(en) Switzerland: Conference-debate on immigrant detention centres, Lausanne 5-03-06 [it]

Date Tue, 7 Mar 2006 13:56:56 +0100 (CET)

On Sunday 5th March 2006, a conference-debate was held in Lausanne,
Switzerland, on the Italian CPTs (immigrant detention centres) and the
struggle against expulsions. The conference, which saw the participation
of about 30 people, was organized by the Organisation Socialiste
Libertaire, and featured the contributions of two Italian comrades from
Pordenone, Lino Roveredo and Stefano Raspa, both involved in the
struggles against the CPTs. Lino and Stefano provided an outline of
Italian legislation regarding the issue of migration and of the struggles
which have been carried on in Italy against the opening of the CPT in
Gradisca d'Isonzo, struggles which have seen an important influence from
Italian anarchists.

The initiative was prompted by the December institutional summit on
immigration in Switzerland, in an attempt to create a closer network of
struggles and an exchange of experiences between two countries where the
situation seems so different but is basically the same. A way to breathe
life and internationalism into the local struggles of the "sans papiers",
which have been an important element of the struggles in Switzerland for

In conjunction with the initiative, the OSL produced a pamphlet entitled
"Italy: Immigration in a country of emigrants", which is due to be
followed in the coming months by another pamphlet which will examine all
the various aspects of European immigration.

This occasion enabled us to get to know the situation in Italy better, not
only here in Switzerland, but also in France, thanks to the presence of a
French comrade working for a French radio channel.

We hope to be able once again to invite our comrades from the FdCA and
other organizations and indeed for our OSL comrades to visit Italy for
other similar occasions.
