As we’ve seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, the State takes advantage of the situation with (offline and online) monitoring, controlled by police and also through technological devices, for example CCTV, smart phones, etc. Their reasons for this situation are, as we know very well, is in the name of public safety, which is an illusion repeated over and over.
We are faced with a situation that is uncertain, we do not know when the pandemic will end and at the same time the State is intensifying its control technology, on which the use is augmented and enhanced, CCTV for example. At the start of the pandemic we found that surveillance of urban space with CCTV increased and active police-army patrols as well. This situation makes the resistance movement decrease, we are “required” to stay put, to isolate oneself. But is this any logical reason not to follow up with the rebels on the streets? We are sure and our answer is no.
We refuse to be passive in the midst of the control and seizure of living space by the State, government and police. However, due to this pandemic and the situation of contamination, we must seek a gap – without meaning to be arrogant – and to simultaneously maintain the health of oneself and with shared affinity and continue the rebellion (albeit minimal and inadequate). We believe it can be done. Because of this attitude, on November 13 on one of the roads of Pontianak city, we sabotaged the CCTV and take responsible for this action.
And lastly, we are in solidarity with fellow Italian anarchists in Operation Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, who were repressed by the public prosecutor and Brenner Court. And for fellow Belarusian anarchists, and to Monica and Francisco, also to Gabriel Pombo, also to Tanggerang and Makassar fellow anarchists, and for all imprisoned anarchists all over the world. Our attacks are dedicated to you, without terms and conditions.
Fight Control Technology!
Fight the Prison and For the Release of All Prisoners!
Long live anarchy, long live the insurrection!

Sebagaimana yang kita amati di masa pandemi Covid-19 ini, negara memanfaatkan situasi tersebut dengan pemantauan (offline dan online) terkontrol dengan aparat polisi dan juga melalui perangkat teknologi, misalnya cctv, ponsel pintar, dll. Alasan mereka atas situasi ini kita tahu betul ialah atasnama keamanan masyarakat, ilusi yang berulang-ulang.
Kita dihadapi dengan situasi yang tidak pasti kapan akan berakhirnya pandemi ini dan disisi yang sama bahwa negara memasifkan pengontrolan teknologi, dimana penggunaan ini ditambah dan ditingkatkan, cctv misalnya. Di awal pandemi kami mendapati bahwa pengawasan ruang kota dengan cctv bertambah dan patroli polisi-tentara yang aktif. Situasi ini membuat gerakan perlawanan menjadi menurun, dimana kita “mengharuskan” untuk tetap diam di tempat, mengasingkan diri sendiri. Namun apakah ini alasan yang logis untuk tidak melanjuti pemberontak di jalanan? Kami yakin dan jawaban kami adalah tidak.
Kami menolak untuk menjadi pasif ditengah-tengah pengontrolan dan perampasan ruang hidup oleh negara, pemerintah dan polisi. Namun dikarenakan situasi pandemi dan pengontoral ini kita harus mencari celah–tanpa bermaksud sombong– dan secara bersamaan untuk tetap menjaga kesehatan diri sendiri maupun bersama afinitas (meskipun minimal dan tidak memadai) dan melanjutkan pemberontakan. Kami yakin ini bisa dilakukan. Karena sikap inilah, pada tanggal 13 November di salah satu ruas jalan kota Pontianak, kami menyabotase perangkat cctv dan kami bertanggung jawab atas tindakan ini.
Dan sisi lain, kami bersolidaritas dengan rekan-rekan anarkis Italia dalam Operasi Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, yang di represif oleh jaksa penuntut umum dan pengadilan Brenner. Dan juga untuk rekan-rekan anarkis Belarusia, juga kepada Monica dan Francisco, juga kepada Gabriel Pombo, juga kepada rekan-rekan anarkis Tanggerang dan Makassar, dan untuk semua tahanan anarkis seluruh dunia. Serangan kami didekasikan untuk kalian, tanpa syarat.
Lawan Teknologi Kontrol!
Lawan Penjara dan Untuk Pembebasan Semua Tahanan!

ON ”OPERATION BIALYSTOK”
These short notes from a brief reading of the papers at my disposal concerning so-called Operation Bialystok were written to enlighten, albeit superficially given my subjective point of view, some of the salient contents of this new anti-anarchist investigation and the consequent repressive developments. The cyclical movements of the social conflict have always been followed by repressive waves, to the point that we often end up stating there is “nothing new under the sun”. However, analysing the changes in paradigm and the instruments being used along with those occurring in society as a whole means we can put them in context, identify their causes and specific goals and develop appropriate strategies of resistance and counter-attack. In fact repression changes and understanding it in its transformations should be of interest to those who are determined “always to do better” in the anarchist struggle against all power.
In the specific case that concerns me the most interesting part is the report that the prosecutor presented to the investigating judge with the request for custodial measures. The “wide overview” that the investigation aspires to is evident right from the first pages, an investigation whose declared goal is that of understanding the recent development of the anarchist movement in the Italian territory and, in the case in point, what some are referring to as the “New Anarchy”.

We (Maverick Cell – FAI) claim responsibility for the arson attack on 20 October 2020 at the police office in front of the University Tanjungpura-Pontianak (West Borneo) because of our unstoppable anger and disgust against the police apparatus (the enemy in human form). We’re disgusted by those who want to cooperate and support the police apparatus and their bullshit rehabilitation, we only want to attack. We don’t have any illusion to correct the very nature of police brutality. We don’t offer a solution- we want an uncompromising collapse of the system -, and “You” have to take control of yourself because of the chaos tricks of the state and the capitalists “you” support. And also this action is condemnation for progressive students who pretend to act on behalf of the people (especially in Pontianak) but still they’re a cult for identity politics by saying “Long live students!”, and they colluded with the police for the arrests of our brothers.
Our starting point as anarchists is to believe that anarchy is a complete negation of authority. The absence of “justifying” the authoritarianism in the natural form must be destroyed. This thinking finds that deepness within ourselves: autonomy, self-care, love; take control from yourself to yourself. Our turning point is getting stuck in a crowd of mass action that determines a time and attitude within the act. We become complacent about moralization, and therefore the passion was hidden. We become who we are not. This is of course paralysis but not death; comrades who attack head-on are antibodies to us – we feel so – and this “gift” is the spark point that must resonate.
This attack is dedicated to anarchists and fellow subversives held by the state. And also for the brave Mikhail Zhlobitsky. Solidarity with the entire Combatant Indonesia and the World.
RESONANCE FOR INSURRECTIONARIES

Kami (Maverick Cell – FAI) bertanggung jawab serangan pembakaran pada tanggal 20 Oktober 2020 di kantor pos polisi depan Universitas
Tanjungpura-Pontianak karena kemarahan dan kemuakan tak terbendung lagi terhadap aparat kepolisian (musuh dalam diri manusia). Kami menyangkal, mereka yang mengingkan sekaligus menghidupi aparat kepolisian agar mengayomi seseorang, dengan serangan. Kami tidak akan menuntut “anda” untuk merefomasi kepolisian karena brutalitas. Tidak solusi yang akan kami berikan – melainkan kehendak keruntuhan tanpa kompromi -, dan “anda” harus mengambil kendali untuk diri sendiri karena kekacauan muslihat yang diperbuat oleh negara dan kapitalis yang “kalian” dukung. Dan juga tindakan ini adalah kecaman untuk para mahasiswa progresif mengatas-namakan rakyat(secara khusus di Pontianak) namun masih mengkultuskan identitas politik dengan berkata “Hidup Mahasiswa!” Dan bersekongkol dengan aparat kepolisian atas penangkapan saudara-saudara dalam aksi massa!
Titik awal kami sebagai anarkis ialah yakin bahwa anarki adalah menyangkal otoritas. Ketiadaan atas “membenarkan” ototarian sebagai wujud yang alami mesti dihancurkan. Pemikiran ini menemukan bahwa dalam diri kami sendiri : otonomi, jaga diri, cinta kasih; mengambil kendali dari diri sendiri untuk diri sendiri. Titik balik kami adalah terjebak dalam kerumunan aksi massa yang menentukan satu waktu dan sikap dalam bertindak. Kami terlena atas moralisasi tersebut, dan karenanya gairah kami terpendam. Kami menjadi yang bukan diri kami sendirinya. Ini tentu kelumpuhan namun bukan kematian ; rekan-rekan yang menyerang lansung adalah antibodi bagi kami -kami merasa begitu- dan “pemberian” ini adalah titik api yang harus beresonansi.
Serangan dengan klaim ini kami dedikasi untuk rekan-rekan anarkis dan subversif yang ditahan oleh negara. Dan juga buat Mikhail Zhlobitsky yang berani – sang kalatisator. Solidaritas untuk Kombatan seluruh Indonesia dan Dunia.
RESONANSI BUAT PEMBERONTAK!

Arson of Labour Offices Building in Regent Complex of Keerom, West Papua by ‘Long Live Eric King Revolutionary Cell – FAI/FRI’
Wednesday, October 14th, 2020
PT Freeport Indonesia (FI) has been present in Papua for decades since the start of the annexation of West Papua by colonial Indonesia. What PT FI produces is only natural destruction, expulsion of indigenous people, and genocide. We think Freeport’s existence can only be destroyed if West Papua is separated from Indonesia, but it is not the formation of a West Papua state that we want, but the West Papua Confederation, people control not state control!
We (Long Live Eric King Revolutionary Cell – Informal Anarchist Federation) send our greetings to Lekagak Telengen, Egianus Kogoya, and other West Papuan guerrillas who are among the lush forests of Papua. We invite our comrades who live in cities to start urban guerrilla units and start attacks on the symbols of capitalism and the colonial state of Indonesia.
We clearly declare our hostility towards the opportunist politician Benny Wenda and other shits at the ULMWP who can live comfortably in a foreign country while trying to take struggle for West Papua liberation leadership control. True liberation is from gun and civilian insurrection, not lobbies in air-conditioned buildings!
We also don’t forget to send our hugs to comrades in Indonesia who are starting a rebellion against the Omnibus Law and Joko Widodo’s neoliberal regime, to our comrades in Malaysia who have to face repression for fighting the fascist kingdom of Malaysia, to the YPG-YPJ guerrillas in Rojava who are facing asymmetrical war against Turkey, and anti-authoritarian insurgents around the world.
We claim the burning of the labour offices building in the regent office complex of Keerom, West Papua during the riots on 1 October 2020. We are among the masses angry at Indonesian colonialism, this is just our opening attack and this is not the last. Get ready for explosion and explosion that will keep on the track!
If the state and capitalism still exist, peace will never be realized. Therefore, the state and capitalism must be destroyed at once !!
Let the fire light up the liberation of West Papua.

Yogyakarta – Indonesia : We claim the burning of a luxury car in front of the Sinar Mas office last night on Ring Road Utara Yogyakarta. And it’s not just solidarity for combatants on the streets against the Omnibus Law. But because we understand that the Sinar Mas Group is responsible for the destruction of rainforests in Indonesia to be converted into the palm oil industry.
Solidarity for all combatants throughout Indonesia. Solidarity with Belarus. Solidarity for anarchists in Chile, Greece, Hong Kong, Rojava!
Long Live the Rebellion!

Statement by Alfredo Cospito read in the courtroom on September 9, 2020 for the appeal of the Scripta Manent trial
I would have liked to be silent and let only my lawyer speak (who is more than capable), but seeing that my ideas have been torn to shreds and that words that I have never said have also been put in my mouth, I am forced to intervene directly in the first person.
For us anarchists the end does not justify the means, we firmly believe in the ethics of the means we use, for us it is the means that justify the end, not the other way around.
That is why I must reiterate that I have never made an apology for massacres or mass murder (as stated by – the prosecutor – Sparagna in a previous hearing). The prosecutor is confused, deliberately confusing “terrorism” with “massacre.”
Two ugly words (without a doubt): one belongs to me, “terrorism”, the other is totally foreign to me, “massacre.”
(I open a brief parenthesis on “terrorism”)
Sparagna, in order to create the monster (“the bloodthirsty anarchist,” myself, so we can understand each other), has fished in the context of many of my writings, extrapolating phrases at random. Phrases that are the result of a diatribe (from one of the many debates) that our movement is going through, “the legitimacy of the use or not of the term ‘terrorism’ in an anarchist sphere.” For those who are not anarchists, it is difficult to understand the passion with which we anarchists collide on certain issues.

Il numero 5 del giornale anarchico “Vetriolo” uscirà in un’inedita edizione murale, online e cartaceo. Una scelta, la nostra, che non rappresenta un mutamento editoriale definitivo, rispetto alle solite lunghe analisi critiche, di attualità e teoriche. Con ogni probabilità, “Vetriolo” tornerà nel consueto formato. La scelta di una edizione murale nasce nei mesi di prigionia di massa disposta dallo Stato con il pretesto dell’emergenza Coronavirus. Abbiamo sentito in questi mesi l’esigenza di una comunicazione in grado di rompere il distanziamento che le autorità vorrebbero interporre tra ciascuno di noi. Abbiamo sentito il desiderio di vedere appesi nei muri nelle nostre città le nostre e le vostre «grida» contro la repressione, tanto più in un momento a nostro avviso importante per l’anarchismo tutto, rappresentato dal processo d’appello dell’operazione «Scripta Manent», nonché dalle innumerevoli inchieste che le procure d’Italia continuano a indirizzare contro il movimento anarchico. Un’edizione murale vuole anche essere uno strumento in mano a quei refrattari che volessero sfuggire a futuri scenari autoritari, come l’antico gesto di appendere un manifesto. Divulghiamo, come anticipazione, il nostro articolo sul processo «Scripta Manent». Un contributo in vista del prossimo fine settimana di mobilitazioni.
A breve gli altri scritti e il manifesto murale. Per richieste di copie e contatti: vetriolo[at]autistici.org.

Buenos Aires, Argentina. June 2020
“…Anarchism is either illegal or it’s not anarchism. That is its essence and its meaning. Its nature. For the same reason, it sometimes seems so obvious to us that we forget to insist punctiliously on the anti-authoritarian and therefore, the consequently anti-systemic character of anarchism. Rabidly anti-systemic! We are against all authority. That is our maxim… That we are against the system of domination, that we are fighting against the social order as a whole, we are objecting to its order and the laws that support it. All laws have been and will be made to give legal support to oppression and domination…”
– Gustavo Rodriguez
This is an appeal to our friends, to our comrades, like-minded and not so like-minded. A warm invitation to practice beautiful disobedience and take back our lives. A call to conflict against all that exists here and now, assuming the consequences of a life at war.
For anyone who lives in the territory dominated by the Argentine State, or almost anywhere in the world, currently there is a state of alert in the face of the current situation. The appearance and expansion of covid-19 quickly became a global problem, and while we do not want to question its existence or veracity, we want to show how the “epidemiological outbreak” unmasks the harmfulness of the class society and neoliberal capitalism maintained by the States its main economic groups.

Three weeks ago a 4G/3G mobile phone tower was torched. We did this as a response of pure hostility to the technoindustrial nightmare we are living in.
Like a vengeful wraith, we placed our enchanted incendiary devises in the cables connecting the tower to the leviathanic network. We howled to the moon when we lit the fuses and cursed the civilisation for all eternity. Only by fire can the technoindustrial leviathan be exorcised. Minutes later the cables were engulfed by a raging fire making the tower loose its connection to cyberspace. In the sudden silence when mobile phone calls and internet connections became emptiness, only the devouring fire could be heard.
Only darkness brings us to the place where we feel at home. The bright industrial lights that make the city shine burnes our eyes and clouds our hearts. But the cybernetic silence we caused with our fire to the tower made our bodies feel alive and joy filling our hearts.
Today everything is back to normality except the burnt cables and the silenced tower. Programmers and bosses are waging the next assault on our beloved darkness. 5G towers are now live in Malmö, Gothenburg and Stockholm. The next level of Levathianic control are rolled out in front of our eyes. The slaves of the society are applauding their incarceration.
We wish that the totality of civilisation was engulfed in flames. Burnt to ashes darkness would finally flourish. In every step our foot touch the concrete and asphalt we put a curse on Leviathan. In every step our foot touch earth and soil and plants and roots we sing our joy for the dark and the wild.
We know that a future without Leviathan never will come but this doesn’t stop us from dreaming of its death. It never stops us from conjuring incendiary devices burning its rotting body. It never stops us from cursing its shining armour and techno industrial light. Kill kill kill is all that Leviathan can say. Burn burn burn is our response.
Little cursing and conjuring lovers of darkness

The following interview is the 3rd part in an ongoing dialogue between anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito, who is currently imprisoned at Ferrara Prison, and the editors of the Italian anarchist newspaper Vetriolo [Vitriol]. As far as we know, the first part of the interview has not been made available in English, however part two was translated by the Abolition Media Worldwide comrades in April 2019. Vetriolo have published the interview in parts, and have plans to publish the interview in its entirety in a forthcoming publication. We hope that we have captured the original spirit of the interview with our translation, however we are acutely aware of the possibility that some errors may have been made and we welcome any correspondence regarding any errors that may need correcting. To request copies of Vetriolo, they can be contacted via vetriolo[at]autistici.org
In some of your recent writings you have wanted to open a debate on: action and affinity groups, individual actions, claims of responsibility, ways to informally organize oneself among anarchists and propaganda through direct action. There are many different experiences that reach the present day, many and diverse within the different tensions of anarchism. We do not believe that there is, for the anarchism of action, an unavailability or impossibility with respect to the current historical context. Anarchists, in different ways and in every age, have always acted “here and now”. We would like to ask you, evaluating these experiences and different ways of acting and organizing in a horizontal and anti-authoritarian way: could one say that there is, especially in Italy, an ideological prejudice against “informal organization”, “anarchist groups”, and “claims of responsibility”? Equally, is the debate, which often ends up in mockery for its own sake, far from being able to confirm absolute validity or theoretical-practical evidence regarding “reproducibility, informality, anonymity”, in the Italian context conditioned by methodical, functional and a priori productive calculations, in a distorted logic of “factions”?
The “ideological” prejudice against informal organisation here is nothing new. Although there is no doubt that some concretizations of informal practice are more acceptable to “classical” anarchist organising than others. The “small” reproducible, unclaimed actions against structures of domination, without initials of any kind, create fewer problems than actions that endanger the lives of men and women in power, especially if these are claimed with initials that have a constancy over time. The former compared to the latter are more acceptable to the “movement” for the simple reason that they give rise to less intense repression by the State. The rejection of insurrectionism or informal experiences such as FAI/FRI by “classical” anarchism is almost always motivated as an “ethical” rejection of violence and specifically of certain actions (bomb attacks, arson attacks, parcel bombs, knee-cappings, expropriations…).

Italia: Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara. Terza parte (Vetriolo)
Thursday, March 26th, 2020
Il testo che riportiamo qui è la terza e ultima parte di “Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara”, pubblicata nel mese di marzo 2020 nel numero 4 del giornale anarchico “Vetriolo”. Le parti prima e seconda sono state pubblicate rispettivamente nel numero 2 (autunno 2018) e 3 (inverno 2019). Data la complessità e la vastità degli argomenti trattati e del testo stesso, non è stato possibile pubblicarlo integralmente in un solo numero del giornale e si è scelto di suddividerlo in tre parti. Tutto lo scritto verrà stampato in un volume di prossima pubblicazione.
Con l’occasione, segnaliamo e correggiamo un errore presente nella terza parte (invitiamo a fare attenzione a questo passaggio durante la lettura del giornale). L’errore si trova nella quarta colonna di pagina 11, righe 4 – 11. Per una maggiore comprensione riportiamo l’intera frase: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivoluzione» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».
L’errore è nella parola «rivoluzione», cui bisogna sostituire «rivolta». Quindi la frase corretta è: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivolta» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».

The coronavirus is sweeping around the world. Death tolls are rising and the capitalist economy is seeing new lows for every day. The nation state apparatuses are using warlike measures to battle the pandemic. Borders closing, blanket curfews, quarantines, forced labour, the only people allowed in the streets are cops. It’s the state apparatus wet dream coming true. For us anarchists it is our worst nightmare turning into reality. What we see is a glimpse of the future. If there ever is a day civilisation falls to ruins this is somewhat how it will look like.
There will be no end of what measures state apparatuses will use to gain control. And in this game, who will be sacrificed? It will be the precarious workers, the migrants, the women associated persons… the others.
The coronavirus is our Earths latest weapon against the humans (Earlier versions were the Spanish flu and AIDS). This pandemic is a population control, a hit back and a revenge for all the wild animals, plants and habitats that the humans have enslaved, annihilated and destroyed. The coronavirus turns the civilisers who
thought they where immortal into mere mortals. What it all comes down to is a show of power. If humans ever thought they had some sort of control the coronavirus clearly shows what illusion this is. Humans and the civilisation have no control, no matter how much they try to annihilate the wild and the free. If our planet decides that our moment of rule is over, in an instant, just like that – people looking pale, some sneezing, some coughing, some deaths… silence… (more…)

“…Light in the Shadow
The enemy’s got to watch out
That only from that ancient place
The foundation stone could emerge
Which is spreading out of control
This land called
Our beloved America
And if necessary in the future
We will change the name.”
– Sergio Terenzi (el Urubu)
1. (A) INTRO MODE
The handful of reflections that follow have come to us almost unintentionally. They are one more contribution to the debate on the issues that move us; a small stop on the troubled road we are now travelling. It is good to share visions about what worries us and throw them like a bottle into the sea… Perhaps they will serve to fertilize the sowing and/or sharpen the tools suitable to advance in the realization of what we dream…To all the warriors of praxis a sincere embrace from the region that fails to dominate (as they would like) the self-proclaimed state of Sargentino. May 1000 new rebellions flourish.
II. OF BEINGS AND DEEDS
We do not underestimate or mock the many ancient pagan cultures that are seeing, in these present times, the signs of an inevitable decline throughout the entire ill-treated and agonized blue planet that we inhabit. And we don’t dismiss it because (among other things…) beyond mysticism and conspiracies, the harsh reality shows us that this IS so. We feel the vertigo of the events in our skin; and we consider that it is a “self-fulfilling prophecy”. We refuse to look the other way as it would be alienating. The question is rather: what do we do?

Kiev: FAI Cell “Misha Zhlobitsky” take responsibility for cell tower arson – Black December (Ukraine)
Sunday, December 29th, 2019
Anarchist sites report that in recent months in Donetsk and Kiev region base stations (aka towers) of mobile operators were attacked 4 times. Behind the attacks are mostly anarchists.
The first attack was to blow up the base station of the Phoenix operator. Then it was reported that two Lifecell towers were set on fire. December 10, 2019 it was reported about the arson of the mobile base station “Vodafone Ukraine”.
For example, when attacking the Lifecell communication towers, anarchists claimed that the main reason for the attack was solidarity with the Democratic Federation of North and East Syria (Rojava), the struggle of the Kurdish people for liberation from the Turkish occupation.
Wishing to give intensity to these attacks, we, a cell of the Informal Anarchist Federation, set fire to another cell communication base station in Kiev. Unlike the aforementioned attacks, our motives and view of the targets under attack are different. We suggest taking a broader look at the topic of communication towers.
Mobile operators are eager to capture as many subscribers as possible. This is a fact. There are three main operators in Ukraine: “Kyivstar”, “Vodafone Ukraine”, Lifecell. These companies do anything to place their mobile antennas everywhere, to get more money and control. They do not care what we think about it. But the most important thing is that the operators cooperate perfectly with the police, leaking them all the data of their subscribers. Each mobile operator receives more than 20,000 court orders annually for temporary access to things and documents.

Italy: Prometeo Operation – References for benefits and updates
REPRESSIVE OPERATION ‘PROMETEO’
Natascia, Robert and Beppe were arrested on May 21st 2019. They were accused of sending three explosive packages in 2017 to the PM (public prosecutor) Sparagna and Rinaudo, and to Santi Consolo, who was the director of the DAP (Department for the Penitentiary Administration) of Rome. More information is available here.
UPDATES ABOUT NATASCIA, ROBERT AND BEPPE
Natascia has been imprisoned in the jail of L’Aquila, in the AS2 (high security) section, which is actually a 41-bis section. Anna, another comrade, is also imprisoned in this section. She was arrested in 2016 following a repressive operation called SCRIPTA MANENT. Silvia is still being held in the jail of Turin (Torino) where she was transferred in order to be present for minor trials. Natascia began a hunger strike while she was in the jail of Rebibbia (in Rome), in solidarity with Anna and Silvia who began a hunger strike to demand the closing of the AS2 section in L’Aquila. All the three of them ended the hunger strike on June 28th (Anna and Silvia maintained the hunger strike for one month). Right after the end of the hunger strike, after almost 6 weeks of detention, Natascia received her first visit in jail. On July 11th, the re-examination hearing was held, which Nat was only allowed to attend by video conference. (more…)
