Protesters are taking to the streets of Rome on Friday, October 15, to demonstrate against the mandatory requirement for workers in Italy to have the so-called ‘Green Pass,’ a digital or paper certificate showing that they have been vaccinated, tested negative, or recovered from COVID-19. From October 15 until December 31, 2021, the Green pass, which was already mandatory on public transportations and indoor spaces such as bars, restaurants, and theatres, will become compulsory to enter public and private workplaces. The measures are a first for Europe and some of the strictest in the world as anyone without a pass will reportedly face suspension from work and may have their pay stopped after five days. Following the announcement, several protests sparked around the country. Demonstrators, including members of far-right groups, marched in central Rome on Saturday and ended with scuffles with police. Members of what appeared to be the far-right group Forza Nuova stormed the headquarters of CGIL, the Italian General Confederation of Labour.
