[07/07] This morning's mobilizations: a report

Following yesterday's arrests - of twenty one people from four different italian cities, Turin, Padova, Bologna and Aquila - there was a wave of university occupations across Italy. Today, the groups in Palermo and Bologna have also occupied the university directors' offices, as part of the first official day of action vs the G8.
This morning, a group of activists from Rome have used a huge gate to block the slip-road onto the A-24 motorway (which runs from Rome to Aquila), hanging banners and erecting tents. The blockade ended at approx 11.30am, and we learnt that at least three of the activists involved had been stopped by the police.
Meanwhile, 500 people from the "V Strategy" group had left the university occupation in order to block traffic in Via Ostiense (a major thoroughfare in central Rome).
