Popular road blockades and police violence in Italy tonight

The NO TAV (High Speed Rail) deflagration continues in Piemonte, as popular blockades of roads have continued with massive assistance, as apparent in the following video:

Police attacked the blockades however, causing some 100 injured. They also attacked vehicles of the NO TAV activists, burning them in several cases. So good for the rule of law and the sacredness of private property!

At 23:00, the popular assembly decided to call off the protests for the night and begin again today. However police continued the aggressions and raided bars and pizzerias, arbitrarily arresting alleged activists found in them.
