In July 2001, over 200,000 people took to the streets of Genoa to protest against the ongoing G8 summit. Anti-globalization activists clashed with the police, with 23-year-old protester Carlo Giuliani shot dead after confronting a police vehicle that would later run him over twice. In the aftermath, the police organized a night raid on the Diaz high school, where around 100 unarmed people between protesters, mostly students, activist lawyers, and independent journalists who documented the police brutality during the protests had took shelter. What happened next would be called by Amnesty International "the most serious breach of democratic rights in a Western country since World War II."
