EN: “Eagainst.com" is a non-profit independent multilingual blog consisted by a group of people with similar concerns and views (direct democracy, social and individual autonomy), views that are rarely disseminated through the broadcasts of the mainstream news channels. This section contains events that, probably, would have been censored by the mainstream media or distorted. Also, Eagainst is not a News network but, mainly, a space of expression of anti-capitalist ideas and critiques to every system of intense competition, selfishness, greed and authoritarianism. Therefore, this section contains either republications of News found in other Alternative Networks or even we offer our own reports wherever it is possible for us.
