J15-Catalan police used agent provocateurs in attempt to destroy M15 peaceful revolutionary movement

category international | anti-capitalism | news report author Thursday June 16, 2011 09:02author by #SpanishRevolution Report this post to the editors

The M15 peaceful revolutionary movement in Spain has had profound success and has grown and still is growing. It has inspired similar things to happen in further afield, as Bob Dylan sang "The times they are a changin".

Yesterday we saw on the streets of Barcelona, the second sinsister move by the Catalan state / region, the first being the well publicised extreme violent action by the Mossos (Catalan police) on M27. What we saw was the open use of "agents provocateurs" in an attempt to split the movement, discredit the movement, give fuel to those (politicians, media...) who wish to see this #SpanishRevolution come to a quick end.

Well they have failed, their agents were caught on camera, watch the video, all is VERY VERY clear - Who are they real violent ones in this situation. M15 movement remains peaceful. We are winning.

Catalan police use agents provocateurs in attempt to trigger riot
http://www.thebadrash.com/2011/06/16/catalan-police-use...riot/

Numerous pieces of evidence have surfaced that seem to prove that the Mossos d'Esquadra, Catalonia's autonomous police force, used agents provocateurs during yesterday's #15M movement protests outside the Catalan parliament. The protestors had gathered in the parc de la Ciutadella in Barcelona in an attempt to prevent MPs from accessing the parliament, where they were scheduled to vote in a raft of austerity measures and tax cuts.

The most complete video on YouTube (below) shows 'protestors' attempting to stir things up, then donning balaclava-style masks, before being escorted by police to safety, after they had been identified as troublemakers by other protestors. Equipped with hands-free devices, which might have been mobile phones or radios, the infiltrators seemed to be well organised.

This is, of course, an old tactic. Since time immemorial, police agents have attempted to trigger violence in otherwise peaceful protest movements in order to weaken popular support. With support from politicians and the media, it seems like the police have achieved their aim. The media, of course, is basically not reporting this news. The #15M movement insists that it does not support violent protest... indeed, in its Twitter feed yesterday, it pleaded with protestors to remain peaceful. A later protest at plaça Sant Jaume (seat of the Catalan government) proceeded entirely peacefully, which lends further credence to the protestors' claims. Meanwhile, the budget was approved without amendments, with some Catalan MPs forced to fly into the parliament with police and fire-rescue helicopters.
