Scott Harris spoke with Vittorio Agnoletto, spokesperson with the Genoa Social Forum, a group representing more than 800 international organizations that supported the protest against the G-8 summit. He discusses the demonstrations and police violence which occurred in Genoa.
how too reminiscent the violence in Genoa is...Yesterday, Big Business put in Mussolini to represent its interests. Today things are much more transparent. Italy has made a giant step forward and put its richest man as head of its state. What sad times for Italy. Povera Italia! Un' altra notta scura?
The following message is being circulated far and wide to mobilize all justice groups against the dramatic repression in Genoa. 400 people are still being detained, and the violence unleashed against activists is being protested around the world.
Having witnessed complete blockage of access to two postings of my "Weekly Update.." Ids=54586 & 55083; I realized that access to critical information such as that containe in the following articles has been similarly blocked.
Two activists arrested at a solidarity demo in front of the Boston Italian Consulate are being arraigned tomorrow on charges of assault on a police officer. Bail was set at the exorbitant amount of $25,000. Show support for the defendants by meeting at Post Office Square at 8:30 tomorrow morning (Tuesday the 24th) in order to head to the Boston Municipal court house together. The Court House is at 80-90 Devonshire Street in Post Office Square.
