At dawn today, Wednesday, March 16, two anarchist comrades, Gianluca and Evelin, were arrested in Rome.
The investigating prosecutor office is that of Genoa, on behalf of the public prosecutor Federico Manotti, in a joint operation between the ROS (‘Special Operational Grouping’ of carabinieri) and DIGOS (‘General Investigations and Special Operations Division’, political police). The charges against the comrades are “possession of deflagrant and explosive material, attempted manufacture of improvised explosive devices, as well as possession of deflagrant material with the aim of attacking public safety”, in conspiracy with unknown persons. The public prosecutor’s office also contested the aggravating circumstance of terrorism, which was then excluded by the judge for preliminary investigations who signed the arrest. The interrogations by the judge are scheduled for tomorrow.
For the moment, the comrades are locked up in the Rebibbia prison in Rome.
To them all our solidarity, as to all imprisoned anarchists still locked up in prisons around the world.
The addresses to write to the comrades:

C. C. di Roma Rebibbia femminile

There is also manifest from comrades, which they ask to repost:
Freedom for Evelin and Gianluca
AGAINST REPRESSION: WE PROPAGATE ANARCHY
Yesterday, March 16th, in the context of a repressive operation, two anarchist comrades, Evelin and Gianluca, were arrested in Rome. The investigation and the operation are the result of a joint work of the ROS (“Special Operational Grouping” of carabinieri) and the DIGOS (“General Investigations and Special Operations Division”, political police), coordinated by the public prosecutor’s office of Genoa in the person of Federico Manotti. The two comrades are charged with “possession of deflagrant and explosive material, attempted manufacture of improvised explosive devices, as well as possession of deflagrant material with the aim of attacking public safety”, in conspiracy with unknown persons.
Every time the repressive machinery of the State snatches away two comrades, two brothers, two friends, these are hours of rage and sadness. Noting that the repressive forces are doing their job, fulfilling the tasks for which they were established, the comrades are left with the need to act consequently. Even in these years of social peace, mass restrictions, massacres in prisons, imposing discipline and obedience, war and mobilisation for total war there have been those who have acted, who through action have struck at the structures and figures of the state and capital.
We are not interested in going into the merits of the investigation, instead we are interested in clearly expressing and strongly reiterating our solidarity with Evelin and Gianluca and the practices they are accused of.
Revolutionary solidarity with the arrested comrades and with all anarchists locked up in state prisons.
