    Background: ITALIANS HAVE BEEN PLAGUED BY LABOUR TROUBLES FOR MANY MONTHS - AND A GENERAL STRIKE IS THREATENED NEXT MONTH - BUT TODAY (WEDNESDAY) HIT THEM WHERE IT IS MOST LIKELY TO HURT. PRACTICALLY EVERY BAR, CAFE, PASTRY SHOP, RESTAURANT AND DAIRY IN THE NATION CLOSED ITS DOORS IN PROTEST AGAINST A BILL BEFORE PARLIAMENT WHICH WILL IMPOSE AN ADDED TAX ON THEIR SALES. SO, FOR ONE DAY, THERE WERE NO "ESPRESSO" COFFEE, NO PASTAS, NO APERITIFS. IN ROME, TO ADD TO THE CONFUSION OF THE CLOSURES A TWO-HOUR STRIKE BY THE CITY'S TAXI DRIVERS PROTESTING AGAINST A NEW DETAILED TAX DECLARATION WHICH, THEY CLAIM, WILL PUT THEM AT A DISADVANTAGE.
