Arrests in Switzerland

Urgent ELP! Bulletin (28th of April 2010)

Dear friends

A couple of weeks ago three people (one Swiss, two Italians) were arrested in
Switzerland accused of possession of explosive materials. All three are vegan and
known eco-activists.

Below is a mailout from their supporters and ELP encourages everyone to support them.

On the 15th of April Costantino, Silvia and Billy were arrested in
Switzerland under the charge of transport of explosive material and of
having tried to use it.

We affirm our absolute solidarity with them. Their identity and their
struggle is the identity and struggle of all revolutionaries, because
they fought with passion, persistency and absolute will against the
state and capitalism, who has produced wars, death, environmental
destruction, exploitation, surpression and profit for those in power.
And the control and bio- and nanotechnological development are some of
the instruments in the hands of those in power, to preserve these

There are three kinds of people: those who stand at the window and
follow what happens; those who stand at the window and comment on what

window happen.

These people - who have understood the necessity to become active to
free themselves from the chains of this society – are the
irreplaceable ones and we stand on their side.
Solidarity is our weapon!
Solidarity with Costa, Silvia and Billy!
Solidarity with Marco Camenisch!
Solidarity with all political prisoners!

At the moment Costantino is in the prison 'Amtshaus Bern', Luca is in
the prison of Thun and Silvia is in the prison of Biel.
