Authorities target Anarchist in Italy -- News update from Genoa, 19.09.2001

Yesterday morning (Tuesday, 18th September) there were about 100 raids all
over Italy, and 60 people taking in for questioning by police.
Under the orders of the State Prosecutor for Milan, Stephano D´Amburoso,
there were police raids in twenty Italian cities. The State Prosecutor is
conducting an investigation against the movement "Solidarieta
Internazionale" which had actively supported the prisoners resistance in
Spain against the introductions Control Units (F.I.E.S.) as well as in
Greece. The movement is accused of involvement in the bombings of Church of
Sant´Ambrogio (28.06.00), the Cathedral of Milan (18.12.00) and the
Carabinieri Station [National Police] (26.10.99), all of which are in Milan,
Italy.
Undercover cops, Digos (Political Police), Celere (Riot Police/Swat Team)
stormed a squat, Villa Occupata, in Milan. The ground floor was ruined and
files and computer equipment were confiscated. 12 people were taken in for
questioning.
In Pisa, at 7am a private apartment and later the office of an ecological
group were raided. Files, particularly those relating to the support of
prisoners in Spain, as well as the computer hard drives were confiscated.
In Modena, police raided two squats, La Scintilla and La Rivalsa, and
evicted all the occupants of the La Rivalsa squat. Some people were taken to
the police station for questioning.
Similar coordinated raids in Torino, Padova, Trieste, Aosta, Nuoro,
Cagliari, Grosseto, Cuneo, Firenze, Catania, Orvieto, Venezia, Mestre,
Vittorio Veneto, Sacile and Mondovi.
To the best of our knowledge, all those taken in for questioning were
released by yesterday evening. 17 persons will continue to be investigated
under Paragraph 270bis. (Subversive Association and Subversive
Organizations, part of a very severe `Anti-Terror´ law)
All those targeted yesterday were Anarchists. As this is taking place after
the g8 Summit in Genoa and before the NATO Summit in Naples it is clear that
these actions were motivated by an attempt to surpress the organizing and
not only by the previous bombings sited by the State Prosecutor.

Pinelli Social Center in Genoa and Memorial to Carlo Guliani targeted by
fascist fire bombs

In the early morning hours on Sunday (16.09.01) two firebombs were thrown at
the Pinelli Social Center (Anarchist). No one was inside the center at the
time, however the interior was gutted and everything inside, including
computer equipment was destroyed. The following night, the memorial in
Piazza Alimonda to Carlo Guiliani (murdered by police during g8 Summit in
July) was destroyed by another fire bomb. These attacks are believed to be
the work of security services, either directly or through the encouragement
of local skinheads.

Repression against Migrants in Genoa

Yesterday evening, 74 people, mostly North Africans, were deported as
`threats to society´. This is part of a broader campaign of State
Repression.

One serious legal charge dropped against protestor at g8 Summit in Genoa

The second protestor identified from photos around Carlo Guliani´s murder in
Piazza Alimonda, Genoa, 23 year old Eurialio, who had been accused of being
an accessory to attempted murder of a policeman, had his charges reduced to
resisting a policeman.
