International anti-capitalist demonstration against G20 summit: G20 Welcome to hell

Source - International anticapitalist demonstration | G20 Welcome to Hell 2017 

Thursday, 6 July 2017
4 p.m., St. Pauli Fischmarkt, Hamburg
When the heads of government of the world’s 20 most powerful countries are arriving on 6 July and the assembled world media are waiting for news from the crisis zone around Hamburg’s exhibition halls, we’ll be already in the streets.
We are mobilizing internationally to turn Hamburg into a location and an exclamation mark of resistance against old and new authorities of capitalism.
A demonstration at the G20 summit’s eve will express protest and resistance, radical critique and practice against the patriarchal and capitalist state of affairs. We are resisting the discursive priority of receptions and fireside chats during the days to follow.
G20 is creating a temporary state of emergency and its political bias stands for everything we are fighting against. The police and military are present on the roofs of Hamburg during the summit, and they are perpetuating capitalist regimes all over the world. Neo-liberal and protectionist capitalist models are both similarly part of global exploitation, walling-off and impoverishment.
Whether this cynical violence is going to be obvious or rather superimposed by grand receptions and beautiful pictures is also at stake during Hamburg’s hot days. We are opposing the summit as well as any effort to include political critique and resistance as a part of the summit’s orchestration as a democratic institution.
Summits like G20 and institutions like IMF, WTO or the World Bank being instruments of peace, human rights or climate policies is one of the great lies and illusions of the powers-that-be.
When the pieces of global politics are picked up after the summit on 9 July, capitalism and exploitation will still exist. At the end of the day, there will be final statements and success-oriented resumes of the assembled bodies politic and the public. Crises and wars are part of the capitalist system, likewise protest and scandals are part of the summit orchestration. It’s up to us to open a new page and new resistance perspectives.
The apparently unchallenged triumph of capitalism has left behind a trail of devastation. War is prevalent not only as military conflict, but as well in more and more people’s minds. A racist mob is mobilising in Germany, around Europe and all over the world. Racial and nationalist ideas are getting acceptable again. Among others, right-wing populists and fascists have managed to accomplish a shift of society’s discourse to the right.
Strong states and closed borders are being called for more and more forcefully. Proxy wars for spheres of interests – instruments of world order created in the century before last and the one before that – appear more than ever to be legitimate means to achieve political ends. We are living in a time of rising nationalism and hate towards minorities. Pogroms against refugees and other population groups beyond majority, attacks on homosexual, trans* or inter* people as well as the significance of fanaticism of whatever persuasion are increasing dramatically.
Migration and flight will be focal points of the summit and of the protests as well. It’s not freedom of movement for all, not even safe flight corridors to prevent mass death in the Mediterranean, to be established. Rather, borders and the flow of goods are being safeguarded. Cynicism and fishy deals prevail, while the summit is taking its course.
The logic of capitalist value is supposed to expand into the last nooks in the metropolises as well as in rural regions‘ periphery. Yet, world-wide capitalist penetration is also connecting the terrain of resistance. For instance, resistance against mining projects in Columbia is linked to urban-political struggles against the coal power station Moorburg in Hamburg harbor which is using Columbian coal as a resource.
Devastation and migration due to global warming are related directly to the struggle for the right to stay. Connections of capitalist exploitation interests can be demonstrated, criticized and confronted politically. G20 resistance is supposed to focus on these inter-dependencies on a local and global scale and to develop mutual relations and resistant practices.
Various and unpredictable mass resistance will disrupt the smooth proceedings of the summit’s performance.
Many people will stand up against this staging of power – politically and practically. Unlike civil opposition, we are not going to suggest alternatives in order to keep the capitalist system alive. We are going to oppose oppression, exploitation and exclusion with collectivity and solidarity.
Organise yourselves, be creative and contribute vociferously, angrily and powerfully to the international anti-capitalist demonstration on 6 July. Let this demonstration be a first expression of our resistance and our unconciliatory antagonism towards the prevailing conditions and the summit spectacle. Up with social revolution!
We will start on 6 July at 4 p.m. with a great opening meeting. Cultural, musical and political contributions will be held. From 7 p.m., the demonstration will be approaching the red zone and the final meeting will be held a stone’s throw from the summit’s location in the exhibition halls.
Don‘t let capitalism get you down – live resistance!
Autonomous and anti-capitalist alliance “G20 – welcome to hell!”

Prayer to Our Lady of Anarchy

Source - What is Pagan Anarchism? – GODS & RADICALS 23.7.2016

Oh black-robed lady with the bleeding eyes,


Red-belted, standing on an open book,

With hands outstretched but empty. Hear our cries!

In dread and sorrow for the things you’ve seen

You weep for us. And yet your heart is fire.

Oh red and black Madonna, let desire

Come blazing through us till we cannot sleep.

Destroy our apathy

And help us keep

Our covenant with rage,

Our own bright fire.

And let our eyes bleed with the same desire

Until the day arrives when we shall see

Fulfillment of the prophecy

That someday soon, a flood

Shall cleanse these streets and wash your cheeks of blood.

In Spain before the Civil War, anarchism was known as “the Idea,” and anarchist activists had a reputation for almost monastic austerity and self-discipline. Despite these semi-religious overtones, the far majority of them were atheists and many were militantly hostile to organized religion. Today’s anarchist movement still includes many atheists, but also a large minority of religious people – including pagans. Pagan anarchism is a reality, a fact which would probably surprise many of the past adherents of “the Idea.” So what exactly is pagan anarchism?

Il Galeone (canto anarchico) - Belgrado Pedrini

Il Galeone, Belgrado Pedrini e la "Liberazione"
di Riccardo Venturi.

"Il galeone" è una poesia che Belgrado Pedrini, anarchico carrarese, scrisse in galera, a Fossombrone, nel 1967. Il titolo originale della poesia era Schiavi. Fu poi messa in musica da Paola Nicolazzi sulla base di una canzone popolare intitolata, curiosamente, Se tu ti fai monaca; la Nicolazzi, nel trasformarla in canzone (e in uno dei più noti canti anarchici italiani di ogni tempo), ne omise però la quarta e l'ultima strofa, che così recitano:

Nessun nocchiero ardito, 
sfida dei venti l’ira? 
Pur sulla nave muda, 
l’etere ognun sospira! 
(...)
Falci del messidoro, 
spighe ondeggianti al vento! 
Voi siate i nostri labari, 
nell’epico cimento!


Belgrado Pedrini.Fu poi pubblicata, senz'alcuna indicazione di titolo, nel giornale Presenza anarchica, a cura dei gruppi anarchici riuniti di Massa e Carrara, supplemento quindicinale a Umanità Nova, il 5 ottobre 1974.

Fin qui la storia di questa canzone scritta in galera. La quale, specialmente per il suo linguaggio, potrebbe far sorridere il lettore e l'ascoltatore di oggi. E' il linguaggio aulico di molti canti anarchici classici. Ma il sorriso scompare immediatamente quando si pensa al fatto che "Il galeone" è in realtà il simbolo stesso, anche nella parola stessa, della galera, anzi, della "galera infame". Quella dove il suo autore era rinchiuso.

Belgrado Pedrini aveva iniziato la Resistenza ben prima dell'8 settembre; era, la sua, una vita di resistenza da sempre. Durante il fascismo conduce la sua lotta clandestina, poi già nel 1942 partecipa ad azioni di lotta. Si unisce poi alla formazione partigiana anarchica "Elio" con cui lotta fino alla...

Stavo per dire "Liberazione". Ma la "liberazione" del partigiano Belgrado Pedrini si chiama galera. Nel 1942, per poter continuare la lotta, lui e i suoi compagni sottraggono ad alcuni industriali fascistoni milanesi e carraresi un bel po' delle loro ricchezze; nel 1949 il tribunale di Livorno giudica tali atti come "reati comuni" e condanna Belgrado Pedrini a trent'anni di carcere. Questa la ricompensa.

E sono galere su galere. Nel 1974, il presidente Leone gli concede la grazia; ma, appena uscito, viene rinchiuso in una casa di lavoro presso Pisa, perché deve scontare ancora tre anni per tentata evasione. Liberato finalmente dopo un'intensa campagna per la sua scarcerazione, torna a Carrara dove partecipa all'attività degli anarchici locali. Muore nel 1979 all'età di sessantasei anni. Ma per Belgrado Pedrini non c'è mai stata nessuna "liberazione" da una vita intera passata in galera. Quella del fascismo e quella dello "stato democratico". [RV]

El Galeón

Somos tripulación anémica
de una galera infame
a la que ronda la muerte
llevada por la lenta hambre.

Nunca horizontes claros
abren nuestra aurora
y en la escuálida cubierta
grita el centinela cada hora.

Nuestro día discurre
entre fétidas cadenas
somo demacrados esclavos
de cadenas de hierro estrechas.

Surge sobre el mar la luna.
rotan las estrellas en el cielo
pero sobre nuestras cabezas
siempre el mismo fúnebre velo.

Multitud de esclavos coléricos
inclinados gimen a los remos.
Rompamos estas cadenas
o de remar moriremos!

¿Qué gimen los esclavos
de esta fila de remos?
Mejor morir en las ondas
del resplandeciente océano.

Rememos hasta que la nave
se quiebra ante la rompiente
en alto los rojinegros
entre vientos hirientes!

Esa piedosa colcha
de ola espumosa y riza
que surja un día en los mártires
el sol de la anarquía.

Arriba esclavos, a las armas, a las armas!
la ola gorjea y sube
truenos, rayos y ráfagas
el galeón moribundo [se hunde].

Arriba esclavos, a las armas, a las armas!
Castiguemos con brazo fuerte!
alcanzaremos, alcanzaremos justicia !
O la libertad o la muerte!

alcanzaremos, alcanzaremos justicia !
O la libertad o la muerte!
Il Galeone

Siamo la ciurma anemica
d’una galera infame
su cui ratta la morte
miete per lenta fame.

Mai orizzonti limpidi
schiude la nostra aurora
e sulla tolda squallida
urla la scolta ognora.

I nostri dì si involano
fra fetide carene
siam magri smunti schiavi
stretti in ferro catene.

Sorge sul mar la luna
ruotan le stelle in cielo
ma sulle nostre luci
steso è un funereo velo.

Torme di schiavi adusti
chini a gemer sul remo
spezziam queste catene
o chini a remar morremo!

Cos’è gementi schiavi
questo remar remare?
Meglio morir tra i flutti
sul biancheggiar del mare.

Remiam finché la nave
si schianti sui frangenti
alte le rossonere
fra il sibilar dei venti!

E sia pietosa coltrice
l’onda spumosa e ria
ma sorga un dì sui martiri
il sol dell’anarchia.

Su schiavi all’armi all’armi!
L’onda gorgoglia e sale
tuoni baleni e fulmini
sul galeon fatale.

Su schiavi all’armi all’armi!
Pugniam col braccio forte!
Giuriam giuriam giustizia!
O libertà o morte!

Giuriam giuriam giustizia!
O libertà o morte!
