Protests against Berlusconi
Berlusconi is on trial on charges he had sex with a 17 year old girl (he is 74) - which is a crime in Italy - and tried to cover it up by taking advantages of his powers as prime minister. Berlusconi is trying to subvert constitutional order by limiting judicial independence, just in order to avoid being investigated for its actual conduct (sex scandals) and his conduct when he was an entrepreneur (charged for tax evasion, bribery). Protests took place around his villa near Milan on February, 6th. Another protest took place on Milan on February 13th.
