US DRIVE BACK BY FIGHTING THIS FURTHER ACT
INTIMIDATION AGAINST IMMIGRANT WORKERS
the morning of last 18th September at 6:45, in Rome, officers
of “carabinieri” and “guardia di finanza” have heavily searched at
Dhumcatu’s head office for 4 hours. The pretext was that of
investigating on “international terrorism”. In the meantime, the
policemen also searched at the residences of many members of Dhumcatu. The
policemen took away from Dhumcatu’s head office some computer hard disks
and all the paper files regarding stay-permit demands and work trials of
hundreds of immigrants. The office was turned upside down. A case
containing clothes was broken with a sledgehammer.

workers in Rome. Its members are people from Bangladesh, Pakistan, India
and other countries. Dhumcatu has contributed to found the “Committee of
migrants to Italy”. It has been fighting for years to defend
immigrants’ rights, first against the Turco-Napolitano law, and than
against the Bossi-Fini law. Dhumcatu is fighting against the wars of
robbery and oppression that western countries wage against the peoples of
the South of the World. Dhumcatu also fights side by side with Italian
workers to defend the “articolo 18”.
action against Dhumcatu should be seen in the framework of a more general
campaign of hate and racism, both institutional and extra-institutional,
which has been rising for years in Italy and in all the Western countries.
This racist campaign is directed mainly against Islamic immigrants and
keeps pace with the Western aggression against the masses of the “Third
actions and this policy aim to:
strong reaction against all that and against this further act of
intimidation is necessary! Let us loudly say that the real danger for
Italian workers does not come from immigration, but from capitalism with
is rules and its insatiable thirst for profit and money!
