Angry business owners wearing shackles and chains descended on the Italian Parliament in Rome to protest against crippling lockdown measures that are keeping their bars and restaurants closed.
A number of arrests were made as members of the Italian Business Movement clashed with police.
“We put chains on ourselves because we can’t go ahead and accept this situation. We want to reclaim our jobs and our freedom,” one protester told the media.
Current restrictions mean that bars and restaurants are only allowed to open in the day for takeaway, although some of the protesters are vowing to defy the rules and open at night from tonight.
