The fourfth hearing concerning the operation Nottetempo took place in Lecce on April 21. No relevant change in the situation of the anarchists on trial has occurred. The request for Marina to be released, which had been presented by the defence during the previous hearing, was rejected by the jury. Annalisa, who was released on bail in August, could soon be put under house arrest again : the Court of Cassation, in fact, has accepted the public prosecutor’s appeal against her release.
Salvatore and Saverio are moved to Sulmona prison and to Voghera prison respectively at the end of each hearing in spite of the fact that the trial they are facing is in Lecce.
Solidarity actions are carried out and participation is always copious on the occasion of the hearings. At the same time the forces of repression keep on taking their revenge : a lot of copmrades have recently been charged with ’subversive propaganda’ (article 272) for carrying leaflets and papers, others have been charged with a fine of 3,000 euros for blocking the traffic during an action on January 19 and a new investigation on conspiracy (article 270bis)has been opened against Salvatore and six comrades who wrote to him while he was submitted to censorship.
As repressors attack solidarity, the latter is more and more increasing.
Fire to all prisons !
Free everybody !
