UK , London: Group of cyclists tail immigration enforcement snatch van through the streets of London

 from actforfreedom  Submitted anonymously –         Today a group of people on bicycles encircled and tailed an immigration arrest van through the streets of central London as it was on its way to carry out a raid.

This was done to alert people to the existence of these vans and their daily incursions into our neighbourhoods. It was also done to disrupt the smooth running of immigration enforcement; a machine that rounds people up, detains them indefinitely, and expels them from the country to face unknown dangers.

Some twenty people occupy a historic higher school of the University of Valencia

Important! Solidarity and support for the companions of the newly squatting space La Ingobernable (Valencia)Posted on 2017/05/02 by   from La Rebelión de las Palabras  The Rebellion of WordsI receive in the email and I spread the following statement of the compas who are squatting the space of La Ingobernable, a new space of struggle and meeting open at the University of Valencia, squatting for a week and opened yesterday.

The assembly of the liberated space The Ungovernable communicates that after a week of squatting, and to make public this May 1st, the university has responded decisively, increasing private security (in collaboration with local and national police) until leaving us in a State of siege. This means that no person can leave or enter the building, not allowing us to provide any basic supplies such as water and food.

This is a space that the University abandoned its fate for more than 5 years, under the pretext that it was disabled and was a risk to its occupants. Not long ago the Goerlich foundation of architects denied this version, declaring that the space is in perfect condition to be used and reopened again.Image result for la ingobernable, valencia

 Endesa, Iberdrola and Gas Natural pollute… You Pay

Este correo es seguro.

  from Greenpeace Spain   All together we can continue denouncing the responsibility of the Spanish energy companies,. Endesa, Iberdrola and Gas Natural for their air pollution, for the blockade of renewables and forthe soaring price of electricity, all with Government approval! We are tired of them polluting and us always paying, with our health and with our pockets!

Time to Act!

This morning we have faced up to the almighty Spanish power companies. We appeared at the offices of Endesa, Iberdrola and Gas Natural Fenosa in Madrid, Bilbao and Barcelona respectively, asking them to explain the pollution and its relation with high energy prices. We have done it to defend our environment and for all of us.

27,000 premature deaths in Spain due to pollution.. A report by Ecologistas en Acción reports that 45 million Spaniards are exposed to contaminated air…….

sun taxBecause these three companies are choking us with their emissions, their waste, and with an exorbitant electricity bill as well as depriving us of the right to produce clean energy (due to the infamous Tax on the Sun) and to participate in an energetic model that they have designed to their liking.

New Mutual Aid Hotline Blocks dozens of Evictions, Threats and Toxic Capitalism

 

   Stop evictions..the Raval barrio (Barcelona old city) opens a  mutual support hotline.  .. we’re living a situation of extreme urgency with weekly and often daily evictions, harassment and bullying, an exponential increase of speculative practices, and price rises that are covert expulsions of the population;

We have seen investors buy whole buildings and send thugs with “offers” to tenants to leave, we have seen properties vacated in record time, we have seen the proliferation of ‘Desokupa style companies’ (companies which provide heavies to evict people) specialized in bullying and intimidation, and companies cashing in on  alarms, armored doors, video surveillance, doing an  kind of business with the expulsion of families.
