Presenting 56 pages of anti-organisational, insurrectional, anti-civilisation anarchy of the 21st Century. A collection of critical texts and letters from anarchist points of view examining the new changes in production and social control brought about by new technologies which are ushering in a totalising prison-world and the advance of smarter-than-human machines. This issue of 325 builds on the considerations and content of the last issue which took as it’s focus the subject of the Technological Singularity. Six years later, the mechanisms, ideologies and impacts of this global dystopian project are nearer and clearer and the texts you will read in this new issue deal with the emerging realities of these technological revolutions.

For the first time, 325 is coming out in 3 languages: First in English, with Spanish and Italian to follow. Printed copies are available, but we also encourage people to print out their own copies and distribute them in their area.

PDF: ‘Incendiary Dialogues: For the Propagation of Anarchic Sedition’ (Black International Editions)

October 17th, 2020

EN | Incendiary Dialogues: For the Propagation of Anarchic Sedition
ES | Diálogos Incendiarios
PT | Diálogos Incendiarios
IT | Dialoghi incendiari

Printed copies coming soon…

We present a new book by Black International Editions, an internationalist project of anarchic diffusion that, from an informal and seditious anarcho-insurrectional intent, resurfaces in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English, with a new title: “Incendiary Dialogues: For the Propagation of Anarchic Sedition”. The title is based on a dialogue on the course of the anarchic war between comrades Alfredo Cóspito, Gustavo Rodríguez and Gabriel Pombo da Silva.

We consciously decided to launch this booklet on May 22, in timely celebration of Chaos Day, remembering anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales, who, on a day like today in 2009 left this life fighting against Power when the bomb he was carrying in his backpack exploded prematurely, detonating a few meters away from the Gendarmerie School in Chile.

We dedicate this book to all our comrades in prison around the world, with a special dedication to our comrade Alfredo Cóspito, imprisoned in Italy, and to our beloved Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, who was arrested in Portugal and extradited to Spain at the time this book was published. We send all our strength to comrade Gabriel in the face of this new revenge by the authorities for his eternal irreducible struggle.

This book will have printed versions that will circulate in affinity spaces, among comrades and diverse anarchic projects around the world. We invite you to actively support its diffusion by sharing its digital version, printing copies and/or making presentations and launches wherever there is a willingness to do the impossible in order to spread chaos and extend anarchic warfare.

Editorial collaborators of Black International Editions.

On the repressive situation in Trentino (Italy)

December 11th, 2020

IT | (Italy, December 2020)

It is nothing new that police operations, convictions and the most varied repressive measures fall on the heads of anarchists. In recent times the attack by the state has intensified throughout the peninsula, from the very heavy sentences of Scripta Manent trial [in Turin], to the accusation of massacre against Juan, to the countless anti-anarchist operations.

Even in Trentino, the number of confined comrades continues to increase. From those confined for having fought unreservedly in Valsusa against the high-speed train [TAV struggle], to those who are serving final sentences for having opposed the imposition of a TSO [Compulsory Health Treatment]. From those who have been put under special surveillance for showing solidarity with a comrade beaten up in prison by the guards, to those who still find themselves in the limbo of an obligation to stay in the municipality of residence that grows longer with each rejection by the courts.

Cameras found in the “ZAD du Carnet” in August (France)

November 16th, 2020

The information below comes from a recent article published by Reporterre, a left-wing environmentalist media. The article in question, whose “legalistic” approach disturbs us, can be read here: https://reporterre.net/Au-Carnet-des-cameras-cachees-et-illegales-pour-surveiller-des-ecologistes (in french).

In august 2020, four cameras were found near the “ZAD du Carnet”, a place of struggle against the creation of an industrial area, in Loire-Atlantique, in the west of France. The cameras were found on August 31, and “appear to have been installed right before a « weekend of resistance »” organized there on August 29 and 30.

The four cameras, hidden near an access gate to the area, were “camouflaged in a fake tree log and fake stones“. They “filmed continuously and were connected, via buried cables, to large batteries and modems, also concealed, allowing images to be sent directly to a remote station“.

In addition, “the mention « Allwan », visible on some of the images found, as well as on a label on a camera, strongly suggests that the equipment was supplied by the company Allwan Security“. The company Allwan Security is present in our list of companies.

Below, you will find a picture of the devices found, two pictures of the objects in which they were hidden, and a map showing the positioning of the cameras around the access gate.

Wien: „Dieser Anschlag darf nicht vereinnahmt werden“ (Österreich)

November 16th, 2020

… war der sofortige Tenor der Regierungsklasse nach dem Terroranschlag in der Wiener Innenstadt am 2. November, der vier Menschen das Leben kostete und bei dem über 20 zum Teil schwer verletzt wurden. Natürlich wird genau das von diesen Politikern jetzt gemacht.

Von denen, die seit Jahren nichts anderes tun, als durch die konstante, weitere Verschärfung der Lebensbedingungen Hass und Gewalt zu kultivieren. Genau die sprechen sich jetzt öffentlich gegen Hass und Gewalt aus (z.B. Kurz & Nehammer). Einem rechten Innenminister ist es nicht zu blöd sich selbst als den starken Anführer sämtlicher Polizeieinheiten zu stilisieren, der keine Straftat unbeantwortet lassen will und „gegen jeden Extremismus mit eiserner Hand vorgehen wird“ (Zitat Nehammer). Als hätte das jemals einen Anschlag verhindert. Dabei: war es nicht das Bundesamt für Verfassungsschutz und Terrorismusbekämpfung BVT (welches ja bekanntlich dem Innenminister unterstellt ist), das im Juli 2020 die Ermittlungen gegen den bereits amtsbekannten Attentäter vom 2. November eingestellt hatte und zwar exakt an dem Tag, als dieser nachweislich versucht hatte, in der Slowakei Sprengstoff und Munition zu erwerben? Read the rest of this entry »

Request for financial solidarity from Belarus – Support the Revolution

November 14th, 2020

By Anarchist Black Cross Belarus

For over three months, people in Belarus have been fighting against the authoritarian regime.

In 26 years, dictator Lukashenko has built a system aimed at suppressing any political life. The coronavirus and a number of economic problems have greatly changed what is happening in the country. In a few months, Belarusians have learned to self-organize. The presidential elections provoked a wave of the largest protest in the country’s history! But the tyrant does not want to give up his throne. At least 5 people were killed (some died under strange circumstances). Thousands of people were beaten and disabled by the violence of the police. More than 15 thousand have been detained and sentenced on administrative cases. More than 500 criminal cases have been initiated. At least 200 people are awaiting trial in the pre-trial detention center (including at least four
anarchists and four anti-fascists). Read the rest of this entry »

Sabotage of CCTV installation in Pontianak City by ‘Maverick Cell – FAI’ (Indonesia)

November 13th, 2020

As we’ve seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, the State takes advantage of the situation with (offline and online) monitoring, controlled by police and also through technological devices, for example CCTV, smart phones, etc. Their reasons for this situation are, as we know very well, is in the name of public safety, which is an illusion repeated over and over.

We are faced with a situation that is uncertain, we do not know when the pandemic will end and at the same time the State is intensifying its control technology, on which the use is augmented and enhanced, CCTV for example. At the start of the pandemic we found that surveillance of urban space with CCTV increased and active police-army patrols as well. This situation makes the resistance movement decrease, we are “required” to stay put, to isolate oneself. But is this any logical reason not to follow up with the rebels on the streets? We are sure and our answer is no.

We refuse to be passive in the midst of the control and seizure of living space by the State, government and police. However, due to this pandemic and the situation of contamination, we must seek a gap – without meaning to be arrogant – and to simultaneously maintain the health of oneself and with shared affinity and continue the rebellion (albeit minimal and inadequate). We believe it can be done. Because of this attitude, on November 13 on one of the roads of Pontianak city, we sabotaged the CCTV and take responsible for this action.

And lastly, we are in solidarity with fellow Italian anarchists in Operation Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, who were repressed by the public prosecutor and Brenner Court. And for fellow Belarusian anarchists, and to Monica and Francisco, also to Gabriel Pombo, also to Tanggerang and Makassar fellow anarchists, and for all imprisoned anarchists all over the world. Our attacks are dedicated to you, without terms and conditions.

Fight Control Technology!
Fight the Prison and For the Release of All Prisoners!
Long live anarchy, long live the insurrection!

Maverick Cell – Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI)

Sebagaimana yang kita amati di masa pandemi Covid-19 ini, negara memanfaatkan situasi tersebut dengan pemantauan (offline dan online) terkontrol dengan aparat polisi dan juga melalui perangkat teknologi, misalnya cctv, ponsel pintar, dll. Alasan mereka atas situasi ini kita tahu betul ialah atasnama keamanan masyarakat, ilusi yang berulang-ulang.

Kita dihadapi dengan situasi yang tidak pasti kapan akan berakhirnya pandemi ini dan disisi yang sama bahwa negara memasifkan pengontrolan teknologi, dimana penggunaan ini ditambah dan ditingkatkan, cctv misalnya. Di awal pandemi kami mendapati bahwa pengawasan ruang kota dengan cctv bertambah dan patroli polisi-tentara yang aktif. Situasi ini membuat gerakan perlawanan menjadi menurun, dimana kita “mengharuskan” untuk tetap diam di tempat, mengasingkan diri sendiri. Namun apakah ini alasan yang logis untuk tidak melanjuti pemberontak di jalanan? Kami yakin dan jawaban kami adalah tidak.

Kami menolak untuk menjadi pasif ditengah-tengah pengontrolan dan perampasan ruang hidup oleh negara, pemerintah dan polisi. Namun dikarenakan situasi pandemi dan pengontoral ini kita harus mencari celah–tanpa bermaksud sombong– dan secara bersamaan untuk tetap menjaga kesehatan diri sendiri maupun bersama afinitas (meskipun minimal dan tidak memadai) dan melanjutkan pemberontakan. Kami yakin ini bisa dilakukan. Karena sikap inilah, pada tanggal 13 November di salah satu ruas jalan kota Pontianak, kami menyabotase perangkat cctv dan kami bertanggung jawab atas tindakan ini.

Dan sisi lain, kami bersolidaritas dengan rekan-rekan anarkis Italia dalam Operasi Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, yang di represif oleh jaksa penuntut umum dan pengadilan Brenner. Dan juga untuk rekan-rekan anarkis Belarusia, juga kepada Monica dan Francisco, juga kepada Gabriel Pombo, juga kepada rekan-rekan anarkis Tanggerang dan Makassar, dan untuk semua tahanan anarkis seluruh dunia. Serangan kami didekasikan untuk kalian, tanpa syarat.

Lawan Teknologi Kontrol!
Lawan Penjara dan Untuk Pembebasan Semua Tahanan!
Panjang Umur Anarki, Panjang Umur Insureksi!

Brussels, Belgium – Verdict of the Court of Appeal

November 13th, 2020

On Thursday, November 12th, the judge of the Appeals Court in Brussels made its decision public concerning the case against anarchists accused of criminal association and various crimes;

2 persons got 10 months of probation (during 5 years)
1 person got 8 months of probation (during 5 years)
1 person got 6 months of probation (during 3 years)
5 persons got a suspension of sentencing (during 3 years)
1 person got acquitted
(2 persons got acquitted in first instance and were not part of the appeal)

People also got sentenced to paying fines and a part of the investigative and juridical costs, but the state will have to pay the bill for the phone taps (by far the biggest amount).

(A suspension of sentencing means the judge finds you guilty and doesn’t set a sentence, but leaves this up to the next judge if you get caught in a certain period of time for a similar crime – not very different from probation).

Contrainfo: diálogo/entrevista con el compañero Gustavo Rodriguez (Segunda parte)

November 12th, 2020

+ [Primera Parte]

C.I. Cuéntanos, qué repercusiones han tenido tus contribuciones en la galaxia anarquista, y cómo ves la acogida y/o rechazo –dependiendo de los sectores– a las reflexiones que haces, particularmente sobre la participación de lxs individuxs y grupos anárquicos en movimientos populares y luchas intermedias, tal como lo expresas en la trilogía Cartas a un/a chileno/a sobre la situación actual (I, II, III), sincronizado con los conflictos sociales de esta región, iniciados el 18 octubre del 2019 hasta antes del confinamiento por el Covid-19. ¿Crees que es importante nuestra participación en los movimientos populares y en el desarrollo de las luchas intermedias?

Desconozco si mis aportaciones han tenido algún tipo de “repercusión” en la galaxia anárquica y, mentiría si comento sobre la posible acogida o el rechazo de estas reflexiones. Es innegable que circulan y se difunden, lo que puede sugerir la existencia de un pequeñísimo “círculo receptor” pero, es imposible conocer el grado de aceptación o rechazo que tienen. Lo cierto, es que no estoy interesado en persuadir a nadie. Dentro de las limitaciones teóricas y, desde mi formación autodidacta y antidisciplinaria, he tratado de plasmar algunas reflexiones abriendo interrogantes. Es decir, me abstengo de dar respuestas. Hago hincapié en nuestras carencias y debilidades, con el propósito de estimular la reflexión de todas y todos los compañeros afines. Pero, cuando insisto en incitar la “reflexión”, no me refiero a profundizar en nuestras cavilaciones ni a entregarnos a la meditación abstracta ni a abonar nuevas páginas a la filosofía ni nada por el estilo. Se trata de “ver”. Es decir, abrir los ojos y echar un vistazo a lo que nos rodea. Algo que el animal humano ha dejado de hacer desde hace mucho tiempo en su afán de distanciarse de los demás animales en busca de un “propósito de vida”; lo que le ha llevado a crear en el inconsciente colectivo (con todas las implicaciones fascistas del término junguiano) el “mundo feliz” de Ciudad Esmeralda –la mágica tierra del Mago de Oz(1)– y a hacer obligatorio el uso de gafas verdes, para que los ilusos crean que todo lo que les rodea son esmeraldas.

Solidarity with imprisoned anarchist revolutionary from Gomel, Dzmitry Rezanovich (Belarus)

November 11th, 2020

On the 12th of November anarchist revolutionary from Gomel, Dzmitry Rezanovich will become 31. And he is meeting his birthday in prison.

Dima is an active participant of the anarchist movement in Belarus. In 2014 he joined the revolution on barricades of Maidan in Ukraine. Soon after this he crossed the Ukrainian-Russian border by train using his brothers passport, so he was detained on the railway station in Kursk (Russian Federation) and was passed into the hands of FSB. In Russia Dima spent 4 months in the deportation center in Kursk. There he participated in the 4-days long hunger strike against conditions of imprisonment. The struggle end up successfully so locked up people got the right to take shower every day and have home food from their friends and families. Dima refused to serve in the military of Belarus: “It is not interesting for me to serve in the military of Belarus. This army can be forced to serve against people, as I have noticed a lot of times. It’s better to accept prison for 2 years than go to army”. At the moment Dima is a hostage of the KGB together with 3 other anarchists. They were detained near the Belarus-Ukrainian border on the night of October 29. They were charged under part 3 of article 289 of the Criminal Code of Belarus (act of terrorism committed by an organized group) and article 295 of the Criminal Code of Belarus (illegal arms trafficing). Dima is refusing to testify.

We are calling for solidarity actions with rebel Dima Rezanovich! Let’s make actions during all this week.

Italien: Zwei Wochen Mobilität zur Unterstützung von angeklagten Anarchisten und Anarchistinnen

November 11th, 2020

PDF: Poster A3

Zwei Wochen Mobilität zur Unterstützung von angeklagten Anarchisten und Anarchistinnen

Heute erleben wir eine Verschärfung der Repression, die durch den Gesundheitsnotstand COVID-19 erleichtert wurde, und folglich eines Angriffs gegen alle Formen von Konflikten, einschließlich der anarchistischen Bewegung. In Italien werden bald Hunderte von Genossen und Genossinnen wegen verschiedener repressiver Operationen der Staatsanwaltschaft vor Gericht gestellt: “Op. Scripta Manent”, “Op. Panico”, “Op. Ritrovo”, “Op. Bialystok”, “Op. Lince”, “Op.Renata”, “Op. Scintilla”, “Op. Prometeo”, der Brenner-Prozess, der Prozess wegen des Angriffs auf den Sitz der “Lega Nord” in Treviso.

Industrie- und Finanzlobbys und Repressionsapparate scheinen zu regieren, und der Staat konzentriert sich darauf, die Praktik des direkten Handelns und sogar subversives Denken abzuschaffen. Und so wird die Verbindung von Epidemien mit der kapitalistischen Ausplünderung des Planeten zu einer Prämisse des “Terrorismus”, so wie jede Form der Mobilisierung zu einem “assoziativen Verbrechen” werden kann.
Als der Konflikt die Stärke der Revolte annahm – wie im März in den Gefängnissen – lautete die Antwort des Staates: bewaffnete Überfälle durch Schließer und Carabinieri, systematische Schlägereien und ein Massaker mit dem Tod von 15 Gefangenen.

Die Strafvollzugsverwaltung verbreitet und isoliert revolutionäre und Rebellen in den verschiedenen Kreisen des Gefängnissystems, sie verhindert jeglichen Kontakt zur Außenwelt und die physische Anwesenheit der Angeklagten in den Prozessen mit dem Einsatz von Videokonferenzen. Sie dehnt auf alle Gefangenen einige Inhaftierungspraktiken aus, die das “41 bis” Regime kennzeichnen, einschließlich die Reduzierung der Besuche (und nur mit Plexiglastrennwänden), Zensur der Korrespondenz, Zellensperrung.
Die Staatsanwälte zugleich rekonstruieren die Geschichte der anarchistischen Bewegung, indem sie revolutionäre Praktiken in “akzeptable” und “terroristisch” trennen.

Ein System, das nur soziale, wirtschaftliche und ökologische Katastrophen hervorruft, ist auf Angst gegründet und benutzt jeden Tag mehr und mehr die Sprache des Krieges.
Wir fordern daher eine zweiwöchige Mobilisierung vom 9. bis 24. November.


Damit die Fackel der Revolte niemals erlischt und immer neue Hände bereit sind, sie zu ergreifen.
In einer unsicheren Zeit, für uns, aber auch für die Herren, ist die einzige Gewissheit, dass Widerstand und Gegenangriff richtig sind.

Fantasma Number 4, November 2020

November 9th, 2020

PDF: Fantasma Number 4


Once a again darkness soaks a new day. I open my eyes and see the past years in fast motion: the jungle with its trees, its undergrowths and its branches which scratched my legs. These one liana which dangled not far from me while i was lost sitting on the ground. I remember like it was yesterday how I reached for it, straightened myself up and took heart again. There was wide green, high rocks, dark caves and deep canyons long after I blazed myself a trail out of the covert. All of a sudden I stepped in front of a gigantic waterfall with its tempting song of deadly maelstrom. Vainly it tried to attracted me from the waterside to ruin me. I walked on. Today the sky is cloudless and it seems to become a good day. I rub the sleep out of my eyes, listen shortly to the busy stillness and then get up from my way too soft mattress. My feet are hurting, they got sore from the long marches through the mist. But it is a good pain because it tells me that I left tracks behind. For all of those, which their life will bring on the same path. I arrived the city now, a new phase of life begins. Read the rest of this entry »
