'No Monti Day' brings hundreds of thousands to the streets

Some 100-150,000 people marched in Rome alone in the so called "No Monti Day", against Mario Monti the Goldman Sachs' appointed manager of Italy.

A sea of red banners combined with egg and firecracker hatching in the Italian capital.

"We are here against Monti and his politics, the same politics as all over Europe, that brought Greece to its knees and that is destroying half of Europe, public schools, health care," said a demonstrator.

But Rome was not the only town to march, there were protests elsewhere in Italy. In the Northern town of  Riva del Garda, where Monti was babbling about "family values" (oh, so he's not apolitical after all?) the military police (carabinieri) attacked the citizens protesting outside, as can be seen in this Euronews video:
