Edito Strikes Prison Extraditions Italy France

Amnesty the movement of the movements Amnistie

For medical reasons (impossibility of perfuser serum on base of glucose to a patient in the grip of the aftereffects of a hepatitis), Oreste Scalzone was forced to stop the hunger strike on April 26th in the evening, further to an illness. He pursues to call up to the movement of the movements for the amnesty, after being supported by many emails mainly coming from Italy and now having been reunited by the main confederacies and the Italian organizations of the workers and by the council of the municipality of Bologna. It is very important not to loosen the widest, localized and delocalized democratic pressure, by signing the version updated by the interactive petition which we present here, with the agreement of the
administrator of the blog OresteScalzone&C. who manages the data.


Whatever are the differences of our political and European ideas, in front of blind and deaf powers in Italy as in France concerning the balance of the lead years, we show solidarity to support the hunger strike of Italian Oreste Scalzone, whose objectives are the following ones :

« - Call to the action of the " movement of the movements ", and on any initiatives, individual, associative, of the militant ground or of the opinion, to ask for the immediate restoring of the forms of "enfeeblement" of the execution of punishment, statutory prison Italian said " reform gozzini ", today hollowed out and congealed.

 Call to open the debate of a campaign to reach the abrogation ( by referendum ) of the special law of 1992, which brings up the quorum necessary for the approval of any law of amnesty and of indulto ( enfeeblement of punishmen ) which was of the simple majority - as expected by the Constitution - to the "qualified majority" of two thirds( which allows that a minority of blocking prevents any measure of " judicial forgetting ".

 Launch of a campaign for a " law of popular initiative " of amnesty and/or of indulto (enfeeblement of punishment), rehabilitating at least the project of indulto approved by the " Committee of Justice " of the Chamber of representatives (but abandoned since). »

For our part, we call to support and to promote these initiatives for the respect of the civil liberties and in a similar respect for our diverse purposes and for our positions. We know here the expectations of the political refugees threatened with extradition and we know there the abusive conditions about their prisoners companions, in the term of the same lawsuits under charges and punishments by the laws of exception -which continue beyond their former time.

We confirm our support for Oreste Scalzone, noticing right now that the call by its own body is understood and that all kinds of individual and/or common united actions, whatever they are from the part of citizens, persons, or militants, will follow and will be hear in echo of his movement growing.

Aware of the difficult environment to propagate this call in the traditionnal medias, nevertheless we call to pass on this petition to newspapers, to radios, to TV, and in their forums on Internet -by the way of our respective means and all those of our correspondents.

Finally, we call to inform this appeal to signatures and its links in all the sites, to put active titles " Amnesty Italy Sign on ", as well as to indicate it in the forums and the alternate medias, and by email via mailing lists and via the lists of discussions.

Any mistakes -grammar or words- to be corrected by the senders. Please tell us by email.

Thanks. Please to correct the language and to forward!

  • good ol’ bellaciao. they have finally achieved 100%, complete incoherence.

    • To those whose minds are not accustomed to critical or analytical thinking - YOURS - it’s incoherent. Sometimes one needs to think a little, to search for truth, for the point. Of course, this takes mental ability and work, which are both foreign to you. Go back to watching FOX News. It’s more your speed.

      I guess that’s better than simply calling you a redneck dumba$$.
