Silvio Berlusconi: Protesters Take To The Streets of Italy

According to The Telegraph:

Silvio Berlusconi, the 74 year-old Italian Prime Minister, watched on television as over a million protesters took to the streets today demanding his resignation.  Many of these protesters were women who believe their dignity and the status of their beloved Italy have been damaged by Berlusconi’s predilections for underage women. The scandal-ridden Berlusconi has other issues as well.

The women in the streets ranged from nuns to prostitutes who were unified in their outrage at Berlusconi. However, the insulated billionaire seem unswayed by the protest.

Listed below are current updates on Prime Minister Berlusconi and the growing anger by both women and men as well as the Vatican’s response:
