Milano-Italy: in Via E. Gola against the policeTagged as: italy police repression solidarity
On Friday night, in Milan, in the core of Ticinese neighbourhood, the police shot against a car.
Among the six, some gun shots smashed through the rear window and one pierced right through the traveller.
Few millimetres decided between life and death.
A man in uniform was the one shooting, a friend and a comrade is the one being shot.
The excuse seems to be the one of having ignored a control demand.
What happened is not a mere news criminal story to be mystified and re-mystified on newspapers as much as one likes, nor an outrageous excess of zeal of which to get indignant, but the ordinary result of a permanent war declared in the name of «security»; a security that kills, in the police headquarters, in jails, on the streets, everywhere something escapes control, everywhere there are lives to be normalized.
On the other hand we live in territories occupied by armed men.
The army patrols our streets.
Men in uniforms continuously pretend from us to show them documents.
Internment camps are set up on the margins of our cities.
To answer back to what happened is not just a personal vengeance, rather a vital necessity, concerning all of us. Because turning our backs today, means to be with our backs to the wall tomorrow.
They’ve understood it in Greece, when after Alexis’ assassination the revolt burst.
They’ve understood it in France, when after the death of two guys chased by the police started a week of fire.
They know it already well the inhabitants of Terzigno, Chiaiano and Pianura, the Susa valley dwellers, Aldrovandi, Giuliani, Frapporti, Cucchi, Lonzi, Sandri’s relatives, and of all the murdered by the police, as much as they know it the thousands lives turned clandestine and everyday hunted down.
The shot of the other night broke the silence on a lesser and lesser hidden truth: the police is an organized threat against our lives, to take back our streets today and to free the territory from the ones occupying it with arms is a vital issue.
We ask to all the ones that will read this call, in Italy, in Europe and in the world, to all the ones we know, to wherever anonymous parties, to all the free men and women which have unsettled matters with the police, to act as soon as possibile and to answer back to what happened and continue to happen every day.
Monday 8th all in Via Gola
In solidarity with Enzo and Lacine
