Picture 0 for Radio against Mafia, 40 Years ago
The role radio played in the struggle Italian activist Peppino Impastato, murdered by Mafia in Sicily in 1978, is reminded on the stamp Italian Post Office issued to honor the founder of a free radio station in his region, a way he stood against criminal underworld.
The stamp presents the Radio Aut logo with Impastato's thought about Information: Information means resistance. Resistance means paving the way to change". Valued 95 Euro-cents the stamps is available through Poste Italiane network (https://www.poste.it/prodotti/filatelia.html).

To understand the situation of Italy back in 1978, notice Peppino Impastato, a candidate in the Cinisi council elections for Proletarian Democracy (Democrazia proletaria, a extreme left party) was killed during the election campaign on the night of May 8–9, by a bomb. On the same day, Christian-Democrat former Prime Minister Aldo Moro's corpse was found in Rome. He was kidnapped by Brigate Rosse (Red Brigades) terrorist group 7 weeks before.
