In early April, the state government of Hidalgo threatened to "start investigations" and take criminal actions against three militants who promote different community resistances in the region. Among them, is our brother and militante comrade Adrián Medina, criminalized in conjunction with Lorenzo Bautista and Armando Monter in many local media and newspapers to facilitate his detention or any repressive act directly against him.



To save some words...

To all those who are facing the capital-system:

In early April, the state government of Hidalgo threatened to "start investigations" and take criminal actions against three militants who promote different community resistances in the region. Among them, is our brother and militante comrade Adrián Medina, criminalized in conjunction with Lorenzo Bautista and Armando Monter in many local media and newspapers to facilitate his detention or any repressive act directly against him.

In a press conference -exclusive with the mass-media of their bunch- the Secretary of Government, Simón Vargas Aguilar, threw different accusations that surpassed the clumsy and the fallacious. Some of them -referring to the comrades- were: "they are a group of agitators who seek personal interests and put society at risk", "they are a perfectly identified group and there will be corresponding legal actions" [1].

The first stone was thrown by the political class, since in addition to obtaining a serie of investigations ceded by the Municipal Presidency of Ixmiquilpan and different organs of virtual intelligence -demonstrating in this way their repulsive police omnipresence in the streets and social networks- the state government is using the comrades as a media pretext to hide their cheating act of destabilizing different villages in the north of Hidalgo, where people are governed by parties "in conflict" with the PRI, by the society polarization using repressive actions such as that in Tasquillo the past April 16th.

We are revolutionaries, therefore, anti-partisan and we repudiate the manipulation that the parties of any political current use to gain the machinery of representativeness and power, however, it is of great importance to denounce their plans an even more when they put at risk the integrity and the life of our militants.


And... what is the perpetual harassment and resentment of the State against our fellows?

Historically, Hidalgo is a PRI territory, as much by its territorial chieftains as by its safe seats that seems theater seats. It is also the cradle of the big mining and of a predatory progression of extractivist projects for centuries that violate the activities of the Earth and the Environment, affecting the life as it was known by its inhabitants.

The wick of rebellion, as a body reflex, lit without premeditation.

- On December 8, 2016, the villages of San Luis Tecuautitlán, Maquixco, Zimapán, Cholula, Tizayuca, Epazoyucan and Pachuca organized neighbors took the streets to denounce the environmental extinction and pollution in their territories due to a megaproject breach which have intensified, this in a march organized by the communities that integrated the "Front Hidalguense in Defense of Territory." The anti-gas masks and the long banners did not hesitate to yell at pedestrians and civil servant about the toxicity that mist their houses windows. [2]

During the protest, they closed state facilities, such as the Federal Office for the Protection of the Environment (PROFEPA) and the very same State Executive Branch.

- After the first ring in the New Year, the people of Hidalgo already had under their control a section of the federal highway Mexico-Laredo inside the flow of demonstrations of what was the #NoAlGasolinazo (protests against gas price hike).

- On January 5, after a heroic onslaught by the brotherhood of the towns of the Mezquital Valley against a titanic operation of the State Police that tried to evict them in the municipality of Ixmiquilpan, the blood spilled once more. Several convoys and tanks entered in a form of revenge and with firearms they shot to the contingent of the towns, Freddy -proceeds of the community of Maguey Blanco- of 25 years and Alan Giovanni Gutiérrez -of the community of Dios Padre- died in the match. 13 people were injured and it was not a drop that spilled the glass, but an ocean. [3]

- On January 19, inhabitants of the Mezquital and solidarity organizations, bursted in the State Congress after a state march in the context of the protests against “gasolinazo”. In the government facility, they faced deputies from differents political parties -although most of them were part of the PRI- blamed the entire political class as the main guilty in the massacre on 5 January. Cynically, ten PRI’s deputies enunciated that "was voted in favor of “Gasolinazo” and structural reforms because they will give long-term benefits to Mexican people."

- On January 26, radicalness increased when the Municipal Presidency of Ixmiquilpan was taken. In the facades of that corruption palace, enormous messages were drawn with the following slogans: "PASCUAL CHARREZ KILLER / YOU FORGOT US WHO SUPPORTED YOU / RENOUNCE / NO GASOLINAZO / ALAN AND FREDY DID WHAT YOU COULD NOT, THEY DEFENDED IXMIQUILPAN ".

- Receiving attack after attack by the State is synonymous of activist masochism. On February 2, was officially founded the Hidalgo Movement Against “Gasolinazo” and Shortage (MHCGC), a federative, autonomous and anti-partisan proposal to continue the fight against the “gasolinazo”, in defense to the territory and to the diverse problems that Hidalgo’s people have. [4]

Since its public appearance, it has turned out to be a headache for the State, so that those who are part of it -dozens of municipalities, agrarian, magisterial and popular organizations- are in constant governmental stalking due to the effective protests ranging from mass marches, take of toll booths and meetings in the whole country.

The MHCGC emerges after the separation in two fractions of the popular assembly of Ixmiquilpan. What happened? A small group made up of active members of different political parties -PRI, MORENA, PES- and tourist entrepreneurs in the so-called "Movimiento Pacífico 5 de Enero" (Pacific Movement January 5th), sold this movement in a private meeting to Simón Vargas Aguilar on February 1st, negotiating the removal of patrols and burned tanks after the insurrection of January 5th and remove of the permanent encampment known as a “plantón” in a supermarket called “Comercial Mexicana” because it was “concerning tourism” and change beneficiary of a communal land that surely it will end in their ambitious hands. [5]

- To put an end to this list of the most visible actions in the last months (because there is a whole work with the people, agitation, propaganda, massification of consciousness and organization) the last April 5, the municipality of Ixmiquilpan together with the MHCGC decided to boycott -without violence- the cowardly visit of Governor Omar Fayad Meneces to the Historical Center Square to start the police operation “Easter 2017” -with the proposal to make official the return of police force, since from January 5th the police is not welcome-. This vacation period is often visited and local spas are invaded by tourists.

To the action, a lot of trailer drivers of the municipality parked around the Square to block police cars entry to Square. The media response of the State was “there were armed people and the people security would not be compromised”. The event was cancelled.


The result of our threats have materialized in a special watchfulness around our comrade Adrian’s home, even the intervention of his mobile and social networks.

The solidarity cannot be in other way but practice and constructive.

“If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.” From April 18, a tens comrades part of the MHCGC decided to enter a collective timetable of complaints before the Commission of Human Rights of Hidalgo, not to demand through the same hydra resources and mechanisms, the much vainglorious "justice", but to set a legal precedent that expands the margin of repression within itself. It is like a reminder at the door of the enemy that says: "HERE WE ARE AND WE ARE NOT GOING TO STOP".

Before the institutional omission, we decided to take the commission facility and to this day, more of one month of consecutive days of permanent encampment are held waiting for the corresponding authorities to face the mistaken decision to threaten the comrades.

We invite all interested people anywhere in Mexico and the world to stand in solidarity with our comrade Adrian, following closely our social networks where information will be published concerning actions, campaigns and calls to support his life, latent to be outraged at any time.

textIn a time of hardship, Miami-Dade County Ramps up Foreclosures 10:40 Do 20 Dez by S Nappalos 0 comments

In a time when people are experiencing unparalleled hardship, Miami-Dade county is ramping up to steamroll more foreclosures. This news comes as rents are rising[1] in Miami spurred on by international speculators and investors, and people losing their homes. Nationally homeless is increasing due to the pervasive unemployment, sub-poverty wages of the lowest tier of the working population, and the multi-decade long attacks on housing safety nets. We are now witnessing a homelessness that includes young able bodied people some of whom are working while homeless[2].

Now that President Obama is “safely” ensconced in the White House for another four years and “disaster Supreme Court decisions” are averted, liberal and progressive voters need to join radical activists in the fight against endless war, ecological destruction, and austerity. Obama no longer has an incentive to make any pretense of throwing a single crumb to liberals – resignation and acquiescence on “pragmatic grounds” will allow bargains that are hostile to the interests of the working class.

text"Riot" at Greenbridge: Three Arrested at Anti-Gentrification Occupation in Chapel Hill, NC 15:38 Mo 20 Jun by Jericho 0 comments

On Saturday, June 18th, dozens of anarchists and other community members staged an angry protest against gentrification and green capitalism at Greenbridge, a “green” development of condos for eco-yuppies. Demonstrators held banners outside while others occupied the lobby in an expression of outrage against the displacement of renters from the neighborhood. Three people were arrested and charged with felony “inciting a riot” and misdemeanor property destruction, and have been released on bail. The demonstration drew attention to the ongoing tolls inflicted by the development, which was built by a coalition of multi-millionaires over the protests of community members to profit off the bourgeois craze with all things “green.” But money is the only thing green about Greedbridge, as it has been nicknamed by neighbors.

Seattle today is a tale of two cities. For developers, government officials, and many new residents, Seattle is about its places of plenty: shopping opportunities, property values, beautiful views, and potential profits. Look beyond the skyscrapers and a different image of Seattle emerges: that of a blue-collar port city with an immigrant soul--a place of strength, survival, and struggle against racism and poverty. When these two Seattles collide, it's called gentrification: the displacement of poor and working class people by upper-income residents. It's a conflict over values, over purpose: who is claiming the city?

imageAyutla de los Libres municipality will govern itself without political parties; it’s peoples time Jun 28 by Demián Revart 0 comments

There seems to be a trend among indigenous communities of increasing vindication of their right to choose their own representatives, rejecting the model of “voting a representative and hoping they deliver what they promised” and instead using their traditional methods to solve the quotidien problems they face. How can they ask a suit-and-tie politician to solve the problems of peasants if their hands are more accustomed to handle paperwork than plowing the ground?

imagePresident Trump Apr 01 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

For the most part, it is only workers inside the US who can take the necessary direct action against Trump. Only they can fight for the program which is necessary to defeat Trump, the old guard Republicans and the Democrats. Direct action against Trump may be possible for some workers outside the US (e.g. workers in US-owned corporations, workers supplying US military bases), but this is necessarily supplementary and guided by the tempo of US events.

imageWhat is at Stake in North Minneapolis and #Justice4Jamar Dez 22 by db 0 comments

The horrific execution of an unarmed, handcuffed, on the ground black man in front of dozens of witnesses has led to an outburst of struggle whose fire is not spent and whose meaning is still being defined. In this article, I will argue that what is at stake in this struggle is the future of North Minneapolis, which, in miniature, is a question of the future of our cities and of working class people across the country.

In the housing defense movement, we often get bogged down in legal approaches and the banking fraud we use as leverage. But what about situations when it is merely a lack of funds for the person living in the home? It is at those moments that you see the most crucial element of the struggle, and how you can use this organizing to transform the conversation about housing.
