Italy: Students scuffle with police during demo against Bologna Uni. professor

Italy, Bologna
February 29, 2016 at 21:11 GMT +00:00 · Published

Scuffles broke out between police and a group of activists from the leftist 'Autonomous University Collective' (CUA) at Bologna University, Monday, as they protested against a political science professor Angelo Panebianco calling him a 'warmonger'.

Panebianco, who is currently the editor at leading Corriere della Sera daily, has been accused of propagating far-right theories and statements. One of his opinions is that Italy has allegedly relied for so long on the US military protection that it is not able to defend itself against outside threats, including that of the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS).

Last week a group of students disrupted Panebianco's lectures several times by playing sounds of bomb blasts. On Thursday, Bologna's Public Order and Security Committee introduced special protection measures for the professor.
