(December 5, 2013) – Nationwide Strike on December 9-13, 2013 in Italy
A nationwide road transportation strike has been planned from December 9-13, 2013:
This so-called ‘9 Dicembre inizio della fine’ (9 December beginning of the end) is being organized over the social networks by the “Movimento dei Forconi” (Fork Movement) who promoted the event:
The objective of this protest, mainly led by the anger and desperation of the road transport companies and joined by all citizens wishing to adhere, is to paralyze the country so to obtain the departure from Parliament of all running official political forces.
The U.S. Embassy will not be held responsible for last-minute changes, and advises all U.S. citizens to check the media for changes in schedules and updates.
