Italy – ”Operation Prometeo”: prosecutors demand 17 to 18 years and 4 months for Nat, Beppe and Robert and flyer and poster for a gathering in solidarity and complicity on Monday, October 4, in front of the court in Genoa

via: infernourbanoTranslated by act for freedom now!
On 20th September, at the court of the assizes in Genoa, prosecutor Federico Manotti and the civil party representing Rinaudi were heard at the Prometeo trial. 17 years were demanded for Robert and Natascia and 18 years and 4 months for Beppe, the latter two comrades having been locked up for over two years in Rebibbia and Bologna respectively. The main charge remained that of article 280 (attack with purposes of terrorism) with continuation of the crime and the aggravating circumstance constituted by the offended party in question (two prosecutors and the chief of DAP [Department of Prison Administration]). The lethal element was excluded from the demand but article 270 sexies remained for [the charge] of having acted with purposes of terrorism.
The civil party didn’t submit any demand for compensation, maintaining that “17 years are sufficient and there is no desire to be overzealous” (sic!).

Cagliari, Sardinia – Communique on the trial for “operation Lince”

The second part of the trial for operation Lince has taken place yesterday in Cagliari. Exactly two years after the closure of the investigation, the Judge for Preliminary Hearings accepted prosecutor Guido Pani’s requests relating to 43 of the accused, whereas 2 of them were granted temporary suspension. Despite the inconsistency of the evidence and the tenuousness of the charges, the trial will go ahead with the charge of 270bis for five comrades and with the aggravating circumstance for another twenty, while the others have been charged with minor offences.
In recent years prosecutors all over the Italian State have been amusing themselves notifying crimes of association: more or less eccentric theorems raining down here and there, imposing custodial measures, searches and so on. Luckily in the majority of cases the prosecutors’ eccentric theories have clashed with investigating judges who weren’t inclined to believe their stories, therefore dropped the crimes of association. This was not the case here and we’ll come to terms with it. But a design that wants extreme criminalization for any minimally organized and determined form of dissent is becoming clearer and clearer.

Italy – Mauro Rossetti Busa on hunger strike Translated by act for freedom now!


From his correspondence with a comrade, Mauro says he has been on hunger strike since 3rd September. We report a passage from his letter of 5th September: `

…on 3.9.2021 I began a hunger strike, unfortunately in five days my weight has gone down to 61.4 kg. I am aware of what I could come up against considering my health problems, but if this is worthwhile to obtain being transferred to near Tuscany in order to have visits with my family I’ll carry on – I haven’t seen my family since February 2018. There are no other alternatives in order to avoid hunger strike. I have made many requests and just as many were rejected for security reasons in this or in other prisons – now, enough is enough!
I hug you all

A letter from Mauro Rossetti Busa of April 20 from the prison of Agrigento
…my aspiration has always been based on the ideal of ‘anarchist communism’, especially in the past years where I have always been convinced that our real enemy has always been capitalism, although I must say that capitalism has never been the only enemy but also its dependable state.

Italy – ”Operation Scintilla”: a two-year journey

via: Roundrobin, Translated by act for freedom now!
We have decided to have a say ourselves regarding the declaration made during the appeal trial for operation Scintilla in February 2019. We are doing it now on the internet, over two years later, strong from a long, hard and enriching path. The choice of coming out now on the internet is for various reasons. Certainly it is motivated by a debate that has been going on for several months with comrades close to us on the need to widen the retelling of what happened to those who are locked up in Italian jails as well as those who live beyond national borders. Another reason comes from recently published texts which open a level of discussion that we don’t want to avoid, for the completeness of the narrative. We want to make it clear immediately that we didn’t consider the internet an adequate instrument to deal with what happened because of the narrowness of reasoning that this instrument necessarily imposes. In fact, we don’t see this space as adequate to an in-depth and sincere discussion. Therefore we want to point out the limits that this text inevitably carries with it, as it can’t reflect the complexity of the reasoning and ways we have elaborated since we started to face what we had done.
These lines, however, have two aims:
– to inform those who are not informed in spite of the efforts made so far, by reporting a brief chronology of what happened and adding the declaration at the end
– to give a few suggestions concerning the attempt we made to deal with our mistake
The facts are these:

Lecce, Italy – Humanity is a risk to be run. Against green pass, compulsory vaccination and much more

Humanity is a risk to be run. Against green pass, compulsory vaccination and much more
We have understood for a time that the various questions that present themselves to the world are not disconnected. A world of war presents its bill of misery, dead, people running away. An exploited and polluted planet presents its bill in terms of climate change, devastation of nature, diseases and more people running away. In a world where accumulation of wealth means accumulation of power, the consequence is exclusion and repression of those who can’t access this wealth. These arguments, repeated for centuries, don’t seem to be hitting the point in a period when all the conditions described are becoming quickly and exponentially real. The discourses made around the pandemic, health and the repressive and commodified management that followed, how can they be separated from all the rest?

Genoa, Italy – Updates on special surveillance against a comrade from Genoa

via: Inferno Urbano, Translated by act for freedom now!
In the month of August the result of the appeal against a special surveillance measure against a comrade from Genoa was made known; the request for reviewing the measure, applied with all restrictions, was rejected and it appeared obvious how, even if the charge of terrorism, fundamental pillar of the prosecution theorem, was dropped, the measure remained completely in place again for the same reason, i.e. “adhesion to the anarchist ideology”, “open demonstrations of solidarity with militants of the Informal Anarchist Federation”, “support to imprisoned anarchists”, “inciting direct action”, spreading counter-information material. Still in the month of August, following a proposal by Genoa’s prosecutors, further measures were inflicted on her [the comrade] in addition to surveillance, measures aiming at limiting her freedom even more extensively, striking her in the sphere of her affections, adding new limitations and difficulties to the authorization, granted at last after 7 months’ waiting, to visit her family who live outside the municipality where she has compulsory residence. Moreover her driving licence was confiscated on the absurd pretext that it could be functional to her committing crimes.
The usual refrain continues to propose itself stubbornly and monotonously like a cracked record: the comrade in question is anarchist, therefore dangerous, and this is confirmed by the fact that she is being investigated as an anarchist. Things standing this way, they could go on for ever.

Italy – I could but I don’t want to

I could but I don’t want to
I could convince myself that all nuclear power plants are reliable. But I don’t want to. I still keep Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Fukushima in mind… As the earth becomes contaminated for ever, the usual characters in power tell us that there is nothing else to be done.
I could consider wars as something necessary to defeat enemies that seem invincible. But I don’t want to. All the deaths caused by conflicts between the States have only strengthened their domination on individuals through genocides, massacres and famines.
I could brood over freedom of choice. But I don’t want to. In the world of progress for the rich and regression for the poor, what is called freedom of choice would be more appropriately called freedom to consume as much as possible it seems to me.
