Salo, or the 3 Days of Genoa

As the United States Navy’s Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Enterprise and her battlegroup held their position off the coast of Italy to ”protect” The G8 Summit, the Italian secret police carried out a brutal attack on the journalists in the offices of IndyMedia Italy in Genoa. This brutal attack has propelled The IndyMedia Revolution into international fame. Read on to find out what the Italian secret police were really after and what this beckons for the future of The IndyMedia Revolution.

What were the Italian secret police after when they so violently attacked the journalists and offices of IndyMedia Italy?



The bloody photographs from the offices of Independent Media Center Italy in Genoa and the horrendous audio recordings of the Italian secret police attack recall scenes from legendary Italian Film Director Pier Paolo Pasolini’s film ”Salo, or the 120 Days of Sodom.”

In ”Salo,” four fascist Italian Generals take 8 of the most beautiful teenage boys and 8 of the most beatuful teeneage girls in Italy to a secluded villa on island named Salo off the northern coast of Italy and subject them to relentless acts of sadistic torture.

Pasolini dared to create a devestating and extremely graphic Freudian interpretation of the fascist period of Italian history and penetrated deep into the minds of his four fascist Italian Generals.

The horrendous attack by the Italian secret police on IMC Italy in Genoa suggests that the fascist period of Italy is not entirely over.

Not insofar as those who dare to speak out on behalf of the opressed and suffering masses of people of our world are concerned.

Pasolini was murdered 2 days after ”Salo” was released in 1975, allegedly by Italy’s secret police.

Has the IMC Movement been murdered by the attack on IMC Italy in Genoa by Italy’s secret police?

No!

The IMC Movement is no longer a movement.

This is the start of The IMC Revolution.

The IMC Revolution has now gained the attention of the mass media all over the world.

The curiousity of the people of the world about this thing called ”IndyMedia” is reaching new heights.

What did IMC Italy have that prompted the Italian secret police to attack them so violently?

THE TRUTH.

We have taken the printing presses and the cable and satellite television systems from the corporate controlled mass media conglomerates who hide the truth about the suffering of the opressed masses of the world.

When the truth about the opression and suffering of the downtrodden masses of the world is brought to bare, all the crude oil of Arabia cannot be removed from the hands of the world’s power elite.

Nobody can buy IndyMedia, nobody can silence IndyMedia, nobody can control what goes onto the printing plates and into the presses in the printing rooms of The IndyMedia Network.

We have at long last manged to liberate the mass media from the famous maxim of A.J. Liebling,

”The freedom of the press belongs to those who own one.”
