Free Roccia Now

On the evening of 15 May 1996, at 9:30pm, more than 30 carabienieri with
sniffer dogs and other paraphenalia, and guns in plain sight, blockaded all
points of access to the Cayenna social centre, strip searched all those
within and then searched the premises from top to bottom for 4 hours.

They confiscated around 150g of hashish found in a bag under a counter in
the Retrobar.

At the end of the operation they arrested 2 comrades - one, Roccia, at the
social centre, the other at his home. The Camouflage cooperative was also
charged under Article 79 of law DPR 309/0 and the social centre shut down
for 30 days.

These are really 'stupefying' facts!

We of Cayenna want to emphasise that we have given life to a physical and
creative space where people can do more than just smoke a joint freely.
Cayenna, like hundreds of other social centres throughout Italy, is a place
for desires and projects, a place deliberately and consciously removed form
the logic of life as market and competition. A laboratory of
self-valorisation of all forms of life that free zones for self-management,
self-production. One of the few spaces in our region wherein relational
affects are an indispensable value.

The fact that some subjectivities distribute cannabis derivatives within
the social centres is accepted as a socially useful service that we would
perform ourselves directly were we not impeded by an absurd legislative
repression. An infamous piece of legislation, conceived with quite
different objectives in mind to those that are publicly declared, that
forces many of us to practice "illegal" forms of distributing cannabis
derivatives.

We call upon all the social centres to express solidarity with the comrades
arrested. We call upon everyone to reiterate and relaunch a radical
anti-prohibitionist campaign.

- NEVER AGAIN POLICE AGAINST DRUG CONSUMERS
- NEVER AGAIN REPRESSION OF THE SELF-PRODUCTION OF CANNABIS
- NEVER AGAIN PRISON FOR THOSE WHO REFUSE THE STATE-MAFIA NARCOTRAFFICKING
OF PSYCHO-ACTIVE SUBSTANCES
