Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Gli irriducibili sono tre-quattrocento. Tentano di partire in corteo quando capiscono che piazza Fontana è blindata e inaccessibile. E soprattutto che le forze dell'ordine non consentiranno alcuna manifestazione. I primi vengono bloccati e identificati già alle 16. Il corteo però fa poco più di cento metri per finire, bloccato dai cordoni di poliziotti e carabinieri, davanti a Palazzo Reale

Demonstrations undermined with harsh police policy and prosecution ...

"The police pincer strategy works: protest numbers collapse"

    In total, the No passes never exceed a thousand. A very different number from the one expected by the "call to arms" which started for days via chat. After Saturday's half flop, yesterday's one can now be considered an evident downsizing of the movement at the 18th demonstration and which had blocked the city (and some trade routes) without rules and with never less than 5-6 thousand people 16 times. Sometimes well over ten thousand.
