The situation on the french-italian border after the eviction of the Casa Cantoniera in Oulx – Post Eviction Update, April 2021

After the eviction of Casa Cantoniera: They can take our spaces, they can criminalize and imprison us, but they cannot bury our ideas and they cannot silence the truth

The following text is an attempt by some of the people that were involved in the occupied Casa Cantoniera to analyse the eviction of our space and reflect on the past years of our presence in this part of the border.

We are trying to regroup and organize presence in the border. We don’t know yet which form this will take, because it depends on what is going to happen in the next days and weeks. If you are interested and want to stay updated, write an email to chezjesoulx@riseup.net (pgp key on request).
