NOTE: This is a text by comrade Carlos in reply to that of the IRI-BD: Amelie y Fallon, de la arrogancia imperialista a la miseria pequeñoburguesa 3 March.
Translated from Italian by act for freedom now
I am responding on a personal level to the slanderous aggression against my comrades in affinity, Fallon and Amelie.
One thing that characterizes internationalism is the struggle against the concept of nation, power and authority, so the physical and mental borders built by governments to fend off fraternal and free co-existence between people from different parts of the world are put in question.
That is why, internationalist lefties, your reaching the point of saying that these two anarchists came to this region ‘to live an experience with the peoples of the developing world after leaving their lives in civilized Quebec’, made me think about the contempt you showed for some people from abroad who are resolved to realize their destructive passion against the State/Capital, be it Canadian, Mexican, European or wherever else.
At least we are not looking for the partial destruction of just one State – in fact taken separately States are just the tentacles of world power – nor are we trying to unite efforts/capabilities exclusively between Mexican people or with ‘the revolutionaries of the developing world’. On the contrary we struggle along with any free person, whether they were born here or in China.
