At the moment, Indymedia Italy site can be accessed, no matter the attack (DDOS) that's targetting the server since may 1st, no matter the press agencies claiming the site has already been seized. Again. Few months have passed since FBI seized the hard disks of the server that hosted IMC Italy, and on the same day that the high court declared that crimes against catholic religion are punishable no more than crimes against other religions are, a zealous public prosecutor from Rome, Salvatore Vitello, charges Indymedia Italy with the crimes of offence to catholic religion and personal offences to the Pope, asking for the shutdown of the IMC.
A fake picture of the pope with a nazist uniform. The long clerical-national wave triggered by the death of Johannes Paulus II and the election of Benedictus XVI, was supposed to make everybody think the same way.
Now we'll have to explain again to enslaved judges the subversive concept of Open Publishing and that Indymedia Italia doesn't make any kind of censorship.
