selforganised hostell at L38squat
since 29th september to 2nd november, to fight the EU SUMMIT
in Rome!

The Laurentino/L38 squat's web site trys to collect about 10 years
of occupation, that is still going on now; antagonist information,
direct actions and life lived in collectivity in a continuous growth
and transformation extremely connected and radicated to this

In the years we have always thought with our own heads without
taking any campaign or mobilisation for granted.
For this reason we often find ourselves in uncomfortable
situations. We are not attracted by the "union-against", or the
unity of our "small-strenght".
We globally think that our strength is everything but small.
We don't have the presumption to know more but we have the
presumption to express who we are, what we feel and what we
want, with no compromise with anyone.

In this place there are no leaders or hierarchies (explicit or not),
and it is obvious that we put in act a daily attention to not fall in
the mechanisms of a McWorld which bombards us in every way
without hesitation.

In our web site we have put, in an orderly way, what we have
chaotically done in the past years.
Who can, those who pass by or live in Rome, are strongly
welcome to visit not only our site but also to come to the outskirts
of Rome to Via Giuliotti 8 to meet us.
You can come and see what we've been able to build, and what
can be built without coming upto compromises with the state or
other forms of power.

The navigation of this site is made easy thanks to the buttons on
the left, which takes you directly to the main parts of the web site.
It was not possible to put buttons for each part of the site, so you
can find many things in the sections like: Infoshop where you can
find the web version of the LaurentinOkkupato's newsletter. In
Worldwide Info you can find deeper analysis of situations and
campaigns in the world, there are also translations and
international info that we have helped to distribute.
Kill a Multi is a section apt to help reveal what's behind the
"smiling face" mask of Multinational corporations such as Shell,
Disney and McDonalds, and show their real face of destruction
and exploitation. Unfortunately all this sections are in italian
language only.

DO IT YUORSELF WEEKS - selforganized hostel

On the 4th of october european heads of state will give place to
Intergovernative Conference wich will approve the definitive
version of the european constitution. In other dates, always in
october, and the other months of the italian EU presidency,
ministers and specialists will meet to formulate the common
strategies of fortress europe.

After they've found a common political economic line, and they've
transformed the workforce market according to the globalization
and neoliberal schemes, they will also give form to the european
political and military structure.

The future EU summits, like the past ones (Barcelona, Seville,
Thessaloniki),have in their agenda crucial and concrete moments
for the realization of common social policies: the real creation of
Fortress Europe.

All the efforts are going towards the expantion of european
borders towards east (wich means opening new markets) and the
clouser (?) of these, with money going for the development of
digital(140 milion euro for VIS and SIS II) and military (250 milion
euro to build "transition camps" outside the borders probably run
by EU's police) control systems.
Freedom of movement and freedom to stay are undercome
economists logics of demand/offert, where the migrant only
represents reserve low cost workforce.
With the terrorism threat and the necessity to take democracy
throught the world (or in other words defending their colonies)
they are building the European Army and the European Defense
In the same way survailliance and controll within the boundries of
fortess europe gain orwellian levels in the name of security. The
results are that we are continously spied, observed by all the
tecnologies they use to defend their treasures and their privileges.

But this doesn't happened only inside the fortress. Similer
meccanisms of controll, repression and gathering arms are the
direct expression of capitalism all over the world, especially in
western countries (or the countries that have just become rich)
who trie and defend their wealth and go around looting things they
haven't yet got.

Our refusal of Fortress Europe is a refusal of capitalism as style
of life. We prefer selforganization as choice of life and we refuse
business logics. What we are looking for is a revolution in our
every day lives: we refuse all hierarchies, we fight from below
against sexism and fascism, selfsufficiency and selfproduction to
try and get out of the market logics, direct action as a form of
conflict and riappropriation, radical ecologism as a battle field,
indypendent information clashing against mainstream media, the
refusal of any "etiquet" (even alternative ones) for everyones
choice and individual dignity.

This we are and know we are not the only ones.

The mobilizations aganinst the EU summit can be the occasion for
many italian and european activists to come to Rome. We belive
that it's good time to make this an opportunity to know each other,
indipendently from the lobbies agenda's, so that we can build
togheter the days of action and share experiences.
The LAURENTINOKKUPATO / L38SQUAT, is in a working
class area in the suburbs of Rome near EUR where will be place
the biggest demo, and it ready to give ospitality from the 29th
semptember to 2nd november to the activists that want to come
here to Rome. You will find where to sleep (bring sleepingbags),
spaces where you can socialize, an infoshop where you can buy
and exchange zines, an internet point and a kitchen. All the rest,
from mobilizations to workshop, from eating to having fun DO IT
YOURSELF. For the days of the Summit we will cook an evening
meal, for the other days the kitchen will be there for anyone who
wants use it.

We would like to build these day togheter, from the small things of
everyday life. We belive that "All Inclusive" is something for tour
operators and not for radical activists, that want an other world
here and now.
So we invite anyone who really wants to fight/build/grow togheter
and orizontally, with all the difficulties and the freedoms this
choice may meen.

If it is possible please let us know how many people and when you
will arrive through our e-mail: l38squat@paranoici.org
