For Palestine and "against the genocide" that is taking place in Gaza.

Thousands arrived in Milan from all over Italy to take part in the national anti-war procession which marched through the streets of the city and was attended by trade unions, antagonists, the association of Palestinians of Italy and the Young Palestinians, around 15 thousand people, including if the organizers claim that there were over 20 thousand people in the square.


A procession that took place without problems but in which there were some moments of tension when about ten participants, wearing black clothes and their faces covered, broke away near Piazzale Principessa Clotilde and daubed a Carrefour supermarket, damaging the windows with stones.


A local police officer, who was in a car at which stones were thrown, was left with minor head injuries and was taken to the nearby Fatebenefratelli hospital by 118 paramedics. Two other Gdf cars were damaged in the same moment.

Other moments of tension in Piazza della Repubblica where a group of activists, still with their faces covered, tried to take Via Turati to reach the United States consulate, and threw objects and also two incendiary orders - which did not ignite - at the officers in riot gear who prevented access and made them retreat.


But they were only brief moments.

The procession, monitored by the police, carabinieri and local police, arrived at its destination in Largo Cairoli around 5.15pm.

Among the signs displayed, there were also some "bloody" silhouettes of politicians, including Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Infrastructure Minister Matteo Salvini, Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and ministers Guido Crosetto and Giuseppe Valditara ("They preach 'peace' but spread hatred and violence" commented the secretary of the League).

There were also those who hung a notice on their backpack to the police, after what happened yesterday in Pisa: 'For every protester beaten, we will all respond together and you, a violent policeman, will be identified as a slave of the State.' Present at the demonstration, a few steps from Piazzale Loreto, also the former 5 Star MP Alessandro Di Battista.


Burnt Israeli flags, whistles at the sight of the one flying in front of the Pirellone, seat of the Regional Council but above all calls to "stop the genocide" were the leitmotif of the Milanese procession.

But demonstrations also took place in other cities.

In Friuli-Venezia Giulia, activists took to the streets in both Trieste and Udine, in Rome a flashmob took place in Piazza del Campidoglio in which the secretary of the national CGIL Maurizio Landini also participated.

Here various associations including Anpi, Acli and students waved a large flag of peace while in Turin, the students of the Law Collective made it known that they had presented a complaint to the International Criminal Court in The Hague "to understand - they wrote in a note - whether Netanyahu is just a prime minister incapable of defending his people or deserves to be indicted for deliberately ignoring the warning signs relating to October 7, in order to have justification for pursuing what appears to be his strategic choice to resolve the Palestinian conflict".
