From Avalanche- #11, July 2017 (anarchist correspondence)

To be in conflict with power doesn’t mean to be gene­ rally hostile towards power. The hostility towards power begins with scepticism – the scepticism questioning its existence and necessity. A rational matter, on the one hand, which persuades us to develop rational analy­ses about the functioning and transformations of pow­ er. Although purely abstract, whereas the putting into practice of our hostilities towards power also means to move on to speaking about oneself and about conside­ring one’s own life as the field of projection for the own ideas. An irrational matter, on the other hand, a mat­ ter of heart, a matter of acting, an individual moment of rupture. A rupture, which overcomes the passive attitu­de of scepticism and creates by means of the own ideas and comrades projects that are attempting to push the hostility towards power in the direction of a permanent revolt and a generalised rupture with authority.

From Avalanche

Anarchists always appropriated means to spread anti-authoritarian ideas and struggles to feed the dialogue and subversive action. It is in this sense that this publication is also intended as a tool, more precisely that of providing a space to nourish the international debate between anarchists. That is why these particular pages create space for struggles that spring from anarchist activities; autonomous, direct and self-organized struggles; struggles that go towards the destruction of power in all its forms; struggles happening today, yesterday or that are announcing itself.
