Black International

Statement by the comrades from Free Pampa Cell (FAI/FRI)

via Anarquia.Info, English translation by Anarchist News

Hear the cry of the call to the multiform revolt. We are like wolves that howl at night: we have Siblings of the struggle rotting in their cages... They invite us into the combat, those from Malos Aires who dare to interrupt their dream-killing normality: insurrectionary hug comrades! Here we are, the rural bandits facing the enemy. It’s difficult for us because, logically, our "anonymity" here hangs by a thread.

Interview: Gustavo Rodríguez Pt.1

Contrainfo: dialogue / interview with comrade Gustavo Rodríguez (First part).

With the urge to dialogue about Anarchy in our days, from ContraInfo (C.I.), blog we were self-motivated to conduct an interview with comrade Gustavo Rodríguez (G.R.), motivated by the recent international call for solidarity with the anarchists who continue to fight against punitive society behind prison bars, breaking the imposed normality. Comrade Rodríguez, has made countless contributions to insurrectional and informal anarchism and to the so-called contemporary illegalism, highlighting the sharp analysis of his latest contributions to the ongoing debate on the "new normal" imposed by "Cyber ​​Leviathan."

Who do the passionate communards work for?

"I will then become a worker: such is the idea that stops me, when the mad rages push me towards the battle of Paris - where, however, so many workers continue to die while I write to you! Work now, never again." 1 Rimbaud

Since 1871 - the year in which the "accursed poet" wrote this letter - it was not necessary to be a "seer" to see the obvious: the masses of workers who fought on the barricades in Paris continued to work. That "wildcat strike" in front of the Versailles authority was, in turn, a new job that produced new obligations and condemned them to perpetuate work in saecula saeculorum. Such deep reflection, in the midst of a necromancing trance, probably prompted Rimbaud to question: who were the passionate communards working for? prophesying a system of domination based on direct democracy as the axis of political-social management, which ensured the permanence of authority and continuity of work.

Hands to the Gunpowder!

via Anarchists Worldwide by Gustavo Rodriguez

That is why, when we declare that anarchic solidarity is more than words, we not only refer to our accomplices in their struggles and, to the economic and emotional support of our prisoners, but we also ratify the foundations of our struggle. Of course, there is no more appropriate support for our imprisoned comrades than to coordinate their escape or to blow up the bus that transports their jailers, but we don’t always have the means for these spectacular actions; nevertheless, there are many ways to show our support and to concretize solidarity with imagination. There are an infinite number of actions capable of obstructing the prison complex and these only require a little prior investigation in order to be carried out.

The heuristic capacity of Anarchy

Jack Halberstam, a renown queer theorist, committed to the "anti-social project" and active contrasexual militant, begins his book The Queer Art of Failure[1], with an irreverent and fun excerpt, taken from the 20th episode of the 1st season of SpongeBob, which invites us to reflect...

Retaking our black path

From anarquia.info, translated by Anarchist News

Retaking our black path [1]

—To Alfredo Cospito, partner and co-conspirator.

We are going our own way - individuals without a redemptory and blind faith.
Our disgust with society does not engender in us any immutable conviction.
We fight for the joy of battle, and without any dreams of a better future.
What do we care about tomorrows that are awaited for centuries!
-Zo'd Axa
L'Enderhors, Paris, 1896.
