ECB chief Mario Draghi was assaulted by a protester during a presser on Wednesday (15 April). Jumping up on the table in front of him like a karate kid while throwing confetti, the young woman shouted ‘ECB dictatorship’ with a German accent, before she was wrestled out of the press room by security guards.
