Death of Demonstrator Protested

Death of Demonstrator Protested

By NICOLE WINFIELD, Associated Press Writer

ROME (AP) - Tens of thousands marched in cities across Italy on Tuesday, demanding the resignation of the interior minister over the death of a protester during the Group of Eight summit.

In Parliament, the opposition called for Interior Minister Claudio Scajola to face a vote of confidence and urged lawmakers to investigate the violence at the Genoa summit.

The peaceful marches - attended by activists, opposition politicians and ordinary Italians - came a day before the funeral of 23-year-old Carlo Guiliani, who was shot dead by a police officer Friday as he tried to rush a Carabinieri jeep with a fire extinguisher.

``Carlo - your blood is our blood,'' read a banner carried at a Rome march of several thousand people. Many protesters called for the resignation of Scajola - head of the nation's police - and pasted bull's-eyes on their foreheads and bodies to show police where they could aim.

``This is not just a funeral for Carlo, but also a demonstration for the future,'' said Sara Piazza, 29, who went to Genoa to demonstrate peacefully. ``We went to Genoa thinking we could say something, but our mouths were shut.''

Rome's demonstration was by far the largest, but others across Italy were significant. Between 10,000 and 15,000 people braved the rain in Milan, another 15,000 marched in Bologna, 15,000 in Naples, 10,000 in Genoa, 5,000 in Florence, 5,000 in Brescia, 7,000 in the northeastern city of Trieste and a few hundred in the southern city of Potenza, the ANSA news agency said, citing official estimates.

The government of conservative Premier Silvio Berlusconi has said it supports Scajola and Italy's law enforcement agencies. Berlusconi's coalition has majorities in both the Senate and the lower Chamber of Deputies, making it unlikely a confidence vote against Scajola would succeed as long as the government supports him.

In Greece, more than a thousand demonstrators, chanting ``Berlusconi Murderer, marched toward the Italian embassy in Athens, but were turned away by riot police.

Some youths smashed bank windows and hurled stones at riot police, who fired tear gas. Police reported no injuries or arrests.

More than 3,000 Greeks had attended the protests in Genoa, during the meeting of leaders from the United States, Canada, Japan, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Russia.

During the three-day summit which ended Sunday, a small group of violent protesters smashed storefront windows, torched cars and trash bins and threw rocks and firebombs at police, who responded by clubbing protesters and firing tear gas at them.

At least 400 people were injured and more than 280 were arrested. Damage has been estimated at million.

Amnesty International on Tuesday urged Italian authorities to respect the rights of those still detained - many of them foreigners - saying several still hadn't had access to a lawyer.

Police in Genoa were still out in force Tuesday, arresting at least nine people and confiscating homemade weapons, ANSA said.

About 200 people staged a sit-in in Genoa Tuesday evening in front of the Palazzo Ducale, where the leaders of the G-8 met.

``Nobody did anything to avoid Carlo's death,'' said Eleonora Chiesa, 22. She held a communist newspaper whose headline read: ``Minister, go away,'' referring to Scajola.
