Italian far-right clash with riot police over ‘dictatorship’ of Covid-19 rules (Vids)

RT —————————————–Sunday, Oct. 25, 2020

Street battles erupted in central Rome overnight as Italian police dispersed a group of 200 far-right demonstrators, who staged a violent protest against the government’s Covid-19 restrictions.

Skirmishes erupted shortly after midnight and were focused around Rome’s iconic Piazza del Popolo. The square was supposed to host a rally organized by the Fuerza Nova party, which its leadership promised to be a peaceful act of civil disobedience against “health dictatorship and curfews”.

According to local media, the promise was broken by masked protesters at around midnight. A firework in the colors of the Italian flag was launched in the air, apparently serving as a signal to attack riot police with pyrotechnics and other projectiles.

Clashes ensued, during which law enforcement pushed the demonstrators out of the square. Some fighting also happened around Piazza Trilussa.

Eight people were arrested over night. Some dumpsters and vehicles were reportedly set on fire, but no significant property damage was reported. The clashes in Rome came after similar violence in Naples on Friday night.

The night skirmishes happened hours after a peaceful protest against Covid-19 restrictions took place in the Italian capital. The southern European country is struggling to contain the infection, which is reaching record daily levels.

But many Italians are weary of localized shutdowns and curfews and oppose government plans for further restrictions. Italy is already suffering its worst economic recession since World War II, after a two-month national lockdown in spring.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
