  March on Rome Information
The March on Rome was a pseudo-coup d'état by which Mussolini's National Fascist Party came to power in Italy.
The march itself was composed of less than 30,000 men, but the king in part feared a civil war since the squadristi had already taken control of the Po plain and most part of the country, while Fascism was no longer seen as a threat to the establishment.
The March on Rome was not the conquest of power which Fascism later celebrated but rather a transfer of power within the framework of the constitution, a transfer made possible by the surrender of public authorities in the face of fascist intimidation and the complicity of the bourgeoisie, who thought it possible to instrumentalize Mussolini.

Today, March 10, many newspapers have tried to distort this marvelous demonstration describing it as one of the usual pacifist marches, which call for equal distance from both the Zionist butchers and Palestinian victims, which condemn any form of violence "from any side." This is a lie.
