    Background: Italian policemen marched through the streets of Rome on December 9, to protest at government legislation which they say will prevent them from being promoted. Police marshals, belonging to the autonomous police trade union leaders denounce the legislation. The new law makes it necessary for police wishing to reach the grade of inspector to pass an examination. some 8,000 'older' police marshals believe they will suffer from the new requirements, because they do not have the qualifications enabling them to sit the examination.
