Callout for the mobilisation on the Alpine Austrian-Italian border on 7th May.
The Austrian State has announced that the border of Brenner will be closed again at the beginning of April.
That means: steel fences, barbed wire on the paths, inspections on the highways, on the federal roads, on the trains and on the bicycle tracks, military patrols, containers for the refugees.
Soldiers and barbed wire are shown once again as a “technical solution” to contain and close in the poor ones, whose exodus is the result of wars, environmental devastation, extreme poverty.
Beyond the formal complaints, the Italian authorities conform to this intensifying controls in the South of Brenner.
We are facing an historical passage.
To believe that walls and soldiers are a treatment always reserved to someone else is a tragic illusion: what is fenced, outlawed and oppressed is everyone’s freedom.
From Palestine to Mexico, from Turkey to France and already very close to us, the borders are the symbol of our present moment.
Accepting them makes us inhuman and accomplice.
To try to destroy them is the beginning of a possible freedom.
It’s necessary to choose which side to take.
