Anti-racism protest held in Rome

On Saturday, a national demonstration against racism took place in Rome.


Nobody is a foreigner and all immigrants are entitled to the admission and residence permit was the message the organizer of the demonstration Stop Racism Committee was sending out.

Stop Racism is made up of several anti-racist groups which include Italians and non-Italians members.

After the recent spate of attacks on immigrants, the level of tension has risen in Italy. On Tuesday thousands of overseas Chinese marched through the streets of Rome to mourn a man and his baby daughter, killed during a robbery a few days earlier. On 17 December 2011, over 15 thousand people joined a demonstration in Florence to commemorate two Senegalese men gunned down by an Italian with far-right leanings.
