  • Description

    Right and left-wing students clashed in Rome on Thursday(19 November) during a day-long strike by the city's high school students. In one incident, left-wing students threw stones at the Law Faculty in Rome University and members of the neo-fascist Italian Social Movement responded by throwing chair from upper windows.

    Students attempted to enter the Law Faculty but their attack was thwarted when police arrived. During the clash, at least one petrol bomb was thrown.

    In another incident, left-wing students stoned the headquarters of the Italian Social Movement. The stoning occurred when a break-way group of 400 members of the leftwing student movement started shouting slogans outside the neo-fascist organisation's headquarters.

    Pieces of wood, coal and water were thrown from the windows, and the students outside hurled back stones and insults until police drove them away.

    About 7,000 left-wing students joined two rival demonstrations in the Italian capital, protesting against condition in Italian schools and the arrest last week of a number of students during a school sit-in.

    About 5,000 marched through the city centre during the day's demonstrations, following a banner which proclaimed: "Unity of all students against the bosses".
