The following interview is the 3rd part in an ongoing dialogue between anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito, who is currently imprisoned at Ferrara Prison, and the editors of the Italian anarchist newspaper Vetriolo [Vitriol]. As far as we know, the first part of the interview has not been made available in English, however part two was translated by the Abolition Media Worldwide comrades in April 2019. Vetriolo have published the interview in parts, and have plans to publish the interview in its entirety in a forthcoming publication. We hope that we have captured the original spirit of the interview with our translation, however we are acutely aware of the possibility that some errors may have been made and we welcome any correspondence regarding any errors that may need correcting. To request copies of Vetriolo, they can be contacted via vetriolo[at]autistici.org
In some of your recent writings you have wanted to open a debate on: action and affinity groups, individual actions, claims of responsibility, ways to informally organize oneself among anarchists and propaganda through direct action. There are many different experiences that reach the present day, many and diverse within the different tensions of anarchism. We do not believe that there is, for the anarchism of action, an unavailability or impossibility with respect to the current historical context. Anarchists, in different ways and in every age, have always acted “here and now”. We would like to ask you, evaluating these experiences and different ways of acting and organizing in a horizontal and anti-authoritarian way: could one say that there is, especially in Italy, an ideological prejudice against “informal organization”, “anarchist groups”, and “claims of responsibility”? Equally, is the debate, which often ends up in mockery for its own sake, far from being able to confirm absolute validity or theoretical-practical evidence regarding “reproducibility, informality, anonymity”, in the Italian context conditioned by methodical, functional and a priori productive calculations, in a distorted logic of “factions”?
The “ideological” prejudice against informal organisation here is nothing new. Although there is no doubt that some concretizations of informal practice are more acceptable to “classical” anarchist organising than others. The “small” reproducible, unclaimed actions against structures of domination, without initials of any kind, create fewer problems than actions that endanger the lives of men and women in power, especially if these are claimed with initials that have a constancy over time. The former compared to the latter are more acceptable to the “movement” for the simple reason that they give rise to less intense repression by the State. The rejection of insurrectionism or informal experiences such as FAI/FRI by “classical” anarchism is almost always motivated as an “ethical” rejection of violence and specifically of certain actions (bomb attacks, arson attacks, parcel bombs, knee-cappings, expropriations…).

Decidimos fazer este lançamento no dia 22 de maio, oportuna rememoração do Dia do Caos, em memória do companheiro anarquista Mauricio Morales, quem, num dia como hoje, no ano 2009, se despediu da vida lutando contra o poder, quando a bomba que carregava na mochila explodiu acidentalmente a poucos metros da Escola de Agentes Penitenciários do Chile.
Dedicamos este livro a todxs nossxs companheiros em prisão mundo afora, especialmente para os companheiros Alfredo Cóspito, encarcerado na Itália e para o querido Gabriel Pombo da Silva, que foi detido em Portugal e extraditado para Espanha, no momento em que este livro saía à luz.

Italia: Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara. Terza parte (Vetriolo)
Thursday, March 26th, 2020
Il testo che riportiamo qui è la terza e ultima parte di “Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara”, pubblicata nel mese di marzo 2020 nel numero 4 del giornale anarchico “Vetriolo”. Le parti prima e seconda sono state pubblicate rispettivamente nel numero 2 (autunno 2018) e 3 (inverno 2019). Data la complessità e la vastità degli argomenti trattati e del testo stesso, non è stato possibile pubblicarlo integralmente in un solo numero del giornale e si è scelto di suddividerlo in tre parti. Tutto lo scritto verrà stampato in un volume di prossima pubblicazione.
Con l’occasione, segnaliamo e correggiamo un errore presente nella terza parte (invitiamo a fare attenzione a questo passaggio durante la lettura del giornale). L’errore si trova nella quarta colonna di pagina 11, righe 4 – 11. Per una maggiore comprensione riportiamo l’intera frase: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivoluzione» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».
L’errore è nella parola «rivoluzione», cui bisogna sostituire «rivolta». Quindi la frase corretta è: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivolta» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».

“…Light in the Shadow
The enemy’s got to watch out
That only from that ancient place
The foundation stone could emerge
Which is spreading out of control
This land called
Our beloved America
And if necessary in the future
We will change the name.”
– Sergio Terenzi (el Urubu)
1. (A) INTRO MODE
The handful of reflections that follow have come to us almost unintentionally. They are one more contribution to the debate on the issues that move us; a small stop on the troubled road we are now travelling. It is good to share visions about what worries us and throw them like a bottle into the sea… Perhaps they will serve to fertilize the sowing and/or sharpen the tools suitable to advance in the realization of what we dream…To all the warriors of praxis a sincere embrace from the region that fails to dominate (as they would like) the self-proclaimed state of Sargentino. May 1000 new rebellions flourish.
II. OF BEINGS AND DEEDS
We do not underestimate or mock the many ancient pagan cultures that are seeing, in these present times, the signs of an inevitable decline throughout the entire ill-treated and agonized blue planet that we inhabit. And we don’t dismiss it because (among other things…) beyond mysticism and conspiracies, the harsh reality shows us that this IS so. We feel the vertigo of the events in our skin; and we consider that it is a “self-fulfilling prophecy”. We refuse to look the other way as it would be alienating. The question is rather: what do we do?

ABOUT A SENTENCE AND SOMETHING MORE
I don’t deny a certain monomania. I have often had to deal with repression. I have undergone it, faced it, badly tried to understand something of it. I wrote about it for years in magazines, if anything because it concerned me and other comrades personally. Ironically, I find myself doing the same thing now for some years, but as a prisoner and along with others in the same condition, concerning the investigation that led to my arrest and that of various other comrades, with five of us being sentenced. I’d happily do without being the centre of attention, but I want to keep all the comrades informed. I want it because a trial is the culmination of various experiences that it’s good to discuss again at times in order not to let them fall to the level of futile opinionism.
In the so called “Scripta Manent” trial all sorts of things were put together. In a year and a half of court hearings – not to mention the amount of documents submitted – personal biographies were obviously dealt with regarding the accused and not only – there were historical-cop digressions on anarchy, discussion of previous judicial proceedings against anarchists, armed practices – past and present – publishing and street experiences… “A sometimes inextricable tangle”, a judge opens in the premise of the sentence motivations report. It is already good news to know that anarchy is incomprehensible to women and men of law. But let’s see what they write at the end of the first grade trial. [Everything in inverted comas (“”) is taken from the sentence motivations report]. (more…)

“Black December” is now 10 years old and Mauricio Morales was the detonator.
Do you remember? They haven’t stopped, those ideas and practices that rose (in)surged from the collective desire proposed by multiple anarchic individuals who put it to the test.
Indeed, the struggle is an essay that claims its execution and that must be experienced through practice to understand all the potentials that it offers us. Theorisations that are not tested in practice will always remain unknown.
We have verified (in/with praxis) that determination (individual will) can generate common moments and framesworks of collective struggle through active propositions. The problems in the (at least in what is committed as the F.A.I.–F.R.I.) project begins when it’s own postulates proposed by this informal organization model are ignored. They are:
1 – Seditious solidarity.
2 – Anarchic campaigns.
3 – Communication between groups and related individuals.
We know that the informal organization (also called T.I.A. in Latin America) at an international level (with or without acronyms) has its limitations, especially when the various insurgent tendencies are inclined to dispute discursively between themselves instead of complementing each other, both in the theoretical as in the practical.
Total liberation does not mean alienation or fratricidal alienation or competition among the active groups.
Who in one way or another rejoices in the end of “obrerismo mendicante”, which delegated all activism to obsolete organizations in the era of technological capital. We see in the years of the new anarchism of praxis that appeals are of no use for ourselves.
It is not a reflection of what it says. Be what is said and say what is done, it is what makes the verb meaningful and gives weight to the word.
I once read somewhere about: “Language creates a reality and reality creates a language… “.
This they have understood (even better than us) those Italian inquisitors and hence their fixation with public debates and what everyone wrote.
[Operation] “Ardire” (because it is bold to talk about what we dream), “Scripta Manent” (because the written word endures) and thus all the repression of this last decade has been limited to prosecuting all that is desired, everything written or said and aimed at all sabotage carried out by anarchists.
Unfortunately, what is written as much as it remains (if not assumed so in the first instance) does not alter material reality… and, unfortunately, interpretive juggling either. Or put another way: the chemical formula of the tritolo is not tritolo.*
We are already getting used to repeating slogans (“Fight Week”, “Black December”, etc.) without worrying and worrying about the most important: our affinity groups and practical organization.
A – Procure material and economic means.
B – Carry out anarchic campaigns and do not start a new proposal until the previous one is terminated.
Only acting as one hand will each finger have power and sense.
I do not question other groups of the “Anarchist Galaxy” but, only and exclusively, those that are inspired by the F.A.I./F.R.I./C.C.F. to act.
Our power can only be in the sum of action groups that act coordinated on all three points.
We must recognize that the legacy (both theoretical and practical) of the subversive project F.A.I.-F.R.I.-C.C.F., is here to stay.
In addition, both “Black International Editions”, and “Black International of Praxis” continue their editorials and mutual knowledge.
For Black December!
For conscious and organized action!
Long live anarchy!
Long live the companions in war!
Gabriel Pombo Da Silva,
Last days of the year 2019.

24 OCTOBER TO 1 NOVEMBER. INTERNATIONAL WEEK IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE REVOLT IN CHILE.
”Far from the specialists of solidarity who turn it into a jocular farce of humanism and victimization mutilating all our combative characteristics, anarchist solidarity does not fit into rules or infallible recipes.
The essence of solidarity is the continuation and sharpening of the anarchist offensive with every means, from a sacrilegious and aggressive poster to an action with explosive or shots against the organs of the existent. Solidarity transmits the solid message that everything continues and, as other compas have already said before us” :
“Solidarity between anarchists is not just words…”
The news about the revolt in the territory dominated by the State of Chile has travelled this globalised world, not only from last Friday October 18 and the military’s presence in the streets with the respective curfew, but also from the constant putting in practice that the anarchists have managed to uphold throughout the years, standing firm against long sentences and even death of comrades in offensive actions.
Today democracy is showing its face without masks, that face that the prisoners and the populations have to suffer every day, the face of torture, rape and death around the corner, today the State is extending and launching orders to its minions, police and military have to fulfill the functions for which they were programmed, now bluntly, and the revolt responds with dignity, stones, incendiary devices, looting and incipient news of armed attacks against police stations.
From outside this territory we feel the air of rebellion and it calls us back to solidarity action with the weapons that we know how to forge, with the offensive in all the imaginative ways and the conviction that the social war transcends every border, physical and mental.
LET’S BREAK DOWN THE MEDIA FENCE!
LET’S EXTEND THE BLACK INTERNATIONAL AGAINST EVERY FORM OF AUTHORITY.
Monday, December 3rd, 2018
December is still a month marked with the stamp of the insurgent memory of the
anarchists who rise up in open antagonism against any form of power.
December 2018 will be 10 years since the comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos was
snatched from the streets when he was killed by police bullets in the neighborhood
of Exarcheia, Greece, in 2008. It is also the month that will mark 5 years since the
comrade Sebastián Oversluij was killed by the bullets of a mercenary of capital
during a bank expropriation in 2013 in Chile.
Because the memory of our dead is fuel to stoke the flames of our lives in permanent revolt, the Black December is once again a meeting point of multifaceted action, and to reflect upon ourselves and on our strengths in this minority struggle and about the current manifestations of our totalitarian enemy, which is power and its world of hierarchies, fascism. patriarchy, speciesism and the multiple expressions of the desire for superiority of some over others.
Once again, Black December continues to be an invitation for insurgent communication via the savage heat of offensive action against power.
In iconoclastic memory of our dead.
Offensive solidarity with the comrades who face repression in Argentina, Brazil,
Chile, Russia, Italy, Greece and all over the world.
For a Black December, long live anarchy!

From the website La Rebellion de las Palabras, critique of the excremental choir calling themselves “Eco-Extremist Mafia” – aiming at the eco-fascist and nihilist-right groupscule Individualists Tending toward the Wild (ITS), written by anarchist-insurrectionalist groups, CCF-Mexico, anonymous others in the territory of the Mexican State:
“The Tiger, in its unconquered gait, accumulates the memory and the traces of the road travelled, to stubbornly reaffirm it; unrestricted freedom that does not assure food but which a priori omits any possibility of degenerating into a herd or of assenting to grazing. Indomitable and irreducible, it confronts the most tenacious enemies. To do this it wields its instincts, taking advantage of its portentous night vision, its prodigious smell and its finely tuned ear. In its right attack: it disfigures, tears, kills and dies, to be reborn indomitable and fierce. Nothing escapes this becoming and it is exposed to the most daring hunters and the most tenacious tamers, veterinarians and circuses, taverns and altars, customs and laws, systems of thought and political institutions. Everything is shaken, torn or eliminated in this movement of which only the imagination can disern a principle but of which nothing and no one is able to decipher its objectives and its end. (…) Anarchism, conceived not as an inescapable realization but as a permanent tension embodied in an open configuration of thought and action, is also a tiger, indomitable and fierce, affected from end to end by this capricious walk into freedom.” – Gustavo Rodríguez
“Everything that we can identify as negative elements within our “space “, is also the responsibility of each of us to contribute to eliminate them. Bureaucracy, hegemony, informal hierarchies, intrigues, false friendships and false ‘comrades’ stabbing our backs have existed since the dawn of the so-called anarchist movement, because they are an intrinsic part of the human factor and our contradictions that constantly arise and are in conflict with each other. All these pathologies are due to attitudes that do not properly belong to a particular anarchist tendency but are present in all, and as long as they are not treated for what they really are, we will find them in front of us again and again.” – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / Metropolitan Violence Cell
To the comrades in the Mexican region and the world, to the incendiaries and refractories of the planet, to the internationalists committed to a new coordination of anarchic informality:
Exactly 5 years and seven months ago we signed a “joint statement” at the request of a comrade for whom we feel great affection and respect. That text was entitled “2nd Joint Statement of the Anarchist Insurrectional and Eco-Anarchist Groups”. It was an unquestionably necessary writing given the context in which it was written and so we clarified it from the first lines: (more…)

“No es nuestro objetivo cansar a lxs lectorxs con un seco y pomposo discurso político, porque creemos que el lenguaje de unx guerrillerx urbanx anarquista puede ser sencillo y conciso, contestando a las cuestiones que nos ocupan cotidianamente.
Estamos segurxs que las cosas más importantes siempre se dicen de la manera más simple. Además, lo que escribimos en este texto es el resultado de los debates y experiencias que hemos ido acumulando al tomar parte en la insurrección permanente anarquista. En ningún caso se trata de alguna infalible fórmula de pensamiento ni tampoco de un manual de uso de la violencia anarquista.
Consideramos que la edición del folleto ‘La nueva guerrilla urbana anarquista’ constituye un fragmento de una discusión más amplia que no termina con su lectura sino que, al contrario: comienza con ella…”

First release of Black International Editions: "Mapping the Fire" – International Words of Solidarity with the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF)
Monday, October 8th, 2012
PDF: English & Spanish versions (Click “Save As” to download)
“This pamphlet is a meeting point of comrades from all over the world. An imaginary meeting since the walls and bars of the prisons where we are temporarily keep our bodies hostage. But our meanings remain free, escape from the cells of prison and are expressed with words continuing to provoke authority.
Words that still smell of fire and gunpowder, words which carry with them all of our hate for the system, words unrepentant and armed, words which transfer stresses and desires, words which break the isolation of prison, words full of passion for the mutiny we want to continue, words from Chile, Mexico, America, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Indonesia…
The letters sent to us by the hostage comrades, replying thus to the international call of solidarity of the CCF is not just mail between prisoners.
Our plan for a Black International of imprisoned anarchists, is not simply “a nice theory” which begins and ends inside printed words. It is the deposit of memory which exists, in a move forward.
A memory which does not always count its moments with common terms and common reference points. By reading this pamphlet someone can discover an international galaxy of points of views and positions with comrades whose references speak of the class war and the proletariat and others who speak of nihilism and anti-socialism.
This difference for us is not a contradiction. On the contrary it reveals the invisible line which connects all forms of anarchy and dispute into an international revolutionary front which has as its aim to destroy every form of authority.” Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Excerpt from the Introduction)
Today in Greece, October 8th, a trial for the case of the Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire will take place in a specially converted room in the female prisons of Korydallos prisons. The trial concerns the arrests in Volos and the arrests on December 4th, the sending of the 14 incendiary anti-system parcels and the clash in Pefki, 17 comrades are on trial. There will be a solidarity demonstration at the courthouse of the female prisons of Korydallos on this day at 9am.
This publication, the first from Black International Editions, is released online and in paper format from three countries – Greece, Chile and United Kingdom, as an act of solidarity and confrontation to this court process against the CCF and their co-accused. The words of the anarchist prisoners who have responded to the international solidarity call of the CCF meet with the statements of the groups of the international network for counter-information and translation. Together with the armed words of the CCF, a new international revolutionary front is drawn out, this new publication maps the fire that has been spreading across oceans into many territories. In the words of Eat, imprisoned member of Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell, FAI Indonesia:
“We are the new chaotic virus, the ghost of freedom, the uncontrollable international plague of revolt.”
For Greek language version, you can find this publication on paper at various self-organised spaces in Exarchia, Athens, Greece, or email sal.spf(at)gmail.com for copies.
In Santiago, Chile, find it at Biblioteca La Hiedra or via Entropia Ediciones in a Spanish language version.
In UK, find it at anarchist spaces, like Kebele in Bristol, or 56a Infoshop in London. You can also find it at the 2012 London Anarchist Bookfair where Elephant Editions will have copies – elephanteditions(at)riseup.net
The email for contact with the imprisoned CCF members has moved to riseup.net’s mail server. From now on, you can communicate at sinomosiapf(at)riseup.net

Mapeando el Fuego
Casi un año ha pasado desde que la Conspiración de las Células del Fuego lanzara una propuesta internacional para la edición de un cuadernillo. Cuadernillo que se transformó en un libro de casi 200 páginas.
Hoy comenzará un nuevo juicio contra la Conspiración. Esta vez será un juicio mucho más grande que probablemente dure dos años, y a partir de ahora, todxs lxs compas enfrentarán juntxs un mismo juicio. Además, también estará como imputado Konstantino Papadopoulos (“Kostas”), quien fue arrestado en la última redada contra el grupo (14 de marzo), pero que no está en prisión. Por otra parte, el juicio también involucra a Theófilos y otrxs 4 compas. Por ésta nueva acusación hay dos compas que han debido comenzar sus propios periodos de clandestinidad: Dimitris Politis y Giannis Mihailidis.
El juicio será en contra de 17 compañerxs y tiene de todo. A pesar de la acusación de “pertenencia a grupo terrorista”, habrá un nuevo juicio el 4 de diciembre en Volos (Pefki) por el asunto de los paquetes bomba. Lxs abogadxs creen que en el proceso se incorporarán los 250 ataques de la Conspiración. De ser así, dos personas más serían involucradas en toda esta maraña judicial. Los cargos aquí serían por infracción a la Ley Antiterrorista Griega: participación en organización terrorista, posesión de armas y explosivos, amenaza contra la vida y la propiedad, subversión, amenazas a la democracia, etc.
Los 250 ataques de la Conspiración se irán a juicio sólo por ser reivindicados por ella. De hecho, no existe ninguna prueba concreta que conecte a lxs compas con los ataques. En otras palabras, están presxs y serán condenadxs sólo por declararse miembrxs orgullosxs del grupo.
Además, si no se logra establecer nexos entre ataques y perpetradorxs (ni siquiera por insinuación o suposiciones), se les acusaría de instigar los ataques. En Grecia, hacer o instigar un ataque terrorista conlleva la misma condena.
Por esto no puede haber un mejor y más fuerte discurso de defensa que su voz compañerxs. Es de sus expresiones de solidaridad y tras ataques realizados por grupos anarquistas de acción directa, desde dónde lxs compañerxs de la Conspiración toman el valor de mirar directamente a los ojos de quienes les persiguen. Es algo que seguramente también han sentido todxs quienes enviaron sus cartas para este libro, encarceladxs en otros países y pagando el mismo precio por nuestra pasión común por la libertad.
En concreto, lo que editamos, a la vista del juicio, es un folleto con su contenido, siendo de sus palabras solidarias internacionales con el caso de la CCF.
Aportes desde Bulgaria, Alemania, Suiza, Chile, Italia, México, España, Grecia, Rusia, Argentina y Reino Unido, han sido recopilados. Han escrito presxs, procesadxs, grupos de acción, colectivos de contrainformación, editoriales e individualidades varias.
Este libro habla de la solidaridad. Este libro es solidaridad.
