A graphic novel by Christian Mirra

"The book is an unquestionable denounce. It's gut-wrenching, since you can't pretend it's fiction or fantasy. But it's also a masterpiece, showing  the effectiveness of graphic novels"

IL MATTINO

"Maybe only through direct experience one can overcome prejudices, and understand the seriousness of facts. Reaching the ragged edge, looking down. Falling in. He [Christian Mirra] did."

IL VENERDI DI REPUBBLICA


This graphic novel tells a true story, described by Amnesty International as"The biggest violation of democratic rights in a Western Country after World War II" 

On july 21 2001 the author was sleeping in the Diaz School after the G8 demostrations in Genova. In the middle of the night, riot policemen entered the school and started beating up everyone with extreme brutality.

Of the 93 people found in the school, 72 were severely injured, and all were imprisoned with the accusation of being a group of dangerous anarchists who caused the riots in Genoa during the demonstration.

Later investigations showed that the police had used false proof to incriminate the victims of the blitz. (Read the full story on The Guardian)
