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

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.

Belgium: ‘The one spectacle that continues despite viruses and lockdowns’

While the cultural sector is still debating social distancing restrictions with whatever politician appears to be in charge, one venue keeps on hosting its spectacles in spite of everyone. So we are disgusted to announce to you the upcoming theatrical performance taking place on the 8th and 9th of October 2020 in the Palais de Justice in Brussels (that Moloch built on top of the proletarian Marolles and adored by many authoritarians for its oppressive bombast).

Chilean anarchist on trial for death of fascist in Spain

Chilean anarchist Rodrigo Lanza is facing 20 years in prison for the death of a fascist in Zaragoza, Spain. This is not the first time Rodrigo is imprisoned: at 21 years old, he was allegedly framed in 2006 for throwing a stone that left a police officer tetraplegic during a squat raid in Barcelona. The many irregularities in the Barcelona 4-F case were exposed in the documentary Ciutat Morta, along with the police violence suffered by the prisoners, which we covered back in 2014.

Fénix 2 Case Update

via email, from ANTIFÉNIX

On Friday, September 25, 2020, from 8:30 a.m., another hearing will take place at the District Court in Most in the Fénix 2 case.

Recall that four anarchists and one environmentalist are charged with offenses punishable by 3 to 10 years in prison. Support the accused directly in court or by another solidarity action.

Not a defense

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.
