[Italy] Bialysturbo Caravan: Announcement and useful general information
Translation received on 10/25/2020:
Complicity with anarchist prisoners
Solidarity with those who rebel from within
We’ve lost count of the repressive operations that have hit comrades in recent years. But we remember them all. The last one on June 12 called Bialystok has even been launched beyond the Italian borders, reaching into other countries to arrest them.
We’re far from getting accustomed to/ trivialize the arrests linked to all these terrorism investigations. They paint us as traveler anarchists of conflict. Of course, we will never enter into the canons of the produce-consume-die triptych, to which we must add “shut up and stay where you are at a safe distance from other people.” We do not want to recognize and legitimize borders like authority does, we move and we will move, to make experiences, to give solidarity, to occupy again and again in parts of the world to subvert and liberate, starting from ourselves.
We will not let ourselves suffocate and with our positive energy we want to embark on the path together in a slightly sparkling project, creating a caravan with our means, tools, self-productions and knowledge without asking anyone’s permission.
The long tally of repression has been raised not so much by the investigations that have always been there, but by the fact that whatever you do is now an element that can be charged as an accusation. So if greeting someone, a rally or walking around to meet people who resist and fight for freedom is turning into terrorism, then we will continue to do so, increasingly aware that we do not expect any concessions from the State we want to bring down, nothing less .
This caravan will become what we want it to be. The idea is that of departing from the center of Italy towards the south, reaffirming our solidarity with all our imprisoned comrades. We want to occupy streets, squares, meadows under the walls of prisons, go to find comrades who can welcome us in these places, creating moments of exchange, confrontation and initiatives to self-finance this caravan and perhaps contribute some money to collaborate in the anti-repression funds.
We carry whatever we want in our cellar and spread the word to be ready to depart before winter.
Inflated tires and a full tank
REQUESTS FOR CONTACTS FOR EACH STAGE AND FOR MATERIAL SUPPORT
We are preparing a caravan in the month of November in solidarity with anarchist prisoners and against every cage from Rome to Sicily to hold concentrations of greetings below the infamous walls, charitable and not so charitable initiatives and, varied acts of presence in the street.
This is our blog bialystok.noblogs.org
and this is our email
email@example.com (email address with pgp key for those who want)
For logistical reasons we are still trying to co-organize the different stages with those who live in each area or in their vicinity, so join us! We are looking for contacts along the way that can host anti-repression benefit initiatives and, if you have something that you can contribute by giving us DIY products to sell or use in the kitchen, for the initiatives, that would be great!
We will bring a kitchen to the street or spaces, a drive-in movie theater, a distro, a screen printer, a handcrafting workshop and much more… we would also like to create discussions and debates around (and not) the book «the anarchists of Bialystok».
Without a doubt, we will be in Rome the last week of October and in Naples for the anti-prison convention to be held on November 7 and 8.
The stages, with departure at the beginning of November from Rome and an expected arrival in Sicily at the end of November.
AND THEN, IF WE DEFINE WHERE WE WILL STOP, WE WILL CROSS THESE REGIONS:
