Dozens of protesters gathered to demonstrate against the eviction of migrant squatters from an abandoned school building in the outskirts of Rome on Monday.
In an attempt to prevent the police from entering the building, residents had earlier set fire to mattresses and garbage, according to reports.
The eviction order comes as part an ongoing operation to empty certain occupied buildings... Еще, which Interior Minister Matteo Salvini described as dangerous to women and children. He has warned that Italy had “no tolerance” towards it.
Alternative housing will be provided to 200 people affected by the eviction according to a reported statement made by city hall officials.
