Italy: State repression and THOUGHTCRIME !

english translation of the Feature about the arrests of the 4th of december in Italy

The wave of repression in Italy goes on: once again we are breathing the air of a regime.

On the morning of the 4th of December, investigations against 23 people in different cities of Italy were instigated by magistrates. 45 raids in houses also took place. The accusations against those being investigated are: devastation, depredation (crimes that are punished with 8-15 years of detention and are usually not contested to anyone), fabrication and possession of explosives,
possession of illegal weapons, resistance and violence against public officials.

The judge, Elena D'Alosio, ordered preventative arrests for 9 of the 23 under investigation (the other four are under house arrest; six are obliged to remain at home; four to present themselves to the police station). All of these provisions have been ordered now, one year and an half after the relevant events.

All of this is happening the day after the liberation of the activists who were arrested on the 14th of november 2002.
The show goes on, in the days in which the magistrates want to shut the case against Placanica - the carabiniere who is accused of shooting Carlo Giuliani. Once again, everyone is speaking about Genova: the charges against the new arrested are related to the events at Genova and the G8 during the year 2001- events that ended up with the assassination of Carlo Giuliani: justice is equal for
everyone, legitimate defence is not.

'Mental Participation': anti-globalisation protestors arrested for thoughtcrime

Amongst the 23 anti-globalisation protestors questioned and arrested today in Italy there are some who are accused not of acts of violence but of 'mental participation' ('compartecipazione psichica') and 'pscyhological support' [in the Genova actions].

In the paper that orders the arrest, judge Elena Dalosio writes: 'it's clear that not only those who materially took part in the devastation should be prosecuted, but also those facilitated the acts or gave strength to their purpose. These people should be prosecuted even if they didn't conduct any material act.'

'This is a case', the judge writes, 'of very serious resistance, with the aim of disturbing police intervention. The behaviour of those who were on the scene of the riots, together with the most violent ones, gave strength to these people by their very presence. Their acts were not crime in themselves, but aided the criminal intentions of the others with their moral support."
