The TransHackFeminist convergence was first organized in Calafou, an eco-industrial post-capitalist colony, located 60 km from Barcelona, Catalonia. For seven days, from the 4th to the 11th of August 2014, intersectional feminists, queer and trans people of all genders met to better understand, use and ultimately develop free and liberating technologies for social dissent.

From issue-less “days of action” to inconsequential general strikes, the recent struggles in Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal invariably seem to stumble over the limit of their own national frame of reference. The standpoint of the nation, long considered synonymous with political activity per se, be it that of the State or one or another revolutionary party, has revealed itself as being the very scale of our own collective powerlessness. It is this powerlessness, turned against itself, that fuels the fire of so many nationalist resentments.

The Middle East today is the last place anyone in mainstream western thought would think to look for progressive political thought, and even less to see those thoughts translated into action. Our image of the region is one of dictatorships, military juntas and theocracies built on the ruins of the former Ottoman Empire, or hollow states like Afghanistan, and increasingly Pakistan, where anything outside the capitol is like Mad Max.
According to info received, Tamara Sol was found guilty by the court and sentenced to 7 years and 800 days (9 years and 2 months in total) in prison. Recall that Tamara Sol is the comrade who was arrested after a BancoEstado security guard was shot in revenge for the death of Sebastián Oversluij Seguel.
After the trial, there was clashes between Sol family’s and the tribunal guards (gendarmes).
However, there still exists an appeal opportunity against the sentence.
More news will be published by other comrades in some blogs.
