Solidarity message from Italy for Black Lives Matter

Workers World received this letter from political activists in Italy.

Even though separated by great distances, we join our comrades, our brothers and sisters, in the U.S. in this difficult moment of struggle.

We have known for ourselves here in Italy, even though maybe not in the same way or extent, what it means to deal with violence from police and state authority, sworn to serve and protect, but that too many times brutalize and kill.

This is why, to contribute to the fight for justice, we dedicate a revised version of a poster we did in Italy, that was put up in the streets of Rome and Milan and other cities [showing Italian victims] a few years back, to the victims of police brutality and racism in the United States. Let it also symbolize the internationalism of our values and our struggles, because we may be in different countries, but we are all in this together. You are not alone.
