Yesterday, November 30, 8 people were arrested in Hambach Forest. Among them, 2 comrades from Spain. Everybody was released last night except for the 2 comrades who were transferred to Cologne today for pre-trial detention. The names that they were known as in the forest were Siao and Hodey although in Spain we knew them by other names.

The last few days in Hambach Forest have seen an escalation of tension. On November 17 a road block action took place with a burning barricade and rocks thrown in clashes with the security company and the ‘installation’ of a fake explosive device that delayed the dismantling of the barricade and the tree felling for several hours.

Dreaming Beyond Capitalism: A Culture Without Fear

utopia-is-possible

 

George Monbiot lists 13 world catastrophes in his Guardian column this week, starting with the granting of absolute power to a man who appears to possess no capacity for restraint, balance or empathy, but a bottomless capacity for revenge and vindictiveness.

High on his list is runaway climate change which has a trajectory way beyond that envisaged by the Paris agreement.

Equally alarming are the red lights flashing for Economic Collapse, possibly kicked off next week with the fall of Italian banks and the Brexit mess.

Then there is the falling apart of the European Union, takeovers by far right governments in the pay of capitalist corporations, legitimation of sexism and racism, not to mention spreading permanent war as well as longer term emergencies such as the UN declaring that at current rates of soil loss we have 60 years of harvests left, and of course the extinction crisis which  appears, if anything, to be accelerating.

With the world in such a mess it’s a good moment to remind each other that it NEED NOT BE SO… Reaffirming long term goals can inspire us to stronger daily resistance.

 Dreaming Beyond Capitalism: A Culture Without Fear

By Martin Winiecki, .. shared with thanks

In the 1990s an unusual encounter took place in the Ecuadorian Amazon. In plant rituals, shamans of the Achuar, a tribe living in pristine forest that had never been in touch with Western civilization, received the warning that the “white man” would try to invade their lands, cut down the forest and exploit the resources. Deeply shaken, they called out to the Spirits for help. Continue reading Dreaming Beyond Capitalism: A Culture Without Fear

Warsaw. Barcelona. Roma. Thessaloniki. London.. we meet in joint attack.

Communique from the Bank of No Money, Deptford – London tumblr_n7cq55xmgm1sjpe5no1_500
We are rats running rabid through the stinking guts of London

Sick of the fractured ‘scene’ of squatters in London, sick of faux-punk venues and the fashionable veneer of rebellion, sick of the apathy and passivity, sick of housing where everyone is locked in their own rooms, their own lives, their existence atomised, stinking of fried chicken and choking on the bones of what once was, we came together to act …

We are a collective of those in active rebellion.anonymous-fuck-the-system-disobey-stickerWarsaw. Barcelona. Roma. Thessaloniki. London. All over we meet in joint attack.

We organised on the beaches of London for the TRESPASS gig – selling propaganda to fashion-punx and tourists about the trial of the Warsaw 3, dropping banners and smoke-flares whilst the crowd rioted amongst itself, spitting in our faces and rejecting all politics.

They scatter through the streets, the schools, the universities. They are no longer content to wait for tomorrow, they do not just want, as Max Górki said, to have the face of tomorrow. They are thirsty for today, they are hungry for the now. Continue reading Brazil Spring:. Who are the Boys and Girls occupying 961 Schools and Universities

We Support the Revolutionaries Accused of Aachen Bank Robberies..

free-prisoners
The gang hit for the first time at the Aachener Bank in July 2012.
Around noon, they ran into the bank and demanded money at gunpoint. Then they shut the bank employees in one room. One woman wearing a blond wig, sunglasses. They spoke good German.

The Dutch press reports highlighted that the German police had been harassing and seeking to arrest the Dutch woman dubbed by them and the predatory media as the ‘leader’ for years and she had previously been held for 5 months and released as there was no evidence.restemos-personas2rescue people not banks

The Dutch anarchists who demonstrated and continue to campaign for the release of the 3 described the charges as fabricated. The leaflets and declarations emphasize support for the arrested comrades whether ‘guilty’ or ‘innocent’ and some justified bank expropriations in the context of trillion euro bank fraud, capitalist extortion and planetary destruction. (see translations and signed communiqué below).

The police claim they have ‘DNA trace evidence’ on at least one of the women, but of course thousands of people go to banks, DNA evidence is unreliable, easy to plant and left behind on all kinds of objects..

They also claim to have photo proof and have released both security camera images and arrest photos of the accused, which show their ”proof” to be ridiculous. See below. Continue reading We Support the Revolutionaries Accused of Aachen Bank Robberies..

STOP el Gas de Fracking que Gas Natural Fenosa Lleva a España

‘Ni aquí Ni en ninguna parte’ es el lema del movimiento anti-fracking, y genera rechazo el engaño de la importación de gas del fracking de EEUU, especialmente ante las noticias que resulta mucho más dañino que el carbón.manifestacion_contra_fracking_Burgos

Los últimos estudios de Harvard  dan pruebas que ‘La Revolución del Fracking  es letal para el clima debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano y que ha hecho a perder todas las supuestas reducciones de emisiones en EEUU desde 2009.

2016: Se ha quedado probado que el Gas de Fracking es ‘ peor que el Carbón’.

El gas de fracking no es un sustituto menos dañino para el clima. Estudios autoritativos de Harvard  y Cornell y el estudio del grupo de by Dr Robin Russell-Jones  de the ecologist  han revelado que es  peor que el carbón debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano.La bomba de metano. las fugas de metano son forzadores poderosas climáticos y podrían, en teoría, nos empujan sobre un punto de la retroalimentación de inflexión por lo que el permafrost se derretiría liberando cantidades gigantescas de más metano, causando fugitivo recalentamiento global y el derretimiento de los hidratos de en el suelo marino, causando otro gran salto en las temperaturas, un colapso de la biosfera y la "civilización" humana, causando .... etcLa Bomba de Metano. las fugas masivas de metano puedan en empujarnos sobre un punto de la retro-alimentación de no retorno.

El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU.  Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).

Gas Natural Fenosa ha  contratado para recibir centenares de cargamentos del Gas del Fracking que está arrasando EEUU, causando innumerables cánceres, acuíferos envenenados y una nube de metano visible del espacio que empeora muchísima la crisis del clima mundial.

Además los envíos marítimos contribuyen hasta el 15% de los gases de cambio climático, más contaminación directa de los océanos.

 Gas Natural (GNA) ha firmado sus contratos por gas ‘normal’  pero el gas de Fracking puede ser el doble de dañino, así que queda la posibilidad de anular los contratos de suministro de gas del fracking ya hechos con empresas de EEUU por ser firmados bajo informaciones falsas.. ver detalles en el artículo aqui: https://thefreeonline.wordpress.com/2016/07/22/frack-gas-arrives-in-spain-worse-than-coal/ Continue reading STOP el Gas de Fracking que Gas Natural Fenosa Lleva a España
