Interruption of a democratic kermesse in solidarity with Alfredo Cospito (Rome, Italy, September 20, 2022)
On the evening of September 20, in Rome, we interrupted a democratic kermesse that took place at the Troisi cinema. The evening’s special guests were the critical philosopher Noam Chomsky and the committed filmmaker Ken Loach. We stormed in with a banner that read ‘Against every prison. 41 bis = torture. Freedom for Alfredo’, threw leaflets and read the following text.
ALFREDO OUT FROM 41 BIS
FREEDOM FOR EVERYONE
Since May 5, our comrade Alfredo Cospito has been imprisoned under the 41 bis regime.
The 41 bis is a regime of institutionalised torture, created to isolate, silence and annihilate the prisoner, thus trying to bring him to collaboration with justice. We do not want to demand more comfortable cages, nor do we want to be victims. We are against all prisons, we would like to see them burn. We are not surprised or outraged, we know very well that all this happens within a democratic regime. Democracy is based on the annihilation of the internal and external enemy. This is not a novelty linked to the advent of the so-called pandemic, this mechanism is inherent to representative democracy which, because it provides for representatives, necessarily creates an unbridgeable gap with the represented. Quite simply, for the past two years, we think that democratic regimes have dropped their masks: repression for all, permanent states of emergency, compulsory vaccination, green passes, persecution of those who do not play by the rules, rationing, etc. The situation is self-evident.

Arson attack at Barros Arana Boarding School (INBA)
September 9, 2022
On Thursday, September 8, in the vicinity of the Barros Arana Boarding School (INBA), barricades were set up, banners were hung, confrontations were mounted against the presence of Carabineros and two RED (Transantiago) buses were burned in their entirety at the intersection of San Pablo and Patricio Lynch.
The driver of one of the buses declared: “About thirty students must have come out of there. The only thing they said was to get off the bus and they began to throw incendiary projectiles at it”. (…) “They assaulted me as I started [the engine], they made me go into a dark alley between all the kids who were there”.

25/09 TO GENOA AGAINST ANTI-ANARCHIST REPRESSION
Caught in the grip of health emergencies, wars, increasingly fierce internal repression, the energy crisis, economic recession, the systematic erosion of individual freedoms, the dismantling of acquired rights, and a widening social gap, we are asked to perform an act of blind loyalty like that of a dog that, though beaten, does not shy away from its master’s harassment, of resigned submission to the inevitability of these events: the chorus of politicians of all hues, of the bosses, of the regime’s yelpers, is re-proposing to us the fatuous promise of the solution to the problems that beset the daily lives of most, of the common good, to be obtained, as it happens, through ‘tears and blood’ sacrifices to which we should also, ironically, give our consent in the electoral ballet.
It seems to us that this spectacle is a painful repetition. The assent and social cohesion that is being demanded of us is aimed more at feeding the interests of political apparatuses and the business dealings of the economic bosses, these already closely cohesive at several levels, who thrive on the backs bent by the chain of labour and necessity. To us anarchist comrades, libertarians, rebels, refractory to authority, the way forward seems clear: to resolutely oppose this power that is suffocating us and against the State, the men and women who represent it, against the prisons and all places where anyone is imprisoned, against the political and economic institutions that speculate, plundering the planet’s natural resources and degrading our lives.

Words from the confinement of Joaquín García Chanks
August 29, 2022
(Excerpted from Buskando la Kalle)
In the context of the Week of Agitation and Solidarity with anarchist and anti-authoritarian prisoners of all tendencies we share words of anarchist prisoner and comrade Joaquín García from confinement.
In times in which welfarist solidarity invades each and every space of the anti-prison struggle, dragging each space of complicity to an eternal logic of martyrs and spectators, it is urgent to rebel against the comfortable immobility of this conception of solidarity, to take it out of the stagnant limitations of purely material aid and to weave in actions of complicity, trust and spaces in which antagonistic violence finds fertile ground for its praxis.

Kassel,incendiary attack of the car park of the German army
de.indymedia, August 17, 2022
On the night of Thursday to Friday of last week, two vehicles were completely burned in the district of Bad Willhelmshöhe in Kassel (Hessen region). The two cars that were completely destroyed by fire were two civilian vehicles belonging to the German army fleet, parked near the Bundeswehr technical school. The cops say the damage was in the mid-five figures. A small drop in the bucket compared to the huge sums currently being spent on rearmament.
Since all NATO member countries are required to spend at least 2% of their GDP on war preparations, spending on military and armaments products is skyrocketing in Europe. Since then, the German army has been subtly presented to us as an “antiquated troop, reduced to a pitiful size by cost-cutting” and “not fit for combat”. The aim is to convince the public that the huge investments in the military-industrial complex are justified and serve the security of Europe. When at the beginning of this year the war in Ukraine escalated again and the Russian ruling class sent its army to finish annexing the territories in the east of Ukraine that have been disputed for years, the calls for the necessary rearmament of Europe finally found complacent ears.
