(en) Italy: FAI Turin statement - Solidarity with the Barocchio Squat and the 2 comrades stabbed in Turin [it]

Date Mon, 13 Jun 2005 12:00:46 +0300

Last night's attack, in perfect "squadrista" style, at the Barocchio Squat is a
sign of the worsening situation in the city. And this time someone nearly died.
Two squatters stabbed and injured - one seriously - is a clear indication of
the fascists desire to strike and kill.
Their protection by the institutions, the distinct lack of will of the city's
leftist government to denounce the rise of fascist violence all goes to make
the pretorian guard of the political and social right more arrogant and dangerous.
Turin is going through a delicate period, caught between the ever-worsening
crisis in FIAT and the intention at any cost to entrust the futureof the city
to the Olympic Games and large public works such as the TAV (high-speed train).

Despite the opposition of a majority of the population of the Gronda Ovest and
the Val Susa, evidenced by the huge public demonstration on 4th June, Bresso
(1) and his pink-and-green technocrat cronies fully intend to plough ahead with
the plans. The bulldozers are due to start their devastation on 29th May. At
the moment, both in Valle and in the city, there is no shortage of initiatives:
the train of death must not be allowed to pass and the people are decided in
their intent to block it before it begins.

So, while everyone is busy with the popular struggle against the TAV, with
solidarity to the migrants in the CPT (2) revolts and with denouncing the
State's murderous racism, the bosses' assault troops rear their ugly heads
right on schedule.

Those materially responsible for the knife attack on the residents of the
Barocchio Squat are merely the direct or indirect foot soldiers of those who
wish to smother social struggle, forcing everyone onto the defensive.

We must halt them in their plans, which are all too clear.

The fascists will not stop our social, anti-racist and anti-militarist work. We
must destroy the well from which the fascist barbarians drink!

Let's concentrate our anti-fascist struggle against the "squadristi" and those
who protect them.

Rafforziamo la lotta antifascista contro gli squadristi e chi li protegge.
