Operation Ice: New repressive strike against anarchists in Madrid

Streik heißt die Devise!

If last week we awoke to 9 comrades arrested in Barcelona and Manresa, of which one has to stay in prison [Enrique Costoya Allegue] and the rest have been released pending trial in an extension of Operation Pandora, and the extension of preventive prison to Mónica and Francisco, yesterday, November 4, we awoke to a new blow. In this case, Operation Ice in which 5 comrades from the Straight Edge Madrid collective have been arrested. Again the state hits.


The allegations against them are belonging to a criminal organization with terrorist aims, damages and apology of terrorism.

The henchmen of the Information Brigade of the National Police say they have found material for making explosives, gunpowder and bomb-making manuals.


It alleges them responsible for the attack with incendiary devices against four bank branches in Madrid as well as other actions in Barcelona. In addition, as has become customary, they are accused of relations with GAC (Grupos Anarquistas Coordinados) – coordinated anarchist groups.


In this case, they have seized documents and propaganda concerning Anarchist groups, for them a confirmation of their coordinated relationship with them, referring specifically to the comrades arrested last March 30 in Operation Piñata.


So it goes in the Spanish state, operation after operation still beating us.

But whatever they do they will not get us to stop fighting.


Freedom for anarchist prisoners!
Solidarity with the repressed!
Innocent or guilty, just anarchists!

Death to the state and long live anarchy!!!!!

Update 06.11.2015


In the end, the total of arrested people of the Operation Ice were 6. After being brought before judge this morning, 06.11, the judge decided to send 2 of them to preventive prison and the other 4 to be released after the payment of a bail (the different amounts of the bails are still unknown).


During the day, many comrades have gathered in front of the 'Audiencia Nacional' to show thier solidarity with the detainees, and they're still there until the comrades on bail get out.


Solidarity does not stop!

If they search for us door to door, we will resist them shoulder to shoulder!
