Call in solidarity with the students arrested the 6th of July in Italy 

In the night between the 5th and the 6th of July, 21 students were
arrested in a sweeping police operation. They were charged with being
involved in the mobilization of the 19th of May in Turin against the G8
University Summit. On that day more than 10,000 undergraduate and PhD
students, as well as precarious researchers, took public voice in a huge
demonstration to express another time – after the mobilizations of last
fall – their opposition to the dismantling of the public university. 

These charges are not usually cause for preventive arrest, almost two
months after the events. There is a clear disproportion between the
supposed charges and the use of a heavy juridical tool. This
disproportion risks erasing democratic principles, which must on the
contrary be reaffirmed. The twenty-one arrested – fifteen are in jail,
six under house arrest – are young students, almost all with clean

We express our indignation at the disproportion of this act for people
who have simply demonstrated their dissent. This has occurred at a time
when young students and researchers are more and more worried about the
lack of guarantees for the future and the uncertain destiny of the
public university. 

We want to affirm that we are on the side of freedom of thought and
freedom to demonstrate dissent. We think that it is not acceptable to
manage every protest as a police problem. We want to affirm again that
the university is a space of freedom, confrontation and the production
of knowledge. Through these arrests it is not possible to solve the
contradictions and the problems of the public university.
