Solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists in Italy


We repost some more recent translations from Act for Freedom Now relating to the continuing “Scripta Manent” case that has seen a number of comrades imprisoned, with many more being raided and harassed.

Genoa – Words from Carlo, anarchist comrade from Genoa

Greetings to Nicola, Alfredo, Anna, Daniele, Marchetto, Sandrone, Danilo and Valentina

The Solidarity I express towards those arrested is unconditional.

They arrested my brothers and sisters and for this reason my heart is aching.

You’ll never be alone!!!

Dear comrades, I’m close to you!!!

A few words to clarify the situation of the trail where I’m accused on charges of instigation to commit acts of terrorism.

I’m writing these few lines to explain the situation I’m facing concerning proceedings where I’m accused of writing a piece (To those who don’t dissociate themselves) that bitterly attacked those who dissociated themselves from the Action (later claimed by Alfredo and Nicola) that led to Adinolfi’s kneecapping.

After several delays and call-outs to comrades for the participation in the trial (as many will remember), this phantom trial will take place on 28th September.

Obviously the call-outs didn’t please either the prosecutor or the judge, possibly both, and so they decided to hold it behind closed doors; being a summary procedure trial they can decide to do so.

The importance of the comrades’ presence will be missing and above all my presence will be missing as it would be pointless by then.

So I’m sorry I won’t get the chance to see the many people who showed their closeness to me, but there are other reasons to see one another especially after the last arrests.

A libertarian hug to all those who have showed me their solidarity.

Carlo from Genoa

Italy : Two relay antennas set on fire in solidarity with the comrades facing the repressive operation “Scripta Manent”

Two Wind / Ericsson masts burned in Valsavignone

Wow! It’s hot!

On September 13, in the Valsavignone  locality [Pieve Santo Stefano, Toscana; NdT], we burned two Wind / Ericsson relay antennas.

A small response to the recent arrest of our comrades Anna, Vale, Alfredo Nicola, Danilo, Daniele, Divo, Marco and Sandro.

May each blow of the enemy lead to a backlash against it: its face is everywhere … we are too!

May our daily life, with or without repression, be (also) destructive!

May solidarity, even more when repression strikes, be (also) attack!

Italy: Updates on anarchist comrades Anna Beniamino and Alfredo Cospito

These updates have been made known to us directly by the imprisoned comrades Anna Beniamino and Alfredo Cospito:

Concerning Anna, she tells us that she is in isolation (no tv), is prohibited from meeting with other prisoners and saw censorship of her mail, which she says reaches her fairly quickly.

Alfredo, instead, is still in isolation, and not only for his solidarity action with the CCF, which the prison court has not yet ruled on yet, but also for the new investigation “Scripta Manent”. He also informed us that being in isolation he has nothing in the cell such as addresses, even the comrades arrested for Scripta Manent.

I urge comrades to send them the most news, newspapers, and stamps to break the isolation that the nation’s prisons are imposing physically at this time.
