Catalonia: Anarchists call for general Strike / Defense Committees against State Repression

note: there is a huge amount of Catalan news right now, with the referendum 6 days away. This is a sample only. Today the University was occupied and there was a mass postering around the city, etc.

Alternative trade unions in Catalonia call for general strike for October 3

A van of the occupying paramilitary police , swamped by the multitude and trapped for half a day.

The General Confederation of Workers (CGT) of Catalonia has presented a notice of call for general strike. The protest must be ratified by union members’ assemblies, sources from the organization’s secretariat said.

‘Unite the Struggles.. Towards the General Strike’


According to the union secretary general, Ermengol Gassiot, the general strike has been set for October 3 “because of the legal deadlines to be followed.” This call is made, for two reasons: “on the one hand, to claim the social and labor rights violated by the labor reforms since 2010 and, on the other, to fight against the cuts of fundamental rights and against the presence of armed forces in our places of work “.

US must sign Peace Treaty. 10 million of us Could die in First day of a Korean War

Metro Seoul, the  25 m strong prosperous capital of Sth Korea is just 35 miles from the border with long range artillery, drones, nuclear missiles,  thousands of tons of chemical weapons, nerve gas, etc  ready to deliver in just minutes after Trump attacks.

Ten million innocent people could die in the first  hours of a war with North Korea. With its back to the wall the dictatorial Northern regime would certainly unleash armageddon. The Chinese would certainly intervene as history proves (to them) that such a war is a covert US attack on China.

The peace treaty proposed by China, Russia, Germany and now France must be signed by Trump. The US has never made peace 65 years after the war ended broken every agreement, and forced North Korea into a corner.

The US did have  a nuke deal with N Korea; then cynically trashed every single clause of it (see here)..   Continue reading US must sign Peace Treaty. 10 million of us Could die in First day of a Korean War

Greenpeace activists block shipment of thousands of polluting VW motors

A CARGO ship carrying thousands of Volkswagen diesel-fuelled cars to Britain was forced to sail to another port yesterday after it was seized by environmental activists.

Around 25 protesters used kayaks and boats to reach the 23,000-ton car carrier in Sheerness Port in Kent at around 8.30am, environmental group Greenpeace said.

They climbed the ship and hung from the 27m-high unloading door, vowing to remain until Volkswagen “takes its toxic cars back to Germany.”

The ship turned around and sailed to Margate with the protesters still hanging on, according to the charity.

Dockworkers boycott Spanish police ships sent against Catalan referendum

By Alejandro López in Spain    Dockworkers in Catalonia’s two main ports, Barcelona and Tarragona, are refusing supply services to vessels carrying riot police and paramilitary Civil Guard units sent by Spain’s Ministry of Interior to crush the secessionist referendum.

This comes amid a rapidly escalating political crisis in Spain caused by the central government repression of the independence referendum called by Catalan separatist forces for October 1.Image result for CNT furgonetas de policia entran en crucero Barcelona

Just over a week before the scheduled referendum, Spain’s Interior Ministry has activated one of the largest security operations since the end of the fascist regime of General Francisco Franco in 1978. It is employing three tourist cruise ships to house more than 4,000 police sent to Catalonia. Two of the boats are anchored in Barcelona and the third in Tarragona.

Catalonia Revolution: Hundreds of Thousands block and defy Military police Repression

 Yesterday 20th Sept 2017 was a key day in Catalonia as thousands of military police invaded Barcelona city and began searching government offices of the local government, which is having its finances seized, and arresting public officials.
The response was unbelievable, on an ordinary weekday gigantic crowds appeared in Barcelona, Catalonia and around Spain. The police were blockaded and frustrated and withdrew when they finally could.
The day was a victory despite everything in that it showed it will be impossible to stop the Referendum without tens of thousands more imported police  who are needed elsewhere. the only other option would be to call in the army.

CNT warns of riot cops shipped into Barcelona docks

Published September 21, 2017

from  FreedomPress

In the febrile atmosphere of Catalonia’s attempted independence referendum and repression from Madrid, activists with the anarchist CNT union report that national police have been shipped in from all over Spain and are holed up at Barcelona’s port, seemingly in preparation to crush any significant upheavals.

Dock workers with Portuaris CNT have been tracking police movements in the Prince of Spain and Lepanto docks where three large ferries have been spotted which appear to be acting as hubs for officers loyal to the national PP (conservative) government.

Spanish President Mariano Rajoy has taken a heavily repressive line with the regional Catalan govenment over plans to mount a what Rajoy calls an illegal independence referendum on October 1st. Yesterday regional administrative offices across Catalonia were raided and 14 people detained, sparking a tense protest and standoff in Barcelona.

Madrid appears to be concerned about the loyalty of police on the ground, who are administered by the Barcelona government and have reportedly been reluctant to crack down hard on increasingly rowdy protests in the regional capital. A centrally-organised presence of national guard operating out of the docks would appear to be the PP’s standby measure to quickly enforce control if events escalate.
