Italy's anti-austerity rally turns violent

Via al Jazeera:

Protests against Italy's cuts in public spending have turned violent on the streets of Rome.

Demonstrators fought with police for a second day, objecting to the government's economic policies and a freeze on public sector wages.

Al Jazeera's Sonia Gallego reports from Rome.

2 minute video report at link.

The young, the disenfranchised, and the illegal. Typical rent-a-mob.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
