Tens of Thousands of Italian Anti-Fascist Protesters Rally in Rome

HeadlineOct 19, 2021

In Italy, tens of thousands of anti-fascist protesters rallied in Rome on Saturday in a show of strength one week after right-wing extremists smashed into the offices of Italy’s oldest trade union organization. Among those marching was Maurizio Landini, secretary general of the Italian General Confederation of Labour.

Maurizio Landini: “Fascist movements that use violence must be dissolved. We ask for concrete acts, not just chatter. From solidarity, we must move on to concrete action. And it is time for the state to demonstrate its democratic strength in enforcing laws and applying the principles of the Constitution.”
