Interview with the Secretary of the National Party of CARC - Pietro Vangeli - Trial of the caravan (new) PCI and CARC and ASP in the Court of Assizes of Bologna postponed , returns to the legal process in September 19, 2012 !
The interview is in English below
The hearing began on May 2 with 40 minutes late and immediately after the appeal Chief Justice Leonardo Grassi postponed the trial until September 19th without even ruling on preliminary objections raised by our lawyers at the hearing on 8 February .
The reasons? Of the obvious excuses:
- The absence of a lawyer, who had previously reported to be present only on h.13:00 and the President of the Court two days before he answered would postpone the fixed hearing , that would have awaited the hour. 13:00 to start any debate and in the meantime had given judgment on preliminary objections raised by lawyers on February 8,
- The absence of a prosecution witness, an agent of DIGOS of Modena, who was on annual leave ... the Court has not yet ruled on the admission of witnesses or of those cited by the prosecution or of the above by the defense.
The Court of Bologna decided not to decide. Do not know what to do, given the inconsistency of the investigation, which underlie the process? Empty trips and related transportation costs, days lost from work, expenses for lawyers?
Interview with the Secretary of the National Party of CARC - Pietro Vangeli
But for us it was a wasted trip!
Many people who have approached the garrison in the Piazza del Nettuno, requested information, they gave us their solidarity: we have collected 50 signatures to the call "NO to the outlawing of communists," sold 40 copies of Resistance, a distributed thousands of leaflets and a young student sympathizer joined us..
We called to organize, coordinate and fight to oust the government of professors and millionaires, installed with a coup, which is making false documents to meet the demands of the Vatican, speculators, bankers and capitalists.
The great masses should form an emergency government of workers and popular organizations: a government expression of interests that implements the popular slogan "meaningful work and decent work for all" and eliminate at least the worst effects of the crisis with emergency measures also the cost of passing on the interest and the rules of Italian and international powers that be.
The Trail was the opportunity to denounce the increasing use of repression and the limitation of democratic freedoms and to call for solidarity with those who are attacked by the police and the courts: the three Sardinian shepherds of the MPS who are on May 2 been indicted by the Court of Civitavecchia, Giorgio Rossetto, no TAV militant detained in Saluzzo that April is censored for "inciting rebellion" by other inmates, to Fuoriluogo of Bologna, which has recently been the subject of a ' action of sabotage against the car of one of their classmates.
I'm not missing this time either provocation and intimidation by DC police and DIGOS of Bologna: in the Court before they tried to obstruct the entry of relatives and friends of the hearing in the classroom, then they raised a fuss because a the accused was wearing a shirt that said "no to the persecution of communists - stop the court Giovagnoli" and reported the "crime" to the President of the Court (which he dismissed the matter, saying to do a report for the Prosecution; near the garrison have stopped for inspection and identification of P-CARC three companions who were putting up propaganda posters of the National Assembly of the P-CARC to be held May 12 in Naples, but released them when they are overtaken other comrades who stood to make a rally in the streets against the abuses perpetrated by the police, the anonymity they use and the dissolution of the Mobile Unit VII in Bologna [Read the dossier Copwatching].
We continue the fight to end the trial against the caravan of (new) PCI!
No to the outlawing of communism!
Strengthening the democratic vigilance: debunk and denounce the abuses of the police! Solidarity with the comrades who will be tried on September 25 in Bologna on charges that he helped build the site "Hunt Cop" sponsored by the (new) PCI!
Solidarity is a weapon!
We respond to the repression of the Authority against the resistance movement of the masses with the extension, strengthening and multiplication of class solidarity: it fall back on their feet the boulder that they have raised!
From the trials of the caravan (new) PCI arrests against NO TAV, the trials against the anarchists Fuoriluogo arrests for October 15 until the inquiries against the Movement of Pastors Sardis: build a common front to fight against repression and solidarity with all the comrades under attack.

Here is letter delivered to Italian Ambassador in London on 8th February 2012 protesting the legal proceedings against the (n)PCI, CARC Party, the Association for Proletarian Solidarity
The Italian Ambassador
14 Three Kings Yard
8th February 2012
We the undersigned formally protest against the persecution that part of the Italian magistracy carries out against the dissent, the freedom of expression and association.
These magistrates continuously utilize clearly political crimes, introduced in italian order by fascism, as that of subversive association, against Communist political organisations (i.e. the trial against the (new) Italian Communist Party and the Party of the Committees to Support the Resistance - for Communism).
The attempt to use the scarecrow of "terrorism" for these attacks on Communists and on people who protest makes us remember the times when Mussolini and those who supported him firstly outlawed Communists and then eliminated every party and the Parliament itself ; when the fascists were calling the Partisans (most of whom were Communists) "bandits" who fought to free Italy from Nazi-fascism.
The many judiciary inquiries against (n)PCI, CARC Party, the Association for Proletarian Solidarity and their sympathizers and helpmates are a clear violation of any democratic principle. They are an attempt to outlaw Communism, which is now clear.
I therefore send this letter to protest and to reaffirm my indignation and my concern for the reactionary and persecutory work attacking the very fundamental principles of the Italian Constitution concerning freedom of political association and organisation being carried out today in the city of Bologna with the trial of members of the (n) PCI, CARC Party and Association for Proletarian Solidarity.
