On Saturday 9th October, during a demonstration in Rome (Italy) led by exponents of fascist groups, dozens of demonstrators invaded the headquarters of the Italian General Confederation of Labour (CGIL), one of the largest confederal trade unions in Italy.

This attack recalls the attacks on the Chambers of Labour by fascist squads in 1920, a prelude to the later dictatorship of Mussolini.

The European Democratic Lawyers express their
solidarity with the Italian workers and trade unions for this vile attack, and strongly condemn the subversive groups that carried out this action, including Forza Nuova, a fascist party.

And we express our suport for CGIL.

We shall be united against fascism!
