Italian police raided 34 anarchist squats and homes yesterday and arrested four people in connection to a campaign of parcel bombings which has targeted Italian officials and European politicians since December. Six others were arrested on July 20th and are still in jail. Italy has a sordid history of arresting anarchists who die "accidentally" while in custody for allegedly masterminding bombings which are later discovered to be the work of fascists and state officials.

From Colorado to Missouri anarchists, their, families, neighbors, and associates have been receiving visits from the FBI for the past week. Many believe that the activists are being questioned about their potential involvement in the Democratic Nation Convention protests in Boston and the upcoming Republican National Convention protests in New York City as a way to intimidate people and discourage their participation.
