Arson Attack Against Court in Rovereto, Italy

On the night of February 4-5, an arson attack was carried out against a court in Rovereto, Italy. One of the main entrances of the court, which permitted access to the prison police, was set on fire. A few meters away, on the wall of the old prison, the message “Freedom for all, fire to the courts” was left with spray paint.


A few days earlier, the windows of the Credito Valtellinese bank headquarters in Rovereto were smashed during the night of January 30-31. The message “No CPR - neither in Modena or elsewhere” was tagged on one of the windows. CPR or Permanent Repatriation Centers are prisons for migrants, who are frequently abused and placed in solitary confinement by the Italian state.
