> 6th memorial protest and new trial for Oury Jalloh in Dessau
> On January 7th, 2005 Oury Jalloh burnt with his hands and feet tied in a police cell in Dessau. The trial against the accused police man ended with acquit in December 2008. On demand of the Initiative in remembrance of Oury Jalloh the incidental action contradicted against the verdict at the federal court (Bundesgerichtshof, BGH) - rightly. (...) The BGH decided therefore that the trial against one of the accused police men has to start again because the family of the victim has the right to get a legal procedure. Before the trial starts on January 12 there will be demonstrations in Dessau (7 January) and Magdeburg (8 January)

> Aprite gli archivi di stato, verita sulle stragi
> Following recent acquittals in the trial into a bombing in Brescia dating back to the years of lead, an appeal signed by 30,000 people in only a few days, calls for the removal of the "State secret" on all relevent documents held by state bodies. In application of the law that reformed the intelligence services and the regime on state secrets (n.124 of 3 August 2007), its use elapses after thirty years, and must either be removed or renewed. As it is one of a number of tragedies that have marked Italy's history and remain unexplained, often due to silence and cover-ups over key events, the appeal calls for the relevant commission to show a "political will" to clarify them, describing the possibility of state secrets being renewed in these matters as "unacceptable".

> Norwegian crackdown: fatti e note a margine
> On 6 November 2010, the Autistici Inventati (A/I) ISP which hosts mailboxes and a number of activist discussion groups, informed its users that an Italian investigation had resulted in all the data on its Norwegian servers being seized in an operation by the Norwegian police. It stressed that "even though A/I is not directly implicated" all our user's data (mostly encrypted) have been acquired by someone who, at most, had a warrant to conduct one specific search". They argued that the Italian postal police has a bad "habit" of "rummaging through hundreds or thousands of people's data, even just to find a single e-mail", adding that the operation was "unnecessary" because they had already found that the information that was sought did not exist when they were asked to provide it. This later statement provides further details on the operation, which is described as an act of political intimidation.

> Recurso Especial de Proteccion dos Direitos Fundamentais da Persoa
> A complaint filed by esculca to complain about the operative and security measures to be enacted in Santiago de Compostela's historical centre with a view to the Pope's visit on 6 November 2010. The basis for the complaint before the administrative court, which calls for the measures to be suspended, are violations of the right to freedom of movement, the right to artistic production and the right of reunion. The complaint concerns operative measures adopted by the city council that "limit movement, restrict access to public spaces, prevent peaceful reunion in public places and forbid artistic activities in the streets". Moreover, the Movemento polos Direitos Civis (MpDC) has criticised police operations (including home searches) that are being carried against people who display banners opposing the visit.
