(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 3 - A Trieste bar owner was
still on the dome of St Peter's Basilica early on Wednesday
after spending the night on one of the holiest Catholic churches
to protest, among other things, against Premier Mario Monti's
government.
Marcello Di Finizio risked his life to climb down to a
ledge over a window on the dome late on Tuesday to hang a banner
that read: "Help!!! No more Monti, no more Europe, no more
multinationals. You are killing us all. Development??? This is
just social butchery".
Monti's emergency administration of non-political
technocrats has passed tough austerity measures and structural
economic reforms since stepping in after the eurozone crisis
forced Silvio Berlusconi to resign as premier last year.
Di Finizio is also angry about a European directive that
means permits to run seaside establishments like his must be put
up for auction.
The 46-year-old, who started his unusual demonstration at
around 17:000 local time Tuesday, also climbed the dome to stage
a protest in July.
The protester had a long telephone conversation with
Tourism and Sport Minister Piero Gnudi and European Affairs
Minister Enzo Moavero at around 23:000 local time Tuesday,
Vatican sources said, but they failed to persuade him to come
down.
Pope Benedict XVI was due to give his weekly General
Audience in St Peter's Square at 10:30 local time.
