Trento/Rovereto – Operazione Renata

Statement found on: https://www.autistici.org/Macerie/

7 comrades were arrested on 19 February 2019 in Trentino. They are accused of subversive association with the purpose of terrorism (Article 270 bis) and an attack for terrorist purposes or subversions (Article 280).

The short-term nature and the large scale of the repressive operation “Renata” – in addition to the arrests, more than 30 searches have been carried out – do not yet allow us to get an accurate picture of the allegations and the investigation hypothesis, nor do we yet know in which prisons the comrades are locked up.
However, we do not need more time or more precise information to say who the detained comrades and other persons involved in Operation Renata in different ways are.

They are comrades who have been engaged for years, not only in the cities where they live; in the struggles against war and militarism, against borders, raids and the reactionary wind that is cutting off our air more and more. Against prisons and police violence. The comrades were determined not to leave the fascists any space and capacity to act, they were determined to fight against the many projects of environmental destruction, from the high-speed line Verona-Brenner to the wall of Mori. Comrades who on many occasions stood by the side of those fighting against the constant deterioration of working conditions. Comrades, whom we have known and appreciated for many years, for their courage and determination. Precious comrades.

FREEDOM FOR STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO

From Barrikade:

Solidarity demonstration in Genoa on 1.3.19 for the arrested of the operations “Scintilla” in Turin and “Renata” in Trento/Rovereto.

Banner: “Against the rule of fear and against the racism of the state, only the struggle pays off. Freedom for those arrested in Turin and Trentino”.

In moments like these, we stand together. Regardless of whether the comrades are «guilty» or «innocent». The state will always persecute those who want to overthrow it. So let’s take good care of each other and not leave the prisoners alone!

In closing, we would like to quote a part of the accusations that led to the arrest of the comrades in Turin:

“In order to establish contacts within CPR [Immigration and Repatriation Centre], they threw tennis balls with a multilingual brochure and a mobile phone number with which they agreed simultaneous actions within and outside the CPR structure. Then they put matches and everything needed to start a revolt and setting fire in packages of biscuits and other goods.”

May the revolt spread.

Feuer den Gefängnissen.
Feu aux prisons.
Fuoco alle galere.
Fire to the prisons.

Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted Revolutionaries from Greece – Firefund

Solidarity fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants is a structure from Greece, which for the past 9 years has been actively organizing the political, ethical and material support of imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries. Due to the immense amount of money we have to collect and send _each month_ to the imprisoned comrades in order to cover their needs inside the prisons, and thus the tough financial situation we’re facing, we decided to use the firefund platform.

Firefund is an online crowdsourcing platform, run by activists, in order to fund radical causes. You can donate safely either by using credit card or with cryptocurrency (ether). Also if you want you can choose to contribute an amount to the team that administrates the platform.

The link of our campaign is this: https://www.firefund.net/prisonsoli

You can find more info about us and why we choose to use firefund in the link.

The contribution of each and every one who wants to help our cause is ESSENTIAL. While we also believe that it’s rather important to forward this initiative to anyone with whom we may not have contact with. To any comrade/collective who stand with solidarity against oppression.
