Rome, 15th october 2011
My intention was to shoot other kind of stories. But I was stuck in the middle of the riots and I wanted to report on the amazing job done by Carabinieri, Police etc, trying to protect the right of the peaceful demonstrants to keep on with their colorful protest / Antonio Amendola]
It started as a nice sunny saturday.
A peaceful demonstration of the Indignados from all over Europe (linkin Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Rome) shouting their protest vs the Western Governements alleged not to tackle the Economic Crisis properly.
Black Blocs wiped out their peaceful protest and pulled Rome into pure urban guerrilla.
