Letter from Anarchist Comrade Beppe

From Anarchists Worldwide

Pavia Prison, Italy: Letter from Anarchist Comrade Beppe

I am writing to report a serious situation (yet another!) that I found myself facing between the afternoon of July 3rd and midnight of July 4th! As you will be aware, I have been locked up since about a year in a cell alone in the «protected» section [a section where are held ex-cops, infamous, pedophiles, rapists, etc.] of Pavia’s jail!, I have always refused such placement by putting in place various forms of struggle (hunger strike, air strike, etc.).

TOTW: How Would Anarchists Organise An Inter-National Sports Event?

TOTW: How Would Anarchists Organise An Inter-National Sports Event?

I've never come across anyone identifying as an anarchist who is opposed to fun. Arguably, fun seems to be a required aspect of any anarchist-activity, for it not to simply be reproducing workerist narratives that perpetuate the mechanisms of boredom. I find boredom to be absent in spaces of anarchy.

Learning From Portland

 Learning From Portland

by Black Flag Catalyst

My city: Portland, Oregon is currently under siege from an occupying force. Make no mistake in assuming the state will hesitate to occupy other cities with their militant, violent force, for less than reasonable reason(s). It’s spread to Columbus, Ohio, and Miami. We learned from Standing Rock, the state uses protests as a testing ground for what they can do at other protests.

Lucio Urtubia: An anarchist life

Lucio Urtubia: An anarchist life

From Enough is Enough

Social rebel, counterfeiter, bandit, modern Robin Hood – the list of titles with which our anarchist comrade Lucio Urtubia was honoured is long. His life, which sounds like an adventure novel, is a mirror of the revolutionary movements in Europe in the second half of the 20th century. Lucio Urtuba passed away today. Rest In Power Lucio!

Stop blaming everything bad on anarchists

From Washington Post

By Kim Kelly, June 4, 2020

As protests continue to sweep the nation, a narrative has emerged blaming alleged “anarchists” for stirring the pot. They are, the story goes, materializing out of nowhere to sow chaos, put marginalized people at risk and generally make more peaceful protesters look bad.

The Operation in Portland Is Only a Dress Rehearsal

Portland, Oregon police officers confront protesters on the evening of July 4.

The Authoritarian Operation in Portland Is Only a Dress Rehearsal
A major American city is being softly Pinochet’ed in broad daylight.
