Spain: Monica and Francisco, comrades processed in Chilean Bombs Case, now charged in Mateo Morral Command Attacks

At 3 am on Wednesday November 13, 2013 Spanish police raided the home where Monica and Francisco lived, in addition to detein other 3 housemates.

The police, prosecutor, mass media and Homneland Ministers (both Chilean as Spanish) state that both partners have placed a bomb in the Basilic of Pilar, action vindicated by the "Mateo Morral Insurrectionary Command" on October 2, 2013 in Zaragoza, Spain.

To recall that both partners were prosecuted, imprisoned and faced one of the longest trials in Chilean procedural history in the "Bombs Case". Charged under anti-terrorism law for the crimes of terrorist conspiracy and explosive placement remained about nine months in maximum security prisons of the Chilean state, after being acquitted of conspiracy faced trial along with the other 3 partners for various crimes (terrorist artifact placement and terrorist financing) to finally be acquitted.

According to the information we have, both comrades will be in police custody until Friday 15 where they should declare before the judge of the National Audience (in charge of terrorism cases) Eloy Velasco, for offenses under Article 570 of the Criminal Code, anti-terrorism legislation with 15-20 years sentence.

Later that November 15 will be seen if the judge accepted the request for remand for both comrades. In parallel, different characters (each one more dire and sinister) take turns giving statement, celebrating the arrest and threatening to reopen the "Bombs Case" process.

From here we will transform these kilometers away in an insignificant obstacle, silence the voicesof  the masters that resonate from the two countries, we will walk ignoring the threats of decades and decades in prison for a hug of solidarity that is based far from the crackdowns ...


Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar : a la kalle !

Anarchist and antifascist sabotage Falange anniversary act in Madrid: No pasarán!

The Falange intended to carry out in the theater Figaro, next to the Plaza de Tirso de Molina, Madrid,  the celebration of its 80 year taint with the bloody history of hundreds of thousands people killed. Finally, and although Figaro Theatre managers tried to justify the presence of fascists in their space, the pressure exerted paid off, and the fascists had to pass on the sly the ceremony to TRYP Resort in Atocha Street.

The response of anarchists and other anti-fascists individuals was organized as fast as we could, due to the uncertainty throughout this week about the venue of the event. The night before the ceremony, Madrid Libertarian Youths drafted a rejection statement calling the fight against fascism in all its forms, stressing the need to fight also against capitalism and the state as institutions of which fascism is served to strengthen. Figaro theater nearby woke posters full of this statement and several painted showing the fascists were not welcome in our neighbourhood. The text, made ​​it clear that we can not forget that fascism has a role pressuring the State authorities to deepen racist and xenophobic policies, already inherent in any form of state. Fascism is and will always be a resource use by the ruling class to remain the power, either making use of fascism to stop the revolutionary forces, or showing the democratic dominance as submitting system necessary to contain totalitarianism.

Police protected at all times the hotel and its surroundings, identifying and retaining some anarchist and anti-fascist groups who tried to prevent the holding of the of praising fascist act.

Serve also this statement to warn those assisting the fascists and helping spread his message of racial hatred, authoritarian, sexist, homophobic, providing spaces are considered in the same ilk as these lunatics. Will face the consequences.



Statement stuck in the vicinity of Figaro Theatre:
80 years ago, the Falange fascist organization was founded in Madrid. The party, which developed his political theory around the national-unionist, soon showed its oppressive reactionary outlook. Its members served as vigilant shock troop against the revolutionary workers' movement in the 30's in Spain. There were many clashes that the working class hold with fascism while also beating against the bourgeoisie and the Republican state, which from its inception was another attempt to settle exploitation disguised as liberal regime.
What happened then, is well known. Falange was used as political channel for Catholic Church, bourgeoisie and the military in an attempt to shackle the working people by the year 36, after the clear signs of be able to definitely overcome the bourgeois order that kept them under the yoke of exploitation and oppression. Was thus, bourgeoisie who raised Spanish fascism, phalangism, and used it to plan a genocide and extermination of hundreds of thousands of workers, anarchists and other political forces, with the help of Italian Fascism and German Nazism .
The huge work of revolutionary transformation that took place in vast areas of Spain, where from July 19, 1936 was able to halt the military and fascists, was first betrayed by Republican leaders and left-wing bourgeois parties (beginning a violent persecution of anarchist militants and other workers who also saw the need for a social revolution to stop fascism), and was finally destroyed with the triumph of the fascist side in the contest. More than 40 years of death, exile and imprisonment would expect to hundreds of thousands of people, that never stop being a nuisance to the Franco regime and its pet-party: The Falange.
80 years later we have a "democratic" regime that continues with the exploitation and domination as in the so-called dictatorship, but with subtle forms.
Leveraging the context of capitalist crisis, fascism tries to rise and anchor its racist, homophobic and reactionary on society. While various States of the European Union exercised evident persecution to workers because of their skin color or origin, the old fascism tries to take its place.
Acts like the Falange 80th anniversary commemorating, in a working class neighborhood as Lavapies, and in presence of many workers from around the world, show that fascism tries again to take a place with the clear complicity of judges, police and entrepreneurs. Democracy and fascism are two sides of the same coin, different ways of practicing racism and dominion over people, but aim to keep the same capitalist system that engenders. State and Capital found in fascism and its racial hate messages a vigilante-killing force to strengthen both in the streets and at the level of discourse .

Violence broke out between police and demonstrators in Rome on Saturday as tens of thousands took to the streets to protest Italy’s new budget.
Fifteen protesters were arrested and at least 20 police officers were injured, according to the Corriere della Sera newspaper. 
We are laying siege to the city!” chanted the crowd, as a small minority pelted the police and government buildings with water bottles and eggs. 
A group of protesters turned over garbage bins and set some of them on fire in front of the Economy Ministry.

Police say they confiscated tear gas canisters and rocks from some of the radicals in the predominantly youthful crowd and found chains stashed away along the route of the march.

Organizers estimated that 70,000 people took part in the protest, while authorities placed the number closer to 50,000.

With this budget the government is continuing to hurt a country which is already on its knees,” said Piero Bernocchi, leader of the left-wing COBAS trade union that was behind the demonstration. 
“Even after austerity has proven to be disastrous, with debt rising, the economy crumbling, and unemployment soaring, they still continue with these policies.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Enrico Letta - who is presiding over a fractious Left-Right coalition - presented the 2014 budget that immediately came under a firestorm of criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

Left-wingers criticized the document for freezing state sector pay and pensions, while right-wingers and businesses said it failed to stimulate growth with insufficient cuts to Italy’s oppressive corporate taxes.

Italy annually spends around 800 billion euro – a sum it cannot afford as it struggles with a recession that started more than two years ago. The latest budget aims to cut the deficit to 2.5 percent – still worse than most of Europe.

On Friday, a general strike paralyzed transport links in the country and forced the cancellation of flights in and out of Rome.

But Saturday’s protests weren’t just about pay. Some called for the government to abandon an expensive fast-train link with France. Others demanded that Italy provide more social housing. Many bemoaned the country’s treatment of immigrants, who have suffered several tragic incidents in recent months as they attempted to reach the coast of Italy.

Letta has gone on television to defend his government, but dissenters have not been placated and say that even bigger demonstrations will be staged next week.

Noelia Cotela Riveiro letter, Kidnapped in state killing centers in Spain

Posted by boletintokata on October 8, 2013

First it is remarkable to say that unfortunately I'm not "a tortured prisoner" I am "another tortured prisoner" in this supposedly rule of law and democratic country. From the dungeon where I am, in an isolation bunker, where I have spent six years locked up by the only fact of rebelling against the injustices and atrocities that the executioners make us here within to the ones with courage enough to reclaim, to uprise and make them hardly earn the bread they receive from the state for mistreating, violate our rights, physically and mentally torturing, or even killing with complete impunity.

Using the abstract term of "reinsertion" State keeps me 23 hours a day locked in a dungeon of three meters square. Having to go to a cage-like courtyard where barely get sun and, of course only because the outlawed FIES regime remains [Special Chase Inner Files, forbidden prisoner classification still in use in Spain]. Scattered from my family , my land and far away from my loved ones. This is the prison underworld of which no one speaks for fear of not being believed.

Doing a quick review of my stay in these killing centers I want to relate my passing through, and public denounce the facts that happens, here. C. P. Brieva Prison: the jail where reigns the inmates submission and prevails the word of the executioners. In this prison I have been tortured, have break me a wrist bone which took 30 days plaster, fruit of the usual daily beatings. It keeps me totally incommunicated (phone, parlor, meetings, and mail) as usual, even jailers reporting my mother in order to maintain my isolation. I have been handcuffed, mechanical restraint and stranded many times, after being tortured, and the night of 23th October 2012, after being handcuffed, I woke up to feel the hands of a state servant touching my body. How nobody do nothing? Because this rotten oppressive system encourages the perpetrators enjoy impunity. I'm still alive, but many brothers and comrades have been cruelly killed when "theoretically " serving sentences. Induction to suicide by restraining the oppressive jail regime; aggressions out of hand that kill us (after we appear hanged as if suicide) adulterous methadone to nullify (and clean way to kill us, "overdose"), humiliation, vexes and even vegan comrades die in prison for deny applying the "Terminal Illness patient release" Art.

C. P. Brieva , CP Picassent , C. P. Albolote ... death camps and slaughterhouses of the State. We are 75,000 prisoners in Spain, with too much pain, torture and suffering (as prisoners as relatives). so I want to call the bonds of solidarity that unite to urge and fight for the abolition of torture, the abolition of prisons and the FIES regime, and for anyone else have to live these experiences that marks for life. Let us join voices and fists in live or death to fight for our rights and our freedom.

CNT-AIT International Call: 1st October day of action against Santander bank worldwide. Stop spoil! Stop slavery!

CNT-AIT International call: October 1st day of action against Banco Santander worldwide
Unions from Regional Centro Federation of the CNT-AIT have organized several protests Isban company, Santander Group and solidarity acts with the union conflict that began in Madrid a few weeks ago against the Isban company, Santander group.
In Isban headquarters in Boadilla del Monte, Madrid unionist have demanded the reinstatement of dismissed companion when constitute a union section and public and judicial denounce the abuses of the managers. The workplace of the represed worker in the illegal assigned company has also been decorated for the event further angering executive managers. After ordering the removal of the banner and get a negative, the steering personally undertook the requisition. 
The conflict continues to increase without the company shows signs of willingness to dialogue . After the dismissal of union delegate section Isban CNT- AIT, revolutionary unions worldwide federated in the  AIT are starting to spread the message of the workers in struggle and prepare coordinated actions.
On 1 October, the International has called for a day of action against Banco Santander worldwide.
 ISBAN: missery, slavery and fear
Isban, owned by the overpowerful Santander group property of Emilio Botin, is the umbrella company that sustain a network of "cannon fooder" provider companies that act as temporary employment agencies and set cheap and precarious labor.
More than 10,000 employees worldwide are illegally transferred to Isban, so to fire someone simply inform the temporary employment agencies on duty . No cost to the bank, of course, as according to them it is not a redundancy but a " project change" in the "fooder" company, that normally choose to dismiss the worker or transfer it to another "customer" company.
Through this practice get millionaires benefits  saving in hiring and firing, while maintaining dozens of companies under their control. All obey its guidelines as none wants to lose a "client" as profitable. Some even give up to 100 % of its employees to the bank , weaving a network of illegal subcontracting mafia.
The climate of fear and helplessness that Isban workers live is absolute , fearing homelessness to minimal protest. This facilitates the acceptance of surreal working hours, overtime and mandatory shifts, schedules and work schedule as, categories and wages below the roles played and countless more outrages.
SANTANDER GROUP: greed, corruption and spoiling
Recently there have been hundreds of irregular dismissals across the Santander group, framed in what workers have denounced as undercover Redundancy Dismissal Procedure. Computer Services offices and Santander Isban CSA Back-office ( SBGM ) staff have seen their rates reduced to 50 % in a few months. In addition, the elected workers to leave the bank have been less rentanbles and most vulnerable. The outsiders (workers illegally transferred), short-time mothers and displaced workers abroad have been the preferred targets for cuts. With the collusion of government and scab unions, massive job destruction comes out practically free for Santander group.
And all this despite the Santander Group has not only losses but made ​​a profit of € 2,255 million in the first six months of 2013, almost 30% more than in the same period of 2012. An extremely hypocritical attitude clashes with the group advertising image which boast of lifting the country thanks to the trust in people and the future. A future of millions of people led to unemployment and poverty. 
It is not the first time the tyrannical methods of the billionaire Emilio Botin are reported, but so far has not been done justice. In 2008 the Supreme Court filed by defects in the process the case against Botin and other bank executives for the irregular buying of Banesto bank. In 2012 the National Hearing filed the famous case of Swiss accounts after the Botin family disburse € 200 million to "regularize the situation."
Recently have uncovered new atrocities committed by this multinational giant as promoting subprime mortgages that caused the current economic crisis. The credit institution UCI, Santander Group , awarded for years unaffordable loans. We were not living beyond our means, the bank was mortaging above our means: to take advantage of defaults after foreclosing and evicting the most vulnerable.
It is curious that in early 2008, when the word crisis was not yet on everyone's lips, Santander sold almost all its real estate. Even the luxurious Majadahonda financial city, bank headquarters with over 160 acres of offices, hotels and even a golf camp was sold and maintained rented since then. The Botin CEOs knew what had generate and protected their interests by selling at a good price before the bubble burst.
Other liens have contributed to the growth of the assets of the business group. While the boom lasted brick, the bank provided loans to builders millionaires , some of them involved in the case of urbanism corruption Malaya case. After the fall of the construction sector, the bank foreclosed on their properties, which now are gived to the new generation family who hire their mortgages .
Other notorious case is the extortionate interest charges college students through Santander Bank accounts that are automatically engaged when enrolling in universities that have agreements with the group. Again Santander uses his position of power to bleed the people that have made ​​him a millionaire .
In this anti-workers policy, Santander interests collide now with equals organized workers . The dismissal of the delegate of the National Confederation of Workers CNT at Isban has triggered the rapid escalation of the conflict, because the violation of freedom will not be tolerated here or any where.
The whole world will learn about the Botin family 's dirty laundry and Santander Grupo. We never gave up and they will not get shut up with their bribes and their repression .

Russian cells of CCF and ELF carry out a coordinated attack on highway construction site in Moscow

Two Moscow cells of ecoanarchists carried out a coordinated attack on highway construction site in eastern Moscow that ended in torching of two bulldozers. The action took place on 08/09/2013. First we came upon some construction workers who were busy burning fires at their wheeled houses near the forest. So initially we were tempted to fuck them up and torch their houses with tools and personal belongings. But turned out that our mutual desire to clean karma was stronger than inclination to spoil it, so we didn’t touch the slaves. We torched their vehicles.
As usual, we acted with impudence: we did our black deeds right in front of workers and passer-by car drivers. So we apologized to the guy who almost got into a traffic accident because flaming dozer hypnotized him so much.
We take this opportunity to remind you that roadworks at the site continue. Moscow region is teeming with projects like this one, when trees are uprooted and earth is covered in bitumen. The more roads there are – the less we got left to live. This is not okay with us. Good luck to those who are brave. Death to those who are not.

Portishead: Responsibility claim for major arson of police firearms training building and attack on security service vehicles (UK)

The (under construction) Police Firearms Training Centre in Black Rock Quarry, Portishead, situated directly beneath the Avon and Somerset Police regional headquarters was our target on the night of 26th August, and we left it with flames licking high. The facility is intended to serve forces across the South West.
After climbing into the quarry we used accelerant to burn the major electrical cables at five junction points throughout the complex, and doused and lighted a pallet of electrical fittings and wires. More than twelve hours later the fire is still burning. It put smiles on our faces to realise how easy it was to enter their gun club and leave a fuck you signature right in the belly of the beast, with a curious fox as our only witness. 

On the same night others of us attacked two vehicles near St George, Bristol with paint stripper and by slashing the tyres - one G4S and one Amey. In the UK and globally G4S provide prison and security services and profit from many aspects of prison society. Amey, in a joint venture with GEO transport prisoners in England and Wales and run courthouses in Bristol and North Somerset.

In the City around us the lock down increases; there is a general atmosphere of rising fear and powerlessness; there is more and more surveillance, and security guards with handcuffs appear on more and more doors. Tensions across the world are simmering as people lose faith in the system. As a response to this insecurity the state is militarising it's police with firearms, remote control drones and 'non-lethal' weapons that regularly kill. At the same time they develop the preventative 'soft cop' buffer of community support officers, liaison teams and so on, that are more fitting with the democratic image. They even get some help from leftists such as John Drury from Aufheben with his contributions on crowd control, who is as terrified of the unmanageable as the ruling classes are. The British state is a world leader in counter-insurgency techniques. Their expertise is the result of generations long brutal colonisation, like in India, Kenya and to this day in Ireland.

Two years after the major UK riots we think an important door was opened for radical and combative refusal of our daily existence on a wide scale. For those of us who took to the streets it was a breath of clean air in the dungeons, a reminder that the encroachment and control is not complete. Even when the apathy and isolation seems to have taken hold again we continue our attacks. The police and security industry specialise in making us feel powerless in our own lives, and making these attacks goes a long way to overcoming this feeling.

This is also our way of marking two years that Bristol anarchist Badger has evaded capture after the riots. Stay free, keep fighting!

Speaking of which, the night of our action coincides with the announced start of the planned cull of wild badgers in the South West of England. Through attempting to facilitate the cull and stop resistance the police shore up the interests of agricultural industry and the land owning classes. We hope this will be one of many rebellions against this slaughter. Because the state and corporate security forces are integral to this world of exploitation and authority.

Our best wishes to the Greek anarchist Kostas Sakkas in recovery from a successful hunger strike for pre-trial release after 30 months on remand.

The struggle will continue until all are wild and free.

Phoenix Project #5 : ‘ICR-FAI-IRF / Free Mandylas and Tsavdaridis Cell’ take responsibility for the incendiary attack against a school for police in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan (Indonesia)


We will not talk about “unfair prosecutions”, about “the climate of terror against those who fight”, nor about the “new totalitarian-ism” and things like that. That’s because we know that none of these is new. These are simply snapshots of the ancient war between two incompatible words: on the one side lies the disgusting world of the Authority, of the submissive crowd and of the social cesspit and on the other side, the anarchist insurgents, the insubordinate fighters of the Negative, those who do not bow down to nobody. We will neither talk about the others. The ones who these days feel secretly happy and relieved. Now it’s not the time nor the place to do so. They should bear in mind, however, that the time will come to talk about these things. -– Freedom To The Wolves of The North
When we said “nothing is over”, it’s not only just words. Our threats will turn into action, time by time, every second we get the chance. And every time, we will bring our actions closer to your face. Directly in front of your guns, uniforms and prison – repressive tools that are often used to kidnap our revolutionary comrades. We will never let you sleep well, because our war is not over yet.
With this letter, we take responsibility for the arson against a school of police in Sudirman St, Balikpapan, on 24 August 2013. We put the incendiary device with timer in front of that school and let the fire do the rest. We chose this target after we received news that Greek pigs invaded Steki Nadir and kidnapped two comrades because of several attacks by different cells of FAI/IRF. Our action is the direct revenge against the pigs everywhere, not only in Greece.We salute with fire our two brothers who are accused in our international project of revenge: Phoenix.
We have nothing more to say to you, because we will let the fire explain it. And for every inch in your step that invades our freedom, we will hit you back more violent than before.
This action also to salute our comrades: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire: Imprisoned Members Cell, our beloved ones Alfredo Cospito and Nicola GaiHans Niemeyer,Juan, Marcelo and Freddy, to the Kozani 4, and to the prisoners of war in Italy(from ArdireShadowThor, etc) and prisoners of war in Chile. Because every comrade is in our black hearts.
Free Mandylas and Tsavdaridis Cell

For further information, this time the police can’t say that this fire was caused by an electrical fault, as there was no electricity in the building at the time. In total, seven different classes totally burned down.

Federal Police invade the premises of the Federação Anarquista Gaúcha - FAG
On the afternoon of Wednesday, 20 June 2013, between 12 and 15 plainclothes officers dressed in black waistcoats and blazers, claiming to be from the Federal Police broke into and raided the Ateneu Batalha da Várzea, the social and political premises of the Federação Anarquista Gaúcha located on Travessa dos Venezianos, and took some of our material. The officers would not present any search and seizure warrant to standers-by who tried to find out what was happening. In addition to this, some officers, also in plainclothes, tried to take a comrade from her home this morning.
The FAG is a political organization which has existed, publicly, for 18 years. Throughout these years we have never hidden, we have always maintained our public spaces where we carry out many activities of a political and cultural nature as well as our work within the community and as part of the local and national left. The Ateneu is a space where we have carried on these activities for over 3 years, maintaining a public library and doing regular activities.

We would recall that in October 2009 we had our old headquarters, at the time located in Lopo Gonçalves, raided by the police on the orders of the then Governor Yeda Crusius as a result of a poster which she claimed - and continues to claim - we were responsible for the murder of MST activist Elthon Brum in São Gabriel. On that occasion all our material was seized, including our bins.

This time, after numerous pseudo-facts stated on RBS television, accusing us of being sociopaths and fantasizing that we were plotting together with activists from other countries, employing guerrilla tactics in the city, with the apparent motive of sowing panic, there have been calls for repression against our militancy.

Like the taunts and factoids in the reactionary press, the repression employed by the repressive apparatuses of the bourgeois State is not new to us. Since our inception as a political current, we have been the target of the repressive fury of the bosses in collusion with the State. For over a century we have resisted all these cowardly assaults, with our fists raised and our heads held high and this will not be the episode that will shake our combative militancy.

Finally, we lay full responsibility on the municipal, state and federal governments for this cowardly attack on our organization. We will not be intimidated and we will go on devoting all our efforts towards building a strong people, a combative working class that can organize the oppressed of this country and its legitimate demands.

Não passarão!
Down with the repression of those who struggle!

Call. June 21: All to the street for freedom for The Barcelona 5

June 21: All the street for freedom of Barcelona 5
On May 15 were arrested in their homes five anarchists in the province of Barcelona. His crime? Having participated in demonstrations involving in altercations and spread their ideology through Facebook groups. Therefore, they are accused of belonging to a terrorist group, praising terrorism and recruitment and indoctrination.

As proof of his guilt in these crimes, police seized material contributes in their homes: anarchists flags, libertarian philosophy books, black clothes and rockets and firecrackers that we all keep to San Juan [popular party].

Despite the nonsense involving these allegations and "evidence" to cling to, their ideology against the regime was established enough for the judge Mr Pedraz to condemn them, currently in prison Soto del Real, Navalcarnero, Aranjuez, Alcalá-Meco, in Madrid under the FIES 3 regime [penitentiary dangerousness classification system for prisoner from 0 to 5].

Their case can not be understood isolately, but as a piece in the Spanish state repression strategy that is making strides toward authoritarianism which is heir. The arrest of these five anarchists is a precedent that will be used to justify further indiscriminate persecution, something no citizen of this country should allow.

In this context we call for solidarity of all those who appreciate the injustice they have suffered these five companions, June 21 meet in the streets of our cities with banners and candles, to feel our warmth even when isolated in their cells.

We ask for spread this quote and the situation in which the 5 of Barcelona find by all means, everyone will know about the political persecution that is taking place in this country.

The Spanish Ministry of Defence refuses to declassify documents on 10,000 episodes that occurred between 1936 and 1968

Spirit of vengance is still alive in Spain after all this years of political repression. The bad called "Transición" transition, from militar dictactorship to market dictatorship with no more changes than the faces of the rulers was never completed, and the deep memory, sculpt in blood and bones, has kept despite of all efforts to delete it. Spain keeps its slave memory thanks to the whip of tyrans and oligarchs.
No mercy for losing
Panic to know the truth. Marcos Balfagón, el País.
The WarMinistry has dry braking 10,000 initiative to declassify documents relating to events that occurred between 1936 and 1968. In those papers information, for example, about the adventures that befell the military units during the Spanish Civil War or strategies of repression on Franco dictatorship. Also find helps from the Regime to the Axis Powers during the Second World War or war movements of Sidi Ifni in the late fifties. For having, there's even material covers the activities of Radio Independent Spain, The Pyrenees Radio, clandestine radio station that intended to tell what was happening in the opaque Spain of Franco and launched the Communist Party in Moscow in 1941, then moved to Bashkiria and ended settling in Romania, where worked one of the fathers of the Spanish Constitution of 1978, Jordi Solé Tura.
Better not knowing anything, not poke, not investigate, that nothing transcends or commented. To achieve bureaucratic walls are the highest authority in this matter, the Minister Pedro Morenés, who has said no. There is a law of 1968, the Official Secrets that prevents (forever) consulting such matters unless express order of the Government.
At that law must abide the Minister. Obviously, if it existed in any of these documents to the state information that would endanger or generate tensions on the international scene, to continue staying silent. But a comparison with Western countries confirms that such prevention is meaningless: British historians can know all the details of the Falklands War (1982) and a writer like Christopher Hitchens could flip through declassified documents in the United States for Trial Kissinger, a devastating review of the catalog of murders and secret plots that took place during his administration.
Nothing serious occurred in none of these cases (and many others) after lifting the secrecy, and historians did their job and the people knew what happened. Not here. Morenés should explain whether obstacles kept out of fear or ignorance. Or, perhaps, because the initiative was the previous government declassify.

Spanish State desperate for terrorists! This time the Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum. Solidarity!

ETA ended, so the State is desperate to find a replacement to justified the omnipresent repression. As it is not, needs to create. It tried with 11-M and the Yihaidism, but did not pull. It goal now is the Anarchists.
What started as a marginal news and little credit, as was the bomb by supposed fake anarchist group Mateo Morral at the Almudena Cathedral, with a guest appearance of the Prince, and the other with a vibrator pump to the bishops, takes shape. Policial set up, pure theater. Now raid the Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum.

David Piqué Deputy, State gunman gives ideas:
Even if the concentration or manifestation, which is what we speak, not expected quite violent, it can even cause a little, with little justification and no arrests peaceful few days prior to heating. We can also do preventive "raids" where people are usually close to the ideology of the organizers on the pretext of looking for drugs or whatever it takes. The "raid" will be particularly badly done and more humiliating to turn things down if necessary.
The foreseeable consequence of these behaviors before and policing device design is that end with a "battle".
 We knew it would happen, it was a matter of time.

About the "show" of the Mossos at the Ateneo this morning and some misinformation
As many know now about 9am the Mossos, Catalonian Authonomic Police, have busted door of Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum, located next to the CNT local. They searched the Atheneum, pulling several books and cabinets and have taken several computer hard disks. At 14:30 "the boys" have gone. Have arrested several people linked to various social movements in the city. The warrant of searnch that we have not seen, comes from the National Audience, Hight Court. Of the 5 detainees who they say have, one of them lived in Sabadell.

We want to clarify some misinformation that have appeared in various media:
Also note that it is curious that all mass media come to record the entire circus, when  Union has sent press releases to many of them; on the 2 processed by the events of the General Strike of 29-M denounced by the Central Market, the dispute and the strike in Residence Nunnery, the dismissal of the CEO of Yamaha, etc, and never have deigned to publish anything (except some like This shows that what matters is the lewd and circus "anarchist terrorism" that conflicts and daily activity that has this Union and the Athenaeum to transform society.

Surely now that there is no ETA terrorism, must point toward other groups that seek to end capitalism or at least improve the current situation to keep entertaining people and spread fear among those struggling, now plays the anarchists , recently were the scratch of PAH.

We do not know if the supposed Black Flag Anarchist Group was or not, and we don't care. Waiting to know who are all those detained and exactly what they are accused, the Sabadell CNT will always be with all those who struggle to transform society.

Let them know rulers, prosecutors, repressive forces, akin to the power press, etc that we will not stop fighting for a world more just, more equal, more free.

Also thank all the people who have come to leaning, people from different groups other than those that form the Ateneo and the CNT, CGT, MPS, Co.bas, etc..

Today and surely also face more serious than the record in the Ateneo, have vacated the farmhouse Can self-managed Piella:

Health and Anarchy!

New wave of repression against the anarchist movement, this time the Llibertari Ateneo de Sabadell. Solidarity!
We reiterate: Call to unit at 18 hours before the Sabadell City Council to demand the release of detainees and reject Anarchist repression and criminalization of social movements!

Fraudulent policial search is Sabadell Libertarian Ateneum 
The same day that the "very honorable" corp of the Autonomous police efforts to evict Can  Piella a Wednesday May 15, 2013, did not have anything better to do than go without a warrant to local Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum.

No one yet knows the motives of this illegal search, only told that the order is dictated by the Audiencia Nacional [hight court].

The Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum local,  property of the town CNT , is an historical space open to all working people of Sabadell, where many groups and people from Sabadell and elsewhere have made recreational tasks , cultural and social for years. The same group of Libertarian Athenium assembly , Local 15-M people, Amazighité or local coordinators, and many others, have made use of this space. Therefore, we do not understand these corps seeking this open space use in a city, so devoid of spaces as it turns out Sabadell, known for alleged corrupt affairs former Mayor Manuel Bustos, reactionary traders (as those who have opened the Central Market in episodes of general strikes), and certain bunch of"carcatholic" in certain areas. Metaphorically, to one side of the City Hall of Sabadell we found a historic headquarters of Sabadell Bank, in the other a rather large church, and if we look out the back door of the town hall will see another church with a statue in the fundamentalist carcatholic Sarda i Salvany!

Sabadell libertarian movement, from its origins in the nineteenth century to the present day, has always stood for the struggle for a better world, something that is still valid today, especially in times of social cuts and casualization of our lives. What unemployed youth with no future, conscious workers, migrants, idealistic or pragmatic and other people organize and fight for their ideals is no reason for a serch.

The underlying reason for these people under orders from Madrid is simply to terrorize the people involved and dedicates part of his time to say NO to all these abuses we suffer as a class, those disinherited of the material benefits of the Capitalist System , and also, in modern times, we have years of suffering the consequences of a crisis caused by the psychopathic vanity of a system, such as liberal democracy, based on profit and economic predation.

The seach is started without warning to any person from the property of the building, there was no court order as a first person has approached the scene to request information and documentation, then have proceeded to seal the premises of the Sabadell Libertarian Atheneum . For now, therefore, and considering the long criminal history of the Mossos [authonomic police] (beatings in police stations, alleged lost eye by rubber bullets, pardoned by ill-treatment, including a vast etc.), anything can be expected from this act, under my view, not quite legal ...

Right now a group of solidary people are concentrated in the vicinity of local Ricetti Edgardo Passage, waiting for the presence of a court clerk and a search warrant ...
