France: Update about the situation of Vincenzo (August 14, 2019) [en]

Following the arrest of the anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi, which took place in France on August 8, 2019, thanks to the joint work of the Italian and French police, this morning (August 14) at 11.00 am, at the Court of Appeal of Rennes, was held a hearing about the extradition to Italy. According to the fleshless information that has been possible to learn so far, during the hearing the judges decided nothing about extradition, as they would lack useful “different elements”. A further hearing has been set for August 23rd. So in that time he would presumably remain imprisoned at Rennes prison. To send mail or telegrams to people held in French prisons it would be necessary to have the specific identification code (numero d’écrou) that each prison assigns to the individual inmate to identify him and that, as regards the correspondence, should be indicated in the address in a precise manner. Unfortunately, by contacting the prison the answer is that this number cannot be provided (although in the other situations exactly the opposite has happened), but that it’s sufficient to indicate name and surname and the letters should still arrive. You can try. Below is the address:


Italy: Updates about Natascia from Piacenza prison (August 2019) [en]

Natascia is in section AS3 [“High Surveillance 3”], therefore with women defendants or suspects for crimes related to organized crime. They have almost always open cells, but in the section there is little or nothing, the library – for example – sucks. Almost all the personal letters arrive, while around twenty letters were kept by the guards, which they considered “political”. Only the first of these has been unlocked.

WE REMEMBER THE ADDRESSES TO WRITE TO NATASCIA, ROBERT AND BEPPE [arrested for “Prometeo” repressive operation at May 21st, 2019]:


France: Vincenzo arrested, convicted for the G8 in Genoa in 2001 (08/08/2019) [en]

The anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi was arrested on Thursday, August 8, 2019 in France. The arrest was carried out by the French police and (as reported by the regime media) was made possible by the contribution of the agents of the “Service for the fight against extremism and internal terrorism” and of the Antiterrorism section of the DIGOS of Milan, which through “a close investigative connection” with the French police were able to identify the comrade. Against him two European arrest warrants had been issued by the prosecutors of Milan and Genoa.


Italy: Natascia, arrested for the “Prometeo” operation, was transferred to the prison of Piacenza [en]

We learn of the transfer, which took place on July 30th, of the anarchist Natascia Savio from the prison of L’Aquila to that of Piacenza. Natascia was arrested on May 21st 2019 in the context of the repressive operation “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”) along with two other comrades, Giuseppe and Robert. The last two have also recently been transferred further, respectively to the prisons of Bancali (Sassari, in Sardinia) and Rossano Calabro (province of Cosenza).

We recall that the main accusation against the comrades is of “attack with the purpose of terrorism or subversion”, as they are held responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the public prosecutors Rinaudo (prosecutor in several trials against the antagonist movement and the anarchists) and Sparagna (prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta Manent” operation) and Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Penitentiary Administration”) in Rome. They are not accused of any “associative” crime (such as articles 270 or 270bis, penal code).


Italy: Update on the Health Situation of Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Alfredo Cospito [en]

24.07.19: Comrade Alfredo Cospito started feeling unwell 15 days ago, right after his hunger strike ended. He immediately insisted on a CT scan. In fact, as soon as the CT scan was carried out, he was urgently transferred to the hospital where he was operated on. The operation went for 5 hours as they had to remove his gallbladder, which had ruptured. All this because the doctors had been saying for months that it was necessary to operate, but the prison kept postponing, trying to solve the problem with tablets, which in reality did not solve anything. The situation got worse with the hunger strike.


Italy: Communiqué of Alfredo from the prison of Ferrara [en]

Ferrara, July 14th, 2019
I give you the tragicomic news that my bloody gall bladder after 5 hours of operation has left us (8 July) due to a hunger strike. Excuse me but I’m still not able to respond decently to your many letters. But count on my answers. The only positive thing is that I lost 21 kg. Keep on writing to me.
Sure that the struggle in solidarity with the comrades proceeds ever more effectively.

[Note: Alfredo refers to the hunger strike against the restrictions and conditions in the AS2 section of L’Aquila prison undertaken in Italy by some imprisones anarchists, from May 29th until the end of June].

Italy: Kidnapping and attempted deportation of anarchist Divine Umoru + Saturday, July 20th: Protest at the CPR of Bari [en]

Transfers, violence and deportations:

Yesterday [15 July 2019] we received the news of the deportation, now in progress, of Divine Umoru, made possible by an order issued directly by Salvini, despite having the documents in order. He is an anarchist comrade who has undergone several trials, we know him and we want to be in solidarity.

For this reason, although we have made it impossible to trace their movements, we will be at Malpensa at 17.30 (Tuesday 16th) at the terminal 1 departures entrance 16. Run and come all!


Italy: Sentencing requests at the trial for the “Panico” operation [en]

On July 16, 2019, the prosecutors Focardi and Giunti exposed requests for conviction against 39 defendants in the trial for the “Panico” operation against the Florentine anarchists. The trial is the result of the union of several proceedings, including the one linked to the “Panico” repressive operation of January 31st, 2017 (which involved three house arrest, some restrictions and searches with the main accusation of “criminal association”) and the repressive operation of August 3rd, 2017, which involved eight arrests, searches and the eviction of La Riottosa occupation, in Florence, with accusations (for the eight anarchists arrested) of having carried out an explosive attack against “Il Bargello” bookstore (Florence, January 1st, 2017), a space linked to fascists and the fascist party “Casapound”, an action during which a policeman was seriously injured and lost part of a hand and an eye, and an arson attack on a police station in the neighborhood of Rovezzano (Florence, April 21st, 2016).

Florence [Italy]: Last hearings of the trial for the “Panico” operation [en]

The hearings from 15 to 18 July, 2019, are confirmed, but due to the absence of one of the judges the sentence (scheduled for July 22nd) could slip, by a maximum of one week, apparently.

For Giova, Paska and Ghespe under house arrest, was asked the transport by their own means for the hearings, therefore without an escort. For Paska has also been asked to temporarily move house arrest to a house near Florence.

As regards presences in the courtroom, Paska should therefore be present at all hearings. Giova and Ghespe will certainly not come to the hearing on the 15th, but for the following ones they still haven’t decided.


Italy: Updates about the “Prometeo” repressive operation – Giuseppe was transferred to the prison of Rossano Calabro [en]

On July 8th, 2019, we learn that the anarchist Giuseppe Bruna was transferred from the prison of Alessandria to that of Rossano Calabro. The comrade was arrested on May 21st along with Natascia and Robert for the repressive operation “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”). We remind that recently Robert was also transferred (from Terni to Bancali, in Sardinia), while Natascia remains imprisoned in L’Aquila. Then the addresses become the following:

Giuseppe Bruna
C. R. di Rossano Calabro
Contrada Ciminata, snc
87064 Corigliano-Rossano (CS)
Italia [Italy]


Italy: Transfer of Robert, arrested for the “Prometeo” operation [en]

On July 6th, 2019, we learn of Robert’s transfer from the prison of Terni to that of Bancali, in Sardinia. So the new address is the following:

Robert Firozpoor
C. C. di Sassari – Bancali
strada provinciale 56, n. 4
Località Bancali
07100 Sassari
Italia [Italy]

We remember that Natascia, Giuseppe and Robert were arrested on May 21st, 2019, during a repressive operation called “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”), carried out by the carabinieri of the ROS and which involved some searches. The main accusation is of “attack with terrorist or subversive purposes”, since they are considered responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the p. m. Rinaudo (prosecutor in several trials against the antagonist movement and the anarchists) and Sparagna (prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta Manent” operation) and Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Prison Administration”) in Rome. They are not accused of any “associative” crime (such as articles 270 or 270bis, c. p.).


Italy: Updates on the anarchists arrested for the “Prometeo” operation (25/06/2019) [en]

After the arrests of 21 May 2019 for therepressive operation “Prometeo”(“Prometheus”), Robert and Beppe were imprisoned in the Opera prison in Milan until June 21st, while Natasha wasimprisoned in France.

In the maximum security prison of Opera, Robert and Beppe spent an entire month in isolation in section 41bis, as there is no AS2 section [“High Surveillance 2”], with only an hour a day of “socializing” by being able to see each other, and the rest of the day with the barrier closed. This “illegal” regime was reported to the judge, PM and guarantor of the detainees, especially since the isolation had not been requested by the judge, but nothing changed for a month.


Italy: Updates on anarchist prisoners [en]

“Prometeo” operation: Natascia was transferred to the prison of L’Aquila and started a hunger strike
The anarchist comrade Natascia Savio, arrested on May 21, 2019, for the “Prometeto” (“Prometheus”) operation (together with Giuseppe and Robert), was transferred from the Rebibbia women’s prison in Rome to the prison of L’Aquila, precisely in the same section (AS2, “High Surveillance 2”) where are imprisoned Anna Beniamino and Silvia Ruggeri, on a hunger strike since May 29th. Also in June she was transferred from the prison of Gradignan, near Bordeaux (in France), to Rome Rebibbia, where she was imprisoned for a few days and where she began a hunger strike in solidarity with Anna and Silvia. On 20 June it became known that she was transferred to L’Aquila, so the comrade is actually imprisoned under the same conditions and restrictions imposed on Anna and Silvia. Solidarity with Anna, Silvia, Alfredo, Marco and Natascia on hunger strike!


Italy: “Prometeo” operation — Natasha was transferred to the Rebibbia prison in Rome [en]

Natascia was transferred from the prison in Gradignan, near Bordeaux (France), to the Rebibbia women’s prison in Rome. Here the address:
Natascia Savio
Casa Circondariale di Roma Rebibbia femminile
via Bartolo Longo 92
00156 Roma

Here the addresses of the other arrested comrades:

Italia: Comunicato e sciopero della fame di Leonardo in solidarietà ad Anna e Silvia [en]

Dal carcere di Lucca.
A fianco di Anna e Silvia, che dalla sezione AS2 del carcere dell’Aquila intraprendono uno sciopero della fame per protestare contro le condizioni carcerarie. La mia solidarietà, al di là di un caloroso abbraccio che passa oltre ben due finestre barrate, la esprimo con tre giorni di sciopero della fame a partire dal 2 giugno.
Quando il corpo pulsa, quando si mette in gioco la propria libertà, quando la galera la si affronta a testa alta, quando gli occhi si iniettano di sangue, quando si sente dentro e fuori, un’immensa appassionata voglia di libertà…
Quando ancora il cuore non si è spento.
Per l’anarchia.


Italy: Declaration of Silvia and Anna on the beginning of the hunger strike in L’Aquila prison [en]

On the morning of May 29, 2019, in the court of Turin was held the first hearing in the trial against some anarchists for the occupation of Corso Giulio 45 (Turin). One of the defendants is Silvia, arrested on 7 February in the context of the “Scintilla” repressive operation and the eviction of the Asilo Occupato in Turin. The comrade via videoconference (which prevents her from being present at the hearings) read a text written by her and Anna announcing the beginning of a hunger strike against the conditions and restrictions imposed in the AS2 section of the prison of L’Aquila (prison conditions comparable to those of detention under the 41bis regime, present right in the prison where they are locked up). We remind that the anarchist comrade Anna Beniamino is imprisoned since 6 September 2016 for the “Scripta manent” operation, for which on 24 April was issued the sentence in the trial of first instance. She was sentenced to 17 years and four other comrades sentenced between 5 and 20 years of prison.
Revolutionary solidarity with the comrades on hunger strike and with all the imprisoned anarchists!


Italy: “Renata” operation — Stecco transferred to the prison of Ferrara [en]

We inform that anarchist comrade Luca Dolce, known as Stecco, was transferred from the prison of Tolmezzo (in the province of Udine) to the prison of Ferrara, precisely in the AS2 section (“High Surveillance 2”) where are imprisoned the anarchist comrades recently sentenced in the first instance trial for the “Scripta manent” operation. Stecco has been in prison since February 19, 2019, arrested along with seven other anarchists in the context of the repressive operation called “Renata”.

On May 9, five anarchists imprisoned for this repressive operation were transferred to house arrest: Agnese (who had recently been transferred to the new AS2 section in the prison of L’Aquila), Giulio, Roberto (who were detained in Tolmezzo), Andrea and Nicola (who were detained in Ferrara). Only comrade Luca Dolce (known as “Stecco”) remained in prison due to other final sentences. While another comrade, Sasha, who was also arrested on 19 February and immediately placed under house arrest, had this last “precautionary measure” transformed into an obligation to stay and return home from 9.00 pm to 7.00 am.


Italy: Three days against the techno-sciences – 26-27-28 JULY 2019 “Capo di Ponte Theme Park” in Prada – Capo di Ponte (BS) [en]


13.00 lunch

14.30 Presentation of the meeting

15.00 In the temple of Janus. About the relationship between technology, exploitation and racism
For the Italics Janus had two faces: a bearded one depicting the sun and a beardless one depicting the moon. For the Romans, the sun and the moon soon became peace and war. The temple of Janus, in the Roman Forum, was closed in time of peace and open in time of war. Today the door of that temple is always closed because of the war and the unnamed of the present time. Embodied in the technological apparatus and its silent injunctions, war is the planetary movement of digital democracy. Racism is its “moment of truth”, in that it explicitly affirms what its machines have never stopped doing to the colonial peoples. The algorithm command prepares the chief’s orders. The abstraction from the body, from the earth, from nature produces the comfortable bulwark of national belonging and the desire to lynch the different as a backlash. What was experienced in the colonies goes back.

Gioacchino Somma
Miserable wretches! [en]

Everything was ready from the morning: journalists and live TV on the national channel…

A miserable judge in Turin, Roberto Sparagna, left no stone unturned in putting pressure on a gang of equally miserable individuals (jury led by judge Alessandra Salvadori).

A poor madman in search of fame after having moved from the anti-mafia prosecution to the terrorism one, he succeeded where other miserable colleagues of his had failed for decades: subversive association for the purposes of terrorism.


Italy: Operation Scripta Manent Sentences (24/04/2019) [en]

A first instance sentence was issued in the trial begun in June 2017 regarding the “Scripta manent” operation, which on September 6, 2016 led to the arrest of five anarchist comrades and the notification of pre-trial detention to two other imprisoned anarchist comrades (Alfredo and Nicola). The requests of condemnation proposed by the public prosecutor R. Sparagna for 22 accused anarchist comrades exceeded 200 years.

On April 24th sentences have been issued, as reported in Croce Nera Anarchica website:


Italy: Davide Delogu transferred from Augusta to Rossano Calabro prison [en]

The anarchist sardinian comrade Davide Delogu was transferred from the Augusta prison (province of Syracuse, in Sicily) to that of Rossano Calabro (province of Cosenza, in Calabria). The address to which letters, telegrams, books, etc., can be sent is as follows:

Davide Delogu
c/o Casa di Reclusione di Rossano Calabro
Strada Statale 106 Jonica n. 32
87067 Corigliano-Rossano (Cosenza)
Italia (Italy)

From 11.03.2019 and during the month of March the comrade was on a hunger strike because the new director of the Augusta prison (Angela Lantieri) who had just arrived had immediately revoked the meeting permit that Davide makes with a Sardinian comrade (the only meeting he can currently do). He had also accompanied the strike with missed returns in the cell varying between 30 and 60 minutes and daily keystrokes in the cell.


Capo di Ponte (BS) [Italy]: Three Day Against The Techno-Sciences 26-27-28 July 2019 [en]

The program will come soon

Today more than ever, we feel the necessity to organize a meeting involving comrades from different countries already engaged in a critique and in opposition to developments of techno-sciences. An important moment to exchange and share analyses, reflections and experiences, to reinforce criticism and refine one’s thinking even more in confrontation with other groups and individualities that have been pursuing for a long time paths of opposition to the developments of techno-sciences.


Italy: Initiative in solidarity with anarchists from Russia to Italy (29/03/2019) [en]

FRIDAY 29 MARCH in IMOLA(BO)- Italy meeting at 4 PM at the city center, under the clock tower (for those who come by train, just exit to the front of the station and go straigh on until you cross the clock), from there we will move to a nearby place for a chat about state repression against anarchists. From Italy to Russia the “internal enemy” is represented by all those who choose to oppose this world of control in an increasingly perfected police state.



Italy: Arrests and searches following a repressive operation against the anarchists in Trentino (19/02/2019) [en]

During the night and the morning of Tuesday, February 19, 2019, seven anarchists were arrested in various places in Trentino (Italy): Agnese, Giulio, Nico, Poza, Rupert, Sasha, Stecco. One person (Sasha) was placed under house arrest while all the others were imprisoned in various prisons. The main accusations are “subversive association for the purpose of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order” (article 270bis of the penal code) and “terrorist attack” (article 280 of the penal code), with reference to some direct actions that took place in Trentino during the last few years. Other offenses of which they are accused are: “interruption of public service”, “damage”, “sabotage of telematic devices”, “fire” and “transport of exploding material”. At the same time 50 searches were carried out, with about 150 policemen and carabinieri mobilized in the repressive operation (which was given the name “operation Renata”, apparently a name taken from the nickname given to a car used by some comrades). The investigations were conducted by Digos (state police) and ROS (carabinieri). On the same day of the arrests, a press conference took place in Rome, organized by anti-terrorism. It is clear the attempt to hit the anarchist presence in Trentino, pigeonholing and describing the relations between anarchist comrades within a phantom “subversive association” (with leaders, gregari, cashiers, responsible, “covi”, etc.), an accusation trying to distribute as many years as possible in prison.
