The whole area around Piazza dei Cavalieri, where the headquarters of the University of Pisa overlooks, is surrounded by the police.

The procession, made up of grassroots unions, students and the Palestinian community, started from Piazza Santissima Annunziata to reach, parading through the centre, Piazza Ognissanti and then continued along the Arno river towards the consulate.

A few dozen meters away there was a police barrier and when the demonstrators tried to advance, some lightening charges were fired.
