Received and translated to English by Act for freedom now!
Update: RadioAzione, Italy – “To be or not to be… that’s not our question”
On the morning of January 23, 2015 agents of the Croatian secret services – SOA – turned up here because they wanted to talk to me about my site, RadioAzione Croatia, and to my husband, anarchist comrade, Italian citizen, who runs and also hosts other anarchist sites (including RadioAzione), threatening him with expulsion.
Their discourse began with threats concerning my personal relationships, both current and future, assuming that these are and will only be realized with anarchists, not Croatian of course, warning me that Croatia has no intention of becoming a haunt for people who are a problem for their countries of origin. Here the reference to my relationship with the comrade of RadioAzione Italy is clear.
Of course the threats are not limited to my relationships with comrades, they also warn me that any foreign national who comes to visit me in Croatia in the future, anarchist or not, will be treated as suspicious. And then they get lost in the usual threats concerning my parents, my position as unemployed, possible raids, arrests etc.
Their intention was to intimidate me by threatening to isolate me here in Croatia, far from my ”Italian and Greek friends” (an expression that they used several times). Because they are well aware of the fact that I could not expect any cooperation, activities or whatever with the local movement.
They also tell me that they know other anarchists in Croatia, but that they, unlike me, do not constitute a problem, that I am a unique and singular case for these territories (hinting that other anarchists in Croatia do not care much for my ideas). And that they are also aware of the fact that I was the one to introduce insurrectionalist theories into these territories and beyond years ago, with translations of some texts of Alfredo M. Bonanno. A point that they particularly stressed. (more…)

Chiara, Claudio, Mattia and Niccolò were convicted in the first degree for the specific crimes, that they claim as an action of resistance to the TAV high speed train, 3 years and 6 months, against the request of nine years for the aggravating circumstance of terrorism. Now they are on house arrest.
Also for Francesco, Graziano and Lucio the crime of terrorism doesn’t exist. The charges remain of possession and manufacture of molotovs and resisting a public officer, accusations that keep them in precautionary detention. They have been transferred in the High Security prison Ferrara.

“Not only against prison, but also against the detention of every living being” – Contribution of Gianluca Iacovacci from the prison of Alessandria (Italy)

“Not only against prison, but also against the detention of every living being”
Contribution to the Croce Nera Anarchica bulletin # 1 – September 2014
I would like to begin with a quick analysis of repression, its functions and its application, and then talk in an effective way about my vision of things. I very often prefer to go to the root of the discussion or in any other situation.
In this case I want with premeditation to completely skip the political-social debate – even if radical – about jail, and focus directly on the rationality of the detention of living beings – of any form they may be -, and focus on the eradication of the logic of the ‘right’ and of its formality.
For what concerns my position about the context and the case for which I am imprisoned, it all has already been said in my second contribution published in the January issue of “La Miccia”, and I guess also on the counter-info websites.
I will restrain myself from expanding this written dialogue so to avoid repetitions. You can already read – if you want – a partial vision and pragmatism of struggle and resistance in my first published writing “War to the Machines”, so I would like to temporarily restrict the dialogue, in a specific way, to the detention originated by speciesism, civilization and normalization of the struggles, keeping in great consideration the uniqueness of the contexts in the conflict against the existent.
Lately the repressive waves – generally against the anarchists – often happen in the sleeping periods of the strategies of the so-called anti-terrorism apparatuses of the political police. These operative tactics are used, in addition to their repressive aim, to build up media events – that include false accusations – and to spread an impression of a permanent terrorist danger, echoing the evergreen “anni di piombo” ["Years of Lead": Italian period of political turmoil and armed struggle from the 1970s to early 1980s – trans.], infiltrators, extreme fringes and jumps in quality.

Chiara, Claudio, Niccolò and Mattia under house arrest; Lucio transferred to Ferrara’s high-security wing (Italy)
Saturday, December 27th, 2014
A week after being sentenced, Chiara, Claudio, Niccolò and Mattia were placed under house arrest, with all restrictions. Thus, they are now released from prison, but banned from meeting with anyone who is not habitually residing in the same house.
On December 22nd, Lucio – like Francesco and Graziano – was transferred to the AS2 section of Ferrara prison. For those who want to write to them, here’s their new address:

Roma: Blocco del treno ad alta velocità Italo in solidarietà con Chiara, Claudio, Mattia e Niccolò (Italia)
Monday, December 15th, 2014
Oggi a Roma un numeroso gruppo di solidali No Tav ha voluto inviare un concreto messaggio di solidarietà nei confronti di Chiara, Claudio, Mattia e Niccolò, che nella giornata di mercoledì 17 si vedranno giudicati in primo grado al Tribunale di Torino con l’accusa di terrorismo, per la ben nota vicenda del danneggiamento del compressore del cantiere di Chiomonte. Il blocco del treno alta velocità nella stazione Ostiense è servito per imprimere sopra di esso il nostro grido di libertà, in modo che dopo aver attraversato il paese possa raggiungere proprio Torino. Cogliamo l’occasione per rilanciare la mobilitazione anche nella nostra città, in vista del mese di gennaio, in cui arriverà la sentenza nel maxi-processo che vede imputate 53 persone di tutta Italia per le grandi giornate di lotta del 27 giugno e 3 luglio 2011. Sempre negli stessi giorni ci sarà anche la sentenza per i fatti del 15 ottobre 2011 a Roma. Il 17 gennaio un corteo popolare tornerà nelle strade di Roma per rivendicare la libertà di tutti e tutte, e per ribadire che il Tav in Val di Susa non si farà mai. Per parlare di questa ed altre iniziative invitiamo a partecipare ad un’assemblea pubblica venerdì 19 dicembre alle 17 all’università La Sapienza. NO TAV LIBERI/E!!! NO TAV FINO ALLA VITTORIA!!!
Rome: High Speed Train Blocked & Sprayed In Solidarity With Chiara, Claudio and Niccolo, anti-TAV prisoners
Today in Rome a large group of No TAV solidarians wanted to send a concrete message of solidarity with Chiara, Claudio, Mattia and Niccolo, who on Wednesday 17 December will be judged in the first instance at the Court of Turin on charges of Terrorism, for the well-known story of the compressor damage at the [TAV] construction yard of Chiomonte. The blockade of the high-speed train in the station of Ostiense served to impress upon all our cry of freedom, so that it crosses the country to reach Turin. We take this opportunity to revive the mobilization in our city, in view of the month of January, which will come the judgment in the maxi-process in which 53 people are charged from across Italy in the great days of struggle of June 27 and July 3, 2011. On the same days there will also be judgment for the events of October 15, 2011 in Rome. On January 17, a popular parade will return to the streets of Rome to demand the freedom of all and for all, and to reiterate that the TAV in Val di Susa never will pass. To talk about this and other initiatives we invite you to attend a public meeting Friday, December 19 to 17 at the University of La Sapienza. NO TAV – FREEDOM FOR ALL!!! NO TAV – UNTIL VICTORY !!!

Contribution of Adriano from the prison of Ferrara: “A sad circus. Vote for Gianluca and Adriano!”
Contribution to the Croce Nera Anarchica bulletin # 1 – September 2014
With the usual unpromptness caused by the imprisonment, I came to know about the spreading of a public plea aiming at collecting signatures in support of Gianluca and myself. In the beginning I understood it was a proposal for a referendum. A referendum about the “right to resistance” or even the “legitimate sabotage” and I said to myself: if they will reach the quorum, what will ever happen? What will we do? Will we all be “immediately free”? Will we all attack together the existing order?
I had the blurry feeling of being kidnapped by the state and right in the middle of a trial, instead I find myself co-candidate and in full electoral campaign. I had a bit of a headache.
Dear comrades, it’s hot and this sickening vacation doesn’t allow any relief valve, let me then waste a bit of ink to write some obvious things concerning this sad circus and I recommend, vote for us!
With this letter I don’t want to express resentment towards those who promoted this initiative, I wouldn’t dream of it! I can say I have appreciated it from a human point of view but, given my disagreement, on every perspective of it, I think it’s important to reply. (more…)

Call for a Black December!
On November 28th, comrades in Santiago decided to attack a public transport line with the purpose of calling for a Black December in memory of Sebastián Oversluij, anarchist killed in December 2013 during a failed bank expropriation. This action was also intended to express solidarity with imprisoned compañera Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, as well as other fighters prosecuted, incarcerated or fallen in combat. Once the public transport bus was engulfed in flames, they threw pyrotechnics to make their rage and rebellion flash more forcefully. “(…) We call for a Black December in memory of comrade Sebastian Oversluij. Solidarity with Tamara Sol Vergara. Hans Niemeyer, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar to the streets! Strength to comrade Nikos Romanos. An affectionate embrace to the comrades who attacked the PDI. Mauricio Morales and Sebastian Oversluij present!”
On November 26th, comrades carried out a direct action outside the Juan Gómez Millas campus in Santiago, erecting street barricades and blocking the traffic for almost an hour. A young student, who had nothing to do with the action, was arrested by cops. An anonymous communiqué mentions among others: “(…) May our ideals live in everyday and violent action. A salute to the combatants: Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla, Carlos Quiduleo, Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova, Guillermo Duran, Alejandro Astorga, Sol Vergara and all prisoners in the territory occupied by the State of Chile, as well as to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, to the prisoners of Mexico, Indonesia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, to Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike demonstrating that the anti-authoritarian struggle does not end in prison, but another breach opens from there, other means to keep blowing out the existent. Also all our love and memory to our comrades who have fallen in combat Claudia Lopez, Jhony Cariqueo, Mauricio Morales, Sebastian Oversluij, Jorge Saldivia, the latter two brothers killed in bank robberies. All our loving remembrance will always take the form of fire and war against every authority. Long live anarchy.”
The FAI Torches in the Night/Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for burning a vehicle in the service of the French multinational GDF Suez on November 25th in the Long Ashton area, Bristol (England), where they also torched an audacious 4×4, two luxury sports cars and a vehicle of OCS, one of the top security companies in the UK, in revenge for Rémi Fraisse, the nuclear industry, the prison society and the Green Capital: “(…) Against class society and industrial development, even and especially the green-washed ones – Victory for ZAD/Testet and ZAD/Notre-Dames-des-Landes – Victory to the rotating hunger strike in the Greek prison system (in support of our FAI confederate Nikos Romanos) and all prisoners at war with the prison.”
In the early hours of November 30th, a mini-riot broke out in the neighbourhood of Exarchia, Athens, including Molotov cocktail attacks against anti-riot squadrons, flaming barricades, and smashing of luxury cars, while slogans in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos were being chanted loudly in the streets.
At approximately the same nighttime, in the city of Thessaloniki, a group of individuals reportedly launched Molotov cocktails at the cops guarding the Turkish consulate.
Late on November 29th, a group of anarchists attacked a police station in Volos with stones and paint, shouting slogans in solidarity with Nikos Romanos.
On November 29th, a group of comrades sabotaged a scheduled meeting of the minister of Public Order Vassilis Kikilias with mainstream media thugs in Patras. The anarchist intervention took place outside the offices of a local newspaper, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis. The cops were caught completely off guard, and hurried the minister away from there. One of the shouts was: “Nikos Romanos, we’re with you; as for you, Kikilias: go fuck yourself!”
At daybreak of November 29th, the offices of the Legal Council of the State in Heraklion, on Crete, were attacked in solidarity with anarchists Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike since 10/11 and 17/11 respectively. The front door and first-floor windows were broken, and paint was thrown inside and outside the building.
In a display of solidarity with anarchist hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, a bank ATM was torched in downtown Athens on 23/11 and a branch of the Hellenic Post was explosively attacked on 27/11 in Pefki (the Athens neighbourhood where Theofilos Mavropoulos was seriously wounded and arrested in May 2011, after a shootout with two patrol officers, when Yannis Michailidis managed to get away driving the patrol car of the same cops).
In the night towards November 26th, anarchists vandalized ATMs with glue in the city of Ioannina, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos, Yannis Michailidis and Iraklis Kostaris (the latter conducted a hunger strike from 29/10 until 28/11, when his request was denied).
In the early hours of November 26th, bank ATMs were doused in gasoline and set on fire in Nea Smyrni, Athens, as a token of incendiary solidarity with anarchist comrades Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis.
In another communiqué, arsonists claimed responsibility for a string of attacks (ATMs and vehicles torched) in nine different districts of Athens, in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos.
On November 26th, at midday, the scumbag lawyer Alexis Kougias, who defended the cops that murdered Alexis Grigoropoulos, was assaulted when spotted in the Athens neighbourhood of Exarchia. This (random) attack was dedicated to Nikos Romanos – friend of slain Grigoropoulos, who witnessed the killing in December 2008 – and Yannis Michailidis.
On November 23rd, comrades in Thessaloniki went on the offensive, and placed a homemade explosive device consisting of gas canisters at the house of police unionist Dimitris Padiotis (president of the Thessaloniki Police Officers Union), located in the area of Kastra. They claimed this action in support of captive anarchist Nikos Romanos, on hunger strike as of 10/11, making also mention of the ongoing solidarity hunger strike of anarchist prisoner Yannis Michailidis (since 17/11), and imprisoned 17N member Iraklis Kostaris.
On November 19th, the local offices of the main ruling party Nea Dimokratia in the Athens district of Ambelokipi (situated between the Greek police headquarters and the Ambelokipi police station) were attacked in a display of “loud” solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.
On November 17th, a security company vehicle was burned in the area of Metamorfosi, Athens, in solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.
On November 13th, the Group of Proletarian Attack targeted the Galatsi tax office in Athens, intending to burn down the archives section inside the building with a high-power incendiary device. Due to an unforeseen obstacle, the incendiary mechanism was finally detonated in the outdoor space. Among other things, the group expressed solidarity with Iraklis Kostaris and Nikos Romanos in their fight for prison furloughs, “for breaths of life away from the galleys of bourgeois democracy”.

INTERVISTA CCF/ALFREDO COSPITO
From the Greek prisons to AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara: a few words of “freedom”.
Interview by CCF to myself.
Before answering your questions, I’ d like to stress that what i’ m about to say is my own truth. One of the many points of view, sensitivities and individual nuances within that crucible of thought and action that goes under the name of Fai-Fri.
Informal federation that, rejecting any hegemonic temptation, represents a tool, a method of one of the components of anarchism of praxis. Anarchism of praxis that only when it is informal, without being forced into organizational structures (specific, formal, of synthesis) when it doesn’t seek the unbearable consent (therefore rejects politics) it can be recognized in a wider chaotic universe called “black international”.
To understand this better, Fai-Fri is a methodology of action that only some of the sisters and brothers of the black international practice, it’ s not an organization nor a simple collective signature, but a tool that aims towards efficiency, whose objective is to reinforce cells and each comrade of praxis through a pact of mutual support based on three key points: revolutionary solidarity, revolutionary campaigns, communication between groups or individuals:
Each group of action in the Anarchist Informal Organization is engaged in showing revolutionary solidarity to comrades who are arrested or are on hiding. This solidarity will show itself mainly through armed action and the attack against men and structures responsible for the imprisonment of comrades. Solidarity will always be practiced as an indispensable feature of anarchist way of life and action. Of course we do not refer to legal and technical support: bourgeois society offers a sufficient number of lawyers, social workers and priests, which means that revolutionists can be engaged in another kind of activities.

Latest direct actions in Italy:
12 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “On Wednesday night, November 12th, we attacked 5 ATMs with hammer and vandalized several luxury cars (punctured tires and broken windows), as a minimum gesture of individual revolt against a capitalist system that exploits and devastates.
We dedicate this action to the compagni and the compagna accused of attacking the TAV construction yard in May 2013 as well as to all anarchist prisoners. We cannot stand idly by while our comrades are buried under years of imprisonment, or limit ourselves to symbolic acts that do not cause any nuisance.
The only solidarity is attack!”
15 November, Venezia: according to the media, the justice palace was vandalized with paint and spraypaint against the TAV: “Free the no tav prisoners”.
17 November, Napoli: according to the media, an explosive device containing 1 kilo of black powder was found unexploded in front of a Deutsche Bank in the neighborhood of Vomero. Until now no-one claimed the action.
18 November, Cremona: according to the media, a PD (=Democratic Party) office was vandalized in Cremona, with a smashed window, damage to the videosurveillance cameras and spray-paints like: “Stop evictions”, “PD=Police”, “Corvetto resists” and “Free the no tav prisoners”.
18 November, Milano: according to the media, during the night an ALER office in via Inganni was set on fire. This happened a few hours after the eviction of two anarchist squats and other houses and the resistance to it. A window was smashed and a molotov cocktail thrown inside, with heavy damages to furniture, computers, papers and other material (picture: http://www.informa-azione.info/files/0milanoaler.jpg) .
ALER is the company responsible for the recent plan of evicting hundreds of occupied houses, for the business of the thousands of houses left vacant, for property speculations on housing projects in Milano.
Unknown date, Viterbo: anonymous claim: “An animal liberation activist once wrote that in the last twenty years the number of vegetarians and vegans has increased dramatically, but the number of activists has remained the same. This made us think and we decided to bring animal liberation back to its true meaning: to free animals. One November night we visited a small farm in Orte (Province of Viterbo); we opened the doors of the cages that imprisoned ten rabbits, giving them freedom. We then opened the henhouse and carried away with us about 10 turkeys and other birds. We dedicate this action to those who are truly active, in the way and form they prefer, and not on social networks!”
20 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “20th of november is the day of remembrance for the people killed for being trans. This year the registered deaths in the world are 226. We decided to attack a catholic church because it is a symbol of the anti-trans oppression. The violence experienced by trans people is the consequence of their moral and anti-gender rules. In the night of 20/11 we attacked the church of San Paolo in via vismara 2. We glued the locks of several doors, we threw pink paint on the facade and spraypainted: “20/11 NIGHT OF TRANS REVENGE” on the front door. LET’S ATTACK THE CHURCHES! REVENGE AND NOT ONLY REMEMBRANCE!”
22 November, Trento: according to the media, the local office of PD party was painted and some writings were left like: “Freedom for the arrested in Valsusa”, “No PD – Corvetto resists”, “NO TAV – no evictions”. The traffic was blocked and a banner against high speed was hanged. Some days before, on the 19th, an high speed train was blocked in the train station in solidarity with the No Tav resistance; the sides were spraypainted with slogans dedicated to Rémi Fraisse and for the freedom of arrested comrades.

“ON AUGUST 23 WE OPENED THE CAGES AT THE MINK FARM ON VIA TOSATTI IN SCORZE’ (VE) – ITALY
THERE WERE THREE STRUCTURES AT THE FARM FOR THE KEEPING OF ANIMALS, ONE WAS EMPTY, SO WE WERE BUSY IN THE OTHER TWO WHERE HUNDREDS OF MINK WERE LOCKED IN CAGES. WE REMOVED ALL IDENTIFICATION TAGS, MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY OR CLASSIFY ANY ANIMAL WHO WAS RECAPTURED.
WE DAMAGED SEVERAL CAGES AND DESTROYED DOZENS OF METERS OF FENCE AT THE BACK OF THE FARM TO ALLOW THE MINK TO ESCAPE INTO THE FIELDS BETWEEN THICK CROPS AND STREAMS.
SOON FARMS WILL START KILLING THOUSANDS OF MINK FOR THE PRODUCTION OF FUR.
FOR THESE ANIMALS WHO WILL BE SKINNED THERE IS NO OTHER POSSIBILITY THAN TO OPEN THE CAGES. ANIMAL LIBERATION IS NOT EMPTY WORDS BUT A REALITY WHERE THERE IS OPPRESSION.

NB: English version here on Contra-Info.
Ogni Società che voi costruirete avrà i suoi margini e sui margini di ogni Società si aggireranno i vagabondi eroici e scapigliati, dai pensieri vergini e selvaggi che solo sanno vivere preparando sempre nuove e formidabili esplosioni ribelli!
Scriviamo questo testo per tutti gli anarchici e i ribelli, dentro e fuori le mura del carcere in tutto il mondo, in risposta alla chiamata internazionale ad una settimana di azioni per i prigionieri anarchici (23-30 agosto). Una coordinazione di azioni di questo tipo è necessaria, soprattutto a livello internazionale, dato che sollecita indivudui e collettivi ad agire nel modo che sentono, e ad esprimere e diffondere la guerra di liberazione anarchica. Comunque sia, non dovremmo dipendere solo da queste chiamate per far sentire le nostre voci e mostrare le nostre azioni. Perciò, dando per scontato che siamo una guerra infuriata, e avendo scelto questa posizione, ci confrontiamo con un nemico che possiede ogni mezzo per batterci in qualsiasi momento dell’attacco. Eserciti, sbirri, tecnologie di controllo, sorveglianza avanzata, stoccaggio del dna e impronte digitali, i media, e molte altre istituzioni e menti costituiscono il dominio verso il quale noi siamo ostili. In questa guerra, l’unica certezza è che avremo prigionieri, o anche vittime, e ciò è il punto sul quale la verifica della stessa battaglia mente. (more…)

Rome – 18th of July 2014
The anarchist comrades Gianluca Iacovacci and Adriano Antonacci were
sentenced today by the judge Simonetta D’Alessandro to 6 years (Gianluca)
and 3 years and 8 months (Adriano) of jail for several sabotages and incendiary attacks against ENIL, ENEL [Energy companies], a fur shop, banks and the working site of a refuse-dump in the area surrounding Rome, between 2010 and 2013.
The judge confirmed the charge of 270bis (subversive association) with the aim of international terrorism. Gianluca claimed some time ago the responsibility for some of the actions they were accused of, the ones signed by FAI.
During the trial he refused to defend himself and resigned the lawyer, both of them refused to participate in the trial by video-conference.
Incendiary solidarity with our two comrades!!!

‘Nihilist Sect of Free Death’ takes responsibility for several unknown incendiary attacks in Rome and issues opening statement (Italy)
Saturday, July 19th, 2014
We receive and transmit with the following editorial note:
With regard to “warning signals” or “phone calls” prior to explosive attacks, this is part of the tradition of many countries’ urban guerrilla groups, and it aims to prevent unnecessary loss of life and injuries. Many of these radical groups don’t need to issue warnings for their attacks, as they are carried out with a different set of operating parameters – often targeting property in such a way that unintended harm does not result to humans or non-human animals. There is also security, logistical, technical and repressive factors, but generally speaking, the nihilist, anarchist and anti-civilisation tendencies are separated from authoritarianism, conservatism and fascism by this regard, by the priority placed on rejecting any attack which has as a result indiscriminate loss of life and mass injuries for the base population. We presume these parameters are the “encrypted codes” which the Nihilist Sect of Free Death refers to in the communique below.
THE NIHILIST SECT OF FREE DEATH: OPENING UP AND CLAIMING OF INCENDIARY ATTACKS
“I teach you the Overman! He is that sea; in him your great contempt can go under.”
The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is based on the precise points of a project and experiment:
1° – The attack on society and its values, such as morality, ethics, equality, democracy, legality, law, etc.
2° – The rejection of all legal and juridical issues.
3° – The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is unique, and denies any pact of federation or association with other groups, even if they had “affinity” with the project.
4° – The Nihilist Sect of Free Death doesn’t make recourse to warning signals or “phone calls”, but any Attack carried out successfully or only attempted, will go under specific encrypted codes in order to avoid “confusion” as for all the judicial ethical body of society and everybody else who want to use it for their own “purposes”.
5° - Against so-called “heterogeneous” or generalized solidarity, which is bound to affect the specificity of the project.
6° – The Nihilist Sect of Free Death’s “own” claim in specific cases, such as the case where an individual who’s not part of the pact of association is indirectly involved in it under the form of imprisonment..
The die is cast…
PS: To begin the experiment, various incendiary attacks were successfully carried out against mobile objects in the mess of the metropolis called “Rome”.
Nihilist Sect of the Free Death
Thursday, July 10th, 2014
On the 4th of July in the court of Roma (Italy) the second hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano was held. Even though it was supposed to be with closed doors, a group of comrades managed to enter the courtroom in a moment of distraction of the security guards, in the initial bureaucratic phase of the hearing. They shouted strongly their rage against a proceeding which occurs in the complete absence of the accused. After some minutes they were jostled outside of the courtroom by the Carabineros [military police], while the judge pretended not to even notice what was going on.
We remember that the judge D’Alessandro, accepting the request from the prosecutor, decided that the trial was to be held on videoconference; both Gianluca and Adriano decided not to attend the show-trial, refusing to appear through a screen.
The prosecutor Minisci, already known by the comrades since he’s the same prosecutor in the case for the riots of 15th of October 2011 in Rome, to
reinforce the charges of 270 and 270bis (association for the purposes of terrorism) quoted also some actions that happened outside of Italy, with the aim of inventing some fictional international subversive association. He closed his speech with his request of sentence against the comrades:
- 8 years for Adriano
- 9 years for Gianluca
Next hearing will be on the 18th of July for the speech of Adriano’s defence lawyer and probably for the sentence.
Solidarity with the accused comrades!
“Breaking the isolation” – Contribution by Alfredo Cospito for the first issue of Croce Nera Anarchica magazine (Italy)
Sunday, July 6th, 2014
The following text under the title “Breaking the isolation” is a contribution by anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito for the first issue (#0) of the Anarchist Black Cross magazine [Italy].
It is with difficulty that our words come out uncensored from the four walls of this prison. At times, however, we manage to break the isolation. We are seizing the opportunity to have a say on the new Black Cross, a project born here inside, during out-of-cell time.
Very often over recent years, there was a surrender to whining, to victimization born of anticipation· anticipation of the next “safeguarding line”, of the slogan shouted, all insufficient substitutes of the destructive action. Ever since the first days of our imprisonment, on the contrary, we have been full of optimism, a feeling which is not only ours, but is also shared with some of our fellow inmates. Optimism concrete, made by different perspectives which together in their diversity, they will succeed in defeating that “realism”, that endless, unbearable, sterile leaning towards the “social”, which has repressed so many arms. The obsessive fear of making a bigger step, so as not to scare away the “crowd”. (more…)

Updates on the show trial against Gianluca and Adriano
On the 26th of May the first hearing in videoconference of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano was held. Some time ago Gianluca had decided to reject the defence revoking his lawyer. Furthermore, both Gianluca and Adriano decided, as a gesture of non-cooperation with the show trial on videoconference, not to attend it, not even through the monitors. (more…)

The decisiveness of our struggle and our solidarity are our only “lethal weapons”.
Dear comrades I am imprisoned, like many others, targeted by the oppression of the state, which seeks to annihilate us. Not for what one does, but for what we “risk” to be, to say, to think.
I am riding, along with Adriano and many others, on the judicial roller coaster of the mediated anti-terrorist clique of democracy. First of all, I want to thank all the comrades, who expressed their solidarity, directly or indirectly, even from beyond the borders, as I am convinced that they support us with their very presence within the struggle.
We share the same rage for this grey and miserable existent, which crushes us and for which we feel the same wounds but also the same joy for the wonderful reality of our dreams and our desires. My state is the one of a hostile individual, a captive and a prisoner. (more…)

More than 30 years ago many militants from armed groups took a train and left from Italy. In the latest ’80s a good number of them arrived in France, being the first of the waves of those who had the urgency to put as many kilometers as possible between them and Italy, where repression was striking hard.
After that first sigh of relief many others followed with every rejected extradition request and with every granted provisional freedom decree.
Actually, as time passed by, we started to believe that Francois Mitterrand would keep his word. The group of Italians, hardly a community, was growing larger, inventing new forms of survival, betting their future on an informal declaration. All around solidarity was sprouting in the host nation, where the vicissitudes of Italy were followed closely, included the authoritarian drift that the Italian society was taking. (more…)
