Letter from Nicu, imprisoned anarchist of Bologna (Italy)

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Letter from Nicu, one of the anarchists imprisoned in La Dozza prison of Bologna.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

We have never cared about the media lynching and police repression that have been hitting the anarchists and friends of Fuoriluogo for years, not only because we know that in Bologna whoever struggles against the injustices of this world is inflicted the same treatment (harassments, daily controls, phone tapping, searches and arrests) but also because in spite of all these obstacles we have always continued on our own way, with our initiatives and the libertarian spirit animating us.

Molotov attack on Italian consulate in solidarity with the comrades arrested in Bologna (Catalunya)

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Communique from Informa-Azione, translated by War on Society:

18 April 2011

The night of April 18 to 19 we attacked the Italian consulate in Barcelona, located at Carrer Mallorca 270, with a molotov cocktail.

This gesture is intended as a cry of solidarity to the comrades of Bologna and Ferrara affected by repression, an act of proximity and complicity with the arrested, the raided, the suspects.

We will never stop supporting any struggle which aims at a world without borders, police, states and jails.

‘Cause the real terrorist is not the one who fights for freedom and against barbarism, but those who march under the wing of the law, bomb, kill, rape and lock up.

THE TERRORIST IS THE STATE

“Freedom is not to be told, it is a blind condition, it refuses to be put in writing”

FREEDOM FOR STEFI, ANNA, MARTIN, ROBERT, NICU

“Individualist solidarity is, in any place, out of place”
(Fuoriluogo).

Terrorists are those who kill and bomb, not those who struggle against them! (Italy)

Friday, April 29th, 2011

This piece of writing is from Martino, one of the comrades arrested in Bologna on April 6 2011

My name is Martino, I’m one of those arrested last 6th April following the nth repressive wave orchestrated by the State: this operation led to the arrest of 5 comrades, 7 others being forced to stay away from Bologna, a great number of searches (carried out, among other things, in several towns) and even the seizure of the documentation space Fuoriluogo (which from a site distributing texts of radical critique and organizing open initiatives every week turned out to be an impregnable fortress of terrorists). This is an investigation public prosecutors have been working on for a long time and which they decided to conclude following some anonymous attacks against IBM, ENI, Emilbanca and Northern League carried out in Bologna in the space of one week (but no reference to these facts can be found in the reports they gave us when we were arrested, hangman journalists should know).

ENI store attacked in solidarity to the anarchists arrested in Bologna (Italy)

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Translated from informa-azione.info

13 April 2011

Bergamo (Northern Italy). ENI store attacked in solidarity to the anarchists arrested in Bologna.

“During the night of April 13 we have attacked the ENI store in Bergamo by sealing its doors and by daubing its walls with paint and used oil. Solidarity to the arrested in Bologna. Terrorists are those who poison the planet. Terrorist is the State!”

Note: ENI is an Italian multi-national oil and energy company which is a long-known target for the corrupt business and exploitation it embarks upon.

To all delinquents who have expressed solidarity (Italy)

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Communiqué from Stefania and Anna, two of the comrades arrested in Bologna on April 6 2011.

Solidarity has come strong and abundant with letters and telegrams, which have been so numerous to make the guards go into a tailspin, and some were even sent by registered post to make sure they arrived. This really warms up our heart.
The charge for those arrested, for those subjected to restrictions and for all the comrades investigated is ‘organized crime’. (more…)

We are all Fuoriluogo (Italy)

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Text of the poster calling for demos in Italy [Fuori luogo literally means ‘out of place’]

In a world over and over again at war, where mad colonels bombard rebel towns and global sheriffs shoot against everybody; in a nuclearized world with radioactive seas and poisoned lands, where an earthquake is a business for laughing hyenas and where a cancer is yet another customer for pharmaceutical lobbies; in a world obsessed by ‘security’ but in which the destiny of everyone is in the hands of doctor Strangelove and his idiotic ministers, and in which health is in the hands of pharmaceutical multinationals and traders of waste; in a world of luxury hospices for rich elderly and prison call centres for poor youths; in a world of blue years and of lead years, of jobs that are not there, and when they are there it is just shit; (more…)

Dozens of raids as new investigation against anarchists begins (Italy)

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Breaking news from the mainstream media, treat with caution:

The Digos, the Italian political police, in the city of Bologna, have executed an operation investigating frequent visitors to the Bologna activist circle ‘Fuoriluogo’. The provision for the operation was decided by the prosecutor of Bologna within an inquiry carried out by the Bologna Digos.

Whilst this morning, more than 300 police have carried out searches in Bologna, Ferrara, Modena, Rome, Padova, Trento, Reggio Calabria, Ancona, Turin, Lecce, Naples, Trieste, Genoa, Teramo, Forli, Ravenna and Milan. The comrades under investigation are accused of belonging to a ‘subversive association for criminal intent’. 60 searches are reported, resulting, so far, in 12 people under precautionary measures and one arrest according to media.

Break the Silence (about the arrests in Bologne, Italy)

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

(inspired by a few leaflets from ‘Fuoriluogo’)

Saturday 13th October 2007 at around 4am: a girl is sleeping in piazza Verdi in Bologna (northern Italy). Police on patrol decide that the girl’s behaviour is ‘abnormal’ and must be corrected by compulsory sanitary treatment (TSO), which means internment in a psychiatric hospital and forced administration of psychotropic drugs. The cops call the ambulance while keeping the girl under their custody against her will. (more…)
