Madrid: Fierce Resistance as Neo-Nazi group ‘MSR’ opens ‘white Spanish only’ occupied center (Spain)
Tuesday, September 16th, 2014
Series of big anti-nazi demos against fascist squatters… Anti-fascists seize ‘white Spanish only’ food stall and distribute to all.. Fascist squatters may have owners permission… Squatters movement disowns fascist squat… Police turn blind eye to nazi “okupas” in Tetuan barrio…. Fascist thugs from MSR squat injure local youths.. Media equates nazi’ Social Home’ with long existing popular and anti racist Squat center ‘La Enrededera’ to demand its eviction.
Thousands of neighbours have come out against the nazi squat.
They are not squatters: they are Nazis.
On 18 August, the neo-Nazi group Social Republican Movement (MSR) announced on social media their entry into an abandoned building in Madrid’s Tetuan barrio and their intention to turn it into a social center for ‘those in need’ provided they were white and of Spanish nationality.
Opening such center in the district with the largest migrant population of Madrid and the opposition it generated among neighbors attracted media attention, especially after the massive demonstration against held the same day as opening of the center, on August 30.
Since then, it has been common to see the press referred to the center as a “squatted building” and members of the neo-Nazi group as “squatters” in an error which is then repeated in social networks. The center is equated with the squatting movement, which has always had among its main objectives the recovery of abandoned homes to become social centers and buildings.
This assimilation was false, but the reality mattered little. (more…)

Nazi squat ‘Ramiro Ledesma’ in Madrid burned and painted with slogan-threat. Call today 30th August at 18:00 for antifascist action. Fire was set at the door of the fascist social centre and a slogan written “Get out of our neighborhoods” on the facade. The industrial building was ‘squatted’ early last week by a group of Nazi-Fascist “Republican Social Movement” (MSR), in the district of Tetuan, Madrid, named ‘Ramiro Ledesma’, and it suffered an assault in the early hours of yesterday.
Popular Call to antifascist action

On Saturday, January 11th, the squatted social centre La Gatonera, located on 9, Amistad Street in the district of Carabanchel, Madrid, hosts an info event in solidarity with anarchist prisoners facing long sentences worldwide.
We meet at 18:30 and begin counter-information talk, with the aim to publicize some of the cases of brothers and sisters who are incarcerated in the democratic dungeons of different States for many years already. Following a presentation of the cases of Claudio Lavazza and Gabriel Pombo Da Silva (prisoners in the Spanish State), Marco Camenisch (imprisoned in Switzerland), Thomas Meyer-Falk (captive in Germany), Marie Mason and Eric McDavid (imprisoned in the United States), and José Miguel Sánchez Jiménez (prisoner in Chile), we freely discuss ways to strengthen and extend solidarity ties, also through structures of counter-information and factual support, with prisoners of social war.

To leave no room for doubt…
As anarchists we are in constant confrontation with the State/Capital in all its manifestations; this is a no-brainer. But sometimes, especially when Power falls down on us in all its brutality, glances get confused making strides towards ambiguous and unclear positions. I believe it’s necessary to maintain consistency, and not give rise to victimizing and defeatist discourses or practices. Perhaps now we should take a step back, but always to make five steps forward on the enticing pathway of incertitude to total liberation.
A strong embrace to all anarchist prisoners, held in prison worldwide, especially to Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel and José Miguel Sánchez, with whom I had the opportunity to share experiences on the inside (in Chile).
Uncertain of what will come, yet unhesitating against Power

In the early morning of April 10th, we placed an explosive device in the BBVA on Paseo de Husares in Madrid. Our objective is to do the most harm possible to these temples of money, in order to destroy everything that divides and represses us.
Our hate is stronger than theirs. Struggle is necessary for the fall of the capitalist system, struggle is necessary so that our political prisoners are freed and are liberated from the torturers.
Direct action is the path! Not a step back against the State!

Solidarity with Joaquin, CNT Madrid comrade kidnapped by the police: The years of gangsterism come again (Spain)
Saturday, May 11th, 2013
Courage comrade. This fact is a sign that our movement bothers Power. It is not the first time that such kind of incidents happen. Hope Joaquin is out soon and in good conditions.
The police kidnaps our comrade Joaquin at Union local door
This afternoon several Secret Polices with nothing better to do have been harassing for no reason several colleagues asking for documentation, as they refused to be identified. For a long time the pigs have shown the swagger that comes from carrying a weapon (it is his only strength), wanting to detain the comrade without evidence, they are working for the armed force of the state. The harassment continued to the door of the Union, in 5 Tirso de Molina, Madrid. The secret agents had requested reinforcements, presenting a lot of individuals armed with batons and guns, uniformed.

The house of god fucked up in Madrid
(Thursday, February 7th, 13.00pm)
We have demonstrated that your sanctified dens are vulnerable. The foundations of your Power have trembled by the kilos of our sacrilegious gunpowder, seeking a breach of your civic peace that has been based upon killings and persons locked up for years in the slammer. This is revenge. We have overcome the barrier of fear.
The target of the explosive attack is clear; to strike the Bourbon monarchy in their sacred sites. All their majestuosity is the fruit of oppression, and we, the oppressed, will end with it through insurrectional revolutionary violence. We won’t fall into the trap of waiting to be given the historical conditions. We believe that the conditions are propitious for attack as long as State, Capital and especially a rotten fascist royal family exist. We are determined. We do not wait. We act.
We do not hold the mistaken idea that we will achieve the destruction of all that oppresses us solely through actions such as this one. We are not fooling ourselves. We are not granting ourselves self-complacency. This is propaganda by the deed, which has existed for more than a century among the seditious and conspirators against Power. It is an appeal to war without limits using all our imagination and energy to end with this rotten world.
Fire to the slammer!
Long live Anarchy!

Solidarity with Alfon, only one arrested remaining in jail after the paneuropean strike on 14-N: new Spanish political prisoner.
Spain – kingdom of satraps, thieves and butchers. The number of political prisoners rises in Europe. After the first pan-European strike on 14-N there is still one person in jail. It is not a coincidence, as Alfonso Fernandez, Alfon, like his mother, are well know as activists. His detention was not fortuitous, 100m from his home door, accompanied by his girlfriend. Hours of police interrogatories every two hours, tortures and death threats made by hooded terrorists. And as always police manipulation and political interest. The government can’t break his decision to fight, neither of his family. (more…)
