Italy’s ‘Sardines’ pack Rome for anti far-right rally

The “Sardines” have become a symbol of protest against far-right firebrand leader Matteo Salvini, who served as interior minister and deputy Prime Minister in Italy’s previous coalition government and cracked down on immigration.

Students, pensioners and families with children filled Rome’s San Giovanni Square to protest against Matteo Salvini.

The movement, only a month old, started in Bologna when a rally organised by four unknown activists to denounce Salvini’s discourse of “hatred and division” drew a crowd of 15 thousand surprising everybody.
