About the two detained anarchists in Madrid (Spain)
Last Monday, October 29, the Information Brigade went to the houses of two anarchist comrades in Madrid to arrest them. They are charged with the crime of damages caused by the burning of a Bankia ATM in the Vallekas neighborhood during the week of action on the anniversary of the arrest of Comrade Lisa, who is currently in the custody of the German state sentenced to 7 years and accused of robbing a bank.
It is not the first nor the last time that the State represses any indication of direct anarchist action. The State has been improving its repressive machinery for some time. Proof of this is the proliferation of surveillance cameras (as in this case) and the taking of DNA and the coordination with other police bodies at European level (as in the case of Lisa or those hunted and imprisoned for the events at the [Hamburg] G20, which had its last chapter in the Spanish State on October 19 with house searches of comrades in Palencia and Madrid).
These arrests, in the way they have been carried out, mean a change of repressive strategies away from the media’s spectacularization of past police operations against anarchist environments (Pandora, Piñata, Pandora II, Ice). The goal is the same, however: intimidation, fear and the consequent paralysis of the struggle.
Faced with this strategy, as anarchists, we must remain strong and continue the struggle and not lose those tools that make anarchism a dangerous movement for the State and all its forms and tools of domination. If the State represses after being attacked, it must be hit harder, the objective is to continue the struggle and that solidarity extends to all points of the territory. If yesterday a bank burned, tomorrow will burn a hundred.
Little matter, “innocence” or “guilt” of the compañerxs, these terms are categories of the justice system that we do not recognize as anarchists.
Solidarity with Lisa, those hunted and imprisoned of the G20, Scripta Manent and other comrades around the globe who are kidnapped by the State.
In our revolutionary memory live Santiago Maldonado and comrade Zhlobitsky Mikhail who died on October 31 in a bomb attack against the FSB (heiress of the KGB).
YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO STOP THE PASSION FOR FREEDOM
FREEDOM TO LISA
FIRE TO THE BANKS
DEATH TO THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY
