Rome, November 14 - Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno
blasted the Italian government Wednesday over the chaos
surrounding strikes and protests in his city during pan-European
anti-austerity rallies, which at one point included a stream of
demonstrators being directed into the city's Jewish Ghetto
quarter.
"I wonder what else needs to happen to get the government
and public security authorities to implement real regulations
for demonstrations in the capital of Italy," he said.
"You cannot continue on this path that threatens to
overwhelm the life of our city.
Demonstrations, which included thousands of students and
union workers, became heated at one point as hardline protesters
clashed with riot police and armored cars along the Tiber River
and outside the Ghetto, the oldest of its kind in the world.
Police said that the rally, which included a high number of
frightened minors, was diverted away from clashes and into the
nearby Ghetto, passing in front of the Synagogue.
The president of Rome's Jewish community, Riccardo
Pacifici, said the maneuver "created panic", prompting teachers
to lock the doors to Hebrew schools as lessons were ongoing.
"When a rally passes in front of the Synagogue,
unfortunately it prompts a certain reflex," said Pacifici. "We
understand the reasons for the rally, but what does it have to
do with us"?
