Students arrested on 14th Dec are all free!

The 23 people arrested after the riots of 14th December have all been released this afternoon. One is under house arrest because he’s been accused of throwing stones at the police. Unsurprisingly, Alemanno (Rome’s right wing mayor) has been ranting about the magistrates’ decision on all media (he declared he felt “forced to protest against it”…).

"Cuts" by Vauro (the woman is MP Gelmini)

What’s interesting is that the lawyer of one of the defendants has used this video in court as evidence of the police’ violence against the protesters. The questore (prosecutor) has announced an internal investigation on the police’ brutality.
