The demonstration is called by a non governmental organization the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) with the theme “Catalan way to independence” on Wed. September 11, the Catalan national day.

Right to decide : For the determination and self-management
Permanent Secretariat of the CGT Catalonia for September 11 , 2013.
en català sota
All people were born to be free . Given that all people live in society , the desire for individual freedom also becomes a right to collective freedom . Hence the whole community recognized as such, as a group , as a people , as a nation , and of course , as a class , have the inalienable right to decide their future. As expected this September 11th the people of Catalonia will again take the streets to demand something that is obvious and logical : the right to be free to decide as a people on all aspects of our future .

Attitudes Harden in Spain as Catalonian Referendum Looms (someday,maybe..)
“I hate Catalonia and I can’t stand the Catalans.” These blunt words rolled off the sharp tongue of an habitually sweet-tempered 15-year old Spanish girl called Aina. Aina is from Spain’s north-eastern province of Aragon and she is among a score of Spanish teenagers attending a two-week summer language course I’m helping to organize in the UK.

UPDATE: In a blatant attack on dissent the neo-fascist Madrid government still keeps 5 young people, including a mother of 2 small kids, without bail in anti terrorist punishment cells. Their only crime.. sharing anti state images with friends in accounts already deleted by Facebook.!!
UPDATE de los 5 de Barcelona
Pedimos por favor que NO MANDÉIS CARTAS a los compañeros, es peligroso para ellos y para vosotros mientras estén en FIES3. Aprovecho para puntualizar que estamos llevando a cabo un duro trabajo, pero que lo que podemos publicar es mínimo, nuestro trabajo es desde
apoyo a los presos, la familia y contactar con decenas de
organizaciones. Pedimos por favor que nadie actué por su parte, haciéndolo con
la mejor de las intenciones puede convertir su acción en un problema
grave para nuestros compañeros. Los que pedís como ayudar, podéis
preparar acciones de recogida de dinero (bolos, cafetas etc...) ya que
en breve tendremos lista la cuenta para el apoyo económico, también
organizar concentraciones solidarias todo y que nosotros no
organizaremos nada mientras eso no pueda ayudar a nuestros compañeros.
Salud y gracias por la compresión....See MoreYou, Ricardo Mauriz, Ste Blacknoise, Abel Garcia and 91 others like this.View 12 more comments
Los 5 de BarcelonaSentimos mucho la confusión, esto nos viene de nuevo, no tenemos experiencia con estos temas y eso nos dificulta el trabajo. Después de hablar con abogados y distintos colectivos con mas experiencia lleguemos a la conclusión de no publicar esa información como nos recomendó todo aquel que tenia experiencia en el tema, perdón por la confusión.
.Supporting terrorism? On the arrest of anarchists in Sabadell and media terrorism,
judicial and police by Anarchists 16 May 2013
From early yesterday morning we’re all longing to know who the detainees are. Who has been dragged off to Madrid in chains to face the High Terrorist Courts? In fact we have no knowledge of who they are or what exactly they are accused of. According to the press are “members” of the anarchist group Black Flag (Bandera Negra), which we had no knowledge of its existence and of which we only found now has a Facebook page.
The truth is that the arrests only serve to realize a situation that many saw coming. In the last few weeks have been going out sporadically in virtual press articles (Cadena Ser, Europa Press, etc.) on anarchists, making a salad of issues that do not relate to reality, but they did serve to create a situation conducive to a coup like this . And there are many colleagues who have spoken through articles about it in blogs, pages and publications. Continue reading “Bandera Negra (Black Flag) statements on anarchist Arrests”
translation by The Free. From free paper ’20 Minutes’ and reprinted in ‘Rojo y Negro’ of the CGT union.
At least 1,200 Catalans manage themselves with their own ”money”, education and health , they do not use the euro but ecos, a “free money” that can be exchanged for hours of work or products..
They have organized a network of health care, education and access to housing, based on trust among members.
They are expanding to the rest of the peninsula. in France and Italy similar experiences have been initiated.
They have a currency of its own, a self-managed health care system, an educational network and housing office. They are self-managed cooperatives and self-organization, groups of people living outside the system, and make decisions in open assemblies based on trust organization. In Catalonia, there are already 1,200 citizens who have chosen this way of life and the implementation of these communities is spreading. The crisis and the 15M indignados movement has given it wings. Continue reading “Integral Revolution Coop takes off in Barcelona”
Update. 15th Feb ’13. Enric Duran, the ‘anarchist Robin Hood’ is now on the run, after the Spanish State declared him an outlaw and ordered his immediate ‘Search and Capture’. Enric is charged with ‘stealing’ 492,000 euros which he borrowed from gullible banks and donated to revolutionary and social causes.
LATEST UPDATE. despite the news in this and many other papers it has emerged that the arrest warrant was never officially sent and the trial remains blocked! Great News for Enric!
Enric refused to attend his trial on Tuesday after all his witnesses had been banned by the judge (even some bank managers who were to testify for him), and because the trial was brought forward by surprise.
He had planned to use the trial to expose and reject the banks and capitalist system: ‘While banks’ and institutions’ credibility is almost zero, hundreds of senior politicians and bankers are being impeached and almost all of them getting away with everything. While all of this happens, the attorney’s office and 14 banks request 8 years of prison for Enric Duran. Continue reading “Robin Hood: anarchist on the Run.. update”
