  • Description

    CHAOS CONTINUED IN THE SICILIAN CAPITAL OF PALERMO YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) WHERE PUBLIC TRANSPORT HAS BEEN AT A STANDSTILL FOR THE LAST NINE DAYS. IT IS THE LONGEST STOPPAGE OF ITS KIND IN THE CITY'S HISTORY.

    SO FAR ALL ATTEMPTS TO SETTLE THE TRANSPORT STRIKE, OVER PAY AND CONDITIONS, HAVE BROKEN DOWN, LEAVING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE STRANDED.

    STRIKES HAVE ALSO HIT HARD AT THE CITY'S HOSPITAL AND MEDICAL FACILITIES. NURSES AND ORDERLIES HAVE GONE ON STRIKE OVER THE NON-PAYMENT OF LAST MONTH'S WAGES.

    THEY'VE BARRICADED THEMSELVES INSIDE THE VILLA SOFIA HOSPITAL AND HAVE COVERED THE BUILDING'S FACADE WITH BANNERS AND SLOGANS SUPPORTING THEIR CLAIMS.

    BOTH DOCTORS AND NURSES HAVE AGREED TO TREAT ONLY EMERGENCY CASES.
