Depending on whose giving the numbers an estimated 80M to 200M people marched in Vicenza on Saturday to express their firm stand against enlarging the U.S. base at Ederle to twice its current size and to express the existence of a strong pacifist sentiment in Italy.
Political and union leaders as well as citizens of all stripes voiced a need on the part of the Prodi gov’t to reassess the “yes” position on the doubling of the base and criticized sharply all those who they felt created “alarmism and manipulation” in an effort to thwart the manifestattion.
