Cambridge: Solidarity Graffiti with Eneko Gogeaskoetxea, Basque Anti-Imperialist Fighter of ETA (UK)
325 receives and transmits:
We are autonomous individuals in Cambridge who wish to react to the state-seizure and international extradition of a Cambridge resident, Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui, who is accused of being an anti-imperialist fighter of Basque independence group ETA.
E. Gogeaskoetxea was arrested in July (’11) and now faces extradition to Spain where he faces 8 arrest warrants alleging a series of actions, such as attacks on a police station and an airport, as well as plotting to kill the Spanish King Juan Carlos II in 1997. When the state takes hostages of the social/revolutionary struggle, the words ‘innocent’ and ‘guilty’ do not mean anything to us.
We are anarchists and while we criticize through words and action political leftism and militaristic, national-focused revolutionary organisation, we stand alongside other oppressed people in asymmetric war with our enemy the state and the elite classes. The British authorities are planning on handing over E. Gogeaskoetxea to the Spanish state – the same Spanish state that has locked up and murdered many Basque fighters, anarchists, anti-fascists, autonomous and subversive elements.
In the isolation/torture cells of Spanish democratic-fascism, as all over Europe and all the worlds states, they intend to disappear and silence revolutionary consciousness by trying to disappear and silence those in struggle. We affirm that violent struggle against the class oppressors is necessary, whether in the territories occupied by UK PLC or the Spanish state, and will not let the police snatch a man from the street, accused of being an enemy of the state and disappear them into democracy’s prisons.
For international anti-capitalist struggle.
Innocent or guilty – Solidarity with Eneko Gogeaskoetxea!
Against state extradition and counter-insurgency – The State is the Terrorist!
