Subversive Publications Fair, Cagliari, January 24/25/26, with a discussion on publishing and propaganda
Magazines, papers and other forms of propaganda of the struggle and subversive ideas have always been persecuted by all sorts of regimes. Rendered clandestine, outlawed or banned, seized by police, they have never ceased to exist.
If this seems like an old story to you, one that stinks of the fascist regime, you are wrong!
In 2019 three repressive operations followed one after the other against different situations of struggle around the Italian State, “Scintilla” in Turin, “Renata” in Trento and “Lince” in Sardinia, which although in different ways, all have a similar character: the attack on instruments of publishing and propaganda which these realities use, attributing a central role to them in the investigation. Charges and arrests have been made against editors, but this certainly isn’t anything new.
This attention and consequent repression by the State demonstrates that propaganda still plays a potentially “subversive” role: to build up a narrative and spread news which is different from the mainstream is something that scares power, more engaged than ever in covering the obscenities perpetrated every day in the form of wars, environmental devastation, deportations and so on. To resist these attacks, aimed at taking away some of the last instruments for those who struggle, seems more imperative to us than ever.

Yesterday afternoon [September 18, 2019] came the first notification of the closure of investigations of a file against 45 people, convicted of committing crimes during the season against military bases between 2014 and 2017.
For some of them the accusations made by the Cagliari prosecutor’s office are of a “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism”, but for the most consistent part of the suspects they are mainly crimes related to street demonstrations. (more…)

Tuesday, October 31, our comrade Paolo has been arrested along with two partners, immediately after the post office robbery in a suburb of Cagliari. Once they left the post office, they tried to get away, but the infamy of a bystander has provided very precise information to cops, who therefore were able to organize an encirclement and to intercept them as they were driving away.
They have offered no resistance. Clothes and weapons used in the robbery
have been found in the car.
All our closeness and solidarity to them. We do not know why they have
made this choice, and we do not care about why. We know whoever organize to
deprive State and bosses of what they need, do the right thing, always.
But, we are disgusted by those people who for a “sense of civic duty”
(expression used by the chief police of Cagliari) snitch on those who
organize and act to have what they need, taking from what by nature is
the worst exploiter in the world, the State.
On the side of those who do not bow their heads.
