Madrid ~ Two anarchist from the CNT who performed a “puppet show” were detained yesterday afternoon. cnt en defensa de la culturaThey  had been invited by  Madrid city hall to perform a puppet show for the kids for the week of Carnival, in one part of this puppet show they put out a banner thatg says “Gora Alka-ETA” which has double meanings.2469hmg
