It's been more than a year since Amadeu Casellas [an anarchist political prisoner of the spanish State whose hunger strike in 2009, which lasted more than 77 days and which launched powerful demonstrations and solidarity actions throughout the region (*translators note)] was placed into provisional detention without bail, under the accusation of aggravated robbery at a jewelry store.
Dozens of electric bikes of the BiciMad company were sabotaged in the centre of Madrid throughout the whole month of May. Not much to it, by cutting the electric cable the bike is put out of use. Sabotage against the structure of the city is quite simple.
The pacified, ordered, commodified, big data city of control, raids, the smart-city, city of exploitation and misery, the city as centre of accumulation of power… is vulnerable! Its infrastructures and transport networks also!

Solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists
On the morning of 13 May a new antiterrorist operation against anarchism struck in Tétouan (a Madrid neighbourhood). The anarchist space La Emboscada [the ambush] and another squatted house were raided by members of la Brigade d’information and the anti-riot police. The operation resulted in two arrests. We bear in mind the Pandora, Piñata, Ice and the one that is still keeping Lisa behind bars.

In his excellent biography, Sabaté: Guerrilla Extraordinary, Antonio Tellez (himself a member of the anti-Franco guerrilla resistance), recounts some of Sabaté’s exploits from his youth until his death at the hands of a Francoist militia on the streets of Sant Celoni, Catalonia. In telling Sabaté’s story, Tellez also tells the stories of dozens of other anarchist guerrillas who might otherwise have been forgotten: people like Ramon Vila Capdevila aka ‘Caraquemada’ (‘Burnt face’), Jose Lluis Facerias aka 'Face' or Francisco Denis Diez aka 'Catala' as well as the tragic stories of Sabaté’s brothers, José and Manuel.
