18 pro-migrant anarchists indicted for French border squats

(ANSA) – TURIN, MAR 23 – Some 18 Italian anarchists and
anticapitalists were indicted in Turin Tuesday for setting up
illegal pro-migrant squats on the Italian-French border.
    The group, which calls itself “Brisez Les Frontieres” (Break
down the borders), will stand trial beginning October 5, a
preliminary hearings judge ruled.
    Prosecutors have charged the squatters with breach of domicile
for occupying a church at Claviere, which they turned into the
Chez Jesus refuge, and for invading a stone house once used by
crossborder workers at Oulx.
    The group helped migrants, who are sometimes found shoeless in
deep snow, cross the border into France.
    They operated in the Upper Val di Susa.
    A 19th defendant has asked for an alternative trial. (ANSA).
