On May 13, 2019, two comrades were arrested in Madrid; their houses and the squatted anarchist space La Emboscada were searched by the police. Since then, they have been awaiting trial under the accusation of terrorism, being investigated in relation to different actions against repressive bodies, banks, political parties and real estate.
We do not care if they are innocent or guilty, if they are criminals or terrorists. We do not want to legitimize their spectacle, nor a judicial and political system that the State has created for it’s own interests. The only definition that we recognize, and in which we recognize ourselves in complicity, is that of being anarchists. Because we fight to recover our life and our autonomy against this authoritarian system.
For us, the best way to show solidarity is to continue with the struggles we share, that is why so many companions, beaten daily by the system, are present in them and inspire them. A wink of complicity, be they criminals, terrorists or simply anarchists.
Their cages don’t stop us

Brochure from squatters and resisting spots in Madrid, Athens and Berlin
This publication is a compilation of texts that emerges from the discussions and the work we started in the wake of the event “A sea of possibilities in the concrete desert. Territory, city and insurrection” that happened in Madrid during June 2019 in Local Emboscada and Local Anarquista Motin. Is the product of a joint work of some comrades from Berlin and Madrid, that does not finish with the publication of this pages and pretends to extend the discussion that we have shared.
What does it mean to take territory against the State and Capitalism? How can we take it through our struggles? How does it work domination in the territories that we inhabit? Does it mean our way of living in a territory a conflict with the system?

Precautionary eviction of La Emboscada
Thursday, December 19th.
We write this statement from La Emboscada (Tetuán, Madrid), to inform that the last December 17th a judge ordered our precautionary eviction from a denunciation made by one of the owners of our Anarchist Squatted Space La Emboscada.
According to this notification, the eviction could be very close, in less than twenty natural days. Considering this information, we decide to fight with all our capacities to stop this eviction. So we call to the eviction day for a concentration in the afternoon, at 20h and we count with your support. The place of the concentration wont be public until the last moment, so we encourage you to be aware.
We decided not to remain silent while we see tens and tens of eviction processes both to living spaces and social centers. We decide not to give up neither deal with those people that want to defend their private property over everything, because we know that private property only looks for the individual profit of some, and we know that the State defends and supports this old class enemies that are already known.
We know that this case is not an isolated one (we count with all the previous facts happened in the last year) but it responds to a functioning and normal capitalist structure. We know that the owner is not the devil who escapes the norm or the common sense accepted by most citizens. So we have decided to approach it as a conflict more to face and with all the motivation and mutual aid that we could get all together with those who understand and show solidarity with the struggle against Capitalism, the law and the State.
We decide to defend squats as a tool to attack private property. This attack that every time becomes more difficult, but we only think in creating new formulas to get that they don’t bury our will to continue fighting and squatting. We know that we can’t do this without you. We know that solidarity and direct action against speculation are our better weapons.
So we encourage you to be aware to the next callings, to come to the space and the possible events that we could organize, defending the squats.
Against the reinforcement of laws to our dis-articulation and criminalization, now more than ever: Squat! Against gentrification and speculation: Squat and resist!
