The state and its strong arm team love fancy names for their various operations of repression. From Spain to the UK, from the US to Italy, it is operation this, and operation that. In Italy the latest attack on liberty, mainly against anarchists, is the academic sounding “Operation Scripta Manet”, but no matter how you dress thuggery up, it is still thuggery. All those who find themselves at the receiving end of these fancy sounding operations of brutality, deserve our unstinting solidarity, remember, "First they came for the anarchists-----"
Italy – Anarchist Comrades Anna and Alfredo on Hunger Strike and Updated addresses for the 8 comrades:www.radicalglasgow.me.uk
As of 11th October the comrades arrested as part of the operation “Scripta Manent” have been transferred to 4 different prisons and are all in High Security AS2 sections – all in isolation. They are all subject to censorship in prison – 7 of the comrades have official censorship – but they have all received at least some post and telegrams. As far as we know, they cannot write to each other but we know that Anna received a telegram from Nicola. The comrades inside have asked to receive books, communiqués and as much news as possible.

Comrades Anna and Alfredo on Hunger Strike
Since 3rd October, Alfredo is on hunger strike against isolation and the restrictions that have been placed on his contact with Nicola. He was put in isolation over one month ago due to his act of solidarity with the CCF and for the operation Scripta Manent. Since 10th October Anna Beniamino has also begun a hunger strike against isolation inside.
