Riots in Rome
10/19/2013, Italy | In Rome, tens of thousands of people came to protest against the construction of a high-speed railway between Turin and Lyon. The tunnel, which is going to pave in the Alps, according to local residents will lead to an environmental catastrophe in the region. In connection with the exacerbation of the situation in the place where the construction of the tunnel should begin, military units were introduced there to protect the builders. A peaceful demonstration in Rome, joined by activists of anti-globalization movements, in the late afternoon grew into violent clashes with the police. About two hundred left-wingers in black hoods and masks covering their faces threw eggs at the building of the ministry of the country's housekeeper and started throwing incendiary bottles, homemade bombs and firecrackers to the police.
