Roots (8.00): Luca Casarini, leader of the white overalls, arrested
Copenhagen: The second informative
meeting of Global Roots has finhished: 31 detainees in Copenhagen, among
them, 5 representatives of the Italian disobedient movement. One of
them is Luca Casarini, leader of the white overalls
Some 100-150 people have attended the second informative meeting (in
Danish and German) organized by Global Roots at 8 this morning.
They give the repression info until the moment. 25 people were arrested
during the night, for things such as refusing to be identified, to carry
sprays or even boats of paste. Toward 6 in this morning 5 representatives
of the Italian disobedient movement have been arrested, and apparently,
they will be in police dependences until Monday to be deported later
on. They were arrested by the Danish police at the frontier after refusing
to be identified. It has not still been organized any action in solidarity
with the detainees, although Italian parliamentarian have inciated contacts
with the government in support to the detainees.
Global Roots has outlined the necessity that more people adhere to the
proposal of confronting peacefully to the police in front of the building
of the Summit. "Some 40 people are needed for the first line. We
had the Italian partners but they won't be able to be there". German
anarchists and disobedients of the group Avanti has offered to be part
of the first line. At 9.30 all the assistants have left to the meeting
towards Margareta Holmen (where thousands of activists accommodate),
and later on they will go toward the Summit.
Global Roots has insisted in the symbolic and no-violent character of
the actions. "The first lines will decide how much the action will
last and in when it will finish", they pointed out. On the other
hand "we won't accept that the police surrounds us, neither that
they stop anybody in the manifestation. Likewise, we don't recommend
that in the face of provocative attitudes of the police people take
the disobedient decision of sitting down in the floor. We always intend
to stand up chaining our arms."
In relation to the virtual blockade of the web page of Global Roots,
a member of this community has declared to The Haine that "we don't
know when we will be able reestablish the web page".
