Workers continued protest at Constantine's Arch


Rome, September 13 - Protesting security workers
continued Friday to occupy an historic area near Rome's
Colosseum, demanding back pay and an extension of their work
The workers, who stayed at the Arch of Constantine
overnight Thursday, say they have not been paid for several
weeks and want an extension to their contract that ends Sept.
After scaling the giant marble arch and suspending a banner
calling for "Work, Rights, Dignity" they demanded a meeting with
Rome's mayor.
The protestors are part of a group of 146 workers at the
Istituto dell'Urbe security firm who are demanding that the city
of Rome respects a commitment it says was made to hire them.
A group of the same workers staged a similar protest on the
Colosseum in 2009.
The Arch of Constantine is situated between the Colosseum
and the Palatine Hill.
It was erected to commemorate Emperor Constantine I's
victory at the Battle of Milvian Bridge in 312.
