Protests start the NO EXPO Five days of Milan

Filed under: , ,

On April 29th, a rally of activists and students took the street of Milan to start five days of demonstrations and sit-ins. The protesters are giving voice to their anger against EXPO's imminent opening. According to some of the demonstrators, the EXPO's organisation, already criticised for its corruption scandals, will not benefit Milan's citizens nor the millions of hungry people in the world, despite its theme of food and sustainability. This protest was the first of the so called "Five Days of Milan", title that recalls the namesake event of 1848 Italian Revolution's to gain independence and unite the country.
