We haven’t forgiven the death of Carlo Giuliani. An Italian anarchist born in 1978, he was one of millions of protesters who participated in the Genoa demos against the G8 leaders’ violence. Comrades witnessed his assassination by Italian riot police’s Carabinieri in 20 July 2001.
After nine years, the case ‘Giuliani and Gaggio v. Italy’ was referred to the Court’s Grand Chamber of the European Court of ‘Human Rights’. The summary description of socalled ‘Principal facts’, includes: ‘As to the officer who had fired the fatal shot, the judge took the view that he had fired into the air without intent to kill and that he had in any event acted in self-defense in response to the violent attack on him and his colleagues’.

Pic: Carlo

What does this remind us of? Statements made from Greek authorities in regard of the assassination of Alexis Grigoropoulos, which led to December 2008 Uprising in Greece. Alexis Kougias, the lawyer defending Epaminondas Korkoneas, the police special guard who shot dead the teenager in Exarchia, central Athens, in 6 December 2008, argued in court that the fatal bullet was fired into the air and not toward the victim.

Nothing changes – Revenge for Carlo Giuliani.
