Thousands of opponents of Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his government’s policies joined a Lega Nord (Northern League) party rally on Piazza del Popolo (People's Square) in Rome on Saturday. Waving anti-EU and anti-migration flags and banners, protesters listened to Lega Nord leader Matteo Salvini, who spoke against the current government and its policies. Police blocked all streets leading to Piazza del Popolo to prevent the possible clashing of rival marchers.
