Fighting repression with flowers. 

This morning the Mossos d’Esquadra (Catalonian police) have removed by force the peaceful protesters that camp out in Barcelona’s main square since May 16th. Three hundred policemen have beaten unarmed people and caused 84 injured in a brutal attack.  You can see in the picture how dangerous the protesters were…

Not the first time civil disobedience is responded with repression and violence. Shame on my country, though.

Political repression cannot change our minds. We demand a true, participative democracy. We demand honest politicians to rely on. We demand our future back. We the people have the right to civil disobedience, and our conscience will not be silenced with guns.

Here is a video to watch the rioting: http://www.20minutos.tv/video/bmuvFKLO-brutalidad-en-la-plaza-de-cataluna/0/

Plaza del Carmen, Granada, Spain. May 21, 2011. 

More than 3,500 people have joined in Granada tonight the protests that started on May 16, claiming for a more fair, transparent, and democratic system.

A beautiful picture of a beautiful dream. 

You can join us: go to the streets and rise up (there’ve being demonstrations all over Europe), or just reblog and spread the word.
