      Come avvocato di fiducia di Marco Camenisch le communico la seguente
      dichiarazione del mio cliente:

      "Di nuovo a Pf�ffikon a partire dal mio arrivo il 22/01/2002 non
      sono pi� in
      regime di isolamento e di deprivazione totale, bens� nelle stesse
      giudiziarie come prima del mio trasferimento a Thorberg. Fino ad oggi
      24/01/2003 l'ufficio responsabile del cantone dei Grigioni non ha
      ordinato a
      questo carcere delle specifiche condizioni di detenzione. La mia
      in loco � provvisoria e si presume giorni o settimane, finch�
      responsabile dei Grigioni non ha trovato altra destinazione.
      ignoto � il regime di detenzione futuro.
      Dato che la mia iniziativa non comprende esclusivamente la mia
      personale ma � anche una iniziativa solidale di resistenza e priva di
      specifiche richieste ovviamente continua, anche se ridotta alla
      durata di
      venti giorni, nella speranza di non essere costretto a riprendere
      iniziative specifiche contro il futuro regime di detenzione.
      Saluti solidali, marco Pf-24/01/2002"

        > Cruelty-free Retail: Can we Shop Our way to Animal Liberation?
        > By Adam Weissman
        > In a word, no.
        > As people of conscience have questioned the cruelty and suffering
        > built into the products we consume, a burgeoning industry has arisen
        > to fulfill this niche market. In return, vegetarians, vegans, and
        > other socially conscious consumers have embraced these "guilt-free"
        > products with open arms as a solution, the only drawback to which is
        > that they have not been universally embraced by the general public.
        > One national animal rights leader has even said that the most
        > important development towards animal liberation is the advent of
        > "packaged vegan convenience foods."
        > But are we betraying the questioning spirit that led many of us to
        > challenge the impact of our purchases in the first place?
        > The concept of the "cruelty-free" product denies a fundamental and
        > unavoidable reality. Exploitation is woven into every level of every
        > activity of our civilization, which was built upon, and continues to
        > exist through, the subjugation of the earth and animals-human and
        > non-and where productive activity is designed to produce economic
        > growth and transform our living planet into capital.
        > We can look at almost any "cruelty-free" product and find massive
        > amounts of exploitation in its production, even if it abstains from
        > exploitation in one or two significant (and heavily advertised) ways.
        > Take a pack of Tofu Pups for example, an alternative to hot dogs and
        > a favorite of people who abstain from flesh-eating, but wish to enjoy
        > some of the comfort foods from their past.
        > For starters, we can look at the growing of the soybeans used.
        > Vegetarians and vegans have been horrified-and rightfully so-by the
        > atrocity of raising and slaughtering animals for consumption, but in
        > the process, many have turned a blind eye to the exploitation and
        > suffering involved in raising crops.
        > The creation of farmland involves the destruction of wildlife habitat
        > and natural ecosystems, whether this means logging a forest or simply
        > threshing land for crop rows and loosened soil. Animal species and

        > According to the July 15, 2002 issue of Time Magazine, Oregon State
        > University's Steven Davis "has found evidence that suggests that the
        > unseen losses of field animals are very high. One study documented
        > that a single operation, mowing alfalfa, caused a 50 percent
        > reduction in the gray-tailed vole population. Mortality rates
        > increase with every pass of the tractor to plow, plant, and harvest."
        > Those animals who survive, attempt to subsist by consuming the crops
        > that have replaced the native plants. For this act of survival, they
        > are considered "agricultural pests." As punishment, they are hunted;

        > "pest" species.
        > The work of maintaining these lands is handled by some of the most
        > severely exploited workers on the planet. The veganism of grapes,
        > cucumbers, tomatoes, and strawberries does nothing to address the
        > horrible exploitation of the farm workers who sow, till, fertilize,
        > apply pesticides, and harvest crops.
        > According to the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, conditions for farm
        > workers in the U.S. include: strenuous and often deforming physical
        > labor in hazardous working conditions; average earnings far below

        > poorest health conditions, including elevated rates of infectious and
        > chronic diseases, malnutrition, and infant and maternal mortality.

        > Before agriculture, before industry, even before the advent of the
        > ritual hunt, (I suggest reading Jim Mason's book An Unnatural Order
        > on this point), humans provided for themselves through direct
        > communion with nature's bounty, foraging for fruits, nuts, seeds,

        > product. People consumed to meet their needs, with little opportunity
        > for waste or overconsumption. The only "producer" was Earth itself.
        > Humans existed as equals with other animals and the environment, not
        > as owners, conquerors, "stewards," or destroyers.
        > In the context of an economic system that views animals and the earth
        > as raw materials, humanity as a market, and disease and warfare as
        > opportunities for profit, a growing number of people are stepping
        > outside of the conventional economy and reconnecting to our species'
        > forager roots. Some, like naturalist Wildman Steve Brill, author of
        > Identifying and Harvesting Edible and Medicinal Plants in Wild (and
        > Not-So-Wild) Places and The Wild Vegetarian Cookbook, are
        > rediscovering and educating others on wild, noncultivated plants as a
        > food source.
        > Many more look at the waste generated by mass production and survive
        > by consuming the enormous amount of resources discarded every single
        > day. Variously referred to as urban foragers, dumpster divers,
        > scavengers, or freegans, these people are able to live without
        > financially contributing to exploitative systems while at the same
        > time taking a small bite out of the waste stream.
        > Urban foragers rarely, if ever, need to shop, providing for such
        > basic necessities as food and clothing through the discards of
        > retailers, factories, and households. Some, known as "squatters,"
        > find, restore, and inhabit abandoned buildings, providing rent-free
        > housing. Through this lifestyle, the forager can escape the cycle of

        > bosses to purchase consumables that they believe they need. They can
        > devote their time to defending the earth and its inhabitants, instead

        > Despite its noble intentions, foraging is a hard sell-turned stomachs
        > and upturned noses are an initial reaction of many upon first hearing
        > that people consume trash by choice. The ideology of consumerism says
