The FreakNet MediaLab denounces the serious intimidations that the italian postal police, on 
September 29th 2000, against the participants to the netstrike of September 28, 2000

During the netstrike more than 1 hundred persons were connected for 3 hours to the webserver of 
the town council of the city of Milano to protest against the hard attitude of the 
council towards the sub-culture movements, an attitude that has brought on the violent removal of 
local squats  andt he selfmanaged hostel METROPOLIX - which was shut down 
by the police the 17th of september 2000.

On the 29th of september, the day after the netstrike, the postal police arbitrarily 
came to the work places of some of the participants and it has picked up information about 
 the private life of these people. Someone has also been forced to revoke the 
registration from the mailing-list, fundamental list of 
discussion and organization of individuals and groups that operate for the 
rights of the electronic frontier. 

We are expecting measures to be taken by magistracy against these 
public officials that operate in the total contempt of the rules. If the 
magistracy will not intervene, we wish that a serious form of dissent 
strikes against those who abuse of his/her/its own power. It is clear that 
hacktivist will always know how to react.
