At around 7pm on 19th January, a repressive operation carried out by Turin police led to the notification of 10 compulsory residence orders to as many comrades, following an initiative that took place in May 2015 outside the premises of Urban, one of the agencies responsible for the gentrification of the city. The charges are private violence, damage and defacement. The prosecution had demanded house arrest for all.
The initiative was in response to the arrest of 4 comrades a few days earlier, on charges of obstructing a police raid against undocumented migrants.
