Aniversário de morte de Carlo Giuliani

No dia 20/07/2001 morria Carlo Giuliani, durante os protestos em Gênova por ocasião da reunião do G8.

A morte de Giuliani denunciou a opressão do capitalismo global, mas antes de tudo simbolizou a determinação de jovens em todo o mundo, que permancem organizando a jornada internacional da luta da juventude e da classe trabalhadora, nos protestos contra a ALCA, contra a Globalização, contra a Guerra, seja no Forum Social Mundial, seja na luta em sua fábrica ou escola.

Registramos o triste aniversário da morte de Carlo Giuliani e rendemos nossa homenagem a todos os militantes antiglobalização da Itália e de todos os países.

Logo após o confronto em Gênova, foi divulgada na internet uma música sobre Carlo.

Bands on of black, pink, white

Travelling across the night

People from every state

Witness and delegate

of Earth in its silent pain

of children in chains again

Gathered in Genoa

to mourn for our whole sick world

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

But the `crowned heads` of Italy

turned blind eyes to fascisti

letting them infiltrate,

agreeing to leash their hate

Carlo, our Labor`s son,

took action without a gun

Now crumpled beneath a sheet

His blood flows into the street

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Later the youth all slept

off shouting and tears they`d wept

Thugs crept into their lull

and woke them by cracking skulls

What of the sixty-three

savaged in Italy?

And what of the dozen more

no one`s heard from?

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Violence is not the way

they`ll hear what we have to say

They use it to twist the truth

and split apart every group

But we hold the deeper power

It`s growing with every hour

We are their economy

and we own our destiny.

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo

Viva, viva, viva Carlo
