Second day of angry student protests in Italy
Text size Aa Aa

Italian students and teachers have staged another day of demonstrations against government reforms.

Hundreds have taken to the streets of Rome for the second day in a row.

The government maintains reform is needed to make universities more cost-effective, but protesters say the system will be worse.

One demonstrator said: “People like me will no longer exist. Researchers with a permanent contract will disappear, replaced by people hired on short-term contracts. Job precariousness will continue.”

Yesterday students attacked the Senate, and students held sit-ins at universities in other main centres.
