Echoes from the Class War (Aug 24)

Basque Country: Bilbao fiestas on strike today. The konpartsak (popular festive clubs which are the backbone of the fiestas) close down for the full day in solidarity with two of them, Kaskagorri and Txori Barrote, banned by the Town Hall for placing photos of Basque prisoners. ··> Sare Antifaxista[es], Bilboko Konpartsak[eu].

Basque Country: abandoned manufacture occupied in  Eibar to be used as social center (gaztetxe) ··> Euskal Herriko Gaztetxe eta Gazte Asanblada Koordinadora[eu].

Greece: Denounce the framing of social activists as alleged bank robbers ··> Contra Info.

Haiti: UN occupation force may be disbanded, as Brazil moves out of it. Dady Chery writes about it at Black Agenda Report.

USA: Virginia earthquake too close to Lake Anna Nuclear Power Plant. 

Earthquake sensors around the plant were removed because of costs. 

One of the pumps was damaged, one reactor venting steam (allegedly "not radioactive", pictured left).
