PDF: MANIFIESTO HUELGA
Esperamos que todxs os encontréis lo mejor posible, dada la nueva situación de “pandemia” y Estado de Alarma, con el siguiente recorte de libertades, que nos está tocando vivir.
Por aquí hemos estado dándole vueltas a cómo podemos responder de algún modo ante esta nueva coyuntura política, económica y social que afecta a todo el mundo en su globalidad.
Y nos ha parecido acertado, para empezar, sumarnos a la convocatoria internacional de huelga de alquileres e hipotecas, convocada para el día 1 de Abril. (more…)

-Que vuelvan las huelasgas. Que proliferen las okupaciones. Que lleguen los saqueos
-Sobre el ataque a nuestros lazos
-Crónica de motines, fugas y sucesos en las cárceles y CIES a causa de la crisis del coronavirus
-¿Volver a dónde? ¿Volver a qué?
Hacia aguas desconocidas
Llevamos más de una semana en estado de emergencia. La capacidad destructiva del virus no es algo ya cuestionable. Pero nos gustaría
hacer unos apuntes sobre sus consecuencias no clínicas y sobres sus orígenes.

On the night of February 24 to 25, we set fire to an electric car from the Car2Go company.
The new models of mobility and urbanism that are proposed to us by States and companies, in this case by way of “Carsharing” or “Smart Cities”, are part of a capitalist propaganda that seeks to whitewash the image of the hostile, devastating and inhuman capitalism of always. However, they are only an extension of the industrial disaster that perpetuates miserable conditions of existence that make its development and profit possible.
We do not want to reform capitalism, we want to destroy it. We don’t need any more reason to attack.
War on the State, capitalism and the daily annihilation of our lives.
Update on the situation of the persecuted comrades in Madrid, for the attack on a Bankia ATM (Spain)
Saturday, February 22nd, 2020
The persecution of anarchist solidarity.
On October 29, 2018 in Madrid, two anarchist companions were detained, in their respective homes, on charges of property damage.
Specifically they are accused of damaging with fire a Bankia ATM on April 11, 2018 in solidarity with the anarchist prisoner Lisa, who was convicted of a bank robbery in Aachen (Germany).
The companions went to court on October 30, 2018 and they were released pending trial. During that year the classification of the offense was as a misdemeanor, however, in November of 2019, after the prosecution appeal, the crime was again classified as normal, giving rise to the possibility that they will be condemned to prison. Currently the investigation has already closed and they are waiting for the prosecution to present the indictment.
This is another one of the many attacks that the State carries out against anarchism, beyond the facts, without entering into terms of innocence or guilt, because they are nothing more than the terms of Power to condemn and pigeonhole anyone who rebels against authority. What are now targeted are anarchist principles and practices, legitimate practices like solidarity and direct action against everything that we apply pressure to.
That is why we consider it necessary that these cases do not remain forgotten, because the work of repression feeds on this by generating misinformation regarding anarchist ideas and practices and by trying to delegitimize and demobilize them through “exemplary punishments”. Facing this continuous persecution of ideas and practices, anarchists must prevail and thus continue the offensive against the State.
Stay tuned for more information.
DEATH TO THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY!
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL COMRADES FACING REPRESSION!

We are at war
29th of May and 19th of October of 2018: Police raids in Madrid and Palencia related to the repression against the riots of Hamburg against the G20 summit in July 2017 take place. This police operation was coordinated at an European level, with a lot of cooperation between different states. Attacks in response to these police raids happen all around Europe, and they are still happening.
29th of October of 2018: Two anarchists are arrested in Madrid accused of burning a Bankia ATM the 11th of april of that same year. This action was done in solidarity with Lisa, an anarchist who is actually in prison for robbing a bank in Germany. A lot of banks receive the solidarity of the anarchists.
25th of April of 2019: An anarchist is arrested accused of attacking VOX headquarters in Madrid with a hammer. Several political headquarters are attacked during the election campaign.
13th of May of 2019: Antiterrorist operation against the anarchist movement in Tetuán (Madrid). Two anarchists are arrested under the charge of terrorism. Police break into a house and the Espacio Okupado Anarquista La Emboscada. Different attacks in solidarity happen all around the State.
During all 2019: There is an increase of evictions of squatted spaces all around the state. Dozens of people are arrested and are waiting for trial. Attacks and riots in defence of those squatted spaces.
No rest for the Exploiters.
No rest for the Power.
No peace for the State.

UN MAR DE POSIBILIDADES EN EL DESIERTO DE HORMIGÓN
Esta publicación es una recopilación de textos que surge de los debates y el trabajo que comenzamos a raíz de las jornadas «Un mar de posibilidades en el desierto de hormigón, Territorio, ciudad e insurrección» que sucedieron en Madrid durante junio de 2019 en La Emboscada y en Local Anarquista Motín. Es el fruto de un trabajo conjunto de algunas compañeras de Berlín y Madrid, que no termina con la publicación de estas páginas y que pretende extender el debate que hemos compartido. ¿Qué significa tomar territorio frente al Estado y el Capitalismo? ¿Cómo podemos tomarlo a través de nuestras luchas? ¿Cómo funciona la dominación en los territorios que habitamos? ¿Supone nuestra manera de habitar el territorio un conflicto con el sistema?

How not to act in times of theoretical and practical disarmament of revolutionary forces? How not to resort, once again, to the force of facts, of direct action, to remember that the fight against everything that oppresses us will either be the work of the oppressed themselves or it will not be?
On the night of Thursday 9 January  a vehicle of Banco Santander was set on fire in Vallekas. May the fight continue to strike those who are guilty of our misery. Because let us not forget the complicit role of the Banco Santader in the repression against the revolt in Chile, because let us not forget their dirty business in prisons, cities and arms, because their capitalist greed is evident in every eviction and clearance, because the banks are a key piece in the cogwheel of the system that subjugates and exploits us, like businessmen, like ministers, like mayors, like parliamentarians, like councillors, like politicians, like judges, and in short, like the State.
Strength and solidarity with all those affected by the State!

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!

On a monotonous working morning, some lovers of the Smartcity and the hypocrisy of clean energy, with their brain intoxicated by apps, had to walk a long way before they could find a car…
During the previous night and under the cover of the fog, ten machines on the car sharing circuit were attacked in several areas of a neighborhood in Madrid.
Against technology, against the State and the Smart-zombie world!
Long live anarchy!

New blog launched as the response to the COP25 summit is underway. This blog serves to encourage people to participate in the protests, questioning and pointing to the real leaders of the destruction of the earth. Those leaders will sit these days to make decisions about the destiny of the world, promising to fulfill agreements that they have all breached since all this time and driving us at their pace towards disaster.
We cannot leave the future, if it exists, in the hands of these miserable deceivers!
Let’s confront them, so “that they can’t say we didn’t do anything”.

December 2nd, the rulers of the world are coming to Madrid. Some of the biggest murderers of this planet, of the biggest responsible of its devastation. They come to fill their mouths and calendars with the next plans of “fight against climate change”. While global capitalism continues intact and most of the CO2 emissions emanate from industrial production, while their companies keep devastating forests and mountains to extract its natural resources.
And if that wasn’t enough, at the same time, Chile burns and their streets are still covered by the ammunition caps from the security forces. But Piñera couldn’t see his political planning disturbed by the revolt, he couldn’t admit the mediatic focus questioning his dictation before such a social explosion. And thanks to the kindness of Spanish government, now he will be able to continue with his plans without getting disheveled.
But in Chile, normality couldn’t be held anymore, and we neither want to hold it here. We won’t allow the world leaders meet to design the destruction under the look of sustainability and respect, as if everything continues to go normally. As if they haven’t been destroying all this time, as if they wouldn’t carry thousands of corpses in their backs. We won’t give them such legitimacy. Also, because we know, that the best way to show solidarity with the rebels is nothing but extend the revolt. Like in Hamburg, we want this summit to become hell.
Therefore, we encourage the system enemies to meet in Madrid, in the dates when the world owners have their appointment in this city. Stay aware to the next calls and infos. There will be enabled spaces to host those coming from other places.
On the other hand, neither do we trust that politics gestated in parliaments and offices will stop the destruction or stop the way to the collapse, that is increasingly inevitable. But we trust in the ability of every one to act, individually or in groups. That’s why we want to make a call for decentralized action to point the responsible of environmental destruction. Politicians won’t act against the Capitalism interests, but we do. Against climate change; direct action.
Attack those who destroy the Earth.

Various institutions, environmental groups, trade unions and student groups gathering under the name “Fridays for Future” have announced a so-called “Week for Climate” from the 20th to the 27th of September. Basically this week consists of programmed and alienating demonstrations in which the State and other institutions (UN, G7 etc) are being asked to remedy or take action against the disaster they are causing. In their simplistic and reformist discourse they never criticize the cause of the ongoing devastation: industrial techno capitalism and its technocratic organization of the world. They are the ones who criticize climate change without criticizing those who produce it: they have a corpse in their mouths, those who defend the myth of progress, of sustainable development and of a ‘comfortable’ life in exchange for slavery and the commodification of every aspect of our lives, a life sold to technological domination. They are the ones who have purchased the new fashionable product, climate change, from the supermarket of rebellion. Fridays for Future? Today more than ever the future does not exist, we live in an eternal present and any vestige of the past has been erased. The technological prostheses that surround and colonize us make us live in a continuous state of sleepwalking, where the catastrophe is not about to come as they insist on warning us, the catastrophe is here and now, the catastrophe is the alienating life directed by the algorithms of our ‘virtual assistants’, the catastrophe is a world already devastated by industry.

Against “smart cities”, against green capitalism, against gentrification, against cities. Against the architecture of consumption, against the commodification of all ways of life, against property. Against peace, against the absence of tension, against democracy, Against authority. The night of July 26-27 we set fire to two rental bikes in the area of Moncloa (Madrid).
May the heat of the fire and our hugs reach the Park Bench 3 and those like them.
For conflict, for anarchy.

On the morning of May 13, a new antiterrorist operation against anarchism struck in Tetuán (Madrid).
The anarchist space ‘The Ambush’ [La Emboscada] and another squatter home were searched by members of the brigada de información [political police/special branch] and a squad of the anti-riot division. The operation ended with two people arrested.
In our minds are the operations of Pandora, Piñata, Ice and the operation that still keeps Lisa behind bars. More recently the European police operations in response to the revolt in Hamburg against the G20, or the arrests of last October 29, 2018 in Madrid…
In short: the blows of the State against the struggle. Faced with this, affection, solidarity, networks of affinity and the desire to never give up are weapons against fear and repression.
Stay tuned for more information and calls.
Neither innocent nor guilty!
Solidarity and struggle!
