Alcoa workers clash with police at Sardinian ex-mine


Carbonia, November 13 - Alcoa aluminum workers
clashed with police in anti-riot gear on Tuesday at the entrance
to an ex-mine and mine museum in the depressed Sulcis area in
southwestern Sardinia, where highly ranked representatives of
the Italian government are attending a series of institutional
meetings with local and regional government heads.
The Alcoa workers broke fencing at the Great Serbariu Mine,
shouted slogans against the US aluminum giant and lobbed
firecrackers before the arrival of Territorial Cohesion Minister
Fabrizio Barca, Industry Minister Corrado Passera and Passera's
deputy Claudio De Vincenti.
The state government representatives are to sign an accord
on Tuesday with the Sardinian governor, Ugo Cappellacci,
defining a protocol for the economic development of Sulcis, a
province that suffers the highest youth-unemployment rate in
Italy and is one of Italy's poorest areas.
The Alcoa workers are employees of the troubled aluminum
smelter in Portovesme, which shut down the last of its cells on
Thursday, November 1, in the wake of a decision to power down
the plant that has pitted workers against the Italian government
and the American aluminium company.
The smelter, which employs hundreds of people in the area,
is now technically at a standstill, but Alcoa has promised to
keep all workers at its Portovesme plant employed through the
end of the year.
