la cita a Barcelona ..a les 8 del vespre sota l’Arc de Triomf i per participar-hi cal preguntar als homes presents “on puc trobar una botiga d’animals?” La contra-concentració feminista amb el lema “Fora masclistes dels nostres barris” dissabte a dos quarts de vuit del vespre a la parada de metro d’Arc de Triomf del carrer Nàpols.


Return of Kings’ is one of several ‘macho-fascist’ groups who spend their time making violent attacks on women via social media that get millions of angry responses and create a media frenzy, before selling various by-products and making a fortune.

The call for meet-ups in 180 cities aims to be a self fulfilling goal, cashing in on extreme sexists around the globe who fear losing their privileges to female emancipation.tumblr_inline_nsy9tcjRdF1sjc2hl_1280

Counter demos have been called, especially in Australia, with the slogan ‘no free speech for fascists’ Continue reading Sat 6th: Stop the Global ‘Women Haters’ meetups

Solidarity call for vegan ‘Straight Edge’ prisoner Nahuel

Nahuel is the only one of the 5 Madrid Straight Edge activists who is still imprisoned, with no bail, after being seized in a police raid on 4th Nov 2015.  As usual there is almost no evidence of ‘wrongdoing’. Nahuel is in jail to intimidate other young anarchists, and because the police especially hate their successful vegan, anti-drug,  ‘straight edge’ campaign

Death toll rises among Kurds trapped in Cizre basement amid heavy fighting

More than 20 people with injuries remain stuck in a basement in Cizre, as the government denies emergency amublance access. Turkey’s Constitutional Court even rejected a petition to evacuate the building.

How Men profit from Women’s “Invisible Labour”


womens' workAt work as at home, men reap the benefits of women’s “invisible labor” (by @schemaly)

SORAYA CHEMALY (piece on QUARTZ):

“Women’s work” and its benefits for men. (Reminded me that someone said to me again the other day: “behind every great man stands a great woman”. We all know what that’s meant to mean but let’s unpick it…)

On any given day, one fifth of men IN THE US, compared to almost HALF OF ALL WOMEN DO SOME FORM OF HOUSEWORK. Each week, according to Pew, mothers spend NEARLY TWICE AS LONG as fathers doing unpaid domestic work. But while it’s important to address inequality at home, it’s equally critical to acknowledge the way these problems extend into the workplace. Women’s EMOTIONAL LABOR—which can involve everything from tending to others’ feelings to managing family dynamics to writing thank-you notes—is a big issue that’s rarely discussed.

6,000 euros Fine each for Blocking Torture of Bulls

30The Prefectures of Castellon has imposed a fine of 6,000 euros on each of the 35 activists who prevented a bull  from being set on fire for ”sport” in the town of Olocau del Rey. This is the highest penalty imposed on Spain for such a crime and has been possible thanks to the new so-called ‘gag law’.(see related posts below) We publish the testimony of one of those people, unsigned for fear of further reprisals.

Early Sunday morning, Colin Kingston showed up at his ex-girlfriend’s house, angry and equipped with a large knife. He allegedly let himself in through a back door* and went up to 21-year-old Kelsey Annese’s room, where he found her and Matthew Hutchinson, 24. He and Annese had dated for three years until she broke up with him and moved on. Finding Annese in bed with what he presumed to be her new boyfriend, Kingston stabbed them both, then called his father, saying that he’d murdered his girlfriend and that he planned to also to kill himself. When the police showed up, all three were dead.
