Retenes del fin de semana del Día del Trabajo / May Day Weekend Checkpoints 2011

by Checkpoint response Saturday, Apr. 30, 2011 at 3:46 AM

¿No se te hace curioso que siempre cuando hay grandes mobilizaciones, las fuerzas de la represión también programan un sinfín de puntos de control de tránsito? No dejemos que nos paralicen con sus tácticas de intimidación. Es importantísimo que nos armemos con información, primeramente de nuestros derechos como seres humanos y como residentes de este país, y segundamente de los lugares donde planean realizar retenes, y más importantemente, de nuestro poder como pueblo organizado para control nuestro propio destino. ¡Todxs a las calles!

Isn't it strange how whenever there are large workers' mobilizations, the forces of repression happen to schedule an innumerable quantity of traffic control stations? Let's not let them paralyze us with their intimidatory tactics. It is of utmost importance that we arm ourselves with information: First of our rights as humans and as residents of this country, secondly of where the checkpoints are scheduled to take place, and most importantly, of our own power as an organized community to control our destiny! Everyone to the streets!
