On the list of candidates being presented by the Italian Communist PRC party, there are a few worker candidates one of whom, Domenico Loffredo standing in the Italy South constituency, has been involved in leading the struggles at the FIAT Pomigliano car plant near Naples and is also a Marxist and supporter of FalceMartello. Here we publish a brief interview with Domenico.

Italy is feeling the full brunt of the world economic crisis. Industry almost came to a complete halt in January, with hundreds of thousands of workers losing their jobs. This is provoking a very angry mood within the working class. The FIAT workers are presently in the vanguard of this process, but it is spreading to all layers of society.

After a period of youth protests that have shaken Italy, last Friday the workers responded well to the general strike called by the CGIL trade union confederation against the economic policies of the Berlusconi government.
