The last few years have seen an increasing wave of repression against Anarchists and other radicals right across the Spanish State, best characterized by the police operations Pandora and Piñata.
Acting in response to movements, uprisings and upheavals across
the country, particularly in Catalonia, the state has arrested dozens of
comrades, often under the pretext of anti-terrorism. The result has
been to foster a climate of fear and in-action.
While most of
those held in pre-trial detention have been released, all still have
pending charges. Now is our moment to show that their attempts to
silence us will not work.
June 13th is a day of international solidarity in support of all those
facing charges, in relation to these police operations and others. On
this day, across the Spanish State there will be widespread
demonstrations to mark the beginning of an international campaign of
solidarity and support.
Anarchists across Ireland will be expressing our
support and solidarity by holding several protest events. In Belfast
on Saturday 13th June, we will be gathering at the Anti-Fascist monument
in Writers Square at 2pm (sharp).
Please join with us in solidarity with our imprisoned anarchist comrades.
Flags and banners welcome!
