On Saturday, December 1, we take to the streets in defense of Occupation.In the face of repression and the wave of evictions we do not retreat, on the contrary, we take a step forward.
Saturday December 1 .. All on the streets! No eviction without response.
Spread the word and Act!
The occupation of abandoned sites for self-management of our lives has been a reality for more than two decades in Barcelona.
This was our response to the need for social spaces and the lack of accessible housing in the cities. In the last year, and like other times, we are experiencing a wave of repression of our projects: ccupied Social Centers such as La Clandestina, REA, Ateneu la Pua … and homes such as Ca La Trava, Kubo, Kantonada, Montmany 3 … have been evicted.
It’s not the first time I say it: there are people who only need one book, the Bible to explain the world (…) To me, it happens to me, I must confess it, with ”The Echo of the Steps” the memoirs of Juan García Oliver. An anarchist waiter who arrived at the Minister of Justice in the middle of the war.
”Durruti and I went to the request of President Lluís Companys. It was surrounded by army officers. When he saw us, opening his arms, he exclaimed: “My children, people of the CNT, today you are the only hope of Catalonia! Forget everything and save the freedoms of our people! “
– Is that all, Companys? I said. I thought you wanted us here to give us weapons.
-I do not have any weapons to give you. I just wanted to wish you lots of luck! ” he replied
(note: The Catalan president Luis Companys later ran out of luck himself and was executed by a fascist terrorist firing squad)
This is one of the hundred of priceless scenes in The Echo of the Steps, one of the books that have influenced my brain more powerfully. They are the memories of a Catalan anarchist.

Representatives of platform ‘Universities for a Republic’, at a press conference (ACN)
The unitary platform “Universities for the Republic” has called a two-day strike in Catalan universities – Thursday, 28, and Friday, 29 – to denounce what they consider “the judicial and police prosecution we suffer from the Spanish State and the hidden state of emergency that has been installed in Catalonia “.
Catalan Police have been ordered by the Central Govt to seal off the over 2000 polling stations before Sunday and charge those responsible for allowing them, many of them school principles.
The local police have neither the capacity nor the will to break up the expected mass pickets, and National and paramilitary forces are being deployed.
The Student Platform spokesman, Jordi Vives, has demanded that next Sunday, he can vote.“That on October 1 the referendum can be held in full normality in order to start the path to the constituent process.”
latest news: The Spanish State has taken direct control of the local ‘Mossos’ Catalan Police to help stop the Referendum on Independence. The police unions have not yet responded but rumour has it that many will ‘take the day off’.
Dockworkers boycott Spanish police ships sent against Catalan referendum
By Alejandro López in Spain Dockworkers in Catalonia’s two main ports, Barcelona and Tarragona, are refusing supply services to vessels carrying riot police and paramilitary Civil Guard units sent by Spain’s Ministry of Interior to crush the secessionist referendum.
This comes amid a rapidly escalating political crisis in Spain caused by the central government repression of the independence referendum called by Catalan separatist forces for October 1.
“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.
Attack on a tire of a Tourist Bus highlighted in Headlines around the whole World
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? Or could the rumors of the ‘Media GAL’ of the State be relevant, with a police ‘Un-limited Budget Available’ which includes possible ‘Infiltracions en … entitats sobiranistes’.? (Infiltrations into Independentist Circles) Tourism is unpopular but brings in 25% of local income . see below.
´Barcelona reports.. #ProuTaxesAbusives Students set up camp, closing the main Via Laietana for 3 hours before being brutally evicted by 300 cops at midnight… A few days later a large LGBTI demo reclaimed the night, marching round the cityand resisting all attacks. #CridemLaNit.
by JESÚS RODRÍGUEZ at La Directa.(summarized Translation The Free ) A contingent of 300 Catalan Riot Police evicted more than 200 students who wanted to camp in front of the headquarters of the Secretariat for Universities in Barcelona.
They were demand a reduction of 30% of university fees and masters degrees, some claims already approved by the Parliament of Catalonia but not put into practice. That’s why hundreds of demonstrators resorted yesterday Via Laietana -in the context of the second day of student mobilizations .
The prosecution requested five years prison each for a boycott campaign of the dept. store chain El Corte Inglés, which are upmarket stores histrorically controlled by far right anti-union commercial interests.
The three militants of the CNT Barcelona are accused of crimes of obstruction of justice and coercion in a boycott campaign started in the fall of 2015, which was in solidarity against the trial of two anarchists for picketing incidents at one of the stores back in the general strike of 29 March 2012.

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.

Ante estos hechos, son fundados los temores para pensar que van a empezar ya con su negocio inmoral que promueve los crímenes que están arrasando el clima y la biosfera mundial, envenenando el aire que respiramos.
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.
