    Barcelona: No bail for 5 anarchist ‘Facebook Terrorists’


    The 5 anarchists arrested Wed 15th have been imprisoned without bail. They appeared in Madrid court on ‘promoting terrorism’ and other charges, that is, just saying things in favour of ETA separatists on their Facebook identities pages.

    According to the police on Facebook they are: ”Kete Follen, Pakete Bomba, Cadenas Libertarias, Eskupe Metralla and Indio Apache Barcelona”.

    Of these we only found 'Eskupe Metralla' still up on Facebook, this page seems like 1000′s of other radical young anarchists, supporting animal rights, prisoners, punk bands, occupy, anti-fascist action etc… Perhaps thism is another police ‘mistake’. We saw no threats to politicians or royals in his/her 1370 great photos, some do advocate violence, but were put on her/his wall by others, so the crime would be ‘not deleting a criminal photo from your Facebook timeline’… Eskupe has not posted since Wednesday when the arrests took place.

    The second great crime they are accused of is a photocollage on Facebook of the King of Spain shot in the head, later modified to show various right and left Catalan politicians. This in the context of a ‘huge amount of anarchist propaganda’. The police document sending them to prison without bail listed their crimes as threatening the Royals, Politicians, and also the Security Forces and Financial Institutions (banks). We couldn’t find these images on Facebook.

    More seriously the document says ”these threats have had a concrete outcome” in damage to National police vehicles in an ”antisystem” demo in Barcelona during the General Strike of 14th Nov 2012, as well as ”attacks against capitalist interests in the Barcelona area”. This seems like another vague accusation of causing others to make attacks.

    None of them were arrested in the Sabadell Anarchist Center Raid or had anything to do with the place according to the various groups, including the 15M movement and CNT anarcho-syndicalist union who use the place, though all showed solidarity with the arrested. All agreed the police just used the excuse to raid and pillage.

    Also the group Bandera Negra of the Madrid Young Anarchist Movement have zero connection with the arrested. (Though they too showed solidarity with the accused) The police said ‘Bandera Negra’ instead of ‘Kolectivo Bandera Negra’ who are those accused of the ”crimes”.

    Finally the greatest crime is what they found when they raided their flats. See police photos. They claim to have found a ”storeroom of explosives and munitions” but the photos show some commercially available fireworks and rockets (firework season is approaching in Catalonia), a can of petrol, some plastic tubes they claim are ‘rocket launchers’, lots of punky black clothing, an anarchist banner, an anti fascist patch, etc.

    Also two of the accused, the couple JJ and YF, are accused of having a large amount of Ecstasy (MDMA), this may be a plant to stop people supporting them. The police are corrupt, recently even a director has had to resign, and their political masters even more so, there are hardly any politicians left in Catalonia who aren’t implicated in rampant corruption. Ecstasy is not addictive and comes in pills, not 5 litre bottles.

    The police also stated the group had ‘been detected’ travelling to the Nth of Spain to help the Miners Strikers a few months ago. So..is this another great crime!?

    The judge did gave their names, which we dont publish here till its clear they wish them to be publicised. They’re 3 men and 2 women.

    The ‘Facebook Terrorists’ are charged under laws invented to suppress the Basque separatist movement, which are incredibly harsh and unfair, you can spend many years in prison just for an ‘thought crime’.

    Whether or not we agree with all their actions, they are locked up for resisting repression, in a State with 60% youith unemployment, rocketing university fees, daily mass evictions, no unemployment or rent subsidies, huge new taxes on everything and everyday heavier police repression

    Freedom NOW for the Black Flag ”Facebook Terrorists”

    hi!! i am from spain. The police arrested two people but had arrest warrant for five. Because in all media said five arrested. Now i do not know which it is the situation.
    It is pathetic. The police arrested group of neonazis with gun and grenade and they are only fined for possession of weapons. Young anarchists only had marijuana and some firecrackers and are accused of terrorist.

    the same old shit...

    (sorry fot my bad english)

    Catalonia: Demonstration for freedom for the Barcelona 5


    Yesterday, June 21st, there was a call for a demonstration in Barcelona demanding the release of the 5 who were arrested in Catalonia. The arrestees have been in custody under FIES3 isolation regime for more than a month in Madrid accused of being members of an armed group, use of explosive and aggrandizement of terrorism… a police investigation that started with mapping the comrades’ Facebook profiles and tracking their participation in demos that resulted in riots, a part of the latest reform of the Penal Code, which gives the State the ability to oppress and intimidate dissent in the most effective way.

    200 people gathered in the Font de Canaletes then marched through the center of Barcelona shouting for the release of the comrades, against the State that kidnapped them, and against capitalism, democracy and the prisons that support them. The demo was closely followed by the bastards of the ABM (the riot police of Catalonia) as well as plain clothes cops, but there were no direct clashes. Texts were read at several points during the march, which lasted 2 hours:

    Some of the slogans chanted were:

    Freedom for anarchists.
    Freedom for our comrades, they are held prisoners by the State
    Down with the prison walls.
    Death to the State and long live anarchy.
    Prison is democracy
    Social war, against the State and the Capital.


    After being transferred, the comrades are still under custody and FIES3 regime in the following prisons:
    Yolanda -> C.P. Madrid V, Soto del Real
    Silvia -> C.P. Madrid VII, Estremera
    Juan -> C.P. Madrid II, Alcalá Meco
    José Carlos -> C.P. Madrid VI, Aranjuez
    Xabier -> C.P. Madrid IV, Navalcarnero

    ombing of a times square army recruitment station (which he was not connected to). He has helped many activists who have been arrested. He is being held in contempt of court for, as he put it, refusing to "testify to the federal grand jury in ethical resistance to participation in a fruitless exercise of fear-mongering and government intimidation." Check out his support page and spread the word - See more at: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10363#sthash.pQGYSeCe.dpuf

    Using Facebook or any other "Social" network (It's not exactly social in reality is it?) for any purpose other than to spread a storm of disinformation to confuse the "authorities" is stupid, anyone using Facebook deserves everything they get. The same goes for Twitter and whatever else they come up with next.

    If you use those sites, you're willingly throwing away your freedom.
