Black Cross organiser Tamara gets 8 years

Tamara gets 8 yrs for attack on Prison Boss

Tamara Hernandez today accepted she tried to kill the head of the Prisons, the long hated  Albert Batlle i Bastardas .

Albert had refused repeatedly to grant any clemency to the amazing anarchist prisoner Amadeu Castellas,
when he was on his 2nd hunger strike in 2009 after serving 22 years, way over his sentence.
The campaign for Amadeu went world wide, with daily attacks and demos all over, as he was apparently dying,
and put incommunicado in solitary by the same  Albert Battle i Bastardos.
Tamara sent Albert a packet of gunpowder, 50 grams.
We had understood it wasn’t ‘loaded’ and was just a threat, but at the hearing yesterday the `police produced
‘proof’ that it was potentially lethal.
Then Tamara agreed a legal deal, her sentence was reduced from 17 to 8 years if she admitted it.
”I wanted to kill him”.. she said,. (well so did nearly everyone.)
SOLIDARITY DETAILS WILL BE PUBLISHED HERE WHEN AVAILABLE.
La Audiencia de Barcelona ha condenado a ocho años de prisión una joven anarquista por enviar un paquete bomba al ex secretario de Servicios Penitenciarios Albert Batlle en octubre del 2009. La chica ha aceptado los hechos y la pena, que se ha rebajado a la mitad respecto lo que pedía inicialmente la fiscalía.
Tamara iba a ser juzgada hoy en la sección séptima de la Audiencia de Barcelona, pero finalmente ha aceptado la rebaja de pena planteada por la Fiscalía y

Tamara''s attack on Albert Battle was to defend our comrade Amadeu Casellas, then dying on hunger strike due to Battle's refusal to grant basic human rights.

se ha conformado con una condena de ocho años de cárcel, la mitad de lo que el ministerio público pedía inicialmente para ella, según fuentes judiciales.

El fiscal pedía 16 años de cárcel por los delitos de asesinato en grado de tentativa (12) y tenencia de explosivos (4).
Ha habido una concentración en la entrada de la Audiencia de Barcelona, frente a fuertes medidas de seguridad, para protestar por la condena de la anarquista

love and rage: life after the collapse of capitalism

Greetings to all, especially you FoFees  (friend of the Free)  hope you’re enjoying the book

Set in the Collapse of Capitalism our heroes escape their School and Family and fall in with the squatters, anarchists and gays, who are busy getting ready for the final confrontation and the Dawn of a co-op Money Free world.. It’s a thriller as well..

Just to say it is selling well..Not a surprise as it’s FREE  (lol). It also makes a very economical present.

It now has 1322 Friends of The Free on FARCEbook (FoFoFs), and I havent a clue who’s who.  http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001284179241

Plus its Blog has had 36.218 page views in 7 months. Seems like a lot.

Of course most people just  passed by the blog looking at other stories. https://thefreeonline.wordpress.com/

Here’s a few more of the hundreds of reviews the book has had on the ‘Authonomy’ website  http://www.authonomy.com/books/4458/the-free/

Abuse of power being consistent in our culture, where fear colludes with the bully, it is cheering to see victims organising and supporting each other . This will appeal to a great many young people.
You give us moments of delight:… rolling her big eyes back to us girls … such scandal would zoom round and round the area – like a bee in a jar … Then her daffodil moment of glory: dancing and swirling, waving the flowers at the grey building … the golden snow. I’ve never heard of ‘testerical laughter’, but it kind of hits the mood of the moment.I really like your book and back it with pleasure.  Pia (Course of Mirrors)

Wow; I can’t stop reading! I’ve just finished chapter 8, and I’m only stopping because it’s 1AM! It seems to remind me a little of ‘A Clockwork Orange’, combined with ‘A Child Called It’. I cannot wait to read on. I’m still not entirely sure about a lot of things (such as the political situation) but everything I’ve read so far has been wonderful. If I get the chance, I will buy this book.

Karen Eisenbrey I read three chapters and the glossary. I like your ideas for remaking society, especially the mix of practical, earnest things with more whimsical ideas of fashion etc. I especially like how in the first chapters, it’s not obvious that the story takes place in (I would guess) the near future in a shifting, alternative society. But there are little clues all over the place that things are falling apart and changing, present but not taking over the story. We start with Linda, a real, relatable character. You’ve nailed the voice here. She’s articulate and smart, but not at all formal; young, angry, scared, beaten down but ready to stand up. Good luck with The Free!…Karen Eisenbrey

Aaron Pattis wrote After three chapters, nothing will stop me from reading the rest of this book! Who couldn’t pull for a kid like this and wonder where she’s going to end up? There are some terms that I have difficulty with sometimes, like “lekky” and such, but soon enough figure it out. But I wouldn’t change that voice for this story because it adds to the richness realism in the characters. Great job and backed with pleasure..Aaron,”80 Grit”

Lmfrenchwrote   Wow, what can I say? I love how you capture Linda’s voice. It wasn’t too long ago that I was a fifteen year old girl and…well…wow. I read some of this the other day and wasn’t too

Occupy The Planet. Abolish Debt. For a Co-Op world.

impressed, but I re-read it and trudged on to see what happened beyond the first page and I must say, I am very glad I did. I found myself giggling a bit and read on with a smile. It is a fun story. I am not normally a fan of 1st person POV but you seem to be able to still bring your characters to life. Very nice.

Funny and wonderful. Loved it. J.

What a uniquely funny read.  Really cracked me up!  Camille…Curse of the Golden Fly/The Hobble Knobble Gobble Tree
 Great opening. Fast-paced and spirited way of writing. I like the talk about men drooling over Janice (lol); very typical. It’s real! and the “like a pack of randy dogs snifting after her”…This is what happens most of the time, in real life. Good job Mike. This work is so rich and moving, good humored. I can’t stop reading it.GOOD LUCK!!    Emma Philips…The Dark Intruder
Well Mikey…a huge HUGE contemporary tale. Brutal and brave..comical and painful.  Your style is enviably quirky. The language stripped yet so incredibly weighted. Congratulations, I wish you every success with THE FREE. .    Dawn:ARK
 What a crazy romp this is! I like it!

Anti Pope Art Competition concludes

Por fin se fue su ridícula santidad, y con él las hordas de devotos, pijos, fascistas y demás ralea que inundó Madrid durante la Jornada Mundial de la Juventud (y de la represión policial). La CNT madrileña da, por razones evidentes, por concluida su campaña que, por desgracia, se ha quedado corta: ni los 1500 carteles, ni los 4000 comunicados, ni las 5000 pegatinas editadas para la ocasión han sido suficientes para satisfacer a los muchos simpatizantes de esta campaña que se han acercado a nuestros locales en la última semana para llevarse unos pocos y se han encontrado que ya se habían gastado.

EDL fascists blocked by community/unions

Fascist march blocked in london

by Phil Dickens..For the English Defence League, today was undoubtedly a spectacular flop. After months and months of hype about “marching into the lion’s den” in Tower Hamlets, they managed only to get 600 people to the final demo point – and that outside of the Tower Hamlets borough! Meanwhile, huge crowds of anti-fascists turned out to defend the streets.

The EDL found themselves unable to enter Tower Hamlets when the RMT threatened to close Liverpool Street Station if they were allowed to muster there. They then closed Kings Cross station when the fascists gathered nearby, and they had to get a police escort to Aldgate……….

……Anti-fascists are unanimous in declaring the day a victory, but not so much in what was responsible for said victory. In his only acknowledgement that not all anti-fascists agreed with a state ban, Nick Lowles claimed “today has proved that [the ban] was the right decision.” Unite Against Fascism laid the credit at the feet of “the greatest possible opposition to the racists and fascists,” who “ensure[d] the [EDL] could not threaten the borough’s multiracial, multicultural community.” Tower Hamlets ALARM largely agrees, saying that “a mob of locals and antifascists” defended the area and saw the fascists off…..

It was the solidarity of the RMT (effectively threatening illegal strikes to shut the stations down) which saw the EDL’s movements interrupted and foiled rather than any legal measure. And of course the “mob” was the best protection Tower Hamlets could have had.

Save Tamara from 16yrs..Solidaritat 14 Set.

  traducciò Anglès..On September 14 the trial will begin our comrade Tamara. The State demands 16 years imprisonment under
the accusation of trying to assassinate the head of the prison services of the Government..Mr Batlle.
She is accused of  sending a package with gunpowder to Battle, and was carried out as part of a campaign to fight for the release of  the anarchist prisoner
Amadeu Caselles, at that time on hunger strike.He had endured over twenty years of condemnation  being
especially punished for his  work of reporting abuse, torture, and murder in the prison system run by the same
Mr. Batlle.
Tamara was arrested on 15 December at her home (Madrid) by members of the Guardia Civil in prison and
Catalonia for 4 months until a judge accepted a defense expert report proving that a purely
intimidating and non-lethal package was sent.
The trial continues against our colleague, in order to publicly punish the audacity of those who faced up to the
powerful’. The message is that people like the prosecution and Batlle  have every right to cover up their crimes,
ruining the lives they want. Our message is that despite the threats and punishments, you will never have our complicit silence.
Do not let any single fighter be destroyed!
On 14 September..Lets take to the street against the killers

EN CATALÁ..El proper 14 de setembre començarà el judici contra la nostra companya Tamara. La petició fiscal és de 16 anys de presó, sota
l’acusació d’intentar assassinar el cap dels serveis penitenciaris de la Generalitat Albert Batlle.
L’acció que se li imputa és
l’enviament d’un paquet amb pólvora a en Batlle, i es va dur a terme en el marc d’una campanya de lluita per l’alliberament del pres
Amadeu Caselles, en aquell moment en vaga de fam. Aquest pres portava més de vint anys de condemna a les seves esquenes, sent
especialment castigat per la seva tasca de denúncia dels abusos, tortures, i assassinats inherents al sistema penitenciari dirigit pel
Sr Batlle.
La Tamara va ser detinguda el passat 15 de desembre a casa seva (Madrid) per membres de la Guàrdia Civil, i empresonada a
Catalunya durant 4 mesos, fins que un jutge va acceptar un informe pericial de la defensa que provava el caràcter merament
intimidatori i no-letal del paquet enviat.
El procés judicial contra la nostra companya continua, amb l’objectiu de castigar públicament l’atreviment de qui s’encara als
poderosos, de qui toca als ‘intocables’. El missatge de la fiscalia és que persones com en Batlle tenen tot el dret i la cobertura per
arruïnar les vides que vulguin. El nostre missatge és que malgrat els càstigs i les amenaces, mai tindràn el nostre silenci còmplice.
No deixem sola a cap lluitadora perseguida
El 14 de setembre, al carrer contra els botxins
