Spain: Operation Buyo – Update from Gabriel and Elisa on the role of a collaborator of justice (06/02/2017) [en]“Operación Buyo” is not as dark as you think
After being informed today of the closing of “Reporting Restrictions”, we are notifying anyone interested that Maria Otero, the woman mistakenly considered to be an anarchist comrade and who has given the name of Gabriel Pombo da Silva, accusing him of possessing a cache of weapons, did not “limit” herself to lying… she is currently an official collaborator of Justice. A role that she has assumed given the impossibility of finding any glimmer of freedom by other means.
As anarchists as we are not interested in the investigative details in our possession until now (which of course we will not spread); precisely these details, however, give us confirmation of how this informer, in all the many and heavy cases of repression that have involved her personally, has always struck deals with “justice”, not doing even one day in prison (she lied when she told us that she had been inside for a few months).
The well known strategy of leaving her free movement has allowed the repression to open investigations and / or incarcerate other people in recent years. In the present case, she was fully aware of being under investigation but was moving freely even in some “places of struggle”: which allows the usual “competent authorities” to consider her, as well as linked to the two of us, “close to anarchist circles”. In our view, although she is imprisoned, she continues to be a dangerous loose cannon.
Investigations are still open and Gabriel, although free, is accused of being the “leader of an anarchist cell preparing to attack.”
All this does nothing but give us the sad dimension of how it is always easier to be surrounded by people like Maria in question: neither the first nor the last of those who have sold out in this not at all new liberticidal world.

Španjolska: Operacija Buyo - Gabriel i Elisa o ulozi doušnice pravosuđa (06.02.2017.)
"Operacija Buyo" nije tako mračna kao što izgleda
Nakon što su nas baš danas informirali o zatvaranju "Secreto del Sumario", želimo obavijestiti, tko želi čuti, da se Maria Otero, greškom smatrana anarhističkom drugaricom, žena koja je odala ime Gabriela Pomba da Silve, nije "ograničila" samo na laganje... trenutno je suradnica službene pravde. Ulogu koju je preuzela kada je uvidjela da ne može pronaći izlaz na slobodu drugim metodama.
Kao anarhiste ne zanimaju nas detalji istrage, koje do sada
Galicia [Spain]: New operation against Gabriel Pombo da Silva and Elisa di Bernardo (24/01/2017) [en]Careful who you call comrade!
Tuesday, 24 January, on the outskirts of Vigo (Mos), a deployment of about 60 armed men between the Guardia Civil and secret agents, searched (and almost destroyed) the house where Gabriel Pombo da Silva had lived for a few months with his partner Elisa Bernardo. At dawn the two were violently awakened, handcuffed and separated… aim: to find firearms and explosives! The search lasted about eight hours and in spite of the means employed (dogs and high technology radar tools), gave no results… among the things seized there is the usual “interesting” anarchist material, cameras, maps of various cities, some cable and old malfunctioning cell phones. While Elisa, despite the repeated threat of being placed under arrest unless she revealed the much desired hiding place, remained free, Gabriel was arrested on charges of “illegal possession and trafficking of weapons and explosives and armed group”. During the 24 hours’ detention (the release of the comrade happened, in fact, the next day) the facts were bitterly reconstructed.
About three months ago the couple got to know a self-proclaimed anarchist comrade who, during the few opportunities to meet, “confesses” her problems with drugs and a conditional sentence she is doing because of an arrest suffered in 2013 on charges of being the author of an attack with Molotov cocktails on an institution in Vigo. Heart in hand, Gabriel and Elisa, respond to the request for help from the “comrade”, accepting her for a week (at the beginning of the year) in the aforementioned house to accompany her in the worst phase of a path of detoxification. After this brief period, the girl returns to her own home… reappearing as informer (of false information) the day prior to the present named “Operación Buyo”. If we had not received certain news that during her previous arrest she had defamed other people, we would have limited ourselves to considering her a “victim of the system”, but that is not so. Maria, this is her name, is currently in jail on the same charges as Gabriel, probably hoping that being the daughter of a military leader can help her to avoid the worst since an arsenal of firearms was found at her home. In 2013, in fact, despite the charges of terrorism, one saw the sentence being reduced significantly (from 11 to 2 years !!!), then converted to parole, with her remaining imprisoned not more than a few months. With all the hatred toward the repressive system, prison and the judicial system, it is inevitable to wonder since when do those who claim themselves as anarchists receive such treatment. Each to their own conclusions.
Gabriel, for now on bail and under investigation… comments on this latest repressive operation thus:
“Inside as outside” one palpates this reactionary arrogance against who never resign themselves. You see that the pigs of every race and condition need “additives and dyes” to sweeten the whole “reality” that is inconvenient to them. “Journalists” more concerned to sell their printed shit than verifying the veracity of what they publish. “Police” more interested in organizing speculations to prove their hypotheses. What is really “surprising” (or who knows not), is that since they let me go (not to mention all that this tremendous affair contains) there was more “protection” in “Judicial Power” than within the so-called “libertarian movement”. Since 2012 there are already 3 “Operations” (Ardire, Scripta Manent and “our local” Operation Buyo) against me. In Italian ” buio ” means” dark… and yes… ”dark” is this whole operation in which a “girl” (with a dark past) approached with the question of being a “comrade” to then want me stoned alive. Those requesting information on this “girl” can read the following links and answer for themselves. I am neither a judge nor a prosecutor. In relation to the shit about the “training ground”, the “terrorist cell”, the “possession of weapons” and trafficking of the same… well… I think the facts belie all. However I understand that in this alienated society and this corrupt system it is preferred to speak / to lie about the underlying causes of poverty than watch one’s own navel. I’m still standing. I continue with my anarchist path despite all and everything. They will never be able to stop the Agustin Rueda University, that I am going to inaugurate in my parents’ house in the country there in Mos, with this kind of maneuver. In my house were seized: 5 winter cabbages, anarchist books and magazines. It is obvious that if they had found even one nail clipper in my possession, Gabriel Pombo would be writing “communiques” from a cell and not in freedom.
To those who continue to support me and show me their unconditional love: I’m here!
To those who continue to want to assassinate: I’m here!
For Anarchy and the end of domination!

Galicija [Španjolska]: Nova represivna operacija protiv anarhista Gabriela Pombo da Silve i Elise di Bernardo (24.01.2017.)
Pazite koga nazivate drugom!
U utorak 24. januara, na periferiji naselja Vigo (Mos), masa od oko 60 naoružanih osoba iz Guardia Civil i tajnih agenata pretresla je (i skoro uništila) kuću u kojoj živi već nekoliko mjeseci Gabriel Pombo da Silva sa svojom partnericom Elisom di Bernardo. U zoru su nasilno probuđeni, stavljeni u lisice i odvojeni... cilj: pronaći vatreno oružje i eksploziv! Potraga je trajala oko 8 sati i unatoč korištenim sredstvima (psi i radari najnovije tehnologije) nije dala nikakav rezultat... između zaplijenjenim stvarima nalazi se uobičajeni “zanimljivi” anarhistički materijal, fotografski aparati, planovi raznih gradova, par kablova i stari pokvareni mobiteli. Dok je Elisa, unatoč ponovljenim prijetnjama zatvorom ako ne otkrije toliko traženo skrovište, ostala na slobodi, Gabriel je uhapšen pod optužbom za “nelegalno posjedovanje i šverc oružja i eksploziva, te za oružanu bandu”. Tokom 24 sata pritvora (drug je otpušten dan kasnije) gorko su spojene činjenice.
Prije oko tri mjeseca par je upoznao jednu navodnu anarhističku drugaricu koja,
