A COMMUNIQUE FROM DAVIDE DELOGU
It’s a pity not to be able to read your communiques. Unfortunately, blocked by the wall of censorship I am unable to write a contribution to the struggle so in these few minutes I am letting out my joyful words of complicity and tenacity between us prisoners in struggle. In fact I believe that cohesion is an important factor of growth in the revolutionary component against the attack being carried out by the prison system in its logic of burying, controlling and harassing. A logic being put forward with totalitarian abusive methods through an infamous policy of aggression with several authoritarian forces acting as one single body so as to strike harder and attempt to destroy us. Against the annihilation of the human and of my principles through the application of isolation within isolation of 41bis in which I find myself, my response is «war».

TOTW: Anarchist-Capitalists

2020 was the year when anarchist started to mean riots and fires again. This was good news, because for a while there it started to feel like it meant bitcoin and free markets. Some anarchists really love money, apparently. Some even seem to prefer black Friday to black November. I'm talking, of course, about anarchist-capitalists...

“Destruam et ædificabo”: The anarchist proposal

“Destruam et ædificabo”: The anarchist proposal

From autonmies dot org via acracia.org (24/10/2020) …

The Latin expression is a biblical quotation that Pierre-Joseph Proudhon put on the cover of his fundamental work, The System of Economic Contradictions, or The Philosophy of Poverty (1846), and it reflects very well the dual approach that anarchism has given to the struggle against domination and oppression. On the one hand, the clear understanding that key aspects of the dominant system cannot be recovered, but rather have to be radically confronted. It is the radicalism that is also shown in successive confrontational tactics at different times in anarchism’s history, in which destruam has been used in a literal sense, with a propaganda of the deed that smelled more of gunpowder and death than of the construction of a new world. It is the one that is still present in slogans that we can hear in a demonstration, such as “A fired worker, a hung employer”. In this case, it has more of an innocuous bravado than a serious threat, but in other cases it is clear that violent opposition is needed at a certain moment, a position that the Black Bloc consistently picks up, or that Peter Gelderloos supports in his essay against of non-violence as a priority strategy. Domination and oppression will not fall without a serious “push” to bring them down.

Aubenas, France – Incendiary attack on the Office National des Forêts [National Forestry Office] in Aubenas in the Ardèche, in the night of 5 to 6 October

I have learned that I don’t just love forests for their wealth of life, death and what’s in between, for what they are, that my repulsion for their fate isn’t just empathy but that my own possibilities are also restricted, controlled, rigged, destroyed. Then I remembered the acts of sabotage against the destruction of forests. Machinery vandalized, sawmills burned down, humans attacked. I remembered that I could act and not just go deaf and blind to protect myself. So I took part in an incendiary attack on the National Forestry Office, in Aubenas, in the night between 5th and 6th October.

Permanent Subsistence Zones on Immediatism Podcast

"I am not aiming for relationships that always exclude any degree of sedentariness any more than I am aiming for an obligatory sedentariness.... The village isn't a stage on a downhill momentum toward urban life. The net and song and mask aren't first steps on a path toward rank and privilege, environmental degradation or ever increasing degrees of mediated lives. They are merely the outcome of sensual wisdom, of embeddedness, of organic life ways. In this sense my destination is primarily toward small villages and seasonal camps." ~Seaweed in Permanent Subsistence Zones
