“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…”

“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…)

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…)

The anarchist comrades detained in the AS2 section (“High Security 2”) of the Roma Rebibbia prison were transferred to the prison of L’Aquila. They are Anna (in prison since 6 September 2016 for the “Scripta manent” operation, of which a trial is currently taking place in Turin and which will soon reach the first instance sentence, for which the prosecutor has already done conviction request), Silvia (arrested on 7 February 2019 in the context of the “Scintilla” operation and the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin) and Agnese (arrested on 19 February 2019 for the “Renata” operation in Trentino). A women’s AS2 section was established in the prison of L’Aquila. Here are the addresses:

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…)

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…)

Two years after the beginning of this trial, which I am facing with my comrades, anarchist brothers and sisters, and after letting the prosecutor speak, with a sick fantasy that does not surprise anyone, today more than ever I reaffirm with even more force the fact that I am an anarchist, an individualist and an insurrectionist.
Having read thousands of pages of court files, written by the different inquisitors of Turin and Naples, has made me even more convinced that it is better to sometimes have problems with justice, rather than for it to agree with you.
I keep my ideas, which you do not like because they aim at the destruction of everything that has to do with your miserable world.
If I could have chosen, I would never have been born, but others chose for me and I was only able to live in this world in my own way. I will never be part of the herd to which you dictate the path of grazing… I am different. I prefer to leave the trails and walk with the wolves. (more…)

On the night of February 18, a bank ATM in the Usera neighborhood was set on fire. This small action is a sign of encouragement for Lisa, recently moved from Germany to Madrid; for the repression of the G20; the comrades arrested in Madrid on 30 October – accused of burning another Bankia ATM – and for the comrades in Italy, recently beaten in new operations against the anarchist environments in Turin and Trento, as well as for the comrades on trial in the Scripta Manet and Panic operations.
Let the Spanish and Italian states know that anarchist solidarity will not stop. And it will be formed by more than words. Sabotage is easy and simple. In the possibilities of its reproduction is its strength.
Also, this small action serves as a contribution to the week of agitation and propaganda against gentrification, spatial capitalism and in defense of squatting.
Freedom for Lisa, freedom for all!
Long Live Anarchy!

[Below in French and Italian / Sotto in francese ed italiano].
Text read in solidarity to anarchists under trial following Scripta Manent operation.
On Monday 11 February in the bunker hall of the Turin prison a large group of comrades expressed their solidarity with the anarchists on trial following the “Scripta manent” operation (6.09.2016). Roberto Sparagna (the public prosecutor in the trial) was unable to take a word to formulate his indictment. After several slogans and the reading of the following text, the Court interrupted the hearing. The courtroom was evicted through the intervention of the riot squads. During the protest, solidarity was expressed to all the anarchists arrested and on trial during this period, following the repressive operations “Scripta Manent”, “Panico” and “Scintilla”, and against the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.
Freedom for all prisoners! Long live anarchy!

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.

At the hearing on 14th November a calendar of future hearings was once again announced after the expert appointed by the court to transcribe phone tapping asked for more time, obtained a 60-day extension and a second expert was also appointed. The prosecutor made it known that the judicial police had forgotten to deliver a CD audio and asked for an extension of the custody measures, but for the moment a calendar was set out complying with the length of custody… which is due to expire at the end of February (taking account of the 30/35 hearings till now, from mid-January the deadline slides to 18th February, plus some more days considering the hearings due in January). During the hearing of 14th, a DNA expert appointed by the court following Capra (DNA expert for the defence)’s report, gave his statement; the expert for the defence had challenged the reliability of the old report in several points.

Paris, France: Diplomatic Vehicle Torched in Memory of Mikhail Zhlobitsky and in Solidarity with Anarchist Comrades Facing Repression
Saturday, November 17th, 2018
On Sunday the 11th of November, today’s greatest slaughterers commemorated the first world war’s butchery (and they prepared for future carnage). We continue to carry the old slogan of the anarchists from that era: against their war, against their peace, for the social revolution.
On the night of Monday, November 12th to Tuesday, November 13th, in this militarized capital and under video surveillance, we torched a car of the diplomatic corps at the intersection of Rue Spontini and Foch Avenue, as well as the big bourgeois Porsche that was parked next to it (yes, it is possible to bring war to the rich and the powerful!).
For the comrade Mikhail Zhlobitsky: we want to remember him this way, not with words, but with flames. Solidarity with Russian anarchists who respond to repression with direct action. Solidarity also to the anarchists who face the judiciary in Greece (CCF), in Italy (Operations Scripta Manent and Panico) and everywhere else. A thought for Krème and S., imprisoned in Limoges.

On the night of October 2nd, with the half-moon as an accomplice who discreetly guided our steps without exposing us too much, we entered the property of the CREA Research Center of Montanaso Lombardo (Lombardi). We devastated the institute’s four big greenhouses, destroying almost all of the experimental plants they contain.
It is not surprising that the media have remained silent about this action, despite the serious damage done to their research: indeed, the CREA research centers are under the direct control of the government, who have every interest in concealing the actions that put spanners in the works of their projects.
CREA specializes in the sequencing and genetic engineering of plants and hyper-technological modernization of agriculture and livestock. Their latest research, funded by the government, is focusing on the development of the so-called GMO 2.0.
We will not passively observe the umpteenth project that manipulates the living by annihilating spontaneity in the name of profit. Before leaving, we left some huge slogans inside the greenhouses: “NO BIOTECH”, “NEITHER OLD NOR NEW GMO” and “HAMBACH RESISTS”.
Solidarity with those who fight in defense of the earth against industrial civilization.
Greetings of complicity to the comrades affected by the Scripta Manent and Panic operations.
Anarchists Against the Misery of the Existent

Berlin, October 15th, 2018
The anarchist movement has sharpened it’s profile. This has meant that the repression against us has intensified in recent years. From Germany, the G20 has triggered an increase in activity by security agencies because they have realized that they are not in control of us and it became so obvious that a response was necessary. The destruction in Hamburg, the lack of compromise and the determination of the hooded ones hit them exactly where it was intended. Uncertainty was triggered there, in a place where people people’s property defines themselves and their complicity in a warring society. The luxury automobile or the patrol car on the verge of becoming a pile of charred plastic – a casualness towards the war against the poor, the outcast and the inept.
Following the publication of the text ‘The Insurgent’s Autism’, in issue 9, June 2018 of the eco-anarchist publication Fenrir, we felt an urge to respond. And for a moment we attack the illusion of security in this society in a very specific place to engage in communication and open a space for discussion.
…We do not know what to think regarding what out comrade Alfredo Cospito is saying when he speaks about a vision of an anarchist praxis that would become more dangerous because it keeps on experimenting. We can only speak for ourselves, that we have become more dangerous and are quite successful because the power misjudges our real potential. The willingness to remain alone, the claiming of total responsibility for our destiny… (more…)
