ATM burnt in solidarity with the anarchist comrade convicted in Germany for expropriating a bank

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.

This small show of solidarity serves as an expression of affection and encouragement for Lisa and for the rest of anarchist comrades retaliated by the State, in Italy, Greece, France, Germany, Turkey, Chile, Mexico, Russia and around the world.

In the night between 31st March and 1st April, at midnight, we placed a homemade device made of two gas canisters with 100 grams of gunpowder as detonator, on a Mercedes showroom on Via Augusta 238.

We don’t think it necessary to justify an attack on a Mercedes showroom in a wealthy neighbourhood of Barcelona.

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.

The State unveiled: Spain’s anarchist hunt comes to a temporary end

Once again, everything has ended in nothing. Almost three years after the arrests of fifteen people under Operación Piñata (March 2015), the courts have stopped the legal process, after a request by defense lawyers to dismiss the investigation for lack of evidence against the accused.

What happens when anarchists run a country? History has an answer.

From bigthink.com

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.

Catalonia after the storm: Tomás Ibáñez

From Autonomies

The debate among anarchists around the Catalan independence movement continues unabated. From a distance, as always, it is difficult to follow events, to grasp all that is at stake, to draw reasonably clear conclusions. It is however our conviction that the events are important (not only to understand what is going on, but also to understand the position of anarchists with regards to a mass movement of national self-determination) enough to justify our ongoing concern to present, in translation, some of the protagonists in this controversy.

We share below an essay by Tomás Ibáñez, published earlier this month, on the 1st of December, in response to an essay by Santiago López Petit, and which follows earlier interventions by him on the anarchists in the Catalan referendum.

The russian revolution of 1917: Carlos Taibo

via autonomies

We close our series – without for a moment suggesting that this is the last word – on the russian revolution of 1917 with an interview with Carlos Taibo, author of the recent work, in spanish, Anarquismo y revolución en Rusia (1917-1921). Though the interview focuses on Taibo’s concern with calling attention to the role of anarchists and libertarians in the events of the russian revolution, it takes us beyond the past; the revolution remains a lens through which to think through our political present.

Originally published in Contexto y acción, we present the essay below in translation.
