When In Rome

Abby Zimet

Around 50 left-wing Italian city officials dropped their pants
at a Rome protest
calling for passage of a budget being stalled by the city's right-wing
mayor.  The protesters say parks, schools and the homeless are being
hurt. Maybe this would work here. Probably not.

"(Mayor) Alemanno has reduced us to our
underwear," read one poster.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
