Florence: Bomb against neo-fascist bookshop, a bomb disposal cop wounded and anarchist places raided (Italy)
Sunday, January 8th, 2017
We learn from the national media of the explosion of a bomb in front of a neo-fascist bookshop in Florence and of an unspecified number of raids in homes and places of anarchist comrades. A police bomb disposal expert was wounded during the operation to defuse the device connected to a timer: the explosion led to injury of a hand and an eye [previously the media reported the amputation of the hand and loss of the eye].
In the hours following searches were conducted in the area of anarchist circles in Florence and Tuscany; at the moment there is no more information about the places affected, while reports say they have not found anything. The bomb had been discovered by a patrol of the Digos in the town involved in monitoring the bookshop near to Casapound [neo-fascist hangout], identified as a sensitive objective and already attacked in the past. The prosecutor is investigating for attempted murder.
Further updates coming soon.

LATEST DIRECT ACTIONS IN ITALY
2nd of September, MODENA – Anonymous claim: “2nd of September, Saliceta street – Some cables of a Wind phone mast are set on fire. Let’s sabotage the infrastructures complicit with the cop control. Freedom for Pippo, Tommy and Andrea accused of having set the house of a fascist on fire. Solidarity with the comrades hit by the requests of special surveillance in Trentino and Sardegna. Fire to the gears of ordinary repression”.
31st of August, PISA – A 28 years old guy threw a molotov to the entrance of a building that was hosting – in the past – a Lega Nord (xenophobic party) headquarters. Arrested by the Carabinieri [paramilitary police] thanks to the cooperation of citizens who witnessed the scene. He declared to be anarchist and to have attacked the Lega Nord because it’s a fascist party. He’s now held in the jail of Pisa.
19th of August CREMONA – A phone mast is set on fire and a spraypainted message is left on the place: “Revenge for Emilio”. Emilio is a comrade from Cremona who fell into a coma after a fight with the Nazis of Casa Pound and is now slowly recovering. The people from the communist social centre CSA Dordoni in which Emilio is involved, immediately took distance from the action declaring that “Antifascism is a serious issue that we need to address urgently. To set a phone mast on fire doesn’t go in this direction”. In the same night also the car of Gianluca Galli, the boss of Casapound Cremona, goes on fire and is completely destroyed.
29th of July PARMA – During the night a sabotage hits the TAV (high speed line) railway between Bologna and Milano. Around 4 am the cables in the manholes between Fidenza and Fontanellato were set on fire, causing troubles to the circulation. No claim of the action was released.
July GENOVA – A telecommunications mast was set on fire in a village close to Genova, an anonymous claim is released on the 13th of July:
“AGAINST TECHNOLOGICAL DICTATORSHIP
Without any doubt we could describe present society as a technocratic system in which, at a global level, reckless science and the products it launches in the market dominate and regulate life. Since their very existence, the corporations keep their dominion over the Planet thanks to the States and international institutions (ONU, UE, FMI, BCE).
The hyper-technological society is the perfect society to fulfill the two main necessities of the Power: profit and social control. Thanks to science and technology, promoted as modern deities, profit doesn’t know any more limit: from military devices to the incredible quantity of useless products put on the market. Also social and life control cannot but spread even more every day, from the simple cameras to the use of nanotechnologies. People, already deprived of any autonomy and own will, are introduced to the fabulous world of science through a partial and fictitious access to technology.
With the fantasy of improving the quality of life, the only real effects are a reckless production, the wasting of the minds and of our own abilities, the erasing of real emotions, therefore of life itself.
All of this happens while in front of our eyes nature gets devastated to build huge projects that will allow to move these goods even faster and to trace them even more easily. All of this happens while television, in the general indifference, broadcasts images of populations wiped out and starved to exploit the available resources to increase the production of these goods.
For once we simply decided to elude control and threaten the profit of the technocratic society.
We set fire to the power source cables of a telecommunications mast property of Italsite Spa, a company specialized in this sector in Italy and Europe.
FOR THE IMMEDIATE LIBERATION OF MARCO CAMENISCH
IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE ANARCHISTS IMPRISONED IN ITALY, CHILE, GREECE, SPAIN AND MEXICO”
11th of July MODENA – Anonymous claim: “11th of July – Cabins and cables of a phone mast are set on fire against repression and telematic control. From Baltimora to Frankfurt, from Milano to Cremona, the State is the one who devastes and plunders. Revenge for Emilio! Ciao Soledad”. The phone mast was so damaged by the fire that it had to be cut down and removed.
10th of July PADOVA – Fifteen trucks loaded with GMO animal feed, property of the company Mangimi Veronesi, are set on fire and are completely destroyed. Incendiary bottles are found under the trucks, and a spraypainted writing that says: “No GMO, no farming”. The Coordinamento Zero OGM which has run since 2014 a campaign against this company for its use of GMO animal feed immediately dissociated itself from the action.
6th of July UDINE – The local headquarters of the fascist group Casa Pound are stained and spraypainted with messages like “You’ll burn”, “Dirty fascists”, etc.
24th of June FIRENZE – Anonymous claim: “Florence, in the night between 24th and 25th of June we set on fire a Fiat 500 of the carsharing service of ENI, Frecciarossa and Vodafone in via del Bisarno. Solidarity to the imprisoned anarchists”.

Guido and Arturo, two comrades from Cuneo (Italy), were jailed for a few weeks last February following an action to block a Castor train loaded with nuclear waste in Val Susa (northern Italy). The action was carried out during the night by about forty people, mostly anarchists and some village people. Within a short time the gathering was surrounded by a large number of policemen, about 200. Despite the numerical inferiority the demonstrators felt it was necessary to act, driven by the ethical tension that they were in the right, against nuclear power and the system of death that justifies its existence. They tried to block the tracks with tyres and the police immediately charged the group on different sides. Some comrades were injured and three were detained. In the morning, Guido and Arturo, who have always been committed to the struggle against harmful substances and against this miserable existent, were remanded in custody. (more…)
