More than 4,000 protesters took part in ‘March for the Dignity of Venice’ Sunday afternoon, June 10, in a demonstration against large cruise ships entering the city’s port.

Protesters from No Grandi Navi–‘No Large Ships’ joined with Laguna Bene Comune group members as they marched from Piazzale Roma to the town hall behind a banner “This is not Veniceland”.

Additional signs read “NO”. Another one said: “Another city is possible.”

Up to 30M tourists arrive in Venice annually. In April authorities installed turnstiles in order to regulate the tourists' flow.

However, locals said the turnstiles had been installed to separate them from tourists and part of the port city.
