First of May in Parma

The local section of the USI-AIT, together with some other libertarian organizations, held a May Day demonstration in the city of Parma. According to the organizers, ¨Workers from different sectors, immigrants and students wanted to show that another type of union movement (militant and based in the class struggle)is not only possible, but necessary¨. About 600 people took part in the demonstration.

One group of immigrants participating in the demonstration also demanded the right to housing. One activist, a Tunisian immigrant, spoke about labour issues and related this to the right to decent housing.

There was mention of a recently squatted building, of the anti-TAV struggle and antifascism. The demonstration stopped to remember Antonio Cieri, participant in the antifascist barricades of Parma in 1922, killed during the Spanish Revolution.
