CasaPound rally starts despite revoked permit

Milan prefecture aware of situation

(ANSA) - Milan, September 11 - A rally organized by neo-fascist group CasaPound in the town of Castano Primo, about 45 minutes northwest of Milan, started on Friday despite the fact that the mayor of the town revoked the group's authorization on Thursday.
    "There are people coming from all over Italy, there are important guests, there's an organisation that's been working for a long time for this initiative, and at the last minute, the day before, they revoke authorisation. You can't do that," said CasaPound President Gianluca Iannone.
    The rally is scheduled to continue through Sunday.
    On Friday the Milan Prefecture held a meeting of its Provincial Committee for Order and Public Safety regarding the CasaPound rally and said it had "taken note" of the revoked authorisation "relative to the use of a marquee in the municipal territory".
    "The city of Castano Primo will inform judicial authorities immediately of any violations of the measure, together with the most opportune interventions," the Milan Prefecture said.
