Italian police intercept 10 envelopes containing bullets, signed by 'Armed Proletariat Movement' sent to PM Mario Monti, Silvio Berlusconi - NBC
Ten envelopes containing the bullets were intercepted by police in the southern Italian city of Lamezia. Some of the envelopes, discovered today, were addressed to the editors of major national newspapers in Italy.
Police say they have intercepted another letter bomb at the offices of Italy's tax collection agency.
The bomb was intercepted Thursday at an Equitalia office near the center of Rome.
Armed Proletarians for Communism (Italian Proletari Armati per il Comunismo or PAC) was an Italian far-left armed group founded in 1976 and disbanded three years later, during the "Years of Lead (Italy)."
Letter bombs and bullets mailed to officials have prompted Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti to warn of political violence returning to Italy.
An official with Equitalia, Italy’s tax-collection agency, was wounded in the hand and face by a letter bomb on Dec. 9, a day after Italian anarchists said they tried to target Deutsche Bank AG Chief Executive Officer Josef Ackermann with a similar device. Letters with bullets sent to Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno and Justice Minister Paola Severino were also found this week.
“Threats and intimidations represent strategies of other eras that can’t and mustn’t return,” Monti said in a Dec. 12 statement that recalled the terrorism in Italy in the 1970s and 1980s, a period of bombs and bullets dubbed the “Years of Lead” that claimed hundreds of lives.

There is a common theme in all of this "exploited by ruling classes" that is the problem right there with the whole world. Sort this out and problem resolved for a limited time.
