Letter from Amadeu Casellas, imprisoned anarchist comrade (Catalonia)

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Well, as you know, I continue to be in the prison of Brians I, and I should not be surprised that the fascist torturers continue, those who like to insult, humiliate, harass and beat the prisoners, but in Module I of this prison, what is happening is beyond the unthinkable.

In this module we have a jailer named Pablo and as usual, the prisoners know him as Don Pablo. This individual has several complaints of mistreatment of prisoners, so it is strange that he continues to work in a prison and dealing with people, when he is at least a psychopath.

This jailer works normally on Monday, Tuesday double shift and Wednesday until noon. This past Monday, the 11th, he apparently had one of those psychotic outbreaks because already in the morning he began first with the barber of the module, in front of other prisoners, asking him “Are you dumb or what, what do you think, what is it? Do you want me to break your face?”

Then, near noon, to another prisoner, in this case a fate of the dining room, he said words shouting like the others: “You are shit, you are not worth anything, you are a cockroach, you are nothing and cease to exist”. In the afternoon, and continuing with his vocabulary, there was a prisoner destined for the workshop that was talking on the phone with his family. This prisoner was calling out of the usual schedule because when he comes up from the workshops, at noon later than one o’clock and in the afternoon after seven o’clock, this schedule is agreed after hours with the director of this jail and with the captain of the Module, and I agreed with it myself because those at the workshops could not call during normal business hours.

Barcelona : A Combative May Day Regained (Catalunya)

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

May Day 2011 comes on the heels of two general strikes (29S, in September, called for by all the unions, and 27G, in January, called only by the anarchosyndicalist and radical independent unions). These strikes saw the creation of over half a dozen neighborhood assemblies and a periodic coordination between them, as well as other groups organizing at a citywide level. The confrontational barricades and pickets of the minoritarian unions (CNT and CGT) were vindicated, as were the insurrectionary anarchists’ tactics of attack and idea of an uncontrolled generalization of the struggle.
