About two months after the July 12 hearing, the court ruled on the proposal to apply special surveillance for seven anarchist comrades from Bologna: six rejections and one acceptance.
Our comrade Guido will be put under surveillance for two years, with an obligation to stay.
A few days before the hearing, the prosecutor Dambruoso had presented an integration so that the court could express its opinion not only on the “qualified dangerousness” for terrorist crimes, but also on the general dangerousness. And it is in fact on the basis of the latter that the request was accepted.

The Israeli army exercises in Sardinia
Fate really seems to be making a mockery of us, but us who? Those who were in Teulada the other day and all those who cannot bear the presence of the military in Sardinia, especially when they are Israeli.
A few weeks after the bombardments of Gaza which the entire world was talking about, against which so many words were said by institutions, the media, parties, citizens, etc., here we are facing the inconsistency of the relationship between our ideas and practices and the falsity of those of many faces.
We have been reading and hearing positions of anger and solidarity in recent weeks against the umpteenth Israeli aggression, against the deaths in Gaza, exactly on the 73rd anniversary of Nakba, inciting Palestinian resistance, invoking internationalism and solidarity between peoples.

On the morning of Monday 18 October, after 4 days of blockades, demonstrations and permanent presidium’s , the police evicted with the use of violence those demonstrating in front of the entrance to the port of Trieste. Thousands of people then moved in demonstration through the streets of the city, up to Piazza Unità, while in the evening the protest intensified. In the area next to the harbor, protesters responded to the massive use of police force by setting up barricades in the streets.
Throughout Italy, in these hours hundreds of demonstrations in solidarity are occupying the main squares of the country.What happened in these hours has no historical precedent neither for the city of Trieste, where protests of this intensity had never taken place in living memory, nor for the movement against the Green Pass.In these lines we will therefore try to give a quick account of how we arrived at the current situation: for reasons of space it is therefore a partial, incomplete account, in which both the complexity of the political dynamics is necessarily reduced, and at the same time some major events are not reported.

THE TRUTH CAN BE UPSETTING BUT IT IS STILL THE TRUTH
In the night between 1st and 2nd September we were stopped in Via Cavour and accused of having put up posters without permission. A simple administrative sanction was not enough for the police, they wanted to pile it on by charging us with “publication or spreading of fake, exaggerated or tendentious news aimed at upsetting public order” (Art. 656 of the penal code). To be accused of spreading fake news precisely by those who defend a system which always lies, manipulating and terrorizing the population with the aim of legitimatizing the most abject political and repressive practices is paradoxical to say the least.
But what did those posters say that was fake?
Is it not true perhaps that society is aiming for the complete digitalization of every aspect of our lives, even the most intimate?

NOTHING WILL BE THE SAME AS BEFORE, FOR YOU
«I’d like to point out that in all the most serious cases the institutions have proved to be compact: magistrates, prefects, police and all the other forces intervened without hesitation making the face of the State even more determined before the delinquent acts that were being carried out». The words which former Minister of Justice Alfonso Bonafede used in parliament to claim the March 2020 massacre in Italian jails can be actually applied to everything that has happened over the past two years.
Millions of people were finally able to observe the true face of the State. First they locked us in our homes for three months, then it was the turn of night curfew, of regional closures, of so-called semi-lockdown (when we could go out of our homes, yes, but only to go to work). Finally we arrived at the so much awaited «restart».
Economic recovery at all costs is certainly not a «return» to freedom and happiness for individuals but a demand for total self-abnegation towards the needs of the market. There is a red thread linking dramatic episodes such as the Mottarone massacre [on 23rd March 2021 a cable car crashed to the ground from the summit of Mottarone, a mountain near Lake Maggiore in northern Italy, killing fourteen passengers], six deaths a day at work, attacks on porters on strike and imposing the green pass on all workers: this red thread is called the restart of the capitalist economy. The only thing they are interested in is that the economy doesn’t stop again, that there are no outbreaks at workplaces. Never must the car stop again, they’d rather cut the brakes. The car must not slow down, it will run over us rather.

Received by email:
To all our comrades internationally, be they in the streets or in the hellholes of the state, we would like to let everyone know that we are still active as a collective & working on new publication projects.
For anyone who would like to be in contact with us, we share our most recent PGP key. New proposals for publications are very much welcome for the expansion of the Black International of Anarchists of Praxis and against the techno prison world.

Gathering outside the CPR [detention centre for migrants] in Turin, 9th October at 4pm
Operation Scintilla was unleashed in Turin on 7th February 2019. That day Asilo, a historic occupation from where various struggles in the neighbourhoods of Aurora and Barriera di Milano had been organized over the years, was evicted. There was a strong determined reaction to the eviction involving hundreds of people who carried out initiatives and actions of solidarity over the days that followed.
