Despite narrowly winning a 'vote of confidence' in Italy's Lower House of Parliament, Italians are showing what they really think about Berlus-"the Scumbag"-coni and the Italian Parliamentary system, throwing eggs, paint and stones at parliament buildings in Rome. Simultaneously, in the Sicilian regional capital, Palermo, 500 students occupied the main airport runway. In Turin, students occupied the railway station, while in Venice they held a demonstration on the famous Rialto Bridge.
The marchers also set fire to cars, threw more stones and overturned bins.
Police have thrown a 'ring of steel' around parliament, while inside parliament itself politicians have taken to each other with fists. Hopefully these politicians take to each other with more than just fists! Fuck the Italian state, fuck austerity measures, ACAB!
