The Mafia enriches itself in many ways, one of these is the demand for Pizzo, the Sicilian slang term for protection money. In Palermo 80% of businesses are believed to pay this tax to Cosa Nostra. However, over the last few years something has started to change. At the forefront of this change is a group of young people called 'Addio Pizzo' (Goodbye Protection money). In 5 years their civil campaign has broken down the wall of silence that surrounds the Mafia extortion processes.
