On the recent (metal) workers’ strike in Cadiz

Metalworkers in Cadiz, Spain were on strike for 9 days in late November until the mainstream unions signed an agreement with the employers that many consider insufficient and even insulting. Nonetheless, things are now pretty much back to normal and it’s time to take a stock of the whole affair.

Cádiz – Put an end to police repression! Friday, November 26th Students’ General Strike: Youth fights together with steelworkers, we will not be intimidated! [Spain]

Cadiz. Spain. November 23, 2021. Today the youth of Cadiz took to the streets in great numbers to support the strike of metal workers – what an example of dignity and solidarity! But as thousands of us peacefully participated in the demonstration called by the students’ union, a perfectly coordinated group of riot police brutally attacked the demonstration. It is an absolute disgrace that these forces were sent by the central government to fight us! Despite this unprovoked police violence, we want to say loud and clear that we will not be intimidated and that we fully support the metal workers. Therefore, on Friday, November 26th, we call to once again leave the lecture halls and fill the streets for a new day of student strike!

The history of the Federación Anarquista de Gran Canaria (FAGC) – Theory and analysis

Gran Canaria. Spain. The Federación Anarquista de Gran Canaria or FAGC celebrates its 10 years of existence this month. In the past Organise Magazine already translated a series of articles written by them outlining their ideological approach in what they call “neighbourhood anarchism”. But to celebrate this anniversary we decided to translate a summary of their history in these 10 years where they went from disrupting speeches by reforminist unions during the 15M square occupations to being the single entity in Gran Canaria that has facilitated more houses for people. All of this while enduring police repression and torture, internal conflicts and splits, twitter censoship, attacks and outrage from stablished anarchist and much more.

Barcelona 19th July 1936 – A glimpse into the elsewhere

A glimpse into the elsewhere of an upturning so great that it is unimaginable, where certainties are swept away in an instant and life itself takes on a fragile intensity. These accounts contain a grain of everything it is possible to foresee of the ultimate fight for freedom and other aspects that could never have been dreamt in our worst nightmares. They inform, inspire but also warn: we need to recognise the enemies of freedom and self organisation in the paths we tread, blinded by our iconography of the enemy which is also standing right next to us and calls us comrade, albeit hissed through clenched teeth.

With love in our hearts.
