(en) France anarchiste-communiste-Libertaire OCL on The trial of 53 in Turin (Italy No TAV) - statement of accused(fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 11 Mar 2013 10:15:51 +0200

Following the wave of arrests that took place last year and in recent months in the Val Susa, alas announced 2013 as a year to stand trial for the No-TAV. More than 80 people are now deprived of their liberty, either on probation, under house arrest or in prison, and accused of heavy loads. Trial-river for all defendants began in early January. --- On February, the prosecutor, to ward off charges of solidarity they could find in the Susa Valley, decided to transfer the trial in Turin, in the room called the "bunker". This room, located in the prison of Turin Valletta, was first opened for judging armed formations (Red Brigades, Prima Linea, ...) and has been used for major lawsuit against the Mafia in the 90s. Remained unused for a long time, it was re-opened for trials related to strength No-TAV in 2005.

As said a public statement of the accused in the first day of the trial: "The decision to move the trial in this room bunker is in line with the latest crackdown, supported and legitimized by a media campaign aimed at demonizing NO TAV movement, trying to weaken and isolate the struggles across the country. '

For the flow of information, we decided to reproduce a report, translated very quickly, made by the accused after the 14th February.

Further information can be found on the blog of the Laboratory anarchist [*]


Report of the fifth hearing of the "trial" of 53 NO-TAV
Turin, room bunker prison "La Valette", February 14, 2013

As we decided, a small delegation "of defendant (s)" is entered today in the courtroom. From the entrance, some new features are introduced clearly in response to the collective action of the previous hearing. The defendant (s) come before and after the "public." Once inside, it was not immediately sit on the benches, because "the president gave the order to enter only when one is called" . In the courtroom are located thirty riflemen. They want us to enter (e) the time, however we are able to get everyone together when he finished the call (an operation that lasted more than half an hour). Before the start of the meeting, a TV cameraman asked the court to start the call of the accused, and the president agreed.
however, given our refusal was not. There was a very strong presence of lawyers on one side and the other, perhaps because the point of law at stake today was the "constitution of the civil parties." Against us are, in addition to 180 cops companies devastation (primarily RTF), all possible unions and organizations like the police, the carabinieri, customs representation to the Council Presidency same time as the ministries of defense, interior, and economics and finance. All these different bodies require a mountain of money (two million euros). As one lawyer, the trial is likely to ignore the character "criminal" not to assume that the next "civil." When this operation is very chaotic and rough, apparently complete, the court finally concedes two hours to see the civil party and then go further. But it is out of the question.

The defense lawyers have noted that the constitution of the plaintiffs has deficiencies in almost all cases it is not specified who is against whom; papers submitted are photocopies very large, in fact for viewing it takes days, weeks, not a few hours. This request is joined by prosecutors, so that eventually the court decides to end the "civil parties" in the constitution of the next hearing scheduled for March 8 at 9:30 am, still in the "bunker".
seems like confirm the venue for the trial, some lawyers are asking the court to explicitly return the trial in the city of Turin. The President said "not possible" because the Court of Appeal (Turin) ordered, he said, the large rooms (1 and 2) of the Court of Appeal must remain at the disposal of "Eternit trial" until early July. The lawyers then ask a suspension of the proceedings until July, and the president's response is in order "not possible" . While the "public" applauds the intervention of lawyers, the judge said angrily: "The public can not clap" . The court confirmed the continuation of the trial in the "bunker" with the hearing schedule just retouched, it's like this:

in March, the day of the hearing are 8 and 14;â
in April there was no hearing;â
in May 10 and 31;â
7, 14 and 21 June;â
5, 12 and 19 July.â
We then reached the table and press the No TAV rally in Piazza Castello. Finally, we managed to gather a dozen defendant (s). After discussion, the commitment was made to continue to follow the proceedings in the manner already decided on 1 February (8 March, a delegation will be on hand for anyone who wants to join, the appointment is between 9 am and 9 and a half to the "bunker"). In particular, to develop a statement on the establishment of a civil government to socialize our experience ... In the afternoon, a solidarity group has been in prison S. Michele Alexandria to express their solidarity with a message for all prisoners, especially peers and Sergio Alfredo who are on hunger strike since January 29 against a refusal parlor for their companions.

Large demonstration against the Tav Lyon - Turin

Saturday, March 23 - 14h - Piazza d'Armi - Susa

No Tav movement has called a mass demonstration Saturday, March 23 at Susa (14h, Piazza d'Armi) to reaffirm its opposition to Tav Lyon - Turin.

A struggle for 20 years by the people of Val Susa to become a national and international fight against this unnecessary, expensive and environmentally destructive. Despite the repression (trial, imprisonment ...) media disinformation of the mainstream media (La Stampa, La Repubblica, etc.). Resistance and struggle always has the agenda, with many demonstrations, occupations, rallies, meetings, camping, despite the repression carried out by a large police presence on the permanent site.

Come support a population fighting for its future and say no to this fatal Tav Lyon - Turin.
