(en) Spaine, prisoners of the 27-F: "I also have a lighter" - chronicle of the demonstration in Mataró in solidarity with the prisoners of 27-F (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 9 Apr 2021 09:07:51 +0300

On March 27, 2021, a demonstration in solidarity with Sara, María, Alberto, Danilo, Jalienne, Emmanuele, Ermano and Luca was called in the town of Mataró: detained and imprisoned (the first has already been released with charges ) after a police operation that tried to link them with a cell of violent Italian anarchists taking advantage of all the black legend that, historically, the Spanish and Catalan bourgeois press has built in relation to the libertarian movement in that country. And all this within the framework of the protests against the imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hásel: which places us anarchists, who demonstrated on Saturday and / or who have expressed solidarity in other ways, in a scenario of response to the repression with those who, in turn, were showing solidarity for the same thing. I say this because it seems necessary to me to reflect on this situation because, it seems, that we have already fallen into the dynamic of action-repression-action that indicates a moment of ebb of the struggle. In fact, at this point is where the system wants to see us and from which we must try to get out.

Around 7:00 p.m. we concentrated a long fifty people in front of the Renfe Station with which, and after a while to wait for the possible arrival of more protesters, we occupied the N-II highway displaying two banners and an anarchist flag. In the largest of them was written the phrase I also have a lighter (referring to the bizarre story invented in the police report of the Mossos that the detainees were part of the same cell because they had the same lighter: an object that they give away in rolling tobacco packages and that is commonly used), the other smaller one was carried by two activists from the Pro-Aminist Movement collectivecreated to show solidarity with the reprisals of the anti-capitalist struggles and demand a total amnesty.

Followed closely by a crew of the local police, we headed down the road shouting slogans like I also have a lighter, freedom for our companions because the State has them prisoners, down the prison walls, the prisons are centers of extermination or visca, Visca, visit the anarchist Maresme until you reach a roundabout and turn right where the Police Station of the Mossos d'Esquadra was located further up. As we got closer, the tone of the slogans increased, such as the police torture and murder, for all the rage accumulated against these hitmen of the Catalan capitalist proto-state who were waiting for us, making a cordon, their helmets on and their batons drawn: there were some moments of tension without them being able to charge and we moved to the left penetrating the center of the town.
Slogans continued to be shouted and some leaflets were distributed to the neighbors who were watching the march until we reached the door of the City Hall where the two banners were displayed and the statement of solidarity with the comrades imprisoned before the The astonished look of a crowd of passers-by, some of whom did not seem to understand what was happening very well: it can be said that some person participating in the demonstration was in charge of explaining it to those who approached curious to ask. While this was happening we were closely watched by several members of the Local Police, stationed in front of a bank office, to whom a protester ironically reproached that they were protecting a bank before the City Council, which caused some laughter.

Here it seemed that the demonstration was going to end, but it was not like that because we decided to continue down, making noise with what we were finding, metal and construction fences, while the slogans mentioned were still shouting. Finally, the exit point was reached, where to finish the N-II was cut again for a while, showing the banners to the vehicles, until it was decided to call off a demonstration that, at the beginning and end, was discreetly guarded ( or so they believed) by some group of secrets. Personally, I think that, although we were not many attendees, they showed a lot of courage and combativeness and a longer journey was made than expected.
