[January 27] is held in Italy as a memorial for those who died fighting against Benito Mussolini's fascist government before and during World War II.
Davide Boni of the Northern League Party told Press TV, “People have been talking out against the Northern League and Silvio Berlusconi for years but nothing ever changes. It is just a tactic to sell more newspapers and divert attention away from other problems. The Left plays a part of this game as they are the ones who keep bringing this question up.”
Italy has seen a wave of protests directed at the Berlusconi regime. On Wednesday, a nationwide transportation strike caused heavy delays as workers protested government spending cuts for public transportation.
