From Danilo, accused of setting fire to police van in Barcelona

In February, the imprisonment of the rapper Pablo Hasél and the riots in Linares, in Andalousia, following the beating of a man and his daughter by plainclothes cops sparked a brief moment of revolt in the Iberian territory, especially in Catalonia. The reasons go beyond freedom of expression: hatred of the police, refusal of the curfew, the economic and social situation, etc. Saturday 27th February a riot broke out in the centre of Barcelona: banks and shops were trashed, ATMs burnt, clashes and barricades against the cops, and slight burning of a police van.

Some electricity companies attacked and two Iberdrola vehicles set on fire

from Contramadriz Translated to Italian by Inferno Urbano and translated to English to by Act for freedom now!

During the night we visited various offices of the main electricity companies, representatives of this national capitalism clearly linked to the high political spheres of executive power. Windows painted and smashed, one form of attack against those who profit from theft and exploiting basic needs. Fire against their vehicles, an inverted metaphor of the cold into which they are forcing so many people.

Claudio Lavazza, rebel, anarchist, bank robber and gentleman. During the 70s in Italy he participated in the struggle against State and Capital, arms in hand. Contrary to the grave-diggers of subversion, after this experience, he never traded his desire to overthrow the existent for a political career.

The many irregularities in the Barcelona 4-F case were exposed in the documentary Ciutat Morta, along with the police violence suffered by the prisoners, which we covered back in 2014.
