Foggia, March 21 - Italy on Wednesday marked the
23rd annual day of remembrance for the innocent victims of the
mafia with events all over the country.
The main march was held in the Puglia city of Foggia,
attended by thousands of people and led by anti-mafia priest
Father Luigi Ciotti.
Events will be held simultaneously in another 14,000 places
in Italy, Europe and Latin America.
Prominent victims of Italy's three main mafias were
remembered.
In all, one million people were reported to have marched in
the events.
Victims relatives demanded justice, filing past with photos
of their late loves ones and holding up banners saying "Silence
is the Mafia".
Successive governments have vowed to up the fight against
Italy's mafias, which come from the southern regions of Sicily
(Cosa Nostra), Campania (Camorra) and Calabria ('Ndrangheta) but
which have spread their tentacles both nationally and
internationally.
