Background: Riot Police made baton charges to scatter demonstrators in the centre of Reggio Calabria today (Sunday). The demonstration was the latest in a long series of sporadic protests, varying in violence, against the decision to name neighbouring Catanzaro as the regional capital.
CAMERAMAN Enzo de Giambattista - who has been covering the Reggio riots since they began - filmed this graphic coverage from the middle of the demonstration.
