(en) anarquistas.grancanaria: Statement of support for Ruymán Rodríguez (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 9 Mar 2021 10:10:52 +0200

On March 24, the exemplary Spanish democracy will celebrate a new farce, a trial for another police and judicial set-up that only seeks to hide another case of torture by the State Security Forces and Bodies. The prosecution requests 1 year and 6 months in jail, in addition to a 770 euro fine, to our colleague Ruymán Rodríguez for allegedly having kicked a civil guard in the barracks where he was being held and tortured after an illegal arrest. ---- The trial is framed, suspiciously, in an aggravated repressive wave that has ended with Pablo Hasel and Elgio convicted for their letters, and with several detainees in the protests that have been organized as a result of it in several cities of the State. Faced with increasing inequality, the absence of a future and opportunities, and uncertainty, the State's response is to arm itself and strike. At the same time, in the Canary Islands, the "most progressive government in history" locks up thousands of migrants in authentic concentration camps under inhuman conditions, violating their rights as human beings. Meanwhile, the fascist discourse is reproduced, generating a favorable terrain for its growth and normalization.

We do not expect anything from a judicial system that will never go against its own agents. And much less when it is an anarchist who is judged. A clumsy and shabby montage by some civil guards who got scared when our colleague began to vomit blood is enough for the prosecution. They do not care that the detention was illegal: everything is part of the efforts of the State, with the collaboration of some related media, to overthrow the self-managed project of "La Esperanza", which for 9 years has sheltered more than 200 people and that has been replicated in other parts of the island.

We have uncovered the miseries of the institutions beyond their expectations. We have rehoused more people in the Canary Islands than the public administrations put together and we have politicized and organized "that mob and that mob," as the Civil Guards called them while they tortured our comrade. That is why, in their clumsiness and ignorance, they prosecute our partner; because they believe that once beheaded, the serpent will die. What they don't understand is that the FAGC and IACS don't work with leaders. They do not fit in their square head of hierarchical officials that we are the organized response to the need of thousands of people that none of their laws and repressive bodies will be able to appease: life and dignity.

We refuse, however, that our brother ends up in jail for having literally left his health and life so that hundreds of families have a roof, so that they can receive health care, so that they can eat. They will have us in front. For this reason, the affiliates of the Tenant Union of Gran Canaria call on all groups and individuals in the State and the rest of the world to show their solidarity with our partner. Because their struggle, like that of so many others who are already in jail, is everyone's and their destiny can also be everyone's.

Freedom for Ruymán!! Enough of police repression!!
