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

Bullfights used to impose Patriarchy and Nationalism

Don’t expect to see a bullfight when you trip to Barcelona, the last stadium is closed and the ”sport” banned. In fact for years it was mainly kept going by the tourist industry.

The popular bumper sticker in Madrid is the bull, representing, for the Catalans,  cruel bullying disguised as ‘heroic’ sexist posturing.

Barcelona  cars on the other hand feature the Catalan donkey, symbolizing just a nice but stubborn animal, and maybe the ability to laugh at themselves.

In San Sebastian of the Kings, (real name Donostia in Basque) the battle against bullfighting is in full swing.  Last week there was a new demo against, which was attacked by pro-bullfight thugs, sending one girl to hospital. (see report below) Continue reading Bullfights used to impose Patriarchy and Nationalism

Biggest ever Fast-Food Worker Strike in 6 Continents

This is a great new beginning. International strikes are a brilliant way to stop outsourcing industry to places with even worse slave labour conditions. With world strikes we can stop the crazy concentration of wealth, and stop the abuse of nationalism to manipulate us against each other.

Support the worldwide fast-food strikers!

Workers braved the dismal weather on the morning of May 15th to demand higher wages and the right to unionize at McDonald’s and other fast-food restaurants. (Amien Essif)

It’s 6 a.m. in Chicago, and the bitingly cold, drizzly weather seems oblivious to the fact that it’s May 15th. And yet, a crowd of more than 100 people wearing red ponchos has formed outside of a McDonald’s restaurant downtown, where they’re dancing to mariachi music. fast food stike 5
