From 6AM the Gossos* d’Esquadra (Catalan regional police) under orders from the Audiencia Nacional (National Court) raided private homes of anarchists and social spaces in Barcelona (Gracia, Sants and Sant Andreu neighborhood) and Manresa. According to corporate media poisoning the mass arrests are a continuation of Operation Pandora against what the police and the judges believe are the GAC (Coordinated Anarchist Groups) whom they accuse of being responsible for the attacks claimed by anarchist groups during the years 2012 and 2013. (It should be recalled that last year the State Attorney General stated that ‘anarcho-terrorists’ no longer have the capacity to attack.)

According to the media, there 9 or 10 detainees, and many others arrested including from the Ateneo Libertario de Sants.

The state is the only terrorist!
Freedom for the arrested anarchists!

*Note: Gosso is a Catalan word for dog. This is what we call the Catalan regional police.
