Solidarity with former members of the Red Brigades arrested in france

Arrest in this era for the revolutionary activities that happened in past, when the left and anarchist movements in Europe were very different, make the situation of militants much more difficult; Because the lack of correct political understanding in the majority of leftist and anarchist movements in the present age about the class struggle and the correct methods of class struggle, causes the necessary social solidarity not to be received for militants who fought in the 70s and 80s. The left and anarchist movement in Europe has seriously lost its political and military power. Undoubtedly, 2021 is not like in the 70s and 80s, when the Red Brigades carried out its revolutionary activities. The arrest of former members of the Red Brigades in 2021 for its revolutionary activities in the 1970s and 1980s has led to a lack of solidarity needed for these militant social strugglers. In fact, the Italian and French regimes have found the courage to arrest comrades who were living for years under asylum, because the pacifism and reformism of the left and anarchist currents in Europe have allowed regimes to do so.

It is the least historical and political duty of any social strugglers to declare its solidarity with the former members of the Red Brigades. It should also be borne in mind that comrades like Renato Corcio are in prison, and need the usual solidarity of the movement. Comrades, their revolutionary culture and history should not be forgotten.

"Published by AMW (Abolition Media Worldwide):
Several former members of the Red Brigades — the revolutionary Italian guerrilla group active in the 1970s and 1980s — were arrested Wednesday in France after years of living under de facto asylum.

Seven comrades were taken into custody, all but two former members of the Red Brigades, were convicted decades ago but were able to evade capture by taking refuge in France before beginning their prison sentences. The statute of limitations on European arrest warrants for their capture were to begin expiring in December, through 2023.

Three other individuals who were not at home when French police executed the warrants evaded capture during this round of arrests.

The former Red Brigade members arrested are Marina Petrella, 66, Giovanni Alimonti, 65, Enzo Calvitti, 66, Roberta Cappelli, 65, and Sergio Tornaghi, 63. Petrella was convicted in the 1980 murder of Brigadier General of Italy’s national police and two of his bodyguards.

Also detained was Giorgio Petrostefani, 77, a militant from the far-left group Lotta Continua (Struggle Continues). Petrostefani was convicted of the 1972 shooting of Milan Police Chief Luigi Calabresi.

Calabresi was responsible for the death of anarchist Giuseppe Pinelli, who was thrown to his death from the 4th floor of police headquarters during interrogation. The police chief was shot three times from behind while he walked to his car.

Narciso Manenti, 63, from the Armed Cells Against Territorial Power was also arrested. Manenti was convicted of the 1979 killing of a Carabinieri police officer.

At its height in the 1970s, the Red Brigades was comprised of 400 to 500 full-time members, 1,000 members who helped periodically, and a few thousand supporters who provided funds and shelter. "
