The correct spelling of the name of one of the four anarchists above,
jailed in North Italy, is "Christos Stratigopoulos", and he is Greek.
The four are in prison because of a roberry THEY DID, two or two and a
half year ago! But the Italian State is trying to accuse them for
actions they didn't commit, like the two roberries above... The
intentions of Italian State are obvious!
