WITH THE PROSECUTED STRUGGLERS OF GENOVA
On 13 July 2012 in Rome, 10 strugglers are being tried for participation in
the clashes which took place in July 2001 in Genova against the G8 summit,
while they are already facing serious sentences of 10 to 15 years of
imprisonment according to a verdict from a previous trial in Genova.
Today, the case of these strugglers is an attempt to strike the revolting
rage against the global dictatorship of the political and financial bosses
who are setting about the looting and destruction of societies and nature in
every corner of the globe. Like it was struck through the murder by the
Italian police of Carlos Juliani, the severe buttery of many demonstrators
by the guards of the global domination in the streets of Genova and during
the bloody invasion in the Diaz school used as lodging and the abuse and
torturing of hundreds of arrestees in the detention centre of Bolgianetto.
Eleven years after the uprising of Genova, the institutional violence of the
courts of civil democracy, through the attempt to criminalize those who
fight and the threat of many years of imprisonment, is part of the answer
which those ‘from above’ have against the revolters’ denial to be trapped
within the boundaries of granted protest. It is the keeping-up of the work
of the severe suppression and the anti-insurrectional propaganda against the
tens of thousands of revolting demonstrators who opposed the power of
international gathering, self-organization, solidarity and social-class
counter-attack against the superior firepower of the Regime and its
supranational formations. And finally it is one more terrorizing message to
the raging social resistances.
It is worth mentioning that at the same time Carlo Juliani’s murderer, Mario
Placanica, has been free of any charge. Also, 25 police officers and leaders
of Security Forces, responsible for the Diaz massacre and recently
unappealably sentenced only to support the unstable mask of democracy of the
Italian authorities, were cleared of the charge of severe bodily harm
because of prescription. While all these years several officers involved in
the murderous police operations of Genova have been rewarded with promotions
for their ‘services’.
Each and every one who was in the streets of the clash held by the forces of
revolt against the Regime in Genova in 2001 could be in the position of the
ones prosecuted and tried on 13 July. It was clash which was a peak moment
of the struggle of the movements against global domination, of the constant
and worldwide confrontations of those ‘from below’ who defend life and
dignity against death promised by the bosses. The prosecuted fighters of
Genova are not alone!
From a corner of the globe, Greece, where the supranational mechanisms of
domination of E.U., I.M.F., and E.C.B. in cooperation with the local
financial and political bosses aggravate the conditions of exploitation and
oppression of those ‘from below’ aiming the total transformation of society
in favour of the international and local elite, we stand by the side of the
prosecuted demonstrators of Genova through our participation in the social
and class struggles which fight the totalitarianism of authority and through
the claim of international solidarity and globalization of resistance.
Solidarity is our weapon!
RESISTANCE – SELF-ORGANIZATION – SOLIDARITY AGAINST GLOBAL DOMINATION OF
STATE AND CAPITAL
CARLO VIVE! WE DON’T FORGET – WE DON’T FORGIVE.
NO PROSECUTION TO THE DEMONSTRATORS OF GENOVA!
