Rome, December 6 - Members of the far-right Forza
Nuova (FN) group lit flares outside the Rome HQ of liberal daily
La Repubblica Wednesday and threw a couple at staff, showing an
FN flag and a placard saying "Boycott La Repubblica and (sister
weekly) l'Espresso".
La Repubblica tweeted: "Fascism, Forza Nuova expedition under
the La Repubblica HQ: masked militants throw flares".
The protesters read out a series of accusations against La
Repubblica and l'Espresso.
The Green Party was among the first to voice solidarity with
La Repubblica over the incident.
Justice Minister Andrea Orlando, of the ruling centre-left
Democratic Party (PD), said "this incident gives the lie to all
those who deemed that the attention given to this issue was
excessive".
He said "there is an extremism which has reared its head,
which is contrary to Constitutional values, and to our freedoms,
and I think the Italian State and society must affirm those
values on which our Constitution is based.
PD leader and ex-premier Matteo Renzi tweeted: "My solidarity
and that of the PD to La Repubblica and its journalists. They
don't scare us. That past will not return #forward".
Roberto Speranza of the Free and Equal group said the
incident was "unacceptable".
