Take over the city - community struggles in Italy - Rising Free (1974)

Placard outside squatted housing in Milan, 1971
"The houses belong to us - the whole city belongs to us"

This pamphlet was produced by some people around the Rising Free bookshop in north London in 1974(?), and is concerned with community-based class struggle in Italy in 1969-73. It is largely a reprint of the article of the same name produced by Lotta Continua (also available on libcom). However, it also contains information about Italian immigrants in Germany in the early '70s, and lots of nice photos and cartoons from the same period.
