Some set off colored smoke flares. The resistance to tear gas and water cannon assault continued for hours. Continue reading Great Brussels Rebellion..photos and videos

9-N. Will Spanish forces attack Catalan ‘referendum’?


Its the moment of truth for the 9N Catalan ‘referendum’, now called the ‘consultation’.
The far-right Spanish government are playing the ”fascist card”, whipping up a dangerous frenzy of false nationalism to escape the avalanche of corruption cases being revealed daily against their top members.
WILL THEY USE MILTARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s POLLING STATIONS?
WILL THEY USE MILITARY POLICE AGAINST 1000s OF POLLING STATIONS?
The right-wing ”Spanish Constitutional Court” is about to ban it for the 2nd time (on orders from their political paymasters).    
Will  the Catalan government obey and order their own Catalan police, the Mossos, to attack the 40,000 volunteers who are all organized down to the the last detail and ready to go next Sunday?
If not will the corrupt and inept far Spanish PP government carry out its threat to arrest and jail the Catalan leaders, as happened so many times under the fascist dictatorship? Their direct predecessors even executed one legally elected Catalan president, LluisCompanys, along with tens of thousands of Catalan republicans, and banned the Catalan language from schools for 40 years, etc.

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.

Bullfights used to impose Patriarchy and Nationalism

Don’t expect to see a bullfight when you trip to Barcelona, the last stadium is closed and the ”sport” banned. In fact for years it was mainly kept going by the tourist industry.

The popular bumper sticker in Madrid is the bull, representing, for the Catalans,  cruel bullying disguised as ‘heroic’ sexist posturing.

Barcelona  cars on the other hand feature the Catalan donkey, symbolizing just a nice but stubborn animal, and maybe the ability to laugh at themselves.

In San Sebastian of the Kings, (real name Donostia in Basque) the battle against bullfighting is in full swing.  Last week there was a new demo against, which was attacked by pro-bullfight thugs, sending one girl to hospital. (see report below) Continue reading Bullfights used to impose Patriarchy and Nationalism
