Repression in Turin (Italy)

Turin – 4 occupations searched, 3 people arrested and others to house arrest.

Waiting for news, we communicate that, around 6am of the mourning, the Digos (political police) has searched many occupations (Asilo, Barocchio, Mezcal, Askatasuna) and houses, arresting three people, notifing some house arrests (it seems they’re 4 people) and to others, the requirement to sign in at the local police station. The repressive operation it’s a revenge for the riots occurred on the first eviction of L’Ostile, the restricted measures are emaned by PM Rinaudo. …

_Statement from Asilo Squat:_

At six of the mourning digos and forces of police came in front of Asilo Squat: “It’s for a notification” they said to the occupant, that came after police intent to brake down the front door. In fact is not a simple notification, it’s a search with arrest of one of the occupant, and we actually don’t know why they arrest him, with what charges and
without knowing if and when he will be released.

Police and Digos have broken down many doors with hammers and metal bars, insulted and jostled the occupants, guilty of reluctance to open the door to the police.

Same searches are happening in Barocchio and Mezcal Squat, other two occupied places in Grugliasco and Collegno, and in private houses.

The hypothesis is that all the matter is about riots occurred at half December in Turin, followed the eviction of the occupated place L’Ostile.

While we write, the police is going out from Asilo, and in the meantime they’re searching in Barocchio and Mezcal Squat.
