This memorandum sets out grounds for opening discussion of the relevance of Treaty ofthe European Union Article 7 concerning ongoing events in Italy. 
The Italian crisis constitutes a new chapter in post-World War II history. The present Italian government has imported explicit racism directly into its programs and legislative work, apparently breaking a previously existing European consensus that explicit racial discrimination and racist incitement has no place in the European legal and governmental order. These matters contravene the principles on which the Union is based, as set out in Article 6 of the Union Treaty: “the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the rule of law, principles which are common to the Member States”. A detailed discussion of the legal and factual matters at issue are appended below. The European Parliament is one of the institutions named in European Union Treaty Article 7 which may provide a “reasoned proposal” to the Council on the initiation of Article 7 proceedings. We urge Parliament to develop and act on such a reasoned proposal. The discussion which follows below can provide an initial basis for such a reasoned proposal.
