Italy teachers, lawmakers protest to demand citizenship law

In this picture taken Tuesday, Set. 19, 2017, demonstrators hold a banner, left, and a replica of the Italian Passport reading: reading: Italians without citizenship, who is born or grows in Italy is Italian, during a protest demanding the approval of the citizenship law for children outside the Italian Parliament in Rome. The politically fraught debate in Italy over whether to accelerate citizenship for children of immigrants took on last-ditch urgency Thursday, Oct. 5, 2017, as politicians joined a symbolic hunger strike launched by teachers demanding equal rights for their students.
