(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 22 – Turin police have reported around 30
people to prosecutors and have put one person under house
arrest in relation to a march in the northern city on May Day
2019 that turned violent.
    The focus of the investigation was on the Askatasuna ‘social
centre’, a sort of left-wing community centre that are
widespread in Italy and are often housed in occupied premises.
    Indeed, the person under house arrest is the 37-year-old leader
of Askatasuna.
    Three other people were barred from living in Turin, while nine
have been ordered to regularly sign in with the police.
    Violence broke out on several occasions during the 2019 May Day
march, especially at the end, when protesters threw bottles and
other objects at cops as they tried to break through a police
cordon. (ANSA).
