Historical occupation of more than 50 BBVA bank offices to demand the withdrawal of the eviction notices
more ‘occupied banks’ news here :  http://wp.me/pIJl9-5l6si se puede.

The head offices have  already been occuped and paralysed for 18 days, with judges sseveral times refusing to sign eviction orders. Then on a Monday morning by surprise no less than 55 banks of BBVA  were occupied and paralysed. This is shaping up to be a mass citizens expropriation of  THE NEAR HALF A MILLION evicted homes now held by the banks and being sold off to speculators

UPDATE

VICTORY. next morning the BBVA bank gave in and promised none of the guarantors  in Sabadell will be evicted to pay odious mortgage debts. Many other cases will follow this precedent. THIS IS HOW TO WIN!!…However news of the victory  was hardly mentioned in the commercial media.

La victoria de la PAH de Sabadell, y la presión ejercida estos días ha provocado también que el banco esté intentando comunicarse con interlocutores otros PAHs para informar sobre la voluntad de resolver otros casos que también estaban muy encallados: la victoria, por tanto, trasciende los casos de la PAH de Sabadell.

Ha tornat a passar. Un correu, una piulada i alguns retuits. Nous albiraments de militars a Collserola, i van no sé quants. Aquest cop ha estat a la rodalia d’una escola de primària, a la zona barcelonina de Les Planes. Una mare ha agafat una càmera i ho ha pogut enregistrar en vídeo. Aquest cop se n’ha fet ressò BTV, i per bola de neu, TV3 una mica. Poc a poc.

Una tortuga insubmisa. Anem poc a poc, però hi anem, des de fa dies. A veure si sabem a on anem. Vam començar el febrer del 2011.

Recipes for Disaster: An Anarchist Cookbook

RecipesforDisaster

This is a modern guerrilla handbook, for all the rebels, inspired, resistors, collectives, occupiers who want to change the world to a horizontal not authoritarian society and who WANT TO LIVE THE CHANGE.

It’s an anarchist book first released by the CrimethInc. collective back in December 2004. The title is a joke.It provides all kinds of information on and strategies for direct action useful to activists and dissenters.There are sections on forming affinity groups, organizing demonstrations, stenciling, black blocs, sabotage, squatting, and more personal topics like mental health and “Supporting Survivors of Domestic Violence”.

It was written over three years by dozens of radical collectives from all over the world working together.

The work was positively reviewed in Fifth Estate ) and Clamor  as well as by Kirsten Anderberg.fight-where-you-stand

“This is a handbook for direct action. Any action that side-steps regulations, representatives, and authorities to accomplish goals is direct action. View full article »

Crazy or what?

Monday’s 4.4 quake was a timely warning. It’s typical that the USA permits fracking waste injection wells, known to trigger earthquakes, all over an area of dangerous fault lines. Anything goes, as always in the sacred cause of making a fast buck. Of course prospecting and extracting new fossil fuel resources is ecocidal and ultimately suicidal for the human race, since we need to leave most of the already discovered fossil fuels in the ground, just to avoid a total catastrophe. Instead billions of public cash in tax breaks are handed out to these same mega criminals. Now hopefully fracking will be banned, at least in the city of LA.

Frack Quakes

the below articles were written just before the 17th March quake,, now they can say ‘I told you so!!

Will frackers cause California’s next big earthquake? View full article »

Indigenous Vow: We’ll Be ‘Dead Or In Prison Before We Allow’ Keystone Pipeline

On February 27, Oglala Lakota and  American Indian Movement activists joined in a four-directions walk to commemorate Liberation Day, an event to mark the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee. As they do each year, four groups gather to the north, south, east and west and then walk eight miles until converging on top of Wounded Knee, where they honor the fallen warriors and the tribe’s rich history of resistance……

…………The Oglala Lakota Nation is actively fighting the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. This 1,700-mile pipeline, which would carry 830,000 barrels of crude oil each day from western Canada through South Dakota en route to Texas. At two points it would even intersect with a pipeline that serves as a main water source for the Sioux Nation, affecting all of the Pine Ridge reservation as well as the nearby Rosebud reservation.

Anarchist Lessons for the Zombie Apocalypse

I was in a med study when the zombie outbreak began. That’s right, a master’s degree in philosophy and the only way I could come up with to pay rent was to sell my still-living body to capitalist science. I know, I know… in retrospect I should have studied something useful, like small engine repair.

Oh, and I wasn’t just in any med study when the zombie outbreak began, I was in the med study where it began. The researchers were testing some kind of acne medication, looking to see if there were any adverse side effects when it was used on healthy adults. There were. Thanks, capitalist society, for pretty much ending the world.

Chomsky: From Hiroshima to Fukushima, Vietnam to Fallujah, State Power Ignores Its Massive Harm

Noam Chomsky, world-renowned political dissident, linguist, and author. He is Institute Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he has taught for more than 50 years.march 14 chomsky in japam

World-renowned political dissident, linguist, author and MIT Professor Noam Chomsky traveled to Japan last week ahead of the three-year anniversary of the Fukushima crisis. Chomsky, now 85 years old, met with Fukushima survivors, including families who evacuated the area after the meltdown.

“[It’s] particularly horrifying that this is happening in Japan with its unique, horrendous experiences with the impact of nuclear explosions, which we don’t have to discuss,” Chomsky says. “And it’s particularly horrifying when happening to children — but unfortunately, this is what happens all the time.”
