The new issue of Antipodi, the federation's six-monthly journal of
culture, politics and art. Together with the new issue, we are also
launching the journal's website where articles from previous issues of
the magazine will be found. The magazine is available on subscription (see
details below), in certain bookshops o directly from the Federazione dei
Comunisti Anarchici. The website is situated at http://www.fdca.it/antipodi
The globalized world always treats men and women as tools for
increasing profit. In western society, all phases of life are being
transformed into goods - beauty, illness and sex, too, not only labour
power. The freedom of the individual no longer exists, not even where
the individual's own body is concerned. The logic of the market is by
now being subtly introduced even in the most private areas of life -
from control over DNA, to the marketing of illness, to the
super-exploitation of the planet's resources and the incredible boom in

Women, men and children of all parts of the world are being "used" by
richer countries not only as an underpaid labour force (contributing to
the imposition in Western countries of a phase of deregulation in the
labour market), but now even as (more or less acquiescent) "spare
parts" for rich westerners. Within relationships between the sexes, the
female side is more vulnerable to the contradictions of this
commercialization - the supposedly greater freedom of the Western
female body with respect to a part of the Muslim world is easily

There remains only one alternative, the libertarian one, which foresees
the uniting of bodies in struggle, as is happening in various parts of
the world. Often, however, this means losing one's life during the
struggle to free oneself from the domination of this society - witness
events in Bolivia, for example. A libertarian alternative which leads
to the realization of the exact opposite of the present situation, a
situation at the "antipodes" of the present one, a situation where
there no longer exists private property, the exploitation of man by
man, wars, the mistreatment of nature which we are an integral part of
and which must be respected just as every living being on this earth.

In this issue we address some of these matters.

(article titles translated; the magazine is entirely in Italian)

* SAVERIO CRAPARO "Matrimony or Marketmony"
* ANTONIO POLITI "I'll buy you in bits"
* ADRIANA DAD "Migrating bodies"
* MONIA ANDREANI "WHo is a body?"
* GIANPAOLO ROSSI "The body and health in difficulty"
* IRENE & MARCO PAGANINI "Absolute Dominion over Nature"
* Bodies in struggle: corrispondence from Bolivia
* GIANCARLO LEONI "Producing and polluting - what harm am I doing you?
* GIANNI CIMBALO "Notes on life, values and death"

Also songs, readings, poetry from Dante to the present day. The works
of J.P. Witkin, chosen and freely arranged by Alessandra Borsetti
Venier, also lend to the dramatic nature of the subjects dealt with in
this issue.
