There's recently been 'Gender Ideology' conferences attended by former pope John Paul II gathering catholic fundamentalists, right-wing figures and bigoted scientists still trying to criminalize, pathologize or 'medicalize' queerness. There the old nationalist values of 'God, Country + Family' were explicitly arrayed against our joyful lives of love and rage - and one conference was invaded and disrupted by a contingent of our fellow gender renegades. It's indeed ironic that the catholics propagate the myth that 'homosexuals' are in fact pedophiles.
We admire the courage of anyone subverting the gender identity they've been assigned, whatever else separates us. Our everyday battles against patriarchy, the masked 'compas' who overturned a pro-life church in Chile, the women self-organizing against subjugation in Tunisia, or our queer siblings defying homophobic law in Russia, not a step back!!
To the five anarchists arrested in Barcelona (they're charged with plotting and carrying out bombings against sacred places of the monarchy, Hispanic colonization and fascist-church collusion), we send you a gesture beside the many others aiming to pierce your isolation. Our small attack was timed to tarnish one of the church's holy days, and comes slightly after the international week of solidarity. Just as well anytime is always the time for revolt!! To dignified prisoner Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, held under a harsh FIES regime like two of the arrested, we also send our warmest affection in these cold days.
