Next week, the judge will inform about her decisions concerning the 10 accused for rebellion in the Detention Center of Vincennes.
On March 17th, 13.30 at the TGI court of Paris, metro Cité, on 16th room.
-Almost all the request of the defense have been rejected ( see HERE about the trial and its mascarade, and HERE about the solidarity actions for that trial).
-Gilbert Flam, the prosecutor, requested 6 to 3 years of prisons against them! The nine people accused, have already been between 9 months to one year in prison, wainting for the trial. The 10th person have been so hardly beaten up inside, he’s now disabled, and the State took off its accusation.
- „While some people who fight with the sans-papiers and, in general, for liberty of movement and installation, are the subjects of proceedings (arrests, investigations, trial…), it’s more than evidence we show we‘ll not yield to intimidations; among others, continuing to show our solidarity to the Vincenees accused, and in general to all those who- with or without papers- express their revolt against the dialy violence of the deportation machine“
In Marseille, gathering at the Detention Center of Canet
16 March, at 5.00 – Place Cadenat (Belle de Mai-13003).
Other trials will follow- in Bordeaux and Toulouse.
FROM VINCENNES TO ITALY
Here some words from the Vincennes Detention Center detainees solidarity committee, about and for the struggles in Italy:
Solidarity with the arrested comrades and the sans-papiers imprisoned in the CID!
Since several years, the control of the migration flux is a main interest for the european governments. Claiming the asbolishment of the borders inside the Schengen space, they multiplied and dispersed inside each territory, and increase outside Europe: the streets, the transport, administration, banks, turn into a border at each control. The Detention Centers, the wainting zones, the camps for migrants, are part of these murderous borders of Europe.
Like in France, in Italy, where already 25 CID ( Center of identification and Deportation) are created, more and more Detention Centers are built on its territory. The State also subsidizes camps for migrants outside of its borders, as in Libya.
Inside these CID, the revolts multiply since several years: hunger strikes, confrontation with police, arsons, collective escapes… In 2009, two CIE were totally destroyed during collective revolts.
Outside also, people struggle for the liberty of movement and installation, often linked with the detainees: demonstrations at the CID, occupations (for example Red-Cross, that manages some centers), the blockade of the transfers between two centers, graffities…
Against these resistances, the State multiplies repressive actions.
On August 13rd, fourteen sans-papiers imprisoned in Via Corelli are accused for an arson and imrisoned. In October 2009, they are condamned to several months of prison. On January 16th, Mohammed El Abbouby, one of the fourteen people, is found dead in his cell. Joy, another person condamned, has accused the general inspector of the CID for rape attempt. She’s charged for „slander“. After several months in prison, she’s once again in a CID.
The State hits also outside. On February 23rd, about twenty people have their houses searched in Turin, Rovereto, Vicoforte, and Mantoue. Three are now in prison and three under house arrest. More than computer and flyers, usually seized, the BlackOut Radio computers have been seized. The people charged are qualified of „insurrectionalist anarchists“, embodying the interior ennemies. In Italy, as in France, the State tries to isolate, using press campaign and a charges arsenal; defining the solidarity acts of delinquent, criminals, or terrorists.
The Vincennes Detainees Solidarity Committee shows its solidarity with Luca, Andrea, Marco, Maja, Paolo- and all those who fight, inside or outside- against the CID and for the liberty of movement and installation!
You can write the people in prison:
Luca Ghezzi – Via Pianezza 300, 10151 Torino Andrea Ventrella – Via Pianezza 300, 10151 Torino Fabio Milan – Via Pianezza 300, 10151 Torino
Liberty for all! With or without papers, in Italy as elsewhere!
Liberty of movement and installation!
