(ANSA) - Naples, March 8 - Demonstrators and police clashed
outside the offices of Naples newspaper Il Mattino Wednesday
while anti-immigrant, anti-euro Northern League leader Matteo
Salvini was inside addressing a forum.
The protesters shouted slogans against the formerly
secessionist leader, who has turned his party into a nationwide
one but still regularly gets barracked in southern Italy.
"I'm ready to challenge (ex-premier and likely future
premiership candidate Matteo) Renzi (of the ruling centre-left
Democratic Party) and govern Italy better from tomorrow,"
Salvini told the forum.
He issued a message for Neapolitans: "Let's get to know one
another, let's learn to respect each other".
