Thousands rallied in the streets of Macerta, Italy, against the far right on February 10, after a shooter injured six foreign nationals there a week ago. On February 3, Luca Traini allegedly fired a gun out of his car for more than two hours, targeting people who appeared to be from African countries. Traini stood as a candidate for the Lega Nord in local elections in 2017. In this footage from the protest, a group of people who also appear to be African or of African background chant antifascist slogans. Italy is holding parliamentary elections on March 4 under a new election law, and polls show the far right Lega Nord has the most support of any single party. Credit: Sara Pagnanelli via Storyful
