Avaaz members at the public demonstration against "gag law" on the 29th of July in Rome.

We did it: the Italian "gag law" is dead, and some observers even say it won't be back!

This is an historic victory for people power in Italy - the first time public demonstrations have been able to shift the parliamentary agenda. More than 340.000 Italians mobilized against the "gag law".

Together, we've got Berlusconi and his politics of corruption on the run. Now we have to seize the momentum of this victory and take our efforts to the next level - pushing strong anti-corruption laws, defending freedom of the press and ensuring the right kind of justice reform.

We can do it! If enough of us chip in, we can scale up our campaigns, and turn the tide on our country's ailing politics: -- donate now using the form below:
