In May of this year, the anarchist prisoner Alfredo Cospito was transferred to the 41bis isolation regime. The torture method of sensory deprivation aims to break his rebellious spirit and silence him. In order to obtain the removal of his isolation conditions, our comrade started an unlimited hunger strike on October 20. On December 1st – on the 42nd day of the hunger strike – a review of the conditions of detention decided to continue the torture procedure. If the Italian fascist state persists in its practice of isolation, Alfredo may not see the end of this year. But his death will not be a suicide: it will be the murder under torture of a vengeful political justice.
Let’s prevent this murder
The most passionate form of revolutionary solidarity is to continue the struggles for which our compasses are behind bars. It was in this spirit that on December 11, during a night-time sabotage action, we went to a pylon of the Fessenheim-Paris EHV line and unscrewed the bolts. The pylon is still standing, but its statics are clearly compromised. Let our revolutionary anger act in alliance with nature, and let a winter storm do the rest!
Alfredo has always been able to link the question of social revolution with that of ecology and, through his words and deeds, connect the ecocidal plundering of our planet with the struggle against the dominant powers, exploitation and oppression. In his statement on the shooting in the knee of the Italian nuclear industry leader Roberto Adinolfi (ansaldo nucleare) and later in various statements of the procè in the Scripta Manent case, he described the need to anchor a revolutionary perspective in the anti-nuclear movement. In a valuable contribution to the debate, he also spoke in 2018 about the struggle against the CIGÉO project for the burial of nuclear waste in the French village of Bure in the Meuse. Referring to the idea of diversity of tactics practiced there, he suggests an intensification of the forms of struggle chosen. This is one of the contributions that were later used to justify the hardening of his detention conditions.

We learn from the media that at least seven electric vehicle chargers, located in various places in Lecce, have been sabotaged and rendered unusable by foam. On some of the columns were found the inscription “For Alfredo, Anna, Juan,” in reference to the imprisoned anarchists on hunger strike against the 41 bis prison regime and the hostile life sentence (Alfredo Cospito, imprisoned under 41 bis in Bancali Prison in Sassari, has been on hunger strike to the bitter end since Oct. 20, Anna Beniamino has been on hunger strike in solidarity since Nov. 7, while Juan Sorroche has been on strike for a month, from Oct. 25 to Nov. 24). According to local media reports, the sabotage took place “starting from at least last Friday [Dec. 2].”

The world of prisons and their guardians must perish, stone by stone, bar by bar, car by car.
Freedom for Alfredo Cospito and all other prisoners: Prison Profiteers SPIE and Dussmann Attacked
The world of prisons and their guardians must come to ruin, stone by stone, bar by bar, car by car.
Just in time for the proclaimed day of action for Alfredo Cospito, we happened to stumble upon 3 cars of prison profiteers. We took advantage of this stumble and landed with small spikes in their tires, so lucky, our hearts danced with joy!
Like countless others, Alfredo’s desire for another world, a new one from the ashes of the old, has brought him directly to solitary confinement. This is for you, Alfredo. May actions and words break the isolation and find their way to you and all the other incarcerated.

Sabotage of a bundle of cables in the Florence-Pisa Nord highway
ON THE EVENING OF OCTOBER 28, I SET FIRE TO A BUNDLE OF CABLES ALONG THE FLORENCE – PISA NORD HIGHWAY. I CHOSE TO SABOTAGE THE LINE AFTER READING ON THE CABLES THE NAME OF A COMPANY THAT MAKES POWER LINE AND FIBER OPTIC CABLES. TO DO THIS I TIED TWO PIECES OF WOOD WITH WIRE ABOVE AND BELOW THE 6 CABLES. I INSERTED DIAVOLINA INTO THE CRACKS AND SPRINKLED THE WHOLE THING WITH GASOLINE. I DO NOT KNOW THE IMPACT OF THE ACTION BECAUSE THE MEDIA DID NOT REPORT ON IT. THE ACTION IS ALSO MEANT IN SOLIDARITY WITH ALFREDO, WHO IS ON HUNGER STRIKE. NO PUNISHMENT CAN DETER THOSE WHO LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST, THOSE WHO KNOW NO CALCULATIONS AND COMPROMISES.

In the night, he saw flames devouring a vehicle. Firepeople quickly intervene : 31 firepeople are engaged and a fire hose is used. The calcined corpse is the one of the second intervention vehicle from municipal police.

Haute Vallée de l’Aude : Mobile network breakdown caused by vandalism act
, 23 septembre 2022 (extract)
Since 9:30am, this 23rd september friday, many Haute Vallée households, especially in Quillan and Espéraza, are deprived of mobile and internet network. Reached, Orange operator specify that the breakdown has a vandalism act made on a optical fiber cable in the commune of Quillan for cause.
Apart from individuals, professionnals have also been touched by this breakdown : Bank paying terminals could not work in several shops.
(And, as the newspaper doesn’t precise to not give bad ideas, contrarily to the “Orange/Occitanie local loop intervention team responsible” who has published on twitter the linked photo. It’s along the TER (regional train) railway, after a swale was lifted, that a section of this cable was voluntarily cut.)
In recent times, we have seen the campus of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki turned into a release field for the murderous mania of the cops. Similar incidents of violence will become a daily occurrence in whichever campuses the university police are installed, which in order to get a foothold in the sanctuary will come accompanied by all the forces of the Greek police. This wave of repressive violence is intended to crush any possible resistance to the educational restructuring that has already been passed, namely the exclusion of the social base from higher education, disciplinary measures and the expulsion of students, cameras and controlled entry to schools, the alignment of curricula and research with the interests of capital.
In the wake of this restructuring we see more and more collaborations between Greek universities and military and police services, for whose needs research projects are carried out in the laboratories of the schools. These research projects, which concern border surveillance and the monitoring and suppression of militants, are funded by the EU and NATO to the tune of millions of euros.
In conclusion, within the framework of the European Defense Industrial Development Program, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the University of Patras in cooperation with the Hellenic Air Force and the Ministry of National Defense conducted the research project <<Project Lottus>> for the design of a drone for the protection of land and sea borders. As a continuation of this project, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Democritus University of Thrace and the University of Thessalias in cooperation with the Hellenic Aircraft Industry will carry out the industrial production of such a drone, which will be made available to Frontex and the coast guard, among others, the agencies responsible for thousands of murders and expulsions of migrants in the middle of the Aegean Sea. Similar research projects have been undertaken by the NTUA, under the EU-funded Horizon 2020 programme. From Jason and Poseidon to Andromeda and Ingenius, the NTUA has been involved time and again with the logistical upgrade of the border guard and the army. Another project that the NTUA has undertaken is Prevision, which promises to be a state-of-the-art tool in the hands of state security. The aim of the programme is to monitor and map individuals with deviant/radical attitudes and views. The coordinator of all these programmes, on behalf of the NTUA, is the EPISY, i.e. the research arm of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering.
