Continued Violence Against Students—This Time Rome

Student protests against fee hikes and program cuts continue throughout Europe. In Rome on Tuesday, students were met with more violence and repression, an eerie replay of events in England. Over 100 were injured and 23 arrested at the demonstration. The prosecutor plans to use an expedited criminal prosecution process known as “processo per direttissima,” which allows the judge to decide upon a verdict and sentence almost immediately.
