Returning from self-imposed hiatus, to rethink what the 325 and Dark Nights project means, to work on several upcoming publications, but also it is healthy to take a step back back from the spectacle that counter-info can become, all too aware that without the insurrectional praxis it can become a void.
Without further ado, our collective will be bringing out a new Dark Nights publication next month concentrating on the militaristic hellscape that is occuring in Eastern Europe, which we see as a continuation of conflicts being waged in Syria, Yemen, previously in Iraq and Afghanistan, but also a continuation of the military industrial techno complex’s pursuit of total control. We find recent texts released by anarchists in the UK & Italy are a direction that all anarchists must pursue because an anti-militarist praxis is one of many anarchist priciples that has been forgotten or outright ignored by those of a more liberal, leftist and even communist deviations in anarchist circles. We are not miltaristic, we do not enlist in nationalistic or imerpialistic wars and we definitly do not join any army, be it democratic or fascist or communist! Too easily anarchists forget the disgusting ‘Manifesto of the Sixteen (1916)’, that even Kropotkin was a signatore of, that condoned joining the massacre in the trenches that was World War I.
We plan in the future to critique the miltaristic tendancy that has been occuring within anarchist circles internationally, beginning in Rojava and now manifesting itself in horrendous fashion in the Ukraine.
Further to the new Dark Nights publication, we are in the early stages of planning a new #13 edition of 325. We encourage any comrades, individuals and projects to contact us with proposals for articles to include in the new edition or any ideas for the direction it will take. We are wanting to make a shift away from an exclusive concentration on technology and science, to start to open up a critique and analysis on a international context. There have been recent proposals for what is known as an ‘International’ in the past few years, we want to further this critique and analysis that such comrades as Alfredo Cospito (‘What International?’), Gustavo Rodriguez and Gabriel Pombo da Silva, have already started. We are particulary interested in hearing from comrades internationally from their own struggles wherever they maybe, in how they relate to international co-ordination. Critiques and analysis of past manifestations of international networks will also be appreciated.
Against the drift towards militarisation, attack and sabotage the machines of control and massacre all around us.
Lets destroy their peace, continue our own war against the existent and against civilization’s grip upon our whole lives!
Absolute complicity and solidarity to anarchist comrades Gianluca Iacovacci & Evelin Sterni recently arrested by the Italian state.
