La Comisión de Solidaridad Internacional de los Industrial Workers of the World escribió una declaración para la liberación de Laura. Denunciamos la represión del estado que ataca la clase obrera que lucha contra su explotación.
The International Solidarity Commission of the Industrial Workers of the World condemns the actions taken by the Mossos d’Esquadra, Catalonia police. Laura Gómez, the General Secretary of CGT-Barcelona was arrested by the Mossos d’Esquadra for trumped up charges that have no basis in fact. It is obvious that this is nothing more than an act of repression and intimidation in response to the growing workers’ mobilizations in Spain.
We demand the immediate release of Laura Gómez and the withdrawal of all charges.
We are in solidarity with, and commend, the CGT-Barcelona, Laura Gómez, and the rest of Spain’s working class for their ongoing struggle against police repression and labour injustice.
