Rome, November 24 - A series of student protests
are scheduled across Italy on Saturday to demonstrate against
austerity measures and budget cuts to education.
Protests last week were marred with violence, with students
clashing with police who fired tear gas in attempts to quell
violence in Rome.
Some 30 people between students and police were injured.
The protests Saturday include plans to move from Piazza
della Repubblica, then to Piazza SS. Apostoli, as well as a
sit-in in front of the education ministry in the Trastevere
neighbourhood.
The protest plans appear to be strong despite a decision
made by the majority of school unions to cancel their backing
after a meeting with Italian Education Minister Francesco
Profumo on Thursday.
Italy's Communist Party on Friday said it was backing the
demonstrations, criticising a number of labor groups for having
withdrawn.
