From Autonomies

Anarchist social centres constitute fragile points of passage for anti-capitalist archipelagos of resistance. There fragility is born of the (ever increasing) restrictions of private property and State opposition. Yet they are often the only link to rebellious pasts and radical presents: they are the vehicles of radical thought and practices, the precious islands of different futures struggling against and creating beyond the violence of the present.

From Anarchist Radio Berlin via machine translation w/ minor edits

In 2016, the Anarchist Radio Berlin (within the framework of the FdA) participated in a fundraising campaign that aimed to raise money for the purchase of a building in Cuba. The federation finally made a significant contribution.

After the comrades in Cuba succeeded in buying a building in the capital of La Habana, it is finally over (on Saturday, 5/5/2018): The Center ABRA (Social Center and Libertarian Library) opens its doors solemnly. The local comrades ask for the widest possible dissemination, a wish that we are only too happy to fulfill. And we call you to do the same.

The borders are opening after many years, and changes in Cuba predict new possibilities and dangers for the Cuban society.

New anarchist space in Paris : La Discordia

Discord is profound disagreement, violent dissent that puts people in
opposition and sets them against each other. What we want to encourage
rather is for it to set them against this old world and its defenders,
as is already happening here and there in the many acts of rebellion and
insubordination. There is no question of us throwing water on the
glowing embers of these revolts, but rather of throwing, like the
goddess Discordia [Eris], the apple of discord into the middle of this
society where mercantile and repressive relations seem to have taken the
upper hand over mutual aid, solidarity and the search for a life that we
would like to live. Also against the wide resignation and search for
consensus at all costs – even at the cost of apathy.
