Florence - Update on the arrested anarchists
Translated from informa-azione.info
We receive from the Pistoia anarchist comrades:
Last Thursday [29 March] the bloody Florence cops assaulted and arrested three comrades, Nicola, Filomena and Sandro and accused them of a series of bullshit such as resistance and causing bodily harm. This morning [Saturday 30th March] the judge decided to make a favour to the Florence Digos [Italian political police]: as he obviously couldn't keep the comrades imprisoned, he opted for house arrest in the comrades' towns, two in Pontassieve and one in Pistoia. It is clear how this operation aims at eliminating all ‘elements of disturbance', that is to say those who are active in the city. As power can't (for the moment) do whatever they like with Anarchists, they try their best to silence them, in this case through house arrest. On the contrary they did do whatever they liked with some immigrants, who were beaten to death in the police headquarters of Florence [the comrades were arrested while distributing leaflets on this event].
Solidarity with the comrades hit by repression, fire to all prisons and death to the authorities!
Perugia - Anarchists investigated, searched and questioned
On 29th March the power of attorney of Perugia, following an investigation led by public prosecutor Comodi, has unleashed a repressive operation against 4 anarchist comrades. House searches were carried out in Pisa, Chieti, Brescia, Genoa, Catania, Ravenna and other cities. We don't have a complete picture yet but we know that 2 comrades were forcibly taken to the ROS [Special Operations Unit of the Carabinieri] barracks in Perugia after being house searched, where they were supposed to be questioned by the public prosecutor. The comrades gave no comment interviews and were released in the night after 22 hours of kidnapping. The charges are: 270bis and 280, the latter concerning ‘a subversive nature of crime organization'. Carabinieri of the ROS of Perugia, ANTI-SUBVERSION unit of Rome and TECHINCAL INVESTIGATIONS unit of Rome took part in this police operation. Besides the usual IT and paper material, these kinds of stuff were also seized by the cops: clothes pegs, bulbs, pliers, screws, nails, bolts, electric cables, pins, batteries, masks, goggles, books of general chemistry and books of organic chemistry... in spite of anti-technology!
As always particular attention was given by the cops to the mail with imprisoned comrades, especially letters with Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenish and the prisoners of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire. In the context of IT investigations, the email address culmine(at)distruzione(dot)org mail has been violated and copied. We are going to spread a note on this, both in Italian and Spanish. For the moment we express our unconditional solidarity to the 4 investigated comrades and we keep on shouting:
Death to the State, its accomplices, protectors and false opponents!
Culmine, 30th March 2012
Culmine and ParoleArmate email accounts have been violated and copied by State forces
from Contra Info
Culmine is informing you that in the context of an investigation against anarchist comrades from Italy, our mail has been violated and copied. So, we notify that we will no longer use culmine(at)distruzione(dot)org and that in the next days we are going to decide if and how we're going to continue operating the blog culmine.noblogs.org.
We ask from all individuals and/or groups not to send anything to Culmine's e-mail address, which is currently in the hands of the ROS TECHNICAL INVESTIGATIONS unit of Roma Carabinieri, who are now controlling with Spytech Spyagent Software all computer traffic we receive.
We would also recommend that all comrades, who got in contact with Culmine, urgently change their password or even their email account itself.
We will publish the new email at which you can contact Culmine as soon as we manage to change it. What is more important, with or without technologies, is to continue our attack filled with rage and hatred!
With the memory of our comrades fallen in battle! A strong and warm hug for all anarchist hostages in the prisons of the world!

There's a similar message on ParoleArmate's blog too:
"Careful! Due to a police investigation, do not write anymore to us!"
