This weekend, over 50,000 restaurants in Italy began defying the country’s strict ‘anti-Covid’ lockdown measures in a massive act of civil disobedience according to Off-Guardian.

Italian restaurant owners have been spreading their “I Am Open” message through the social media hashtag #IoApro (“I am opening”) and customers have turned the tables on the government:
