On Tuesday April 04, members of Police Intelligence and the regular police carried out two coordinated raids linked to the La Solidaria Social Center. The raids ended with 5 comrades detained, one of whom was charged and bailed, accused of criminal damage. This accusation could be upgraded to to robbery charges and is a result of investigations by the repressive organs of the State that have been carried out since the eviction of the social center and the protests that followed.
The state has promised more arrests in the coming days. Presumably then, there will be more detainees. Private property was put into question and self-organization was made the culprit. The clash between the State standards that defend the existing order based on profit and exploitation and the ability of the self-organized to struggle for radical social transformation was inevitable.
The ability to transform spaces and give them a real life, placing them at the service of the autonomous social struggle and the ability to disrespect the world of dominion will never be forgiven by the defenders of capital…
At the moment, clarity in ideas is very important and the ability to remain strong is crucial.
Defend our social centers, defend the struggle for freedom.
For self-organization and direct action.
PS: Around the time that this text was written, another was comrade was arrested and taken before the court, they were released several hours later on bail.
There have been a total of six detainees in one week, in addition to the two people who were detained on the day of the eviction not long after the protests, all of them remain on bail.
