Despite lockdown, Italian activists protest Saudi aggression against Yemen

SANAA, March 25 (YPA) – Activists in Italy protested against Saudi-led coalition aggression on Yemen that has been since March 25, 2015.

The activists raised a symbolic banner from their windows in solidarity with Yemen. The move coincided with the 5th anniversary of the aggression against Yemen.

“In 2015, since the first days of the Saudi aggression, we protested in Italy many times. Now in 2020, in Italy it is forbidden to go to the streets for protests because of the coronavirus… Let’s put a banner out of the windows. Stop arming Saudis,” Italian journalist and activist Marinella Correggia wrote on her Twitter account.

In Europe, Italy’s death toll has topped 6,000, with nearly 64,000 confirmed cases, as the country remains in near total lockdown.

In a slight glimmer of hope, Italy recorded a lower daily increase of cases for the second day in a row Monday.
