Prometeo Operation: updates on Natascia from Rebibbia prison (Italy, July 2021)

Natascia is well and her mood is high, especially since she knows that Anna [anarchist comrade sentenced to 16 years and 6 months in the Scripta Manent trial against the Federazione Anarchica Informale, “Informal Anarchist Federation”] has also arrived and received her greetings, even though Natascia is in a solitary confinement cell far away from the one she is in, which makes it impossible for her to hear directly from Anna. It seems that her transfer to Rebibbia prison in Rome is a permanent relocation, which she does not mind at all: in fact, she said she does not want to ask for other transfers and wants to stay there.

20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani

20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani

It's been 20 years since the murder of Carlo Giuliani in Genoa. Those days that costed first of all a life, but also a lot of blood for all the others who joined the demonstrations, filled the streets, or the Diaz school. We don't want to just remember the sacrifice of our health or the fear, the traumas, and our rage and disillusionment. Or the year long trials and a total of 110 years in prison imposed against a movement. More important is still keeping on shouting that a different world is possible: a responsible, ecological, fair one.

Statement by Natascia Savio

from Malacoda

A text by anarchist Natascia Savio on hunger strike (Italy)

Lucidly aware of the punitive (and preventive?) strategy that the DAP [“Department of Penitentiary Administration”] is putting in place towards me, and at the same time full of anger and disgust, I decided that – if I have no means to concretely interpose myself to their vindictive logics – I have at least the possibility to not let them do it with my collaboration. On hearing the news of my return to S. Maria Capua Vetere, at 6 p.m. on June 16, 2021, I immediately announced the start of an indefinite hunger strike.

Anarchist comrade Natascia Savio is on hunger strike since June 16 (Italy)

From a video call this morning [June 19] with a comrade, Natascia made it known that on June 16, 2021, on her return to Vigevano prison after the preliminary hearing held in Turin for the ‘Scintilla’ trial in which she is a defendant, her temperature was taken and she was immediately put in an isolation cell. When she realised that she was there to be transferred back to S. Maria Capua Vetere prison, she officially declared the start of her hunger strike, throwing the food out of the cell when it was delivered.

An international May Day greeting for 2021

greeting comrades, now get back to the factory floor! we have stuff to build

From Anarchist Federation

AF note: The following is from the IFA Secretariat who are currently the FAI in Italy (this role rotates amongst the Federations making up the membership of IFA). We previously published a nice read about the anarchist origins of Mayday including the Haymarket Affair in Chicago mentioned below. Also, our 25th anniversary issue of Organise!  magazine 77 from a decade ago has articles we have previously published about the Paris Commune which was especially influential on the development of anarchist communism. Earlier in the year we also celebrated and remembered the bravery of the Kronstadt rebellion of 1921.

Italian poet-anarchist Sante Notarnicola thought he was Robin Hood

By Alan Howe, The Australian
April 3, 2021

Sante Notarnicola. Anarchist, poet. Born Taranto, Italy, December 15, 1938; died Bologna, Italy, March 22, aged 82.

Sante Notarnicola is dead. Maybe not such a bad thing. Notarnicola couldn’t decide if he was an anarchist or a communist, and seems to have spent his life suspended between both while imagining himself to be a poet.
