Rebuilding #Libertatia: The story of a squat, burnt by fascists, rising from the ashes [statement and video]

On Sunday 23 August 2020 at 10:30 in the morning, several squads of cops raided the Libertatia squat in Thessaloniki. More precisely, during the reparation of the building’s roof that had been burned down by fascists, the cops broke the door’s padlock and raided the squat where they arrested 12 people that were inside. After that, for one more time, they stole several building tools and other necessary material for the reconstruction of the roof, as they had done one month before, when they raided the squat together with Ephorate of Modern Monuments-assistants and had taken a part of the squat’s equipment for the rebuild project. Right after the raid, comrades that were rallying outside the building, came in and re-occupied it. Other than the 12 arrested people, the cops held two more comrades that were standing outside the building and released them a couple of hours later. The arrested comrades spent the whole day both in Toumba’s Police Department and the General P.D. Of Thessaloniki where they have been released late at night, The accusations that have been charged to the comrades are : illegal working, damaging a monument of cultural significance and disobedience. It is also worth mentioning the disgusting tentative of the police and some media to connect the accidental arrest of a woman for drugs possession with the 12 arrested comrades.

Last year, Don Grundmann, a former member of the militant pro-life group Operation Rescue, who has been involved in far-Right and pro-life groups for much of his life, finally gained his 15 minutes of fame after calling for a “Straight Pride Parade” in Modesto, California, located east of the bay area. Community opposition to the event drew out thousands in a series of protests and highly contested meetings, demanding that the city council not issue the group a permit. At one of the meetings, Grundmann famously declared, “We’re a totally peaceful racist group.”

Billy the Kid, #Podemos and the Corruption of Power

Spanish state. The state torturer Antonio González Pacheco, better known by his nickname Billy el Niño (Billy the Kid) died of coronavirus on May 7th in Madrid, at the age of 73. Like his old master Franco, he died in bed without being brought to trial for his crimes. In the 1970s he was a torturer under the Franco regime and then continued in this career during the “democratic transition”. He joined the police in the 1960s and became an inspector in 1971 and was in charge of a special brigade which investigated and arrested opponents of the Franco regime. He got his nickname from the habit of twirling his pistol in front of prisoners, and was involved in tortures like beating them whilst they were tied to a radiator or hanging from a bar, or on the soles of the feet, or forcing their heads under water. He is alleged to have been involved in the torture of hundreds.
