The last few years have seen an increasing wave of repression against Anarchists and other radicals right across the Spanish State, best characterized by the police operations Pandora and Piñata. Acting in response to movements, uprisings and upheavals across the country, particularly in Catalonia, the state has arrested dozens of comrades, often under the pretext of anti-terrorism. The result has been to foster a climate of fear and in-action.
While most of those held in pre-trial detention have been released, all still have pending charges. Now is our moment to show that their attempts to silence us will not work.
On June 13th is a day of international solidarity in support of all those facing charges, in relation to these police operations and others. On this day, across the Spanish State there will be widespread demonstrations to mark the beginning of an international campaign of solidarity and support. Anarchists across Ireland will be expressing our support and solidarity by holding several protest events. In Belfast on Saturday 13th June, we will be gathering at the Anti-Fascist monument in Writers Square at 2pm (sharp).
Please join with us in solidarity with our imprisoned anarchist comrades.
Flags and banners welcome!
