Video - Antifa Protests Mar Italian Elections As Violence Rises

The Italian government of Prime Minister Gentiloni has been obliged to send extra police to major cities like Milan and Rome today as thousands of Far-left Antifa protesters took to the streets to protest against the right-wing parties (which are leading in the polls) organizing political rallies for the elections of next week.

Various anti-fascist protests were held today: a national anti-fascist protest in Rome, a neo-fascist CasaPound rally in Turin and Naples.

Meanwhile, there were rival far-right Forza Nuova protests in Trieste and Palermo, and a protest by right-wing groups Lega Nord, CasaPound, and Forza Nuova in Milan.

According to one of the biggest Italian daily newspapers, the Corriere Della Sera, there were more than 70 acts of violence in the last month and a half related to the upcoming elections. These included stabbings, shootings, arson, paper bombs, and beatings.

A week ago, firebombs were thrown at migrant centers in the towns of Enna and Sermoneta and Antifa protesters fought with police in Bologna.

As it stands, the center-right party of former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who has joined forces with the right-wing nationalists of Lega Nord and Forza Nuova are set to win the election. Mr. Berlusconi, to please voters on the right, has vowed to send back some 600,000 African immigrants if he gets a majority in parliament.

Is everyone FINALLY beginning to see. ANTI-FA is a Internationally sponsored Socialist Protest group. ANY conservative nation based or centrist speech must be opposed according to their Globalist Socialist agenda.

These are serious radicals leading these snow flakes down a path.
