New letter by Eric G. King – Anarchist comrade charged with ‘terrorism’ by the American State (USA)

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

1. USA: Lettera di Eric G. King – anarchico accusato di terrorismo dal governo statunitense.

Revolutionary solidarity to anarchist Eric King, charged with attacking a government building in Kansas City! Eric is facing 30 years to life in prison!

“I endure my sorrows with my convictions which are stronger than all of this human vileness.” That quote by revolutionary Spaniard Durruti sums up my current existence. Prison is a disgusting place meant to destroy hope and facilitate despair. Thankfully I find myself comforted knowing that to be a fighter is to suffer the consequences of revolutionary action, and to cower as soon as things begin to suffer is to lose track of what matters most. There is no shame in being locked down for my alleged crimes. The state at every level has been complicit to the destruction of the poor working class both at home and abroad. American workers have forgotten that their time is precious, their labour glorious. So long have wages and benefits been cut, so long have the lower class been villainized that many forget that they are not “soon to be millionaires” but rather horribly exploited. Classism in the states is manifested by the rich and drilled into all of our brains until instead of disgust against a society that allows its brothers and sisters to toil for 7 an hour, we have disgust for the people doing those jobs! How backwards.

My life goal even back to the early priestly days has been to fight for the poor and exploited: both by fighting against classism, racism, sexism and all oppression. I have witnessed the state at the highest federal level down to the lowest meaningless commission act in compliance with corporate desires against humans, nonhuman animals and the environment. To ignore these actions is to put your own boot on the throat of the oppressed. So I await my trial for allegedly fighting against that which has always and will always use its tools to silence dissent and manipulate the masses. To fight against this government is to do the most honorable thing a human can do, to sacrifice what you can, when you can.

I stand behind the comrades in Ferguson, that they may accomplish the great deed of social revolution over a system of decades old institutionalized bigotry, and with the anti-government protesters in Mexico, standing up against the US backed government ran on violence and corruption. My only regret is that I am not able to join in those battles. For me my fight is on the inside now. Overcoming torturous solitary conditions and stimulation isolation. I take great solidarity from those who have came before me in this struggle and those who continue to show me love and remind me what this fight is for.

Please continue to support the causes that fight for dignity and empowerment of the oppressed and exploited over profit. Please support those who saw injustice and could no longer continue to struggle in a non-confrontational form, whose hearts had seen enough suffering to have to defend and lash out in the only ways they knew how. Thank you to everyone who has sent a letter, funds, books, posted on a website or shown support in anyway. Times like these you find out who your real friends are and what love really means. My spirit won’t weaken, 20 years or 1 year, I will continue to give all I have for the liberation movement I cherish more than life. No gods, no masters, no justice, no peace!

Keep up the fight,
in deepest solidarity

Eric King (A) (///) (V)
NO STEPS BACK!

Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity statement to comrade Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

via actforfree:

Today, with all the rage against powers that seizes lives, with the conviction of a free world, black flags are being waved all around the world.

Against companies that exploit our labour for more profit; against States that murder many of us in the name of the borders they have drawn up; against all powers that fill their pockets with our lives that they destroy, making us poorer and making the rich richer; rebellion is alive in the rage of anarchism.

The rage against bosses, companies, murderers and States, is propagating in full flood with black flags. The sorrow of being disappeared and murdered is now turning into anger, and the streets are burning with rage all over. (more…)

Letter by Adriano Antonacci about ‘citizenism’ and other topics (Italy)

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

Contribution of Adriano from the prison of Ferrara: “A sad circus. Vote for Gianluca and Adriano!”

Contribution to the Croce Nera Anarchica bulletin # 1 – September 2014

With the usual unpromptness caused by the imprisonment, I came to know about the spreading of a public plea aiming at collecting signatures in support of Gianluca and myself. In the beginning I understood it was a proposal for a referendum. A referendum about the “right to resistance” or even the “legitimate sabotage” and I said to myself: if they will reach the quorum, what will ever happen? What will we do? Will we all be “immediately free”? Will we all attack together the existing order?

I had the blurry feeling of being kidnapped by the state and right in the middle of a trial, instead I find myself co-candidate and in full electoral campaign. I had a bit of a headache.

Dear comrades, it’s hot and this sickening vacation doesn’t allow any relief valve, let me then waste a bit of ink to write some obvious things concerning this sad circus and I recommend, vote for us!

With this letter I don’t want to express resentment towards those who promoted this initiative, I wouldn’t dream of it! I can say I have appreciated it from a human point of view but, given my disagreement, on every perspective of it, I think it’s important to reply. (more…)

Piraeus: Open letter of hospitalized comrade Yannis Michailidis, on hunger strike since November 17th (Greece)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

I write these lines to express how much I was touched by the widespread and polymorphous solidarity activity of comrades outside the prison walls.

Not only because its extent, imaginativeness, organizing-coordinating, tenacity and aggressiveness so far have surpassed all my expectations, knowing that significant state and capitalist buildings, and radio and television stations have been occupied, organized gatherings and demonstrations have taken place in almost all major cities of the territory, and attacks on the forces of repression as well as all kinds of insurgency attacks have occurred. But also because this is what breaks the solitude of my cell and makes me smile, because I was not imprisoned on Tuesday night, I was among you and felt the warmth of flaming barricades. (more…)

“Distance keeps us apart, feelings unite us” – A letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Monica Caballero (Spain)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

From RadioAzione – Translated from Italian by Actforfreedomnow:

The coming days will be full of intense emotion: the anniversary of Sebastian’s irreparable loss in December and already in November a year has passed since I was jailed.

I remember when I heard about Sebastian’s death, it was like a bucket of cold water (bad company in the cold nights of Madrid). The loss of a comrade is always a something horrible but now I am able to remember it and feel proud of having had such a dignified comrade.
We who are building a different reality must remember our brothers and sisters, otherwise only a pile of police reports and journalists’ obituaries will remain of them. The fall of an anti-authoritarian in this war on the existent cannot just be a cause of sadness, we are also called upon to follow his or her example; and in my case it is an immense joy to remember the beautiful lives of those who never bowed down in order to storm the heavens.
Even if it might seem repetitive, Angry [Sebastian O. Seguel] lives in our thoughts. Distance separates us, feelings unite us.

I shall take advantage of this moment lost in memories to make a short analysis of my situation. I’ll begin by going over the reasons for my arrest.

On 13/11/13 the police captured me, my comrade and another 3 people; they charged us with placing an explosive device that detonated in October 2013 at the Basilica del Pilar (Zaragoza); conspiracy to commit another attack, which would allegedly have taken place at the Monastery of the Virgin in Montserrat (Barcelona); and belonging to an armed gang. All this on the basis of the antiterrorism law.

The organization they say we belong to is the Comando Insurreccional Mateo Morral, a group that claimed the placing of two devices: the one at the Cathedral of Almudena (Madrid) and the other that of the Basilica del Pilar (Zaragoza).

Strangely, the charges also include belonging to FAI-FRI and GAC (coordinated anarchist groups), while there is no reference to these acronyms in the claims for the attacks.
One of the main reasons for the action of the Spanish repressive forces is the reports provided by their Chilean colleagues. Since we (Francisco and I) put foot on Iberian soil, the Chilean police have been doing their utmost to avenge their ridicule following the ‘Caso Bombas’, where both of us were acquitted. The words of Sebastian Piñera, Chilean President at the time of our arrests, to the Spanish home minister prove what I’m saying.

The charges against Francisco and myself go far beyond whether or not we carried out the actions. Even the judicial apparatus admitted that the charges are politically motivated, the only thing certain they have is that we are anarchists.

I have never denied the ideas that I spread, and this is what they are punishing.

I won’t kiss their cross of repentance, and am quite calm as I am convinced that I struggle for more noble ideals and that they will never stop anti-authoritarian ideas and practices.

Let’s arm our trajectory, without compromise or negotiation.

We won’t stop until we have torn down all the cages.

Death to the State and long live anarchy!

Letter by anarchist prisoner P. Michalakoglou from Nigrita prisons (Greece)

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Monday, October 13, 2014

At 5.30 in the morning while I was sleeping in my cell at the basement of the F wing of Korydallos prison, along with the unjustifiably detained comrade and friend M.B., I hear someone calling my surname. I wake up and see the wing’s people-guard saying: “Transfer”. I angrily ask again: “What transfer?” and he responds “Emergency transfer” showing me a paper with names among which only mine was written with a pen. Once more I realize that the war continues inside the prisons. Then they took me alone in the so called fridge -”waiting area”- without knowing the prison I was being transferred to. Four hours later another people-guard calls me and shows to me the paper for my transfer to Nigritas prison in Serres. (more…)

Ávila prison: Words from comrade Mónica Caballero (Spain)

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

The State calls its own violence Law; that of the individual crime. Lawbreaking, then – so the individual’s violence is called; and only by crime does he break the State’s violence when he thinks that the State is not above him, but rather he is above the State.Max Stirner

These days, almost 10 months since my incarceration in the prisons of the Spanish State, I needed to give out these words to you dear comrades, who struggle for the abolition of every authority and the integral development of every individual.

Today, at the security level, anarchism is one of the major concerns of many Western (and some Eastern) States; in this witch-hunt aimed at informal antiauthoritarians anything goes, this repressive hysteria is inherent in the conquest of total liberation, it is as old as the acratist ideas. Therefore, a momentary or prolonged visit to one of the placid monuments of human extermination awaits all those who try to confront or simply question the prevailing order. (more…)

German Prisons: Thomas Meyer-Falk – A contribution to the 2014 Anti-Prison Days in Vienna, Austria

Friday, October 24th, 2014

via contra-info:

Many of us are spontaneously and long since aware of it: prisons are places of ethical, humane, moral and cultural decay. There is no desire for life, freedom, humaneness conveyed there but instead the guards and any other staff treat the detainees as dead objects; they manage people as piece goods in a storehouse.

So prisons are necrophiliac places.

It was only a few weeks ago that a prison inmate – who was kept in solitary confinement for a couple of years after having broken a guard’s nose with a headbutt in 2012 – was starved to death in Germany. (more…)

A communique by Giannis Mihailidis concerning his stance during his trial (Greece)

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Read the full dialogue which took place between various anarchist prisoners and the “Kontra” newspaper here.

I write these lines because of the public critique I received by communist newspaper “Kontra”, concerning my stance to discredit courts by being absent from the procedure. Initially I would like to clarify that I do not dispute even a little bit the comradely intentions of this critique and I recognize the contribution of this specific project as very important to the struggle, with the presence at and update of all terror-trials.

I think the root of this disagreement, is the crucial difference between anarchist analyses and Marxist ideology, concerning the role of the state mechanism, its institutions and the social contracts. (more…)

Letter from Panagiotis Mihalakoglou and M.B. from Korydallos prison (Greece)

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Greetings to the comrades who attack with strength and decisiveness and sharpen the conflict of the insurrectionary war.

On Wednesday, October 1, 2014 the dogs of Counter-terrorism agency rang the bell at my home, where I was with comrade M.B. Half an hour later and after I was sure that there was no way of escaping or the possibility of fighting them, I opened the door and this resulted in them barging into the house.

They immediately put handcuffs on M.B. and sent him to their headquarters, while they kept my handcuffed in the house. During their search, they found weapons that belongs to me and with which comrade M.B. has nothing to do. Afterwards they transferred me at their headquarters as well. I was questioned for about 15 hours as they were trying to get information about the weapons and the actions of other comrades. They failed and they moved me to a cell without being able to communicate with M.B. who was locked up in the cell next to mine. After 5 days of detention, they took us before the prosecution judge and we were led to the basement of F wing of Korydallos prison to remain in pre-trial detention.

They don’t frighten us, they enrage us.

Solidarity and strength to all unrepentant political prisoners.

Proud and unrepentant anarchists

Panagiotis Mihalakoglou

Erklärung des Anarchisten Antonis Stamboulos, inhaftiert in Athens Polizeihauptquartier (Griechenland)

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

„Polizeihauptquartiere, Politiker und Zeitungen; verschiedene Namen, dieselben Schweine“

Am 1. Oktober 2014 wurde ich verhaftet, bekam eine Kapuze über den Kopf gezogen und wurde in einen Verhörraum der Antiterroreinheit gebracht. Von 17 Uhr bis ein Uhr morgens war eine Bande vermummter Bullen damit zugange, während mir die Hände auf dem Rücken gefesselt waren, mir DNA und Fingerabdrücke abzunehmen und mich mit Gewalt zu fotografieren, immer begleitet von höhnischen Bemerkungen, Würgegriffen, Verdrehungen und Schlägen.

Prison governor suspended after detainee starves to death (Germany)

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

A short update from comrade Thomas Meyer-Falk about the inhuman conditions in German prisons.

Thomas was locked up for 11 and a half years in 1996 for a politically motivated bank-robbery and has spent most of his sentence in isolation. He had his sentence extended and remains incarcerated today.

On 18th August 2014 Koala Rosmane died after two years in Bruchsal Prison, Germany. A few days later the prison director, Mr M, was suspended.

- The Details

In 2012 Koala Rosmane was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to ten years in jail. Maybe because he had trouble with a prison officer, and/or maybe because Rosmane came from Burkina Faso in Africa, he was sentenced to another year and kept in solitary confinement for the past two years. It has been said that racist officers insulted the inmate often. For the past few months he refused prison food, maybe because he feared that the prison administration wanted to poison him.

- The Death

The forensic doctor who carried out the post mortem examination said that the prisoner was extremely malnourished. Maybe he died of starvation.

- The Suspension

It was the first time ever in Germany that a prison warden was suspended after an inmates death. Mr M was known for his special “character”. A couple of years ago, when he sent his Christmas greetings to inmates, he used a quotation from a song by a band which has been involved in racist attacks in the past. Inmates hang themselves, cut their veins, make hunger strikes. No one was interested in them. But it seems that now Mr M has gone too far! (more…)

A communique about the disciplinary wings of Korydallos prison by Dimitris Politis (Greece)

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

via interarma:

In the middle of July, I was transferred to the state hospital of Nikea for some medical examinations. There, given the nature of that examination and due to the police presence during the procedure, which was demanded by the doctor himself, I refused to be examined and I returned to prison. On the 6th of August, I was called to a disciplinary council on the charge of disobedience because I refused to execute the command of my police escort. By entering the office of the commanding prison officer with the intention of telling the prosecutor that I have nothing to state and then leave, I sat opposite to her and she addressed me saying “stand up”. I didn’t pay attention to what she said and while I was telling her to get serious, she told me again with an arrogant smile to stand up. Then, I crumpled the piece of paper where the charges were written and I threw it in her face. I was obviously standing before another arrogant and misled person, who was under the illusion that she owns the world. I was facing another expendable and petty pawn that was under the illusion that all prisoners are inferior to it. So, in order for her to restore her wounded ego, she “punished” me with a five-day restriction penalty in a “special detention wing”. (more…)

First communique of Reacción Salvaje / Wild Reaction – RS (Mexico)

Monday, September 8th, 2014


from contrainfo, transl wos:


First communique.
Cuernavaca, Morelos
August 14, 2014


“The people who are pushing all this garbage of development and technological progress should be severely punished.”

- F. [a]

After a little more than three years of criminal-terrorist activity, the group “Individualists Tending toward the Wild” (ITS), begins a new phase in this open war against the Technoindustrial System, which we explain below:

I

First of all, we want to explain that during all of 2012 and 2013, various groups of a terrorist and sabotage stripe were uniting themselves with the group ITS, so that now, after a long silence and for purely strategic reasons, we publicly claim:

1) The “Informal Anti-civilization Group,” which on June 29, 2011, took responsibility for the explosion that severely damaged a Santander bank in the city of Tultitlan, Mexico.

2) “Uncivilized Autonomous,” who on October 16, 2011 set off a bomb inside the ATMs of a Banamex, located between the cities of Tultitlan and Coacalco in Mexico State.

3) “Informal Circle of Antagonistic Individualists,” who in September 2009 set several wild horses free from a farm in Aguascalientes.

4) “Wild Indomitables,” who on October 16, 2011 left a butane gas bomb that did not detonate in a Santander bank in the Álvaro Obregón district of Mexico City. The act was never claimed until now.

5) “Terrorist Cells for the Direct Attack – Anti-civilization Fraction,” which in 2010 and 2011 left a fake bomb in front of the IFaB (Pharmacological and Biopharmeceutical Research), and detonated an explosive outside the building of the National Ecology Institute (INE), both in the Tlalpan district of Mexico City.

6) “Luddites against the Domestication of Wild Nature,” who during 2009 to 2011 had taken part in various incendiary attacks in some cities in Mexico State and various districts of Mexico City, claimed or unclaimed.

7) “NS – Fera – Kamala y Amala” which on December 9, 2011, left an explosive package addressed to the director of the National Institute of Psychiatry “Ramón de la Fuente” in the Tlalpan district, Mexico City. It was deactivated by the police bomb squad. On the 15th of this month, the same group warned through email of the presence of a car bomb in the institution’s parking lot, which, although it was a false warning, created terror among the officials of that center of mental alienation.

8 ) “Earth Liberation Front – Bajío”, which on November 16, 2011 set off an explosive charge creating damages within the ATM area of a branch of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) in the city of Irapuato in Guanajuato.

Likewise, during this year, 2014, two more terroristic groups have united with us who have put the development of the Technoindustrial System in their sights, we refer to: (more…)

Open letter of Revolutionary Struggle member Pola Roupa from clandestinity / Lettera aperta del membro di “Lotta Rivoluzuionaria”, Pola Roupa, dalla clandestinità / Offener Brief aus der Klandestinität von Pola Roupa, Mitglied des Revolutionären Kampfe (Greece)

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Italian & German version below, here are Spanish and Portuguese.

On July 16th, 2014 the armed dogs of the establishment unleashed a fierce manhunt, and comrade Nikos Maziotis, member of the Revolutionary Struggle, was hit by a cop’s bullet and fell covered in blood. The comrade gave his battle against the cops that were chasing him. The state apparatus in its totality triumphed over the arrest of the “No 1 most-wanted fugitive” in the country. So did the criminal and real archi-terrorist Samaras, whose government took over the reins from the former pro-memorandum governments in a campaign for the biggest social genocide that has ever occurred in Greece in a time of “peace”. Samaras has used the arrest of Maziotis as a means to the stabilization of his faltering government, in order to support a political and economic regime with rotten foundations, which has long been discredited in social consciences.

For the political and economic regime, not only in Greece but also internationally, the arrest of a revolutionary with the political calibre of Nikos Maziotis is a “significant success”, as stated by the United States. That’s because the comrade’s arrest is perceived by our enemies as a blow to the struggle for the establishment’s subversion, as a blow to the struggle for liberation from the yoke of capitalism and the State, as a blow to the struggle for social Revolution. The size of threat that Maziotis poses to the establishment is reflected in the high-pitched nauseating rejoicing on the part of the domestic and foreign political power. Because the comrade and the Revolutionary Struggle, the organization in which he belongs, are intrinsically linked to the systemic political destabilization, to the undermining of a rotten regime; linked to the consistent war against domination and contemporary barbarity; linked to the struggle for the overthrow of the State and capitalism, linked to the social Revolution itself. Comrade Nikos Maziotis was and continues to be committed to the Revolution. This is what he has fought for, this is what he still fights for; this is why they present him as No 1 danger to the establishment. Thus, the political gravity of this case should be the primary parameter in expressing solidarity with the comrade. (more…)

Update on the situation of Tamara Sol – harassment and punishment (Chile)

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

From instintosalvaje, translated by waronsociety:

Note by Instinto Salvaje: Our solidarity with our compañera Tamara Sol Farias Vergara is unrestricted, therefore we cannot be quiet about the situation that is happening with our compañera and her family. We only wish to express our irreducible love for our sisters and brothers in prison and for their families and close circle. And to our enemies we want to make clear our hatred with a few words and in each action that each individual and compañerx deems fitting.

To our friends, compañeros and compañeras:

We are the family of Tamara Sol Farías Vergara. As you are already aware, Tamara has been a prisoner in the San Miguel prison since January 22, 2014. In visitation on Monday, June 16, which was a family-only visit, we had serious problems with gendarmería due to the humiliating treatment we were submitted to. The guard who reviewed Tamara’s grandmother, Luisa, who is 75 years old, made her get naked and do squats, reproaching her that she was wearing a lot of clothing. It is worth mentioning that the place where the prisoners receive their families is a gymnasium with a roof but open on both sides, where the wind and rain come in, getting the entire floor wet and creating an extremely cold and damp atmosphere. Then this same official shouted at another inmate’s visitor because her months-old baby was soiled during the review, shouting at her that this could not be, that she had to change her before coming in! This mother arrived in tears to the gymnasium designated for visitation. (more…)

Letter of “Security Case” comrades, Freddy, Juan, Marcelo and Carlos – About their refusal to assist at their sentence reading trial, and a call for insurrection (Chile)

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras

[Note from Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras: comrades Freddy, Juan and Marcelo were declared guilty by the enemy’s justice in a trial that ended on June 06.
The sentence reading against Freddy, Juan & Marcelo will take place on July 03, for the accusation of a bank robbery and a police murder that happened near the “Security Bank” on 2007. After years of clandestinity, the comrades have been imprisoned about six years in preventive prison. Comrade Carlos was captured later, and power inserts him in a different trial. These comrades were members of Marxist urban guerrilla groups that did not stop armed struggle when democracy returned in Chile (1990). Now, they declare themselves as autonomous and libertarian anti-capitalist.]


With Entirety and Conviction

Here we go with revolutionary fortitude that will not fit into a paper, with Libertarian Skin and conviction, entirely in the direct confrontation with the capitalist state and its machinery of subjection. We don’t deny our ties, and memory is present in a continuum of struggle and resistance. Today, democratic inquisition justice with its journalistic carrion, will celebrate publicly announcing their sentences, pretending to perpetuate our lives in prison. In this present confrontational war against power, it is important to mention that we are one more part of those who fight. We are the visible result of a a consciousness development that resists and refuses to live under the designs of Kapital, God of subjection, of domination and all its authoritarian network seeking to annul the dreams, desires and needs of Total Freedom.

Conscience calls to us, the fight is our life as autonomous subversives, therefore we salute to all comrades by the daily practices of solidarity against prisons. With the same intensity we make the call for this July 02, 2014, when the Democratic Inquisition justice will sentence us, to show our anger and repudiation to everything that smells like Power and its imposed order.

Let this day be one more excuse for more subversion, let every street and corner become a fertile stage for action, from individual to collective, from simple to complex. Every real gesture is provided with Entirety when it points accurately towards Power.

We notify to all of our every dear brothers and comrades, families and close ones … We will not assist at our sentence reading… This part of the show, of the theater/circus, does not interest us in a definitive way. And we convocate to everyone to demonstrate autonomously in each space and place we found propitious for it.

A revolutionary, Libertarian embrace of complicity, with all our affection for those who fight.

Prisoners to the streets: Street for insurrection!
No State, Judge or Police can stop subversion!
Only the struggle makes us Free!
While Misery exists, there will be Rebellion!


Freddy, Juan, Marcelo, Carlos.

Some thoughts on the Ukrainian revolution

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Here’s a letter from an anarchist friend (he’s in Kiev). It’s supposed to be a reply to Crimethinc’s recent article on Ukrainian revolution and to everyone who so eagerly claims Ukrainian revolution to be a right-wing only affair. Hope you enjoy.

-

Comrades!
I’m writing to you from Ukraine. I participated a lot in Maidan riots and different anarchist initiatives during that time and want to make several comments that I find to be important for a better understanding of events. In general I agree with your hypothesis’, but I want to emphasize several details which will make the picture not so dark.

To start with, nationalists and fascists took over the forefront of the confrontations only in the media image of Maidan. They have no real control over activities of protesters, but they controlled the scene of Maidan and the fascination of the mainstream medias.

Fascists from “Right Sector” and other organizations had a control only over their members. And it is very remarkable to emphasize that their organizational structures hadn’t been very hierarchical. Groups among them were decentralized. (more…)

Letter from Nikos Romanos – “The question of dignity” (Greece)

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

“And one day I will tell you how much I loved you, but you will have to find me personally.

Like the executioner… I watered the roses of compassion in their sleep I, an ill man by belief, a genius of  misery (who blew his brains out once for a better era) and maybe our tears go further than dreams.

As it got dark I had to find all my innocence again in order for the stars to be there on time.

And usually we kill the present with fear or guilt but mostly with dreams.

Tasos Livaditis

The purpose of this text is to build bridges of communication with all comrades who maintain the choice of  destruction, to give life to my thoughts and contemplations which through these lines travel and meet with  people like me who believe that only through continuous struggle can we win back our lives on our own terms.

A continuous struggle expressed in a thousand different ways directed to one cause.

With enraged voices and clashes in the protests, pen and paper on which are written dangerous thoughts, discussions and confidences with which life relations are built, weapons, bombs and fire which avenge a whole world that threw us into the void.

A desperate journey of freedom with comrades, the stubbornness and “craziness” of all those who decided  to risk and walk against the possibilities, conquering their own fate.

Responsibility claim letter by Gianluca Iacovacci (Italy)

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

via InterArma:

The decisiveness of our struggle and our solidarity are our only “lethal weapons”.

Dear comrades I am imprisoned, like many others, targeted by the oppression of the state, which seeks to annihilate us. Not for what one does, but for what we “risk” to be, to say, to think.

I am riding, along with Adriano and many others, on the judicial roller coaster of the mediated anti-terrorist clique of democracy. First of all, I want to thank all the comrades, who expressed their solidarity, directly or indirectly, even from beyond the borders, as I am convinced that they support us with their very presence within the struggle.

We share the same rage for this grey and miserable existent, which crushes us and for which we feel the same wounds but also the same joy for the wonderful reality of our dreams and our desires. My state is the one of a hostile individual, a captive and a prisoner. (more…)
