According to Ansha News Agency, on April 6th local time, catering and business operators in many Italian cities held a protest, demanding that the government lift epidemic prevention restrictions and allow them to reopen.
The Parliament Square in the capital Rome gathered a large number of protesters on the 6th, and dozens of demonstrators tried to break through the police blockade. In the process, skirmishes broke out between the two sides, resulting in the injury of a policeman and the arrest of several demonstrators. Similar protests broke out in Milan, Barry, Imperia and other cities on that day.
According to the latest epidemic risk assessment, nearly half of Italy’s regions are currently implementing the strictest “red” level control measures, and the rest of the country adopts “orange” level control measures.
This means that all catering places can only provide food delivery and take-out services, and non-living essential business places are restricted from business.
