Italy: Water cannons and tear gas as anti-fascists clash in Bologna

Italy, Bologna
February 16, 2018 at 21:20 GMT -00:00 · Published

Police used water cannons and tear gas against anti-fascists in Piazza Galvani in Bologna on Thursday as they tried to block a political speech of far-right Forza Nuova party leader Roberto Fiore.

There was a previous clash earlier in the day as anti-fascist groups occupied Piazza Galvani Square trying to prevent the celebration of the political meeting. According to local media, five were injured during the first clashes.

Forza Nuova is running for election on March 4. However, the most recent poll put them way below the three percent threshold to elect representatives.

It comes as a number of protests have been held across Italy following the shooting of six migrants in Macerata by a gunman with neo-Nazi sympathies.

La policía utilizó cañones de agua y gas lacrimógeno contra los antifascistas en Piazza Galvani, en Bolonia, el jueves, mientras trataban de bloquear un discurso político del líder del partido ultraderechista Forza Nuova, Roberto Fiore.

Por la mañana hubo un enfrentamiento previos cuando los grupos antifascistas ocuparon la Plaza Piazza Galvani tratando de evitar la celebración de la reunión política. Según los medios locales, cinco personas resultaron heridas durante los primeros enfrentamientos.

Forza Nuova se presentará en las elecciones del 4 de marzo. Sin embargo, la encuesta más reciente los puso muy por debajo del umbral del tres por ciento para elegir representantes.

Los enfrentamientos se producen en toda Italia luego del tiroteo de seis inmigrantes en Macerata por parte de un pistolero con ideología neonazi.
