Italian Motorists Haul Protesters Off Highway

A group of protesters representing, what they call, “the extinction rebellion” sat in the middle of a busy Rome, Italy thoroughfare. They unfurled a banner claiming the end is near and a bunch of other stuff and parked their butts on the busy road. The result being a traffic jam “as far as the eye could see.”

Italian’s, being patient and caring folk, listened to the protesters for, oh maybe 10-15 seconds, then started dragging their butts off the roadway. The demonstrators, who are against any fossil fuels for cars and coal fired electric plants, were dismayed when they recieved such a “violent” reception.

Pissed Off Italian’s dragging protesters off the toad

Some of the comments were “Get a job, we all have to go to work” and “How can you be so selfish” along with a few other choice remarks.

The constabulary showed up just before the motorists hung a few of the protesters off a bridge. The fools were taken into custody and transported to the prigione (Italian for jail). Thanks to my Sicilian wife for the translation.

A lotta cops have to put up with this foolishness from time to time. Maybe future protest of this nature can be addressed by the people who use the roadway in the course of their business…or maybe they’re just trying to get to work!
