Italian police have used tear gas and water cannons to disperse hundreds of people demonstrating in Rome against coronavirus vaccinations, keeping them away from the prime minister’s office.
About 10,000 people took to the streets in the heart of the Italian capital to protest against the green crossing, a digital certificate or letter indicating that someone has received at least one dose of the vaccine, tested negative for Covid-19 or recently cured from the virus.
According to Italian media, police lined up with riot gear to control the protesters, who are backed by far-right far-right groups.
The protests came just days before the green crossing law went into effect, making it mandatory for all workers, in the latest attempt by Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s broad coalition to persuade citizens to get vaccinated.
