5 SEPTEMBER: CALL FOR PUBLIC ASSEMBLY AGAINST THE RE-OPENING OF THE TURIN DETENTION CENTRE
We meet again to oppose the reopening of the cpr in turin.
NO CPR (DETENTION CENTRE). NOT HERE NOR ELSEWHERE!
Over the summer, the war on freedom of movement has become even more agile and capillary. In addition to reducing the chances of obtaining refugee status by putting several states on the list of safe countries, thanks to the Cutro decree, it is now possible to open hubs and detention centres aimed at repatriations very quickly. Just in these days the Pozzallo repatriation centre comes into operation, while in Turin the via Traves hotspot – a structure used during the winter as a dormitory – has been inaugurated, which has already reached the limit of its places and has forced some dozens of people to sleep in tents.
The scenario that lies ahead is clear: every resource that claims to manage migratory flows is to be channelled solely for expulsion purposes, at any cost, even of lives themselves.
In Turin, according to the investigation published by Altraeconomia, the restructuring of the city’s CPR is being pursued.
The Corso Brunelleschi repatriation centre remains one of the key cogs in the machinery of repression, violence and discipline. Since its closure following the prisoner riots in February, renovation work is still being secretly and directly contracted out.
Shaping our opposition to these racist policies that foment war between the poor is more necessary now than ever.
Let us come together to:
– Continue to organise against the re-opening of the CPR and against the racist machinery of the state;
– Think about the context in which these policies are embedded;
– Imagine the national mobilisation from 15 to 21 September.
See you on 5 September at 6pm, under the peasants’ roof at Porta Palazzo.
