    Background: In Rome, 40,000 students and members of left-wing youth movements demonstrated on Thursday against what they called the "injustice and overbearing discipline" of school authorities.

    Several teachers at Rome's Castelnuovo High School were recently charged with failing to report political activities among their students. Since then, the demonstrators claimed, their petitions to the Ministry of Education calling for less rigidity in schools and better studying conditions have not been answered.

    Unemployed workers who have been occupying a closed-down soft drinks factory also joined in the demonstration.
