From 20th August I’m going to start a hunger strike, which is symbolic but it intends to contribute to the path of solidarity and struggle we are running outside and inside, in no particular order, in unison, with united or different voices and methods, in different areas and with different people. But always against a common enemy and for a common goal. The common enemy is the war of conquest, exploitation, slavery, repression, diffused and total destruction. Today the common enemy is called global techno-scientific, patriarchal, terrorist and totalitarian system of the multinationals and imperialist States and is at the height of its power and spread but also of its most deadly and irreversible crisis. And the common goal is the knocking down of this system and of all forms of slavery and exploitation, for a free, healthy and just world, for all its expressions and natural elements, as essential basis of life, and for its and therefore our continuity.

This is a contribution of struggle and solidarity that is possible even from the inside, and even in this nth wave of heat, the nth sign of a dying planet, which makes it difficult even to think and write, and even more so if we are locked up in coffins of bricks and concrete always at the mercy of our hangmen.

I want to call this initiative ‘operation Fukushima’. A topical name. Another name for civilization and progress. A name for the appalling pain and annihilation administered to life by the few bosses and many servants of civilization and progress for the power and wealth of the few. It could also be called Chernobyl, Muhleberg, Beznau, Lucens, Hiroshima, Depleted Uranium, IBM, Trino Vercellese, Superphonix, Ansaldo, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology, Asbestos, Cancer, Deep Water Horizon, Xstrata, Monsanto, TAV, Alternative Energy, Green KKKapitalism, Belo Horizonte.

A name to remember, also with the words of the cell FAI/FRI Olga (thank you, thank you so much brothers and sisters of the Olga cell, thank you so much to each brother and sister and group and people on insurrectionist and revolutionary action!), that… it is only a matter of time and a European Fukushima will harvest the dead on our continent!

‘Operation Fukushima’: a name to oppose the terrible and real terms of the irreversible social, economic and environmental crisis to the ridiculous anti-insurrection persecution and the stupid names of the ‘brilliant anti-terrorism operations’, such as ‘Ardire’ [Boldness], ‘Tramonto’, [Sunset], ‘Mangiafuoco’ [Fire Eater], ‘Blackout’, ‘ORAI’, ‘Cervantes’… of the Italian version of Don Quixote wardens of global imperialism. As they can’t stop the signs of the tempest, they hit solidarity and the prisoners of the insurgent path of solidarity and struggle.

A name also to repeat with force: terrorism, absolute evil and crime and ‘social high dangerousness’, brutality and cowardice, lies and murderous aggression belong to the dominant system and those who defend it. Legitimacy and force of reason, vital urgency and humanity,  the assumption of genuine, individual and collective responsibility – more urgent than ever in history – for human society, the world and their future belong to us, authentic insurgents and revolutionaries, who really struggle against this system.

So it is also a name, a small contribution, to affirm how foolish is this miserable, murderous and criminal gang of bosses and their servants (politicians, scientists, cops, judges, journalists, culture and religion and commentators and instigators of all sorts and camouflage even in the ranks of our ‘official’ movement…) if they think that their most devastating and lowest persecutions and reprisals in the best nazi-fascist tradition can stop our struggles and silence our voices inside and outside on the path of solidarity and struggle.
