Face to face with the enemy
Domination has acquired a dazzling rhythm of mutation. The veil of technological advance is covering the world as we knew it in shrouds. Ecological disaster is not “coming”, is already there. While industrial progress advances triumphantly, instability on all levels (social, political, economical, ecological) is increasing. A difficult challenge for those who will continue to fight for freedom as a totality, and not as a negotiation on the lengths of our chains. Old models of revolutionary intervention are fading away as the urge for new perspectives presses.
A century ago, anarchists on the banks of the Rio de la Platain South-America declared war on power and came “Face to face with the enemy”. They went to seek out the enemy in their lairs with offensive moves. They bombed banks, police stations, institutions, getting ever more closer to the enemy. With anarchy in their hearts, and a gun in their hands, they went forward, not waiting for the masses or the building of a broad movement. And every bomb they put echoed with the numerous publications they spread. Action and idea went together, hand in hand. Today, how do we come “face to face with the enemy”? Where does he hide, where can we hit him? As domination shifts to new models, anarchists and rebels also broaden their views.

At the beginning of April the carabinieri notified Robert, already on trial for ”operation Prometeo”, a warranty notice for article 280 (attack for purposes of terrorism) with an attached request for urgent assessments to be carried out on 13th April 2021 at the RIS headquarters in Parma on materials collected on 27 and 28th November 2016 in the areas close to the carabinieri barracks of Bologna-Corticella.
Just a couple of days later the same papers were notified to Giuseppe, presently being held in the prison of Bologna, who is also under investigation for the Prometeo inquest. The disputed facts concern the explosion of a device on the night of November 27, 2016 outside the carabinieri barracks.

The Minnesota police murder of Daunte Wright reignited impassioned protests across many US cities Monday night — with a riot in Portland, Oregon, as hundreds attacked cops.
A second night of demonstrations boiled in Brooklyn Park, where the murder occured, while protesters gathered in other cities in a show of unity. Researchers were able to locate and publicly post the address of the pig who murdered Daunte, driving her from her home.
“Burn the precincts to the ground, in every city and every town!” chanted marchers in Portland.

As a minimum indication of solidarity to the people arrested, tortured and jailed from the events of Nea Smyrni (initially, on 7 March midday at the ‘polis park’, the square and the park, but also afterwards, on 9 March with the pogroms in our neighbourhoods after the overwhelming river of people’s rage), we intervened with banners and paint in the areas of Nea Smyrni and Palaio Faliro, of Neos Kosmos and Agios Dimitrios. Throughout and against prohibitions, rifts of collectivization and explosions blossom.

Quale internazionale? published little more than a year after the publication of the third part of an homonymous interview with imprisoned comrade Alfredo Cospito in the anarchist paper Vetriolo, is finally available. This booklet, edited by Alfredo and the other comrades editors of the paper, is the expression of a passionate trajectory of in-depth study and analysis and at the same time a cognitive and historical contribution for anarchism, a volume which we hope can bring about a lively involvement with anarchist ideas, drawing the attention of those who care for the destruction of this world centred on authority.
«Today just to publish a discussion on the practice of internationalist anarchist action, just putting together a chronology of the actions carried out by the Informal Anarchist Federation and some of their claims involves the concrete risk of ending up in prison for years. This pocket book has a great merit: it goes straight to the specifics of the Informal Anarchist Federation without any dissociating or demonizing prefaces. How is it possible that a phenomenon that involved (whatever one thinks of it) a consistent part of anarchism was never analysed in a serious, deep way, even less from a historical point of view? Perhaps it is time to face this piece of anarchy in a balanced way, without rancour. Perhaps to do otherwise would be demented because certainly it is not by mystifying or erasing pieces of history that don’t correspond to our fine printed theories that we will be able to affirm our anarchy in the world» – Alfredo Cospito.

There is no need for further recommendations. The implacable struggle of the revolutionary Dimitris Koufondinas continues on its 64th day and proceeds from the necessity it started off from. A necessity that intensifies and strengthens as the government of Néa Dimokratía persists in and maintains an intransigent position, intending to kill him. The State’s brutality, its intransigence, isn’t only aimed at his death but far more at the extermination and definitive disintegration of the revolutionary perspective and combative dignity embodied in the figure of the revolutionary D. Koufondinas.
For a week we’ve been seeing with anger the State’s endless revenge, which changes between alternate declarations at times oozing false optimism and at others the cold brutal intention of extermination. But surprise is a luxury we can’t afford. It is obvious that you are trying to abdicate your responsibilities, but however you try to shake off any liability for an imminent death, the responsibility will be yours alone, it will have your signature. We are sure that from our struggle, here and now, revenge will pour out, while your power will lie among the ruins of the history you have chosen, and for the first time life will triumph over death.

Autonomous fire prevention! Result: 3 vehicles on fire for the profiteer of prisons Dussmann!
There are companies like Spie, Wisag, Massak, Sodexo … or, as in this case, Dussmann, who, by their collaboration, maintain the authority of the state.
It is wrong to think that companies like Dussmann Service GmbH are neutral. They make the decision to make profits by the humiliation and the exploitation of people. They consciously accept to poison and destroy the organs of the prisoner.
Dussmann is a subcontracting company. It provides “food” for retention centers [prisons for immigrants] and prisons.
