(Personal sharing of thoughts on strategy from 1 member of Barcelona en Transició as the #SpanishRevolution returns to the streets and squares of Spain #12M15M Original article posted here)

After what seems like a summer break, things have been heating up in Spain, especially in Barcelona. Last week there was a massive general strike in Spain, which was mostly peaceful. But here in Barcelona the city looked like a warzone with fires burning, banks smashed up, a starbucks smashed and burned out, police shooting a massive amount of rubber bullets for over 3 hours. One protester has lost an eye, another has a ruptured spleen, many injuries

We have already seen huge violent protests in Greece, where already people have died and tragically a 77 year old man took his own life in protest this morning outside Stgyma square. Are we going to see a far more violent confrontation between the radical, and mostly anarko, elements of activists in the city against a police force that is getting ever more violent and a head of command, Puig, hell bent on such a showdown… OR, can we expect a growth of a more non violent, but still direct action based form of resistence to the Increadibly harsh measures of austerity?

As a pacifist, I would argue that the peaceful road is the one that we should go down. Not soley for the spiritual reasons for pacifism, but more so that I believe that this strategy is the only one that can get us to that better place that we really feel we will get to, soon!

To outline the hows and whys of how a pacifist approach can and will change the world, I`ll direct you to a very excellent recent talk: Chris Hedges And Occupy Debate Black Block Violence

Desde Barcelona en Transició estamos organizando este increible taller de Dragon Dreaming….dragon dreaming

Por primera vez en Cataluña, John Croft impartirá el taller de “Dragon Dreaming” para la realización de proyectos escandalosamente exitosos.

Dirigido a particulares, ONGs, empresas, activistas, etc. el Dragon Dreaming utiliza la ecología profunda, la teoría de los sistemas vivos y los conocimientos de los aborígenes australianos, para conseguir que los sueños de las personas se hagan realidad, construyendo proyectos y organizaciones sostenibles para “El Gran Cambio” de nuestra cultura, que se aleja de la construcción del imperio de la civilización del crecimiento industrial y del consumismo sin fin, y se mueve hacia una cultura del futuro, que sostenga la vida.

El método del Dragon Dreaming es particulamente adapto para poner en marcha proyectos de permacultura e iniciativas comunitarias.

Ya no podemos acceptar mas inscripciones, porque ya no nos quedan plazas para mayo 2012 en Barcelona. Esperamos de organizar otro en el futuro.

Koyaanisqatsi – “Life Out of Balance”

Koyaanisqatsi is a 1982 film directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke.

This film will be screened on Thursday 16th February 2012 in Barcelona at CAT BAR at 20.30h. It will be the first film of the Barcelona en TransicióHEART group.

“I saw this in a London cinema in Nov 1983, age 17. I’d no clue what it was going to be about -could have been a Rambo movie for all I knew. I just went along with my pals. Two hours later – back outside in the dank night – and my entire outlook, understanding and appreciation of music, nature, life, world – the way I saw everything just shifted and was never the same again.”

(Personal report from 1 of the Barcelona en Transició group, first posted here)

Wow, 2011, what a year!

But already it feels like 2012 is going to be MASSIVE!!!

Who would have thought how quick and how far things would move, it seems we already live in a totally different world from the one that was, this time 12 months ago, before everything started to get turned on its head. As a fella said:

“Did you ever wish you lived in one of those major moments in World history, well guess what, you are in one of those moments”

From the tragic and hopeless act of suicide in Tunisia, when Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight, a spark flew. From Tunisia to Tahrir Square and all of North Africa we saw the dawn of the Arab Spring, from there across the 8 miles that splits Africa from Spain and we saw the 15M movement or the #SpanishRevolution kick off. There was huge hope that the DEMOCRACIA REAL YA movement would spark all over Europe, it didnt. But then things took the most unexpected jump, right into the the belly of the beast into the heart of the corrupt destructive unfair system that is destroying our world; all the bankers and cronies in Wall Street. From there the #OCCUPY movement was born, and with things more so in the English languge, an idea has spread like wildfire all around the squares and communities of many different peoples all over this precious little planet. The Network Age is truly kicking off. We are a connected global community, same dreams, same pains. For so long there was little or no hope. Some, the ecologists and activists that were earlier labeled the “anti-globalisation” movement, had told us all that the entire system was about to fail, due to infinite growth on a finite planet being impossible and that leading to PEAK EVERYTHING… No one listened. But then from 2008 and the start of the economic crisis (pity in english we only see the negative side of that important word; crisis) things began to change. Oil prices going up (again the transitionistas had been telling us all about this) which sparked food prices going up and unemployment spreading everywhere, here in Spain the unemployment rate is up to 23%. Difficult times, strange times, but great times to witness. Where can it all go, what do people want, how are trying to bring about that change?

In the following, you get a few ideas from the city of Barcelona, and beyond…
