We learn with some delay, that the night of December 15 to 16, 2018 on Monte Donato, a hill above Bologna (Italy), huge national and local television relay antennas were sabotaged between midnight and one o’clock in the morning. On the spot, a simple tag has was found, saying, “Turn off the antennas / Wake up the consciences / Solidarity with incarcerated anarchists and those under surveillance “.
The fire went off in three distinct points, a first on the roof of the main structure that contains the “brain” of the antenna, a second in the back of a cabin that contains the transmitting gear, and a third inside the electrical transformer. Cables and relay bridges for radio-TV transmitters were destroyed by the fire. In several parts of Bologna from that very night, but also in Ferrara and other parts of Romagna, reception for various TV channels was cut. The coating of the “radio transmitter interforces”(police, army, etc.) located on the same pylon was also affected by spreading.
