Venezuela and Iran in the Crosshairs of Murderers Inc – Who is Next?

5003 Views 24 Comments   by Peter Koenig for The Saker blog

Imagine just for a moment, the World would stand up in unison, sick and tired of the aggressive killer arrogance of the United States and her vassals – and their joint war-force called NATO – and this World, our World, what’s left of it when you deduct Washington and its Brussels allies, would at once block every shipment of everything destined for the ports of the United States of America; every sea port, airport and road port. Hermetically. Nothing would enter. Nothing, no food, no medicine, no electronics, no cars – no nothing. And nothing could leave. No exports, no petrol, no grains, no meat, no pharmaceuticals and foremost, no weapons. Nothing.

And now, take your mind a step further – and imagine the same – exactly the same, a total and full blockage of Israel – nothing would enter, no food, no fuel, no medication, no machinery and especially no weapons – and nothing would leave; a full and total blockage.

This would of course be totally illegal; illegal and unacceptable, by any international law, by the standards of the UN Charter, by the Human Rights Laws and Directives – by any ethical values of human morals. Wouldn’t it? – Yet, this is exactly what these countries are doing, have been doing for decades, sanctioning to strangle and murder entire populations into death or submission. The US with Cuba; Israel with Palestine. And the coercion and strangulation go on, unabated.

 

 

The longest embargo – illegal, inhuman and outright criminal – Washington imposed on Cuba – 60 years. Because Cuba has chosen socialism as her form of state and government. Cuba survived and will never give in to the tyrant of the north.

Now the US is expanding her palette of killing by impunity to dominate and subjugate nation after nation which they do not consider bending sufficiently to the dictate of their masters. Venezuela has been targeted for two decades, ever since former President Hugo Chavez was democratically elected in 1998; and Iran, ever since the US-imposed Shah was deposed in 1979 – exactly 40 years ago – by Iran’s Islamic Revolution. Both Venezuela and Iran are rich in natural resources, especially hydrocarbons but also in gold, rare earths and other precious metals and stones.


8 August 2019 — Global Research: ..The Trump regime exceeds the worst of its predecessors. Based on the trend since the 1980s, whatever leadership succeeds it is likely to be even more contemptuous of world peace, equity and justice.Abandoning the JCPOA and INF Treaty, waging war on China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, and other nations by other means, entirely discarding the rule of law, fostering destabilization worldwide, substituting brute force for diplomacy, along with its rage for global dominance ups the stakes for possible nuclear war against one or more nations…


Contrary to what one would like to imagine, international world bodies, like the United Nations and her sister and associated organizations remain just about silent. When a high-level official utters some benign criticism of the US or Israel – it flairs up for a moment in the ‘news’, then it disappears again, as if it never happened. And indeed, nothing happens. They – the US and Israel – go on with their crimes in impunity.

The latest is an open declaration of economic warfare by Washington, a total embargo on Venezuela; the embargo is now being turned into a naval blockade. Similar steps are to be taken for Iran. That literally means that no merchandise – no matter how vital for survival, like food and medication, is allowed into Venezuela. Three days ago, the US seized, totally illegally, a cargo ship attempting to deliver food and medication to Venezuela – in the Panama Canal, territory which the US does not own or control anymore.

The ship was carrying soy cakes, from which Venezuela was to produce food. Never mind, that the cargoes are fully paid for by Venezuela. And this seems to be just the beginning. Vessels leaving Venezuela with petrol deliveries to client countries are also targeted for blockage, thus confiscating, or rather stealing, Venezuela’s main source of income on which she intends to survive and feed and provide health care for her people. This, in addition to the more than 130 billion dollars total Venezuelan assets confiscated – stolen – by the US worldwide .

And nobody says beep. Almost. Yes, there are some collective protests by countries in solidarity – like key members of the Sao Paulo Forum, as well as more than 60 members of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM – total 120 members) that have become especially active in recent years in defense of Venezuela within the United Nations. Protests and protest declarations also take place by ALBA members, a Latin American trade alliance (ALBA – Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America, 11 members [Venezuela, Cuba, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Dominica, Ecuador, Antigua and Barbuda, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Grenada and the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis]).

But most interesting are the hypocrites, those who write and scream that Venezuelans are starving to death, that the Maduro government neglects its people – yet these accusers-in-falsehood – let the US and her vassals strangle Venezuela and steal her foreign assets, including foreign reserves and gold, food and medical imports – they are saying zilch, nada, nothing. Just watching.

To top it all off, the Human Rights Commissioner, Madame Michelle Bachelet, Hypocrite-in-chief, who recently visited Venezuela, at the invitation of President Nicolas Maduro, on a Human Rights mission, and who delivered a devastating report about Venezuela’s HR, full of lies, half-truths and outright omissions, not mentioning with one word the US inspired coup attempts, the US-funded opposition and its bloody atrocities on the Chavista population, and the strangulating and starving by the US and US-dictated European sanctions – Madame Bachelet now came forward condemning the naval blockade.

Great. But she did not stand up against the deadly embargo by the US and the European Union. – What credibility remains for the Human Rights Commission? – The world can see it – it’s all bought, coerced into submission, like so many other UN agencies by the Murderers Inc.

If we are not careful, they are soon going to rule the globe. Thanks god, for Russia and China – which are also subjects of US-EU sanctioning and targeted for take-over. But they are a tiny little bit too big and too strong for this sort of games by the decaying US empire and her obedient rats on the sinking ship.

Similarly, the European Union – despots as they have been for hundreds of years as colonialists in Africa, Asia and Latin America – and continue in a modern colonial role through economic control of much of Africa – this very EU, has been sanctioning Venezuela for years on the orders of Washington, naturally, who else? – Now they condemn the naval blockade, but continue their routine sanctions regime.

According to a study carried out by the Washington DC based Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR), under guidance of Mark Weisbrot, CEPR co-director and Jeffrey Sachs, economics professor, Director, Center for Sustainable Development, Columbia University, New York, US and EU sanctions have cost some 40,000 Venezuelan lives. This mainly since August 2017, when Washington escalated its unilateral coercive measures against Venezuela and her state oil company, PDVSA, cutting them off international financial markets.

Yes, the world would have plenty of reasons to stand up and dish out similar naval and air blockades against the US and Israel. Just as a teaser to begin with, and if that doesn’t send a strong enough wake-up message, perhaps such embargoes should be considered on a longer-term indefinite scale. It’s illegal. But we are living in a world where international laws don’t count – where laws are made, as we go, by the self-declared hegemon, the US of A, and her symbiotic Middle East ally, Israel. – So, why not nudging the legal, moral and ethical order back into balance?

Cops call for Terrorist Crackdown on Climate Protestors

By rs21      

The youth strikers for climate have taken to the streets again today (Friday 19 July), at the end of a week of action by Extinction Rebellion (XR).

XR Bristol, 16 July 2019. Photo: Luigi Hay

Establishment attitudes towards XR have been hardening. This week, a report co-authored by a former head of the Met Police’s Counter Terrorism Command warned of XR’s ‘subversive agenda… rooted in the political extremism of anarchism, eco-socialism and radical anti-capitalist environmentalism’.

The report calls for a ‘far more proactive’ police response, new anti-protest legislation, more prosecutions, and demands that ‘politicians and public figures should avoid endorsing, legitimising, or meeting with Extinction Rebellion’.

Addressing climate catastrophe needs to be part of a wider vision for change: ‘We need a redistribution of finances anyway… We’re living in an unfair society.’

El Huerto Okupado contra el Buitre más Malvado del Mundo ..

El dueño del huerto okupado de la Prosperitat recibe $3.000.000.000 el año de EEUU por ‘servicios militares’

read in English Here:   https://wp.me/pIJl9-d6Z

El día 21 de Junio el colectivo del huerto y jardín okupado  en el barrio obrero de la Prosperitat en Barcelona fue amenazado con desalojo, este vez por parte del dueño nuevo, el fondo buitre , Cerberus que pertenece al mega buitre Steve Feinberg. Cerberus está preparando el ‘mobbing’ y el desalojo de miles de pisos comprados en lotes en barrios populares para luego gentrificar y revender a precios exorbitantes.

Vecinos del Raval hacen 15 dias de resistencia en conrta de desalojos inminentes de Blackstone desde 1 de Juliol. ver.. Sindicat de llogaters ..https://twitter.com/ravalsindicat?lang=en
.ver también: El Raval, en peu de guerra contra l’especulació de Blackstone

Sin embargo, a lo mejor para hacer relaciones públicas,  no se ha atrevido meterse con l*s okupas de La Prosperitat. El caso ha sido suspendido temporalmente y el  huerto sigue desafiando el ‘buitre más malvado del mundo’.

ver tambien..Barcelona: 15 day blockade stops Blackstone eviction of 10 Families

El huerto, que ha sido okupado durante 3 años, (antes fue abandonado 10 años) es ”un modelo de funcionamiento libertario” y cuenta con el apoyo unánime del barrio entero, desde el ayuntamiento al gato de la vecina, y es también un ‘Ágora’, un espacio libre para todo tipo de actividades.

El primer intento de desalojo fallado fue por parte del BBVA.. el banco buitre, que, a pasar de ser rescatado con 12 mil millones de dinero público sigue abusando con desalojas masivas, especulación descarada y prácticas nocivas, resistido por compañer*s de la PAH. la Obra Social y los Okupas. BBVA incluso da apoyo a la organización mafiosa llamada Desokupa, formada por sicarios de los desahucios que se dedican a desalojar ilegalmente. El huerto fue vendido como parte de un ‘paquete’ a Cerberus, el fondo de 4,000,000,000 dolares del judio de Nueva York, Steve Feinberg, amigo personal de Donald Trump, . (La palabra ‘Cerberus’ significa un monstruo mítico Griego de 3 cabezas!). En 2018, el Donald Trump nombró al multimillonario  Feinberg para dirigir  la Junta de Inteligencia del Presidente

Con la compra desde Banc Sabadell de dos carteras inmobiliarias valoradas en 3.900 millones de euros por Cerberus Capital Management, (tras una quita del 57%), Santander (1.535 millones y 35.700 activos inmobiliarios) y BBVA (su cartera inmobiliaria por 4.000 millones) , Cerberus ya ha gastado cerca a 20,000 millones en inmobiliaria en España, y tiene un nivel ahora casi igual como Blackstone, el líder de los 32 fondos buitre que comen nuestras casas, con más que 100,000 ‘activos’.

Cerberus gana miles de millones aprovechando la muerte y la miseria como ”contratista” de la CIA en las guerras de Iraq, Siria, Afganistán, etcétera y invierte en propriedad muy barato en Europa, mucha de ella robado del público por no poder pagar hipotecas abusivos. Mucho del  dinero viene de su filial DynCorp como contratista militar, y indirectamente del monopolio financiero de los EEUU que puede ‘imprimir’ hasta $ trillones  porque todos tienen que negociar en dolares.

El dueño y CEO de Cerberus, Steve Feinberg, ha aplaudido públicamente este ‘gran oportunidad en Europa’  para especular o simplemente recoger alquileres para siempre.

Por otro lado, el nuevo gobierno semi-socialista ha introducido una ley para frenar la espiral de precios de los alquileres.

(ver también.. Medio millón de ejecuciones hipotecarias desde el estallido de la crisis …)

Como advirtió la Fundación Española de Cajas de Ahorros (FUNCAS),’‘ los fondos de capital privado con grandes inversiones han empezado a preocuparse de que muchas familias españolas, que se ganan la vida con trabajos mal pagados, sin seguridad, sean incapaces de pagar las altas rentas de hoy. Muchos de los que no pueden pagar ya han sido desalojados de los apartamentos que son propiedad de los fondos.”.

Landless MST Camps resisting neo-fascist Bolsonaro Regime

context: Financial and Landowning Oligarchy Looting the Country:     Corruption has always been  rampant among the Brazilian 1% elite and this was used to discredit the ‘leftist’ PT leaders(although corruption by the right is infinitely worse). Rightwing control of the judiciary was used to force out Dilma in an institutional coup and later to jail and disbar Lula, the clear favourite ‘socialist’ candidate for president.

The presidency went to a far right wing mafia boss, Bolsonaro, with a US spawned Trump style media campaign. Bolsonaro is using his presidential decrees; to try and open the country to selling off anything of value for commissions; for repression of the landless and impunity for the tiny minority of landowners who still own most of arable Brasil;  for open and continuous racist and anti gay and feminist statements, thus unleashing a flood of attacks; for trying to abolish Indigenous rights and land titles; for opening the Amazon and all areas to mining, logging, ranching, etc..

But above all the US supported Bolsonaro regime is about trying to abolish all progressive measures, health, education, pensions, food aid etc,  which have partly lifted the people from poverty, serfdom, ignorance and gender based oppression in recent years. Bolsonaro proudly advocates dictatorial rule  with death squads, torture and police and army repression.. Even so the EU has now signed a trade deal, thus legitimizing and rewarding the regime.


The Bolsonaro regime will not end the landless MST camps
interview with Kelli Mafort by Pedro Biondi

translated from/en castellano AQUI .. https://www.lahaine.org/cD6Z  ………   In the Temer government there was a very large freeze, and now the Bolsonaro government, in addition to the continuity in the cutting of public policies, tries to confront the popular movements creating a climate of terror in the camps and settlements (of the landless MST people), and promoting privatization of the settlements of the agrarian reform. The scenario is quite unfavorable and poses new challenges for the struggle of popular movements.

The Landless Movement of Brazil faces new attacks by the fascist regime, which is heading a crusade to privatize the territories.

Fraguas: Call to resist Eviction of Occupied Abandoned Village


Call to resistance in Fraguas.. en castellano abajo
Sent by Gavroche on Mar, 06/18/2019

 Fraguas.. NO Eviction NO Jail NO Demolition

Imminent danger of eviction, demolition and imprisonment of 6 people from the village of Fraguas. We can not allow it. We call for indefinite days of resistance in order to stop it. This can only be stopped if there is a massive influx of people willing to defend the project.

‘Half of Spain is de-populated to serve the capitalist consumer nightmare now destroying the planet. Now is time to defend Fraguas and re-occupy thousands of abandoned villages’.

There is no concrete date for the demolition but there are many preparations to be made and we need help. We intend to use techniques of peaceful resistance and disobedience. They want to destroy autonomy, community life, self-sufficiency, self-management, the rural world, its inhabitants and traditional culture.

-We believe and fight for the community, self-government, self-sufficiency and self-management. Since we arrived we were “invited” to abandon our dreams by environmental agents and civil guards with threats and fines, some of us carry thousands of euros in fines-.

They want to keep total control, civil society has to say ‘That’s enough’. With all humility we want to invoke the spirit of other struggles like those of Sasé, the ZAD, Hambach and many other stories of resistance that although they did not always conserve the space, served as seeds or inspiration for everyone.

They want to imprison 6 people for crimes that were committed by the Francoist government, usurping the houses and lands from their rightful owners and changing the territorial arrangement that had lasted for more than 5 centuries. Imprison them as real estate speculators, ironic when the corrupt and speculators are in the courts.

To all the people who have ever come, or if you have never come and want to see the land alive, it is time to come and defend it, if you wait it may be too late. Now or never. A big hug to all supporters.. Long live self-management.

Translate and disseminate this text .. and come to Fraguas!.

Fraguas resists

We write these lines from Fraguas, a squatted and rehabilitated village in the Sierra Norte de Guadalajara. the village, where 6 years ago there were were nothing but ruins, has been rebuilt through the work and enthusiasm of hundreds of people who have supported this self-managed project.

An assembly without hierarchies, with the principle of sustainability with the natural environment that surrounds it, learning day by day to sustain ourselves less and less attached to the capitalist system, caring for the earth and collecting its fruits, without harming it and learning to live in it, since from the moment we were born we were only taught to exploit it.

Practicing a collective existence and not falling into the competitive individualism that promotes the capitalist productive model. Rehabilitating with the materials that the earth gives us, the ruins that through the fraudulent expropriation at first left the Francoist state in 68, expelling forever its former inhabitants for a handful of pesetas and  condemned them to a life of work salaried in most cases; and later the use as a military practice range that took place in the 90’s.LLamamiento a la Resistencia Indefinida en Fraguas - Algrano

Right now a sentence dictates that “to restore balance” we must pay for the demolition of the reconstructions carried out and sentences 6 people to more than two years of prison . The Board of Castilla la Mancha (Podemos in coalition with the PSOE in the previous term and the PSOE with absolute majority since May 2019) conceals the atrocities carried out in the Franco regime. They intend to leave the town in ruins once more, expelling its inhabitants and leaving it in oblivion.

The State represses any attempt to attack or propose alternatives to its mercantilist dogma. Self-managed and horizontal projects such as this one, which escape their consumption logic, are in focus. In this logic of domination and control they attack Fraguas, just as they have attacked and will continue attacking any initiative that opposes them.

We can not allow them to achieve their objectives and simply crush us, we have to defend our liberated spaces. By supporting each other we have more strength and we will achieve it among all. With all humility we want to invoke the spirit of other struggles such as Sasé, the Zad, Hambach, Errekaleor and many other stories of resistance, which serve as seed or inspiration for all.

Currently there is no specific date of eviction but this could be imminent and we will not allow it. Concurring different types of strategies but with the firm conviction that here we are going to stay and continue to experience ways of living outside of authority and control.

We call for indefinite days of resistance in the village of Fraguas.

Living villages in struggle.

Llamamiento a la resistencia en Fraguas

Fraguas Resiste

Peligro inminente de desalojo, demolicion y encarcelamiento de 6 personas del pueblo de Fraguas. No podemos permitirlo. Hacemos un llamamiento a las jornadas de resistencia indefinidas con el fin de paralo. Esto solo podrá pararse si hay una afluecia masiva de gente dispuesta a defender el proyecto.

No hay una fecha concreta para la demolición pero hay muchos preparativos que hacer y necesitamos ayuda. Pretendemos utilizar técnicas de resistencia pacifica y desobediencia. Quieren destruir la autonomía, la vida en comunidad, la autosuficiencia, la autogestión, el mundo rural, a sus habitantes y la cultura tradicional.

«60% of the Spanish municipalities have less than 1,000 inhabitants, they occupy 40% of the surface, but hardly have 3% of the population».

Quieren manejar todo a sus anchas, la sociedad civil tiene que decir basta. Con toda la humildad queremos invocar el espíritu de otras luchas como las de Sasé, las Zad, Hambach y otras muchas historias de resistencia que aunque no siempre conservaron el espacio sirven de semilla o inspiración para todxs.

Quieren encarcelar a 6 personas por delitos que fue el gobierno Franquista quien los cometió, usurpando las casas y tierras a su legítimos dueños y cambiando la ordenación territorial que tuvo durante más de 5 siglos. Encarcelarles como especuladores inmobiliarios, irónico cuando corruptos y especuladores están en las cortes.

A todas las personas que habeis venido alguna vez, o si no habeis venido nunca y quereis verlo vivo es el momento de venir a defenderlo, si esperas quizás sea demasiado tarde. Ahora o nunca. Un abrazo a toda la peña viva la autogestion.

Traduce y difunde este texto,y acude a Fraguas.

 

Rehabilitación de viviendas en el pueblo de Fraguas. Ecologistas en Acción

Aún no hay fecha, pero los repobladores de Fraguas temen que no queden muchos días hasta que lleguen las máquinas que demolerán las casas reconstruidas de este pueblo de Guadalajara. Por ello, han hecho un llamamiento para defender este pueblo recuperado.

“Parece que va a ser prácticamente ya”, señala a El Salto Lalo Aracil, uno de los repobladores de Fraguas condenados por reconstruir este pueblo. “Están haciendo cortafuegos alrededor del pueblo, cuando no es fecha para ello, y también vino la Guardia Civil con peritos y estuvieron viendo las casas, incluso las que estaban fuera de la sentencia”, continúa. “Nos van a notificar dentro de nada, cuando ellos quieran. Y no sabemos qué plazo nos dará la notificación, algunos nos dicen que seguramente nos darán 24 horas, para que no estemos preparados”.

Ante una demolición que se prevé inminente, los pobladores de Fraguas han pedido apoyo a diversos colectivos, “para ver estrategias de defensa claras”, apunta Aracil. “Queremos que venga gente todo el rato, el llamamiento es continuo, para hacer unas jornadas indefinidas de resistencia, que se reúna masa de gente suficiente para poder detener a la policía”, continúa.

Por lo pronto, ya son entre 60 y 70 las personas que han acudido a acampar o a proteger las construcciones de Fraguas. También cuenta con el apoyo de otros pueblos recuperados de Pirineos y Navarra, desde donde se van a fletar camiones con materiales. Y de El Calabacino, otro pueblo neorrural de Huelva.

“Están intentando hacer grupos de permanencia de colectivos rurales para tener aquí un grupo de gente que se mantenga de forma fija, poder hacer cuadrantes y mantener a un mínimo de personas de continuo que aguantes hasta que se dé una alerta y dé tiempo a que gente de otros puntos del Estado pueda venir a ayudarnos también”, señala Aracil. La convocatoria ha ido más allá de España, contestando también gente del ZAD y del bosque de Hambach.

Condenados a pagar la demolición

Han pasado ya cerca de seis años desde que una docena de jóvenes decidieron ir a Fraguas, un pueblo que dejó de existir cuando, en los años 60, Franco ordenó su demolición para replantar pinos. Después se convirtió en zona de prácticas militares. Desde ese año 2013, los repobladores de Fraguas reconstruyeron tres de las casas del pueblo.

Todo fue bien hasta que la Consejería de Ordenación de Territorio, Urbanismo y Medio Ambiente les denunció por delitos contra el territorio y usurpación. En junio del año, seis de los repobladores de Fraguas pasado fueron condenados por el Juzgado de lo Penal número 1 de Guadalajara.

En enero, la Audiencia Provincial confirmó la condena de un año y nueve meses de cárcel para cada uno de ellos, además del pago de multas que suman los 16.380 euros y, también al pago de la demolición, cuyo coste, en la primera tasación, ascendía a 26.600 euros.

“La condena quedó en que, si no pagábamos la demolición, entrábamos a la cárcel dos años y tres meses, recurrimos al [Tribunal] Constitucional, porque consideramos que nuestros derechos de defensa habían sido vulnerados, y rechazaron el recurso porque dicen que no tenían relevancia constitucional suficiente”, explica Aracil.Rehabilitación de viviendas en el pueblo de Fraguas

Aunque sí se plantean pagar los 16.000 euros de multa, Aracil confirma que no tienen ninguna intención de pagar la demolición: “No tenemos dinero, y es que no creemos que haya que demoler el pueblo por segunda vez, solo hemos reparado unas casas que ya estaban aquí”.

En los próximos días señalan que se hará una segunda tasación de la demolición de Fraguas, y, con la nueva suma, tienen previsto acudir al juzgado para pedir una moratoria de la ejecución de la condena por cinco años. También siguen a la espera de la contestación de un recurso que presentaron para suspender las penas de prisión, y de una reunión con la Consejería de Ordenación de Territorio.

“Llevan dándonos largas desde abril”. En ese mes, desde la Consejería les dijeron que si conseguían crear un marco legal al proyecto de Fraguas, la institución castellano-manchega lo firmaría. “Ayer fuimos al registro para pedir una reunión de máxima urgencia, pero todavía no nos han contestado”, concluye Aracil.

Llamamiento a la resistencia en Fraguas

Escribimos estas líneas desde Fraguas, un pueblo okupado y rehabilitado en la Sierra Norte de Guadalajara. Pueblo que hace 6 años no eran más que ruinas y que mediante el trabajo y la ilusión de cientos de personas que han apoyado este proyecto autogestionado, asambleario sin jerarquías, con el principio de sustentabilidad con el medio natural que lo rodea, aprendiendo día a día a sostenernos cada vez menos atadxs al sistema capitalista, cuidando la tierra y recogiendo sus frutos, sin dañarla y aprendiendo a vivir en ella, ya que desde que nacimos sólo fuimos enseñadxs a explotarla. Practicando una existencia coleciva y no cayendo en el individualismo competitivo que promueve el modelo productivo capitalista. Rehabilitando con los materiales que nos da la tierra, las ruinas que mediante la expropiación fraudulenta en un primer momento dejó el estado franquista en el 68, expulsando para siempre a sus antiguos habitantes por un puñado de pesetas y para ser condenadxs a una vida de trabajo asalariado en la mayoría de los casos; y más tarde las prácticas militares que se llevaron a cabo en los 90.

Ahora mismo una sentencia dicta que “para restablecer el equilibrio” debemos pagar la demolición de las reconstrucciones realizadas y condena a más de dos años de prisión a 6 personas. La Junta de Castilla la Mancha (Podemos en coalición con el PSOE en la anterior legislatura y el PSOE con mayoría absoluta desde mayo) encubre así las atrocidades realizadas en el franquismo. Pretenden dejar en ruinas el pueblo una vez más, expulsando a sus habitantes y dejándolo en el olvido.

El Estado reprime cualquier intento de atacar o plantear alternativas a su dogma mercantilista. Proyectos autogestionarios y horizontales como este, que escapan a su lógica de consumo, están en su punto de mira. En esta lógica de dominio y control atacan Fraguas, al igual que han atacado y seguirán atacando cualquier iniciativa que se les oponga.

No podemos permitir que logren sus objetivos y nos aplasten sin más, tenemos que defender nuestros espacios liberados. Apoyándonos entre todxs tenemos más fuerza y entre todxs lo conseguiremos. Con toda la humildad queremos invocar el espíritu de otras luchas como las de Sasé, las Zad, Hambach, Errekaleor y otras muchas historias de resistencia, que sirven de semilla o inspiración para todxs.

Actualmente no hay una fecha concreta de desalojo pero este podría ser inminente y no lo vamos a permitir. Confluyendo distintos tipos de estrategias pero con la firme convicción de que aquí nos vamos a quedar y continuar experimentando formas de vivir al margen de la autoridad y el control.

Convocamos unas jornadas indefinidas de resistencia en el pueblo de Fraguas.

Pueblos vivos en lucha.

Jeremy Hammond: Anarchist Hero sends Message from Prison

June 11th 2019 statement

A special message from anarchist prisoner Jeremy Hammond

A raised fist to you all this June 11th! May this letter find you in revolutionary health and spirits. Although I am unable to be with you physically on this occasion due to being held in captivity by the BOP, I still feel connected with you on this day of solidarity. It was nice to run the 5K with you a few days ago for Running Down The Walls. I also sent out a few dozen origami models decorated with June 11th anarchist tattoos; you should be receiving those shortly.

Big ups to the other anarchist comrades behind bars. We have been through a lot of trials and tribulations over the years: harassment from abusive guards, solitary confinement, diesel therapy, the mind-numbing frustrations from battling the brutal bureaucracy for so many years. Never have we been alone, however. Continue reading “Jeremy Hammond: Anarchist Hero sends Message from Prison”
