Spain: Pre-trial detention of anarchist prisoners Monica Caballero & Francisco Solar extended
Received on 29.10.15 (slightly edited for clarity):
On Tuesday 27 a court case was held where it was decided if they extend the pre-trial detention of Monica and Francisco or to release them on bail pending trial. Bail was rejected and their detention has been extended.
Although the Spanish legislation provides for two years as the maximum time a person can remain in pre-trial detention, the State has the possibility to extend it (arguing some sort of exception in the case) beyond two years, and has done so.
Two years ago, on 13 November 2013 the two comrades were arrested along with three others. Monica and Francisco are awaiting trial on charges of belonging to a terrorist organization and conspiracy to cause havoc.
The same day as the court's resolution, 9 more anarchists were detained in a new blow to the anarchist movement. In Barcelona and Manresa ten warrants were served on houses and social spaces.
Despite this we just have to roll with the punches and keep going, showing our comrades that they are not alone and that our solidarity will not cease.
THEY CAN ARREST US, BUT CANNOT STOP US!
FREEDOM FOR ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
SOLIDARITY WITH THE ARRESTED!
WE WANT OUR COMRADES IN THE STREET NOW!
