On Wednesday 2nd April 2003 a General Strike was called by the
following "base unions" [grassroots, radical unions]: CUB,
COBAS, SIN COBAS, USI-AIT and SLAI COBAS. All were extremely
happy with the turnout which saw approximately 1 million on
strike and a quarter of a million at various demonstrations and
marches throughout the country.

The General Strike was proclaimed as part of the anti-war
efforts by unions against the illegitimate war being carried out
by Britain and the USA which is fully supported by the Italian
government despite a majority of the population rejecting it.

Photos from demos in various cities can be found at:
