SOLIDARITY WITH THE VAL SUSA STRUGGLE
Fuck the bosses and their projects of destruction
You are here tonight to enjoy a gig, which is going to be great. But it’s not just a gig!
The reason why five bands are playing tonight is to express solidarity with a struggle going on in Italy for more than twenty years, the struggle in the Susa valley (northern Italy) known as NO TAV.
What is TAV?
TAV is the high speed railway, a project that means destruction of the ecosystem, transformation of natural landscapes into horrible travelling routes for businessmen and rich people, and expropriation of land.
Various Italian governments have been trying to implement this project for years, putting at risk one of the most beautiful mountain areas of the country.
The plan for the construction of a high speed railway track linking Turin (in Italy) to Lyon (in France) will irreversibly destroy the valley causing not only environmental disaster but also the disappearance of villages and traditional ways of life. And for what? For the creation of a colossal work that will only benefit the profits of the many companies involved in the project, as the new high speed railway line can only serve the interests of the very rich. Nobody else would ever use these useless and expansive trains.
The people of the Susa valley have been opposing this project of death since the early 1990s: construction yards have been occupied on a great number of occasions in spite of the brutal police repression unleashed by the governments in charge with violent clashes and mass arrests. Actions of sabotage have also been numerous and constant throughout all these years, and at times they have caused huge disruptions on the ‘normality’ of the capitalist system of production.
Following a day of resistance against the occupation troops of the government in the Susa Valley that took place in July last year, on January 2012 dozens of people were arrested, seven of whom are still being held. This gig is for them: practical support is very much needed and can bring some relief to the imprisoned comrades. But what all of us ought to do everywhere is to attack the structures of power, each in his or her way.
The struggle in the Susa valley hits at the core of the interests of the powerful because it is a mass struggle, a struggle from below, a struggle that expresses itself with attacks, practices of self-management and total disregard for political parties and institutions.
FROM ITALY TO THE UK, LET’S STOP THE DESTRUCTIVE PROJECTS OF POWER!!

An explosive device (paper bomb) blew up at around 3am on Monday 21/5 inside a skip near a polling station in Rapallo (Genoa). The device exploded right in the piazza of Rapallo. The rumble of the explosion was so loud that several people residents in the area went out to the street. All police forces and the fire brigade went to the scene in order to extinguish another three skips set ablaze. According to the investigators the action is criminally motivated and is linked to the arson of two municipal police cars that took place in a nearby area. Carabinieri confirmed that the two cars of the local police were put on fire outside the police headquarters, whereas two of the four skips that went up in flames were placed near the school where the polling station had been set. There were no wounded.

In the context of the 2012 NATO Chicago summit, on 20th and 21st May of 2012, many counter-protesters were detained during anti-NATO protest marches. Several anarchists were arrested ‘preemptively’. They were accused of scheduling and preparing militant actions against the summit meeting of the world’s largest warmonger. There are yet no reliable information from friends and comrades who were actually there, but due to the need of dissemination of some facts about the arrests, here follows a first summary by ABC Berlin.
