Words of comrade Marcelo Villarroel from prison. From Chile to Italy –
A loud cry of insurrectional complicity for Alfredo Cóspito!!!
Alfredo Cóspito is an anarchist comrade from Turin imprisoned since September 2012 after the kneecapping of Roberto Adinolfi (on May 7), executive director of Italian nuclear company Ansaldo Nucleare. This act claimed by the “Olga” Cell Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front for which he was sentenced to 10 years and 8 months. He was also sentenced to 20 years (first degree), for the explosive attack on the Carabinieri training school in Fossano (Cuneo) on June 2, 2006, claimed by Terrible Anonymous Revolt – Informal Anarchist Federation, which provoked the state response through the operation “Scripta Manent”.

Alfredo has been an anarchist comrade in active praxis for decades. Always consistent with his anti-authoritarian projectuality, he has maintained several antagonistic initiatives for which, even though he has been in prison for more than 10 years, the Italian fascist state does not forgive him.

In May of this year he was transferred to the Bancali prison in Sardinia where he was locked up under the 41 bis extreme isolation regime.

This prison regime was the Italian state’s response in 1992 to the rising violence of the mafia.

Since then, political prisoners of the Red Brigades have also been imprisoned under the same regime.

Today Alfredo is the first Anarchist held under this sick system of isolation. To be clear, in Italy a prisoner can die because of 41-bis, isolated in a special penitentiary regime which, among other restrictions, consists of being isolated for 22 hours a day, visits restricted to one per month with a member of his/her family for a maximum time of one hour and through a glass barrier, being banned from receiving books or “any other kind of documents” from the outside, and a strict limitation of relations with other prisoners.

At this moment Alfredo has been on hunger strike for more than a month, risking his life and using the only weapon possible: his body. Likewise the comrades Juan Sorroche in the prison of Terni, Anna Beniamino in Rebbibia and Ivan Alocco in A. Villepinte in France have remained on hunger strike in active solidarity with the comrade and his urgent demand to get out of this sick regime of punishment and isolation.

From an extensive time in prison of almost 15 years in territory occupied by the Chilean state, I make a strong call to redouble the combative and complicit solidarity with Alfredo using all possible and imaginable tools in all territories where the anarchist and subversive anti-authoritarian consciousness is expressed in multiple ways, breaking from ghettos and sects, advancing to the real meeting of those who walk along common paths of struggle against the state, prison and capital.

This is the time for constant and untiring action to get the comrade out of such a vindictive regime of confinement where they want to bury him for years. A war cry for total liberation! An unyielding insistence until the destruction of the last bastion of prison society. A complicit embrace to Juan Sorroche, to Anna Beniamino and Ivan Alocco from the south of the world where they accompany us in our daily struggles and resistances!!! To Alfredo all the Newen and the immemorial strength of those who have given their lives in the struggle for freedom in every rebel territory of this rotten world that we want to see fall. Let’s get Alfredo Cospito out of isolation! Against the 41bis and all regimes of confinement, punishment and isolation!!! Death to the state and long live anarchy!!! Amulepe taiñ weichan!!! As long as misery exists, there will be rebellion!
