  • Description

    Veteran Communist Party members mingled with girls in "hot pants" as more than one hundred and fifty thousand trade unionists, from all parts of Italy, descended on Rome today. The demonstration, staged to support claims for full employment, wide-ranging reforms and a better deal for the underdeveloped South of the country, was the country's biggest for many years.

    The size of the response reportedly amazed even the trade union leaders who had hoped for half that number.

    Truckloads of police and Carabinieri were drafted into Home to watch over the mass rally, but there were no incidents.
