Mi Manifesto

Posted on Dec 14, 2009 | 1 comment

It was kind of fitting that my last day in town for a few weeks was greeted by yet another protest, which forced me to walk about 20 minutes to get to work. There were a bunch of protests in Rome last week for various causes, this yet another labor protest. Could there be a wave of change in Italy? With the huge anti-Berlusconi “No BDay” protests around the country and him being assaulted on his home turf of Milan, it seems like the seeds of discontent are starting to surface.

  1. I managed to catch two protests when I was in Rome over Thanksgiving–one was a labor protest, the other one was a women's rights thing. I don't have the latter pics up yet (I'll get around to 'em eventually) but the labor protest ones are up here: http://www.howiseelife.com/2009/12/16/day-5-naples-er-rome/
