A week after the Pisa protests, students from all over Italy returned to the streets to demonstrate solidarity and closeness to the Palestinian people.

Some exponents of the Democratic Party and the left took part in the demonstration, punctuated by continuous slogans against "fascist and terrorist Israel", including the president of the province, the dem Massimiliano Angori.

With the sound of bombs ringing in the speakers, the procession crossed the streets of the capital, also chanting slogans against Segre and the prime minister, to end in front of La Sapienza university where the students chanted 'Bella Ciao'.

Before leaving, the demonstrators gathered in a minute of silence to commemorate the dead of the "flour massacre", which saw "150 killed and more than a thousand injured" only because "they wanted to recover something to feed their children ".

There was no shortage of slogans against Meloni and Biden here too.

And while the students paraded through the streets and squares, members of the Brothers of Italy instead visited the police stations as a sign of solidarity with the police officers, victims of threats and insults following the charges in Pisa.

Only yesterday a director of the Digos of Bologna was hit by red paint thrown by the student collective demonstration.

And also some militants of the Brothers of Italy, among other things, were attacked in the morning in Turin by opponents of the social centers while leafleting was in progress.

From Rieti to Catanzaro, from Biella to Cagliari, the delegations of Giorgia Meloni's party shook hands with the police.

"They - they say - are our security garrison, which is why we will always fight to protect them".
