Italy - 200,000 at Milan March In Defiance Of Racism

Anti Racist Protestors in Milan, Today.

An estimated 200,000 people have marched in Italy's financial capital Milan against policies by the populist Salvini-driven Coalition Government that they say promote racism.

The Milan city official in charge of migrant policy, Pierfrancesco Majorino, put the number of marchers under the banner "Prima Le Personne" - "People First" at 200,000.

He wrote on Twitter: "Salvini, count us," aimed at League leader Matteo Salvini, who as interior minister has blocked the arrival in Italy of humanitarian ships that have rescued migrants fleeing Libya.

The demonstration, which finished in front of the beautiful Duomo Cathedral, had a festival mood with bongo drums, trumpets and DJ music.

The head of the CGIL labor confederation, Maurizio Landini, said ...
Italy's government is promoting the wrong policies, and is not fighting the inequalities.
Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala stated ...
The rally was a powerful political testimonial that Italy is not just the country that it is currently being described as.
