Rimini, Italy – The Alpini harass, the Alpini rape, the Alpini make war!

The Alpini National Association literally invaded the city of Rimini from the 4th to the 8th of May.

A true military operation, by occupying troops: four “camps” set up in strategic areas of the city, a parade in grand patriotic style, war propaganda, a lot of national flags.

These viscid and oppressive molesters with plumed hats are no Sunday fun-lovers, they are above all military: as such their reason for being is to make war. Continue reading Rimini, Italy – The Alpini harass, the Alpini rape, the Alpini make war!

Italy – For international revolutionary solidarity!

“… I think that only from the clashing of these two (anarchist terrorism and creative anarchy) can the new be born, because life is contrast: rational and irrational, hate and love, anything but deadly static “equilibrium”. Harmony is the child of “disequilibrium”, of chaos…”

Well, what had been looming for some time has finally come to pass: on May 5th  anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito, already imprisoned in the AS2 unit in Terni, was notified of the 41-Bis regime. We know what this regime involves, a regime demanded by the judiciary then approved by the ministry of justice with minister Marta Cartabia’s signature: annihilation of individuality, extension of isolation, no books, no information or updates from the outside world… in other words, torture.

We cannot fail to be aware of this as the latest attempt at revenge legitimized by the State apparatus against the coherence and integrity of a revolutionary anarchist comrade who has always vindicated his own path, head held high, and has continued to contribute to the anarchist debate through publications, books and writings. This 20 days from the sentence of the cassation concerning the Scripta Manent trial, orchestrated by infimous prosecutor Roberto Sparagna, where dozens of years in jail were handed out on charges of massacre, subversive association with purposes of terrorism and instigation for a number of comrades, including Alfredo.

Immediate release of Giannis Michailidis on hunger strike since 23/05 /22 (Greece)

 ACT FOR FREEDOM NOW!

————————————————————————————-

On 22/02/2022, comrade Giannis MichaiIidis is informed that for the Amfissa Plenary Council he does not meet the “essential” conditions for his release after more than 8 years of imprisonment, as for the council, there is a “risk of committing new offences”.
Comrade G.M. has been targeted for years by the authorities because of his subversive activities. Recently, because of the targeting of him, as well as other prisoners, for the riot that took place in the Malandrino prison in solidarity with the then hunger striker Dino Giantzoglou, he took the option of escaping from prison. In a robbery he carried out while in the illegal situation, he was caught by the cops and taken back to prison.

Nevertheless, under the state’s own laws on merging sentences, the comrade meets all the formal requirements for his release. The Board is vindictively keeping him inside, for vague and indefinite “substantive reasons”, on a completely unsubstantiated rationale of general justification for robbery on the part of G.M.

The comrade is in a special exempt status because of his political beliefs and practices, serving an exhaustive sentence that is being extended arbitrarily. He has been on hunger strike Since Monday 23/05, in order to obtain his release.

“(…) And finally, knowing that it is possible that this strike may be the last part of my journey, I wish to give it precisely that dimension which expresses me as a whole:
The struggle for the freedom of one, is the struggle for the freedom of all…
…until the destruction of the last cage

Giannis Michailidis,
pre-emtively captured in Malandrinos Prison.”

ES/EN : La Cizaña Trashumante an anarchist diffusion project (Mexico)

La Cizaña Trashumante
Proyecto de difusión anarquista
Distribuidora. Ediciones. Información. Radio.

La Cizaña Trashumante es un proyecto de difusión anarquista que nace en Ciudad Juárez, México, el 1 de mayo de 2022 con la intención de difundir y profundizar en el debate teórico y en la práctica anarquista. En este sentido, el material que distribuimos y difundimos tiene la intención de, por un lado, recuperar textos clásicos que, por diversas razones, olvidos u ocultamientos deliberados, no se encuentran al alcance del público en la frontera y, por el otro, incorporar nuevas voces e investigaciones dentro del amplio espacio ácrata.

También difundimos material audiovisual y serigrafía de contenido afín a los ideales de solidaridad, apoyo mutuo, defensa de la vida, antimilitarismo, feminismo no autoritario, entre otros tópicos, que alimentan el horizonte de ese otro mundo que llevamos en nuestros corazones.

¡Punky Mauri Presente! In memory of Anarchist Mauricio Morales, 22 MAY 2009 -22 MAY 2022

Arm yourself and be violent, beautifully violent, until everything explodes.
Because remember that whatever violent action against these promoters of inequality, is entirely justified through centuries of infinite violence that we have been been subjected to by them. .. Arm yourself and combat the terrorism – burn, conspire, sabotage, and be violent, beautifully violent, naturally violent, willingly violent.’
– Mauri

————–

Punky Mauri has been present on the street all this time, because those who remember him are not far from the paths of struggle, a memory does not rise from the path of comfort, but from the very terrain of combat against domination.

Nothing has finished, everything continues!

Solidarity with anarchists facing repression in Munich

In the early morning of Tuesday the 26th of April the German police raided 4 houses of comrades in Munich, as well as the anarchist library ‘Frevel’ & a printing space. All the machines and material present in the printing space were taken away in trucks, while in the houses and the anarchist library mostly anarchist publications, personal documents, computers, phones, printers and digital storage media were confiscated.

Three people are being accused of “forming a criminal organization” (article 129). In the official argumentation of this accusation the cops point at a refusal of the accused to integrate in society, their rejection of the state and its institutions, their belief in violence as a legitimate mean of struggle, and more precisely, their part in the creation and distribution of the anarchist weekly ‘Zündlumpen’. Two of the accused were shortly arrested. The order for DNA sampling was given for all three.
