  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Italy: Restaurant owners scuffle with police again in Rome lockdown protest” – below is their description.

    Police in Rome blocked hundreds of angry business owners from reaching the Italian Parliament as frustration builds over weeks of current pandemic lockdown measures.

    The protesters took to the streets on Monday to demand that the government lift a decree that bans restaurants, cafes and bars from offering table or counter service through April.

    The owners say government promises of compensation for some of their lost revenues aren’t enough to feed their families and keep paying idle workers on payrolls.

    Prime Minister Mario Draghi says unless the COVID-19 situation quickly improves and vaccination pace picks up, restrictions on dining at eateries will remain at least through this month.
