You can’t evict 17 years of history

Evidently the authorities dont dare to risk a community uprising in their Barcelona pot of gold. After a big local demo and a host of community resistance it was announced the eviction of the iconic Can Vies center, occupied now for 17 years, was cancelled. … or was it?? Continue reading

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.

Living Utopia (The Anarchists & The Spanish Revolution)

A unique feature-length documentary (90 minutes; Spanish with English subtitles) which chronicles the origins and evolution of the Spanish anarchist movement and its important role during the Spanish Revolution (1936-1939)

shut-the-bastards-down1Living Utopia is a unique documentary that blends the historical account of the origins and development of the Spanish anarchist movement, focussing on the 1936 war. 

This documentary made in 1997 about the 1936 Spanish Revolution blends historical accounts of the development of the anarchist movement with first-hand testimonies.

A reflection on the philosophical underpinnings of such a movement and their practical application. As both an informative and inspiring piece of research it is considered a jewel amongst historians and rebel hearts.

Millions of peasants and urban workers successfully established a society based on equality, mutual aid, participatory democracy and self-organisation – all without a central state or government.

This fascinating yet largely unknown social experiment was eventually destroyed by forces from inside and outside the country.

    Those lyrics at the end struck me to the core (1:33): “And now I’m going to sing to what has never existed, the dove of peace”.

    Since the dawn of “civilization”, with few exceptions, we have never been free, and we’ve constantly been at war. We’ve always been enslaved to some tyrant or oligarchs. We must never lose hope my friends, that we can finally be liberated. It’s our duty and our responsibility to struggle, lest the elites leave us without a planet and future for our descendants.

  • Where am I gonna find a group of people who still have the basic skills of survival, in a world where those are not taught in school? A group of people who haven’t been brainwashed into believing in “democracy” where you get a false choice and give away your power to a government who only pretends to serve its people?12M_BCN

  • “The Anarchists were still in virtual control of Catalonia and the revolution was still in full swing. To anyone who had been there since the beginning it probably seemed even in December or January that the revolutionary period was ending; but when one came straight from England the aspect of Barcelona was something startling and overwhelming. It was the first time that I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle.” George Orwell – Homage to Catalonia page 4. From USⒶ

    Well, it’s not like it isn’t happening all over the world right now. We have the Zapatistas who are nearing the 20th anniversary of their struggle, the Recuperdad in Argentina, Greek Anarchists, anti-austerity protests in Spain, Common Ground Collective and Occupy Sandy in the U.S., Christiania in Denmark. There’s already a lot happening. Add to it. Nurture it. Make it grow and talk to others. Get them to think. Have you seen scot crow’s interview on RT?

  • Now if only that woman’s sadly incorrect assumption it had happened all over the world had been true, then we’d not be in the global shitstorm we’re in now8-6-06_greece_anarchists_students__001_

libertad 5 de FacebookUPDATE de los 5 de Barcelona

Pedimos por favor que NO MANDÉIS CARTAS a los compañeros, es peligroso para ellos y para vosotros mientras estén en FIES3.  Aprovecho para puntualizar que estamos llevando a cabo un duro trabajo, pero que lo que podemos publicar es mínimo, nuestro trabajo es desde 
apoyo a los presos, la familia y contactar con decenas de 
organizaciones. Pedimos por favor que nadie actué por su parte, haciéndolo  con
 la mejor de las intenciones puede convertir su acción en un problema 
grave para nuestros compañeros. Los que pedís como ayudar, podéis 
preparar acciones de recogida de dinero (bolos, cafetas etc...) ya que 
en breve tendremos lista la cuenta para el apoyo económico, también 
organizar concentraciones solidarias todo y que nosotros no 
organizaremos nada mientras eso no pueda ayudar a nuestros compañeros. 
 Salud y gracias por la compresión....See MoreYou, Ricardo Mauriz, Ste Blacknoise, Abel Garcia and 91 others like this.View 12 more comments
  • Los 5 de Barcelona Sentimos mucho la confusión, esto nos viene de nuevo, no tenemos experiencia con estos temas y eso nos dificulta el trabajo. Después de hablar con abogados y distintos colectivos con mas experiencia lleguemos a la conclusión de no publicar esa información como nos recomendó todo aquel que tenia experiencia en el tema, perdón por la confusión.

Update from;

Freedom NOW for the Black Flag ”Facebook Terrorists”

The 5 anarchists arrested Wed 15th  have been imprisoned without bail. They appeared in Madrid court on ‘promoting terrorism’ and other charges, that is, just saying things in favour of ETA separatists on their Facebook identities pages. According to the police on Facebook they are ”Kete Follen, Pakete Bomba, Cadenas Libertarias, Eskupe Metralla and Indio Apache Barcelona”.

Police photo of ''terrorist material'' seized form Kolectivo Bandera Negra

Police photo of ”terrorist material” seized form Kolectivo Bandera Negra

Of these we only found Eskupe Metralla still up, this page seems  like 1000′s of other radical young anarchists,  supporting animal rights, prisoners, punk bands, occupy, anti-fascist action etc… Perhaps thism is another police ‘mistake’. We saw no threats to politicians  or royals in his/her 1370 great photos, some do advocate violence, but were put on her/his wall by others, so the crime would be ‘not deleting a criminal photo  from your Facebook timeline’… Eskupe has not posted since Wednesday when the arrests took place.

After holding out for more than 5 months since the Court Order the Can Piella ‘Land and Liberty’ occupation was evicted yesterday, on the 2nd anniversary of the start if the 15M ‘Take The Streets’ uprising. The squat had become a symbol of anarchist type collective action, permaculture, and resistance to rampant capitalist speculation, with countless mobilisations and widespread public support, even by local councils.

The eviction comes on the same day as an ”anti terrorist” raid detained 5 local anarchists see here and in the context of a 15M offensive, with demonstrations and new occupations daily. See  here,  here  here  and here (Catalan) Continue reading
