They set fire to mattresses to protest against
asylum seekersinvaders being settled in their communities.

This is from Casale San Nicola. It shows the protesters, just ordinary people who lived in the area, mostly women, being dragged away by the police then a bus full of invaders being brought in.

So the invaders can now prey on them with impunity.
