Italy's largest trade union, Cgil, with the participation of all other unions in the country, is organizing today, from 14:00 local time, a mobilization with the slogan "never again fascism". The central square of San Giovanni is expected to be filled with at least 50.000 citizens.

This is a clear response to the neo-fascist attack on Cgil headquarters, always in Rome, last Saturday, following a demonstration by anti-vaccines.

Today's mobilization is supported by the Italian center-left, the Five Stars and the forces of the left. The center-right faction decided not to participate, on the grounds that all extreme behavior should be condemned, but a political tone could not be given in a mass demonstration, a few hours before the second round of municipal elections.

The secretary of the center-left Democratic Party, Enrico Letta, however, replied that "the clear condemnation of the political forces and organizations that maintain, as a main point of reference, the fascist ideology" is paramount. "Today we will not take party flags with us, but only that of Italy," Letta added.

To take part in the mobilization of San Giovanni Square, union members from all over Italy arrived in Rome. With eight hundred buses, ten trains and special flights from Sicily and Sardinia.

The presence of the police forces will be massive, in order to avoid provocations by neo-fascist groups.

"In this way we will make it clear that Rome belongs to the forces and organizations that respect and defend democracy, workers' rights and the weakest," said Cgil union secretary Maurizio Ladini.
