At Natascia’s side

At Natascia’s side – Who struggles is never alone! Solidarity gathering at the prison of Vigevano (Italy, June 13, 2021)

Natascia has been in preventive detention for over two years. In mid-March she was transferred from the High Security 3 section of Piacenza to that of Santa Maria Capua Vetere, in the province of Caserta. In that prison, she is treated in a totally arbitrary manner, partially reminiscent of 41 bis [the harshest and most restrictive prison regime in Italy]: no more than four books are allowed in the cell, CDs are forbidden, two phone calls per month, video interviews are halved, parcels are opened and searched. The punitive nature of this transfer and the further estrangement from her affections and her lawyer is obvious, but Natascia resists with strength and determination.

Anarchist Prisoner Natascia Begins Hunger Strike in Piacenza Prison, Italy

One year, two months and 24 days.

This is the time that has passed since my arrival here, in the Piacenza jail; time filled with emptiness, time wasted trying to tame all of your senses, experimenting with a self-discipline that transforms, like an alchemy, the waste of a life into a formative experience. I have never looked for conflict, even if everyday life here is a constant series of occasions for conflict; when I set my reasons against this system of neutralizing the individual, I tried to do it with “civility,” with forced respect for roles, trying to appropriate them, at least as weapons, these illogical dynamics of which the guards make their banners: rules, rights, duties, protocols. And I’m certainly not saying it to brag about it, on the contrary; nevertheless, in jail, human experience is so distant from any form of good sense, common sense or just plain sense, that we must play, even if we know very well that the dice are rigged.
