  • Description

    Thousands of people marched through the streets of Milan Saturday (24 April) to mark the 26th Anniversary of Italy's Liberation from Fascism. The march was also a protest against a recent wave of right-wing violence in Italy, culminating in a shooting incident Friday night in which a left-wing student was wounded. No incidents were reported in Saturday's march, but the atmosphere was tense after eight bomb attacks against left-wing organisations in and around Milan in the past week. The recent outburst of violence followed an anti-communist riot by about 1,500 neo-fascists in Milan a week ago.

    Saturday's march included groups of people were deported to Germany during the Second World War for their resistance activities. They marched behind placards bearing the name of the prison camps in which they were held.
