Peru, Arequipa: very heavy policing on 8th day of indefinite strike against Tia Maria mining project “Strikers say policemen threw and fired tear gas and shot from helicopters…. hundreds of policemen attacked and entered their homes by force to arrest people …”…they entered the houses with arrogance, kicking down doors to arrest people just because we are against polluting mining… With more than three thousand police they besieged the whole of Cocachacra and kidnapped all the people of Tambo Valley. They have also police contingents in Mollendo to stop the population having access or making its way to us.

Revolt is brewing across Québec and is spreading day by day. Already 66 student associations have voted a renewable strike. There are more and more night demos. Cégep du Vieux-Montréal and Université Laval are taking hold of their campuses and transforming them into political spaces. UQÀM was blockaded today [Monday, March 31, 2015]. Whereas Printemps 2012 took several weeks to really begin, Printemps 2015 has taken off in the space of a few days. The movement is re-starting right where 2012 was interrupted. The strike is underway.

From The Hamilton Institute
The past month in Hamilton saw two communique-worthy events without communiques. We celebrated March 15th day of action against brutality in the middle of the Juno awards ceremony and our buddy who was getting railroaded into a jail sentence got off after a crowd of supporters pressured the court.

The final tally of what the police, hilariously, have dubbed "Operation Piñata" is, to the best of our knowledge, 28 comrades arrested and 17 buildings raided.
Of the raids, 6 targeted social centers and the others targeted houses.
14 people were arrested and charged with resistance for opposing the raids in a social center in Madrid, but as of this evening all of them have been released.

Protests have been called for in various cities tonight. The arrests are connected to the recent Operation Pandora.).
