Europe Burns!

15 Dec

Today was another great moment of struggles in Italy. One hundred thousand high school and university students, precarious researchers and workers from all over Italy demonstrated in Rome on the day in which it seemed a vote of no confidence would be passed on the Berlusconi government. Berlusconi and the right saved themselves, but in the streets of Rome and many other Italian cities the movement expressed its mistrust of the government. For hours and hours there was a battle in the centre of the city, with police charges and a mass resistance of students and precarious workers, fires and barricades. Some dozens of people were arrested: we demand their immediate freedom! From London to Italy, a new Europe of struggles and movements is emerging. See you all at the Paris European meeting, see you on the barricades!
