Statement from CND – CREU NEGRA DUATLETICA

On the 15th May this year five anarchists were 
arrested in the surrounding area of Barcelona. 
Their crime? Taking part in demonstrations that 
ended in riots and spreading their ideology 
through Facebook groups. For that reason they 
have been accused of belonging to a terrorist 
group, supporting terrorism, recruitment and 
indoctrination.

As proof of their guilt in these crimes, the 
police have shown the material seized in their 
homes: anarchists flags, books on libertarian 
philosophy, black clothes and some fireworks.

Despite the fact that these allegations have no 
sense and there being no clear "evidence", their 
ideology against the state was sufficient for 
the judge Pedraz to condemn them, each to their 
own seperate prison in Madrid: Soto del Real, 
Navalcarnero, Aranjuez, Extremera and Alcalá 
Meco, on regime FIES 3.

Their situation cannot be misinterpreted as an 
isolated case, but as yet one more action from 
the repressive strategy of the Spanish State, 
which is currently re-tracing past steps to 
reinforce their authoritarianism. The arrest of 
these five anarchists is a precedent that will 
be used in the future to justify indiscriminate 
persecution, something that any person of any 
country should not allow.

In this context we call for solidarity of all 
those who appreciate the injustice suffered by 
our fellow comrades, get out in the streets of 
your cities on the June 21st, bring banners and 
candles so they can feel our warmth even when 
they are isolated in their cells.

We ask you to spread this text and to share 
their situation by all means possible, everyone 
needs to know about the political persecution 
by the Spanish State.

FREEDOM IS THE CRIME THEY PERSECUTE!

STOP REPRESSION NOW!

FREEDOM FOR THE BARCELONA 5!

THE EVENING OF JUNE 21ST, EVERYBODY GET OUT IN 
THE STREETS!!
