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».

Anarchist Prisoner Natascia Begins Hunger Strike

Anarchist Prisoner Natascia Begins Hunger Strike in Piacenza Prison, Italy

One year, two months and 24 days.

This is the time that has passed since my arrival here, in the Piacenza jail; time filled with emptiness, time wasted trying to tame all of your senses, experimenting with a self-discipline that transforms, like an alchemy, the waste of a life into a formative experience. I have never looked for conflict, even if everyday life here is a constant series of occasions for conflict; when I set my reasons against this system of neutralizing the individual, I tried to do it with “civility,” with forced respect for roles, trying to appropriate them, at least as weapons, these illogical dynamics of which the guards make their banners: rules, rights, duties, protocols. And I’m certainly not saying it to brag about it, on the contrary; nevertheless, in jail, human experience is so distant from any form of good sense, common sense or just plain sense, that we must play, even if we know very well that the dice are rigged.

Start of the "Bialystok" trial + hunger strike

via contra info, English translation by Anarchist News

The start of the Operation Bialystok trial: The request of the prosecutor for an immediate trial has been accepted for Fra, Nico, Flavia, Roby, Claudio y Daniele. The first hearing in the Assise court will be in Rome on December 14, at 9:30 am. We've come to learn from her lawyer, that Fra joined the prison hunger strike that began on 19/10 in solidarity with the anarchists Beppe and Davide. We're also told that the prison had blocked all the letters in which she wanted to communicate this decision along with her reflections.

The sad dilemma of "A" anarchist magazine

via El Libertario, English translation by Anarchist News

The news, in itself, is simple, though unpleasant: after forty-nine years, "A" Rivista Anarchica ceases its publications. The first Italian publication "in alphabetical order" will no longer reach its subscribers and its interlocutors, leaving a hole where every month it was possible to read a fairly exhaustive review of themes and ideas from the varied libertarian world. The story is known and tinged with legend: Fabrizio De André's favorite monthly forum (who supported it financially), the voice that denounced the "state massacre" in Piazza Fontana, promoter of the campaign for the liberation of Pietro Valpreda, always with the intimate conviction that "there are no good powers" and that, therefore, anarchy is not an extreme position, but the only truly acceptable one.

Anarchist comrade Nico’s letter from prison (28th September 2020)

Anarchist comrade Nico’s letter from prison (28th September 2020)

From Act for Freedom Now!, Italy

These short notes from a brief reading of the papers at my disposal concerning so-called Operation Bialystok were written to enlighten, albeit superficially given my subjective point of view, some of the salient contents of this new anti-anarchist investigation and the consequent repressive developments. The cyclical movements of the social conflict have always been followed by repressive waves, to the point that we often end up stating there is “nothing new under the sun”. However, analysing the changes in paradigm and the instruments being used along with those occurring in society as a whole means we can put them in context, identify their causes and specific goals and develop appropriate strategies of resistance and counter-attack. In fact repression changes and understanding it in its transformations should be of interest to those who are determined “always to do better” in the anarchist struggle against all power.

Vetriolo Issue 5 is out

via malacoda, translated by Act for freedom now!

Italy – Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is out – Special mural edition September 2020

Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is coming out in a new mural, online and paper edition. Our decision doesn’t mean a permanent editorial change in respect to the usual long critical, topical and theoretical analyses. Vetriolo will probably go back to its usual format. The choice of a mural edition was made during the months of mass imprisonment imposed by the State with the pretext of the Coronavirus emergency. In recent months we have felt the need for a form of communication that could break the distancing that the authorities want to put between us all.

Bombs for Confindustria Brescia & Prison Guards

via Round Robin

Italy: Two parcel bombs for the President of Confindustria Brescia and the Prison Guard’s Union

We sent two parcel bombs to the president of Confindustria Brescia, Giuseppe Pasini and SAPPE of Modena.
We hit the unions of the bosses and their minions.
We hit the corporate and prison slaughterers in the first days of the proclamation of the state of emergency. In front of the images of the bodies taken away by military means we understood: Your death, my death. Capitalism is a rotting corpse: Let’s bury it.

Not a defense

via Act for Freedom Now!

Lecce, Italy : NOT A DEFENSE…

On 11th September a maxi-trial will begin in Lecce against almost a hundred demonstrators accused of having opposed the realization of the TAP gas pipeline in various ways. A sort of spectacular event with big numbers set up mainly to impress and leave a sign of repression that can also be a warning to others in some way. Besides the place, a bunker courtroom, chosen for the trial, officially for reasons linked to anti-Covid regulations, unofficially to create an atmosphere suitable for the criminalization of the TAP opposition, the obstinate and law-dependent clerks of Order and the Economy do not have much in their hands.

WHO ASPIRES TO FREEDOM CANNOT BE MEASURED

via Il Rovescio

From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.
