Genoa 2001 - Genoa 2007:

There is no such thing as powers for the good

The Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici will be participating in the demonstration to be held in Genoa on 17th November, using the mobilization to denounce and protest against the latest reactionary decisions by the Italian government regarding the parliamentary inquest on the tragic events of Genoa 2001.

Prosecutors in the trial of 25 people for "devastation and pillage" have demanded a total of 225 years in prison and millions of euro in compensation for their "moral complicity" in the events of 2001. Some of those on trial were also injured by the State forces either at the Diaz school or at the Bolzaneto police station. To make matters worse, it has been decided that demonstrators will not be compensated for their injuries received at the hands of the police.

Instead, the various police chiefs involved in those days have all been promoted and there no inquiry has led to these "protectors of law and order" being held responsible.

It must be clear to everyone now that the institutions continue to operate with the sole intent of demonizing the movement, always placing the emphasis on the rioting in Genoa and ignoring the many serious episodes of physical and psychological violence against so many unarmed demonstrators, not to mention the obscure manoeuvres in the corridors of power, which at the time were in the hands of a fascist power that was perfectly aware it was being unconditionally protected and supported.

The only thing they want to talk about today (and at the time) are the ones who were allowed to run riot in the streets, not the huge movement, including anarchists, who peacefully marched through the streets of Genoa with their flags and banners and their legitimate demands and who, while the nebulous "black bloc" set calmly about their methodical devastation, found themselves up against ranks of police intent on armed repression against the bare hands of thousands of women and men, old and young, repression which only became even worse when people started to arrive in Genoa after news of Carlo Giuliani's death emerged.

We did not let them forget the shameful things that happened then and we will not let them forget them now.

That movement now demands the truth on the political responsibility of those who were in control during those days.

It demands admission of the disgraceful violence that was unleashed by the police forces and their chains of command.

It demands justice for the repression and abuse suffered by the city and by all those people who were dealt such unspeakable violence.

As part of the international mobilization against the G8 in 2001, as participants in the demonstrations in Genoa at that time, we anarchist communists, while not expecting any sort of justice from State institutions, fully recognize ourselves as being part of the movement that will take to the streets today to demand the truth, that will not forget those days, that will remember that armed violence belongs to the State and is always directed against the weak.

The Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici views events at a trial under way in Terni with great concern, a trial during which the prosecutor is said to have defined the "Informal Anarchist Federation" as the armed wing of the Italian Anarchist Federation (FAI).

textRe-conquering the lost fatherland 18:15 Fri 15 Aug by Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici 0 comments

Bari has been chosen as a test run for Minister La Russa's new security operation, which went into effect on 4th August when 3,000 soldiers went into action across the country. This is a de facto militarization of the territory, officially beginning in Bari at 7.00 am in the presence of Vice-minister Mantovano and continuing then to Rome, Turin, Milan, Naples, Bologna, Verona, Padua, Palermo, Gorizia and Calabria.

textThe intimidation is clear: Watch out, you are all on parole, you are all subversives! 19:36 Fri 01 Feb by Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici 0 comments

From Turin to Genoa, from Florence to Cosenza, the judicial vendetta goes on against those who dared, and still dare, to oppose the warmongering and economic repression of the States and Capitalism and the new rise in neo-fascism and racism in our towns and cities.
We will be in Cosenza on 2nd February, not just to show our solidarity but also because we believe that the widest possible participation is the best possible response to the reactionary intimidation and the criminalization of dissent.

textFrom "hunt the Southerner" to "hunt the Romanian": control, exploitation and gender violence 20:17 Thu 08 Nov by Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici 0 comments

A woman is assaulted by a Romanian and is lying on death's door. The response? A government decree examining the possibility of expelling all Romanians from the country; the shacks where various groups of individuals struggle to survive are bulldozed; vigilante groups roam the streets attacking foreigners.

The heavy climate of anti-anarchist provocation which is bearing down on Italy is also making itself felt in Sicily. Two containers full of petrol were left outside the entrance of the Caltanissetta Red Cross, with some anti-CPT grafitti on the wall nearby accompanied by a circled A.

textJack-in-the-box: Italy's anarchist phantoms Nov 24 by Alternativa Libertaria 6 comments

From the press, we learn of admissions of responsibility, of plots as easy to dismantle as lego, of the fault being anarchists' (all the TV news shows) or anarcho-insurrectionalists (RAI 3 news), of "organizations" responsible for the various "Jack-in-the-box" attacks - those little surprise packages, letter bombs or suchlike.

textRepression in Italy Sep 06 by Luta Social 0 comments

In Italy, the repression against dissidents and anarchists has never stopped - it is simply being more or less intense according to the circumstances and/or the political and propaganda needs of the various governments.
An Italian comrade reflects on the current situation of anarchists in Italy.
