Turin [Italy]: Inquiry “Scripta Manent” – All committed for trial! (17/07/2017)

(Received 18/7/17)
Yesterday, 17 July 2017, at the courthouse of Turin was held the last day of preliminary hearing concerning the inquiry “Scripta Manent”. The decision of judge for preliminary investigation came as no surprise: all suspected were committed for trial.
The trial, for all comrades accused of being part of Informal Anarchist Federation [F.A.I.] — International Revolutionary Front [F.R.I.], will start on November 16th. For all, except for Giuseppe Lo Turco who asked for the abbreviated trial procedure.
An inquiry, the “Scripta Manent”, which inevitably recalls the “Marini” (1995) one. Only one cauldron of different inquiries, as “Ardire” (Perugia), “Shadow” (Perugia), “Moto” (L’Aquila), “Evoluzione” (Naples).
Updates will follow…

Italy: Update on Op. “Scripta Manent”, and few comments (03/07/2017)

(Received 4/7/17)

The preliminary hearing for the “Scripta Manent” investigation will be held on 11 and 17/18/19/20 of July. I would like to point out that from 3. June five other comrades of Croce Nera Anarchica, myself, the undersigned of RadioAzione, and the comrade who runs RadioAzione [Croatia] (at the hearing of June 26th it has been decided that she will be tried separately, but still with the same charges), have been added to the comrades already arrested and under investigation.

Looking into the documents relating to the investigation, we have learned that the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Naples had opened in 2012 an investigation against me, against an old comrade accused also in the Marini inquiry, and other comrades from Lazio [Italian region] on the subject of Informal Anarchist Federation.

For five years we have been subjected to a total control, which has resulted in including other comrades in the investigation, including the Croatian comrade of RadioAzione. Key-logger installed on computer, wiretapping, tailing even for 600 kilometers… Kind of “if I forgot where I put something, I can ask Agent Elena (the name they gave to the key-logger)”.

After five years of fictive control, on 10. January the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Naples demanded an arrest for me, the comrade of RadioAzione[Croatia] and two other Greek comrades (one of which is already imprisoned for C.C.F.).

From that moment on, everything has been taken over by the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Turin and the prosecutor Sparagna [in charge of Scripta Manent], since the Office of Naples did not have jurisdiction over the crimes we are charged for.

What are we accused of?

Of providing counter-information through web-sites and magazines, translation of claims of responsibility from across the world, of support, sustain, solidarity and complicity with the anarchist comrades Alfredo [Cospito] and Nicola [Gai], raising money for imprisoned comrades. Of having created an Italian-Croatian-Greek cell of F.A.I.

In some parts of the documents, the prosecutor on duty tries to foment the rifts which exist between some of us and the rest of the anarchist movement, and furthermore he invents out of thin air, through wiretapping transcribed in his own way, a disagreement between me and the comrades of CNA [Croce Nera Anarchica], while there has been a full cooperation since the beginning, and I believe that it is the only anarchist journal in Italy worthy of reading, so much so that I am accused of organizing the presentation of this project in Naples. I am saying this just to stop immediately some sharp tongues.

If these are the charges, then:
I claim to have published on the web-site RadioAzione everything in affinity with me. I claim to have given and continue to give Solidarity and Complicity to Alfredo, Nicola and all other comrades-brothers and sisters arrested in September.
I claim to have raised money for the arrested comrades.
I claim to have organized the presentation of Croce Nera Anarchica in Naples, hoping to organize others in the future.
I claim to be anarchist, individualist and for the insurrection!

Athens: Banner for “Scripta Manent” case.

As a minimal sign of complicity and solidarity, we displayed a banner at the Polytechnic on Patision the night of June 19th.

Comrades in Italy, and specifically the 7 comrades of Croce Nera Anarchica, Radioazione and Anarhija.info, with the new operation which started at 2/6/17, are accused of articles 270bis (subversive association with purposes of terrorism) in conjunction with the anarchist comrades under investigation in the first part of the OP. Scripta Manent for the same things, and 414 of penal code (criminal solicitation, always with purposes of terrorism). This is the continuation of the first operation “Scripta Manent” where bastard Roberto Maria Sparagna organized, in order to suppress the comrades who spread the words and keep the flame of rebellion alive.

Be strong!

We stand on their side and give them the boost, with all means , to continue.

For a dangerous June!

Madrid, Spain: Attack against a Bankia branch in solidarity with the compañera sentenced for bank robbery in Germany

On the night of June 7th, an explosive-incendiary device was placed in a branch of Bankia located in the Mirasierra colony of Madrid, disturbing the tranquillity of the upper-middle class people that reside there. This urban area is populated with chalets and mansions that are covered with CCTV and private security patrols, far from the misery that cements the standard of living of its inhabitants.

This action was carried out after we heard about the sentencing of our compañera for expropriations in Germany, we send her all the warmth of our fire.

We also frame our action in the context of the call-out against the G20 financial summit in Hamburg.

Tonight our anger and disgust also erupted at the impotence of daily life, with an attempt to escape the passivity and give back some of the violence that we live under. We are fed up with the comfort of programmed life and political activity, which is also programmed; We want to embrace with this act all those who have fallen in action and fight to the death against all that keeps us in passivity.

Let the solidarity between anarchists be more than just written words! For Anarchy!

“The myth of veganism”

“Veganism is a philosophy of life that excludes all forms of exploitation and cruelty to the animal kingdom and includes a reverence for life. In practice it is applied following a pure vegetarian diet and encourages the use of alternatives for all matters derived partially or totally from animals”
Donald Watson, founding member of the Vegan Society.

This little text will not question the irrationality of the ideas and values ​​(2) of vegan philosophy. This time we will demonstrate that veganism is a myth in the Technoindustrial Society and how it is a hindrance to understand and act for the true Animal Liberation (3).

Veganism is a myth. Nothing, nor anyone, is vegan within the modern Technoindustrial Society. However, there are many naive people who believe in this myth, believe that their food, clothing, footwear, hygiene and beauty products, technological devices, books, music, bikes … and all the industrial garbage that they compulsively consume is “vegan” . But in reality this is not so. All that industrial garbage called “vegan”, can not contain materials of non-human animals, okay, but do contain or, rather, do collaborate with anima and humanl exploitation.

Thus, if we return to our earlier definition of veganism, “… a philosophy of life that excludes all forms of exploitation and cruelty to the animal kingdom …”, it is evident that it is not consistent with philosophy, because it collaborates with the systematic exploitation of Animal kingdom, so veganism is a myth. The so-called “vegans” are very naive in not analyzing, questioning and understanding the functioning of the complex reality, and the large and complex social system in which we live. Any food or product that comes from the modern Tecnoindustrial Society, is not free to collaborate with the systematic exploitation and domestication of the animal and environmental kingdom.

The seeds, fruits and vegetables produced and distributed by the modern Technoindustrial Society are not vegan, since modern industrial agriculture needs:

A) Deforest large tracts of fertile land to take advantage of the fertility of that soil and turn it into a field of cultivation. Deforest means; Destroy the ecosystem that occupied that soil. The vegetation of that ecosystem must be felled or burned. Then, it is necessary to assassinate, capture, domesticate, displace or even extinguish the different species of animals of that ecosystem. This obliterates all the very complex relationships and interactions that the ecosystem itself (ecosystem and inhabitants) maintained, and the relationship that ecosystem maintained with other ecosystems, and with the planet in general.

B) Since the field is ready, peasants are required to work the land, their tools are needed (machines or non-human working animals), seeds (native or transgenic) are needed to be planted, Fertilizers (natural or industrial), irrigation water is needed, etc. Once the harvest is obtained, it is sold to the intermediaries, they will transport it, store it and distribute it until Finally that seed, fruit or vegetable, arrives at the commercial establishment where the “vegans” will buy them.

In order to complete this process, it is necessary to use the great and complex division of labor of the modern Technological Society, and in all these large and complex relationships there is systematic exploitation and domestication of the animal and environmental kingdom. Some “vegans” will be able to argue in their defense that the seeds, fruits and vegetables that they consume, are not of industrial origin, but of an organic orchard, okay, but if that orchard uses modern technology for the production, storage and distribution of its foods , And if in order to acquire them there is money circulation, it inevitably continues to collaborate with the dynamics of systematic animal and ecological exploitation and domestication. Maybe vegan seeds, fruits and vegetables are the ones that would harvest oneself with techniques like; Permaculture or organic gardening, and using simple tools or technology. Since only then, it would cease to depend on the Technoindustrial System, and its mechanisms of power, control, domestication and systematic exploitation would be abandoned, but most of the self-described “vegans” do not sow their own food.

The self-called “vegans” depend on the modern Techno-Industrial Society to carry out their diet. In Wild Nature no animal determines how it will be fed, this is largely determined by the natural environment in which it develops. The omnivorous diet of human animals has not been a choice, but a necessity for survival, a requirement to survive in different environments, to eat what there is, what can be eaten. The human organism is not a specialist, it is opportunistic, and its omnivorous diet proves it. The human animal domesticated in its civilized cage is able to decide how to feed itself (vegetarian, vegan, frugivorous or carnivorous diet), but for this to be possible, it needs to collaborate and maintain its status as a domesticated human animal in the service of the progress of the Technological System .

No vegetarian, vegan or frugivore, would survive as the really free human animal that should be, in the environment where it should be developed (Wild Nature), with that type of diet.

Most self-called “vegans”, perhaps, do not consider themselves as what they really are: human animals. And it is also very true that those who fight for “Animal Liberation”, do not fight for their own Wild Individual Freedom, do not question at all their own condition of domesticated human animals. If the seeds, fruits and vegetables offered by the modern Tecnoindustrial Society are not vegans, much less their other harmful products of industrial origin: clothing, footwear, hygiene and beauty products, books, music, bikes … A similar analysis could be applied To products deceptively called “green” or “ecological”. No product from the modern Technoindustrial Society is vegan, not even ecological.

The so-called “vegans” can continue to deceive, and deceiving themselves, they can continue to depend on the System of domestication and systematic exploitation. They may continue to denounce the conditions of slavery of non-human animals, without seeing or denouncing their own status as domesticated human animals in the service of Technological Progress. They see the cages of the other animals, but they are so blind to see the modern civilized cage in which we live. They can continue to fight futilely for “Animal Liberation”, without first fighting for their own Individual Wild Freedom. It is quite funny how a domesticated animal intends to free other animals. They will be able to continue defending and promoting the ideas and values ​​of the Technological System (leftism), seeking only to improve it with its useless reforms, and not to destroy it definitively. They may continue to compulsively consume their products, or, supposedly vegan, industrial harmful foods.

All this will only fool and reassure your consciousness in some way, but in reality it will do nothing to try to attack the domestication and systematic exploitation of the animal kingdom. Nor much less do anything against the domestication, devastation and systematic artificialization of Wild Nature. Faced with the irrational fraud resulting from vegan theory and practice, we have decided to renounce unnecessary consumption, to reuse the materials already produced and to stop depending on the Technological System, developing our own self-sufficient way of life, far from the values ​​of the Civilized cage and as close to our Individual Freedom and Wilderness.

Fire to the cages, fire to Civilization

Notes:

(1) These ideas and values ​​are: sentimentalist animalism, anti-speciesism, biocentrism, hedonism, religion, leftism, the supposed naturalness of vegetarianism in human animals, social ecology, misanthropy, etc.

(2) When we speak of veganism in this text, we refer to all its “different” slopes, from “bourgeois veganism” to the so-called “anarchoveganism.” And from the movement for the “Animal Liberation” reformist, to the movement for “Animal Liberation” abolitionist or radical (ALF – Animal Liberation Front- ). ALF activists may argue that they are not reformists because they do actions, but the truth is that they are identical to those who make up the movement for the reformist “Animal Liberation” that they criticize so much. They are reformists for defending and promoting the same values ​​of the Technological System (leftism), they do not seek to destroy the Technological System, they only try to improve it, and the worst thing is that they are not aware of it.

(3) By Animal Liberation we mean: Human animals and not, who develop their life in Freedom, in their Natural and Wild habitat.

Italy: Update on the 2nd part of Op. “Scripta Manent” (06/06/2017)

(Received 7/6/17)

FIRE… TO MAKE

On 2 June 2017, the DIGOS [politica police], by order of the Turin Prosecutor’s Office puppet, Roberto M. Sparagna, has launched the notifications against me and against six other anarchist comrades of mine, concerning a new inquiry.

Shortly, it’s about the closing of investigations of a further inquiry, parallel to the one named “Scripta Manent”, focusing its attentions on anarchist web-sites RadioAzione, Anarhija.info and Croce Nera Anarchica.

Regarding Croce Nera Anarchica, the paper journal is also targeted, its printing and its distribution, some of its particular texts, and who organized its presentations in Italy.

The charges are for everyone: 270bis (subversive association with purposes of terrorism) in conjunction with the anarchist comrades under investigation in the first part of the OP. Scripta Manent for the same things, and 414 of penal code (criminal solicitation, always with purposes of terrorism), clandestine press, translations of texts, preparation, incitement, defending of criminal acts, conception and spreading through the web-sites and journals of ideological “insurrectionist-armed struggle” propaganda, money rising to support the imprisoned comrades. Furthermore, two of us are charged under the article 280 (attack with purposes of terrorism) for the attack against the courthouse of Civitavecchia, on 12 January 2016 signed by “Pyrotechnical committee for an extraordinary year F.A.I.-F.R.I.”.

In addition, on June 5th, during the preliminary hearing for OP. “Scripta Manent”, the miserable Sparagna has requested that the two lines of inquiry be merged, producing the documents the same morning. Therefore, the preliminary hearing has been postponed for June 27th.

The intentions are quite clear: to do everything to isolate furthermore imprisoned anarchist comrades and those who express certain positions in the own journals. But the gravedigger on-duty who wants to bury us in his graves made of iron and concrete, can be sure that there will never be a millimetre back.

Italy: About the investigations against RadioAzione, Anarhija.info and Croce Nera Anarchica

(Received 5/6/17)

Yesterday, June 2nd, the DIGOS [political police] knocked on the doors of my house and of six other comrades’ to notify us of the closure of preliminary inquiries for a further investigation by the Public prosecutor of Turin and the prosecutor Roberto Sparagna [in charge of Scripta Manent], parallel to the investigation called “Scripta manent”, focusing on the anarchist web-sites of counter-information RadioAzione, Anarhija.info and Croce Nera Anarchica.

Concerning Croce Nera Anarchica, the paper journal is also targeted, as well as its distribution and who organized the presentation of the same journal in Italy.
The articles in question are: 270bis (subversive association with the purposes of terrorism) and 414 (criminal solicitation). A further article, 280 (attack with the purposes of terrorism), is referring to two of the comrades.
Translation of texts, predisposition, solicitation, defending of criminal acts, conception and dissemination through the web-sites and journals of ideological “insurrectionist-armed struggle” propaganda, money raising to support the imprisoned comrades, and the attack against a substation of Enel [manufacturer and distributor of electricity and gas] in Civitavecchia, January 12th, 2016, signed by “Pyrotechnical committee for an extraordinary year F.A.I.-F.R.I.”.
This is the human misery produced by the filthy magistrate of Public prosecutor’s office in Turin, Roberto Sparagna.

The intentions are quiet clear: to do everything to isolate furthermore the anarchist comrades imprisoned for “Scripta Manent”.
But the gravedigger on-duty can put his soul at rest, because there will never be a step back!
The counter-information on web-sites and in journals will continue to be updated, as we will continue to raise money to support the comrades imprisoned in your shitty camps, and above all not a single one of those comrades who you took away from us, depriving us of their everyday physical presence, will remain isolated.

Finally, till my last breath on this shitty planet, I will hope there will be
10, 100, 1000 direct actions!

Santiago, Chile: Incendiary Attack Against a Transantiago Bus in Memory Of Mauricio Morales

During the night of May 26, 2017, about 20 encapuchados (‘hooded ones’) left USACH (University of Santiago, Chile) to erect barricades on the corner of Matucana and Romero, where they managed to stop a Transantiago route 513 bus belonging to the Metbus company.

After the passengers and the driver exited the bus it was completely ignited and the encapuchados withdrew from the area.

The police arrived quickly to try and put out the fire and to provide their expertise, they soon found leaflets from the protest action that had been left on the street.

The next day, the mayor of the metropolitan region, Claudio Orrego condemned those who were responsible.

The action was part of the many events, attacks and propaganda carried out in memory of the anarchist compañero Mauricio Morales who died on May 22, 2009 carrying an explosive device near the Prison Guard School.

**Transcript of the leaflet found at the scene**

How many years have passed since you physically abandoned this current disgusting modern world? Does it really matter? We are not interested. Time is only time and the future is uncertain, the attack is here and now…there is a present that burns and explodes! A present of war!

A new year since the death of Mauricio Morales!

Down with the cages of civilized society!

Ignacio, Kevin and Joaquin to the street!

Freedom for all political prisoners!

Thessaloniki, Greece: “Not in memory, in continuation” Banners for Punky Mauri & Italian anarchists

(Received 25/5/17)

During the day of 22nd May we hung two banners for anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales Duarte ‘Punky Mauri’ & those anarchists arrested during Operation ‘Scripta Manent’ in Italy. One was hung in the Rotunda area and the other under the arch in Kamara, both in the centre of the city.

Eight years ago on this day Mauri took the attack to the state by attempting to place a homemade bomb at the school of Gendarmeria in Santiago, Chile. Instead of gnashing in the face of authority, the explosive went off prematurely.

Operation ‘Scripta Manent’ is another repressive operation amongst many that have already occurred against comrades who dare to oppose the Italian state. Under the context of trying to find those who took part in Informal Anarchist Federation attacks since 2005, but also an attempt to destroy the insurrectional conflict in Italy and cut off any solidarity network to those already in prison, such as Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai.

Just because our comrades fall or are imprisoned does not mean they are not with us, neither will we be paralysed with passivity and ‘philanthropic solidarity’, the conflict against all authority continues.

– Some Individualist Rebels

The banners read:

“Arm yourselves and be violent, beautifully violent”

Not in memory, in continuation, for our combatant comrade Punky Mauri.

DO NOT FORGET THE OFFENSIVE!

And:

INSURRECTION IS NOT A UTOPIAN FINALE,
IT’S THE CONTINUOUS ATTACK OF THE INDIVIDUAL AGAINST ALL AUTHORITY.

STRENGTH TO ANARCHISTS WHO WERE ARRESTED IN ITALY IN OPERATION SCRIPTA MANENT.
