CHILE: STATEMENT FROM MÓNICA CABALLERO AND FRANCISCO SOLAR.

Facing what we see as direct interpellations towards us, the need arises to write this text to make clear the issues. As we have written on several occasions both individual and collectively, we understand anarchy not as an embodiment or place of arrival, but as a tension, a permanent confrontation in the first personm putting at the center the search for individual freedom. For us, this constant struggle has been real, which is why we find ourselves today behind bars.

BARCELONA – MADRID, SPAIN: ACTIONS AGAINST ENERGY COMPANIES AS PART OF THE WEEK OF AGITATION AGAINST THE DEVASTATION AND THE RISE OF ELECTRICITY .

Energy companies represent the infrastructure and monopoly of capital in its maximum extension, both in its operation and exploitation (human, animal and land), as a device of social control, in addition to pollution at all levels. On the other hand, the situation of dispossession and devastation of ecosystems and communities that have made these industries in ABYA YALA (Latin America) are catastrophic, so we consider it urgent to attack them, make them visible, and destroy them. This type of consortiums

CHILE: STATEMENT BY FRANCISCO SOLAR IN MEMORY OF LUISA TOLEDO SEPÚLVEDA.

I had the opportunity to speak with her only a few times, however I had the good fortune and the enriching possibility to listen to her on countless occasions. I don’t think I was indifferent on any of those occasions. The power of her words and gestures, the intensity she brought to each of her statements and harangues motivated me enormously and still do. I remember them -in this encierro- and my hair still stands on end. How lucky we

ABOUT THE REACTIONARY DRIFT OF SOME “COMRADES”

We write this text to warn against the umpteenth worrying reactionary drift of some well-known characters who still find accessibility within the anarchist scene, in Italy (less and less) and abroad, despite the fact that in recent years they have accumulated a series of alliances and embarrassing speeches, tending to the most extreme populism and increasingly close to the right-wing world. We are talking about the organizers of the Three Days against Technoscience, also involved in the website Resistance to

THE PRECURSORS OF ANARCHISM – EMILE ARMAND

ANTIQUITY Certainly, it is not easy to know exactly, and what documents could tell us? – when the governmental or state authority began.
