(ANSA) - Vatican City, October 4 - A Trieste bar owner
ended a protest of over 24 hours on the dome of St Peter's
Basilica late on Wednesday.
Marcello Di Finizio climbed to the peak of one of the
holiest Catholic churches on Tuesday to protest against Premier
Mario Monti's government.
The 46-year-old was also angry about a European directive
that means permits to run seaside establishments like his must
be put up for auction.
He risked his life by climbing down to a ledge over a
window on the dome 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 also climbed the dome to stage a protest in
July.
Pope Benedict XVI gave his weekly General Audience in St
Peter's Square on Wednesday while the protest was taking place.
