Bonino staged a hunger strike and sit-in at state-run RAI television to protest a lack of media coverage ahead of this weekend's European Parliament elections. Emma Bonino, a former EU Commissioner, had occupied a RAI studio since Tuesday. The Radicals are protesting the failure of RAI and private television in Italy to abide by rulings from a government watchdog that they must provide more equal coverage for smaller political parties.
