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!
III ENCUENTRO ANARQUISTA CONTRA EL SISTEMA TECNOINDUSTRIAL Y SU MUNDO: 24, 25 y 26 de Mayo – Madrid, Spain
Tuesday, April 30th, 2019
Por tercer año consecutivo tendrá lugar en el CSOA La Gatonera (C/Valentín Llaguno, 32) el Encuentro anarquista contra el sistema tecnoindustrial. Este encuentro surge debido a la necesidad de generar
un discurso contra el sistema de dominación en el que nos hayamos, dicho sistema impregna el mundo que nos rodea bajo una lógica tecnocientífica donde todo es medible, cuantificable y por tanto, está sujeto a un control. Dicho desarrollo se basa en la sustitución de los procesos naturales por procesos técnicos sometiendo así a los individuos, animales y el ecosistema a la mega máquina. Cómo anarquistas consideramos que la lucha debe integrar la necesidad de proteger nuestro medio y recuperar la autonomía que este sistema nos ha arrebatado. (more…)

Quema de dos vehículos carsharing de “E-move” y “Car to Go”: fuego a la ciudad del Capital. Fuego al Madrid de Ahora Madrid (España)
Friday, March 8th, 2019
En el marco de la semana de “Agitación y propaganda contra la gentrificación y la especulación capitalista y en defensa de la okupación” dos vehículos de las empresas “E-Move” y “Car to Go” fuegon incendiados, en los barrios de Arganzuela y Prosperidad.
Nos encontramos en la consolidación de la última reinvención democrática y de las ilusiones renovadas en las caducas estructuras del Estado y el parlamentarismo. La irrupción en el panorama político de la “nueva política” ha servido al sistema para renovar sus estructuras de dominio y dotarles de un nuevo aire de legitimidad, desgastada tras los años de la crisis. A medida que la vía electoral cobraba fuerza, la agitación en las calles disminuía. Como siempre.
Paralelamente, nos hemos encontrado con la infiltración y convivencia dentro de los llamados “movimientos sociales” de políticos y lidercillos que instrumentalizaban cualquier conato de lucha entre las muchas marcas blancas de Podemos a nivel municipal, en un reparto de la tarta del Poder municipal. Es cada vez más habitual ver a personajes como Errejón en las protestas contra los CIES, parlamentarios en desahucios como el de la calle Argumosa o observar como pululan concejales y otros tipos de políticos por algunos centros sociales okupados o no okupados, en tal o cual asamblea… (more…)

On the night of February 18, a bank ATM in the Usera neighborhood was set on fire. This small action is a sign of encouragement for Lisa, recently moved from Germany to Madrid; for the repression of the G20; the comrades arrested in Madrid on 30 October – accused of burning another Bankia ATM – and for the comrades in Italy, recently beaten in new operations against the anarchist environments in Turin and Trento, as well as for the comrades on trial in the Scripta Manet and Panic operations.
Let the Spanish and Italian states know that anarchist solidarity will not stop. And it will be formed by more than words. Sabotage is easy and simple. In the possibilities of its reproduction is its strength.
Also, this small action serves as a contribution to the week of agitation and propaganda against gentrification, spatial capitalism and in defense of squatting.
Freedom for Lisa, freedom for all!
Long Live Anarchy!

Lisa was put in isolation following her transfer from Willich prison [in Germany] to Madrid. In a recent letter she says she has gone [from the FIES regime] to ordinary detention conditions and that she no longer has restrictions on her mail. She is well and strong.
To write to her :

Last Friday, February 8, we vandalized the monument to the División Azul in the Almudena cemetery in Madrid. There are reasons to do it any day, but this date we chose with pleasure because the next day the fascists paid homage and on Sunday an amalgam of rancid ultra-Catholics, fascists, geriatics, neo-Nazis and various imbeciles walked with their anachronistic and disgusting symbols for a few streets in Madrid.
We carry the historical memory in our hearts. In the invisible scars that have left us with centuries of oppression. In our ideology and our practices. In our incessant search for freedom. We do not need governments or laws that change symbols for others. We will always have fun staining the dirty symbols of the authorities, whether they represent democracy or fascist dictatorships.
Death to the State and Long Live Anarchy!
Wednesday, December 26th, 2018
On Friday December 21 the comrade was transferred to Madrid, to Soto del Real prison. As far as we know there are no restrictions on incoming or outgoing post, so it would be really nice if everyone were to write to her. Here is her new address:
Centro Penitenciario Madrid V
Carretera M609 km.3,5
28791 Soto del Real
Monday, December 31 at 10.30 gathering outside the WAD-RAS prison.

Claims received by the comrades in Madrid in solidarity with the comrades arrested on October 29. The companions ask for diffusion and translation:
Wednesday, November 7th, 2018
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. (more…)
Madrid, Spanish State: Sabotage Within the Framework of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners
Thursday, September 27th, 2018
During the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners more than a dozen ATMs in different neighborhoods of Madrid were sabotaged. The tools for these types of sabotage and simple and easy: hammers and sprays.
We understand solidarity as a continuity of the struggle that has led to our compañerxs being held in the prisons of the State. Anarchist solidarity is much more than just a written word or doing assistance work with the prisoners. This solidarity is materialized via attacks against the structures of capitalism and State, and seeks to deepen the conflict through direct action.
Down with the walls of the prisons. Long live anarchy.
For the compañerxs hit by Operation Scripta Manent!
For the compañerxs facing repression following the Hamburg G20 summit!
For the Indonesian anarchists prosecuted after May 1st!
For Lisa and all the anarchist prisoners!

Month of Solidarity and Fight for Okupation (squatting). From the 19th of November to the 19th of December
Web (Spanish): https://okupamadrid.espivblogs.net/
We understand okupation (squatting) as a tool of fight whose main purpose is far from the idea of shaping recreational places. It is an strategy to fight, theoretically and practically, against property as a key pillar of capitalist democracy. Okupation (squatting) is beyond merely logistic. It brings partnership among comrades, builds affinity networks and solidarity, as well as create meeting points to discuss, share experiences or to make out some self criticism. Okupation is not and end but a mean that allows us to organize ourselves and conspire. It is a tangible expression of the notion of “Do it yourself”.
The power has done everything to erase any self-management projects since they prove our capacity to organize ourselves outside the system.
For that purpose, many strategies have been deployed. From harsh repression; raids, arrests, police farce, to “kinder” strategies based on negotiation. Despite superficial differences, the final end of these strategies is the control and domestication (of our ideas and practices) of social movements. (more…)

AMENAZA DE DESALOJO EN MADRID
ESOA La Dragona: “Lo que el PP no ha podido hacer en 7 años, lo pretende hacer en 7 meses Ahora Madrid”
Sobre el ESOA La Dragona de Madrid pesa una amenaza de desalojo. El pasado martes convocaron una rueda de prensa para exponer sus posiciones y dar a conocer su plan de lucha.
El ESOA La Dragona comienza a funcionar en el año 2008 tras liberar activistas y jóvenes vecinos del madrileño barrio de La Elipa un edificio abandonado durante más de 25 años perteneciente al cementerio de La Almudena.
El cementerio se encuentra actualmente gestionado por la empresa mixta de servicios funerarios FUNESPAÑA S.A., cuyo principal accionista es la multinacional española Mapfre. El gobierno del Partido Popular otorgó la concesión a esta empresa durante 20 años a cambio de tan solo 100 pesetas, lo que le valió una imputación al entonces alcalde de Madrid, Francisco Álvarez del Manzano, por un delito de prevaricación y malversación de fondos públicos.
