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.

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.

Prometeo Operation: updates on Natascia from Rebibbia prison (Italy, July 2021)

Natascia is well and her mood is high, especially since she knows that Anna [anarchist comrade sentenced to 16 years and 6 months in the Scripta Manent trial against the Federazione Anarchica Informale, “Informal Anarchist Federation”] has also arrived and received her greetings, even though Natascia is in a solitary confinement cell far away from the one she is in, which makes it impossible for her to hear directly from Anna. It seems that her transfer to Rebibbia prison in Rome is a permanent relocation, which she does not mind at all: in fact, she said she does not want to ask for other transfers and wants to stay there.

20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani

20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani

It's been 20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani in Genoa. Those days that costed first of all a life, but also a lot of blood for all the others who joined the demonstrations, filled the streets, or the Diaz school. We don't want to just remember the sacrifice of our health or the fear, the traumas, and our rage and disillusionment. Or the year long trials and a total of 110 years in prison imposed against a movement. More important is still keeping on shouting that a different world is possible: a responsible, ecological, fair one.

A text by anarchist Natascia Savio on hunger strike (Italy)

Lucidly aware of the punitive (and preventive?) strategy that the DAP [“Department of Penitentiary Administration”] is putting in place towards me, and at the same time full of anger and disgust, I decided that – if I have no means to concretely interpose myself to their vindictive logics – I have at least the possibility to not let them do it with my collaboration. On hearing the news of my return to S. Maria Capua Vetere, at 6 p.m. on June 16, 2021, I immediately announced the start of an indefinite hunger strike.

From a video call this morning [June 19] with a comrade, Natascia made it known that on June 16, 2021, on her return to Vigevano prison after the preliminary hearing held in Turin for the ‘Scintilla’ trial in which she is a defendant, her temperature was taken and she was immediately put in an isolation cell. When she realised that she was there to be transferred back to S. Maria Capua Vetere prison, she officially declared the start of her hunger strike, throwing the food out of the cell when it was delivered.
