PADOVA'S COUNCIL OFFICERS FIRE AT MIGRANTS

An account of a bizarre and disturbing incident, in which Municipal Police
fired handguns at a group of migrants they had pursued in a car chase.

STATEMENT BY RAZZISMO STOP

This locally based antiracist group, which is closely associated with the
social centres, condemns the incident described above, and suggests that
the leftwing city council administration may value 'security' over
solidarity when dealing with 'the problem of immigration'.

CARNEVALE AGAINST RAZZISMO
Venezia 15-24 febbraio 1996

It's the time of Carnevale in Venice again. Two local social centres, CSO
Morion (Venezia) and CSO Rivolta (Marghera), are holding their own
Carnevale against racism on the island of Tronchetto. It will provide a
space for cultural politics 'outside the logic of profit, and under the
sign of self-management'.

COBAS SCUOLA - STRIKE AND NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION SATURDAY 10 FEBRUARY 1996
Roma, p.za della Repubblica ore 10.00

A strike has been organised against what has been called 'the worst
contract since WWII', which the major unions have aleady signed. The strike
action aims to defend and extend pay, staffing levels and conditions. The
demands include blocking proposed staff cuts (another 23,000 teaching jobs
may be axed) and increases to class sizes, as well as defending the jobs of
'temporary' employees (many of whom have been 'temporary' for years).
