Turin, July 29 - Activists opposed to a major
high-speed-rail project between France and Italy were accused by
prosecutors Monday of terrorism.
The allegations by prosecutors, made for the first time
against the 'No TAV' protesters, came as they ordered searches
of their premises in Turin and Val di Susa related to protests
at construction sites in mid-July.
Police say they came under attack from stones, firecrackers
and other explosive devices when they moved to break up
protests.
Computers and mobile phones were seized during successive
raids.
Several members of the anti-TAV movement – who oppose the
cost and environmental damage of the railway between Lyon and
Turin - have already been sent to prison for 2010 protests
The activists have organized a series of protests against
the high-speed rail link throughout Italy over the last few
years.
Some have included violent clashes with police and
disruption of highway traffic.
Supporters of the link maintain that it will decrease
pollution by minimizing highway shipping and automotive
transportation.
