Catalonia – The Streets Will Always Be Ours!

Version in English

Version in Spanish

The full 38 minute film of the extraordinary struggle in Catalonia against the oppression and violence of the Spanish state and for the right to vote, and the key role played by the radical left at the heart of the movement – from the student general strike that started things off, through the hundreds of thousands of people taking direct action and civil disobedience to ensure the referendum happened, to the 2 million strong general strike two days later against the police violence – with activists from across the radical left explaining the issues and how they organised around them. Versions in Spanish and Catalan coming soon  on this channel. Hopefully this will help to debunk some of the myths and misunderstandings circulating about the Catalan independence struggle so that we can concentrate on building international solidarity for the right to democracy without fear of violence and imprisonment.

Spanish Trade unionist jailed for THREE AND A HALF YEARS

In a disturbing flashback to fascist Spain, Spanish trade unionist Andrés Bodalo is now two months into a three and a half year prison sentence for allegedly attacking an MP – even though police produced a video in court showing that Andrés was calming down fellow protestors on a march for jobs, and the MP concerned actually signing a petition for his release. On May 16th, 16 fellow trade unionists from Sat, including the national spokesperson, started a hunger strike – vowing not to eat until Andrés is freed.
