Via Contrainfo:

On the 15th of August, friends and supporters of Marco Camenisch announced that the imprisoned comrade will conduct a limited hunger strike from 20/8 until 10/9, in the context of the latest anti-anarchist construct in Italy (‘operation boldness/ardire’), but also because of a series of humiliating harassments in Lenzburg prison every day.

Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva (Germany)

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Translated from Italian by act for freedom now/B.pd and j.

Italian translation from Parolearmate via Liberación Total

Anarchy will become synonymous with youth again. Once again it will kick out at the state of affairs that suffocates and crushes us; to resist and ALWAYS RESIST. To defend everything that is ours: freedom, the right to live, the right to everything that is indispensable both physically and spiritually.

And if we fall in the struggle, at least we’ll have the satisfaction of falling with our arms in hand.

And young (that not counted in years but the forever new ardour for resistance and attack) we will march towards the climax of Daring…

Anarchy!

Mario Vando

Comrades,

That the mass media are an integral part of the power apparatus is clearer on this occasion than ever before. At least, I wondered: when a hundred policemen storm the houses (and other spaces of the movement) of dozens of comrades and their families (on 13th June), how is it possible that at the same time the text of an ‘arrest warrant’ is already available on crook Silvio Berlusconi’s website, ready to be downloaded in PDF format? Especially if we consider that many of the accused had no possibility of knowing why they were being raided… (more…)

Op. Ardire – Open letter to the anarchist movement from Stefano Gabriele Fosco (Italy)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

from: informa-azione.info translated by Actforfreedomnow/sysiphus

We receive and are spreading this open letter to the anarchist movement, from Stefano Gabriele Fosco, anarchist comrade, prisoner since June 13 following the operation Ardire.

I sincerely thank all the bloggers who enter the hypertext links I refer to in order to facilitate understanding of this letter.

Open letter of Stefano Gabriele Fosco to the anarchist movement.

With due respect for the individual choices of comrades struck by the repression, I have always criticised anarchists who decided not to pronounce themselves concerning the accusations when they were arrested. Sure, it’s always good not to provide any information that could be useful to the investigations, but these silences have often come to affect solidarity itself.

If a comrade is accused of participating in some kind of direct action, for example, and the defence intends to demonstrate that they have nothing to do with the actions attributed to them, then it does not make sense for the movement to come out with the usual phrase “solidarity if innocent, even more if guilty.” (more…)

Letter of Marco Camenisch about Operation Ardire (Switzerland)

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Note from ABC Berlin: Anarchist Marco Camenisch, imprisoned in Switzerland, has drafted a first letter regarding the “operation boldness” (operazione ardire). He is one of the accused in this frenzied construct against anarchists in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Greece. Here follows a translation of Marco’s words (we gave it our best shot):

Brief no.1 about the latest anti-anarchist (baptized “bold”, what gives a marked effect to it…) construct by ROS (& f.) – Brutti

ROS stands for the special operations units, which I call dirty operations units (& forgers), since historically I’m a verity-abider. Lidia Brutti is the presiding GIP (judge for preliminary investigations) of the public prosecutor’s office in Perugia.

Preliminary remark: Until today I was not subject to official notices or reactions from the Swiss authorities, and have been informed little by little by the media and via my correspondence. (more…)

Letter from Stefano Fosco, one of the comrades of Culmine arrested on 13th June (Italy)

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

A bandit in a cage

Thanks to the warm support of the comrades of the Cassa Antirepressione delle Alpi Occidentali [Anti-repression Solidarity Fund of Western Alps], I communicate what follows:

On 13th June I was arrested in Pisa along with my comrade Elisa in the context of ‘Operation Ardire’ of the prosecutor from Perugia. The carabinieri ROS [Paramilitary police – Special Operations Unit] broke down our door and took me to the police barracks, where I was identified, subjected to DNA sample and heavily provoked. Later I was detained in the Don Bosco prison in Pisa. On 16th June I was questioned by the judge for preliminary investigation but – of course – I used the right not to answer. The next legal step will be the court of review. (more…)

Solidarity to the comrades struck by the operation “Ardire” (USA)

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

From Anarchist Library:

ENGLISH / CASTELLANO

Here at the library we don’t usually publish such statements and communiques, mainly because there are plenty of other places where solidarity can be expressed. Anyway, this time we want to express our unconditional solidarity to the comrades struck by the repression in Italy and elsewhere, following the shooting of Adinolfi.

We are disgusted by the behaviour of the various organizations which chose to distance themselves from the “violent ones”, starting a media campaign to “wash” their precious acronym and their precious ideology.

Needless to say, we are disgusted by the state, which opened the hunt to the (“evil”) anarchist.

Anarchist Library

“Solidaridad con lxs compañerxs golpeadxs por la Operacion “Osadía”

Aqui en la biblioteca usualmente no publicamos declaraciones o comunicados, principalmente porque hay muchos otros lugares donde la solidaridad puede ser expresada. De cualquier forma, esta vez queremos expresar nuestra incondicional solidaridad con los compañerxs golpeadxs por la represion en Italia y en cualquier lugar, posterior al ataque a Adinolfi.

Estamos asqueadxs por la conducta de varias organizaciones las cuales escogieron alejarse de “lxs violentxs”, iniciando una campaña mediatica para “limpiar” sus queridas siglas y su querida ideología.

Está de más decir que estamos asqueadxs del estado, el cual abrio la cazeria de lxs (“malvadxs”) anarquistas.”

Concerning Operation Ardire and collaborators-snitches who call themselves "anarchists" (Italy)

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

From Rojoscuro via Actforfree/Bpd:

Facing yet another repressive operation of the Italian state

“Operation Ardire” is the name of the recent repressive assault on our anarchist comrades. A number of rebels were arrested, others are under investigstion. Moreover arrest warrants were issued against dear comrades who are locked up in the dungeons of other countries, like Gabriel Pombo Da Silva (Germany), Marco Camenisch (Switzerland) and a number of members of the CCF, who are imprisoned in Greece.

'The Triumph of the Destroyer Genius' by Maurizio de mone (Edizioni Cerbero)

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

Translated from the Italian by Apio Ludd:

Ah! The odor and the stench blend.

Climbing the peak requires sharp nails and hands ready for the most painful wounds.

While you climb the peak of a decadent humanity, they fall, the rocks that crumble under your fingers fall.

To act boldly! To dare! Here they are, raging, the popular fears blended with Ressentiment toward our individual sovereignty… (more…)

'An Endless Vertex in the Abyss' by Federico Buono (Edizioni Cerbero)

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

This is a text from Federico Buono, one of the comrades investigated in the operation ‘Ardire’. He has chosen a non-judicial stance as concerns the charges pressed against him. May the nihilist germ spread.

AN ENDLESS VERTEX IN THE ABYSS

Anarchist and amoral anti-legalism

‘And in this way, whatever he has to endure, he does not despair in salvation. Fate leads him to the coffin, tied to the mad rope of hope.’

‘The Illusions of Mankind’ Eduardo Von Hartmann

In the afternoon of yesterday, 19th June, I was stopped in the city of Catania, where I’m living at the moment, by two Digos officers [political police] and taken to the police barracks.
There I was notified the act concerning the investigation on 270bis set up by nun Manuela Comodi. (more…)

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

From informa-azione via actforfree:

We learn from Soccorso Rosso Svizzero [RHI – SRI] that Marco Camenisch and Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, imprisoned in Switzerland and Germany respectively, haven’t so far received any notification of further restrictive measures, international rogatory, searches in the cells, etc, contrary to what had been ordered by the director of this repressive plot: public prosecutor Manuela Comodi from Perugia, an inquisitor looking for exotic ingredients in order to prepare the nth investigation on ‘crime of association’ against Italian anarchists.

Updates will follow.

Castellano:

Operación Osadia- Actualizaciones sobre Marco y Gabriel

Via Socorro Rojo de Suiza nos enteramos que Marco Camenish y Gabriel Pombo da Silva encarcelados en Suirza y Alemania respectivamente, no han recibido ninguna notificacion sobre medidas restrictivas, peticion internacional, registros de celdas,etc, al contrario de lo que ha sido ido ordenado por la directora de esta maquinacion represiva, la fiscal Manuela Comodi desde Perugia, una inquisidora en busca de ingredientes exoticos con el proposito de preparar una nueva investigacion de “asociacion ilicita” contra anarquistas en la región italiana.

Massive international repressive operation ‘Ardire’ launched against anarchists; A statement from Tomo + Prisoner addresses (Italy)

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

UPDATED WITH PRISONER ADDRESSES – FIRE TO THE STATE

From contra-info:

At 4 o’clock in the morning of June 13th, 2012, the carabiniers of the Special Operations Group (Raggruppamento Operativo Speciale, ROS) raided about forty homes, implementing the so-called ‘operation boldness’ (operazione ardire), a crackdown against people from the anarchist movement ordered by Manuela Comodi, public prosecutor of Perugia. According to the regime’s media, a total of 10 arrest warrants were issued—eight within Italy, one sent to Germany and one sent to Switzerland—while 24 suspects have been put under judicial investigation. The Italian bourgeois Press did not hesitate to connect the arrested with ‘the anarcho-insurrectionist FAI/FRI’. (more…)
