On October 15 Rome saw one of the biggest demonstrations of the last few years in Italy. Up to half a million people flooded the streets of the capital. Not only was this a huge demonstration in terms of the numbers taking part, but even more significantly you could hear the most radical slogans of the last decade. The masses, inspired by Athens, Madrid and New York, chanted “we don’t want to pay the debt”, “No to austerity”, “No to the dictatorship of the ECB and the banks”, etc.

This week marks the tenth anniversary of the demonstrations against the G8 in Genoa. Those demonstrations are still remembered today because of the brutal repression by the police and the forces of the state, which led to the murder of Carlo Giuliani.
