Clashes at Italian anti-US demonstration

Protesters have pelted riot police with rocks during an American Independence Day demonstration against the $US500 million ($A632.27 million) enlargement of a US military base in Italy.

An AFP photographer says youths among hundreds leading a march on the base on Saturday hurled bottles at police who responded with tear gas on the approach to the construction site at a former airport in northern Vicenza.

The work at the base - which has a current troop capacity of 2,750 - will enable 1,800 soldiers presently based in Germany to be stationed there.


Six police hurt in clashes at Italian anti-US military base demo

VICENZA, Italy (AFP) — Six policemen were hurt in clashes late Saturday with demonstrators at a rally of more than 3,000 people against the 500-million-dollar enlargement of a US military base in Italy, police said.

Some 300 youths, wearing helmets and carrying plexiglass shields, pelted riot cops with rocks and bottles during the American Independence Day demo. The police replied with tear gas and baton charges, AFP photographers said.

The work at the base, a former airport in northern Vicenza -- which has a current troop capacity of 2,750 -- will enable 1,800 soldiers currently based in Germany to be stationed there.


600 people demonstrated against G8 in Berlin

Today 4th of july around 600 demonstrators showed their solidarity with the protests in Italy against G8 and expressed resistance against “security architectures” (see the call on With the slogan “Quake G8 – We are your crisis” the march started in Kreuzberg, passed the italian chamber of commerce and crossed the center of Berlin with russian and british embassy ending at Brandenburger Tor, next to the french and US embassy (which was abandonned because their party was shifted to western Berlin). Slogans shouted at the demonstration were like “Berlin, L`Aquila, resistance is international”, “A, anti, anticapitalista” and “G8, G8, we are here, the black block from Genoa” (that sounds more nice in german).

Several speeches were held, such as focussing on G8 and climate politics, G8 and militarism and war, the mobilization in Italy, the protests in Vicenza today and the courtcases in Genoa against activists and police. A solidarity note was sent to the big demonstration in Vicenza. Italian comrades explained some dates of the mobilization. Solidarity was shown with the two italians that were imprisoned yesterday, accusing them being part of an “anarcho-insurrectionalist conspiracy”. Police claims that they tried to sabotage a railway line by placing “iron couplers” at the electrical cables that should tear them down when a train is passing (see for similar investigations in France).


From July 6th L’aquila will host the most cynical G8 summit in the history.

Even if works at Maddalena were already started, Berlusconi Government cleverly decided to exploit the “Earthquake emergency” situation, moving the whole G8 organization to a damaged area close to L’Aquila.
If “opportunities and advantages” of G8 are not so clear, what seems to be evident is the government intention of avoiding any possible protest, putting forward the emergency state to keep the population far and to attack who has decided to demonstrate against.


We do not pay your crisis!

We would like to introduce the initiatives against the G8 scheduled in Italy starting from the 8th July.

Let's start from the assumption that this G8 is the crisis G8 under the G8's governance system crisis.

Bush fell, the USA unilateral management system fell, the credit system under the dollar and monetarism rules fell and no other governance system is already in place.

Under this sky we had a radical assumption: we do not pay their crisis.

We encourage to accelerate the protests, to put in places self managed actions, to connect the resistance experiences and to share opinions and related information.
