Italian protest

Issue No. 1829

THE ITALIAN state has arrested 20 activists after the successful European Social Forum in Florence. They have charged with 'subversion against state authority'. These included Antonino Campenni of the Cobas union national executive, and Francesco Caruso, one of the leaders of the 'disobbediente' group. Antonino spoke at a Globalise Resistance meeting in London last year.

There have been demonstrations against the arrests in around 30 Italian cities. Antonino is currently under house arrest. Write to him at Via Roma 6, 89861 Parghelia (VV), Italy.
