Rebel Pussy parades defy Catholic Prosecution

en español abajo. We took to the streets to denounce the insecurity faced by women, the violence to which we are subjected to and to claim the right to decide whether or not to become mothers. We made music with joy, dressed up and paraded, accompanied by a Rebellious Pussy through the streets of Seville on May 1st, 2014, as a metaphor of what we DON’T want to be: submissive trapped women .

Last Thursday, three of these demonstrators were cited as defendants to testify after a complaint lodged by the Spanish Association of Christian Lawyers  who see the procession carrying the Rebel Pussy as a crime against their religious beliefs and a crime of incitement to discrimination, hatred and violence for reasons related to religion or belief, with a prison sentence of between one and four years and a fine .

Madrid ~ Two anarchist from the CNT who performed a “puppet show” were detained yesterday afternoon. cnt en defensa de la culturaThey  had been invited by  Madrid city hall to perform a puppet show for the kids for the week of Carnival, in one part of this puppet show they put out a banner thatg says “Gora Alka-ETA” which has double meanings.2469hmg

If you put “Gora ALKAETA” without a dash it could be saying “viva the mayor”(mayor in euskera is alkateta), but if you put it with dash it shows up as viva  “ETA” (which is recognized as the ex Basque guerrilla group).The signs included the made-up word ‘alka’, also creating a slogan involving a play on words to sound like “Long Live al-Qaeda”. puppets-genericSo the parent at the puppet show were “shocked”(as  they were described) and they right away called the police to complain that this puppet show was “supporting and promoting Terrorism”.

Also they were complaining that the puppet show  encouraged the kids “to occupy an empty house”.

Now these 2 comrades are charged with “Apología del terrorimso” which means they openly promoting and advocating terrorism, and could be sentenced 1 to 2 years in prison.titeres_abajo5

anarchists we love: 1. Emma and Nello

Nello Garavini belonged to a family of well-known anarchists in the small town of Castel Bolognese . His father Pietro (1869-1933), in addition to being a militant with a certain influence in the local area, ran a tavern for many yearsUntitled

Nello joined the anarchist movement when very young, attending numerous  libertarians conferences including those of Errico Malatesta, who influenced him decisively. An avid reader of different social and political texts, he got a good self-education. He also met the anarchist anti militarist Augusto Mazetti, when he was held in the asylum in nearby Imola, and became one of his greatest friends.

June 1914 witnessed the “Red Week”, during which crowds in protest assaulted and destroyed the railway station of Castel Bolognese. When the Great War broke out he joined the anti-intervencionist group and became a remained a radical anti-militarist, even when Italy entered the conflict, which was very risky. 

In 1916, together with a group of young anarchists he founded the “Gruppo Anarchica Giovanile “(GAG  Anarchist Youth) and the Libertarian Library . Among the supporters of the group was his brother Simone (Cino) who was arresteds and jailed for a year. Nello organized protests against interventionism and patriotic demonstrations and secretly spread a subversive manifesto urging desertion among the soldiers. Nello was specially active in the deserters movement which swept through Emilia-Romagne.

During the war, he actively participated in the “Red Biennium” riots and promoted the trend of organizing the anarchist movement on Malatesta’s principles). He actively participated in the uprising against the ‘scarcity of life’  that took place between 2 and 3 July 1919 in Castel Bolognese, as well as other Italian townss.

Nello Garavini set up the Union of Castel Bolognese, which joined the Italian Anarchist Trade Union (USI) and acted as a branch of the headquarters of Imola. At this time Nello also secretly took charge of “material preparation” for the revolution, procuring weapons for his comrades (Brescia, Valdarno, etc.).

GAG was represented at numerous meetings.. Cesena (7 September 1919), Bologna (14 September 1919), etc. the National Congress of the Italian Anarchist Union (IAU), and  the Second National Congress of the IAU held in Ancona.emma garaavini

In 1921 Nello met Emma Neri, a young schoolteacher born into a socialist family, and she soon became his companion. Continue reading anarchists we love: 1. Emma and Nello
