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!

Presoni e Brucoli, 25 Aprile 2017

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: “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.

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


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

We learn from the correspondence with anarchist comrades in the AS2 [high security] of Ferrara prison, that with the renewal of censorship [March 6th] for another three months, the grip on their correspondence started again, and many letters are seized.
In addition, they tell us that comrade Nicola Gai could be in isolation. We are waiting to get all the facts, as soon as the prison visits will be done.

Carcere di Fléury-Mérogis [Francia]: Lettera dell’anarchico Damien (02/2017) [it]

Ci sono giorni in carcere quando la rabbia e l’odio, mischiati ad un senso di d’impotenza, raggiungono l’apice. Gli sbirri hanno arrestato il compagno XXXX, che si trova attualmente detenuto qui a Fléury, ma in un altro edificio, che ci impedisce qualsiasi contatto.
Il compagno è in custodia cautelare nell’edificio D2, accusato nel caso del barbecue con salsa di divise.
Non conosco l’esatto contenuto delle accuse, ma sappiamo che sono pesanti. Quindi, ci sono possibilità che sia accusato di tentato omicidio di due rappresentanti dell’ordine.
Queste accuse, come sappiamo, sono assurde, e pure la giustizia ne è consapevole, che la volontà in questo bellissimo atto di insubordinazione non era purtroppo di bruciare gli sbirri presenti nella macchina incendiata. Oppure, solo un po’, cioè giusto per ammorbidire la carne. In ogni caso, non mi interessa se il compagno è colpevole o innocente per i fatti contestati. A me basta sapere che è anarchico per sentirmi solidale, mi basta condividere i fatti per sentirmi complice.
Abbiamo tutti condiviso con il compagno momenti di rivolta complice e gioiosa, momenti da compagni e di amicizia meravigliosa con un compagno sempre in prima fila quando c’era da contrastare. Come quel giorno del 24 marzo 2016, quando il compagno fu arrestato mentre energicamente lottavamo contro la BAC e il servizio d’ordine della CGT, che non riuscivano più a contenere la rivolta, uniti per reprimere a gran colpi di manganello e gas.
Oggi, dopo le dimostrazioni di forza degli sbirri nelle proteste e lo stupro che hanno commesso in nome della sicurezza, mentre furiosi riprendono sporadicamente il controllo sulle strade durante qualche rivolta, e la repressione si abbatte sui ribelli di ogni tipo, alimentiamo il fuoco della violenza Anarchica.
Agli idioti utili al potere, dal rapper Fianso al collettivo “verità e giustizia”, che invitano alla calma implorando i loro padroni, sbirri e giudici di svolgere i loro lavoro repressivo con più clemenza, rammentiamo una semplice cosa:
Uno sbirro buono è uno sbirro morto!
Solidarietà e complicità offensiva con il compagno! Un pensiero anche per Kara, dignitosa, coerente e detenuta per le medesime accuse.
Dato che ho sempre considerato l’intervento anarchico in maniera internazionale, approfitto di questa lettera per esprimere, nello stesso tempo, la mi solidarietà con i presunti rapinatori di banca del caso di Aquisgrana in Germania, con i detenuti per l’operazione Scripta Manent in Italia e con i due compagni indagati per l’attacco alla scuola di polizia a Brescia.

Italy: Anarchist Black Cross — Document read out during the meeting in Turin (21/01/2017) [en]

As happens any time that power tries to block the path of the revolt that creeps like weeds, opening up cracks and disconnecting the straight secure roads of exploitation and oppression, it is necessary for those who still care about the life pulsating in those weeds to look each other in the eye.
Following the operation denominated ‘Scripta Manent’ we, some anarchists, decided to do a number of meetings. Those held in Pisa and Rome have produced various problematics. But obviously, happening in a context of ‘emergency’, i.e. in response to the arrest of eight anarchist comrades, it was difficult to find the space to go into them. Not for that should we lose the opportunity to find this space and create moments for deeper analysis.
The last phrase of the text calling for this series of meetings that started from Pisa read: ‘We believe that those who see the responsibility to claim the anarchist idea, its tensions and practices as their own need to meet up and discuss.’ Let’s ask ourselves a question: why do we consider this responsibility ours at the present time?
Our answer is clear. These past years in particular have been strongly characterised by a progressive shallowness that in time has led to victimization, dissociation, silence in regard to the latter, specific divisions between good boys and bad anarchists, etc. etc.
So, today more than ever, we think it is fundamental to firmly take our responsibilities as individuals who do not submit to resignation, expressing our will to re-establish what the anarchist struggle is.
Among the many things, remaining shoulder to shoulder with our comrades also means collectively taking on everything that they are charged with as part of our own struggle/life.
That’s why we are convinced that occasions such as this encounter and the previous ones, where, as anarchists, we talk to prepare an event but also look beyond the cycle of repressive operations, should be supported and promoted.
The trajectory that the State wants to put on trial by holding Marco, Danilo, Anna, Valentina, Sandro, Alfredo, Daniele and Nicola hostages is our own. We therefore call for a proud presence at the trial, always knowing that the struggle, the real one, the living one, is carried out at other levels.
We think that solidarity is a word that has been abused and now even causes confusion; what we have at heart is to continue to do what we’ve done in the past and create the occasion to carry on in the future. Free from any sense of devotion, let’s get rid of the logic of having to do solidarity; we don’t think that there is anything particular about staying close to comrades who are temporarily held in a phase that one consciously risks by living anarchy, and we are sure that any well-delivered blow creates a crack in the walls that dominion erects to keep us down inside and outside its cages.
