In the aftermath of the shipwreck that cost almost a thousand lives off the Sicilian coast, the only voices to be heard are those of a political class that exploits, misleads and howls in an indecently. Gentle racists lambast coarse racists, democrats study technical solutions to keep the "humanitarian crisis" out of sight and out of mind, intellectual defenders of legality call for moral rallies in the face of the barbarity produced by their own laws. True horror has the…
May 1, 2015: from Milan, capital of the crisis, to Europe After seven years of crisis the precarious pride has become rage and indignation against the burgeoning unemployment and the growth of poverty imposed by BCE & IMF  to most of the population with austerity policies, particularly in Italy, Greece and the rest of the Latin Europe. Social slaughter, plunder of wealth and common goods, the end of the public city are the bases upon which governments build their response to the economic crisis. The whole…
Last saturday, March 28, many cities mobilized for the date called by the Abitare nella Crisi network against Renzi government and austerity policies. A decentralized mobilization from northern to southern Italy, that featured as its protagonists the struggle movements, unavailable to make a step back in the fight against a development model centered on the great works system, devastation of the territories, precarity, racism and war on poors. In the many rebel and mestizo squares, packed with thousands of men…

The housing struggle and even beyond..

We translated our editorial from almost two months ago, which was written soon after a first, successful "March of the Peripheries", a day in which people from working-class and suburban neighbourhoods rose along housing rights militants and activists to tackle the gruesome Lupi housing plan, preventing people living in housing occupations and squats from accessing basic services and citizenship rights. As the Lupi minister himself was forced to resign after his associate Ettore Incalza - a longtime state manager which…
March 18 in Frankfurt was most assuredly an important day of struggle. An event that was able to tear, in the heterogeneity of the practices that were carried out, the veil that covered the pompous housewarming party of the new European Central Bank headquarters; that managed to communicate worldwide not just the condemnation of the murderous policies of the ECB and the Troika in general, but also the existence of a strong availability to radical social conflict as well, by…
Le 18 mars à Francfort a sans doute été une journée de lutte importante. Une journée qui a su percer, dans l'hétérogénéité de ses pratiques, le voile qui entourait l'inauguration en grande pompe du nouveau siège de la Banque Centrale Européenne. Qui a su communiquer à tout le monde non seulement la dénonciation des politiques meurtrières de la BCE et de la Troika en général, mais aussi l'existence d'une disponibilité forte et radicale au conflit social de la part de…
We publish hereafter a reflection by one of the 17 comrades of the Anomalia and ExKarcere social centres in Palermo hit by precautionary measures on tuesday, March 10.

A solidarity demonstration is scheduled tfor next friday,…

Face the Players, Fight the Game

M18: Let´s crash the Opening-Party of the ECB The spring of 2015 will see another symbolic landmark in European crisis policy emerge with the opening of the new European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt. The ceremony will allow the representatives of the European member-states to pat themselves on the back for their crisis-solutions whilst using the celebrations to prepare themselves (and us) for the next round of austerity programmes. They want to institutionalize the state of exception. But a lot…
The eviction campaign kicks off in order to pave the way for the approval of the new regional law on housing. While people are still resisting in via Baracca, the movements' response gets organized. Let's march from Piazza Medaglie d'oro at 6pm today. A direct attack against housing struggles. Early this morning, police showed up in large numbers at the new housing occupation in via Benedetto Marcello-via Toselli corner. After the eviction was carried out, as the readily arrived solidarity…
