Italy: Update on imprisoned anarchists Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito

October 19th, 2012

Over a month after their arrest, comrades Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito remain in solitary confinement, currently in the prison of Sanremo; namely they undergo personal body search and cell search every morning, they are not allowed to contact each other or communicate with other prisoners, they have only an hour of fresh air each day, in a space of the size of a prison cell—with the variation of a wire net on the ceiling instead of bars on the windows—and they’re placed under censorship: when correspondence comes in, all of it is controlled by censorship and delivered to them with a delay of 10 or 15 days, other correspondence is seized without any notification of the sender and amount of incoming mail, while it’s not permitted to keep more than 10 books in the cell, and thus to receive other books via correspondence; and this brief note indicates only the reality of Sanremo prison.


To break this isolation and these cages, here’s the comrades’ address
(for the time being):
