    Background: About 40 people were injured, and over 80 arrested, after violent rioting by neo-fascists on Saturday (17 April) in Milan. The trouble started after right-wing groups defied a police ban and attempted to stage an anti-communist march through the city streets.

    Police ordered the marchers to disperse, and when they refused, charged them. Several hours of rioting followed during which a fire was started at the recently-opened offices of the Italy-People's Republic of China Association.

    Police had banned the demonstration early on Saturday after trouble between left and right wing factions the previous night. The rioting followed allegations in a right-wing Rome newspaper that 20,000 people in Milan belonged to extremist para-military organisations, mostly of the extreme left.
