The measure responds to a more specific clarification of the accusation in order to
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
On July 20, 2001, 23-year-old anarchist Carlo Giuliani was shot dead by police during protests against the G8 summit. To his credit, he succeeded in attacking the police van with a fire extinguisher.

Further remarkable actions against George Bush’s election and inauguration, at the World Bank/IMF
There is a fundamental lie in the capitalist society. A promise that never comes true. The promise of freedom – you just have to work hard. Every time we stumble upon the crisis of capitalism we are reminded about that. More than one year of Covid-19 lies behind us. Some say, that Covid-19 is a health crisis. But it is not! Covid-19 is another crisis caused by capitalism. Provoked by the urge of more wealth and growth. Which contaminate fertile

-The dilemmas of the contemporary «anarchist movement» versus the instituting character of the «social movements.»1. «Vulgarly it is held that the «great mass» could not remain without religion; the communists extend that claim.» Max Stirner, My Enjoyment of Myself, in The Only One and His Property. «To see what we have in front of our noses requires a constant struggle.» George Orwell, In front of your nose.

ANTIQUITY Certainly, it is not easy to know exactly, and what documents could tell us? – when the governmental or state authority began. No few explanations have been given as to the foundation and establishment of authority.

Four years after the murder of Santiago Maldonado we continue to vindicate our comrade. Because anarchic memory is action, we call to remember Lechu, emphasizing the ideals and perspectives of our comrade.
