Night of revolt in the detention centre (CIE) of Ponte Galeria in Rome
During the night between 29-30 March, immigrants without papers locked up in the identification and expulsion centre in Ponte Galeria in Rome rebelled, denouncing among other things the way they were treated, « like dogs ». Fires started, destruction, occupation of the roofs, clashes with the forces of repression that turned up en masse in anti-riot gear, the revolt lasted nearly all night. Newspapers talk of thousands of euros damage, today the prison is without water or electricity.
..This morning prisoners were divided into "good" and "bad". Among the bad about fifteen men who had been filmed on cctv camers were chosen and apparently taken to another ofthe many categories of prison that exist in Italy. They could be brought to trial very quickly.
Meanwhile, this afternoon, in the women's wing where it seems that women are completely knocked out by sleeping pills and other chemical straightjackets mixed in their food, the situation was calm, the nth deportation charter for Nigeria has begun and a number of Nigerian were taken away.
Solidarity without borders and freedom for everybody with or without papewrs!
