Soilidarity with Alfon, only arrested remaining in jail after the paneuropean strike on 14-N: new spanish political prisioner

Spain kingdom of satrapas, thieves and butchers. The number of political prisioner rise in europe. After the first paneuropean strike on 14-N there is still one person in jail. It is not a coincidence, as Alfonso Fernandez, Alfon, as his mother, are well know as activist. His detention was not fortuite, 100m from his home door, acompanied by his girlfriend. Hours of policial interrogatories every two hours, tortures and death threats made by hood terrorist. An as always Policial set [policial manipulation] and political interest. The govertment can't break his decision to fight, neither of his family.
This case looks similar to Alessio del Sordo case in itali, also victim of the state terrorism.
Alfonso Fernández Ortega, Alfonso, a 21-year-old neighbor of Vallecas in Madrid, left his home early on Wednesday November 14. There was one morning but that of 14N, day of the general strike. He was addressing to an informational picket, accompanied by his girlfriend. He planned to meet at a time with his mother and his uncle, that also support the strike actively. But Elena Ortega, the mother, could not locate him: a hundred yards from his house, Alfonso and his girlfriend were arrested . She was released with charges and must appear in court twice a month. Alfon spent in pretrial detention and meets in Soto del Real prison [Madrid] in what can be considered a penalty early to the sentence.
Preventive detention is a precautionary measure applied in cases that produce great social alarm. It's what the judge argued to send Alfon to prison, although it seems more alarm caused his arrest, and even what seems to be pursuing this case. Many accuse him of mounting police, allegedly to divert attention from the success of the general strike in Vallecas, where the closure of small businesses reached almost 100%.
Police said Alfon carrying a bag with gasoline at the time of his arrest, he denies end: "I'm calm because I have not done anything, I know I'm a scapegoat, that the purpose of the police was another and have used me for it. " He has told to his mother in one of the few visits that have allowed in jail. An arrest that seems not be fortuitous as Elena Ortega is a well-known activist in Vallecas neighborhood.
In an interview with the program Todo por la Causua [all for the cause] of Tele K, Vallecas local television, she says her son and his girlfriend refused to testify without counsel present and therefore suffered psychological torture: they were interrogated every two hours by hooded men threatened them doing "horrible things" to their families. As any statement failed, police decided to search at home. Elena realize that when five hooded policemen also appeared at dawn at home, trying to frighten she and her husband, also threatening them with what would happen to his son. She was adamant: "It is clear that we are leftists. Here are my republican flag, my shirt from the public school, the kind of books I have. But we are not terrorists. "
A Alfon has been applied F.I.E.S. Regime (Jail internal files and tratments), which involves isolation (called "prison within the prison"), restricts communications (can only receive a visit from his family) and controls its correspondence. It applies to the prison system inmates considered "dangerous", usually people belonging to armed gangs or drug lords. The High Court itself considers FIES illegal, violate the rights of prisoners and competencies overdo regulations. That has been applied to Alfon go on the same line of their detention: the criminalization of youth organized, critical and demanding through a nearby young antifascist groups and fan Rayo Vallecano Football Club. Bukaneros headquarters, supporters of this team declaring "racism, repression and football business", was also under policial search.
According to Elena Ortega and Bukaneros, which later issued a statement, the Ministry of Interior and the Government Office will undergo unprecedented persecution from 25-S because banners denouncing parties take, for example, that the Congress of the Deputies were surrounded by 1,500 police while Cristina Cifuentes's husband is "whereabouts unknown." Also reported that the arrest and imprisonment of Alfon delivery may be a smokescreen to divert attention from the historical manifestations of 14N and charges "disproportionate and inhumane" of the security forces.
Alfon's mother, who took her story to the International Congress Against Repression, organized by Animal Equality and held with great success in Madrid on 6 and 7 December, insists that government want to criminalize young people and working class neighborhoods shaken by the crisis, as Vallecas, Villaverde or Carabanchel neighbordhoods. He complains that are young wich have to deal with a system that denies them the future, kids who have had to leave the university because they can not pay and even vocational training after the rate hike, kids for whom there is no provision either they can enter the labor market. "A youth," he says, "no expectations, cornered, harassed and persecuted by the police."
She resists "the force of reason and truth" because Vallecas known since he was a handful of shacks and knows is the fight what can organize neighborhood. So warns that the mothers of these young people are reaching a limit: "We have given birth with love, have grown up with love and with great respect, and now are suffering thrashing, abuse and expoil. We will begin to react because we are not willing to allow  wrecking uor sons. "
Part of the process of destruction is the preventive detention. If a detainee is unprecedented and has a known address, should not go to prison. Nor if no flight risk or can be controlled by imposing a proportional bail. The opposite is to create a prisoner. In this case, for ideological reasons, is a political prisoner. As political as a general strike.

Sabotage: How to sabotage INDITEX, Biggest textile multinational in the world

BERSKA is missing covered by the skull

Why sabotage Inditex?
  The reasons are well known, such as working conditions similar to slavery in the sub-subcontractors in developing countries, voluntary redundancy for most senior staff or overloaded slave work for staff ...
  The result of this explotation is evident in the middle of the global crisis. In example Inditex [world first multinational textil group] has dropped 4% sales in Spain an other european countries, but increasing group profits in 22%. This is by selling in the Asian market, to a greater extent, and in the American, the total turnover of the group reached up to 17% compared to same comparative period of 2011.
    Amancio Ortega [Owner of the hole group] has become this November the second richest man in the world, Inditex knows no crisis but yes the employees: not hired enough staff, exploits existing one and who does not accept the rules it is fired. It's time to strike back.

Small actions imports:
 Here some actions we can take to stop or slow the sale in stores in the group, depending on the choice we will get a more or less long term. Small looses are big problems for the company.

1) Breaking Security Archs:
Each store has security arches, depending on the size of the store and the number of entrances there. We will find: metal detecting devices, anti bunker bags (bags filled  with foil aluminium paper) and alarms.
The company in charge of maintaining the arches takes time to repair and even more if have to replace, and depending on which city has produced such failure or breakage, so at least a couple of days the clothes with alarm output can be undetected. Considering that security personnel in retail stores it is not present in full time, certain number of people in small towns for example could find out what is the best time to go. In these shops in the morning often lack security. Always check the state of the exit arc by nearing "distractely" an alarmed cloth to see if the security system is really broken.

2) Spray in action: Quick and easy.
With a command of four or five people: two or three diversion safety employees, throwing dummies, noising. vandalized entry, etc.. while the remaining peers, one for each side of the store are arranged to spray the choths on the walls. Each tent has walls and tables, the tables do not interest us [cheap good]. The small furniture are not of interest because they don't involve large amounts of money to the company and are more easily spare, so we focus on the walls.
The walls are the target of the spray, we just need to go running around and creating a continuous line around the walls clothing and general store.
The damage from this action is important, talking about spoiling all the product displayed, becouse they remove the painting clohts from the sale at minimum damage. [They will close the store].
If the store is small it is sure they do not have either to replenish merchandise in the store.
This is surely one of the great - small actions, with little done maximun damage.

3) Broken windows:
A classic. The big crystals take days to relocate once requewsted. Meanwhale they usually clouse the shop.

Inditex Window Dresser Service outsourced to the company, so will have to make an extra outlay when the damages remedy. It can take days if produced by several shops, as the team has to move.

4) Break cash register:
Each store has some counters and these in turn with "x" cash register with touch screens, without which no one could keep the store running. The more cash register broken less profit for the company, if the operation paralyzed them closed shop.

Actions should also be done from within: internal sabotage
For all those people who are working for the Inditex group, you know better than anyone how much is achieved with little, are those who best know the operation and therefore how you can get to help the cause without being discovered, some of ideas are these:

- Turning off the security system of the entries:
The day of the strike, or every other day. A reasonable minimum of time, small spaces etc just moments. This is undetectable and allow increased thefts.

- Unconfiguring security systems:
As it was a power surge, security systems, ie alarms, are unconfigured if you lower the tab in the control panel and re-upload. This repeated quickly, system unconfigured just go crazy making and sound without having to do or not to do when you need to. It also undetectable. The result is that systems should be put on hold for review, increasing thefts.
