On March 10, 2021 police attacked the picket in front of texprint textile factory in Prato, Italy. The workers there have been fighting for over 40 days for normal working conditions and legal contracts. Six workers were hospitalized.

On the very same day in Piacenza police searched 21 Fedex-TNT workers’ flats. Against seven workers a deportation case has been opened. (Most of the warehouse workers in the region are migrants.) Two SI Cobas unionists have been put under house arrest. This action came after a successful strike at the Piacenza Fedex-TNT warehouse, won through a 13 days picket. The police had attacked the picket shooting teargas at chest height, but with the help of workers from nearby warehouses, they were able to defend themselves.
