“In prisons the individual is crushed in the depths of her/his essence”

 

Today anarchism is a major concern in terms of security for many Western (and some Eastern) states; in this witch hunt informal antiauthoritarian anything goes, this repressive hysteria is inherent in our quest for total freedom, is as old as the anarchist ideas. So all who attempt to confront or question the prevailing order must expect a momentary or prolonged visit at one of these monuments of human extermination.

In my case passing time in a cage is nothing new. If you decide to fight the established order then punishment is one of its consequences, this approach goes far beyond the Democratic vision of Innocent / Guilty, which has no place for someone like me who wants to destroy the world that is founded on their  laws.  I do not recognize any judge, the Law makes me a slave, its Justice leaves me a prisoner.

Inside prisons the  garbage of society comes out. Here inside the individual is crushed in the depths of its essence, blackmail and manipulation by the tentacles of power are mixed and transformed as social reintegration policy. Given this policy just maintaining coherence is my victory, staying incorruptible and decent is the daily fight.

This political-legal-policing process that has been first against a group of comrades and finally has taken my beloved companion and I. Those in power have used devices and tricks, some bordering on the ridiculous, but those who are sucked into this system and trying to perpetuate it will never understand our ways.

Ways to break the hierarchy, not receiving orders from anyone, we grow and multiply like weeds in their quiet and sterile garden. The set of anarchist ideas are developed on the complexity of individual integrity, this free individual, associated with others, will finish this rotten society

 

.francisco-and-monica

The shapes and the ways in which individuals face the domain are many and have no limits, neither is better or worse, they are just different. No anarchist deemed as such can impose what to do on anyone much less allow any form of compulsion.

Along the path of anarchist  construction-destruction  we don`t need (or want) any manual or itinerary, we build the way in our daily lives. For those who believe that antiauthoritarians strictly follow the tenets of some guru, I tell them they have not understood anything.

While there have been throughout history  (and there still are) many valuable colleagues in the struggle against authority who have made great contributions, it does not mean that we surrender to any kind of cult.

Dearest  comrades I would love to dedicate words more often, but with these limitations I do not know if I can communicate in this way again.

Within a few months the trial will be upon us, I’ll try and rise to the occasion, and I’ll never bow my head
Send a fraternal hug to those who have supported us, every gesture of solidarity illuminates the shadows of these cold walls.

To all the subversive political prisoners in Chilean prisons:  my thoughts are always with you, though I’m very far away I’m thinking of you…to all you freely chosen sisters and brothers.. lets hope our paths will soon cross.

An open hand to the comrade.. a closed fist to the enemy!

Mónica Caballero (25 ), known as La Moniquita, and Francisco Javier Solar (34) (El Cariñoso) have been charged with a spectacular bombing, without victims  in Zaragoza Cathedral, which was claimed by the ‘ Insurrectional Commando Mateo Morrall’ correctly calling the building a ‘symbol of fascism’ as the church collaborated in every way sending tens of thousands oif innocent people to a terrible death and kidnapping  and selling their children.

The  couple were previously accused of a series of bombings in Chile, Francisco, an anarchist  and once a famous tennis player was accused of 3 bombings, the Agencia Nacional de Inteligencia, the company  Chilectra, and the State Defense Counsel,  while Mónica, an okupa, was arrested in the squatcenter La Crota de Santiago and accused of writing a bomb making manual, and later of planting an incendiary device.

Both were eventually found innocent in Chile, after a great support campaign, and came to Barcelona to start a new life, to study and hopefully start a veggy restaurant, before being accused of the Comando Mateo Morral attacks.

They are also accused of an attack on a Madrid church, La Almudena. Strangely the name Comando Mateo Morrall refers to a ‘propaganda of the deed’  anarchist who tried to murder Alfonso XIII,  the great grandfather of the present king of Spain on his wedding day, in 1909, by that same Almudena church.

Mónica Caballero Sepúlveda Prisionera Política Anarquista C.P. Ávila,

entro de algunos meses se realizará el juicio contra nosotros, para ese momento intentaré mantenerme a la altura de las circunstancias, jamás agacharé la cabeza.
Escrito de Mónica Caballero desde la prisión de Ávila

Envío un abrazo fraterno a quienes se han solidarizado con nosotros, cada gesto solidario ilumina las sombras de estas frías paredes.

“En las cárceles se machaca al individuo en lo más profundo de su esencia”
Publicado el 22 octubre, 2014 por fesoria
Escrito de Mónica Caballero desde la prisión de Ávila

“En las cárceles se machaca al individuo en lo más profundo de su esencia”
“En manos del Estado la fuerza se llama Derecho, en manos del individuo recibirá el nombre de crimen. Crimen significa el empleo de la fuerza por el individuo; sólo por el crimen puede el individuo destruir el poder del Estado, cuando considere que está por encima del Estado y no el Estado por encima de él.

Max Stirner

En estas fechas, cuando casi se cumplen 10 meses desde que estoy en prisión en las cárceles del Estado español, me es necesario entregarles estas palabras a ustedes queridos/as compañeros/as que luchan por la abolición de toda autoridad y el desarrollo integral de cada individuo.

Hoy el anarquismo es una de las mayores preocupaciones a nivel de seguridad para muchos Estados occidentales (y algunos orientales); en esta caza de brujas de antiautoritarios informales todo vale, esta histeria represiva es inherente a la conquista de la liberación total, es tan antigua como las ideas ácratas. Por lo que a todo quien intente enfrentarse o simplemente cuestionar el orden imperante le espera una visita momentánea o prolongada en alguno de los apacibles monumentos del exterminio humano.

En mi caso el pasar por alguna jaula no es nuevo. En cuanto te decides a luchar contra lo establecido el castigo es una de sus consecuencias, esta postura va mucho más allá de la visión demócrata de Inocente/Culpable, la cual no tiene sitio en alguien que quiere destruir este mundo que se cimienta en leyes en las cuales no creo. No reconozco juez alguno, su derecho me transforma en esclava, su justicia me vuelve prisionera.

En el interior de las prisiones salen a relucir la mayor basura de la sociedad. Aquí dentro se machaca al individuo en lo más profundo de su esencia, el chantaje y manipulación por parte de los tentáculos del Poder se mezcla y transforma como política de reinserción social. Ante esta política la coherencia es mi victoria, mantenerme incorruptible y digna es la pelea diaria.

En este proceso político-jurídico-policial que se ha llevado en un principio contra un grupo de compañerxs y por último ha decantado en mi amado compañero y yo, los aparatos del Poder han usado las más diversas artimañas, algunas bordean el ridículo, pero quienes han mamado de este Sistema e intentan perpetuarlo jamás comprenderán nuestras formas. Formas que rompen la jerarquía, que no reciben órdenes de nadie, que crecen y se multiplican como la maleza en su tranquilo y estéril jardín. El conjunto de ideas anarquistas se desarrollan en la complejidad de la integridad individual, este individuo libre asociado con otros individuos acaban con esta podrida sociedad.

Las formas y los modos en que los individuos se enfrentan al dominio son múltiples y no tienen límites, ninguno es mejor ni peor, sólo son distintos. Ningún ácrata que se considere como tal puede imponer el qué hacer a nadie y mucho menos permitir algún tipo de imposición.

En el camino de construcción-destrucción anarquista no poseemos (ni queremos) ningún tipo de manual o itinerario, lo construimos en el día a día con nuestros afines. Para quienes creen que lxs antiautoritarixs seguimos a rajatabla los postulados de algún compañero “renombrado”, les digo que no han entendido nada.

Si bien a lo largo de la historia en la lucha contra la autoridad han habido (y hay) muchísimos valiosos compañeros y compañeras que han hecho grandes aportes, eso no quiere decir que rindamos algún tipo de culto a alguno.

Queridxs compañerxs me encantaría dedicarles palabras en más ocasiones, pero ante las limitaciones en que me encuentro no tengo la certeza si podré comunicarme de esta forma nuevamente.

Dentro de algunos meses se realizará el juicio contra nosotros, para ese momento intentaré mantenerme a la altura de las circunstancias, jamás agacharé la cabeza.

Envío un abrazo fraterno a quienes se han solidarizado con nosotros, cada gesto solidario ilumina las sombras de estas frías paredes.

A los prisioneros políticos subversivos que se encuentran en las cárceles del Estado chileno: siempre están presentes en mis pensamientos, aunque me encuentre lejos, estoy con ustedes. Y a ustedes hermanos y hermanas libremente escogidos, pronto volveremos a cruzar nuestras miradas.

¡Mano abierta al compañero, puño cerrado al enemigo!

¡¡Muerte al Estado y viva la anarquía!!

5 Reasons to Never Let Your Kids Eat McDonald’s

Hold on to your hats, parents: A court-appointed psychologist recently called a Manhattan father an ‘unfit parent’ because he denied his son’s request to eat at McDonald’s. Yes, you’re reading that right.

The man is in the midst of a custody battle with his estranged wife, and the issue came up during a visit. The father and son planned to eat at their usual restaurant during their weekly Tuesday night visitation. Instead, the kid threw a temper tantrum and demanded McDonald’s. The dad stood firm, saying choose another restaurant or go without dinner (an age-old parenting tactic). The kid chose nothing. End of story, right? Wrong.

Of course, the kid told his mom. Mom told the court-appointed psychiatrist Marilyn Schiller. Schiller immediately filed a report saying the father was “wholly incapable of taking care of his son” and should be denied his weekend visitation rights. The mom, smugly I imagine, immediately took the kid to McDonald’s.

There are many things that infuriate me about this tale, but let’s focus on the big one: This Dad, in his desire to avoid rewarding bad behavior, was doing his son an enormous favor–one that few parents take the time to make, which is why we have a childhood obesity epidemic on our hands.

I, for one, applaud this guy’s actions and am glad to hear that NY Attorney David Schorr slapped the court-appointed shrink with a defamation lawsuit. In my opinion, it’s parents who encourage their kids to eat McDonald’s that are the unfit ones. Harsh? Maybe you won’t think so after reading this list:

5 Reasons to Never Let Your Kids Eat McDonalds

kids mcdonald's fast food

1. Its a lie.

McDonald’s, really fast-food in general, isn’t real food. The “nugget” isn’t a part of the chicken’s anatomy, real ribs have bones (I’m looking at you McRib), and, most importantly, real food rots. Check out this McDonald’s hamburger from 1999. Yes, it’s been sitting on a shelf for 14 years. There’s not a spot of mold or a single maggot. If nature’s natural composters don’t recognize it as food, neither should you. If you feed your kids McDonald’s, you forever alter their concept of what real food looks, feels and tastes like.

mc donald's

2. Its heinously unhealthy.

There are few things that derail your health like fast-food. The average McDonald’s meal contains so much sodium, unhealthy fat, sugar and empty carbs, it’s staggering. It is the exact opposite of what any doctor or nutritionist (even the good ol’ USDA MyPlate) would consider a healthy diet. A 2004 study published in “The Lancet” found that eating fast food more than twice per week is linked to rapid weight gain, increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, and sometimes fatal cardiovascular health problems. In fact, the processed fat in McDonald’s food (and other fast food) promotes endothelial dysfunction, which is linked to erectile dysfunction down the road. Is all of that really worth a couple of minutes without whining?

kids dont eat mcdonald's

3. The company refuses to acknowledge what its food does to kids.

Sure, sure, every day we hear that McDonald’s offers a plethora of healthy choices, blah, blah, blah. It doesn’t matter. Offer as many weird, wilted salads as you want, but almost no one buys them, and certainly not kids. If McDonald’s is so healthy for kids, why doesn’t the company prove it? Instead, McDonald’s has consistently refused to assess the impact it has on children’s weight and health.

4. It hurts families.

Are you looking forward to the holidays? Planning family meals and special Christmas morning surprises? You’re lucky. For the millions of parents who have no other option but to take jobs in the fast food industry (because, you know, if they go on public assistance while looking for better work they’re called mooches), these luxuries don’t exist. In recent years, McDonald’s has urged its franchises to stay open on Christmas day. To add insult to injury, workers at company-owned restaurants didn’t receive overtime for working the holiday last year. This is on top of the frighteningly low pay, zero benefits and general exploitation.

mcdonald's

5. Because your kids are their future.

We haven’t even begun to discuss the impact McDonald’s and other fast food chains have on the environment and agriculture (i.e. factory farming). If those issues matter to you, the last thing you should do is introduce your kids to this food. It’s no secret that one of the oldest items on the McDonald’s menu is the “Happy Meal,” a kid-sized sack of fake food accompanied by a plastic, Made in China toy. McDonald’s has and always will target children with its advertising. Why? Because kids, especially crying, screaming ones like in the NYC custody story, are very persuasive. Those commercials and toys are meant to get kids eating McDonald’s early, so that they’ll be customers for life. (Did we mention fast food has been proven to be intentionally addictive?) Once hooked, McDonald’s knows your kids will return as adults, allowing them to continue their gross, destructive, exploitative practices in perpetuity.

 The financial dictatorship that has been in existence across the Spanish State since 2008 has a proper name: the banks. The bailout that the government has given to the banks has been countered by a new wave of occupation in the city of Barcelona: bank occupations.

Currently, there are 7 bank headquarters occupied by residents in downtown Barcelona. The variety of occupations is wide. Some were occupied following a demonstration with music, parades … etc. while others have preferred the anonymity while the occupiers were reforming inside the bank headquarters. View full article »

Plastic Junk Litters our Oceans, Killing Sea Life — And it’s Getting Worse

Two masses of bits and pieces of plastic are growing larger each passing year. Most of the plastic is from North America and Asia.

The ocean may conjure up images of coral islands, gray whales and deep blue seas, but plastic junk?

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch – a collection of debris in the North Pacific ocean – is one of five major garbage patches drifting in the oceans.

Captain Charles J. Moore recently returned from a six-week research trip to the patch and was “utterly shocked” by how the quantity of plastic debris – everything from hard hats to fishing nets to tires to tooth brushes — had grown since his last trip there in 2009.

Illegal Logging in Para State, Brazil as revealed by Greenpeace activists.

October 15, 2014

Every night empty trucks disappear into the Brazilian Amazon, they return laden with timber. This timber —illegally cut —makes its way to a sawmills that sell it abroad to places like the U.S., Europe, China, and Japan using fraudulent paperwork to export the ill-gotten gains as legit. These findings are the result of a daring and dangerous investigation by Greenpeace-Brazil that had activists hanging out with truckers and illegal loggers, all the while surreptitiously tagging trucks with GPS locator beacons. The high-tech equipment allowed the organization to track where the logging trucks went.

“Illegal logging can be hard to get to tackle. Logging happens deep in the forest, far from the eyes of the world,” reads a blog on the mission by Greenpeace. “But all that is changing. Covert GPS tracking technology and satellite surveillance means…

DAY OF INDIGENOUS RESISTANCE

Designated by Franklin D Roosevelt as “Columbus Day” in 1937, the 12th of October is the date that Christopher Columbus first “discovered” the Americas.

The anniversary was re-named “Day of Indigenous Resistance” by Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez in 2002 to commemorate the beginning of the indigenous struggle against European invasion and colonisation.resistencia-indigena-fidel-ernesto-vasquez

On 12 October, the Spanish state celebrates its festival with a great military parade as the central event. This is a date full of
controversy. Today it is called the Day of the National Festival, but for a large part of Franco’s time, it was also called ‘Hispanitat’ Day
and originally the Festival of the Race. And it was and is not only observed in Spain, but also in a few American countries under very
different names, in commemoration of the beginning of the Spanish colonisation of America.
In Argentina for example, it is called the Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity, and in Chile the Day of the Meeting of the Two Worlds,
whereas in Nicaragua and Venezuela, the 12 October is the Day of the Indigenous Resistance.

Why is the world ignoring the revolutionary Kurds in Syria?

in The Guardian comments
  Amid the Syrian warzone a democratic experiment is being stamped into the ground by Isis. That the wider world is unaware is a scandal…
If there is a parallel today to Franco’s superficially devout, murderous Falangists, who would it be but Isis? If there is a parallel to the Mujeres Libres of Spain, who could it be but the courageous women defending the barricades in Kobane? Is the world – and this time most scandalously of all, the international left – really going to be complicit in letting history repeat itself?…

Demonstrators hold flags of Kurdistan and a flag with a portrait of jailed PKK leader Abdullah Ocalan as 20,000 march in Dusseldorf

In 1937, my father volunteered to fight in the International Brigades in defence of the Spanish Republic. A would-be fascist coup had been temporarily halted by a worker’s uprising, spearheaded by anarchists and socialists, and in much of Spain a genuine social revolution ensued, leading to whole cities under directly democratic management, industries under worker control, and the radical empowerment of women.

Spanish revolutionaries hoped to create a vision of a free society that the entire world might follow. Instead, world powers declared a policy of “non-intervention” and maintained a rigorous blockade on the republic, even after Hitler and Mussolini, ostensible signatories, began pouring in troops and weapons to reinforce the fascist side. The result was years of civil war that ended with the suppression of the revolution and some of a bloody century’s bloodiest massacres.

update: see Roar article below

KO

Latest reports say that IS attackers have been re-armed and have taken more than half of Kobanê the last stand of the progressive YPG Kurdish volunteers.

All of the surrounding countryside has been lost, with nearly 200,000 refugees in Turkey.

Kurdish reinforcements are still held back by the Turkish army in nearby Efrîn i Cizîrê.

Food water and ammunition are running out and the IS forces are massacring, burning, raping, looting and imposing Sharia law.

The Turkish army are sealing the border and giving direct physical and medical aid to the Islamist forces.

In the last few days over 30  people have also died in Turkey in protests against Turkish support of IS and blocking of Kurdish reinforcements.

 

Arin MirkanArîn Mîrkan and her children

The amazing resistance to barbaric macho IS by the progressive revolutionary volunteers in Kobanê is summed up in the fate of Arîn Mîrkan , among thousands of others.

Arîn Mîrkan was a commander of the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ), defending the Kurdish city Kobanê against the attacks of the Islamic State. Kobanê is on the 21st day of courageous resistance against IS. Arîn was surrounded by the jihadists, but instead of surrendering and falling into their dirty hands, she detonated herself and killed many IS-members with her. View full article »

A few more commentaries on the book.

The Free is a story with a serious message, and the real joy of it is how author M.Gilliland disguises that within a very good story. Almost every other “message” book I’ve ever read has been a bit ham-handed and clunky, but The Free is, well, Free of all that.

Based on the somewhat disjointed pitch, I was expecting a fairly wacky tale, but The Free has many serious moments that could give literary fiction tales a run for their money. Dialog is spot on perfect and it’s easy to emphasize with the main character as either Linda or Maxie. In fact, in a lot of ways, Linda/Maxie and to some extent Macker are the normal ones, the straight-man role for the crazy world Gilliland has created.

It’s also interesting to note that The Free is quite a timely tale given what is happening in the world. We’re killing our climate and our economy is going down with it, making The Free an admirable anecdote to represent our somewhat lost generation.

‘’This is the most detailed fictional treatment of the movement from a world recognizably like our own to an anarchist society that I have read. More importantly, it is imagined strongly enough to allow readers to believe that events could happen this way. That is to say, it gives plausible answers to the two most important questions regarding such a transformation: under what preconditions is it likely to occur, and once it starts what factors most contribute to its success?……”  Dan Jaekle

This reads like “A Confederacy of Dunces” by John Kennedy Toole and Alan Moore’s “V For Vendetta”. You have that skewed look at mass rebellion from a protagonist a little out of the mainstream idealistic vision of a revolutionary. This is at it’s core taking a non-plausible hero or unlikely band of heroes that you have made conventional. It’s the literary equivalent of taking Humpty Dumpty and making him Che Guevera.  Brillant writing executed with precise subtlety.–JL “The Devil Of Black Bayou:”

 

Reading this was so energising. I love the MC and her humour and her struggle to make sense of everything. Very, very good writing. Refreshingly different. It feels as though you had enormous pleasure writing it and that shines through. Nothing to criticize. Thanks for an interesting and uplifting read. Made my day!    Fontaine

Strong believable, compelling situation. “Like a bee in a jar” is lovely.
“I had the idea that my father was great. It’s true he did shout and roar and get drunk. But I was his own big girl.” This is beautiful writing, we feel how torn she is between the emotional and the rational view of her father.
Similarly in,“But I still believed by dada was the best. For me he’d always been the bee’s knees. And I didn’t dare doubt it.”
“It was groaning brutal” is magnificent!
Nothing is simple here, it is life with all its hidden complexity, I liked, “I’m still not sure sure that I didn’t vomit on her on purpose” and “They always have their hooks inside your head” The world you’ve created is dark and rich.
“My feet went crunch crunch down the gravelled drive, like a zombie late for lunch.” Brilliant and funny, as is, “I’d like to say I couldn’t care two drops of diarrhea what he done. But that would be a sinful lie.” and I loved,
“because the sun and the moon and all the stars shone out of his arsehole” it is gloriously strong and earthy.

”The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based activist group that monitors casualties from the three-year-old conflict in Syria, reported that there had been at least five air strikes south and south-east of Kobane.

It said nine Kurdish militiamen from the Popular Protection Units (YPG) and an IS militant had been killed in clashes overnight.
