Lecce, Italy : NOT A DEFENSE…

On 11th September a maxi-trial will begin in Lecce against almost a hundred demonstrators accused of having opposed the realization of the TAP gas pipeline in various ways. A sort of spectacular event with big numbers set up mainly to impress and leave a sign of repression that can also be a warning to others in some way. Besides the place, a bunker courtroom, chosen for the trial, officially for reasons linked to anti-Covid regulations, unofficially to create an atmosphere suitable for the criminalization of the TAP opposition, the obstinate and law-dependent clerks of Order and the Economy do not have much in their hands.

WHO ASPIRES TO FREEDOM CANNOT BE MEASURED

From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

Letter from Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Carla

Salut!

After 536 days on the run, I was arrested on July 26th near Saint-Etienne. I experienced the arrest as the first performance of a scene repeated a thousand times in my head, or rather 536 times? Everything seemed to happen in slow motion: the hooded cops pointing their rifles at me, put me down and ask me the name that I’ve so often been called lately. It felt strange to pronounce it.

Pavia Prison, Italy: Letter from Anarchist Comrade Beppe

I am writing to report a serious situation (yet another!) that I found myself facing between the afternoon of July 3rd and midnight of July 4th! As you will be aware, I have been locked up since about a year in a cell alone in the «protected» section [a section where are held ex-cops, infamous, pedophiles, rapists, etc.] of Pavia’s jail!, I have always refused such placement by putting in place various forms of struggle (hunger strike, air strike, etc.).
