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!
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.
