A threat protest groups must always be alive to is that they can be infiltrated by the far-right, and this seems to be the case in the Italian “Pitchfork Protests”. There are reports that groups sympathetic to Greece's fascist party, Golden Dawn, have become involved in the “Pitchfork Protests”.
Read the full report HERE:Last week students demonstrated in Turin, Italy's main unions rallied outside parliament, and protesters marched in Venice and Ancona. An Italian neo-fascist fringe group also scaled the front of the European Commission's Rome headquarters and tore down the EU flag.
Ten people including the deputy president of Casapound, far-right activists who aid the poor and venerate former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, were arrested and charged with theft, resisting authority and unauthorised protest, police said.
