Italy: Thousands of anti-war protesters march through Rome

Italy, Rome
January 16, 2016 at 19:46 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands of anti-war protesters gathered in Rome, Saturday. Protesters held signs and banners reading “NATO = war and terrorism” and “no war, no NATO.”

Protester and Senator for the Italian Communist Party, Manuela Palermi, said “there's such acquiescence towards US, NATO and the EU that is really scary,” adding “we are here also because in a few days we will be at war again, in Libya, leading the NATO coalition. This is completely wrong."

A joint Italian-British force of 6,000 soldiers is to be deployed to Libya under the guise of combatting the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). It is currently estimated that there up to 4,000 IS combatants in the divided country.
