“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.

For True Animal Liberation
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.

For a dangerous June – call for a month of mobilization in solidarity with italian anarchist prisoners

(Received 9/5/17)

For a Dangerous June

A text that sums up the ideas expressed during the meetings ‘With our heads held high’

State repression is the most important part of the system of dominion and one of its most disgraceful expressions; it doesn’t surprise us that those who are struck most are historically those who don’t let themselves be recuperated by the system of power, i.e. anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities.
The latter respond to the physical, psychological, moral, social and economic repression unleashed by all the components of democratic power and to the brutal indiscriminate violence of its armed hands and the judiciary. This they do with direct action aimed at those responsible for repression, with the creative and liberating destruction of the places of dominion and the sabotage of its infrastructures, so as to put an end, or at least hamper, the causes of exploitation and oppression by human beings on other human beings, the earth and animals.
In the view of total liberation, to passively watch the reproduction of dominion means to be accomplices, so there are those who continue to hold their heads high and rebel.
As a consequence power puts all its strategies into action, and the trials and proceedings against comrades for actions, episodes of conflictuality and writings still continue. Next month there will be the cassation trial concerning so-called operation Shadow, where a number of comrades are accused, among other things, of instigation to commit a crime following the publication of the paper KNO3. [1]
These judicial proceedings are an expression of the war that the authorities are waging on the bond between thought and action, which is the foundation of anarchism’s dangerousness. Beyond individual and specific struggles, this police operation aims at striking the cardinal concepts of antiauthoritarian ideas and methods such as direct action, refusal of delegating and solidarity.

Starting from these reflexions, during the meetings that developed after the arrests of operation Scripta Manent, rather than dwell on the strategies of repression, we felt it necessary to not reduce solidarity to the technical support of those who are in prison, but to widen the spectrum of our analysis.
In this respect, we discussed how solidarity is a fundamental element of our anarchist acting and relations of complicity aimed at the destruction of dominion. This form of solidarity goes beyond repression’s attacks, and is capable of not letting itself be suffocated by the specificity of the trajectories of struggle when we recognize ourselves in a common tension of attack. In particular, active solidarity is an essential instrument to respond to state violence and not take its blows passively but maintain a stance of attack, so as not to develop attitudes of victimization, which is what repression wants. Thinking in terms of offensive, of permanent and internationalist conflictuality beyond each one’s path, the risk of isolation can be reduced and one of the enemy’s most important goals can be made ineffective.
To express solidarity with specific contexts and projects doesn’t mean to have to conform to the discourses and practices of those who have been struck, nor does it mean to necessarily follow in the wake of a given struggle or practice: if we recognize ourselves in a common horizon we can act in solidarity according to our own individual tension.
The creation of solidarity relations on a local and international level is a strategic objective which we should give ourselves in order to face the strengthening of repression’s means and will against anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities
We think it necessary to address our proposals, projectuality and objectives towards the destruction of the system, which organizes social relations of dominion by flattening dissent through recuperation, and wherever this is not possible, by eliminating it through repression.
In this respect, we recognize the importance of multiform actions and practices within anarchism. Precisely because the more differences that exist in a context, the stronger the possibility of not getting stuck on pre-arranged dogmatic positions, provided that any specific struggle and attack is part of the wider view of tension towards subversion.
To recognize the value of this diversity also means to lay the foundations for opposing all centralizing and dominating tendencies within anarchism.
This is only possible through an attitude of constant self-criticism and critique between the different approaches, an attitude that goes towards qualitatively significant growth of both analysis of what surrounds us and the various possible ways to organize the destruction of what oppresses us.
By refusing to classify or make it possible for others to classify our different tensions into identity categories, we think that any attack on authority interacts with social mechanisms and relations and at the same time acts against society itself.
From a strategic point of view the existence of multiform practices is useful to nourish the complexity of the forms of organization and attack, and enhances the discussion on means and ends within the different anarchist projectualities of action. To understand how to give value to this diversity without diluting its contents in the view of a common project of total destruction of the system of dominion, is an absolute necessity.
It is important to consider different proposals and projectualities not as being antithetical and static but as being instruments, resources and possibilities at anarchists’ disposal, provided that they have certain characteristics that we believe are fundamental, such as permanent conflictuality, attack, independence from institutional hierarchically organized political structures, and informality as an instrument of organization.
By permanent conflicutality we mean a tension towards the irretrievability of our practices and discourses, the refusal to submit our action to opportunistic evaluations. This doesn’t exclude the possibility of developing a strategy referring to modalities and objectives, but this cannot be a justification for wait-and-see attitudes or the watering down of our own contents for the sake of a quantitative widening.
From this point of view we reiterate the refusal of any collaboration with power or that lends itself to recuperation. By the latter we intend power’s strategy of absorbing experiences and behaviour that is potentially dangerous to itself and of directing them towards its goals.
In democracies the mechanism of recuperation is complementary to the harshest face of repression and has the goal of perpetuating the system of exploitation and oppression: the attempt at inclusion and integration of some forms of dissent is meant to increase participation in the political game, thus creating divisions in order to more easily attack those who don’t want to be in the spectacle of society.
Anarchist action for the destruction of society and dominion responds both to the tension that refuses authority, and therefore doesn’t negotiate with the latter but wants to overthrow it with violence, and a wider strategy that starts off from the awareness that we will never live free by creating islands inside mass society.
It is therefore out beyond question that the struggle, in order not to be reformist, has to contemplate direct attack as a practice.
Following operation Scripta Manent Alfredo, Nicola, Danilo, Valentina, Anna, Marco and Sandrone are currently being held in high security units, subjected to restrictions and censorship of communication with the outside.
Other anarchists find themselves in prison in Italy and in the rest of the world, others here and elsewhere are undergoing various restrictive measures, such as house arrest and compulsory residence orders.
We call for mobilization in the month of June in solidarity with anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities struck by repression, as an occasion for coordination between initiatives and practices.

Rome, 30th April 2017

Anarchists

[1] Operation Shadow is a procedure based on article 270bis, which Perugia prosecutors started in 2008. The crime of association was dropped in the first grade trial, and in the 2015’s appeal trial it resulted in a sentence of 3 years against two comrades, a third comrade being investigated for article 302 with the aggravating circumstance of terrorism following articles published in KNO3, and sentences against other comrades for attempted sabotage on a railway line and car theft.

Germany: ‘In Spite Of Their Separation’ – call for action & solidarity from Rigaer94

We are writing to you from the threatened houseproject Rigaer 94 in one of Berlins once notorious squatting neighbourhoods. Our contexts might be worlds apart or really close but the reality we lived last year bears the prints of the same systematically oppressive system. In solidarity with all threatened projects, individuals and emancipatory struggles , we would like to better connect our structures and work on a closer link based on support, in our struggles.

Let’s keep walking this path together, but first a short summary of the recent past and our situation.

Last year saw us, the neighbourhood and people around, on the receiving end of much police repression, starting with the declaration by the state that our street and neighbourhood was a danger zone (Gefahrengebiet), giving the police extra search and detain powers and a green light for constant street harassment of anyone fitting their vision of a ‘leftist’, not white or somehow not normative person (this evolved into almost anyone being controlled, no matter how they presented).

This saw a massive rise in police riot vans cruising the streets, meaning constant conflicts for the neighbourhood, and in our efforts to fight for a autonomous and cop free area.

Rigaer 94 was at the centre of these conflicts, as the state and its cops declared it the crux of militant struggle.

This tactic can be seen in the wider context of reactionary imposed controls and intimidation, such as states of emergency and curfews, employed as constant stress factors (and data mining) to those against the aggressive progression of gentrification and public control.

In the beginning of the year, a traffic cop was confronted on the street while trying to give out parking tickets, seven hours later, 500 or more cops were used to raid our house.

Some days later we were raided again, this time after a bag of rubbish was thrown from a window, as cops were going through the nearby house dumpsters (this was a ‘life threatening attack’).
In response to these attacks, we made a call for 1 million euros of damage to the state and its structures to meet any attack on left radical spaces. This was consistently met.
The state was set on trying to destroy our structures and continued to put on pressure, but we never let them get on top of us.
The last attempt by them to crush our spirit was in the summer. A massive police operation was organised to evict the bottom story
(„Kadterschmiede“ bar andWorkshop) of our project. This plan was concocted by the police chief and the interior minister, who then approached the owner for the final ok.
The house was surrounded 24/7 by cops, who fenced off the front entrance and occupied the attic, stairways and yards. They protected private contractors who started a process of clearing and gutting the bottom story and attic. They were then helped by private security to control the coming and going of people from our house. The narrative given to the media was that the bottom story was going to be renovated and rented as housing for refugees. This was of course proven to be a lie and a divisive tactic by the state, who was trying to manipulate the public opinion and crush left struggle with some of its own pitfalls.
This occupation lasted three weeks.
(This is a more detailed text from the time)

In the summer we saw the occupation of our home and project come to an end from the combination of inspirational street actions and a court process. 

The court hearing concluded that the police action was ‘illegal’ and we had some sort of squatters rights to the contested areas of the house. Whether or not this action was ‘legal’ or ‘illegal’ in the eyes of the courts was and is of no concern to us, but in that moment it meant the state had to eat its own laws and go home.
Of course it would not let go so easily, and there has now been an appeal by the house owner to obtain an eviction order. In their legal way.
This court process will happens today,Thursday Febuary 2nd, and we do not expect to ‘win’.
Once the owner has this eviction paper, the earliest they could evict with due notice is two weeks after the court decision.If their first attempt fails they can theoretically try again at anytime in the future with no prior warning.

The solidarity in response to the past attacks on Rigaer 94 was incredibly powerful.

To read everyday of the actions that had happened in the night before, filled us with the strength and fire that we needed to continue this fight. The forms of resistance within the „Day X“concept were as diverse as the people showing it. The streets were full of action, but not only for us, as the struggle against gentrification is international and these and other actions have inspired and been inspired by movements from all over.

This is our strength against the repressive state and its structures – decentralized actions and autonomous organising that the state cannot even come close to keeping watered down and sated.

This is the pressure we can exert on the apparatus of capital and state.

Selforganized spaces such as Kadterschmiede in Rigaer 94 have to be defended!

We want to keep fighting not just for our housing project but for all those threatened by state violence and oppression- all those fighting for living spaces, all those sitting in prisons, all those fighting for their own autonomous futures, all those who are fighting just to live.

All evictions are Day X.

Day X will only bring us together again and strengthen and extend our networks of rebellion.

Day X means Chaos

Teilt unsere Wut!

Every heart is a revolutionary cell.
See you on the streets.

Financial Campaign to aid political prisoners in greece

(Received 30/1/17)

The state through repressive mechanisms (cops, jail guards) and judicial power (prosecutors, judges) aimed at physical and psychological extermination of political prisoners.
Prisoners and comrades however, are in a daily struggle between “special” conditions of detention, vindictive transfers, visiting denials, intimidation and persecution of relatives and friendly contacts and relatives, isolations, deprivation of rights like exit permit from prison, intent proceedings and indictments for statements of regret, self-censorship and capitulation. The ideas however are not imprisoned and solidarity is not penalized by any terror law . We build bridges to continue our common struggle by whatever means available. We support the imprisoned comrades both politically and morally through the promotion of their speech and the practical questioning of state power. For a long period some detainees and prisoners do not receive absolutely no material help and they still fight agianst the state oppression .
For these reasons, we constitute an initiative of financial support for the prisoners comrades.

Anarchist call against the G 20 summit in Hamburg

On the 7th and 8th of July 2017, when the most successful war criminals of the present, the most unscrupulous sweaters of human and nature, the self-titled leaders of this planet, meet in Hamburg, they will not be confronted and thus be revaluated with some demands for better governance or social enslavement.

 

They will feel the rage of the street, when they are rushing with their convoys through deserted districts and talk about the nightly attacks of the last few weeks.

This call, like so many others at similar meetings, does not want to lose itself in an analysis of the importance of the G-20 summit or the policy of their participants. The injustice of the world has been declared a thousand times, anyone who now feels no urge to act, does not need another text.

We want to speak of those who are already involved in the struggle against capitalism and its exerting states with their conforming societies – so, of US.

Since Seattle in 1999, summit protests were a catalysator of radical resistance; individuals and groups came together, swapped ideas, were standing together behind the barricades and carried the flame of resistance back to their regions. Even the shots of Gothenburg and Genoa, or the numerous infiltrated snitches could not stop the development of a Europe-wide chaotic network of autonomous / anarchist / antiauthoritarian tendencies.

Then the criticism of event hopping came up, as if someone had pleaded for it to operate as a riot tourist in any city. The protests against the G – 20 in Cannes and Nice 2011 were prepared in this champagne flush of some movement managers. Everything should become different, better, more political. At that time no conclusion or analysis was spreaded afterwards – the resistance had simply failed, only the usual alibi NGOs played their program.

So now it’s Hamburg and the responsible persons in the murderous headquarters of the secret services, police authorities and military commandos are tearing their hair. They fear that We are coming. But we do not have a leadership that can be eliminated, our resistance does not depend on the cadre behavior of some individuals. Perhaps nothing will happen if you, who is reading this text right now, will not get active. Do not expect others to prepare something for you, so that you just have to jump up.

For sure there will be a big demonstration of the left idiots, who want to play their democratic ritual, as a certain Mr. Marx or Lenin applied to them 150 years ago. And maybe we will be there, too, or at the edge or behind the lines of the cops. There is still plenty of time to think about and prepare this.

However, we are calling for a campaign in the run-up – against any form of power. We want to destroy, by July 2017 (and if only symbolically …) the rule of patriarchy over women, the rule of the states over their borders and urban centres, the rule of labor over our time, the rule of money over our social behavior, the domination of the goods about our lives, the rule of the cops over the fear of repression in our minds.

In Hamburg and in every village, an infinite number of targets are suitable for destruction, so we should start now with it. So that in July 2017 the alienation between the world of the G – 20 and the rest has become so great, that we no longer need summits to come together. The militant campaign against the G8 in Heiligendamm 2007 could serve as a model, because it also gave, apart from pointless preliminary proceedings, a new generation of activists through self-determined clandestine actions and the fleeing cops from the hail of stones in Rostock, a feeling of their own strength and the possibilities of horizontal organization.

In addition we also call for a theoretical deepening of our practice, in which the presence or absence of anarchy should be tested for revolts, as recently in France, spectacles such as in Frankfurt in March 2015, rituals such as on May 1, or in the everyday neighborhood policy and in the fight against nazis.

Because everywhere where we are not present we cannot complain about the dominance of reformists. And where there are only empty phrases with an A available, it makes the superficial chattering of a “consensus of actions” heard with following distancing. Such a discourse would have to go beyond the hitherto (welcome) brief G – 20 references in the responsibility claims.

Our resistance against the G-20 summit does not want to be „victorious“ in the sense of preventing this event. It just could be the beginning of something that could also start on any other day: The self-empowerment of the individual over the existing and the (self) organization in collective structures. But just a call to that one would hardly pay attention. Therefore,

Attack G-20 summit!

Throw Hamburg into chaos!

Destroy the European fortress!

Italy: Update on comrades arrested in operation “Scripta Manent” (27/10/2016)

(Received 1/11/2016)

So, to recap, the situation of imprisoned comrades for the operation “Scripta Manent” is as follows…
Alfredo and Anna stopped their hunger strike, carried out while deathly silence prevailed outside. They ended the hunger strike following the revocation of prohibition on meeting between the arrested comrades in the same prisons. Therefore, Alfredo could meet Nicola again, and Anna was able to meet Valentina.
Instead, the prohibition on meeting is still applied in prison of Alessandria, where Alessandro and Marco are detained, and in prison of Terni where Danilo and Daniele are being held, despite the latter should not be in the High Security section AS2 for the charges he is being investigated for.
The comrades receive mail almost regularly (some letters and some envelopes with hard copy of updates from Internet are blocked).
I would remind to write to comrades in order to break the isolation that the prison itself creates. I would remind as well to put in envelope everything the comrades need to write you back (envelope, paper and stamp), to save their money which they are unfortunately forced to spend on weekly shopping inside the prison.

Break the isolation!
Solidarity and complicity with Alfredo, Nicola, Anna, Danilo, Valentina, Marco, Sandrone and Daniele!

Italy: It Comes As No Surprise (Operation “Scripta Manent”)

wolves

As I had already written in a statement a few days ago about the operation “Scripta Manent” [“written words remain“], 32 comrades across Italy were awakened by the dogs in uniforms at dawn on September 6.

The result of this new operation, ordered by Turin Prosecutor’s Office through its inquisitor Roberto M. Sparagna, is 7 arrested and 15 under investigation. The eighth comrade, editor of Croce Nera Anarchica [Anarchist Black Cross], Daniele was arrested following the search when they found the batteries and a handbook for electrician.

Apart from Alfredo and Nicola, already in Ferrara’s prison for the wounding of Roberto Adinolfi, the other arrested comrades are Alessandro, Marco, Danilo, Valentina and Anna.

The articles 270bis [association for purposes of terrorism], 280 bis [attacks for terrorist or subversive purposes] and 285 [threatening to commit a terrorist crime] are the sum of the alleged offences which started as far back as 2003 and are related to a series of attacks signed by “FAI-Federazione Anarchica Informale”, through the cells ““Narodnaja Volja”, “Cooperativa Artigiana Fuoco e Affini (occasionalmente spettacolare)” [Fire and Similar Craftwork Cooperative, occasionally spectacular], “FAI/RAT (Rivolta Anonima e Tremenda)” [Anonymous and Terrible Revolt], and the cell “Olga”. The comrades Alfredo and Nicola have assumed the responsibility for their participation in this cell and for the wounding of Adinolfi.

So, another investigation of Informal Anarchist Organization, another attempt to fishing in troubled waters just to ensure the salary which is going to fatten another Savonarola and his family in the period between the investigation and the trial.

Am I surprised by just another operation?

Not at all!

If I swim in the ocean voluntarily, I know very well that I will meet the sharks sooner or later. But, these sharks can be sure they can’t scare me in the crossing…

I WILL NOT RETREAT!

Prosecutions, searches, investigations, prisons and trials don’t touch me at all. On the contrary, the more I feel you on my back the more I feel the rage…

They will never make me take a step back, and they will never make me change my mind that, from the moment I came into this world against my will, I will do my best to live better in it…

They will never make me change my idea that the direct action is the only weapon to destroy this miserable and opulent existent.

Therefore, I am not a “poor comrade” who has suffered harassment from cops and a judge, because since I realized that I madly love my ideas, I took everything into consideration, with no exceptions.

A small example can be this temporarily reopening of the RadioAzione website which I shut down more than a year ago, and now it will try to update the comrades exclusively on this operation, publishing communiques, solidarity acts and updates on arrested comrades.

It will not be publishing anything else, and the reasons are the same which led me to shut down the web site in August 2015.

I hope that the non-Italian comrades won’t hold it against me, I have many doubts even today about things that I don’t know well and I didn’t knew well in the past.

It is not a coincidence that I will update only on operation “Scripta Manent”.

In this operation are involved the very few comrades, brothers and sisters, the ones I always felt very close to in these last twenty years, and with some of them even more.

Alessandro, Marco, Danilo, Valentina, Anna, Alfredo, Nicola, and Daniele too, will be  on my mind every day until the day I will see them out of the concentration camp of the State.

They will walk with me, in my thoughts, outside the prison walls, bars and special sections.

They will walk with me, in my thoughts, along the dark path which leads to anarchy.

In the end, the national press are reaffirming the same role of inquisitors and jackals, following very carefully a series of anarchist websites to transcript on their toilet paper excerpts of our reflections, accompanying them with their Lombroso-reminiscence analyses.

Especially the center-left press, like good little ships and the voice of the master, in order to hide the fact that the money for the earthquake, and for the previous one, will never be allocated (it will be used for restructuring the bank of the minister Boschi’s father), it splashes the anarchists and their solidarity communiques across the front page, hoping for comments from the idiotic and conservative zombie mass who lives in the suburbs of the net.

But, don’t worry, because in our thoughts are also you, journo hacks and jackals.

As with every empire that should be destroyed, it begins with destroying the army to reach the kings and the queens.

For anarchy, for direct action.

Me, myself and I
