This journal is an invitation to break with the existent, to accept the clash with power in all its magnitude and complexity, aware this is a road of no return, where we don’t know what we could encounter. When we decide to go beyond the confines of the pre-established we leave monotony and the routine of city life behind, we break enslaving schemes and dogmas, venturing into permanent and unstoppable conflict. There’s no remorse, no regret, no steps backwards in this freely and individually made choice, which we accept with all that it implies.
On Tuesday, two people were arrested in A Coruña in relation to the events that occurred during the eviction of A Insumisa social centre. The arrests follow the social centre eviction conducted in late May when the local police turned up at the door, and were met with locals gathered outside to defend the space. During the eviction there have been police charges that have resulted in injuries. The police also used tear gas.
Against the submissive leftist panorama (that reaches libertarian environments) that uncritically adds itself to controlled, civic and citizen protest, is clamouring for the freedom of dirty police and politicians in full catharsis of citizenist nationalism and many others swimming in the self-complacency of victimization in social networks, we are not renouncing attack.

Antonio Morillo, an anarcho-syndicalist related to cleaning section of the Madrid Metro, died at home before he reached the age of 40, leaving behind a 4-year-old daughter and the love of your life.
We would like to remember this comrade who was always firm and combative in the fight against the bosses. “There can be no social peace until workwomen and workmen emancipation is achieved”

The CNT branch at the port of Barcelona has an exemplary history of struggle, both within the workplace and in the broader society. They established themselves at the port through fierce and relentless struggle over workplace issues, and the latest threat from the company was in fact an attempt to get them to negotiate away an earlier victory.
When most people hear the word "anarchy", they think of chaos. It brings to mind images of gangs fighting in the streets, looting and rioting, without a police force to help end the madness. It can be hard to grasp why anybody would ever declare themselves to be an "anarchist." After all, most of the news about anarchists in the United States focuses on their violent demonstrations.
