The shoadows of those tragic days in Genoa once more envelop us,
imprisoning and depriving of their liberty people, men and
women, who were amongst the 300,000 demonstrating against the G8
in Genoa on 20-21 July 2001.

State repression evidently did not come to an end in the streets
of Genoa, but still continues in the guise of acusations of
subversive association and creating public disorder.

Yesterday - released in Cosenza, today - imprisoned in Genoa,
released today, persecuted tomorrow ... but it all leads back to
those July days in 2001 in Genoa. The movement is then forced to
chase its recent past in order to defend itslf, in order to
re-build, to denounce the death of Giuliani as an execution and
not legitimate self-defence, to once again demand the liberty to
organize and demonstrate against this climate of segregation and
of the smothering of civil rights, be it in Naples, Genoa or
Cosenza, by the repressive apparatus of the State.

But the huge demonstration in Florence on 9th November and the
social and labour struggles from the north to the south
represent acts of real political autonomy. They are a determined
statement on the part of those directly involved and an
indication that their ideas are spreading, raising political
questions of equality and liberty. Questions to which the state
and capitalism have no other answers than to intensify the
exploitation and repression, to fire workers and reduce social
struggles to a question of public order.

The intimidatory reaction of the State is therefore aimed at
spreading fear and insecurity in order to dampen the fires of
struggle in the South. It is attempting to sow the seeds of the
terror of impending repression amongst those who are protesting
against Budget cuts and redundancies at Fiat. It is seeking to
make use of "strange" decisions of the courts as an element of
exchange and to pressurize for bipartisan judicial reform.

AGAINST THE REPRESSION

AGAINST THE CRIMINALIZATION OF THE MOVEMENT

SPREAD THE SOCIAL AND LABOUR STRUGGLE

MOBILIZE IN SOLIDARITY WITH THOSE ARRESTED

DROP ALL CHARGES

DEMAND THE RELEASE AND FREEDOM OF ALL
