Monkeywrenching - Bz Akira Santjago

ho visto il ragazzo del cipresso numero 9 a Varese, protestare in cima a un albero dei giardini estensi legato a un tronco giorno e notte contro l'abbattimento dei cipressi della California; eco-guerrieri lanciare di notte bombe di sementi biologiche no-ogm per risvegliare la Vita in deserti di cemento; sabotatori senza volto manomettere le macchine dai denti di ferro delle avide Multinazionali, ho visto il Monkeywrenching;

The Monkeywrenchers engage in industrial sabotage in order to defend a land they love against industrial terrorism. Monkeywrenching is a form of sabotage that focuses on creating serious economic damage, thus putting a temporary or permanent halt to activities that the perpetrator believes are undesirable.

Monkeywrenching is nonviolent resistance to the destruction of natural diversity and wilderness. It is never directed against human beings or other forms of life. It is aimed at inanimate machines and tools that are destroying life.

Monkeywrenching is not organized. There should be no central direction or organization to monkeywrenching. Monkeywrenching is done by individuals or very small groups of people who have known each other for years. They ask themselves what is the most vulnerable point of a wilderness-destroying project, and strike there. Senseless vandalism leads to loss of popular sympathy...

Monkeywrenchers — although nonviolent — are warriors. They are exposing themselves to possible arrest or injury. It is not a casual or flippant affair. They keep a pure heart and mind about it. They remember that they are engaged in the most moral of all actions: protecting life, defending Earth.

A type of most oftenly illegal sabotage for the means of slowing down, or making it counter effective to continue with a certain activity. Or simply to spread chaos.

Monkeywrenching: Ecotage, ecodefense, billboard bandits, desurveying, road reclamation, tree spiking, even fire. All of these terms describe the unlawful sabotage of industrial extraction and development equipment, as a means of striking at the Earth’s destroyers where they commit their crimes and hitting them where they feel it most—in their profit margins.

Monkeywrenching is a step beyond civil disobedience. It is nonviolent, aimed only at inanimate objects. It is one of the last steps in defense of the wild, a deliberate action taken by an Earth defender when almost all other measures have failed.

Monkeywrenching is not mindless—targets are carefully picked for their strategic value
There is a time and a place for everything. Knowing when not to engage in sabotage is equally of value
