Tens of thousands of Italian union members and others demonstrated in the capital, Rome, on Saturday, against the “neo-fascists”.

This came in the wake of right-wing extremists storming the headquarters of the most powerful labor union in Italy, while protesting against the mandatory health certificate for the Corona virus to enter workplaces.

The protest was led by Maurizio Landini, head of the Sgel trade union, along with other labor leaders, as participants gathered in front of the Cathedral of St. John Lateran, according to the Associated Press.

The demonstrations carried the slogan: “Fascism will not return again,” and some participants waved flags that read “Yes to the vaccine”, which is a direct response to the demonstrators who destroyed the headquarters of “Segil”, the oldest in Italy, on 9 October, using sticks. and metal rods.

The demonstrators who destroyed the union headquarters were protesting against a government decision that came into effect on Friday, requiring proof of having obtained the anti-Corona vaccine, or showing a negative test conducted within the last 48 hours, or evidence of recovery from the virus, in order to enter the workplaces.

Landini explained that the demonstration aims to “defend democracy for all the people.”

He compared the attack on the union headquarters to the 1921 attacks by the newly founded National Fascist Party against union organizers.

Fascist leader Benito Mussolini came to power the following year and later entered Italy into World War II as an ally of Nazi Germany.

In this context, the Italian Confederation of Trade Unions, Luigi Spara, condemned the attack on the unions led by the far-right Forza Nuova party, and called for the swift dissolution of the party by the Italian authorities.
