Pro-Palestine protesters in Florence, Pisa charged by police

Police in the Tuscan cities of Florence and Pisa on Friday charged demonstrators protesting in favour of Palestine as the Israel-Hamas war in Gaza showed no sign of letting up.

In Florence, police prevented students, union representatives and members of the Palestinian community from reaching the United States consulate.

In Pisa, they charged students trying to enter Piazza dei Cavalieri, the location of the main university campus that had been cordoned off.
