Drawing by Emily A portrait of Errico Malatesta by Emily

Revolution is the creation of new living institutions, new groupings, new social relationships; it is the destruction of privileges and monopolies; it is the new spirit of justice, of brotherhood, of freedom which must renew the whole of social life, raise the moral level and the material conditions of the masses by calling on them to provide, through their direct and conscientious action, for their own futures.
Revolution is the organization of all public services by those who work in them in their own interest as well as the public’s;
Revolution is the destruction of all coercive ties; it is the autonomy of groups, of communes, of regions;
Revolution is the free federation brought about by desire for brotherhood, by individual and collective interests, by the needs of production and defense;
Revolution is the constitution of innumerable free groupings based on ideas, wishes, and tastes of all kinds that exist among the people;
Revolution is the forming and disbanding of thousands of representative, district, communal, regional, national bodies which, without having any legislative power, serve to make known and to coordinate the desires and interests of people near and far and which act through information, advice and example.

-Errico Malatesta
