Spoleto, Italy: About the death of the anarchist comrade Damiano Corrias

With these few lines, we announce the horrible news of the death on September 26th, 2013 of Damiano Corrias, at the age of 31; he was one of the kids from Spoleto arrested on October 23rd, 2007 during the so called Operation Brushwood, accused of terrorism.

Now is not the time for conspiracy theories, or, even worse, esotericisms (it is the second death, after that of Fabrizio Reali*, out of the five young men arrested). Despite being the day of his death and, what’s more, during these terrible hours, we raise our curse to the sky against his pursuers; against the carabinieri of the ROS, under the leadership of the chief general Giampaolo Ganzer, who used to sell guns and drugs. Against the ex-president of Umbria, Maria Rita Lorenzetti, who spent a couple of weeks under house arrest due to charges of corruption.

Against the foppish dandy of Perugia, the public prosecutor who signs anything that the ROS command, typographical errors such as: “the doctoress Comodi.” The beast of Perugia, who requested 6 years of imprisonment for Damiano, for painting a wall!

And, even so, he did not surrender.

He DJ’d all the mountain parties organized by the anarchists in Spoleto, along with many other more or less political raves.

The last time he hit the streets was on June 23rd, 2012, during the demo in solidarity with the anarchists arrested in Operation Boldness (Ardire), writing wonderful slogans on the walls throughout that night. In the face of Comodi. We are sure that, from his tomb, he’s raising his middle finger at her.


Ciao Daschia – They’re going to pay for all of this

Damiano and Fabrizio assassinated; in what sense?

Of course we do not yet have evidence of an assassination, at least in the sense that is understood by the bosses of repression and their expert technicians. But it’s obviously a voluntary murder by those who would destroy a life only because someone dared to protest with paint against a representative of the regime. We’d like to reflect on the very beautiful words of Damiano’s brother at his funeral: “I want to believe that your heart stopped because of too much joy, and not because of all the pain that you’ve experienced throughout your life.” But let’s not forget “the lies of a justice that is strong before the weak, and weak before the strong.” The same justice, in our words, which on the same day as Damiano’s funeral released Lorenzetti after a couple of weeks under house arrest. You are convicted of corruption = a few days under house arrest; you write on a wall against those corrupt politicians = 6 years imprisoned. This is your justice!

This is why, wanting to believe that his heart stopped because of too much joy and not because of too much pain, we cannot help considering all those thugs as murderers, those who arrested him just because of protesting with paint against the established power. Damiano’s and Fabrizio’s deaths were political homicides in the highest sense of the word “political,” the sense that Comodi has spent years putting into practice her intent to destroy the whole anarchist movement. To kill it.

We’ll stop here, for now. We’ll leave it to the readers’ intelligence to assess whether Manuela Comodi fights only “crimes” and, in reality, she really does love some aspects of the anarchist philosophy –as she claims–, or is she rather a war machine that wants to destroy anyone who rebels against the evil State, even if just with a spray can.

In any case…
May Comodi let the dead rest in peace.

* Three weeks after his arrest, Fabrizio was released. Comodi did not have any evidence to request a trial. That said, she did not file it away into the archives and, for many years, the lawyers requested the formalization of the filing in order to ask the bastards of the public prosecutor’s office in Perugia for compensation. Nevertheless, there were no results. Finally, Fabrizio died on June 23rd, 2010. He loved alcohol and, at the age of 40, an intestinal complication took his life.
