Students Clash with Police

Students clash with police during a demonstration on December 22, 2010 in Palermo, to protest against a radical reform of the university system planned by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government.

Rallies across the country came just over a week after protest clashes in the center of Rome that injured nearly 200 people and saw cars set alight. Tear gas was fired in some of the most tourist-heavy streets of the Italian capital.
