February 11, 2011 - A small group of enemies of nuclear power raided the headquarters of Enel in Corso Regina Margherita, Torino this morning. Banner, megaphone and leaflets to highlight the complicity of the company with the return of nuclear energy in Italy (if anything of it had gone) and in solidarity with Guido and Arturo, in prison for trying to block a radioactive train. Having moved around far and wide inside the premises, and also interrupted a big meeting that was being held inside, the protesters calmly left.

This afternoon at Porta Susa [Turin]an anti-nuclear demo was held in solidarity with the arrested comrades.
Table and leafletting from 12 to 13.30, when the participants [about eighty, not only from Piedmont] * try * to move, going on to a tram. Immediately the Digos [political police] tell the driver to halt the tram. Then come the riot police [about one hundred and twenty!] to surround the comrades who in the meantime get off the tram. A quick move in the direction of the metro causes a reaction of the cops who surround the group. The police get orders to hold their position and impose a militarised march [sandwich effect], escorted by about twenty trucks, traffic wardens and the essential [?!?] little GTT [Turin transport?] man. To cries of "Guido and Arturo free" and "Don't let them poison you, refuse nuclear power", one walked reinforced along Corso San Martino, Corso Prince Eugene, via Cigna, Lungo Dora Naples, Via Borgo Dora to the Balon square [street market]from which the troops stayed away.
