‘Towards insurrection’ by Alfredo M. Bonanno (Elephant Editions)

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Every time I start to talk I ask myself, ‘And if I didn’t want to say anything for example?’

The title of this debate is ‘Towards insurrection’. I said to myself, what does this ‘towards insurrection’ mean? That is, towards insurrection can mean writing, or talking anyway, or indicating a direction, something moving towards insurrection. I don’t know what it is that moves towards insurrection.

I know that’s what I’ve lived, and what I’ve seen, events that might seem like an insurrection in act. I later realised that it wasn’t an insurrection, it was a simple riot. Now we are talking about something that can push us towards a riot, something that happens just like that, all of a sudden, for a reason that one can’t foresee, in the street, in the squares, with a hundred thousand people coming out into the streets, is that what we’re talking about tonight?

I don’t think so. For me, that’s not an insurrection. A hundred thousand people coming out into the streets, destroying the town, smashing the shops, dancing their war dance on commodities, — because we are against commodities we anarchists – is that insurrection? No.

‘Tame Words from a Wild Heart’ by Jean Weir (Elephant Editions)

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017

Preamble

Words. Mere Words. The pages that follow are in part transcriptions of the spoken word—‘the wonder worker that is no more’, as Emma Goldman wrote wistfully over one hundred years ago when referring to the inadequacy of the spoken word to awaken thought and shake people out of their lethargy. Here in the twenty-first century anarchists no longer talk about spoken propaganda to awaken the masses, bemoaning the absence of orators such as Johann Most or Luigi Galleani. In rare encounters organized by comrades today ‘the masses’ are noticeably absent, they don’t even enter the equation. Organized meetings or ‘talks’ as they are dully referred to are well-attended if there are 50–100 comrades. But there is no need for panic. Now all but the most disconnected fossilized anarchists have moved beyond aims of a quantitative growth in a hypothetical anarchist movement—where discourses addressed ‘to the masses’ have degenerated into an insulting populism—to the elaboration of ideas and methods addressed towards immediate action and attack on power in all its forms. Numbers have ceased to be important for anarchists as a prerequisite for attack. The illusion of ‘Le Grand Soir’ was a wonderful dream, it kept the flame flickering and thousands of militants waiting in the wings.

No, lack of numbers is no cause for alarm. They are there, the exploited, all around us—are also ‘us’—and could take us by surprise again at any moment (as could we ourselves). In the realm of the quantitative our task is to experiment and spread an insurrectional method for the self-organization of the necessary destruction of power and subjugation. Small groups with intermediate destructive aims based on affinity that can multiply, spread horizontally and coordinate, without limit. The apparent rift between anarchist theory and practice thus disappears along with the false conflict between individual and mass, and not least the conviction that the tenets of anarchism must be espoused by the exploited before they can fight for their own freedom along with that of others. An informal practice of attack leads to freedom revealing itself qualitatively, in leaps and bounds, far from the straight line of quantity, education, progress and waiting. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: 'From Tuzluçayır to Kobane' – Interview With An Anarchist Warrior (Kurdistan)

Monday, July 6th, 2015

The following article is an interview with an environmentalist, vegetarian anarchist from Turkey who is a member of Sosyal Isyan (Social Insurrection) fighting as part of Birleşik Özgürlük Güçleri (United Freedom Forces) alongside the YPG / YPJ in Kobane, Rojava. The interview was conducted by H. Burak Öz and originally appeared on the jiyan.org website. We would like to thank the comrade Ece for translating the interview into English for us.

Environmentalist, vegetarian, anarchist combatants who fight in Kobane.

We are sitting at the headquarters of United Freedom Forces (Birleşik Özgürlük Güçleri) in Kobane. I ask for a cigarette from a fighter aiming to meet and talk with him. While he offers one, I’m asking how many group form the United Freedom Forces. He says that, this force consist of salvationists (Kurtuluşçular), MLSPB, TDP and anarchists and indicates that he is an anarchist too.

What is the aim of fighting here for the anarchists?

I’m one of the founders of Social Insurrection and also their spokesperson. When the attack of ISIS started in Kobane, in the name of international solidarity, not considering it too much, we idealized to raise the defense as International Brigades much like in the Spanish Civil War.

United Freedom Forces was formed by different socialist factions from Turkey. Being an anarchist, how did you become involved with this structure?

United Freedom Forces was founded when we arrived. We made a call to anarchists and ecologists. (more…)

Pula: Nothing is over, everything continues – RadioAzione Croatia (Croatia)

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

Received and translated to English by Act for freedom now!

Update: RadioAzione, Italy“To be or not to be… that’s not our question”

IN CROATIAN, IN ITALIAN, IN GREEK

On the morning of January 23, 2015 agents of the Croatian secret services – SOA – turned up here because they wanted to talk to me about my site, RadioAzione Croatia, and to my husband, anarchist comrade, Italian citizen, who runs and also hosts other anarchist sites (including RadioAzione), threatening him with expulsion.

Their discourse began with threats concerning my personal relationships, both current and future, assuming that these are and will only be realized with anarchists, not Croatian of course, warning me that Croatia has no intention of becoming a haunt for people who are a problem for their countries of origin. Here the reference to my relationship with the comrade of RadioAzione Italy is clear.

Of course the threats are not limited to my relationships with comrades, they also warn me that any foreign national who comes to visit me in Croatia in the future, anarchist or not, will be treated as suspicious. And then they get lost in the usual threats concerning my parents, my position as unemployed, possible raids, arrests etc.

Their intention was to intimidate me by threatening to isolate me here in Croatia, far from my ”Italian and Greek friends” (an expression that they used several times). Because they are well aware of the fact that I could not expect any cooperation, activities or whatever with the local movement.

They also tell me that they know other anarchists in Croatia, but that they, unlike me, do not constitute a problem, that I am a unique and singular case for these territories (hinting that other anarchists in Croatia do not care much for my ideas). And that they are also aware of the fact that I was the one to introduce insurrectionalist theories into these territories and beyond years ago, with translations of some texts of Alfredo M. Bonanno. A point that they particularly stressed. (more…)

Excerpt from 'Towards the generalisation of armed struggle' by Alfredo M. Bonanno (Elephant Editions)

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

Insurrection

It is within the perspective of generalised mass armed struggle that the insurrection takes on libertarian meaning, and marks the definitive critique of any ‘closed’ attempt to organise the management of the class conflict.

Generalised armed conflict is the natural outcome of a situation that is getting worse every day. The exploited are beginning to point out this necessity in a series of anti-institutional actions that are continually spreading. The isolated acts of punishment carried out by minority clandestine groups against some of those responsible for exploitation are coming to be accepted with satisfaction and approved by the mass.

Alfredo Bonanno o el anarquismo de praxis del siglo XXI (Mexico)

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

Alfredo Bonanno o el anarquismo de praxis del siglo XXI

“Las prácticas de acción directa son ahora el corolario de este bagaje conceptual remozado. Cara a cara contra el enemigo, sin mediaciones ni gestorías: he ahí la divisa y el emblema de una práctica de intención, orientación y potencialidad anarquista”.
Rafael Spósito (Daniel Barret)

Hace exactamente cuatro años, tres meses y 22 días, recibí la llamada de un entrañable compañero comunicándome una lamentable noticia: el querido Alfredo María Bonanno, había sido detenido tras una expropiación fallida en la ciudad de Trikala al norte de Grecia. Hoy, he tenido una breve conversación vía telefónica con el compa Alfredo que me produjo la misma indignación e impotencia que aquella trágica llamada.

En medio de la gritería y las expresiones altisonantes de los represores que le ordenaban apagar el teléfono, me informó que las autoridades migratorias le habían impedido el ingreso al territorio dominado por el Estado mexicano, declarándolo “persona non grata” por su presunta “peligrosidad” y “antecedentes penales”, motivo por el que lo han deportado a Argentina. Pese al poco tiempo que pudimos hablar sentí en sus escuetas palabras la fortaleza de un irreductible. Lo primero que le pregunté es cómo estaba de salud y me contestó que bien. Enfurecido, lo único que atiné a decirle es que lamentaba mucho la decisión de estos mierdas hijos de perra y me respondió optimista, con la serenidad y la condición reflexiva que lo caracteriza: “es lógico que esto nos pase”.

'Kegembiraan Yang Dipersenjatai' – Alfredo M Bonanno (Armed Joy – Indonesian)

KEGEMBIRAAN YANG DIPERSENJATAI – Alfredo M Bonanno

Introduksi

Buku ini ditulis pada tahun 1977 dalam suatu momentum perjuangan revolusioner yang terjadi di Italia, yang situasinya kini sangat jauh berbeda, sangat perlu untuk disimpan dalam ingatan kita. Pergerakan revolusioner termasuk di dalamnya gerakan anarkis, sepertinya mengalami fase perkembangan, dan segala hal mungkin dapat saja terjadi, meskipun secara umum meluas menjadi pemeberontakan bersenjata.

Namun yang penting adalah menghindari bahaya munculnya spesialisasi dan militerisasi, yang membatasi minoritas para militan yang berniat untuk memaksakan ribuan kamerad, dengan segala sumber daya yang dimilikinya berusaha menentang represi dan usaha negara—yang agak lemah dalam mengungkapkan kebenaran—kemudian menata kembali pola manajemen kapital.

Semua itu adalah situasi yang pernah terjadi di Italia, namun sesuatu yang serupa tengah berlangsung di Jerman, Paris, Britania Raya, dan di tempat-tempat lain.

Sepertinya merupakan hal yang esensial guna menghalangi berbagai aksi yang dilakukan setiap harinya oleh para kamerad terhadap orang-orang dan berbagai struktur kekuasaan, yang kemudian menggiringnya ke dalam logika terencana seperti yang diamini oleh partai bersenjata seperti Red Brigade1 di Italia.
