On 25th November 2004 at Rome's Civil Court, the trial will commence in the
case brought by Trenitalia [Italian train company] against Fabrizio Acanfora, a
syndicalist and member of the Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici [Federation
of Anarchist Communists - FdCA]. Having refused arbitration at the Provincial
Labour Office, the company brought a case against Fabrizio in order to obtain
recognition of the legitimacy of its disciplinary measures handed down to
Fabrizio (10 days' suspension from work) in August 2003 by the regional
department of Trenitalia. Fabrizio, who is a train conductor from Genoa, had
sent a letter to a national newspaper, "Il Secolo XIX", in which he
demonstrated his solidarity both with the public who are forced to put up with
chronicly bad services and with his colleagues who work on the trains who for
months have had to put up with insults in the newspapers and at work and who
find no support whatsoever forthcoming from the train company.

Fabrizio, who at the time of the events was an elected union representative,
was disciplined by the train company for having exercised his constitutionally
guaranteed freedom of expression and for carrying out his duty as a workers'

We, the undersigned workers, citizens and public service users, agree with the
contents of the letter sent on 16th July 2003. We too fight for an efficient
public transport system and we fully support Fabrizio in his fight.

On 25th November we will all be in the courtroom. We will demonstrate that we
have not forgotten and that we will not allow ourselves be intimidated. We will
show that by punishing one, they hit a hundred. And a hundred will reply!
