Italy: About the struggle of comrade Davide Delogu, Sardinian anarchist prisoner of the Italian State [en]

A few days ago we published on the website of Croce Nera Anarchica news about the attempted prison escape carried out by Sardinian anarchist comrade Davide Delogu, which ended with the machine-guns of the guards pointed to his face. We learned about this news from the phone call that Davide is making weekly with his family.
Davide informs us that he is in total isolation from May 1st and, that the article 14bis will be re-applied against him (six months of constant isolation with censorship imposed on his entire correspondence).
This escape attempt — Davide explains in a personal letter to me, with a document attached — is a Direct Action, part of the campaign for self-liberation, which he decided to launch with the act of May 1st.
Unconditional support to all anarchist comrades who, without regards, fight with dignity.
Support to the hunger strike of imprisoned anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito.
Support to the anarchist revolutionary choices of Sardinian anarchist comrade Davide Delogu.
Complicity and affinity with anarchist comrades, editors of the anarchist journal Vetriolo, who expressed their solidarity to Alfredo Cospito a few days ago.

COMMUNIQUE OF IMPRISONED ANARCHIST COMRADE DAVIDE DELOGU:

Prison and Brucoli [district of Augusta, Sardinia], April 25th 2017
Loose Cannon (... Maybe...)
We are anarchists in prison, some for years, some less, and we daily fight the war against domination, face-to-face with the enemy, inside their cages. We share the refusal and the disdain, clashing with the prison authority and its bareaucratic [play on words with bars and bureaucratic] discipline every day.
Therefore, we are cannons that are not loose (for now...), whose explosions, as the recent and the past acts teach, create disruption, material damage and the shattering of prison logic (that, as anarchist, has already been destroyed!). Sending certainly a vital stimulus of action inside a complex desolate swamp, to live your own anarchy, right here, right now, immediately!
Continuing to live like a cannon that is not loose (... maybe...) , I open with the acts a campaign (for those who want to accept it, otherwise I will do it alone, like I always did) of self-liberation, that will

Italia: Sulla lotta del compagno Davide Delogu, anarchico sardo prigioniero dell’Italia Stato [it]

É di pochi giorni fa la notizia da noi pubblicata sul sito di Croce Nera Anarchica, del tentativo di evasione messo in atto dal compagno anarchico sardo Davide Delogu, conclusosi con i mitra delle guardie puntati sulla sua faccia. Abbiamo appreso la notizia dalla telefonata che Davide svolge settimanalmente con la sua famiglia.
Davide ci comunica che si trova in isolamento totale dal primo maggio, e che gli verrà applicato nuovamente il 14bis (sei mesi di isolamento costante con l’applicazione della censura su tutta la corrispondenza).
Questo tentativo di evasione, spiega Davide in una lettera personale nei miei confronti a cui ha allegato anche un documento, è una Azione Diretta parte della campagna per l’autoliberazione che ha deciso di lanciare con i fatti il primo maggio.
Supporto incondizionato a tutti i compagni anarchici e le compagne anarchiche, che senza riguardo, si battono dignitosamente.
Supporto allo sciopero della fame del compagno anarchico prigioniero Alfredo Cospito.
Supporto alle scelte anarchiche rivoluzionarie del compagno anarchico sardo Davide Delogu.
Complicità e affinità con i compagni anarchici della redazione del giornale anarchico Vetriolo, che pochi giorni addietro si sono espressi in solidarietà ad Alfredo Cospito.
Sempri pro s’anarkia! Sempri Ainnantis!

COMUNICATO DEL DENUTO ANARCHICO COMPAGNO DAVIDE DELOGU:

Presoni e Brucoli, 25 Aprile 2017

MINE NON VAGANTI (...FORSE...)
Siamo Anarchici in galera, chi da anni, chi da meno, e combattiamo quotidianamente la guerra contro la dominazione, faccia a faccia col nemico, dentro le loro gabbie. Conviviamo il rifiuto e il disprezzo, scontrandoci con l’autorità carceraria e il suo disciplinamento sbarrocratico ogni giorno.
Siamo perciò mine che non vagano (per ora...), le cui deflagrazioni, come i fatti recenti e passati insegnano, creano scompiglio, danni materiali e la frantumazione della logica carceraria (che in quanto anarchici è già stata demolita!). Trasmettendo certamente importanti stimoli vitali d’azione all’interno di una complessa palude desolante, per viversi la propria anarchia, qui, ora, subito!
Nel mio continuare a viverla come

Italy: Anarchist journal “Vetriolo” — Solidarity with imprisoned anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito on hunger strike (05/05/2017) [en]

On May 3th, the anarchist Alfredo Cospito — prisoner in high security regime AS2 of Ferrara prison for the kneecapping of Adinolfi, CEO of Ansaldo Nucleare, and recently recipient of another arrest warrant for the operation “scripta manent” — started a ten-days hunger strike against the censorship that blocks most of his incoming and outgoing correspondence. Alfredo is asking comrades to send lot of books, magazines, letters to support his hunger strike and break the isolation dictated by prison censorship.
The prosecutor Sparagna from Turin is imposing the censor against the comrades imprisoned for operation “scripta manent”. In the last few months the censorship has become more stringent, and a lot of correspondence is systematically censored and blocked; books, magazines and any kind of stuff sent him almost never reach the destination. The censor struck also a text that Alfredo sent us in December, to be published in “Vetriolo”. In the same way an Anna’s text, for another publication, was seized in January. At the same time, not one single copy of our journal reached Alfredo and other prisoners: seized by guards, or frequently simply disappeared.
It is clear that if isolation against comrades becomes more intense and so pressing is also, and above all, because of the censorship and the blocking of correspondence. It is clear that the power can not tolerate that comrades contribute to the discussion between rebellious and enemies of authority. The miserable work of spying and the censorship are systematically intensified because the power presumes and imagines that it can annihilates and silences the anarchists in its prisons.
It is necessary therefore make a brief analysis of this odious tool of

Italy: “For a Dangerous June” (05/05/2017) [en]

A text that sums up the ideas expressed during the meetings ‘With our heads held high’

State repression is the most important part of the system of dominion and one of its most disgraceful expressions; it doesn’t surprise us that those who are struck most are historically those who don’t let themselves be recuperated by the system of power, i.e. anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities.
The latter respond to the physical, psychological, moral, social and economic repression unleashed by all the components of democratic power and to the brutal indiscriminate violence of its armed hands and the judiciary. This they do with direct action aimed at those responsible for repression, with the creative and liberating destruction of the places of dominion and the sabotage of its infrastructures, so as to put an end, or at least hamper, the causes of exploitation and oppression by human beings on other human beings, the earth and animals.
In the view of total liberation, to passively watch the reproduction of dominion means to be accomplices, so there are those who continue to hold their heads high and rebel.
As a consequence power puts all its strategies into action, and the trials and proceedings against comrades for actions, episodes of conflictuality and writings still continue. Next month there will be the cassation trial concerning so-called operation Shadow, where a number of comrades are accused, among other things, of instigation to commit a crime following the publication of the paper KNO3.
These judicial proceedings are an expression of the war that the authorities are waging on the bond between thought and action, which is the foundation of anarchism’s dangerousness. Beyond individual and specific struggles, this police operation aims at striking the cardinal concepts of antiauthoritarian ideas and methods such as direct action, refusal of delegating and solidarity.
Starting from these reflexions, during the meetings that developed after the arrests of operation Scripta Manent, rather than dwell on the strategies of repression, we felt it necessary to not reduce solidarity to the technical support of those who are in prison, but to widen the spectrum of our analysis.
In this respect, we discussed how solidarity is

Prison of Ferrara [Italy]: Anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito on 3rd day of hunger strike — “Break The Isolation!” (05/05/2017) [en]

From a letter received yesterday, May 4th 2017, we learn that the hunger strike carried on from May 3rd, which will go on for 10 days, following the heavy censorship, is a result of an extended period and of continual block of most incoming and outgoing letters, books, news etc. sent him by so many comrades.
Especially, he writes, the letters sent him from one of us, editors of C.N.A. [Anarchist Black Cross], have all been blocked, 7 out of 7, in the last month.
In this letter of just few lines it is highlighted that the censorship has already been extended for another three months more than a month ago, but it started to hammering heavier than usual after the investigation has been closed.
From what he says, also in this letter, in Rebibbia [prison in Rome] is even worse.

He concludes the letter with a shout: “BREAK THE ISOLATION!”

Prison of Ferrara [Italy]: Anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito on hunger strike (03/05/2017) [en]

Today anarchist prisoner Alfredo Cospito begins a ten-days hunger strike against the censorship imposed to him by prosecutor Sparagna [in charge of op. “Scripta Manent”], which blocks almost the whole incoming and outgoing correspondence.

Alfredo asks all comrades outside to send books, magazines, letters and printed materials in general, in protest and in support of his strike.

A couple of week ago the investigations concerning the op. Scripta Manent were closed, so now the preliminary hearing is awaited, when the judge will decide whether to put on trial the suspected comrades.

Prison of Latina [Italy] – A letter from anarchist comrade Anna Beniamino [en]

SCRIPTA MANENT

The prosecution in Turin have decided to put an entire anarchist tendency on trial: anti-organisation Anarchism. This isn’t a sensationalist and defensive overstatement, it’s what Turin’s investigating judge, Anna Ricci, enacted with the arrest warrants issued in July 2016, and enforced in September, probably to avoid disrupting the summer holidays of some pubic official.
The inquisitors’ choice is clear from the ridiculous framework that appeared in the arrest warrant papers, a product of the deleterious encounter between the mind of some cop and the rushed reading of a wikipedia summary. The framework gives shape to a repressive-Manichean vision of a ‘social anarchy’, a good and harmless one, and an (anti-social and anti-classist) ‘individual anarchy’, violent and palatable to repression, whose method is the ‘anti-organization model’.
By making the necessary distinctions, this framework aims to define a specific camp, to create a cage, so that from a generic ‘insurrectionism’, (a sub-product of the anti-organization model), always violent and liable to punishment to varying degrees, sub-species can be pulled out to form different strands of the investigation[1] for Italian cops: ‘classic insurrectionism’, ‘social insurrectionism’, ‘eco insurrectionism’ and the ‘informal anarchist federation’.
That different tensions and tendencies exist within Anarchism is a fact, but it’s also true that this type of rigid categorisation is an inherent feature of the mindset and requirements of the inquisitors, who are set on delineating a specific area in order to make their manoeuvres as best they can: it is within this space that the following operation lies.
Historically, solidarity with revolutionary prisoners has been a focal point of interest for anarchists and a way to come together and build a rebellious sensibility: revolutionary solidarity not solidarity with revolutionaries.
Devised by Turin’s Digos and prosecutors back in 2012, in the wake of 20 years of recurring and failed repressive attempts, operation Scripta Manent led to the arrest of

Bristol [UK]: Vandalizzata la casa di un’informatrice e la polizia (18/04/2017) [it]

18 aprile: abbiamo pensato a lungo che “Julie”, un’informatrice di polizia di Yatton, presso Bristol, dovrebbe ricevere una visita, ricordandola che non dimentichiamo, che non perdoniamo. Badger era rimasto, su suo invito, a casa sua quando era in fuga. Badger è ricercato per aver distrutto l’ufficio del quotidiano Bristol Post nel 2011, e per l’incendio di un trasmettitore. Come minimo gesto di solidarietà con l’anarchico ricercato Badger, le abbiamo lasciato la scritta “infame”, e sabotato la sua macchina. Speriamo abbia un incidente e rimanga paralizzata. Julie vive in via Barberry Farm 3, assieme al suo partner e figlio. Una vecchia slavata attivista pacifista, diventata una disgustosa traditrice che ha abusato della fiducia riposta in lei. Julie ha pensato che poteva proteggersi dall’attenzione della polizia fornendo informazioni, ma ha scoperto che i maiali volevano di più. Così ha fornito informazioni anche su altre persone che venivano in casa sua a trovare Badger, e la polizia si è assicurata di mandare la scientifica a prelevare il DNA. Infame, sarai ricordata come un’altra reazionaria che merita di vivere nello squallore. Speriamo che il tumore dentro il tuo corpo ti ammazzi e trasformi i tuoi ultimi giorni in più infelici che ci siano. E che muori sapendo che sei odiata. Altri attivisti (che però non abbiamo dimenticato) hanno protetto questa infame nel periodo della sua attività di informatrice, impedendo ai ricercati di sapere che Julie aveva tradito Badger e suoi amici. Milioni di vostre patetiche vite da attivisti non valgono un cazzo paragonate all’indomabile spirito di Badger.
Non molto lontano dalla casa di Julie c’è Davis Lane, Clevedon, dove si trova la polizia a cavallo con l’ippodromo, e vicino a questo un centro operativo di polizia speciale. Abbiamo bucato le gomme di quattro veicoli per trasporto di cavalli, e lasciato la scritta “A terra, AH AH!”. Alla faccia della sicurezza!

Rimani libero, Badger – Fanculo la Polizia
Solidarietà ai detenuti anarchici e quelli in fuga.

Bristol [UK]: Sabotato ripetitore Vodafone (09/03/2017) [it]

Ripetitore Vodafone sabotato il 9 marzo a Bristol.

Circa tre settimane fa un ripetitore della Vodafone è stato sabotato con a Barton Hill, Bristol. Questo attacco contro il sempre più invasivo ramo dell’infrastruttura capitalista è stato ispirato dalle recenti simili azioni in Italia. In tutta l’Europa la Vodafone ha “fieramente” firmato un’ampia varietà di contratti a lungo termine con un numero di differenti forze di polizia.
Questo ripetitore, sulla strada di Regina Anna, è/era situato davanti all’edificio di Kenneth Steele, notevole unità anticrimine della polizia di Bristol, vicino alla stazione dei treni Temple Meads a Bristol. Quindi, non è stata colpita solo la compagnia, ma anche l’onore degli sbirri e la loro facciata di controllo. Un “caloroso” saluto a loro.
Oltre a ciò, è stata sabotata anche una macchina G4S solo una settimana fa, a St. George, Bristol.
G4S è una massiccia azienda globale di sicurezza privata, che gestisce un numero di carceri private, incluse le prigioni giovanili e centri di migrazione. Dove uno

We want to point out that the anarchist prisoners’ fund needs money. The fund is for all anarchist prisoners, so the money raised is used in this way:
- Sent to the comrades in prison every 15 days
- Used for legal expenses and experts’ reports
- If visiting relatives or comrades need it, their journeys are paid for, given that visits are essential.
- The money is also used for info material (news, updates, destructive actions, communiques, etc.), which is sent to the prisoners every 15 days so that they can keep up to date on what is happening outside.
- It is also used also for telegrams in case of urgent communication such as transfers, reports, disciplinary sanctions, etc.
Anyone who wants to know details about the destination of the money sent to the fund can write to us and specify it.
