A series of strikes is underway here. Some 11,000 doctors walked off the job June 21 to protest government reforms passed June 18 that, among other things, will force doctors to choose between practice in the private and public sectors. Only emergency treatments were guaranteed. Transport strikes, which have plagued the country for months, were planned for ferries to Sicily, trains to Naples and Venice and airports in Milan.
