Communiqué in solidarity with Gianluca and Adriano (Italy)

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

FOR WILD ANARCHY! IN SOLIDARITY WITH GIANLUCA AND ADRIANO

“As a prisoner I can’t stop dreaming nor imagining a world free from authoritarian violence, free from the pairs of oppressed-oppressors, exploited-exploiters. Free from moral and social restraints that regulate-inhibit appetites and circumscribe the horizons. A world free from every cages… shame of mankind. A world where human arrogance is put aside for a symbiotic and empathic coexistence with all living beings, in the respect of natural balances and where the search for individual freedom is the only path to trace for a real and collective self-determination”
(from a letter of Adriano)

Since September 2013 two anarchists from Albano Laziale and Frascati (Rome) have been locked in the high security sections of the prisons of Ferrara and Alessandria, together with other anarchist and revolutionary prisoners. The charge of “subversive association with finality of terrorism”, which will bring them to trial on the 26th of may, concerns 13 incendiary attacks and sabotages against several banks, an ENEL branch, an ENI petrol station, the working site of a discharge and other companies responsible for ecological devastation and animal exploitation.

Letter from anarchist prisoner Adriano Antonacci (Italy)

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

“Violence generates violence. Regardless of what is right or wrong, no matter how abstruse is the boundary between opposites and how easily they can converge. The word violence and the concept it expresses present deep mystifications to those who have the monopoly on it. All expressions of dissent are being disproportionately repressed… no surprise… ‘go and tell them that it’s springtime’ [rough translation of ‘vagli a spiegare che è primavera’, a verse by the late anarchist singer and song-writer Fabrizio De Andrè].”

The modus operandi of cops and politicians is infamous enough, with their artistic architecture made of inexistent castles in the sky, and their accusing anarchists of belonging to imaginary associations; and with the judiciary of the State-Capital, servile and functional to miserable power, advocate and perpetrator of the dictates of dominion.

“Hier und Jetzt!” – eine Broschüre (Germoney)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Am 30. Oktober 2013 begann der Prozess gegen die beiden Gefӓhrten Nicola Gai und Alfredo Cospito. Ihnen wurde der Angriff auf den Atommanager Adinolfi, in Genua, vorgeworfen. Am 7. Mai 2012 wurde diesem vor seinem Haus aufgelauert und ins Knie geschossen. Zu der Tat bekannte sich die Zelle Olga FAI/FRI. Im darauffolgenden September wurden dann die beiden Gefӓhrten verhaftet. Dieser repressive Schlag reihte sich in eine ganze Serie von repressiven Operationen gegen AnarchistInnen in Italien: Z.B. die Operationen Ardire und Thor oder den langen Haftstrafen fϋr GefӓhrtInnen fϋr Genua 2001 und den Krawall 2011 in Rom. Immer werden den Verhafteten Angriffe oder Subversion in Form von Agitation vorgeworfen. Weder die Angriffe gegen das Bestehende, noch die Repression hören auf, so ist es wichtig sich nicht entmutigen zu lassen und sich mit den Gefӓhrten auf den verschiedenen Wegen solidarisch zu begnen.

In den Texten von Nicola und Alfredo können wir von ihrer kompromisslosen Haltung, gegenüber dem was uns unterdrückt, lesen. Beide sind trotz ihrer Situation im Knast weiterhin aktiv und beteiligen sich an Diskussionen.

Statement from NO TAV arrested (Italy)

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014

TERRORISTS ARE THOSE WHO DEVASTATE AND MILITARIZE THE TERRITORY

CALL FOR A DAY OF MOBILIZATION

There are approximately 600 people accused, over a thousand investigated, dozens of people under several restrictions (home confinement, expulsion order), fines for hundreds of thousands of euros, a trial against 53 No Tav protesters, and several comrades who have been under house arrest for months now. These numbers show the repressive fury against the No Tav movement. This August, the Prosecutor of Turin added yet another chapter to their crusade: No Tav rotesters were investigated for “actions aimed at a terroristic attack” for one of the many actions taken against the construction site of Chiomonte – and for this reason subject to restraining measures.

Thursday, February 6th, 2014

On January 17, 2014 the preliminary hearing for the case of “Operazione Ardire” was held in Perugia, concerning the Perugia line of the investigation. At the request of the public prosecutor, the nun Manuela Comodi, the charges of terrorist association (270a) has been dropped, while the comrades have been indicted for some specific facts (writing slogans on walls, etc.), which however has been recognized as the aggravating circumstance of terrorism.

‘I want Comrades, not the mob…’ by the imprisoned members of CCF, plus Andreas Tsavdaridis and Spyros Mandylas (Greece)

Friday, October 25th, 2013

In Italy, on 30th October, our two brothers, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, are going on trial, accused for the gunshots against a high-profile business executive of a nuclear company. The attack was claimed by the Olga cell-FAI/IRF.

I know people… people silent and chatty,
coward and audacious, humble and arrogant…

People, who live obediently, like sheep and others,
who lurk treacherously, like hyenas.

I know people who dream without fantasy
and others, who live without dreaming… people, whose eyes
are used to staring low and whose ears
are used to taking orders “wake up”, “work”,
“pay”, “buy”, “believe”, “comply”…

People from the lonely crowd, who patiently wait
in the line of life… for the eternal tomorrow,
for the better days, the optimistic future, the answers to their prayers…

They are waiting to believe in every prospective savior
and in any conman of thought, who will promise them a better life.

But those, who wait to live a better tomorrow,
are today, already dead.

I know people, but only a few of them are my comrades.
Slow Death or Insurrection here and Now…

These are the two paths, that unravel before us.
We choose to be there, where the strong ones dare.

The air is cleaner and the crowd, which bows before its false idols,
doesn’t ugly our aesthetics.

It is nice to look down from the mountain Peak of the Unique
even if the crowd secretly wishes for you to fall into the abyss
in order for it, not to be ashamed of its short stature.

Our words, carve today like a blade
and our actions burn the bridges with yesterday…
With tenacity and will, until we murder authority.

For Nicola and Alfredo.
For the Anarchists of Praxis.

The members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire:

Nikolopoulos Giorgos, Nikolopoulos Mixalis, Tsakalos Xristos, Tsakalos Gerasimos, Oikonomidou Olga, Bolano Damianos, Argyrou Panagiotis, Polydoros Giorgos, Mavropoulos Theofilos, Xatzimixelakis Xaris

The member of FAI/IRF, Tsavdaridis Andreas and anarcho-nihilist Mandylas Spyros.

‘The figures don’t add up?’ – Leaflet in solidarity with anarchist comrades Alfredo and Nicola (Italy)

Saturday, October 19th, 2013

Two years have passed since the latest incident in a nuclear power plant, that of Fukushima: a never before established and incalculable number of deaths, wounded and people contaminated by radioactivity; damages of huge proportions that the Japanese techno-scientific community, government and press awkwardly try to conceal, and last but not least the tragic farce of the Olympic Games in Japan, with which propaganda is glorifying a devastated, deadly and broken territory.

In Italy, an unknown number of radioactive waste sites oozing death are scattered in the countryside of Saluggia and Trino Vercellese close to the Po basin, the heritage of the last nuclear power plant that operated in the Piedmont region.

A regular passage of trains loaded with nuclear waste destined to re-processing (i.e. re-use) goes on between North Europe, Italy, the Susa Valley and France.

An industrial giant, Finmeccanica, specializes in various sectors including nuclear power for civil use (maintenance of existing nuclear plants and construction of new ones), arms production and trade, and control systems (mainly concentrated on the new borders of expansion such as nuclear plants in Romania, arms trafficking with India, etc), also represents a typical example of racketeering, corruption and exploitation ingrained in all expressions of dominion and capital.

A planner of nuclear plants, a champion of the dramatically false and faulty sustainability of the civil use of nuclear power, who is a manager belonging to Ansaldo Nucleare of Finmeccanica- Roberto Adinolfi- was wounded by a gunshot outside his house on May 7 2012, in an action claimed by the Olga nucleus of the Informal Anarchist Federation.

Two comrades, anarchists Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito will go on trial on October 30 2013, after having been charged with attack with purposes of terrorism following Adinolfi’s wounding.

We greet with joy and anger anyone who opposes the devastation perpetrated by dominion, and with their heads held high they continue to claim the validity and force of real practices of struggle and critique.

For anarchy.

‘Operation Ardire’ – Communiqué of Culmine (Italy)

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Via informa-azione, BPD

Dear comrades,

as many of you already know the anarchist blog Culmine was released from prison on September 7 because the period of pre-trail detention had expired.

However it cannot be said that we were freed because they have inflicted restrictions on us: we can’t travel abroad, are compelled to live in our towns and have to report to the police station twice a day. (more…)

Anarchist comrade Elisa Di Bernardo’s contribution to the IX Meeting for Animal Liberation (Italy)

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Note: This contribution was written by Elisa while she was still locked up in the Rebibbia prison following so-called Operation Ardire. She was released on September 7 and she is now being subjected to restrictive measures.

Hi everybody!

To be honest (excuse me for the unpleasant word) I’ve never participated in any of the previous meetings for animal liberation. This is the first time I’m expressing my opinion on an occasion of this kind, although I’m locked up in jail.

What I’m about to write is not necessarily linked to a precise and univocal topic related to an agenda, but it is meant as a series of considerations and questions, which share a holistic perspective and an antiauthoritarian way to perceive the existent.

It may seem an inconclusive series of thoughts… do what you want with it, but I want to let you know that the main goal of my short contribution is to demolish some stereotypes and demystify some ‘absolute truths’. And now I’m going freewheel… (more…)

Comrade Francesco Carrieri imprisoned in Savona (Italy)

Friday, October 4th, 2013

We learn that Francesco, a comrade arrested following the revolt of 15th October 2011 in Rome, was accused of breaking his bail conditions and was sent back to jail. A dozen people went immediately outside the prison of Savona in solidarity with the comrade.

Address of the comrade:

Francesco Carrieri
C.C. di Savona
Piazza Monticello 14
17100 Savona
Italy

Here follows the text of a leaflet distributed during a solidarity initiative in Savona, a place where some graffiti on the wall seem to upset the normal routine of a city that hosts a disgusting prison right in the middle of blocks of flats. (more…)
