  • Description

    MILAN- ITALY'S MAJOR INDUSTRIAL CITY - WAS YESTERDAY (SUNDAY) THE SCENE OF A SERIES OF CLASHES BETWEEN RIOT POLICE AND THOUSANDS OF RIOTING NEO-FASCIST YOUTHS. IT WAS THE SECOND DAY OF DEMONSTRATIONS IN THE CITY - BUT THE REASONS FOR THE PROTESTS WERE DIFFERENT ON EACH DAY.

    SATURDAY'S PROTEST WAS STAGED BY TENS OF THOUSANDS OF LEFT-WING STUDENTS (SUPPORTED BY TRADE UNIONISTS AND JOURNALISTS), CLAIMING THAT MORE THAN 10,000 WORKERS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY HAVE BEEN CHARGED UNDER OUTDATED FASCIST LAWS FOLLOWING LAST YEAR'S WAVE OF STRIKES AND LABOUR UNREST. YESTERDAY'S DEMONSTRATORS WERE OUT TO OPPOSE THE LEFT-WING CLAIMS-ATTEMPTING TO STORM THE UNIVERSITY CENTRE, EXPLODING SMOKE BOMBS, CARRYING FASCIST BANNERS AND, IN ONE CASE A CUDGEL BEARING THE LEGEND "MUSSOLINI, I SHALL AVENGE YOU."
    THE MARCH BEGAN AFTER A NEO-FASCIST RALLY HAD TAKEN PLACE WITH DELEGATES FROM SPAIN, PORTUGAL, FRANCE AND BULGARIA. WHERE THE PREVIOUS DAY'S MARCH HAD BEEN ORDERLY, YESTERDAY'S BECAME VIOLENT AND THERE WERE SEVERAL INJURIES AND ARRESTS. THOSE ARRESTED WERE LATER RELEASED, BUT WILL HAVE TO FACE CHARGES OF NOT DISPERSING WHEN ORDERED TO DO SO.
