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.

We express our solidarity with the comrades under investigation not only because we think the struggle against fascists and against all wars is right and legitimate but also because we were together in these struggles – on many occasions. The Police are trying to present these struggles as the work of a restricted group of people who “exploit” others, and this attempt must not pass.

Your sentence doesn’t trouble us
Everything began in defence of the earth, in defence of a centuries-old campaign, in defence of the memories which that land aroused in the hearts of many inhabitants of the area. A struggle against TAP, SNAM, against the companies which through their great works have become owners of land, legalized usurpers.
Everything that has remained of a struggle that didn’t stop for almost two years, where day after day, night after night, we gave our all to prevent or slow down a devastation announced by the coming of TAP, are 77 years of sentences handed out at the end of a trial farce, where it seems that two years of struggle against TAP have transformed themselves into a struggle against the Lecce police, against the digos.
