On 17th of May, a demonstration for the commons and against privatizations and austerity took place in Rome.

Actually, I guess in Italy there is the most vital and active commons movement of our continent. And they are soooo creative. Just have a look at this one, calling for a demonstration in Siena a few days ago: rough translation:
I’ll apply the commons-therapy: .
Add beauty +
Subtract destruction –
Multiply the energies x
and Divide (share) ÷
= this operation is convenient for me!
