Rom: Wenn Empörung zu Wut wird

Sonntag, Oktober 16th, 2011

Etwa 200’000 Leute versammeln sich am 15.Oktober in Rom für den Marsch der italienischen Empörten. Einen Marsch, auf den alle antagonistischen Bewegungen gewartet haben. Prekäre, soziale Zentren, Anti-Autoritäre, die Bewegung NO-TAV, Autonome, Basisgewerkschaften, Reformisten, Disobbedienti, Studenten sind alle auf der Strasse, oft mit sehr verschiedenen Zielen.
Von Beginn weg der Demo greifen etwa 1000 Leute – einige hinter dem Transparent „Wir fragen nicht nach einer Zukunft, wir holen uns die Gegenwart zurück“ – die direkten Verantwortlichen unserer Misere an. Ein Luxussupermarkt wird aufgebrochen und geplündert, die Produkte werden an die Demonstranten verteilt. Luxusautos fangen plötzlich zu brennen an, die Schaufenster der Banken fallen und eine italienische Flagge an einem Luxushotel wird abgerissen.
