Buenos Aires, Argentina. June 2020
“…Anarchism is either illegal or it’s not anarchism. That is its essence and its meaning. Its nature. For the same reason, it sometimes seems so obvious to us that we forget to insist punctiliously on the anti-authoritarian and therefore, the consequently anti-systemic character of anarchism. Rabidly anti-systemic! We are against all authority. That is our maxim… That we are against the system of domination, that we are fighting against the social order as a whole, we are objecting to its order and the laws that support it. All laws have been and will be made to give legal support to oppression and domination…”
– Gustavo Rodriguez
This is an appeal to our friends, to our comrades, like-minded and not so like-minded. A warm invitation to practice beautiful disobedience and take back our lives. A call to conflict against all that exists here and now, assuming the consequences of a life at war.
For anyone who lives in the territory dominated by the Argentine State, or almost anywhere in the world, currently there is a state of alert in the face of the current situation. The appearance and expansion of covid-19 quickly became a global problem, and while we do not want to question its existence or veracity, we want to show how the “epidemiological outbreak” unmasks the harmfulness of the class society and neoliberal capitalism maintained by the States its main economic groups.

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…).

Italy: Updates about the Scripta Manent trial
For the date of July 1, 2020, the first appeal hearing of “Scripta Manent” trial has been established at the bunker hall of “Le Vallette” prison in Turin. The dates set for the appeal hearings are as follows: 1, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 July; 9, 11, 16 September.
In spite of the pandemic, the Court of Turin is among those that have guaranteed the holding of “important” trials, and with inmates, already scheduled for this summer. So presumably this date remains confirmed.
The comrades are accused of article 270 bis (subversive association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order) and for various anti-militarist actions, against the CPRs (Centri di permanenza per il rimpatrio, “Repatriation detention centres”, formerly known as CIEs, i.e. prisons for migrants), in solidarity with imprisoned anarchists, against barracks, headquarters and men of the institutions claimed by FAI and FAI/FRI (Federazione Anarchica Informale/Fronte Rivoluzionario Internazionale), from 2003 to date. The accused currently imprisoned will be in videoconference, as in all the last hearings of
the first degree.
In fact, during the period of the preliminary hearings, there was still no law requiring videoconferencing. Subsequently, at the beginning of the first degree, the law that provided for it was passed, which granted a year of time to prisons and courts to adapt, imposing, in that year, videoconferencing only on the defendants accused of being at the top of the “associations”. After one year, videoconferencing was applied to everyone as planned.
During the hearing on February 11, 2019, in the bunker hall of the Turin prison, a large group of comrades expressed their warm solidarity with the anarchists on trial. The prosecutor, Roberto Sparagna, was unable to take the floor to present his indictment. After several slogans and the reading of the text below, the Court interrupted the hearing. The courtroom was evicted through the intervention of the riot police.
Consistent with the strategy employed by the investigators to date, aimed at isolating the prisoners and undermining the support expressed to them, pursuing the various manifestations of closeness and solidarity, following the presence in the courtroom in February 2019 the Turin police headquarters issued about sixty “fogli di via” (prohibition to reside or to go to a specific municipality or area) from the city and seven accusations for interruption of public office and outrage.
It remains important to continue to show our solidarity with the defendants.
«Twenty years of the history of anarchism are being accused here. We are not accused, but this is our history and our revolutionary path. And it is precisely to this path that the practices on trial today belong.
We are all involved and the executioners of the State cannot define or understand our ideas and our lives.
Solidarity with anarchist and revolutionary prisoners!
Not a step backwards, Always Heads Up.
“Firmly and uncompromisingly towards our goal”.
SOLIDARITY AND STRENGTH TO THE COMRADES PRISONERS OF SOCIAL WAR!
FREEDOM FOR ANNA, MARCO, ALFREDO, NICOLA AND SANDRO!
Italia: Aggiornamenti sul processo Scripta Manent
Per la data del 1° luglio è stata stabilita la prima udienza di appello del processo Scripta Manent presso l’aula bunker delle Vallette di Torino. Le date fissate per le udienze di appello sono queste: 1, 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 luglio; 9, 11, 16 settembre.
Nonostante la pandemia, il Tribunale di Torino è fra quelli che hanno garantito lo svolgersi di processi “importanti”, e con detenuti, già in calendario per questa estate. Quindi presumibilmente questa data rimane in effetti confermata.
I/le compagni/e imputati/e sono accusati di 270 bis e per varie azioni antimilitariste, contro i CPR, in solidarietà agli anarchici
prigionieri, contro caserme, sedi e uomini delle istituzioni a firma FAI e FAI/FRI, dal 2003 ad oggi. Gli imputati prigionieri saranno in videoconferenza, come in tutte le ultime udienze del primo grado.
Infatti durante il periodo delle udienze preliminari non c’era ancora nessuna legge che imponesse la videoconferenza. Poi, all’inizio del primo grado è passata la legge che però concedeva un anno di tempo a carceri e tribunali per adeguarsi, imponendo in quell’anno di adeguamento la videoconferenza solo agli imputati accusati di essere ai vertici delle “associazioni”. Passato l’arco di tempo di un anno, la videoconferenza è stata applicata a tutti/e come previsto.
All’udienza dell’11 febbraio 2019, sempre nell’aula bunker del carcere di Torino, un nutrito gruppo di compagni e compagne ha espresso la sua calorosa solidarietà agli anarchici/e sotto processo. Il PM Roberto Sparagna, è stato impossibilitato a prendere parola per formulare la sua requisitoria. Dopo diversi slogan e la lettura del testo sottostante, la Corte ha interrotto l’udienza. L’aula è stata sgomberata dall’intervento delle squadre antisommossa.
Coerentemente alla strategia impiegata dagli inquirenti fino ad ora, tesa a isolare i prigionieri e minare il sostegno espresso loro, perseguendo le varie manifestazioni di vicinanza e solidarietà, la questura di Torino in seguito alla presenza in aula di febbraio, ha emesso una sessantina di fogli di via dalla città, e sette denunce per interruzione di ufficio ed oltraggio in concorso.
Rimane importante continuare a dimostrare la nostra solidarietà agli/le imputati/e.
«Qui si stanno mettendo sotto accusa 20 anni di storia dell’anarchismo.
Non siamo imputati, ma questa è la nostra storia ed il nostro percorso rivoluzionario.
E proprio a questo percorso appartengono le pratiche oggi sotto processo.
Siamo tutti coinvolti e i boia dello stato non possono definire né comprendere le nostre idee e le nostre vite.
Solidarietà ai prigionieri anarchici e rivoluzionari!
Non un passo indietro, Sempre A Testa Alta.
“Fermamente e senza compromessi verso il nostro obiettivo”.
SOLIDARIETA’ E FORZA AI COMPAGNI PRIGIONIERI DELLA GUERRA SOCIALE!
LIBERTA’ PER ANNA, MARCO, ALFREDO, NICOLA E SANDRO!
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!

On Wednesday, 24.07, anarchist comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos, members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire were released. The comrades were originally convicted with sentences of over 70 years, which were reduced to 20. The comrades made use of the Paraskevopoulos law that was introduced by the previous SYRIZA-led government and were released after having served 8 years of their 20 year sentences.
Gerasimos Tsakalos was arrested with his friend and comrade Panagiotis Argyros on November 1, 2010. Their arrests took place after a parcel bomb was sent to a courier company in Pagrati. Five months later, Christos Tsakalos was arrested in a coordinated counter-terrorism operation.
After their arrests they claimed full responsibility for their actions and proclaimed themselves “proud members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”. During their imprisonment in Korydallos prison, the CCF claimed responsibility for Phoenix Project actions, including the bombing of the Prison Director’s car as well as sending a parcel bomb to the former head of the anti-terrorism unit, Dimitris Chorianopoulos.

“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.
The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. (more…)

Everything was ready from the morning: journalists and live TV on the national channel…
A miserable judge in Turin, Roberto Sparagna, left no stone unturned in putting pressure on a gang of equally miserable individuals (jury led by judge Alessandra Salvadori).
A poor madman in search of fame after having moved from the anti-mafia prosecution to the terrorism one, he succeeded where other miserable colleagues of his had failed for decades: subversive association for the purposes of terrorism.
Already I see him in a few days’ time sitting on the Vespa armchairs in “Porta a Porta” [long-standing populist TV news show], along with some failed criminologist spouting off about anarchism and how it is divided into groups, smaller groups, good and bad and his heroic deeds against the F.A.I.-F.R.I.

“I know that there will be an end to this fight between the formidable arsenal of the State and me. I know that I will be vanquished, I will be the weaker, but I hope I can make you pay dearly for the victory.”
– Octave Garnier
On this date over 100 years ago, 21st of April 1913, Illegalist and Individualist anarchist Raymond Callemin was executed by guillotine by order of the French state.
On the anniversary of his execution I write this in memory of all those that have fallen or been jailed in the social war against society.
The illegalist current is an offshoot of individualist anarchism. Refusing to be exploited, forced to work for some rich tyrant, instead the illegalist chooses to rob them. It’s an anti-work ethic for individual autonomy to be realised in real life right away through Individual expropriation also known as individual reclamation. (more…)

Athens, Greece: Grenade Attack Against the Russian Consulate by FAI / FRI Revenge Cell ‘Mikhail Zhlobitsky’
Friday, April 19th, 2019
We assume responsibility for the grenade assault on the Russian Consulate on Tzavella Street in Chalandri [suburb in Northern Athens] on March 22.
Each state seeks continuity, which is of particular importance both for its existence and for the preservation and expansion of its vital space. We define the vital space of a state structure as a concept that raises every economic and spatial interest. Applying this policy to us is what we commonly call imperialism. This policy is not a strategic choice of a state, but it is indistinguishable from its very existence. Automatically, each state applies or follows the imperialist policy of an alliance in that country. This position comes to overthrow the rhetoric of the holy fellowship of the smaller ones in dynamic states towards the more powerful ones, which the left has been trying to make for years and parts of the anarchist space embraces. Over the years, many alliances have been built up and, as a result, many skirmishes, depending on the interests at stake. Under the veil of these inter-axiomatic contrasts in combination with the economic and political conjuncture, discrepancies in the dynamics of each state are created or adjusted. Relationships between states have always been a dynamic condition that is modified on the subject rather than a static situation. (more…)

ABOUT THE REPRESSION AGAINST ANARCHISTS IN ITALY
Unfortunately, Italy has a long history of repressive operations against anarchists. Since Operation Marini in 90s, the waves of repression against comrades, which brought into jail many people with charges of terrorism or criminal association, were countless. Just to name a few of the biggest repressive operations: Cervantes, Croce Nera, Ardire, Mangiafuoco, Thor, Ixodidae, Nottetempo, Fuoriluogo…
These operations usually lead to several house raids in all Italy and to the arrest of several comrades who spend 1 or 2 years in pre-trial detention. Then they face trials with charges of ‘association’ and usually they are also accused of several direct actions for which the inquisitors never found any responsible. Sometimes the public engagement of these comrades in the anarchist struggle and their open expression of anarchist ideas (direct actions support, prisoners solidarity, running an anarchist magazine or website and so on) is the only evidence that the prosecutors bring into the court. For this reason, in the majority of the cases all the accused are later acquitted at the trial, but only after having spent many months or years in prison.
Besides these huge operations, there is a constant small-scale repression against local anarchist groups which are especially active on the territory, for example with struggles against police repression, evictions, detention centres for migrants, jails, gentrification, corporate interests… In these cases anarchists are constantly repressed with recurring trials and spend much of their time going in and out of prison, house arrest or other restrictions of their freedom. This kind of police strategy of trying to burn out comrades with the aim of destroying the local anarchist group happens in many cities but since many years has been especially strong in Torino.
