(A-Radio) Fundraising tour of ABC Belarus 2022, the war in Ukraine and lessons from the Belarus uprising
Anarchist Black Cross Belarus recently finished an infotour in Germany, France and Switzerland, partly organized by the Federation of German-speaking Anarchists (FdA-IFA). We were able to talk to a comrade after their presentation in Berlin on 6 October 2022. The first half is about the dire political situation in Belarus at the moment, two years after the uprising as well as in the context of the war in Ukraine. In the second half we summarized together lessons from the presentation for antiauthoritarian and anarchist movements in future uprisings.

Buenos Aires: Anarchist Bookfair and Gathering – November 20 and 21
The anarchist boofair will be held November 20 and 21 in Morón; repeating what we did last year at the Plaza China Cuellar in CABA.
We understand that there may be confusion regarding the fact that there will be two anarchist bookfairs in Buenos Aires this year, and so we will use this moment to explain and clarify the panorama to those who are reading from other lattitudes.
We are not interested in opening the door of virtual gossip, but rather in making it clear that there are two bookfairs because of different ways of organizing, that we have things to say and things to suggest.

SOLIDARIDAD INTERNACIONALISTA Y COMPLICIDAD REVOLUCIONARIA CON EL COMPAÑERO ALFREDO CÓSPITO EN HUELGA DE HAMBRE
El compañero lleva en huelga de hambre en una cárcel italiana desde el 20 de octubre de 2022, contra el régimen penitenciario del 41 bis, al que fue trasladado el 5 de mayo y que contempla un aislamiento extremo como castigo por su clara conciencia y acción revolucionaria. Los anarquistas en prisión en Francia, Ivan Alocco y Juan Sorroche, en Italia, se sumaron también a la huelga de hambre. Se suceden las acciones en solidaridad en todo el mundo.
Por Alfredo y todas y todos lxs anarquistas y revolucionarixs represaliadxs en el mundo!
Abajo el 41bis!.

Anyone who seeks to understand what conditions exist that give rise to the potential for any revolutionary hypothesis today must, sooner or later, formulate the entire set of problems with clarity, in order to be able to face them. Tracing the thread of radical and revolutionary critique back to the recent past, but also looking at the generalized uprisings and revolts of the last few years here and internationally, could enable us to take a step in this direction. Not with the intention of finding ready-made answers and especially not “solutions”, but to modestly start asking questions, without waiting for the next insurrection.

FIRST OF NOVEMBER TERNI – SPOLETO: GATHERINGS IN SOLIDARITY WITH ALFREDO, JUAN AND THE PRISONERS IN REVOLT
ALFREDO OUT OF 41 BIS
END 41 BIS
The anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito has been on hunger strike since 20th October in the prison of Sassari against the regime of 41 bis that he has been subjected to since last May, after ten years in Maximum Security. The unprecedented decision to keep an anarchist in 41 bis is just the tip of the iceberg of the authoritarian backlash in act in Italy, a backlash inaugurated with the prison massacre in March 2020, followed by investigations against trade union struggles, with logistics workers accused of ‘extortion’ against the boss because they demanded wage increases, in a particularly fierce preventive counterrevolution against the anarchist movement as indicated by the seizures of books and newspapers, the endless special surveillance, the sentencing of Juan Sorroche to 28 years’ prison and the Court of Cassation of the scripta manent trial.
TUESDAY 1ST NOVEMBER
10am – Prison of Terni
2pm – Prison of Spoleto
• We will bring news of Alfredo’s struggle against the 41 bis sections!
