I am reading reports of riots in Rome, Italy, from a similar movement that has been spreading across the world called Occupy Wall Street. A movement, for the most part, against corporate greed.
"a few thousand thugs from all over Italy, and possibly from all over Europe, who infiltrated the demonstration."
Some of the museums in Rome had to shut down due to the violence. We will have to keep an eye on this to see if it is an isolated incident, or if there will be more upcoming riots. Obviously, this can have a huge impact on Italian tourism, a major economic engine for the European country. Ironically, these protestors can make the economic situation worse if Italy suffers a black eye in the world public perception (i.e. see Greece). What do you think?
