Anti-fascists vs cops: Violent clashes outside right-wing memorial demo in Italy

Clashes erupted in Pavia on Wednesday, between police and anti-fascist protesters who were trying to interrupt a right-wing memorial for the victims of the Foibe massacres.

Following the Second World War, Italy's right-wing alliance adopted the commemoration of those who died in the foibe as part of an anti-communist propaganda campaign.

Although the National Memorial Day of Exiles and Foibe is generally accepted in Italy, many supporters of the political left view its recent rise in popularity as a manifestation of neo-fascist revisionism.
