Twenty-seven people have been arrested by police during a new operation against anarchists in Spain. Starting at 6 a.m. on March 30 2015, police actions in Madrid, Barcelona, Palencia and Granada led to the arrest of 13 people whom police allege belonged to a “criminal organization with terrorist aims”. In the course of raids on six social centres and 11 homes, 14 more people were arrested on charges of resisting the authorities.
In this part I will expose some basic historical information about the anarchist political organization model and in the end, make a comparison between these experiences and the nowadays mission of the political organization that intends to be the catalyst of a Democratic Confederalist social change.

Este ensaio é o início de uma tentativa de desenvolver uma abordagem libertária de esquerda em direção a um modelo econômico, especificamente em relação a um modelo que é compatível com as formações políticas do Confederalismo Democrático, também conhecido como Municipalismo Libertário. Nesta fase, o objetivo é o desenvolvimento de um trabalho conjunto de ferramentas de análise e de aprendizagem que seja fomentado entre a Esquerda Libertária. Para este fim submeto este texto relativamente simples para fornecer noções acessíveis para aqueles que lutam para construir uma sociedade baseada na Confederalismo Democrático.
Tem momentos na história de um país em que um conjunto de forças à esquerda tem as chances históricas de quebra da hegemonia de pensamento e as coisas passam desapercebidas. Entendo que, graças ao triste fato do PT se imiscuir com o pior do Brasil nos últimos 12 anos, estamos diante de um gigantesco escândalo - evidência com provas - de sonegação fiscal com provável corrupção de agentes públicos - do primeiro escalão da Receita - e apenas a difusão destes fatos poderia colocar contra a parede o andar de cima inteiro. Apenas verificando as listas cruzadas da Lava-Jato com a Zelotes (que deixara um rombo nos cofres públicos de R$ 19 bi, o dobro da Lava-Jato), derrubamos mitos de excelência do setor privado, capacidade de competência do agente econômico e superação do setor público.
“Ed, that’s soldier’s headed our way, we’re gonna have to move”. Sure enough the soldier is trudging down the road towards us, unshouldering his rifle and looking, even from this distance, distinctly narked. Ed doesn’t directly acknowledge my warning, except with a barely discernible movement of the head, focussed as he is on his camera shot. He knows I know that he’s heard me and he knows that as I haven’t yet added the “...now!” intensifier, that he has a few more precious seconds to finish the shot, as the camera pans over the ruins of Eastern Kobane against the backdrop of Mishtenur Hill. It’s 2:30 in the afternoon of Thursday 19 March on the Turkish side of the border with Syria and Kobane.
A translated article that gives a short info about the ongoing hunger strike of greek anarchist prisoners that started on 2/3. The artice was originally written by the greek anarchist group "Convention of Anarchists for the Social and Class Counter-Attack".
Overshadowed in most histories by the Spanish anarchist movement next door, the Portuguese movement may have been numerically smaller but was relatively, by head of population, a *larger* movement, with the anarchosyndicalist CGT achieving an almost totally hegemonic position in the working class.

To an English-speaking outsider, the French anarchist movement - as distinct from the Francophone anarchist movement in North Africa, Vietnam, etc - is often viewed as the "mother" movement because of the massive CGT union federation which, under anarchist sway, amalgamated with the local Bourses du Travail in 1895, establishing an "apolitical" model of mass anarchosyndicalism that was replicated in Fracophile countries such as Poland and most of Europe and lands as far away as Brazil, Egypt and Senegal.
We covered the attempted eviction of the squatted complex at Grangegorman during the week of via our new Facebook page, youtube and Twitter.
For those not familar with Dublin the attempted eviction is happening just 100m north of Smithfield Square. The complex consists of a mix of residentical, industrial & commercial premises that had been left derlict for up to 15 years. There had been a couple of eviction scares previously but at 6.30am on the morning of Monday 23rd March the residents were suddenly worken by the sound of a gang of over 30 men smashing their way into the compound and in at least one case into their houses.
One of our reporters was awoke shortly afterwards to a text message sayiong this was happening and they made their way down, the coverage that follows is a result of their work and the work of other WSM reporters. We've edited the updates together and improved their readibility.
