Genova 2001 is not over – Benefit Voku for the activists convicted after the G8 protests


Monday August 12th 2013, Genova 2001 is not over – Benefit Voku for the activists convicted after the G8 protests, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm.

In July 2012, 11 years after the protests against the G8 summit in Genoa, 10 people have been convicted for taking part in the demonstrations, the sentences vary from 6-14 years.

The law that allowed this insane sentence is named “Devastation and Looting”: this law was included in the Italian Penal Code in 1935, to protect the so called “public order” under the fascist regime. In the last decade this law has been used multiple times to convict political activists.

In 2004 SupportoLegale (LegalSupport) started a campaign to raise money to support the people involved in the trials connected to the demonstrations of Genova2001 and now, after all these years, SupportoLegale launched the campaign 10×100. One of the aims of this campaign is the abolition of this fascist law, that is being used more and more often to convict political activists.

Roughly 200.000 Euro is needed now to support the people involved in these trials for the legal costs that they have accumulated during 11 years of court-cases, and for those they will have to sustain in the future.
