"Text for Anarchists Against The Wall - thanks! from FdCa"

Dear comrades,

The Federation of Anarchist Communists (FdCA) in Italy sends you its warmest greetings and best wishes for the success of your initiative.

The FdCA is a federation of militants and has been active since 1986 when it was formed from the union of several existing groups. Although we are a relatively small organization, our members share a solid theoretical base which is the continuation of the class-struggle anarchism which has existed in Italy since the 19th century, a tradition which we are happy to carry on. We are active in many struggles, for example anti-militarism, anti-sexism and, most importantly for our anti-capitalism, the labour movement.

We have closely followed the activities of the "Anarchists Against the Wall" initiative since its beginnings and are happy to note the success it has enjoyed in bringing practical anarchism to the public eye through its non-violent actions and close, non-authoritarian co-operation with the Palestinian inhabitants of the occupied areas.

As we believe the example you provide can be a valuable lesson to others (and not only anarchists), and as the importance of your struggle deserves the maximum exposure possible, we have dedicated a part of our federation's website to your activities (www.fdca.it/wall). Though you have been successful in obtaining a certain amount of public attention in your country through the media, the Apartheid Wall is still sadly ignored by large areas of the Western media, and we hope that, in Italy at least, our website on the Anarchists Against the Wall can help to focus more attention on the struggle.

We were also interested to note the initiative which has been made among you with this meeting to try to co-ordinate better your movement. We welcome any move towards greater anti-authoritarian organization of social forces and therefore we wish you luck in your work.

Long live anarchist communism!

In solidarity,

Nestor McNab
