Latest direct actions in Italy:
12 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “On Wednesday night, November 12th, we attacked 5 ATMs with hammer and vandalized several luxury cars (punctured tires and broken windows), as a minimum gesture of individual revolt against a capitalist system that exploits and devastates.
We dedicate this action to the compagni and the compagna accused of attacking the TAV construction yard in May 2013 as well as to all anarchist prisoners. We cannot stand idly by while our comrades are buried under years of imprisonment, or limit ourselves to symbolic acts that do not cause any nuisance.
The only solidarity is attack!”
15 November, Venezia: according to the media, the justice palace was vandalized with paint and spraypaint against the TAV: “Free the no tav prisoners”.
17 November, Napoli: according to the media, an explosive device containing 1 kilo of black powder was found unexploded in front of a Deutsche Bank in the neighborhood of Vomero. Until now no-one claimed the action.
18 November, Cremona: according to the media, a PD (=Democratic Party) office was vandalized in Cremona, with a smashed window, damage to the videosurveillance cameras and spray-paints like: “Stop evictions”, “PD=Police”, “Corvetto resists” and “Free the no tav prisoners”.
18 November, Milano: according to the media, during the night an ALER office in via Inganni was set on fire. This happened a few hours after the eviction of two anarchist squats and other houses and the resistance to it. A window was smashed and a molotov cocktail thrown inside, with heavy damages to furniture, computers, papers and other material (picture: http://www.informa-azione.info/files/0milanoaler.jpg) .
ALER is the company responsible for the recent plan of evicting hundreds of occupied houses, for the business of the thousands of houses left vacant, for property speculations on housing projects in Milano.
Unknown date, Viterbo: anonymous claim: “An animal liberation activist once wrote that in the last twenty years the number of vegetarians and vegans has increased dramatically, but the number of activists has remained the same. This made us think and we decided to bring animal liberation back to its true meaning: to free animals. One November night we visited a small farm in Orte (Province of Viterbo); we opened the doors of the cages that imprisoned ten rabbits, giving them freedom. We then opened the henhouse and carried away with us about 10 turkeys and other birds. We dedicate this action to those who are truly active, in the way and form they prefer, and not on social networks!”
20 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “20th of november is the day of remembrance for the people killed for being trans. This year the registered deaths in the world are 226. We decided to attack a catholic church because it is a symbol of the anti-trans oppression. The violence experienced by trans people is the consequence of their moral and anti-gender rules. In the night of 20/11 we attacked the church of San Paolo in via vismara 2. We glued the locks of several doors, we threw pink paint on the facade and spraypainted: “20/11 NIGHT OF TRANS REVENGE” on the front door. LET’S ATTACK THE CHURCHES! REVENGE AND NOT ONLY REMEMBRANCE!”
22 November, Trento: according to the media, the local office of PD party was painted and some writings were left like: “Freedom for the arrested in Valsusa”, “No PD – Corvetto resists”, “NO TAV – no evictions”. The traffic was blocked and a banner against high speed was hanged. Some days before, on the 19th, an high speed train was blocked in the train station in solidarity with the No Tav resistance; the sides were spraypainted with slogans dedicated to Rémi Fraisse and for the freedom of arrested comrades.
