Berlin. On Tuesday the 16th of November a demo in solidarity with the gorillas riders took place. Starting from the warehouse of Muskauer str.48 at 18.00 the demo marched until Hermannplatz. Around 600 people demonstrated, shouted slogans, spread flyers and made clear that Gorillas workers are not alone. As Interkiezionale we also participated and called for the demo since we recognize the struggle of Gorillas as a try to resist and fight back the city of the rich. We participated in posterings and flyerings, we mobilized and tried to be more activily involved in this struggle. We believe that the connection of urban struggles should be our priority in order to compose an intersectional resistance.Continue reading Gorillas demo update and self-criticism [Berlin]
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!Continue reading Cádiz – Put an end to police repression!
