    The big three Italian trade unions buried their differences to organise a day of protest against austerity on Saturday, and mobilised at least 100,000 people from all over the country in Rome.

    A fleet of 1500 buses, 10 trains and ships from Sardinia were used to bring the workers, concerned about rising unemployment and what they call unfair taxes, to the capital.
