Italy: 'Sardine' protesters pack Venice to protest against Salvini

Italy, Venice
December 13, 2019 at 22:44 GMT +00:00 · Published

Thousands of so-called 'Sardine' protesters rallied against League Party leader Matteo Salvini, in Venice on Friday.

Footage shows the protesters exhibiting numerous placards and banners depicting sardines, as well as placards against Salvini. Some protesters were also filmed singing Bella Ciao.

The movement held similar demonstrations in various cities across the country, such as Florence, Rimini, Milan, Bologna, Modena.

Regional elections are set to take place in eight Italian regions in 2020, with Salvini and his party seeking to repeat the success they achieved in the Umbrian elections in 2019, when an alliance led by the League brought five decades of the left-wing rule to an end.
