One fine morning, the faithful lackey, who has hitherto identified completely with his master, leaps on his oppressor and slits his throat. RV

Bologna, Italy - We are all out of place


We are all Fuoriluogo ('out of place' - the anarchist place in Bologna that was raided and closed down during a police operation involvi 60 searches all over Italy, 5 arrests and 7 judicial restrictions. The charge is ‘organized crime’).

Text of the poster calling for demos in Italy

In a world over and over again at war, where mad colonels bombard rebel towns and global sheriffs shoot against everybody; in a nuclearized world with radioactive seas and poisoned lands, where an earthquake is a business for laughing hyenas and where a cancer is yet another customer for pharmaceutical lobbies; in a world obsessed by ‘security’ but in which the destiny of everyone is in the hands of doctor Strangelove and his idiotic ministers, and in which health is in the hands of pharmaceutical multinationals and traders of waste; in a world of luxury hospices for rich elderly and prison call centres for poor youths; in a world of blue years and lead years, of jobs that are not there, and when they are there it is just shit; in a world of lives mortgaged in order to pay a rent and of bored consumers; in a world in which economic crisis is used to inflict the nth ‘emergency’ on you so that you bow your head; in a world of men and women fleeing from war and misery, in a world of refugees camps and mass deportations, of police blocks and electrified borders, of slaves because of hunger and dead in the sea; in this world, the world of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Chernobyl, Fukushima, the world of Auschwitz, Mauthausen, Gaza, Ceuta and Melilla, Porto Palo, Lampedusa, the world of Gradisca, Pontegaleria, via Corelli, Via Mattei, Ventimiglia…
In THIS WORLD we are ALL fuori luogo because in this world life is banned, forced into places and corners of history that we want to reduce to rubble once and for all, so that we can finally breathe and create new forms of life…

Saturday 16 April: everybody in Bologna at 3pm, Piazza XX Settembre, for a demonstration in solidarity with the revolts in the Mediterranean, against war and its accomplices, to continue the struggle of those who have been arrested and to repeat loudly that ‘in this world we are all Fuoriluogo’.

Saturday April 23: everybody in Caorso at 3pm, Piazza della Rocca, for a demonstration against nuclear power and the world that produces it, so that nuclear power stops with Fukushima.
