Pro-Palestine activists in Italy launched a campaign to protest Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Italy, which is set to start on Thursday.
The campaign has been launched by the newly-formed activist collective Yalla Roma, which aims at bringing together several pro-Palestine groups operating in the Italian capital.
Activists put posters up around the city, featuring iconic Italian actors from the past, the likes of Anna Magnani and Nino Manfredi, wearing a kuffiya, with the writing: “Netanyahu, Rome Doesn’t Want You”.
The Palestinian community of Rome, along with other pro-Palestine groups, also organized a sit-in in downtown Rome on Thursday, under the title: Netanyahu, You Are Not Welcome.
Netanyahu will fly to Rome on Thursday for his third official trip since he returned to power in December.
