Weighed down by the pitiful popular reaction to the extremes of non-life capitalism drags us to, with most of the population more concerned about Messi’s goals than the misery surrounding them.
Indignant about the union-backed farce that was the June 8 “strike.”
Infected by the insurrection carried out by the Greek rebels, we decided to take action through a new act of Sabotage.
On the morning of June 17, we set fire to a cargo tractor at an important construction site for upper-class housing in the southeastern part of Santiago de Compostela. The damage was substantial. The construction site is partially subsidized by the Spanish state, a state in which hundreds of thousands of people don’t have a place to live and hundreds of thousands of homes are empty, a state in which there are almost five million unemployed and nearly 100,000 abducted and exploited prisoners. Our choice is struggle, the attack against the interests of the powerful, the extension of a liberating social war that isn’t being shown on TV. We know the crisis is nothing more than one of the consequences of the capitalist system. We therefore want to totally change that system, which is the authentic root of the world’s current social inequality.
For all these reasons and more, we have acted and will continue to act.
