TomalaFac – Victory

11 students arrested on 25A morning from #Tomalafac before the protest start, sometimes you feel like you are powerless against their government and the force they use to maintain it, but when you touch victory you remember why you are doing all this.

The cleaning personal of the Madrid’s public faculty will have their salary maintained when they were supposed to be reduced, they wont be any firing when they were supposed to reduce them to a smaller number and finally they will not change their working contract, when they were supposed to change their conditions. I call this a victory of unity, when students fight for people they merely know in the name of dignity.

Thanks a lot people of #Tomalafac for having invited me to this action, when my previous plan of this very particular night would have drove me to jail with my others mates. Their prosecution is today. Hope you guys will be ok, hope you understand why I did not show up to the court.

Yesterday another friend of mine was prosecuted for the 20 December protest we organized, I didn’t went, thanks I did not, they used the famous picture and talked about ” An unidentified person trying to steal the firearm of the police
I can imagine the scene with me present in the tribunal court as the ” Unidentified gun stealer ” …I was just trying to get my friend off their hands … Gun stealer … lol

Carlos my friend, we might have different opinions and a different perception of the way we shall fight the injustice, however you can be sure, if that should happen again, you ll always find my hand, let’s try next time to be at shoulder level lol 😛

25A- Chronicle of a massacre

As always, they were some new stuff from the police, some of them were carrying their ID number on their riot wear, sadly only those who were in charge of the barricades, not those who charge and massacre us.

20130425_182021

We were, I’d say 3000 thousand people, police says 2000, for once we are close enough to agree 😛

twiit3The demonstrators were not the usual one, it was more combative mood, more activist, more radical, this is how looks radical people in Spain, the people the Police fear so much

slide_293963_2380066_freeOn the other side, the police were ready to butcher us on the first occasion, when demonstrators tried to remove the barricade to the Congress, they started the fun.
See the picture below, the black strip is where they are supposed to wear their ID numbers.

I let you enjoy the Juan’s chronicles and the picture album, I do have video that I took, however I did not watch them yet, I believe there is one in which I am recording my own failure to avoid a rubber bullet and ending up on the ground trying to run away, must be fun 😛

I will check them later, and upload them another day if they worth it,  today I am moving with mother nature to spend some time. Packing my stuff and leaving the center of Madrid, it’s not being a safe place anymore. From may 1st I’ll finally be starting my 40 days fasting and will try to document it. Finally …

Sexta Noticias, directo Asedia al Congreso – Be careful what they says is full of shit, Coordinadora25S convocated when they state they did not attend (they did not show any footage of the C25S pancarta or march from Sol to Neptuno), the professors in the faculty were not locked in the building, they were locked OUT etc …:

Happy 25A

First time of my life I get into a faculty, but it’s for a good reason, we are occupying the Madrid’s sumasaguas campus 😛
It feels safe, Police patroling around 😛 lol

Taking over campus building tomorrow morning, recognition and siege to the congress in the afternoon and activism activities during the night to maintain chaos. That will be a loooooong day !!!!

Let see if the cops feel like bothering us tonight ! Thanks @Tomalafac for the invitation !!!
A great pleasure to share this night with you guys !!!

25A – Faites tourner

3 days left before the 25A, we started the street diffusion in Madrid.
Usually people asks question, they usually are open to the debate or accept our flyers with a certain enthusiasm, I remember great fun in the previous campaign.

Camera 360

This time it was somehow different, may be because it was monday and people felt bothered, some where asking the reasons we had to protest, when explaining them this week political schedule ( ILP rejection planned for day 23 and 24, New budget cuts for day 26 of April, the repression campaign made by the police forces the previous day by attacking people in the street with a un-understandable violence  ), people seemed indifferent, people made us feel like we where the one to blame for these social problems.

25AdiffIt was weird and sad … Anyway campaign keep going on, we will go back in Madrid street later on from 1300PM, may be see you then. You can also give us a hand with virtual diffusion, see the twitter campaign below.

Love
Julien

CAMPAÑA TWITTER:

A partir de mañana martes 23 vamos a tratar de impulsar por Twitter el Asedio al Congreso que tendrá lugar el 25 de Abril en Madrid. Se trata de hacer tweets con los hashtags que os proponemos a continuación, para intentar que lleguen a Trending Topic en España (y con suerte a nivel Global). Para conseguirlo, no utilizaremos los hashtags en tweets (es decir, pueden utilizarse en mensajes privados sin problemas), que proponemos aquí hasta el día y hora indicados en cada uno de ellos, para así maximizar el impacto, ya que de otra forma, Twitter detectará que es un tema “ya utilizado”, y al ser menos novedoso no le dará tanta relevancia. Por supuesto, lo que damos aquí son tweets y enlaces de ejemplo, pero a partir de esa hora puedes utilizar los hashtags para comentar lo que prefieras respecto al tema.También os pedimos dar la máxima difusión por mensaje privado de este pad, para mejorar la campaña todo lo posible.
¿Nos ayudas? ¡Gracias anticipadas!

Os pedimos que no los utilicéis fuera de los mensajes privados hasta que nosotros lo hagamos, para maximizar su efectividad en llegar a TT.

25A / D-4

Kaosenlared article

The session of day 25 of April has been suspended due to the demonstration organized, D-4 see you then 🙂

I arrived a few hours ago back to Madrid, I was in the one week seminary in Paris, that was just awesome, amazing. I will write more about it later 🙂

Tomorrow I’ll be in Madrid giving away flyers, join if you feel like, it’s going to be sunny 😛
Love !

Welcome in my reality

I then have left France to go to Madrid, using daddy’s car.
The 1500KM I had to drive converted themselves in one of the most spicy experience of my life, a friend of mine is even going to write a novel about this 3 days trip, that gives you an idea of how spicy and irreal it was !

20130410_144953Funny things is, without the Police forces, I would have spend one of the most horrible times of my recent life ! I have been surrounded by guardian angels which most of them, were wearing Police uniform !!!!

I will get on this road trip later on, I need first to realize all the teachings embedded into this 3 days experience. I only have one regret, since I have being offered to make the documentary I am saying to myself I need to be recording 24/7 or at least to have a camera ready to record, for this 3 days, it would have been a small movie made out of it… Truly …

Meanwhile, I let you enjoy some music 😛
Take care !
Love !
Julien
