(en) Italy: 25th April - Liberation Day [it]

Date Tue, 25 Apr 2006 07:57:09 +0300

From: Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici <internazionale-A-fdca.it>
Anarchist Communists will never forget all those who struggles against the
terribile fascist and nazi dictatorships and stand with those who died, men and
women moved by the freedom-loving spirit, fighting as part of an armed an
unarmed Resistance movement for the real Liberation of Italy and Europe from
nazism and fascism. The Liberation of Italy was the work of the people who
rebelled against the nazi and fascist domination. But its work was prevented
from going all the way and bringing about a complete change within society,
thanks to the influence of the occupying forces, the political forces allied to
them, and the "democratic" compromises of the Communist Party.
The Resistance was not only the 1943-45 Resistance in Italy, but the long
struggle against fascism and nazism that involved millions of people. Fascism
and nazism were the "preventive counter-revolution" Luigi Fabbri wrote about in
1922, designed to contain the mass movements against the capitalist system
which had been shaker after World War I in what anarchists even then called the
"class war". The most authoritarian regimes are always at the service of
economic forces who want to wage war on the workers' struggles for emancipation
- they are merely one of capitalism faces. And that is something that all those
who fought in the Resistance knew well.

And it is exactly for these reasons that anti-fascism today cannot be allowed
to become a simple question of public order, as the police and the media would
have it. Merely a clash between two opposing groups of "fans". If there is a
clash of civilizations today, it continues to be one where those who defend the
liberty and dignity of all oppose the servants of the same old bosses who seek
to humiliate and offend anyone who is different or weak.

And this year, too, the streets will be filled on 25th April with those who
represent anti-fascism, make no mistake about it. We will be there. And,
together with many other comrades, we will continue to do so all year round!
