  • Description

    More than two thousand a Italy's war wounded staged a demonstration through the centre of Rome on Thursday (13 November) in support of their demand for higher pensions and allowances.

    The protestors began their march outside the historic Castel san Angelo -- Italy's war pensions administrative headquarters.

    At the movement, totally incapacitated veterans receive approximately GBP120 sterling (261 U.S. dollars) each month.

    The rally organisers -- including Mr. Elovisio Elmo, President of the Italian War Wounded Association -- claim that inflation in Italy has bitten most deeply to the living standards of those with fixed incomes, such as war pensions.
