Protest against high speed trains

On Saturday 5 February 2011, protests against the development of high-speed train services (TAV) will take place in the village of San Donà di Piave to the north-east of the Venice lagoon. The Italian environmental league, Legambiente, has organised the protest alongside local agricultural associations. This campaign threatens to limit much-needed high-speed train services for Venice and connecting cities. An article reporting the protests was published by the newspaper La Nuova di Venezia e Mestre on 4 February 2011 and can be read here:
