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.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
