Italy—More Arrests in the Struggle Against the TAV

NO_TAV_logoFrom: actforfreedomnow

This morning (11th July) three anarchist comrades were arrested between Milan and Lecce, and another one was raided.

The three are accused of taking part in the attack on the yard in Chiomonte in the night between 13th and 14th May 2013, the same episode following which Chiara, Mattia, Claudio and Niccolò were jailed in December 2013.

We don’t know much about the charges yet. In the press we read: damage, arson, violence on public official, possession and fabrication of explosive devices. Therefore it seems that prosecutors from Turin have been forced to rule out the charge of terrorism, following a previous sentence from the court of cassation that cancelled this charge in Chiara, Mattia, Claudio and Niccolò’s case.

Update: the arrested comrades are Francesco Sala, Lucio Alberti (from Milan) and Graziano Mazzarelli from Lecce (who had been living in Milan but was on holiday in Lecce on the day of the arrests).


These are the addresses of the comrades:

Graziano Mazzarelli
Casa Circondariale
Via Paolo Perrone 4
Borgo S.Nicola
73100 Lecce

Lucio Alberti and Francesco Sala
Casa Circondariale San Vittore
Piazza Filangeri 2
20123 Milan
