High speed rail company to file charges against writer


Turin, September 5 - LTF, the company in charge of
building the controversail Lyon-Turin TAV high speed rail
connection, plans to file charges within the next few days
against leftwing writer and gadfly Erri De Luca, an LTF source
said on Thursday.
The charges are related to recent positions taken by De
Luca that encourage construction site "sabotage", the source
De Luca, who is an ex-militant of the 1970's radical
leftwing group Lotta Continua (Continuous Struggle), told radio
listeners on Tuesday that ''every action'' is legitimate in the
fight to prevent high speed TAV rail from being built in the
Susa Valley, between Lyons and Turin.
''If someone puts your life in danger, all you can do is
fight to the bitter end and sabotage the work. Every action is
legitimate,'' De Luca told Radio 24 on a programme called
Zanzara (Mosquito).
To a question about the use of violence against police by
militant protesters, De Luca replied,''Wounded police? For now I
think the losers are those of the valley who see their territory
raped and militarily occupied''.
Anti-TAV activists have organized a series of protests
against the high-speed rail link throughout Italy over the last
few years, some of which included violent clashes with police,
vandalism, threats and disruption of highway traffic.
