Photographer's Note

During the peace protests in Europe I was in Rome where one of the largest protests took place. In several photographs I have tried to capture what happened from both sides. One thing I noticed is how the Italian police seemed to be disorganised and how over the top they go in numbers and actions.
The police are formed by three forces, the Carabinieri which are the elite semi military police (and scary), the Polizia and the Vigili Urbani.
I was trying to capture how many of the police here were needed to hold up the protesters which are just coming down the street. I can't say how many protesters their were but I believe it was several hundred thousand.
