Operation Pandora: Words of Monica Caballero from Brieva Prison (Spain)

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from Contrainfo, edited by 325)

If I could choose a different life, I would not change it for anything.

I perfectly remember the feeling that invaded me when I began to
question authority, I remember the many contradictions and questions. In
this discovery of ideas I found many people that made material practices
of the ideas in their libraries, publications, ateneos, etc… in their
everyday life … to live ideas here and now. It did not take long for me
to think that I would like to do the same.

I remember the anguish I felt when I heard that there were comrades
imprisoned for putting into practice the ideas of freedom ideas; brothers
of ideas in all corners of the world in the jaws of the panoptic beast. That
distressed feeling never changed, but it is accompanied by the gesture
of solidarity.

We are many, the anarchists on the other side of the great wall, on
Tuesday December 16 this list became more extensive.

Tentacles of power dropped into anarchists spaces, libertarían ateneos,
squatted house and homes of several anarchists of Catalonia and Madrid.
Hunting and capturing eleven comrades, of these, seven were imprisoned,
accused of belonging to an armed group of terrorist nature. It is not a
coincidence that the detainees are part of my immediate environment, indeed,
more than half of them frequently visit me in jail. The judicial-police
mallet has punished solidarity.

I can not keep silent before such misery, the state´s repressive revenge
borders on delirium. The media (spokesmen for the rulers) talk about bosses
and subordinates, I stress to them and anyone who has any doubt, we are
anti-authoritarian, no one is above me, nor am I above anyone!

Spaces attacked in Catalunya were not arbitrary, firstly, Kasa de la
Muntanya is an important squatting symbol, with its 25 years away from
the capitalist logic which have made its contribution to many generations
of dissidents to this system of terror. The Libertarian Ateneos and
anarchist spaces that were hit have never hidden their ideals,
providing a fertile ground for sowing the seeds of freedom.

The costs in this struggle for the recovery of our lives is very high,
nobody said it would be easy, but undoubtedly if I could choose a
different life, I would not change it for anything. In this fight
against domination there are no cages or walls to silence our voices,
but without you, comrades, it will only become echoes.

If you, recently jailed loved comrades, can read these words, I tell you
that I am certain you will remain incorruptible and rise to the occasion
as you have always done.

I remember every time I read or heard that solidarity is a necessary
weapon for anarchists. Today I hope that those memories come true…
… to turn our ideas into action.

At least 15 people were arrested during raids in Spain on December 17th for being part of an “anarchist terror organization” in what the Spanish government is calling ‪#‎OperacionPandora‬.

At quarter past five, an operation consisting of Mossos d’Esquadra mobilized to carry out an operation against the Libertario movement. So far, the Mossos have raided the Kasa de la Montanya, the Libertarian Ateneo de Sant Andreu, the Anarchist Ateneo de Poble Sec and several private homes.

On orders from the Spanish National Court, in an operation ordered by Judge Javier Gómez Bermúdez, the agents have raided the Kasa de la Muntanya, a squat which this year celebrates twenty five years of occupation. They busted the main entrance of the house to gain access while a police helicopter with spotlights hovered over the building. The twenty inhabitants of the house had to retreat into the gym whilst the police forced entry into the building. At the time of the police raid, the building had two children aged five and six years. The Mossos separated one of the kids from his father on the ground floor.

The police confiscated all mobile phones, laptops and computer devices that were found on the premises. Agents seized all types of documentation, while numerous electric home workshop tools were also confiscated in order to help the police construct their narrative.

About fifty people installed a roadblock on Travessera de Dalt, in a spontaneous act of solidarity with the Kasa de la Muntanya, until riot police dispersed them a few minutes after eight o’clock. Subsequently the solidarity group moved to the Plaza Lesseps and called for more protests.

From the outside of the house located in the neighborhood of Gràcia district Salut, witnesses heard several firecrackers and said they could see in lights of several flashlights inside the building. The police operation is made ​​up of agents from the Information Division of the Mossos d’Esquadra, accompanied by a large number of members of the Mobile Brigade which, among other tasks, formed a perimeter around the whole area and denied any access to the home.
