International Solidarity Call from Italy : ‘Who Aspires to Freedom Cannot Be ‘Measured’

Monday, September 14th, 2020

«From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

As recipients of these kind of minor measures, together we want to relaunch our solidarity with the more than 200 comrades involved in the various trials in Italy that are starting this September and that shall continue throughout the autumn.
In particular, the appeal trial of the Scripta Manent Operation will resume at the beginning of September: this trial involves 5 comrades who have been in prison for 4 years (two of them for 8 years) and which has resulted in 20+ years of sentence in the first grade. (more…)

Italy: Letter of Beppe from Pavia prison

Sunday, July 19th, 2020

July 4th, 2020

The following text is a letter from the anarchist Giuseppe Bruna, imprisoned since May 21st, 2019, for the «Prometeo» repressive operation, currently imprisoned in Pavia prison. To write to him: Giuseppe Bruna, C. C. di Pavia, via Vigentina 85, 27100 Pavia, Italy.

Dearly beloved,

I hope this one of mine finds you well!

I am writing to report a serious situation (yet another!) that I found myself facing between the afternoon of July 3rd and midnight of July 4th! As you will be aware, I have been locked up since about a year in a cell alone in the «protected» section [a section where are held ex-cops, infamous, pedophiles, rapists, ecc.] of Pavia’s jail!, I have always refused such placement by putting in place various forms of struggle (hunger strike, air strike, etc.).

The [incomprehensible word, probably could be «direction»] health care of the Pavia jail, even though I was never underwent any medical examination (even if there was a specific request of the judge for the preliminary investigations, Basilone), stated that I am under treatment (with what?) for my thyroid lymph node (which has never been checked here) and that I had a serious form of bronchopneumonia and in case of need they would have provided to help me!

Italia: Attacco incendiario polizia locale Genova. 24/25 giugno 2020

EN | Genoa, Italy: Incendiary Attack Against a Police Vehicle Depot in Marassi

I danni della globalizzazione sono arrivati anche in occidente e ci siamo trovati a farne I conti direttamente. La reazione non è stata certo in una prospettiva di soluzione delle cause, bensì un ulteriore passo veloce verso il progresso ed un intensificarsi del dominio tecno-scientifico, della trasformazione e del rapido adeguamento delle logiche di autoritarismo e profitto.
Anche in tempi di pandemia il governo ha garantito gli affari delle case farmaceutiche e dei signori della guerra. Attraverso le politiche capitaliste gli Stati hanno continuato la produzione industriale a scapito dei lavoratori e le operazioni militari a scapito di intere popolazioni.
Anche nel porto di Genova hanno continuato a transitare navi cariche di carri armati e altri armamenti, dirette verso gli Emirati Arabi.

Lo Stato ha chiarito quali sono I suoi interessi, molto lontani dai reali bisogni degli individui, ed in continuità con la politica tecno-industriale:
imposizione di tecnologie nocive come il 5G e controllo sociale di massa (realizzato con la militarizzazione dei territori, l’accellerazione tecnologica e l’utilizzo di vari mezzi come droni, GPS, motoscafi, elicotteri e vari progetti “smart”). (more…)

Italy: Update on Operation “Prometeo”

Friday, February 21st, 2020

IT/EN

On February 14th, the notice of conclusion of the preliminary investigation for the repressive operation called Prometeo (“Prometheus”) that led to the arrest of Natascia, Robert and Beppe was served (for all previous updates you can see this link). After 20 days from the notification, the prosecutor will evaluate how to proceed and will set a preliminary hearing.

Yesterday’s news, however, that the request for house arrest as an alternative to custody in prison, submitted by Natascia’s lawyers, was unfortunately rejected. The lawyers will have until 28 February to challenge the rejection and appeal.

Appeal to comrades, people in solidarity and affinity for widespread solidarity:

Repression updates from Italy

Monday, January 20th, 2020

Italy: Updates about some anarchist prisoners (January 2020)

We briefly summarize the latest updates on the situation of some anarchist prisoners in Italy.

On November 29, 2019 a search took place in the cell of the Sardinian anarchist Davide Delogu, imprisoned in the Rossano Calabro prison. At the same time, he was notified of the opening of an investigation for “association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (art. 270bis of Italian criminal code). Subsequently, he was returned some previously seized manuscripts. A week later, the guards informed him that a telephone had been found in the sewers of the prison and that they intended to charge him with its possession; Davide refused to be x-rayed and undressed.

We remind you that a solidarity fund has been opened for Davide Delogu, the coordinates are: Owner: Laura Gargiulo. Iban: IT27E0306967684510327514549.

This is the address of the comrade: Davide Delogu, C. R. di Rossano Calabro, Contrada Ciminata snc, 87067 Corigliano-Rossano (Cs), Italy.

For the repressive operation “Prometeo” (arrests of May 21, 2019) Natascia and Beppe remains in the prisons of Piacenza and Pavia respectively. On December 2, 2019, Robert, accused in the same operation, was released from Bancali prison, in Sardinia, without any precautionary measures. The release came following the decision of the court of review after the cassation, in October, had annulled the order of pre-trial detention for lack of “serious indications of guilt”. The appeal in cassation had been requested for Robert and Beppe, but for the latter it was rejected. Recently, the public prosecutor in turn lodged an appeal in cassation opposing Robert’s release; the hearing has been set for February 4, 2020. The “Prometeo” investigation is still open. The censorship in the correspondence of Natascia has been removed. (more…)

Repression updates from Italy

Sunday, December 22nd, 2019

Further arrest warrant for Giuseppe, anarchist imprisoned for the “Prometeo” operation (17/12/2019)

We learn that on the morning of Tuesday December 17th, 2019, Giuseppe, already in prison for the “Prometeo” operation (arrests of May 21st, for which Natascia is also imprisoned, while Robert was released), has received another mandate of arrest as part of an operation conducted by the ROS (“Special Operational Grouping”) of the Carabinieri under the direction of the Antiterrorism pool of the Turin Prosecutor’s Office. He is accused of attempting to destroy a postamat (ATM) in Genoa with an incendiary device, an action dating back to June 2016. This action was included in the list of facts that corroborated the accusations of the “Scintilla” operation (arrests of February 7th and eviction of the Asilo Occupato in Turin).

To write to him:

Italy: Update on Operation Prometheus

Sunday, September 29th, 2019

IT/EN/FR

Italy: “Prometeo” repressive operation – Update on Natascia and a few words on the reasons given to confirm her precautionary custody in prison (September 2019)

“Trials are set up for anarchists for what anarchists are, enemies of the State”.

A little more than one week ago, a public ordinance of the Milan tribunal was published, which outlined the reasons given during the review that confirmed her precautionary custody while she is awaiting trial. This previously happened with Robert and Beppe, who were also arrested on 21 May as part of a repressive operation called “Prometeo”.

A slew of reasons were subdivided into many paragraphs that were titled, “degree of harmfulness of rudimentary ordnances sent”, “the need for precautionary measures”, “evidence of serious indications of guilt” and the “juridical qualification of the offence in the perspective of some constituent elements, including under the profile of the psychological element”.

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – An update about Giuseppe

Sunday, September 15th, 2019

In recent weeks, as already written, Beppe was transferred from the AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] section of the Rossano Calabro prison to the Pavia prison. The interview with the lawyer showed that he is in the protected section, where there are collaborators of justice, former law enforcement officers, sex offenders and trans and homosexual prisoners (who have explicitly requested to be among the protected). Beppe had requested to be transferred from the Rossano AS2, where the vast majority of prisoners are Islamic, due to incompatibility and had also requested an approach to his home, thus indicating the AS2 sections of the north-center of Italy where there are currently anarchist comrades. The provocative response to his request was the transfer to the protected section of the Pavia prison. Let’s not leave him alone!

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – Text of Robert from the prison of Bancali (Sassari) + Giuseppe was transferred from the prison of Rossano Calabro to that of Pavia (Italy)

Sunday, September 15th, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am Robert and from 6 July I find myself locked up in the prison of Sassari. I am accused together with two comrades of sending “explosive bags” to two public prosecutors, Sparagna and Rinaudo, and to the director of the DAP [1]. At dawn on May 21st [2019] we were searched and taken to jail. Beppe and I were locked up in Opera, where we spent a month in the “observation” section. This is the area where prisoners are placed who must serve the 15 days of punitive isolation or those considered to be of high risk for self-harm. In our case, we found ourselves in that section, given that Opera does not have an AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] but “only” AS1, AS3 and the inevitable 41bis. Having been banned from communicating with the other inmates, we spent a month in single cells with the blind permanently closed and an hour of air in the morning in a squalid narrow courtyard. In that section it was also forbidden to use cookers, so we adapted to the prison food, which was almost always inedible. Not that I had ever had any expectations for these places of psychological and physical annihilation. (more…)

Italy: Transfer of Robert, arrested for the “Prometeo” operation

We remember that Natascia, Giuseppe and Robert were arrested on May 21st, 2019, during a repressive operation called “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”), carried out by the Carabinieri [Paramilitary police] of the ROS [Special Branch] and which involved some searches. The main accusation is of “attack with terrorist or subversive purposes”, since they are considered responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the p. m. Rinaudo (prosecutor in several trials against the antagonist movement and the anarchists) and Sparagna (prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta Manent” operation) and Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Prison Administration”) in Rome. They are not accused of any “associative” crime (such as articles 270 or 270bis, c. p.).

Below are the addresses of Natascia and Giuseppe:

Natascia Savio
C. C. de L’Aquila

Italy: Updates on the anarchists arrested for the “Prometeo” operation

Monday, July 1st, 2019

(25/06/2019)

After the arrests of 21 May 2019 for the repressive operation “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”), Robert and Beppe were imprisoned in the Opera prison in Milan until June 21st, while Natascia was imprisoned in France.

In the maximum security prison of Opera, Robert and Beppe spent an entire month in isolation in section 41bis, as there is no AS2 section [“High Surveillance 2”], with only an hour a day of “socializing” by being able to see each other, and the rest of the day with the barrier closed. This “illegal” regime was reported to the judge, PM and guarantor of the detainees, especially since the isolation had not been requested by the judge, but nothing changed for a month. (more…)
