Berlusconi calls for monthly PdL 'freedom square' protests

Rome, March 5 - The head of Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedoms (PdL) party on Tuesday called for public protests on March 23 to demonstrate against "concentric attacks" by prosecutors against Berlusconi. At a meeting of Lombardy PdL deputies elected to national parliament, Angelino Alfano - PdL secretary - said the party would organize a protest against "fiscal, bureaucratic and judicial oppression" later this month. Earlier Tuesday, Berlusconi - whose PdL led a center-right alliance into national elections February 24-25 - said during the meeting of newly elected PdL deputies that he would seek to bring his party and its supporters into the streets once a month in "freedom square" protests. Separately, in his speech to the party Berlusconi once again hinted at the idea of changing the party's name back to its original Forza Italia (Let's Go Italy).
