“From the National Confederation of Labor, CNT we show our utmost grief, indignation, confusion and pain at the attack suffered this afternoon in Barcelona.
Once again it has been the people, the civilian population, the ordinary people, who have suffered the consequences of wars that are not theirs. Once again the people put back the suffering and the dead.
This time the location has changed, the place has changed. This time has been hit the heart of Barcelona. But again the objective has been the same: the civilian population unarmed and innocent.
Whether in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, London, Paris, Berlin, the Mediterranean or in the fences of Melilla, we return to becoming propitiatory victims, in collateral damages of a war between sides that we do not know, that does not repair media or Limits to reach their goals, who does not know the meaning of the word “love.” Gangs for whom power is above people and life. Gangs that do not represent us. Continue reading Solidarity with Barcelona victims: No God. No State, No Caliphate→
The Security Guards at the Barcelona airport continue their partial strike into shocking oppression. Although today the situation has improved thousands of people have had to wait more than two hours to be searched in line this week.
25% of Barcelona’s income comes from tourists and there are suspicions that the state is behind a wave of attempts to sabotage the industry (among others) that coincides with the referendum on independence.Striking workers have been negotiating withEulen‘s leadership which has shown little interest in meeting workers’ resistance to wage cuts, fueling rumors in Catalonia that something more sinister is going on.The Generalitat has always unsuccessfully demanded that the management of Barcelona Airport be passed from Madrid to Catalonia ..Strangely, Eulen is in charge of private security at more than 30 airports throughout Spain, however, El Prat de Barcelona is the only airport that experiences an industrial action involving its workers this summer.
The PP has repeatedly threatened to punish Catalonia financially for its separatist aspirations.

Last week young people from ARRAN slightly damaged a tourist bus in Barcelona as part of the campaign against the saturation of tourists in the city .. The news went viral in blazing headlines all over the world, promoted by the far-right Spanish media. But is it mere coincidence that this dangerous anti-tourist revolt finally erupts just before the Independence Referendum, after so many years of enduring them?

Los contratos de GNF están firmados para 20 años empezando en Agosto/Sept. del 2017. Pero hemos averiguado que algunos cargamentos llegarán antes como en periodo de pruebas. La destinación queda en secreto pero será probablemente al puerto de Barcelona que tiene mucho espacio de almacenamiento (o a cualquier de las 7 plantas de regasificación).
GNF ha fletado ya al menos 4 barcos tipo ‘LNG Knutsen’ para hacer el negocio. Uno de ellos, el nuevo ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, acaba de salir de Algeciras (30 de marzo, 2017) rumbo a Sabine Pass en Louisiana, dónde se recoge el gas en forma de LNG para el contrato de Gas Natural. Esta información viene del sitio Vessel Finder AQUI…ver destination. Llegada a Sabine Pass 20 de Abril.

Si es así que el metanero La Mancha Knutsen va a recoger el primero cargamento de gas de fracking para GNF, llegará a España entre el día 10 y día 20 de Mayo, que nos deja tiempo para averiguar a qué puerto viene.
