#Catalonia: The #Zaragoza Manifesto

As anarchists we don’t support political parties and we are not enthousiastic about old and new states. Given the repression by the Spanish state and openly fascist tweets by the para military Guardia Civil and more and more fascist gatherings across Spain, we think its important to follow the events in Spain and Catalonia. The repression against the referendum has to stop. We publish the Zaragoza Manifesto to document these developments.

#Catalonia: We Just Want to Stop Pleading

As anarchists we are not exactly enthousiastic about states. Not about old states and not about new states. Still the developments in Catalonia are important. The repression by the spanish state, shows the ugly Francoist face of the governing Partido Popular (PP). Thats actually not surprising, as the Partido Popular was founded by Franquists, several ministers of Franco’s fascist regime were among the founders of the PP. The party has its roots in the People’s Alliance founded on 9 October 1976 by former Francoist minister Manuel Fraga. We reblog an editorial by Simona Levi,  theatre director and activist. She is co-founder of the Spanish group Xnet and of 15MpaRato, a citizens’ device to bring to court those responsible for the economic crisis in Spain. We dont agree on everything she wrote in her editorial, which is a call to the people of Spain, but we think its an important read.
