  • Description

    MORE THAN 10-THOUSAND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS AND SECONDARY SCHOOL CHILDREN MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF ROME TODAY (TUESDAY) IN PROTEST AGAINST THE ITALIAN EDUCATION SYSTEM.

    THE STUDENTS GATHERED NEAR THE COLOSSEUM AND THEN MADE THEIR WAY THROUGH THE ITALIAN CAPITAL TO THE GROUNDS OF ROME UNIVERSITY. THEY DEMANDED FROM THE POLICE THE RIGHT OF ASSEMBLY AND PROTESTED AGAINST THE SYSTEM UNDER WHICH THEY CLAIM RICH CHILDREN GET A GOOD EDUCATION AND POOR ONES ARE LEFT IGNORANT.

    LATER IN THE DAY LEFT WING STUDENTS TOOK OVER FOUR FACULTIES AT ROME UNIVERSITY. BUT ANOTHER FACULTY WAS OCCUPIED BY RIGHT WING STUDENTS WHO PUT UP SLOGANS SUCH AS "NO TO POLITICS IN THE UNIVERSITY" AND "NO TO MARXIST VIOLENCE." THEY SAID THEY MOVED IN TO PREVENT THE LEFT WING STUDENT MOVEMENT FROM TAKING OVER.
