Information About the Recent Repressive Blow of the Argentine State
On November 14th, two specific events took place in the city of Buenos Aires, with media coverage and a rapid police / judicial response.
During the afternoon, in the Recoleta cemetry, at the mausoleum dedicated to Colonel Ramon Falcon (assassinated by comrade Simón Radowitzky) – a bomb explodes leaving the comrade Anahi Salcedo wounded, she is transferred to Fernandez hospital and detained with wounds to her face and skull as well as the loss of three fingers on one of her hands. She is currently in an induced coma. At the same place, comrade Hugo Rodriguez was arrested.
We republish this statement signed by anarchist and social movement organizations around the world denouncing the current wave of repression aimed at left, anarchist and social movement organizations in Argentina. In the lead up to hosting a meeting of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on November 30, two bombing incidents conducted by unknown groups have become a pretext for wide ranging police repression including police raids on social centers and the homes of movement activists. As social movements prepare to protest the summit and it’s neoliberal agenda, the security forces have worked to create an atmosphere of fear, urging Buenos Aires 3 million residents to leave the city during the summit and announcing plans to deploy 20,000 officers.
The arrests came after one bomb exploded in Buenos Aires and another was thrown at a judge's home. Authorities say security is at "maximum alert" in order to avoid disturbances to the upcoming G20 summit.

Tribute to Eduardo Colombo
Today, March 13th, the sad note of the death of Eduardo Colombo strikes us painfully. With Eduardo, not only disappears a dear and fraternal compañero, but also a first-rate thinker and a militant anarchist of unshakeable convictions.
This video was made one month after the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado in the hands of Gendarmería Argentina.
The lifeless body of Santiago was "found" on October 17 -78 days after his disappearance-in the Chubut River 300 meters upstream from the place where he was seen captured by Gendarmería, and in an area that had been raked in different occasions by those who carried out their search.
