THE ARGENTINEAN STATE continues its
attack on the occupied factories and
neighbourhood assemblies over there:
"The sisters and brothers workers of
Brukman have suffered another attack at
the hands of the justice system, the gov-
ernment and the bosses. In a brutal po-
lice operation, with more than 250 police,
attack vehicles, ... and the presence of in-
fantry, our factory was evicted."
"During the last year and a half of oc-
cupation and production under workers'
control, we workers demonstrate that we
are the only ones interested in sustaining
the workplace abandoned by the bosses.
We have taken charge of the factory, we
put it into production, we have been re-
ceiving a decent wage all these months
and have even hired workers fired by the
bosses. This has led to our receiving im-
mense solidarity from the people of the
capital and especially from the movement
of popular assemblies, trade unions and
other organizations of employed and un-
employed workers."
"We call on all of them to stay rallied
at the door of our factory. Since the first
moments hundreds of brothers and sisters
got here, now we are almost a thousand
defending the factory. Here we will stay
until we regain it."­ Sister and brother
workers of Brukman. As we go to press the
workers of Brukman are fighting hundreds
of police for control of the factory.
Meanwhile, the occupied space of
Lezama Sur, home of the local community
assembly and Indymedia, was evicted as
part of a terror campaign against the oc-
cupied spaces in Buenos Aires ­ buildings
taken over by activists and families for safe
housing and cultural centres. The organ-
isers inside the building were forced out
by police but not detained.
The government is cracking down on
protests and community projects to intimi-
date activists. The atmosphere of brutal
police control seems to grow more intense
daily. Almost everyday there are cases of
police repression ­ worker controlled fac-
tory evictions, protesters being beaten,
police blockades in the streets, and most
frighteningly assembly members being
kidnapped. In recent weeks the media has
only sensationalized these acts.
