“Time is just time and the future is uncertain, the attack is here and now … There is a present to ignite and explode! War in the present! ” Kevin Garrido
“Although solidarity is always important – in every aspect – we cannot agree with many actions that are done in support of those with whom we have affinity, even if they are always necessary. We believe that an important part of recognizing oneself as revolutionaries lies in being disposed – as I am – to attack the State apparatus and capital. In this way we believe that solidarity must transcend words, forge itself in attack and thus turn into constant action against order. Because the recognition of affinity must be accompanied by complicity and experiences, creating an indissoluble link between the anonymous.” International Conspiracy for Revenge / Deflagrating Cell Gerasimos Tsakalos
Yesterday morning 2 November 2018, anarchist comrade Kevin Garrido was murdered!
On November 19, 2015, at around 3.30 am,18-year-old anarchist comrade Kevin Garrido was arrested by civilian police while he was on his bicycle following the explosion of an home-made device placed near the “Training School of the Penitentiary of the Gendarmerie “.

The bomb was placed near the intersection of the Grand Avenue and Alvarez of Toledo, near the courts of appeal of San Miguel and Fiscalia sur, precisely at the gate of the police station.)
Joaquín was only accused of the attempted attack on the 12th Comisaria, an action claimed by the Conspiración Internacional por la venganza / Célula deflagrante Gerasimos Tsakalos.
According to the Fiscalia (public prosecution) the cell phone used to detonate the explosive charge was used, at some point, by a family member of Joaquin.
