sisto Malaspina. You were Melbourne for me. You would yell and scream and be so beautiful whenever I came in since I was 14 and claimed Aurora as your grandchild. I can’t describe how upset I am for the loss of someone so lovely..
