Latest News

May 18 - March towards the summit:
Constant update

11.27: People chanting: "Yankees go home", "Aznar, listen, FARC rules!" and "This democracy is a lie"

11.20: Alcala St. (route to the Summit) being blocked. Cops start surrounding demonstrators.

11.13: There are 8 police vans leading the march, 8 more in the rear and about 100 anti-riot cops wathing from the right side.

11.12: About 2500 people march towards the Summit.

11.07: CAUTION - UNDERCOVER POLICE CHIEF EXPOSED. A man in a brown corduroy jacket, blue jeans, beard, dark glasses, thick complexion. At the beginning of the march he is been discussing with another two people weirdly fitted in the rally. They look like a couple of rhinos inside a fish bowl.
They might be the "radicals" in charge to spark off rioting.

11.04: The demonstration starts just now.

10.54: Still more people coming. A placard demands: "Media: When will you see Chomsky?" More placards in support to the struggle of Colombian people. The march still remains in Ventas, meeting point.

10.32: About 1000 people already. Many anarchist flags can be seen, along with CNT (Anarchist Union) logos and placards. The march has not started already.


10.09: About 500 hundred people rallied by now, still many more coming. 40 anti-riot police vans watching demonstrators. Checkpoints located outside underground station exits, searchings being performed. Many cops, as usual, but not as many as expected.
