Franco’s 40 year long catholic fascist regime buried at least 150,000 victims in  over 2000 unmarked mass graves. Up to 80 years later over 1700 remain unexcavated with their families awaiting  closure..

“Thrown here as if they were dogs, rudely, without order.” says Dolores Marin historian and part of the commission created from last May, after a loca law was approved in the Balearics forcing the government to finally take charge of the exhumation and dignity of more than 50 mass grave sites there on the islands.

Florence, Italy: Anarchists invite Public to Occupy a new Adventure

translated from 

Better in a Tent.. Speculation and Gentrification make finding a living space an impossible task.
Better in a Tent.. Speculation, Gentrification and mass tourism make finding a living space an impossible task.


 

We decided to occupy one of the many abandoned buildings in the city of Florence to make a place for socializing and sharing, to organize debates, presentations and concerts, to make room for those of us who need a place to be and do activities, to address the social disintegration and lack of opportunity that this city offers us

Florence is run by political powers and local councils for profit and is increasingly distant from the needs of the inhabitants. It is now the practice to sell everything:  the health of citizens, the right to exist of migrants and refugees of war, the dignity of those who have no home, the right to education, the lives of many working men and women.florence-occuipation-2016

The demagogic schemes of the government continue to mystify reality; spreading the culture of resignation, of individualism and conformity, as well as denying the possibility of a social transformation and the creation of a different world.

For these reasons we reclaim spaces and revive them, experimenting with forms of  social and horizontal self-organized centers, is one way to begin to build an alternative society, which does not require an authority and institutions to which we delegate the organization of our existence.

Turkish State Closes and Bans the World’s only Feminist News Agency: JINHA

jinha-banned-in-turkeymacho dictator abolishes and seals the only feminist news agency

Jinha News Agency continues on Twitter, although the Internet is also closed down for millions of  Kurds in 11  cities.

Women: ‘JINHA cannot be silenced, long live women’s solidarity!’ http://jinhaber.link/en/ALL-NEWS/content/view/67660 …

 JINHA News Offices have been closed down and sealed this morning by the police of the conservative Islamist regime of R. T. Erdogan. The news agency offered written and audiovisual content about women in general and globally.
Its closure is a victory for machismo that wants women invisible, his voice and his worldview. The last few remaining Kurdish media including Women only news agency JINHA & DIHA, Azadiya Welat were closed with new statutory decrees in Turkey.

‘Women’s resistance has begun’ http://jinhaber.link/en/ALL-NEWS/content/view/67556 …

 With JINHA, the Turkish government has closed a dozen newspapers, publications and six Kurdish news agency Dihao.

Erdogan succeeded in his coup of July 15, and now closes the media.

Not only that, yesterday 1,267 more Turkish academic teaching staff were sacked. And, as always, a huge silence, bitter and infinite, from world public opinion, and especially its institutions. This is  impunity.

Clausura i precinta l’única agència de notícies feminista del món

JINHA News ha quedat precintada aquest matí. Ahir fou clausurada pel règim islamista conservador de R. T. Erdogan. L’agència de notícies oferia continguts escrits i audiovisuals sobre aspecte de les dones en general i a nivell mundial. El seu tancament suposa una victòria del masclisme que vol invisibilitzar les dones, la seva veu i la seva visió del món. La seu a Amed ha quedat tancada.


BREAKING: Turkish government shuts pro-Kurdish/opposition 10 newspapers, 3 magazines & major Kurdish agencies #DİHA/#JİNHA under decree-law

Amb JINHA,el govern turc ha clausurat una desena de diaris, sis publicacions i l’agència de notícies kurda DIHA. Quan triomfa un cop d’estat, el més habitual és que els colpistes tanquin mitjans de comunicació no afins. Erdogan va triomfar en el seu cop d’estat del 15 de juliol, un auto cop, i ara tanca mitjans.

No només això, ahir va expulsar 1.267 acadèmics turcs de la docència. I, com sempre, un enorme silenci, agre, infinit, de l’opinió pública mundial i, sobretot, de les seves institucions. Té impunitat.

by wikipedia...  Since its founding last year dozens of rebel militias of all ethnic and religious hues have flocked to join the SDF (see long list and details below), as they can retain their identities and participate equally, embracing the new ideology of ‘Democratic Confederalism’ of the Rojava revolution. By May 2016 the SDF had up to 80,000 fighters and the percentage of Kurds was only about  60% and falling  (wikipedia). Continue reading Rojava Revolution gets support: Mass Desertions to join SDF
