Systematic Torture by the Italian Police - Eddie Yuen
One of the most disturbing things going on is beatings and torture of
prisoners. People being released now are leaving the jails covered in
blood, with tales of being forced to stand for as long as 12 hours in
groups and being beaten if they attempted to sit. Police spit in their
face, threatened to kill them and told them that they had called their
parents and told them they were dead. This has all been reported on
Italian radio this morning. There are approximately 200 people
unaccounted for, so it is very important for activists to find out if
all of their comrades are safe, since the police have been committing
their worst atrocities when they feel no one is watching. Among the
unaccounted for are several reported fatalities and at least 2 women
said to be in comas which the media has stopped reporting. Some
people think that the government will only release the injured when
they don't look as brutalized and announce the dead when the situation
has "cooled off".
