Terrorism - the bogyman of XXI century
Events that have occurred on 11th September 2001 marked the beginning of
a new era, fulfilled with state repression worldwide. Using the al-kaida's
(?) attack as an excuse, USA have begun the greatest retaliation against all
those who momentary find themselves on the opposite positions facing
intercessors of exploitation and totalitarian democracy. The interests of
the ruling classes, not only USA but of other states as well, have finally
got the opportunity to put all their enemies in one basket and kill them all
in one stroke. The interpretation of the term terrorism is now wrongly
extending on activities of various anarchistic and anarcho-syndicalist
organization and groups all over the world. That is why we, named below,
raise our voices against all pogrom-like calls given by world leaders and
"ours", domestic, bourgeois, who seeks the easiest way of satisfying their
mafia bosses in "war against terrorism".

First of all it is necessary to define the term terrorism, term that is
now being used without drawing a distinction, to express the activities of
Islam terrorist organization, Greek and Italy state communists, as well as
members of anarcho-syndicalist organizations and other libertarian
organizations and groups; in spite of huge differences between mentioned
groups and their totally opposite ideologies.

The only true definition of terrorism is the one that defines terrorism
as an attack on civilian targets.

All those attacks which are carefully directed towards the structures of
power, administration of USA, EU and NATO, as well as on the other
hierarchic and authoritative structures within the society, under the
presumption of wide support, can only be treated by definition of legitimate
anti-fascists resistance. Considering the way of "handling" recently
arrested persons suspected of co-operation with state-communist
urban-guerilla organization (17th November - Greece), we can draw the
general principle of criminal proceedings - all members of "terrorist"
organization are a priori condemned to life sentence wrapped with kafkian
process. This one and other similar processes only corroborate the thesis
that European Union along with its satellites, using USA model, is turning
into super-State in which all left-wing organizations, placed outside the
strictly controlled time-table, are brutally persecuted. Speaking on that
behalf, we can find latest psychotic outburst of the Dutch Parliament
proclaiming anarchistic squats as "terrorist nests".

Letter-bombs which are being sent to the EU bureaucrats by the phantom
"anarchist" group from Italy (Informal Anarchist Federation - FAI) is
another one in the line of badly planned police frame-ups which for its goal
has total criminalization of our movement. It is important to know that no
anarchist group - orientated towards that type of struggle- would ever
jeopardize rest of the movement by accepting the name which is very similar
to the public Italian anarchist federation - FAI. Also, it is important to
underline that anarchist are not creating bombs which do not explode.

It is necessary, once and for all, to block those mouths - mouths
capable only for throwing out lies and falsifications. Mouths that will find
good (?) explanation for every, even the most brutal, aspect of violence
conduct over freedom of individual or group of people by the State and
capitalistic system. It will be hard to block those mouths - they represent
platform of entire bourgeois world. Only the intensive and, unfortunately,
violent action of wide masses of working people can shut those mouths of
suffering and pain, and reinstate new world - the world of equality,
and solidarity - the Anarchy.

Only global revolution, carried out on anarchistic principles, can
guarantee that terrorism will find the place that it deserves in human
civilization - in junkyard of authorities ideas.
