“If they signal my presence and a trial opens, I will still be happy to have been here and I will remember how nice it was to march with you and fight for the future of this valley”. Edgarda «Eddi» Marcucci yells it into the microphone during the No Tav march from Bussoleno to San Didero. The former Kurdish YPG fighter, under special surveillance by the Turin court, demonstrated despite the ban. The activist’s story and the judicial troubles were recently recalled on TV on Propaganda live by the cartoonist Zerocalcare.
An act of disobedience that Eddi claims. “I am here despite being subjected to special surveillance because I am considered dangerous – he says -. I am under special surveillance because I struggled as a student and precarious worker. Because in 2017 I joined the Ypg. I am under special surveillance because I am No Tav ».
The former foreign fighter had already violated special surveillance last March 10 to participate in a Non Una di Meno demonstration against femicides in Turin.
