(en) [Italy] Solidarity without borders - Mutual support group By A.N.A. (pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 20 Apr 2020 07:51:19 +0300

This group was thought by the companions and companions of the Federation Turinese Anarchist. Below the presentation text. ---- What we want to do? ---- Create bridges that do not leave the most fragile alone, that allow building solid networks of mutual support. ---- They want us to be isolated, divided, suspicious, to prevent the spread of psycho-police, to demonstrate that surviving the epidemic also depends on our ability to organize, to fight, to support each other. ---- Will you use a mask? You don't know, you don't want to, you can't order it over the internet? Look for someone who lives close to you and can help you. ---- Are you alone, fragile and unable to do your shopping? Point this out here: you can find someone who will lend you a hand and another who you can be useful to, in turn. ---- Were you fined? Want to know how to make an appeal? Check it out here: you can find someone who gives you the precise directions.

Are you hostage to your work? Are you afraid of losing your place if you protest because you don't feel safe in the factory, in the workshop, in the hospital? Get organized with your co-workers and mark your struggle here on the list. If the media are silent, if entrepreneurs are threatening you, letting people know what happens is so that others can move in solidarity, so that silence does not facilitate repression.

So many people have a fever but are locked up at home without a test or medical visit. Many are afraid for themselves and for those who live with them. Let us try to apply collective pressure to change the situation. A single drop is lost in the sea. Many drops can blow off a storm.

Faced with the epidemic, it is easy to find yourself fragile and unable to react. Especially if we are not so young, strong, if we fear for our loved ones, for the people we wish well. The reality is very harsh. In the heart of the First World, in the center of the richest area of the country, people get sick and die without a proper cure. They tell us that they have done the impossible, but the truth is told to us by the basic doctors who are unable to admit even those who are in desperate conditions. We all know how things are going. In so many homes there are sick people, who receive directions by phone, without oxygen, tests, oximeters: those who live with the sick risk getting sick and spreading the contagion.

They say that everything is fine, but every day hundreds and hundreds of people die. Some people do not even know: they died at home, without anyone testing them.

The corner we were descending over the past few decades has suddenly become precipitous. We are inmates at home, under military control, watched by drones and apps. Prisoners, children, while the noise of ambulances tears the air, we are led to believe that we are responsible for the unstoppable spread of morbidity, to hide the responsibility of those who yesterday and today are in the government of the country and the regions.

Be clear: guaranteeing yourself and ensuring the safety of others, wearing masks and staying at a distance, is necessary today: each of us is responsible for our own actions. We anarchists know well: for us individual responsibility is the pillar of a society of free and equal.

Conte[Prime Minister of Italy]issues edicts like a king and communicates them on national networks, while the oppositions are limited to saying that he needs to tighten the mesh of the mass home confinement to which we are subjected.

They promised alms and those who can no longer pay fees, bills, we know that these bills will only be postponed.

In the periphery, fear and poor sales have caused so many neighborhood food businesses to close: it is easy to predict that few will reopen.

However, there are those who are unable to do their shopping: soon the government alms will not be enough.

The information has more and more the character of war correspondence, where the enemies are those who run or go to a more distant supermarket.

Whoever narrates his daily life in times of epidemic is threatened with dismissal.

Every day the media feeds irrational distrust, the hunt for the infectious.

They want to prevent the seed of doubt from germinating, from growing and strengthening the plant of criticism. We are all collectively deprived of the possibility of knowledge and control over research, experimentation, the choice of objectives.

The Army is not just on the street to control lawbreakers who change every three days: in this country there are more police than doctors. The Army is on the streets with armored cars because someone could doubt whether our homes are lazaretos where, one after the other, we will all get sick. In silence.

Someone waits for it to end, motionless. Instead, however far the margins are, something can be done.

We must break the chain of isolation, with solidarity, mutual support, the construction of networks that make us more autonomous in relation to the instituted, better able to exchange information about everyday life in times of mass home confinement, mask or a packet of noodles where it serves, to develop a test collectively for those who are sick and closed at home.
