"A banker like Draghi cannot serve the interests of the people, the ones who work and the impoverished middle class. Let's launch a real opposition against the Draghi government", pointed out Marco Rizzo, the General Secretary of the Communist Party, in a statement to reporters.
"The government, submitted to the Italian and foreign capitalist monopolies, is going to make the workers and popular classes pay the costs of the crisis of the globalized capitalist system", Rizzo added.
