Update on the situation of Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar
It’s been almost two long years since the anarchists Monica and Francisco were jailed on charges of belonging to a terrorist organization, criminal damage and conspiracy . During this time they have lived in the isolation cells of various Spanish prisons, experiencing the dreaded ‘FIES’ regime and dispersion, but always reaffirming their ideas and illustrating once again the insurmountable gap between the world that anarchists pursue and that imposed by Power.
Two years is a long time. There has been time, for example, to perform two more antiterrorist operations, Pandora and Piñata, connecting the three cases by the acronym GAC-FAI-FRI and charging a total of 25 comrades from different parts of the peninsula with ‘terrorism’.

I condemn people killing each other, violence and the state. I listen to the inner voice of my conscience for freedom and refuse to serve in the military, (I am) for a warless, nationless and borderless world where no one could ever be a soldier, no one could ever kill each others. Before militarism kills us, we should kill militarism’.Continue reading Message from Alper: Anarchist killed in Suruc bomb attack→
