The prosecution, who had initially pressed terrorism charges following attacks on banks in Madrid and Barcelona, had recently changed them and demanded sentences of two years only for the charge of apologia of terrorism. This happened because most evidence was linked to Facebook and Twitter posts.

I see that a poster has come out edited and discussed by various anarchists in solidarity with those accused in the“Scripta Manent” trial. I think it is important to reaffirm a collective stance of solidarity with the comrades under investigation and of complicity with the various practices that have always been a legacy of hostility against authority.

TOTW: An Anarchist Survey

Over the years there have been more than a handful of attempts at an anarchist survey. Way back in 1926 some anarchists from Stuebenville, Ohio called "Los Iconoclastas" conducted an international survey of anarchists. In 1928, Emma Goldman and Alexander Berkman created a similar survey that was an influence on the Encyclopédie Anarchiste of the time. Since then, surveys in the digital world have become a bit more common with some from recent memory being conducted by Anarkismo, Libcom, a survey from some South African anarchists, over Reddit, and even some Google Forms here and there. Listed below are 13 questions taken from the new anarchist survey that was recently created and shared as an article on ANEWS.

Comrades,

In the last decades, the capitalist society as a whole is splitting up more and more into two great hostile armies directly facing each other: Bourgeoisie and Proletariat. Our epoch, the epoch of the deepening of the global industrial and commercial crisis and thereby increasing class struggle around the world has already passed various stages of development, through which the proletariat has exceeded its first stage of the isolated and sporadic phenomena. The growth of the class war will more and more take on an increasingly international form. And despite of the capitalist war in the Middle East, and new attempts by global capitalism to widen the circle of the war under the pretext of striking Iran's nuclear weapons, proletariat in Iran has joined-up the current international wave of class struggle. The strikes and demonstrations in Iran have spread to over 249 cities in all of Iran’s 31 provinces. These revolutionary waves did not set an end in Iran, before the proletariat in Iraq entered this historical wrestling ring.

Peace is unmemory and oblivion

From Contra Info by anarchist Gustavo Rodríguez

To memory of Mauricio Morales Duarte

The cult of the dead is nothing more than contempt for true pain. […] The latter must also disappear, faced with the fatality of death the people must react firmly. We must fight against suffering instead of displaying it, of promenading it in grotesque processions and false commemorations […] Pyramids, graves, tombs must be thrown down; we must drive the plow through the walls of cemiteries to rid humanity of what we call respect for the dead, which is the worship of corpses“.
