On Saturday 5th March, in Rome a demonstration announced two weeks ago to demand equal rights for gays and lesbians took place in Piazza del Popolo. The law approved in the Senate is a first step, but it is considered inadequate. It is necessary to obtain stepchild adoption to protect children, who were in the square in large numbers. Amnesty International, Cgil (an important union) and several political parties endorsed the demonstration.
