Italia: Le grinfie di ENI e SNAM sul gasdotto che attraverserà l’Appennino [it]

La vicenda del gasdotto che ENI e SNAM vogliono erigere lungo tutta la catena appenninica è pressoché sconosciuta anche fra coloro che lottano contro la civilizzazione e contro le mostruosità con cui il capitalismo ogni giorno avvelena le nostre vite.

Vorremmo cominciare a parlare di questo tema, non per fare la solita lagna cittadinista, ma per stimolare la giusta rabbia.

A rendere difficile la trattazione dell’argomento ci hanno pensato i “capoccioni” della Snam che contribuiscono a fare confusione. In effetti questo “coso” non ha nemmeno un nome. L’appellativo istituzionale dell’opera è Rete Adriatica. Un nome ufficiale che non dice nulla, dato che il gasdotto passerà per l’Appennino e non per il mare. Non che se fosse passato altrove sarebbe stato meglio, per quanto ci riguarda. Per rovesciare la mistificazione in piena neo lingua orweliana che gli stregoni del metano cercano di instillare, pensiamo sia giusto chiamare il “coso” gasdotto Snam, così che sia chiaro sin da subito chi sono i responsabili di un’opera tanto nefasta. Il potere non è qualcosa di fantasmagorico, ci sono i responsabili: hanno un nome e un indirizzo. Nel caso di specie si chiamano ENI, la multinazionale della morte che in tutto il mondo innalza la bandiera dell’italico imperialismo, e SNAM, la grande ditta nazionale che si occupa delle arterie energetiche con cui alimentare la mega macchina industriale nella Penisola.

Rome [Italy]: Explosive Attack Against a Carabinieri Police Station by Santiago Maldonado Cell / FAI-FRI (07/12/2017) [en]

In times of social peace and compliance there is no better reply than action. A stimulus, a continuity and a jolt to wake up those who sleep.

Acting on one’s own initiative breaks the compliance and inaction and ignites those whose blood boils.

The anarchic praxis of attack must be the basic stimulus of anarchy, otherwise it is a walking dead. Action is necessary to make us alive in the ways we consider opportune, removed from every program, hierarchical and vertical structure. Many revolutionary practices are part of an anarchism in its bowels.

Roma [Italia]: Cellula Santiago Maldonado/FAI-FRI rivendica l’attacco esplosivo contro caserma dei carabineri (07/12/2017) [it]

In tempi di pace sociale e di attendismo non c’è migliore risposta che l’azione. Uno stimolo, una continuità e uno scossone per svegliare chi dorme.

Agire di propria iniziativa rompe l’attendismo e l’immobilità e incendia coloro a cui ribolle il sangue.

La prassi anarchica dell’attacco deve essere lo stimolo base dell’anarchia, altrimenti è un morto che cammina. Un agire necessario a renderci vivi nei modi che riteniamo opportuni, fuori da ogni programma, struttura gerarchica e verticistica. Una tante pratiche rivoluzionarie sono parte dell’anarchismo nelle sue viscere.

Italy: Sripta Manent trial (started on 16/11/2017) — Statement to the court by anarchist Alfredo Cospito [en]

(translated by act for freedom now!)


On 16/11/2017 the SCRIPTA MANENT trial began inside the bunker courtroom of ‘Le Vallette’ prison in Turin. Imprisoned anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito read a long declaration. Alfredo was not present in court as he was subjected to video conferencing from inside the AS2 unit in the prison of Ferrara.

Declaration to the Court:


Benevento 14th August 1878- Turin 16th 2017

Malefactors on trial

The Union of Egoists is your instrument, it is the sword with which you increase your natural strength; the Union exists thanks to you. Society, on the other hand, demands much from you and it exists without you; in short, society is sacred, Union is yours; society uses you, the Union–you use it – Stirner

Prigione di Fleury-Mérogis [Francia]: Krèm in isolamento (18/11/2017) [it]

Nel caso dell’incendio della volante di Quai de Valmy, andato a sentenza lo scorso settembre, due persone sono rimaste in detenzione. Una di questi, Kara è stata rilasciata martedì 14 novembre. L’altro, ancora in custodia, è stato messo da sabato in Sezione Disciplinare (il buco) di Fleury-Mérogis.

Sabato 18 novembre al mattino, i secondini entrarono nella sua cella. Gli chiesero di fare i bagagli per cambiare piano, in un momento in cui andava d’accordo con il suo co-detenuto, aveva appena avuto accesso allo sport e aveva finito solo allora di pulire la disgustosa cella in cui era arrivato alcuni giorni prima. Lo spostamento avrebbe significato ricominciare tutto da capo. Per questo rifiutò. Venne quindi portato con la forza da diversi secondini al buco. Questo lunedì è stato presentato alla commissione disciplinare. Accusato di “violenza fisica contro un membro del personale”, “ha rifiutato di sottomettersi a una misura di sicurezza”, è stato condannato a 20 giorni di buco, di cui 6 sospesi.

Alfredo Cospito
Ready or Not... [en]

In these three years I was faced with choices which led me by the hand through a path fraught with crossroads and bifurcations.

Like on a minefield, I had to decide carefully where to step, with my pride and my self-respect at stake. The first choice I had to face with was whether I should continue to contribute, or let the prison overflow me, patiently waiting to get out. As limited as my situation is, I chose to continue to contribute through the written word. Once I made this decision I faced another crossroad: whether to confine myself — ecumenically — from this “high point” of my “status” (sic.) of a “revolutionary” prisoner — to bestowing blessings in each directions, applauding to every anarchist practice, paying attention not to make any enemies; or to use the weapon of critique, ever more harshly, trying to outline some analysis, to open some discourses. I chose the easier way (at least for me): openly push my critique to the extremes, at the cost of isolation (less letters, less information, less generic solidarity).

Italy: Statement of anarchist comrade Gioacchino Somma — Start of the “Script Manent” trial (16/11/2017) [en]

To the Court of Turin

Today, as well as for all the future hearings of this trial that sees me accused along with my brothers, sisters, but above all anarchist comrades, I will not give you the satisfaction of seeing my face in a courtroom of this tribunal.

I have never gone to the courtrooms where my funeral was being prepared in the past and I will not do so now!

I am anarchist, individualist, anti-authoritarian and above all I am for the insurrection, which has as one of its primary goals that of destroying places of death like this one and the prisons.

Italy: Text by anarchist comrade Afredo Cospito from Ferrara prison (2016) [en]

With 30 years of charges on my back, it may seem absurd to feel the need to communicate projects and considerations. With the insistent censorship that distorts everything I write and say, it may seem stupid and mad to continue to resolutely communicate and write considerations lending themselves to censorship. I need such stupidity and madness to feel still alive and participating.
I have only one choice, back to the wall: continuing struggling, continuing with every means at my disposal.

I got inspiration to write this text from the prosecutor Sparagna [in charge for Scripta Manent]; in his solitary “interlocutory — monologue” he claimed with ill-concealed embarrassment that he got us by process of elimination, by the “scorched earth” that the anarchist movement in Italy made around us. Is it possible that the anarchist movement here in Italy sank so low as to not feel empathy with comrades caught in a grip of repression, to think of us as a foreign body?
The truth can not be found in the “specious” and stupid logic of a prosecutor from Turin. The truth is hidden in the folds, in different expressions of solidarity that have been addressed to us, in the opportunity that even a wave of repression such this one could give us. This is apparent from many actions expressing solidarity across the globe to us, this is apparent from a few but significant solidarity statements that we received. At first glance these statements may seem like the usual solidarity for appearances’ sake, but at my eyes they become fully meaningful.
Maybe because of their origins, comrades with different projects, despite everything, were profoundly, directly, touched. Maybe because all these comrades are in some way part of this anarchism of praxis that keeps anarchy alive and kicking, and well reacting across the globe. For this and for many other reasons, those words of solidarity are no small things and can become an opportunity, especially if they can go beyond the repressive matter.

Italy: Declaration of anarchist comrades Claudia and Stefano facing Trial as a result of Operation ”Scripta Manent” (16/11/2017) [en]

We find ourselves facing you in order to be judged. Guilty or innocent? But what are we accused of? In the thousands of pages produced by the prosecutor, over twenty years’ history of anarchist struggle in Italy are covered and not only, specific facts are mentioned to back up suppositions and conjecture, but in fact what do you want to convince yourselves of with all that mountain of paper? You want to convince yourselves that we are anarchists. That we don’t passively accept the system that governs us, the inevitability of man’s domination over man and nature. They are asking you to condemn the love that unites the human beings who share the unstoppable desire for freedom bound by their common contempt for authority. If that’s why we are here let’s put an end to this farce before it begins. We are guilty.

Genoa [Italy]: Incendiary attack (18/11/2017) [en]

GENOA:

There is a lot of anger, and sometimes a little is enough for it to turn into fire.

Anger and fire go together and do not wait for field days to show themselves, they strike rich and poor alike as happened at the Genoa G8 or the Hamburg G20, showing their best face at such times.

Fire and anger just act, they don’t prepare the ground for revolution, they’re not looking for adepts among the masses, they look sadly at a society that has nothing left to ask of its very existence.

Fire and anger: the first an element, the second a feeling, it takes little to get them to wed, just a little courage, then they let out a scream that pierces the cloak of apathy which this dying society is now drenched in and addicted to.

Oggi, così come per tutte le future udienze di questo processo che mi vede imputato insieme ai miei fratelli, sorelle ma soprattutto compagni anarchici, non vi donerò la soddisfazione di vedere la mia faccia in un’aula di questo tribunale.

Italia: “Scripta Manent” – Comunicati di solidarietà (11/2017) [it]

Rete Evasioni – Libertà per tutti i compagni e tutte le compagne coinvolt* nell’operazione “Scripta Manent”

La data d’inizio del primo grado del processo contro i compagni e le compagne coinvolt* nell’operazione “Scripta Manent” è stata fissata al prossimo 16 novembre.

Il processo si basa, così come evidente dal nome dato all’operazione, in migliaia di atti ossessivamente accumulati dall’accusa, che per l’occasione ha nome Sparagna. Ossessione zelante, certo, ma anche strategia già vista in precedenza: una così enorme quantità di atti può solo significare avere in mano ben poca cosa rispetto a quelle che sono le fantomatiche evidenze utili ai fini di un’incriminazione certa.
