(en) alternativa libertaria fdca: G8 twenty years after - La linea d'ombra, this represented the G8 in Genoa 2001. (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

With it the apicality and tragic caesura, at least in Italy, of the experience constituted by the protest movements, the powerful cry of which had manifested itself in Seattle, 2 years earlier, is sanctioned. After this, the moral drainage and the political-organizational drift took a stable form first in our country, later in the continent and finally on a global level; fourth language revolution, profound and radical disturbance of the relations of production, the advent of social networks and the consequent triumph of the ego ... there are many causes, here absolutely unanalyzable. Adherence to the urgent, symbolic and predictive (!) Sense of collective participation was (perhaps) superior to all expectations; from trade union associations or Catholic voluntary work and not only to the vast area of Social Centers of different and multiple archaes and geopolitical positions, from the articulated front of "extreme pacifism" to that, more stale, of the radical left and / or class, from the more "mature" expressions, at the time, of the "migrant movement" to the political subjectivities of the revolutionary left of almost all of Europe ... in short, a plethora of groups, parties, movements, organized formations and individualities that on occasion resolve not to abstain in the face of the overwhelming negative postulation directed at the "Great Ones of the Earth". The result: oceanic multitudes flood the superb city (its Center and other urban areas) for a few days. The most salient preparatory event is held in Florence. It is here that the significant and important moments that characterize the confrontation and "competition" between the innumerable political and other subjectivities that constitute the axis of organizational development of the appointment are lived and consumed. Among the curiosities and "oddities" of the meeting in question, the protagonist vocation of Attac France must certainly be mentioned, his improbable scornful appreciation of Chomsky construction and thought and, as it turns out, the congruous and well-deserved dose of whistles of censorship received from the (few) comrades present in the circumstance.

But it is the demonstration in Naples, under the Christian Democrat minister White, which immediately marks what would have been the figure of Genoa. With all due respect to those who were convinced they could co-manage the squares, or to those who still trusted the state. Italian, for more.

And U.S"?

National anarchism has shown a sense of organization, political maturity and, above all, a united spirit. Present in forces coming a little from all over Italy and with almost all its expressions, organized and otherwise, it has preliminarily given life to two moments, preparatory to the best success of the aforementioned presence: one in the center and the other in the north. The second, held in Milan at the headquarters of the Milanese FAI, was attended by the militants of the then FdCA On the table, the unavoidable political and logistical-organizational issues: path, support points, reception, order service, pitfalls ... The chosen date is that of day 20 and the logistical reference and the "base" for our area (a "non-random" reference that will also be for the comrades coming from abroad) is identified in the CSA Pinelli, a reality already known to us for having hosted, a short time before, the First party of Alternativa Libertaria. In the west, precisely in Sampierdarena, the place dedicated to the concentration of forces is determined. From many localities, even in the provinces, the mobilization is so high as to allow the organization of red-black buses; awaiting them, upon arrival, at the motorway exits, viaducts, traffic junctions crossed ... the vision of an unequivocally militarized metropolis. The tension is palpable. awaiting them, upon arrival, at the motorway exits, viaducts, traffic junctions crossed ... the vision of an unequivocally militarized metropolis. The tension is palpable. awaiting them, upon arrival, at the motorway exits, viaducts, traffic junctions crossed ... the vision of an unequivocally militarized metropolis. The tension is palpable.

The march is significantly strengthened by conspicuous representatives of the variegated galaxy of grassroots syndicalism and, as is fitting, from the anarcho-syndicalist area. The whole, it should be noted, allows us to deduce the deliberate intention of marking a position that was anything but elitist, confusionist or, worse, self-objecting; after all, the same numbers are there to testify.
The "watchwords", the usual ones, perhaps too distinctly generic, generalist and even ... "idealist" (!), But one fact is certain and incontrovertible: the accentuation of the joint of communist values, that is the central theme, the The theme par excellence, the one relating to Social Justice and the egalitarian ideal, found in the procession of the best expressions of the Italian-organized Anarchist Movement its most open, generous and genuine manifestation and, above all, demonstrated the validity of the thesis that thereafter a few years would reveal itself, with dramatic relevance, hopes the scandalous and shocking process of concentration of wealth in the hands of a few, very few ... incomprehensible, obscure, offensive process,immoral and unheard of not only in the light of ethical readings but also by making use of the algorithmic versatility offered by the most varied scientific communities, that of anthropologists, demographers, mathematicians, logicians ...

Completely out of place, or at least inappropriate, to go into the news. Production in this area is already huge; in truth, then, it is a question of the product of library research rather than of archives; translating: more literature than documents, more opinions than facts... but this is not essential.

Utile, nonostante tutto, invece, sottolineare come il corteo cd sindacale ha saputo caratterizzarsi, fra l'altro, anche per l'aprioristico rigetto dello schema di gioco-spettacolo incluso nella tradizionale formula provocazione-reazione pronosticata dai più. In effetti, la "controparte" (in divisa) ha invano atteso ore per assumere il pretesto legale (bastevole) per attacchi di genere alzo zero (alla Bava Beccaris, per capirci). Grazie all'azione puntuale, pronta e cosciente di militanti "più preparati", tutto ha funzionato alla perfezione. Nonostante le "notizie" che man mano giungevano da altre aree del "tentacolare" assalto alla zona rossa, nonostante l'indole "sospettosa" e "diffidente" ostentata da alcuni settori della sinistra radicale, davanti alle performances di qualche decina di detti Black Bloc che, forse "confusi", hanno optato per la nostra area anziché per altre più "affini". Tattiche e tecniche che non tenevano, quando in buonafede, conto della realtà specifica di questo paese. Totalmente capzioso ora (varrebbe la pena di citare: è quel che ci proietta verso remote regioni e oscure perdite di tempo) il dibattito intorno a "natura" ed "identità" dei soggetti coinvolti , considerando che mai l'analisi della nozione di "violenza" ed il ricorso alla stessa si debba configurare in termini morali, moraleggianti o moralistici, bensì in quelli, assai più attendibili, di opportunità.

Other "processions" followed, rivers, swarms... returning to the bus parking areas or to their respective "bases" (for us Pinelli). During one of these, the tragic news of the killing of Carlo Giuliani reached us; that of the slaughter at Diaz would follow shortly thereafter. The rest is history, more than news.

What remains of those days, twenty years later?

Easy to say we were right.

That the violence of the State has such a long hand that it still chases Vincenzo for some showcase, that a never-cut thread binds Diaz to what is happening today in prisons, and that those who thought they could compare themselves with the State on equal terms of the violence and on that of the co-management of the square he had blatantly wrong the accounts.

That we had well identified both the enemy, the accelerated transnational capitalist, with its increasing inequalities and limiting freedoms, first of all that of the movement of people, and the possible response strategies, the patient weaving of all oppositions into a plural movement, capable of thinking globally, as it was then called, and acting locally.
And, after 20 years of mourning, many issues of that time are still our work agenda, and we start again from the climate question, from the care of the territories, from requests for solidarity and social justice. Now as then, and as before, because we come from far away, and there is still so much to do. We didn't miss yesterday, we won't miss tomorrow
