Update on Anarchist Prisoner Davide Delogu from Sardinia, once Again on Hunger Strike

Davide has been on indefinite hunger strike since November 4th as a response to the jail:

Against the prohibition of being present at the next hearing in Cagliari on 14th February, against article 14bis with its total solitary confinement and its extension for another six months, against its jails, its cells and its prison domination.

In solidarity and closeness to the comrades arrested following operation Scripta Manent whose trial begins on 16th November.
Let direct, beautiful, rebel, enflamed solidarity warm our hearts.

Up with those who continue to struggle behind bars and those who don’t submit but rebel.

A warm embrace.

Davide Delogu

Court of Cassation’s Verdict Regarding an Article Published by the Anarchist Monthly ‘Invece’

On Thursday 19th October the court of cassation held a session of the trial against a comrade accused of instigation to commit crime following an article published in the anarchist monthly ‘Invece’ in May 2012.

The article is about a book written by Pierpaolo Sinconi, a carabinieri captain. He took part in war missions in Bosnia Herzegovina, Kosovo and Iraq. He was a tutor in training centres for peacekeeping in Africa, America, Asia and Europe. He’s a member of a group of experts in peacekeeping and peacebuilding from ‘G8’ countries. And since 2006 he’s being teaching International Law and Humanitarian International Law at the Stability Police Units Centre in Vicenza.

The crime in question is ‘instigation to commit crime’.

In spite of the fact that the article was signed, the ROS of Rome and Trento made investigations to identify the author; hence the raids carried out in September 2013.

The sentence to one year and three months imprisonment was confirmed; moreover the prosecutor declared that the possibility to appeal to the cassation was inadmissible and therefore the comrade will also face a fine.

Because the sentence is under three years, there was no immediate arrest; request for possible alternatives to prison can be made within 30 days.
