Youth Manifesto [France 2022]

This text is too beautiful and sad, too immediately important, that we (Sūnzǐ Bīngfǎ) could not and were not willing to wait until the next issue of Sūnzǐ Bīngfǎ to translate and publish it.

Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi: War and senile dementia [Ukraine]

Another translation of ‘Bifo” for which we sincerely thank comrade Thomas Walter, who can now live in safety from the targeting squads of the German repressive authorities in exile in Venezuela and who translated the text for us in German. The Spanish version from which the translation was made can be found here. Sunzi Bingfa. Riot Turtle translated the text into English for Enough 14.

“After 65 days on hunger strike, I was, as they said, a bag full of bones” [Dimitris Koufontinas, Greece]

One year after the beginning of last year’s hunger strike, Dimitris Koufontinas gave the first interview since those days to ‘The Press Project’. We publish here a translation. From our point of view, the interview marks the similarities, but also the differences between the current that Dimitris represents and those to which we feel connected, or not, as in the case of the Shining Path from Peru. However, our hearts will always be with those who are imprisoned in the dungeons of our mortal enemies. Sunzi Bingfa.

Osterholz Forest in Wuppertal, Germany: “We are ready for the revolt” – An interview

Wuppertal. Germany. Since August 15, 2019, the Osterholz forest, a forest area on the city border of Wuppertal and Haan, is occupied. From the beginning, insurrectionary texts appeared from the occupied Osterholz. Some were translated into many languages. Since May 2021, the situation in the forest has been coming to a head. The forest has been cleared in piecemeal for decades. This time 5.5 hectares are to be cleared. In addition, a compensation measure from an earlier clearing is to be bulldozed. And all this for a waste dump of a limestone pit. The company Oetelshofen has a clearing permit and even if various lawsuits by local residents are still running, the forest threatens to be evicted and cleared at the beginning of January 2022. Activists are calling on people to come to Osterholz to defend the forest.

We had a conversation with zeros and other digits who are actively campaigning for the forest. A conversation about the state of affairs in the Osterholz forest, insurrectionalism and the climate movement. Sunzi Bingfa

Hyperworld, Metaworld and the End of the World

“But it is not Facebook that has spawned the frustration, impotent anger and hatred. It is the increasingly unequal, precarious and violent economic system that is the breeding ground for collective aggression. And, of course, Facebook is also part of this system. The social networks, from which the warmth of bodies has disappeared, only reinforce this violence while glorifying its ineffectiveness. The more our rage grows, the more we say it out loud in the bell jar of the Connected, the bigger powerlessness becomes.” Another stunning text by Franco “Bifo” Berardi that leaves us no choice, either we accept the harshness of reality or we become accomplices to the horrors of domination. There is nothing in between. The text appeared on Commune Info on November 2. Sunzi Bingfa.

Wuppertal: Giorgos Zantiotis and his death are dragged through the mud [Germany]

Wuppertal. Germany. On November 1, 2021 Giorgos Zantiotis died in a cell in the district court of Wuppertal. It was not until November 7 that the Wuppertal public prosecutor’s office and the Wuppertal police confirmed his death. Not on their own initiative, but when asked by journalists. Since then, Giorgios Zantiotis and his death have been dragged through the mud.

Welcome to dystopia

Wuppertal. Germany. In the night of July 14th to 15th, the alarm sirens howled over Wuppertal. Howling sirens, a memory of the monthly exercises during the Cold War in the Netherlands. But this time it was not an exercise. A few fragmented thoughts written down during a night of emergency in Wuppertal.

Cesare Battisti on hunger strike

Italy. June 7. 2021. According to his family members, Cesare is on hunger strike for several days now. For months he has been held in total isolation in a wing in Calabria prison because the other prisoners there are Islamist terrorists. Cesare has repeatedly demanded his transfer because he has received multiple death threats from Islamists and he is virtually unable to see his relatives. Imprisoned 40 years after acts for which he has self-critically accepted political responsibility, authorities have accused him of being particularly dangerous in order to execute the state’s revenge.

Cesare must get out of this situation, which aims to destroy him.

On the death of Bernd Heidbreder

And always the same image. One has two eyes too many. Sometimes, only at night, you think you know the way. Maybe we always return the path which we have laboriously won in the alien sun at night. It could be. The sun is heavy, as with us in the deep summer. But we said goodbye during the summer. The women’s dresses shine for a long time from the green. And now we ride along. So it must be autumn. At least there, where sad women know about us.

Rainer Maria Rilke

How is it possible to write about someone you last saw more than a quarter of a century ago and whom you didn’t really know back then, even though you had experienced so much together? How to explain it, those crazy times when we all had one foot in prison every day and still went to bed every night with peace of mind. I recently met an old companion by chance right in front of my apartment building in Kreuzberg, and we talked about “the three” from K.O.M.I.T.E.E., about old connections that were cut off because of the escape, about the twisted paths that some of the old companions used to keep in touch with the comrades over the years. There is still much that cannot be told publicly, even if it seems that the efforts of the German judiciary to get hold of the three do not seem to be crowned with success at the moment. A few months ago, the initiative “Bring The Boys Back Home” was even born, with the aim of enabling the three to return to Germany legally.
