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 !!!

On the night of February 22nd, we poured a mixture of sand and water into the fuel tanks of two tractors used in the construction of a new Atlanta streetcar. The streetcar is one of many major development projects the city has initiated in the past few years as a part of a general plan to revitalize downtown. We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.
We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.
Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of “actions” makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!

TERRORISTS ARE THOSE WHO DEVASTATE AND MILITARIZE THE TERRITORY
CALL FOR A DAY OF MOBILIZATION
There are approximately 600 people accused, over a thousand investigated, dozens of people under several restrictions (home confinement, expulsion order), fines for hundreds of thousands of euros, a trial against 53 No Tav protesters, and several comrades who have been under house arrest for months now. These numbers show the repressive fury against the No Tav movement. This August, the Prosecutor of Turin added yet another chapter to their crusade: No Tav rotesters were investigated for “actions aimed at a terroristic attack” for one of the many actions taken against the construction site of Chiomonte – and for this reason subject to restraining measures.

TORINO (21th of March)
During the night, an arson targeted the entrance gate of Geo Studio Servizi, an architects company which collaborates with the construction of a High Speed Train (TAV) in Val Susa.
TORINO (14th of March)
During the night, three banks were attacked with hammers. The windows got broken and the ATM’s damaged. Tags were painted on the walls saying “Basta sfratti” (stop expulsions) and “Pagherete tutto” (You will pay for everything). According to the police, this attack could be a vengeance for the arrest of three comrades during an anti-expulsion action.
NAPOLI (4th of March)
During the night the Citta della Scienza (City of Science) in Napoli burned to the ground. This institution was well known, even beyond the national borders and consisted of a incubator for companies and a training center to promote the “scientific citizenship”. In a few hours this monument of technological research was destroyed. According to the newspapers it was an arson.
TORINO (2th of March)
During the night, fire was put to an electrical cabin which provides electricity for the Office for Immigration in the corso Verona. Some say this attack could be linked to the recent revolts in the detention center for immigrants in Torino.

Download and distribute – December 2012 version of the international anti-prison anarchist freesheet to copy on the fly.
Frontpage article from Italy considers the laming of Ansaldo Nucleare CEO Roberto Adinolfi, the zine also includes letters from imprisoned anarchist comrades, news and a direct action/sabotage round-up. Gabriel Pombo da Silva penned a letter in solidarity with Marco Camenisch this month, Marco is a persecuted eco-anarchist standing firm against the inquisition of nun Manuela Comodi in Italy and the prison authorities of Switzerland. Lastly, but not least, the call for an International Direct Action Week in solidarity with the always unyielding Mario Antonio López ‘Tripa’ from the 15th to the 22nd of December by the Anticivilization Fraction of the Earth Liberation Front in Mexico.
Not forgetting the yearly call for international anti-prison demonstrations and actions on New Years Eve – the time when people are encouraged by the system to spend even more money in consumerist temples and forget their problems through illusions.
Merry Crisis & Happy New Fear – For a Black Xmas!

Alessio del Sordo, anarchist comrade, has always been a committed activist. In prison after the crackdown against NoTAV resistance of Jan26. The Italian political police, the DIGOS, has always been very aware, so it is of the few people still in jail even though the rest have been released. As so often we find a police set whose sole purpose is the domestication and control over the people in their desire to create slaves.
Faced with a new punishment moving to other prison we publish a letter of August 23 so you can see how far the power of a person to preserve his dignity. The puerile attempt by the state to break their will and eliminate its membership is having the opposite effect expected, creating solidarity circles beyond the struggle for liberation. (more…)

325 was wrongly attributed as the source of the following story which appeared on anarchistnews. Solidarity with Massimo and Daniella. Open source warfare against the existent. Down with the Italian regime of bankers and military-fascist corporations. See also : 1 & 2
The most totalitarian society is that which knows how to paint chains with the color of liberty, which is the commodity par excellence today. If the most effective repression is that which nullifies the very desire to rebel, social consensus is preventive repression, the policing of ideas and decisions.
This morning, the 27th of August, in an operation by the special forces of the Carabinieri, in which dozens of police participated and more than ten houses were searched, at two anarchist centers (in Trent and Rovereto) they detained comrades Massimo Passamani and Daniella Battisti, the first is in jail at Tolmezzo and the second on house arrest.

We receive and transmit this letter from Alessio Del Sordo, anarchist comrade and NO TAV prisoner detained in the prison of Turin.
On 6th December 2008, an infamous cop murdered Alexis Grigoropoulos in the Exarchia neighbourhood in Athens. Following that infamy, attacks on the structures of power and their men took place all over Greece. Street clashes, cash machines destroyed, police stations assaulted. Exactly a year after Alexis’ murder, on 6th December 2009, in the vicinity of the spot where he was killed, a spontaneous march was repeatedly charged by antiriot cops on motorbikes, the Delta Corps, financed by the European Union and trained by Italian instructors.

“The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
“The way we treat animals is measure of us as human beings. Without animals there will be no humanity. In a world devoid of animal and plant life, human life will cost less than nothing.” – Somebody we wholeheartedly support
Thus on the 9th of May (Victory Day in ex-USSR) we approached local solid waste landfill. Our target was company tasked with capture and disposal of stray animals, cages with captured stray dogs, crematory and company office. It is worth mentioning that company office sported a sign that read “Veterinary”. Animal care service in the middle of garbage heap – civilizational paradox. It would seem that animal care services should work for the benefit of animals, not municipal authorities. (more…)

By act for freedom now/B.pd
A summary of the events in Val Susa
Various Italian governments have been trying to carry out the TAV (high speed railway) project for more than twenty years. In particular, what politicians and economic lobbies want to achieve is the construction of a high speed railway track linking Turin to Lyon, which will imply the ruin of one of the most beautiful mountain areas of the country, the Susa valley (Piedmont, northern Italy).

On 11th April land expropriation in Val Susa was authorized by the law in order to set the yard for the construction of the Turin-Lyon high speed railway track. On the same day the inhabitants of the valley along with many other people coming from all over the country bravely faced the occupation troops and blocked highways and roads in the area. (more…)

Translated from informa-azione:
Here is another small contribution from me so that I feel closer to the mobilizations of the next days. I ask you to be there, strong and determined as always, also on my behalf. I won’t be able to be present because I’m still hospitalized at the Cto [trauma unit of hospital] in Turin.
The Clarea valley, like the entire Val Susa, belongs to the people of the Susa valley! Not because it’s our private property but because we belong to this land. For centuries the Clarea valley was the place where generations of our forefathers lived. Meadows and woods were clean, vineyards and fields well looked after and mountain chalets inhabited by hundreds of people. (more…)

Translated from finimondo.org:
25th March, Milan: four sentry boxes containing the electric control units of the Lambrate-Rogoreto line were set on fire in the night. One got completely burnt causing huge disruptions on the Milan-Genoa and Milan-Bologna lines.
NO TAV graffiti was left in the surrounding area, including one in memory of Sole and Baleno (‘Sole and Baleno are still alive’). Early estimates assess the damage at one-million euro and dozens of electric cables to be replaced. It is rumoured that it will take weeks before the line is completely restored. When they say ‘the breaking-off of normality…’

Hola! I’m Juan Sorroche Fernandez and I’m writing this communiqué to clarify my position.
The TAV in Val Susa is one of the many projects that the State and society are getting going, like incinerators, the waste disposal emergency in Naples, the Gronda in Genoa (concerning the development of road junctions), construction of new prisons, militarization of the sites where Great Works are being implemented and the militarization of cities. The destruction of the earth and the consequent pollution alone would be sufficient to want to oppose these projects, but besides causing environmental devastation the State and dominion are crushing the individuals in a more and more mechanized system of control, a system based on production and circulation of goods.

LET’S CELEBRATE BY INTENSIFYING THE STRUGGLE
TONIGHT IN CHIOMONTE WE ARE GOING TO STRUGGLE ALSO FOR HIM
STRENGTH TO LUCA. NO TAV, NO OCCUPATION TROOPS

Luca, brother, friend, comrade
The summer suns burnt out, the rivers of clouds ran wild
The ancestors of our Mapu Nuke inhabiting the mountains and the libertarian spirits sleeping on the peaks of the Val Susa are protecting your sleep.
From deep inside our hearts we raise our chants into the sacred Rewe so that you can recover and go back to your people, the women and men of free thought, who struggle for mother earth, alive and libertarian.
To the comrades of NO TAV, to you whom I have recorded in my memory, for your solidarity, dignity and struggle, our solidarity that springs up from deep inside the roots of araucarias and cinnamon protecting our land.
Luca, brother, friend, comrade
We are with you from across the Andes
And swimming in the oceanic seas
Of peoples’ solidarity.

From cette semaine, translated from informa-azione (click for photos):
Sabotage in Savoy
We learn from the press of the regime that early in the morning on Saturday 3rd March acts of sabotage were carried out on the French railway trunk line. Three arsons hit the railway structures in the town of La Ravoire, Saint-Pierre-d’Albigny and Chamousset, near Chambery (Savoy).
These acts of sabotage, two of which on the high speed railway (TGV), caused delays throughout the day of Saturday for a hundred trains on the lines going from Chambery to Mondane (and to Italy), Bourg-Saint-Maurice and Grenoble. Therefore high speed trains to Italy were delayed besides those full of tourists going skiing (it’s school holiday in France).
Two signalling caves were set on fire, which are particularly important on this line because high speed trains use only one track on both directions. According to the press, unknown people tore off the cable trays in concrete running along the railroad tracks and set fire to the caves inside them (signalling cave) using rags soaked in petrol and oil. A graffiti saying NO TAV was left on a railway sentry box close to the arsons.
Police say they are not sure that the sabotage is linked to what’s going on in Val Susa (!) but a great numbers of gendarmes backed by helicopters equipped with thermal cameras were deployed to patrol the railroad tracks in the area…
On Thursday 1st March a solidarity demo with the NO TAV movement was held in Lyon. A group of unmasked people split from the march and forced a technician to open the door of a railway centre. The small group of demonstrators went up the railroad tracks and threw bags of sand at the air cables which feed the trains, thus blocking the latter. All trains that were due to pass by on that track were therefore delayed for one and a half hours (on one of the trains there were even two ministers visiting the area!) During the night paint was threw and graffiti were left on the walls of the Italian consulate of the city.

NO TAV: Gathering and road blocks in Paris, France.
Paris – Saturday 3rd March 2012. About fifty people answered the solidarity call of the NO TAV movement. During the gathering, speeches on the events in Val Susa and the mobilizations all over Italy, then the points of the meetings: what are we going to do besides the solidarity, simple but necessary, with the prisoners; how can we bring the movement to France; what are the links between this movement and us? Followed by policemen in plain clothes at a certain distance, the small group started marching and blocked the traffic in Sebastopol and on Rue de Rivoli, and eventually reached Place du Chalet, where a demo for the Syrian people was being held.
NO TAV – Solidarity from Peru, Italian embassy visited.
On the night of 29th February we visited the Italian embassy in Lima and left there a banner reading: ‘SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLE FOR THE LAND! NO TAV!’ We also dubbed a ridiculous baroque-like painting on the wall with graffiti. As we were being chased by the watch dogs of power, we disappeared in the darkness.
In this country the struggle is against mines, in Italy it is against the high speed railway. May resistance to the destructive projects of the State and capital go beyond all borders! Against all harmfulness and in defence of the Earth. Self-organization and Direct Action everywhere!
NO TAV – NO CONGA – FREEDOM FOR ALL
