The ‘Pitchfork Movement’ as it is known was originally a group of Sicilian farmers pushing for more help from the government but has grown into a wider movement.

Demonstrators are angry about a range of issues including globalisation, taxes, fuel prices and the euro.

One protester said:“We must recover our dignity. That means jobs, social protection and rights. So far we just have duties”

Many share the protesters’ anger and at one point police officers in Turin took off their helmets, in a show of solidarity.
