  Free Speak inna Free World
Nettime - from Franco Berardi Bifo, Marco Jacquemet and Giancarlo Vitali, 
authors of the book TELESTREET: A Non-Regulated Imaginative Machine

In June 2002, in Bologna (Italy), OrfeoTV was born and in the following months
in various Italian cities street televisions were disseminated, giving life to
the Telestreet network.

On March 8, 2006, in the city of Padua, where the book was printed for its Italian
edition, the authors must appear before a judge in order to respond to the
accusation of defamation leveled by Federico Confalonieri.
As the head of Mediaset, feeling himself defamed by the book and thinking the
interests of his business gravely wounded (interests that, in the stock market,
will have supposedly suffered moral and material damage as a
result of the book), Confalonieri asked that the authors of said book be prosecuted
both criminally and civilly.

The owners of Mediaset and the government, who for years have accused their
adversaries of using the legal system against them, now turn to the same system
to ask it to prosecute the freedom of expression. Those who for decades have daily
gathered together millions of people in front of their uninterrupted emission of
brain-clogging electronic signals, bring to the courts the authors of a book that
speaks only of non-regulated imagination. [..]

Truth is like a river.
No matter how long you block it's path, it will find an outlet of escape.

Let us say the truth and damn the wrath of the earth.

Where there is no liberty
Humanity is at the mercy of tyranny.
