WANT CHANGE: Over 40,000 Italians on Saturday took to the streets to demand that the government do something about the uncontrolled immigration into the country.
Italy has over 4.4 million registered immigrants and 670,000 illegal immigrants.
Meanwhile, the unemployment rate for young people in the country is 44%.
The demonstration used the slogan "Stop the Invasion" and was held on Saturday.
Other slogans were "Italians first," "They invade us, and we pay", "No to more mosques," "Fewer immigrants = fewer diseases" and "We want to put children into the world, and not import illegals."
On the other side, 3,000 counter-demonstrators met up, less than ten percent of the main demonstration, to protest their immigration opponents.
Italy is struggling with a horrible high immigration. According to the Boston Globe, in 2008 Italy already had 670,000 undocumented migrants within its borders. The total number of registered immigrants in the country will account for as much as 4.4 million people. And every year tens of thousands of people are arriving by boats, many with their lives at stake.
In just the first four months of 2014, there were over 25,000 African refugees to the island of Sicily.
These figures have led to many Italians have had enough. The streets have become dangerous, welfare being demolished and unemployment is already very high in Italy, especially for young people, and it's pushed further by the new arrivals. Each time the Italian authorities have tried to stop the illegal immigration it has received strict directives from the European Union to comply with international laws for people in need. But there is a cost. Just the last actions by the Italian Navy has a price tag of over 10 million euros.
The bill is handed to the taxpayers in a country already burdened by economic recession and high unemployment.
