13-04-2011 23:31

It's been 7 months now since the "case of arsons" was started in Belarus.
All this time our friends and comrades have been held behind the bars.
Having started with random detentions of activists of radially different political views in September last year, the case is finally coming to an end -
it is being brought to trial.

Portuguese Petition : The relevance of the ratings agencies

13-04-2011 22:07

Last week, a group of Portuguese economists filed a demand for a legal investigation concerning the most recent actions of the three main ratings agencies - in what presumably could be an attempt at manipulating the normal functioning of the financial markets , and an insurgence in the normal functioning of the Portuguese democratic process. An online petition is now available for anyone who is willing to provide support to this action. (in Portuguese)

Against the NATO aggression in Libya! Smash imperialism!

13-04-2011 20:18

The recent aggression towards Libya is strongly supported by many States, especially of the European Union, and by Italy too, which has various interests in this region but officially is a state which repudiates war. This is the fifth war in twenty years in which Italy is involved, and the third in ten years: a bellicose decade.

Italian social centres raided by police, 5 arrests

13-04-2011 19:23

On April 6 more than 300 officers were employed in an “anti-terrorism” operation named ‘Outlaw Operation’ that specially targeted anarcho-insurrectionalist activists. The operation was carried out in 16 different cities including Bologna, where police arrested 5 activists close to the squatted social centre Fuoriluogo and shut down the place. Another person was arrested in the nearby town of Ferrara and released straight after interrogation. 7 other people are under banning orders which restrict their movements and are also being investigated (just for your information, these measures are normally adopted when there is serious circumstantial evidence of guilt AND at least one of the following: risk of escape, risk of acquisition or of the genuineness of the evidence and risk of the offence being repeated).

The operation was part of an enquiry started in 2009  linked in part to anarchist publications and in part to recent attacks against detention centres and corporations like IBM and ENI (multinational oil and gas company). The network was believed to stay in touch through the anarchist zine Invece which when found in houses would be proof of belonging to the network according to the police (by the way, in mainstream media the zine has been described as a “clandestine” magazine…). The police also seized other publications and materials considered “incriminating”.

The 5 arrested are being held in Bologna for now. To send them messages of support: Martino Trevisan / Robert Ferro / Nicusor Roman / Stefania Carolei / Anna Maria Pistolesi  c/o Casa Circondariale, Via del Gomito 2, 40127 Bologna

Protests at ATOS Centres for Disability Benefits Tests

13-04-2011 18:23

p { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; }

Protesters are due to descend on ATOS “asssement centres” where people on disability benefits are tested to decide if their benefits are to be cut off. The UK-wide day of action against benefits cuts on 14th April will see protests in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and at several locations in England.

ATOS are a profit-motivated company and they are being paid half a billion pounds by the government to victimise sick and disabled people,” say Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty, who are organising the protest at ATOS's Edinburgh base at York Place.

7th of May - Notre-Dame-des-Landes (France)

This initiative is the fruit of the connections between Reclaim the Fields, network of European farmers and landless peasants, and squatters in the ZAD. It is a call to all those who fight for the future of agriculture, those who have been giving life to the local resistance for so long, and who will not give in to resignation and all those who today want to join this struggle.
