Italy: Anarchist comrade Nico Aurigemma’s letter from prison – ‘Operation Bialystock’

FR | Un texte de Nico, depuis la prison de Terni, sur l’opération Bialystok

EL | Κείμενο του Nico, συλληφθέντα της επιχείρησης Bialystok

(28th September 2020)

ON ”OPERATION BIALYSTOK”

These short notes from a brief reading of the papers at my disposal concerning so-called Operation Bialystok were written to enlighten, albeit superficially given my subjective point of view, some of the salient contents of this new anti-anarchist investigation and the consequent repressive developments. The cyclical movements of the social conflict have always been followed by repressive waves, to the point that we often end up stating there is “nothing new under the sun”. However, analysing the changes in paradigm and the instruments being used along with those occurring in society as a whole means we can put them in context, identify their causes and specific goals and develop appropriate strategies of resistance and counter-attack. In fact repression changes and understanding it in its transformations should be of interest to those who are determined “always to do better” in the anarchist struggle against all power.

In the specific case that concerns me the most interesting part is the report that the prosecutor presented to the investigating judge with the request for custodial measures. The “wide overview” that the investigation aspires to is evident right from the first pages, an investigation whose declared goal is that of understanding the recent development of the anarchist movement in the Italian territory and, in the case in point, what some are referring to as the “New Anarchy”.

Statement by Alfredo Cospito – Operation Scripta Manent Trial (Italy)

Friday, September 25th, 2020

IT | Dichiarazione di Alfredo Cospito letta in aula il 9 settembre 2020 per l’appello del processo Scripta Manent

ES | Declaración del compañero Alfredo Cospito

Statement by Alfredo Cospito read in the courtroom on September 9, 2020 for the appeal of the Scripta Manent trial

I would have liked to be silent and let only my lawyer speak (who is more than capable), but seeing that my ideas have been torn to shreds and that words that I have never said have also been put in my mouth, I am forced to intervene directly in the first person.
For us anarchists the end does not justify the means, we firmly believe in the ethics of the means we use, for us it is the means that justify the end, not the other way around.

That is why I must reiterate that I have never made an apology for massacres or mass murder (as stated by – the prosecutor – Sparagna in a previous hearing). The prosecutor is confused, deliberately confusing “terrorism” with “massacre.”

Two ugly words (without a doubt): one belongs to me, “terrorism”, the other is totally foreign to me, “massacre.”

(I open a brief parenthesis on “terrorism”)

Sparagna, in order to create the monster (“the bloodthirsty anarchist,” myself, so we can understand each other), has fished in the context of many of my writings, extrapolating phrases at random. Phrases that are the result of a diatribe (from one of the many debates) that our movement is going through, “the legitimacy of the use or not of the term ‘terrorism’ in an anarchist sphere.” For those who are not anarchists, it is difficult to understand the passion with which we anarchists collide on certain issues.

È in uscita il numero 5 del giornale anarchico Vetriolo – Speciale edizione murale (Italia)

Thursday, September 24th, 2020

Il numero 5 del giornale anarchico “Vetriolo” uscirà in un’inedita edizione murale, online e cartaceo. Una scelta, la nostra, che non rappresenta un mutamento editoriale definitivo, rispetto alle solite lunghe analisi critiche, di attualità e teoriche. Con ogni probabilità, “Vetriolo” tornerà nel consueto formato. La scelta di una edizione murale nasce nei mesi di prigionia di massa disposta dallo Stato con il pretesto dell’emergenza Coronavirus. Abbiamo sentito in questi mesi l’esigenza di una comunicazione in grado di rompere il distanziamento che le autorità vorrebbero interporre tra ciascuno di noi. Abbiamo sentito il desiderio di vedere appesi nei muri nelle nostre città le nostre e le vostre «grida» contro la repressione, tanto più in un momento a nostro avviso importante per l’anarchismo tutto, rappresentato dal processo d’appello dell’operazione «Scripta Manent», nonché dalle innumerevoli inchieste che le procure d’Italia continuano a indirizzare contro il movimento anarchico. Un’edizione murale vuole anche essere uno strumento in mano a quei refrattari che volessero sfuggire a futuri scenari autoritari, come l’antico gesto di appendere un manifesto. Divulghiamo, come anticipazione, il nostro articolo sul processo «Scripta Manent». Un contributo in vista del prossimo fine settimana di mobilitazioni.

A breve gli altri scritti e il manifesto murale. Per richieste di copie e contatti: vetriolo[at]autistici.org.

* * *

Un contributo per il processo d’appello dell’operazione «Scripta Manent».

In alto la mente e i cuori!

Quanti esseri hanno attraversato la vita senza mai svegliarsi!
E quanti altri si sono accorti che stavano vivendo solo per il monotono tic-tac degli orologi!

International Solidarity Call from Italy : ‘Who Aspires to Freedom Cannot Be ‘Measured’

Monday, September 14th, 2020

«From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

As recipients of these kind of minor measures, together we want to relaunch our solidarity with the more than 200 comrades involved in the various trials in Italy that are starting this September and that shall continue throughout the autumn.
In particular, the appeal trial of the Scripta Manent Operation will resume at the beginning of September: this trial involves 5 comrades who have been in prison for 4 years (two of them for 8 years) and which has resulted in 20+ years of sentence in the first grade. (more…)

Italy: “Scripta Manent” operation – Update on the bank account in support of imprisoned anarchists

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

IT/EN/ES

(November 1st, 2019)

Note: Unlike what was previously published, the account in support of the anarchist imprisoned for the “Scripta Manent” operation has changed further. Here are the coordinates of the account. We recall that five comrades (Nicola, Alfredo, Anna, Marco and Alessandro), in the sentence that concluded the trial of first instance, were convicted to sentences of between 20 and 5 years in prison, while 18 comrades were acquitted.

We learn that for technical reasons the postepay card opened as benefit account for Scripta Manent has been closed. A bank account has been opened.

Accountholder: Omar Nioi — IBAN code: IT56M0567617295IB0000592586 — Bank: Banco di Sardegna.

We make yet another appeal to contribute given the scarcity of funds, and the commitment to make four monthly money orders for each comrade.

In addition, there are new major legal costs to appeal (we have a 45-day deadline) following the publish of the reasons for the first instance sentence.

About the sentences in “Scripta Manent” trial and update on comrade Marco Bisesti (Italy)

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019

About the sentence in “Scripta Manent” trial:

On April 24, the Turin Assise Court issued the first instance sentence for the “Scripta Manent” trial (which followed the repressive operation for which five comrades had been arrested on September 6, 2016, and two others had received notification of pre-trial detention while they were already in prison for the attack against Roberto Adinolfi of May 7, 2012).

Alfredo was sentenced to 20 years, held responsible for the possession and transport of explosives in relation to the bomb in Parco Ducale near the Parma RIS (“scientific investigation department” of Carabinieri) of 24 October 2005 (acquitted of the crime of attack because “crime impossible” because the switch of the bomb was off), of the explosive envelope sent to the then mayor of Bologna Cofferati in 2 November 2005 (convicted of the bombing plus “possession and transportation of explosives”), of attacks with multiple explosive devices at the Carabinieri school of Fossano in June 2, 2006, and in the Crocetta district in Turin in 7 March 2007 (crime of “massacre aggravated by the fact that the goal would have been the police” and acquitted of the aggravating circumstance of political motivation), of sending explosive parcels to the then mayor of Turin (Chiamparino), to the editor of the newspaper “Torino Cronaca” (Giuseppe Fossati) and to COEMA Edilità (company involved in the restructuring of the CIE, “identification and expulsion center” for migrants) in July 2006. He is also indicated as promoter of the FAI (Federazione Anarchica Informale), recognized as a “subversive association with terrorism purposes”. The aggravating circumstance of transnationality has fallen. (more…)

Italy : Text by Anarchist comrade Gioacchino Somma: Miserable wretches!

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

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.

Subversive anarchy past and present

Sunday, April 21st, 2019

“Revolution is aimed at new arrangements; insurrection leads us no longer to let ourselves be arranged, but to arrange ourselves, and set no glittering hopes on ‘institutions’.”
Max Stirner

“Don’t follow me… I’m not leading you…

Don’t walk ahead of me… I’ll not follow you…

Carve your own path… Become yourself…”
Conspiracy of Cells of Fire,
Imprisoned Members Cell

“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…)

For a Subversive May 2019 In Solidarity with the Imprisoned Comrades in Italy

Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Against All Authority and Repression!

In Turin and Trento, 14 people are accused of forming a subversive association, inciting crime, and possessing, manufacturing and transporting explosives to a public place. Furthermore, the operation “Scripta Manent”, where the public prosecutor’s office demands a total of 204 years in prison for the attacks of the Informal Anarchist Federation and the operation “Panico”, where 3 comrades are accused of having attacked a fascist library with an explosive device, is still running.

Those who have decided to oppose any domination in the social conflict must live with the constant uncertainty of sooner or later being held accountable for their own actions by the opponents of freedom and self-determination. The idea and the longing for a society liberated from exploitation and oppression cab then be nipped in the bud.

This is especially the case for the anarchist movement in Italy. This is being tackled by the state. The affected prisoners are to be buried alive in their cells with draconian sentences. Their accomplices and the solidarity environment unequivocally profess their permanent enmity against the regime with regard to their kidnapping. (more…)

June 11th: The international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners

Monday, April 1st, 2019

June 11th: The international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners. In the 15 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.

Because social struggles phase in and out, this day is a way to make sure that our imprisoned comrades are not forgotten. Our lack of memory is partially a result of the techno-alienation of the larger culture we’re fighting against. But it’s also a product of the dynamics of the anarchist space. People become burnt out and the cycle of forgetting continues.

June 11th is a way of combating that amnesia, of trying to sustain a long-term memory in the anarchist space. Not only does this generate support for anarchists locked in the state’s prisons, it forces us to look back at what came before. Considering what previous generations did can both inspire us with ideas we’ve forgotten, and help us understand how our current practices came to be. (more…)

Free and dangerous by Elisa and Gabriel – EN/SP/IT

Wednesday, March 20th, 2019

Ardire, Scripta Manent, Operation Buyo … Do they mean anything to you? These are only a few of the police judicial “operations” that our “clan” has lived on its own skin for being and remaining anarchists to the extreme consequence.We are a nomadic clan that goes from country to country in search of accomplices who practice anarchism without asking for approval or consensus, who act without worrying about the “politically correct” discourse (so much in vogue in our times) that haunts our little shops today. We are also not interested in “aesthetics”, but “ethics”, the practical, the real… (more…)
