Early in the morning, a large group of activists has occupied the abandoned luxury hotel Marques de la Ensenada de Valladolid with the aim that the building will never again be a space dedicated to speculation.

Around a dozen activists have been occupying the building in secret for a week, although it has not been until today when they have publicized their action.

 

“A group in Valladolid have decided to take a step forward and recover for the public life of the city this space that is behind us, and we have baptized itr with the name of La Molinera  (The Mill).

We have been working for several months to materialize this project that today, finally, we can present publicly, considering, with all the evidence on our part, that both institutions and owners have abandoned their duties in the preservation of this heritage space, cataloged as an Asset of Cultural Interest by the Junta de Castilla y León in 1991.

With more than 160 years of history, this was the old flour factory of La Perla, linked to agricultural and industrial activity around the Canal de Castilla, which survived episodes as relevant as the Bread Riots and resurfaced from its ashes after a devastating fire in 1912.

Borders: The Global Caste System

By  CrimethInc. Ex-Workers Collective     The border is not just a wall or a line on a map. It’s a power structure, a system of control. The border is everywhere that people live in fear of deportation, everywhere migrants are denied the rights accorded citizens, everywhere human beings are segregated into included and excluded.

The border divides the whole world into gated communities and prisons, one within the other in concentric circles of privilege and control. At one end of the continuum, there are billionaires who can fly anywhere in private jets; at the other end, inmates in solitary confinement.

As long as there is a border between you and those less fortunate than you, you can be sure there will be a border above you, too, keeping you from the things you need. And who will tear down that second border with you, if not the people separated from you by the first? Continue reading Free Download pdf: No Wall They Can Build… US Border Guide

Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

 Etractivism is a war against the people

By Renata Bessi and Santiago Navarro F  at  Avispa Midia

The Chinantec people, inhabitants of the Cajonos River basin in the north of the state of Oaxaca, Mexico, are carrying out an organizational process throughout their entire territory, the Chinantla, against economic projects that seek to commodify nature as a whole.

They are megaprojects such as mining, hydroelectric dams, highways, conservation projects, and, more recently, hydrocarbons. It is not a coincidence Chinantla is considered a priority of economic interest for the Mexican government. It houses the third largest tropical rainforest in Mexico. After the Lacandona jungle in Chiapas, and the Chimalapas in Oaxaca, it is the best preserved and one of the richest in biodiversity.

Unsustainable Extractivism destroys our land and water Continue reading Indigenous Communities unite to fight Megaprojects in Chinantla Mountains, Oaxaca

It’s Time to Banish the Police and Burn the Prisons: here’s the Proof

trumpflagI could write about the newest murder committed by the police, could write about the newest life lost behind bars, but what would be the point? Like cancer and massive debt these things hold no shock value for us anymore.
We’ve come to expect them in our everyday life, stare blankly as body after body goes into a cell or into the ground. We argue about “prison reform” and “better training” yet still the blood flows. Above all, all maintain that while it’s not pretty police and prisons are necessary for any society.These people are, in the parlance of our times, spineless and servile little worms who are hideously, grotesquely wrong. Continue reading It’s Time to Banish the Police and Burn the Prisons: here’s the Proof

Who Are the Anarchists?: Why Resistance Is Coming from Below

It\'s Going Downvia   IT’S GOING DOWN  … Anarchist Movement untitled

America is in the throes of crisis. Polling as the least popular starting President in history, Donald Trump has taken the reins and intends to force his agenda on the world by brute force. Alongside him, outright white supremacists are coming out of the woodwork, convinced that their time has arrived.

 Millions who once counted on the Democratic Party are losing faith in the entire political system. Can anything be done to halt the rise of tyranny? Continue reading Who Are the Anarchists?: Why Resistance Is Coming from Below

Bring a Walking Stick: New festival to Defend Free Area in France: Oct 8th

defendzad8oct2016Notre-Dame-des-Landes (France): Defend the ZAD – a Call for International Solidarity

For over 50 years, farmers and locals have resisted the building of a new airport for the French city of Nantes (which by the way already has one). Now in these rich fields, forests and wetlands, which multinational Vinci want to cover in concrete, an experiment in reinventing everyday life in struggle is blossoming.images

Radicals from around the world, local farmers and villagers, citizen groups, trade unionists and naturalists, refugees and runaways, squatters and climate justice activists and many others, are organising to protect the 4000 acres of land against the airport and its world.

Government officials have coined this place “a territory lost to the republic”. Its occupants have named it: la ZAD  (Zone À Défendre), zone to defend. Continue reading Bring a Walking Stick: New festival to Defend Free Area in France: Oct 8th
