One million protest against Italy's austerity cuts

One million protest against Italy's austerity cuts 26 Jun 2010 Italians marched through cities and towns yesterday in a general strike protesting an austerity budget they say bleeds workers but spares the rich. The left-leaning CGIL union called the strike in an effort to force prime minister Silvio Berlusconi's government to redraft a €25 billion austerity package he says is an essential part of European efforts to save the currency. The website of the CGIL, Italy’s largest union, said more than one million people took part in various demonstrations in large and small cities around the country.
