Our comrades from Spain are calling for an international day of support for anarchist prisoners! #ContraPandora #StopCriminalization
December 16th 2014 we saw 11 anarchists in Barcelona area detained in what has been known as "Operation Pandora".
On the night of the 22nd of December we attacked the Spanish Consulate in Amsterdam. We threw paint bombs and sabotaged their door in solidarity with the people repressed by the fascist Spanish state.
On December, 22nd, 2014, a group of anarchists stormed the Spanish consulate in San Francisco. After throwing leaflets into the consulate, tipping over the Spanish flag, and yelling curses, the group left without incident.
On Tuesday, December 16th, at 5am, hundreds of cops broke into several houses, social centers, and ateneos in Barcelona, and also an apartment in Madrid. It was part of Operation Pandora, an anti-terrorist initiative carried out by the the highest level of the Spanish court system. Several houses were searched and eleven anarchist comrades were arrested. They did not know what charges they were accused of when they were arrested, just given a vague “anarchist terrorism” charge.
Translation of an early report from Barcelona on the developing situation of Spanish comrades arrested on terrorist charges. Originally published in Spanish on alasbarricadas on Dec 16 2014, 9:58 am
