PERMANENT ASSEMBLY AGAINST PRISON AND REPRESSION
On 15th January Digos police delivered a piece of garbage to a comrade in Gorizia, informing him of the start of proceedings for a verbal warning from the Police Chief, an administrative prevention measure.
This kind of expedient is characterized as being administrative, i.e. it largely limits the possibility of any legal defence.
However the aim of this kind of expedient is of a political nature: to identify, isolate and intimidate not only the person subjected to the measure but also and mainly the comrades close to them, so as to dissuade them from continuing to engage politically if they don’t want to come up against personal problems (work, family, etc.)
Really a subtle goal, but we won’t hesitate to respond accordingly: a heavy atmosphere here in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region has started to be felt since the episode of sensitive data leaking, followed by public divulgation of the names of comrades who submitted notification related to public initiatives: from the 24th November march against gender violence in Udine to the 8th December ecologist gathering and the 15th December antiracism gathering again in Udine.
Our message is that this time there’ll be no secrets or personal abjures: the struggle against migrant detention centres and in support of migrants and the struggle against security campaigns in the territory will continue; counter-information initiatives will continue, gatherings in solidarity with prisoners outside the prisons in Friuli Venezia Giulia will continue…
SOLIDARITY WITH THE 5 COMRADES FROM TURIN WHO RISK SPECIAL SURVEILLANCE ORDERS FOLLOWING THEIR SUPPORT OF THE STRUGGLE OF YPG AND YPJ AGAINST ISIS AND IMPERIALISM!
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE COMRADES STRUCK BY REPRESSION!
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE IMPRISONED REVOLUTIONARY COMRADES!
