Chi aspira alla libertà non si “misura”


Le molteplici operazioni repressive lanciate dallo Stato italiano dal 2019 a oggi costringono tutt’ora alcuni/e anarchici/che a misure restrittive che ne colpiscono la libertà di movimento, obbligati/e o impossibilitati/e, a seconda dei casi, alla residenza in specifiche città o regioni. A partire da questa condizione comune di “sottoposti a misure minori” rilanciamo insieme la solidarietà, in previsione della stagione di udienze che da settembre, e per tutto l’autunno, vedrà più di 200 compagni/e a processo in Italia. Nei primi giorni di settembre, in particolare, riprenderà il processo di appello per l’Op. Scripta Manent, per la quale 5 compagni/e sono in carcere da 4 anni (due di loro da 8) e che in primo grado ha visto condanne fino a 20 anni. Per questo processo il pm Sparagna ha parlato di un anarchismo definito “accettabile” e di uno “criminale”, un’affermazione che racchiude la strategia punitiva che lo Stato vuole attuare, fondata su divisioni fra “buoni ” e ”cattivi” nel movimento anarchico e pene esemplari.

Testo in inglese:

From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

As recipients of these kind of minor measures, together we want to relaunch our solidarity with the more than 200 comrades involved in the various trials in Italy that are starting this September and that shall continue throughout the autumn.

In particular, the appeal trial of the Scripta Manent Operation will resume at the beginning of September: this trial involves 5 comrades who have been in prison for 4 years (two of them for 8 years) and which has resulted in 20+ years of sentence in the first grade.

During this trial the prosecutor Sparagna gibbered of an “acceptable” anarchism and of a “criminal” one, statements that contain the punitive strategy that the State wants to carry out, based on dividing the “good” from the “bad” within the anarchist movement and the ruling of exemplary sentences.


We are anarchists subject to restrictive measures following a series of investigations that have crossed the Italian peninsula in the last year and a half.

They would like to isolate us, but they cannot. They would like to prevent us from supporting our comrades in prison, but their repression can only strengthen our solidarity.

With these various investigations, measures and prison detentions they want to wear us out and divide us, but we remain firm in our ideas and our relations, also thanks to the strong and sincere solidarity that has never failed us and that is increasingly under attack in the courtrooms.

They want to divide us between “good” and “bad”, between an anarchism they call “acceptable” and one they call “criminal”. We are aware that it is our ideas that have been put on the stand in the latest enquiries, all the more so when these ideas find the way of being translated into action, because as we’ve always believed, thought and action find their meaning only when tied together. And it’s not surprising that a hierarchical system of power such as the State is trying to knock out its enemies by playing dirty and reviewing history, precisely when social anger is growing everywhere.

We don’t intend to bow down to their repressive strategies and we reaffirm our full solidarity and complicity with all the anarchists who will be on trial from September: we stand side by side with the comrades under investigation for the Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometeo, Bialystok and Lince Operations, with the anarchist comrades Juan and Davide and with those who will be tried for the Brennero demonstration; we assert our solidarity with Carla, an anarchist comrade arrested in August after living more than a year as a fugitive, following the Scintilla Operation.

We know very well who are the enemies that imprison our comrades and against whom we are fighting and every anarchist knows in his/her heart how and where to act to demonstrate what solidarity is.

Even if not all of us can be present in the courtrooms alongside our comrades on trial or where solidarity will be manifested, we want to express all our affinity, our love and our anger to them and to all anarchists in prison.

Let’s continue to attack this world of cages. Solidarity is a weapon, and an opportunity.
