  • Description

    INTRODUCTION: Hundreds of people gathered in the Pizza Della Scala in Milan on Wednesday (13 April) to protest against the growing climate of political tension and violence, especially kidnappings, in Italy. An ant-fascist committee in Milan was said to have organised the rally.

    SYNOPSIS: The protesters were angered by the recent kidnapping in Naples of Guido de Martino, son of the former Italian socialist leader Francesco de Martino. One of many rumours about the abducted man said his body was concealed inside a plastic bag, somewhere in Milan.

    The mayor of Milan, Signor Tonioli was among leading speakers at the rally. Kidnapping is one of the most persistent major crimes in Italy. Statistics showed that 230 people were snatched throughout the country in the twelve months to the end of July last year. During the same period there were almost a million and a half reported crimes of which eighty percent were listed as still unsolved.
