Introduction:
AMIDST SOCIETY

To appear here and there with the strong desire for intimacy, trust and
complicity. Always in search of a life, that feels genuine. A life that
does not have to censor in different shades. A life that through
authenticity is ready to establish its own path to coherence joyfully.
That wants to be more than an roaming shadow in the midst of society…

The newspaper project in hand Fantasma is an expression of this search.
It arised from the circumstance of involuntary but self-chosen
clandestinity and is for that regard not bound by place.We, the authors,
foster the desire as made-invisibles to talk about this be-invisible.
About lived experiences and considerations in this situation. From us,
as from other comrades – and that would be extremly wonderful – that
find themselves on such a journey right now or have once. And because
the invisible can not exist without its counterpart, we encourage all
the visibles, that have been indirectly affected by a situation like
this, to send in your  self-written contributions. To put the
reflections and initiatives, away from concrete, technical questions, up
for a public debate and thus open up a space for discussions and
exchange with all interested. The desire to bring back to life the in
all directions extending demystification of clandestinity, from the
illusion of the wild and spectacular rebel-life (a fiction of Hollywood
with its usual cast, consisting of protagonists and spectators) to that
illusion of the anxious-paranoid vagabond-lifes. Definitely theres
moments full of wild enthusiasm and the urge for action. As well as full
of doubts and desperation. But either of these sides only build the
black/white frame which holds together the many different shades of grey
that we are made of. To mistake this frame as the whole and let it be a
fixed picture would only lead to a reduction of this complex life with
all its tangles to the replicated spectacle with already prefabricated
fixed pictures and roles.

The desire to highlight, through this instrument of communications, all
of the hidden capabilities of the individual, their autonomy, their
endless room to maneuver and to define it as a starting point for a
revolutionary transformation of society. It does not matter in which
specific situation one finds itself right now.

The state persecutor the finger showing, we hope to be able to
contribute with this paper to the anarchist project and to grow with it.
But to make this humble project known and spread it all over the place,
we are dependent on the solidarity of the visibles. Unfortunately our
situation does not allow to find you, get to know you, to talk from eye
to eye, present our projects at an info/talk or else. So we call on you
to copy and spread this irregular appearing paper. To give it into the
prisons and the last corners of this society, so that it can be part of
a antiauthoritarian debate in view of a social revolution, across the
borders of visibility and encourage to subversive action. Thanks a lot
for all of your solidarity and support through words and actions….

We hope to receive contributions, suggestions, as well as criticism on
the e-mail below.
We are also appreciative of translations of every issue (which can also
be send to the e-mail), so that this can be lay-outed and published.
