These comrades are serving a 10-year sentence for ‘devastation and plunder’, a charge that Italian prosecutors devised in order to punish the hundreds of rebels who rioted in Genoa during the G8 summit in July 2001. Carlo Giuliani, a young rebel, was shot dead by a cop on the second day of the summit. At the end of those days of generalized revolt, many demonstrators were beaten up and tortured by the police, while others went on trial and were sentenced in 2012.

Nicola and Alfredo were arrested in September 2012 and accused of having shot and kneecapped Roberto Adinolfi, the boss of an infamous nuclear power company, in May 2012.The action had been claimed by the Olga Nucleus of the Anarchist Informal Federation. The comrades claimed responsibility for the action during the trial, which was held in November 2013. Alfredo was sentenced to 10 years and 8 months, Nicola to 9 years and 4 months. It must be said that Roberto Adinolfi’s kneecapping was very much welcomed by anyone opposing nuclear power in Italy and abroad.

These comrades were arrested after raids were carried out in various Italian cities on 6th September 2016, in what was named ‘operation scripta manent’. Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, already in prison following Adinolfi’s kneecapping, were also included in the investigation. The charges for all (except Daniele) relate to a string of direct actions carried out between 2004 and 2012 and claimed by the Informal Anarchist Federation. In other words the comrades are accused of belonging to a subversive association with intent of terrorism.
Daniele, on the contrary, was arrested in relation to other proceedings on charges of possession of material for the manufacture of explosive devices, following the discovery in his apartment of some batteries and an electrician’s manual.

The situation of Divine Umoru, anarchist prisoner held up in the Ferrara AS2 unit on charges of possession of potentially explosive material.
Judges have once again refused to grant Divine house arrest, this time at his mother’s home in Bologna (they had already refused house arrest in a comrade’s home). The pretexts were the fact they didn’t have availability of electronic bracelets and Divine’s subversive frequentations in Bologna.
Their intention concerning Divine seems that of organizing a one-way direct trip to Nigeria. He left Nigeria as a child, when he came to Italy with his family. If this is what they want we must act so that it doesn’t happen and it is every Anarchist’s responsibility to act in this respect.
In the coming days an appeal trial will be held against the refusal to grant house arrest.
As I write this, the solstice is almost upon us. I always think that this time of year takes on an almost dreamlike quality, and time seems to warp into something else so that the New Year and Imbolc seem like distant memories and like yesterday all at the same time.
