> Towards the repeal of Bossi-Fini Law. National demonstration in Bologna.
> Towards the repeal of Bossi-Fini Law. First step: the closure of all detention centres. Struggles against detention centres have started in 1998 and stayed at the top of the movements’ agenda. Many hoped that Prodi’s government would start to change politics in migration flows management, unfortunately it did not. There are no signs of a reform of the Bossi-Fini Law and detention centres will not be abolished, they are even extending to EU borderline countries, where migrants pass through in their journey to Europe. The left wing government continued agreements by Berlusconi with Libya and cooperation with Spain, Senegal and Malta in the military surveillance of Western and Northern Africa. In Bologna, movements have been opposing ethnic jails, invaded and dismantled them. They supported migrants and they attacked businesses involved in detention-deportation chain. This is why we propose to come together for a demonstration on 3 March in Bologna to oppose the exploitation of migrants. In the name of a different Europe, where every woman and man have the right to live freely and independently from nationality, we wish to build a mobilisation that forces governments to close all detention centres, our century’s concentration camp.

> 3rd day of Migration-Related Actions
> 7 October 2006 was the 3rd Day of Migration related action directed against the denial of rights, against the criminalisation of migrants and against all immigration controls. Actions took place in more than 30 cities across Europe, Africa and North America. Activists are demanding equal rights for all migrants, the closure of all detention centers in Europe and everywhere, an end to all deportations. Further, they demand an end to the externalisation process and the uncoupling of the residence permit from the labour contract to fight 'precarity'.

> Manifestazione Verità e Giustizia per Federico Aldrovandi
> “At dawn on 25 September 2005, 18-year-old Federico Aldrovandi died, handcuffed with his face on the floor in a pool of blood during a police control. He was on his own, unarmed and without a previous criminal record…”. This is how the announcement of a demonstration to be held in Ferrara on 23 September 2006 begins. It also notes how efforts were made to discredit the youth by labelling him as a drug addict, and a violent person liable to cause himself bodily damage, and to cover up the police’s responsibility while evidence surfaced showing that he was on the receiving end of considerable violence by officers.

> Mass lone demonstration
> Hundreds of demonstrators are expected to gather in Parliament Square next Thursday to take part in a unique protest. The subject: absolutely anything. Opponents of war, fur, fees, developing world debt - whatever - will come together for what has been called a "mass lone demonstration" by its organisers. The stunt is designed to subvert the government's widely criticised ban on taking part in protests within a kilometre of parliament without prior police authorisation. Each participant is being encouraged to apply to the police for a "lone protest" licence (one demonstrator holding one placard), in the hope that the constabulary will be overrun by having to grant huge volumes of individual licences. The police cannot refuse an application made at least six days in advance.

> Magatte Mbengue was violently mistreated by police officers when she was in Madrid airport, in transit, on the way from Senegal to France in November 2005.

> Emergency Demonstration: Breaking the Spider¹s Web - End torture flights; Properly investigate the allegations
> Liberty is demanding an independent inquiry into UK assistance with CIA "torture flights" in light of the damning Council of Europe report released on the 7th June. The report concludes that CIA flights carrying terror suspects likely to face torture have been given access to UK airspace and airports. It states that there is a "spider's web" of rendition flights spun across the globe by the CIA. Since November 2005, Liberty has warned the Government that the UK will breach domestic and international law if CIA ³extraordinary rendition flights have been allowed to land and re-fuel in Britain. In response to the new findings, Liberty and Reprieve are holding an emergency demonstration to demand an end to torture flights on 25 June, the eve of the United Nations Day Against Torture. Please wear black...
