#COVID19 #Madrid: The neighborhood associations of #Villaverde, #Usera, #Vallecas and #Carabanchel rise up against the proposal of selective confinements

Madrid. Spain. The neighborhood associations of Carabanchel, Villaverde, Usera, Puente and Villa de Vallecas categorically rejected the proposal of selective confinement of their neighborhoods to stop the advance of Covid-19. About thirty of these groups, together with the FRAVM, made the “Manifesto for the Dignity of the South in the face of the second wave” public, a forceful writing that reviews a good part of the endemic problems and the abandonment of the Administration that these districts have suffered for decades and serves to confront the “stigmatization, exclusion and territorial discrimination”. We do not share everything in the following statement, even reject some parts (like the part about sharing a police station in Usera and Villaverde). Still we think its an important read about the growing resistance in Madrid against classist cofinement measures in the framework of COVID-19.

#Madrid: First attempt to evict the #AteneoLibertario in #Vallekas stopped. The struggle continues

Madrid. On September 16, it was again made clear that solidarity and direct action are the best weapon we have as a means of defense against the state and repression. About 150 people from Vallekas and other neighborhoods of the city gathered at the door of the Ateneo Libertario de Vallekas to prevent the eviction of the space. This is not just the eviction of a space, it is the defense of squatting as a tool of struggle in the social war, as a tool to create with our own hands, outside of parties and institutions, spaces of struggle, meeting and learning.

#Madrid Quarantine City: From the slime of these muds

Madrid. Faces of panic, helplessness or disbelief. Screaming and shouting. Moving cameras. Home movies. Uniformed henchmen humiliating, insulting, abusing, hitting… A quick glance at social media, youtube and even the “serious” media leave us a good sample of the circus of horrors with which the armed forces of power are delighting us. With special attention to the most impoverished neighborhoods and to the most unprotected bodies.
