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…)

Athens, Greece: Greek State Begins Evictions of Anarchist and Refugee Squats in Exarcheia

Thursday, August 29th, 2019

(IT) Atene, Grecia: Lo Stato greco ha iniziato gli sgomberi di edifici occupati da anarchici e persone migranti nel quartiere di Exarcheia

The first major repressive attack against Exarcheia by the far-right wing New Democracy Party began on the morning of August 26, as police arrested 143 people from four different anarchist and refugee squats.

The following are English translations of statements by the German-language website The Hydra World and Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (Revolutionary Anarchist Action), an anarchist group, based in Turkey.

The Attack Has Begun – First Evictions of Squats in Exarcheia

The first wave of attack against autonomous life in Exarcheia is part of a massive plan to transform the area into the Montmartre of Athens… an operation that is scheduled to take five years. At the end of the tunnel is the successful construction of the Exarcheia Metro Station. Intermediate stations along the way to this are the eviction of squats, the expulsion of refugees and the enforcement of full police control over Exarcheia. To support the police actions, an intervention force was formed from various parts of the city administration – from cleanliness to environment to city infrastructure. Graffiti is to be removed, smart lanterns installed and the dismantling of “Anarchy in Exarcheia” organized. (more…)

“Raided. Radical. Motivated.” : Liebig 34 – Berlin (Germany)

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

This morning [20/7], the cops of the LKA 5.21 unit under the command of Kranich raided Liebig34. Unusual was the saturday, unusual the mix of units from different departments. New were a few civil cop faces, not new: the repression.

The reason for this raid was probably stones thrown from the house during the last few weeks. After the cops collected stones from the Dorfplatz around 2:30 this morning, they obtained a court order and search warrant to search part of our house and returned around 6:30 a.m.. They came through the backyard and the front door, sawed the doors and barris, picked them up and thus forcibly gained access to our project. A lawyer was quickly on the scene and was able to observe and testify. Altogether the cops were about three hours in the house, having searched officially and intensively three connected rooms and the attic. They also snooped around in unlocked private rooms, tore posters from the walls, knocked over furniture, cut internet cables and destroyed windows. (more…)

Support an anarchist who was sentenced in so-called Germany

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2019

Support an anarchist who was sentenced in so-called Germany. This person was captured by a civilian security guard in a shopping mall while nonviolently expropriating some goods. Without noticing he has a small pocket knife on him which he didn’t want to use as weapon. Even though he was accused of: A theft with a weapon prepared to use.

The German court imposed punishment of 90 days in prison or paying 1000 Euro. That means if he doesn’t pay those money he will have to spend three months in prison. The Czech ABC group decided to support him with organising a money collection. You can send your solidarity contribution to an account at: https://abcnews.noblogs.org/kontakt/ or put it in a box by the ABC stall at public events.

The expropriation is not a crime. Different forms of expropriation of capitalist and state sources is a legitimate way of a fight against dictatorship of a capital. We are supporting those who act in this way and are punished.

Solidarity is our weapon!

Florence, Italy: Last hearings of the trial for the “Panico” operation

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

The hearings from 15 to 18 July, 2019, are confirmed, but due to the absence of one of the judges the sentence (scheduled for July 22nd) could slip, by a maximum of one week, apparently.

For Giova, Paska and Ghespe under house arrest, was asked the transport by their own means for the hearings, therefore without an escort. For Paska has also been asked to temporarily move house arrest to a house near Florence.

As regards presences in the courtroom, Paska should therefore be present at all hearings. Giova and Ghespe will certainly not come to the hearing on the 15th, but for the following ones they still haven’t decided.

We remember that the hearings will be:
15 July – Deposition of the digos [“political police”] on the last part of the environmental interceptions [surveillance transcripts].
16 July – Public prosecutor indictment and civil parties.
17 and 18 July – Defensive harangues.
22 (?) July – Reading of the device (sentence).

All will start at 9.00 am, in room 28 (basement) at the courthouse in Novoli (Florence).

Note: During the course of the month of June 2019 the three imprisoned anarchists, Paska, Giovanni and Salvatore (Ghespe), were transferred from the prisons of Viterbo and Sollicciano (Florence) to house arrest.

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…)
