The protest took place on Sunday, May 22nd on Sant Jaume plaza in Barcelona with the aim of educating the public about the benefits of a meat-free diet.

The giant meat packaging trays included the label with the words “carne humana” or human meat in Spanish. 

In March, Barcelona declared itself a veggie-friendly city: which includes the writing of a vegetarian guide to the city and encouraging residents to give up meat at least once a week.

Rebecca Rubin has been released and moved into a halfway house! Sentenced in 2014 to five years in federal prison for numerous Earth Liberation Front and Animal Liberation Front actions—including the arsons of Vail Ski Resort and US Forest Industries, as well as liberating horses from and burning down BLM Wild Horse Facilities in California and Oregon.

Rebecca is out of prison almost a year and a half before an expected release date of September, 2017. Glad you’re out, Rebecca!

Don’t forget Rebecca’s birthday on April 18th! (Stay tuned for more information about Rebecca’s situation, mailing address, and ways to provide support.)

Rebecca will likely still want to receive mail at the halfway house. Stay tuned for possible updates on her address.

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.
