El dueño del huerto okupado de la Prosperitat recibe $3.000.000.000 el año de EEUU por ‘servicios militares’

El día 21 de Junio el colectivo del huerto y jardín okupado  en el barrio obrero de la Prosperitat en Barcelona fue amenazado con desalojo, este vez por parte del dueño nuevo, el fondo buitre , Cerberus que pertenece al mega buitre Steve Feinberg. Cerberus está preparando el ‘mobbing’ y el desalojo de miles de pisos comprados en lotes en barrios populares para luego gentrificar y revender a precios exorbitantes.

Sin embargo, a lo mejor para hacer relaciones públicas,  no se ha atrevido meterse con l*s okupas de La Prosperitat. El caso ha sido suspendido temporalmente y el  huerto sigue desafiando el ‘buitre más malvado del mundo’.

El huerto, que ha sido okupado durante 3 años, (antes fue abandonado 10 años) es ”un modelo de funcionamiento libertario” y cuenta con el apoyo unánime del barrio entero, desde el ayuntamiento al gato de la vecina, y es también un ‘Ágora’, un espacio libre para todo tipo de actividades.

El primer intento de desalojo fallado fue por parte del BBVA.. el banco buitre, que, a pasar de ser rescatado con 12 mil millones de dinero público sigue abusando con desalojas masivas, especulación descarada y prácticas nocivas, resistido por compañer*s de la PAH. la Obra Social y los Okupas. BBVA incluso da apoyo a la organización mafiosa llamada Desokupa, formada por sicarios de los desahucios que se dedican a desalojar ilegalmente. El huerto fue vendido como parte de un ‘paquete’ a Cerberus, el fondo de 4,000,000,000 dolares del judio de Nueva York, Steve Feinberg, amigo personal de Donald Trump, . (La palabra ‘Cerberus’ significa un monstruo mítico Griego de 3 cabezas!). En 2018, el Donald Trump nombró al multimillonario  Feinberg para dirigir  la Junta de Inteligencia del Presidente

Con la compra desde Banc Sabadell de dos carteras inmobiliarias valoradas en 3.900 millones de euros por Cerberus Capital Management, (tras una quita del 57%), Santander (1.535 millones y 35.700 activos inmobiliarios) y BBVA (su cartera inmobiliaria por 4.000 millones) , Cerberus ya ha gastado cerca a 20,000 millones en inmobiliaria en España, y tiene un nivel ahora casi igual como Blackstone, el líder de los 32 fondos buitre que comen nuestras casas, con más que 100,000 ‘activos’.

Cerberus gana miles de millones aprovechando la muerte y la miseria como ”contratista” de la CIA en las guerras de Iraq, Siria, Afganistán, etcétera y invierte en propriedad muy barato en Europa, mucha de ella robado del público por no poder pagar hipotecas abusivos. Mucho del  dinero viene de su filial DynCorp como contratista militar, y indirectamente del monopolio financiero de los EEUU que puede ‘imprimir’ hasta $ trillones  porque todos tienen que negociar en dolares.

El dueño y CEO de Cerberus, Steve Feinberg, ha aplaudido públicamente este ‘gran oportunidad en Europa’  para especular o simplemente recoger alquileres para siempre.

Por otro lado, el nuevo gobierno semi-socialista ha introducido una ley para frenar la espiral de precios de los alquileres.

Como advirtió la Fundación Española de Cajas de Ahorros (FUNCAS),’‘ los fondos de capital privado con grandes inversiones han empezado a preocuparse de que muchas familias españolas, que se ganan la vida con trabajos mal pagados, sin seguridad, sean incapaces de pagar las altas rentas de hoy. Muchos de los que no pueden pagar ya han sido desalojados de los apartamentos que son propiedad de los fondos.”.

Erdogan betrays his Mercenaries, letting Al Qaeda/HTS take over Idlib + SAVE LEYLA GUVEN

With the spectacular betrayal and defeat of the two main militias in the Turkish paid NFL coalition the Al Qaeda (HTS) administration has taken control of the province of Idlib,  which right now is an Al Qaeda sharia regime state, sponsored by Turkey.

see below  SAVE LEYLA GÜVEN and 169 more Hunger Strikers ..

While the western media were entertained with the Erdogan/Trump daily pantomime no one seemed to notice that the Tutkish paid mercenaries sent to the Manbij border to ”bury, plunder, rape and occupy”the Rojava Revolution were mainly recently recruited NFL jihadis from Idlib, and not Erdogan’s FSA terrorists still busy destroying Afrin.

When their bases were treacherously attacked from behind by Al Qaeda/HTS the large Al Zenki  faction fled Manbij. But they arrived too late and their resistance was wiped out by HTS.

The good news is that in future Erdogan’s other mercenaries, the FSA, will be wary about him sending them to invade and plunder Rojava…

Their weapons were seized and no other faction or their Turkish sponsors helping or supporting them. According to the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV, more than 200 militants and 20 civilians were killed  during the battle between HTS and the Nour al-Din al-Zenki Movement. Nour al-Din al-Zenki suffered total defeat at the hands of HTS and lost all of its areas in western Aleppo.

Next in line were the biggest faction of the Turkish NFL jihadis,  Ahrar al-Sham  , who were defeated by Al Qaeda in just 3 days.

On January 9, Ahrar al-Sham groups in northwestern Hama surrendered and dissolved themselves under pressure from al-Qaeda/Hayat Tahrir al-Sham , according to local sources.  Ahrar al-Sham was the core of the new Turkish funded coalition of militant groups known as the National Front for Liberation (NFL).

However again neither other NFL factions nor Turkey intervened to support Ahrar al-Sham during the battle in northwestern Hama.

HTS launched an attack on the remaining positions of the Ahrar al-Sham Movement in the northwestern Hama countryside. The Turkish-backed faction surrendered within hours and agreed to withdraw. According to pro-opposition media the defeated Ahrar al-Sham members will get an opportunity to withdraw to the region of Afrin after they hand over their heavy weapons to HTS

   Leader of Syrian branch of al-Qa’ida (rebranded HTS), known as abu-Muhammad al-Jolani, supports Turkey in attacking Syrian Kurds. The Islamofascist axis AKP//HTS/ISIS has been planning to subjugate or exterminate Kurds and others who stand in their way.


Then  Erdogan forced the demoralised NFL facrions to sign the agreement giving administrative control to Al Qaeda/HTS, as many fled into the already terrorist infested Turkish occupied Afrin

So to cut a long story short Al Qaeda has triumphed and is expanding out of Idlib into Hama,  Aleppo and Lattakia, leaving Assad and the Russians a bit confused.

Opposition websites agree that Turkey has cynically and murderously betrayed and destroyed its own paid allies, Al Zenki and  Ahrar al-Sham, opening the door to a general attack by Syria/SAA and Russia on Al Qaeda/HTS (because all sides have labelled HTS as terrorists while the Turkish backed groups had some defense).

Was Erdogan wrong footed by Trump’s sudden withdrawal declarations into sending his mercenaries into a trap? ??

Maybe yes this was what happened,  it was important perhaps for Turkey to make the preparations to attack Rojava real and concrete . One report suggested they hoped to get the vital  ‘airspace bombing permission’ for a new invasion from the US and Russians by appearing that the invasion was going ahead anyway.

But things are never as they seem ..  Some very suspicious circumstances..
  • Turkey has a thriving business with Idlib in the laughably named ‘demilitarized Zone’ (DMZ) via the Hatay/Turkey border. Al Qaeda/HTS is now a far-right religious administration with its own social services.
  • Turkey has expanded its ten bases in the Idlib ‘DMZ’ but made no effort to enforce the terms of the agreement.
  • Erdogan is supplying arms to his mercenaries (now seized by Al Qaeda HTS) but also all kinds of supplies, international aid, and trade, all taxed by the Al Qaeda/HTS regime which controls road access here and elsewhere.
  •  NFL mercenaries have been complaining recently in online comments that their pay has been cut (partly caused by the collapse of the Turkish Lira in which they are paid). One comment claimed ”Turkey is paying double to Al Qaeda/HTS militants” causing mass defection of desperately poor rebels.
  • So what will happen next?

Perhaps Turkey will now defend Idlib as a client state, hoping it will be one more jewel in the racist, misogynist, jihadist ‘New Ottoman Empire’.

Reports suggest the Al Qaeda takeover has caused  fear in Idlib of an all out attack by the massive SAA Syrian army which is entrenched around the east and south of the area.

The chorus of demands, no doubt orchestrated by Turkey, is resuming, asking that the Turkish army intervene to stop the ‘evil Assadis’ committing  ‘a shocking massacre of civilians’ with their ‘poison gas attacks’.

An agreed invasion or ‘increase on troops to enforce the DMZ agreement’ could make Idlib forever a Turkish Empire protectorate, and set the stage for the ”cleansing” of Rojava where Turkey promises to ”bury the Kurds in their ditches”.

Erdogan already has 10 bases in Idlib. He, or his script writing team,  are experts in threats and blackmail, (put the words ‘Erdogan Threatens’ in google and you find many pages of threats!) with ”leverage” over Russia due to key pipelines, nuclear and arms sales, etc. Leverage over Syria as he already occupies and is ‘turkifying’ Afrin, Jarablus, Azaz and Al Bab. Turkey also has blackmail ammunition  over the EU with the oft repeated threat to let loose a new flood of refugees. And over the US with the threat of leaving NATO, cancelling arms agreements, etc.

Hopefully despite all the threats and Machiavellian maneuvering, Erdogan’s plans will come unstuck again. But the increasing evidence that Turkey sacrificed its own supposedly ‘moderate’ mercenary allies to be wiped out by Al Qaeda show again what  level of War Criminals are at work.



SAVE LEYLA AND 169 MORE HUNGER STRIKERS

Jailed Kurdish opposition politician Leyla Güven has reached a critical condition and has been unable to see her lawyer for four days due to health problems caused by her long-running hunger strike, Turkish news site Diken reported.

Güven, who is both the co-chair of the Democratic Society Congress, an umbrella organisation for Kurdish groups, and a deputy for the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), is imprisoned pending trial in Diyarbakır, south-east Turkey after being arrested in January 2018 for criticising Turkey’s military operation against Kurdish militias in northwest Syria.

The Kurdish deputy is one of nine from the HDP who are currently held behind bars in Turkey, including the party’s former co-chair, Selahattin Demirtaş. The party is particularly vulnerable to prosecution due to perceived links tying it to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), an outlawed group that has fought Turkish security forces for Kurdish self-rule since the 1980s.

Day 68 of Leyla Güven’s Hunger Strike in Turkish prison. Her health has rapidly deteriorated & is now at life threatening stage. Silence is no longer viable, in fact, it is complicity at this stage.


*************
Together we will make 27 and 28 January two days of global resistance against Turkish fascism. Together we will intervene in the numbing routine of war and oppression, expressing our solidarity with various forms of action. Together we will show that this revolution is not alone!
Let us stand shoulder to shoulder against fascism!
Long live the international solidarity!
The revolution in Rojava will be victorious! Fascism will be crushed!

Andalusia: Feminists leads the Left in mass Antifascist Demos Tuesday

The left takes the streets against the change of government in Andalusia

Feminist collectives, LGTBI, Podemos, IU and the SAT are  promoting mobilizations in Andalusia before the investiture of a rightwing coalition including the new fascist party Vox, on Tuesday 15th and 16 Jan..

16 de enero: Llamamiento a rodear el Parlamento de Andalucía el día de la investidura

 The news of the despicable Vox in power generated rage on social networks and sparked calls for multiple demonstrations and rallies on the investiture dates, on January 15 and 16 .

Podemos and Izquierda Unida  parties yesterday joined the feminist calls to demonstrate and encouraged their respective militants and supporters to attend the events planned next Tuesday: a concentration at 12.00 in the Andalusian Parliament (Seville) and provincial concentrations at 7:00 p.m. in different points of the Andalusian cities.

The mobilization is driven by a large group of feminist organizations that on Wednesday presented a manifesto for what they consider an “attack” by the party led by Santiago Abascal, with its claim to repeal the Law of Gender Violence.

Support demonstrations and actions have also been called in towns and cities across Iberia.

Under the slogans ‘Not a step back in equality’ or ‘Our rights are not negotiated’, posters in purple and blue tones have been distributed quickly through social networks to gather as many people as possible on January 15.

Leaders like Antonio Maíllo, from IU (communist), or Teresa Rodríguez, from Podemos( Left) and candidate from the confluence of both formations, Adelante Andalucía, yesterday supported these initiatives and urged citizens to support  feminist mobilizations.

The LGTBI movement also joins the feminist demonstrations in rejection of the reaction and regression in the conquered rights that they believe the pact between PP and Cs with Vox will bring.

But in addition the Andalusian Union of Workers (SAT) called yesterday a protest called ‘Surround the Parliament’ for the day of the celebration of the full investiture in which the candidate will foreseeably be voted on next January 16 .

In principle, the union has requested authorization for the possible days – the date is still unknown – and aims to surround the Parliament with a human chain, the SAT said in a statement.

This protest will take place from 18:00 hours on the day of the investiture under the slogan ‘Andalusia is not for sale’, with the intention of preventing the change of government with its aim to launch “new attacks” against social rights and democratic institutions and public services, with privatizations and cuts in social policies.

The union indicated that the new government will also mean “a threat to women’s rights and policies of equality and a promotion of sexist violence” and invited other anti-fascist and feminist groups to protest, since theirs will be a “complementary” mobilization » to all the other demos on that day.

REACTION OF THE PATRIARCHY

Both García and Navascués agree that one of the keys to the rise of the far right is as “very clear reaction to the 8M Womens General Strike.”.

A famous quote by Simone de Beauvoir has gone viral in recent days. A phrase from the forerunner of feminism that says: “Do not ever forget that a political, economic or religious crisis will suffice for the rights of women to be questioned again.

These rights are never taken for granted. You must remain vigilant throughout your life. ” In this line Dolores García deepens by stating that “any gap that is opened globally, in the political or economic space, will cause a reinforcement of patriarchy” to explain the current situation.

“Patriarchy becomes very angry when feminism takes center stage, not only here, but in Latin America, all over the world,” something that connects García with the economic system because “the neoliberal model needs women to do care of life work, to corner ourselves around the family, bringing up kids”.

The new Family Counseling or the anti-abortion plan in the PP-Vox agreement are other measures denounced by the Andalusian feminist movement.

THE LGTBI MOVEMENT ADDS

With the same sense of “aggression” to their rights, the Andalusian LGTBI community has joined the mobilizations in the provinces and in the capital. Rafael Gil, president of the association Delta LGBTIQ of the Sierra de Cádiz, calls LGTBI people to second the mobilization.

“They have negotiated with our rights, they have been currency on the table, it seems a shame,” he complains. Gil is firm in the need that “every time the ultra right in our autonomous community touches us, even if only in words, they must have us confronting them, on the street.”

In addition, the historic Grenadian transsexual activist Kim Pérez has announced a hunger strike in protest. “We will not stop being visible in front of this danger to our rights, which we thought was already extinguished, in my case, through a hunger strike, which will represent the anguish that will be renewed now, as long as the new leaders do not declare the will to respect us”.

FUTURE OF THE FIGHT

Beyond the 15th, the Andalusian feminist movement is thinking of ways to counteract the messages of the extreme right. In the opinion of Dolores García, one of the keys is “to work much more in the neighborhoods, because sometimes we do not reach those towns where women or the poor are most vulnerable.

We have to get to those spaces to counteract the discourses of fear that lock up women in the house. ” On the other hand, Alicia Navascués thinks that it is not enough to protect the conquered laws but to denounce “very dangerous speeches of the Citizens Party that seek the commodification of the woman’s body, such as the legalization of ‘rent bellies’ or of prostitution”.

However, both are optimistic. “In the face of such an attack, there is going to be a strengthening, uniting different feelings of feminism,” says Garcia. “From now on we’re going to have a unified, strong feminist movement. We’re going to confront them, and the legislative change for the worse is not going to happen..”.
