Transportation Strike as Protest

Italy's major cities found themselves less mobile this week, as groups banded together to protest Berlusconi. Major news sources, such as UPI, report 300,000 Romans participated in the protest, not only stopping transportation but turning out in the streets and piazzas.

To be in Rome on such a day... What a dream for we rhetoricians interested in resistance and transformation!
