10.00am Last night there were protests against the Guardia Civil and the Spanish Police Nacional in several cities and towns. After the police violence in the night from October 1 on October 2 the protests were more intense in Calella. As a consequence dozens of cops were kicked out of two hotels by the hotel management after their agression the night before. The Travé Hotel in Figueres announced that they will not renew the reservations for Spanish security forces and force them to leave the hotel.

03:37pm Calderdale Solidarity Federation on Catalonia: against police violence, against new states

Calderdale SF/IWA condemns the police violence against Catalan citizens on the 1st October 2017 who went to vote on what the Spanish state has declared to be an illegal referendum on independence. While, as anarchosyndicalists, we don’t support the creation of a new state, which reflects mainly the interests of the Catalan bourgeoisie, we do condemn all police violence and intimidation against men, women and children. Instead of the creation of new states with warring police and capitalist factions pitted against one another, we favour the deeply embedded solution of libertarian federalism – free, self-managed communities that are plural, open and tolerant.

Calderdale SF also supports the general strike called in Catalonia by independent unions such as our sister union the CNT on 3rd October, which not only opposes a capitalist free-for-all as proposed by all state actors but which also defends the self-empowerment of the working class.

Story by Kate Shea Baird: “The streets will always be ours”: the cry of a defiant Catalonia “The future is uncertain, but one thing is clear: whether or not the Catalan Parliament declares independence, and whether or not such a declaration is recognized internationally, real sovereignty in Catalonia is already being built by people on the ground, street by street.”: https://katesheabaird.wordpress.com/2017/10/03/the-streets-will-always-be-ours-the-cry-of-a-defiant-catalonia/
