Anti-austerity march through Rome

An estimated 25,000 marched through Rome on Saturday against austerity measures, including cuts to welfare programs and a shortage in low-income housing.

Protesters reportedly threw eggs and firecrackers at the Finance Ministry as the demonstration marched past.
Over 4,000 riot police were deployed, making 11 arrests. The Associated Press said, “There were moments of tension when demonstrators passed near the headquarters of an extreme-right group, but police intervened when a few bottles were thrown.” The day before, a 24-hour nationwide strike disrupted travel. Airports in Rome, Naples, Milan and Bologna were forced to cancel some flights. Some school and health workers also went on strike.
A protest of around 600 workers also took place in Milan.
