Subject: Genoa, 21-22 july 2001: dossier about violations of civil and human rights

Genoa, 21 - 22 july 2001
dossier about violations of civil and human rights

This dossier contains documentation about the night between the 21 and the 22 july 2001, when in Genoa the Indipendent Media Center was aggressed by the police under unjustified circumstances, provoking many injuries, arresting people and destroying hardware and documentation about the Global Social Forum and the AntiG8 initiatives there organized.

This dossier wants to explicitly address the basic violations of civil and human rights made by the italian government in charge in the 2001 by witnessing the events of one long night in genova thru various documents publicly available at that time and reachable thru various media.

The antig8 archive aims to gather information in a way as more reproducible as possible, being easy to mirror and to mantain, able to survive to the natural decay of webservers and weblinks: spreaded and time resistant information becomes impossible to censor and to localize, while representing a complete dossier addressing an important historical event, in the consciousness that - politically speaking - the memory of such events being documented here is the most hard and important thing to keep fresh thru time.

This dossier is a tribute to the freedom of speech, and to the work that many people in italy as in the rest of the world is doing to keep it intact.
