One of the locations that you can see again and again in the tour video was evicted and destroyed just a few days ago: Can Vies in Barcelona. We declare our solidarity to all the people who were fighting for Can Vies and who were arrested!
Yesterday, governement sent the Police for the eviction of this old Squatt.
This place, squatted in 1997, was a Selfgested center, where lots of projects were alive. theatre, martial arts, workshops, concerts, political groups, benefit kitchen… 17 years of activism, died under police attack.
During all the day, acivists were inside, defending the squatt, and put their lives on danger. 1000 people was supporting outside.

kronstadt was few days ago supporting Antifascist scene in Trento, North Italy.
There, few weeks ago was opened a CasaPound place. CasaPound is a fascist initiative, ‘dressed’ as populist, poor people helping, social center. They use to give food to poor people, but just white italian ones.
Since they opened the center, lots of attacks are happening againts Anarchist centers and people. And some knive attacks against people happened in one month, keeping people near to death. Fascists from small towns or cities around, meet in Trento at casaPound, and after this, go hunting antifa people.

Extract from the letter of the fighting janitors:
“We are 595 women, who were working for many years as janitors for the Ministry of Finance. Since the 18 September 2013 we are suspended from our work and on the 18 May 2014 we are losing our job definitely, we will be fired. We are all women, and the gender discrimination is obvious. Most of us are over 50 years old at the retirement age, a pension that we may never get. Many of us are single-parents and the lives of our families depend on our salaries. The memoranda of austerity policies have deprived us from the right to work and life. Today in Greece the unemployment lies at 27% and for women it stands at 62.8%. We have no hope of getting new jobs. We are deprived of any right to health care…”
From May 15th to 25th protests against the programs of austerity and privatizations imposed by the Troika will take place in Europe beyond national borders. In cities like Rom, Madrid, Thessaloniki or Berlin employees as well as unemployed, retirees, migrants and the youth will be on the streets together against global capitalism and for democracy from below.

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Athens’ main shopping district, resulting in clashes with riot police who tried to disperse the protesters with chemicals and brutal repression.
The Sunday, April 13, Workers in shops called again Sunday for work(most of them without being payed) , according to the law passed in the summer of 2013 .This with the compbination of recently voted lows down the ” experimental ” function stores all the Sundays in the three regions of the country , so very soon throughout the territory. Note that many workers have not been paid over 15 months……
The shops open on Sundays and the ‘ liberated ‘ timetables mark a clear attack on workers’rights and in our lives , part of the overall attack on the people.
