Three pizzerias in Melbourne, Australia have been sprayed with gunfire, and the local cops suspect the 'Ndrangheta or Calabrian Mafia is behind an "extortion racket targeting restaurants, supermarkets and food wholesalers across the city" as reported by The Age: "known to its members as 'L'Onorata Societa,' the group has established powerful criminal networks across Australia over the past century."
The Calabrian Mafia has eclipsed the Sicilian Mafia as Italy's most powerful crime group due to its obscene profits from the cocaine trade in Europe, and in August 2007 six mobsters from the Pelle-Votari clan were gunned down by rival dealers from the Nirta-Strangio clan outside a pizzeria in Duisburg, Germany.
At the time of the Duisburg massacre Giorgio Basile, a 'Ndrangheta deserter, told the Italian media (with overstated hyperbole): "the Germans must realise that where there is pizza, there's the Mafia."
The Calabrian Mafia further has become entrenched in Australia, Canada and the United States with surprisingly little push back from law enforcement in those countries.
Law enforcement suspect that the Calabrian Mafia is backing a breakaway group from the Rizzuto family in Montreal, QB Canada for control over the drug rackets in Montreal and New York, and last month the FBI finally busted one alleged drug smuggling scheme between New York's Mafia and Italy's Calabrian Mafia which would have smuggled cocaine into the Big Apple from Canada.
