Right of Rebellion
An iniciative to generate a massive movement of civil disobedience
If we organize we will be able to create and defend spaces free of control and opression by the power structure. When we manage to do that, the State will not be blocked immediately; instead, it will struggle to supress our counter-power in order to save its hegemonical status. Thus, we are opening a space where the strategies of action need to be very well defined to transform into solid options that include a significant part of society.
In this context we propose the civil disobedience of the State laws that affect us. As individuals and as free beings, civil disobedience and self-organization in all aspects of our life are two of our basic tools for political action. As a massively organized people we have the responsability of shaping the environment where we live and act the way we want it to be.  
As civil disobedience we understand a legitimate action (albeit outside of the law) which is carried out in a conscious manner and made public in order to achieve a total or partial transformation of society. The bet for civil disobedience is a bet for pedagogy through action. A bet to build a constructive path to visibilize the conflict, to communicate by example, by personal and collective compromise. It’s a path of action that will empower us as persons and which has had important historical precedents in the last century.
In this framework of disobedience, one of the present strategies is the initiative “We will exercise the right of rebellion”, which started  last September by declaring the illegitimacy of the institutions that manage the State. The manifesto that originated this initiative brought together people commited to insubmission to the State and disobedience  to every law or regulation that we consider unjust.
The organisation of this initiative has been based on the assembly process. Collaborative processes have been used to facilitate the realization of actions of disobedience aswell as the access to tools to guide the process.  Thus, periodic gatherings in assemblies and a internet-based collaborative work have enabled the joint work of a number of people in diferent parts of the world, and in particular in diferent parts of Spain.
We’re millions of people and we’re ready to act. We need to let go of our fears and insecurities so we can announce our compromise in public, so we can share in our environment the experience of dignity, so we can facilitate the liberation of  each and everyone of us and live in accordance to our ideals.
Economic desobedience for self-management
The proposal of Right of Rebellion is not just a proposal for a coordinated civil disobedience. It is also a strategy for action with the goal of deepening in the compromise with self-management and the building of alternatives to capitalism. For this reason, from our manifesto we call for total fiscal resistance to the State, so that the resources  can be redirected to fiscal self-management by the local assemblies; it is these, and not the governmental institutions, which deserve to manage sovereignty. (p. 16)
At derechoderebelion.net we have coordinated the preparation of a manual of economic disobedience, which you can find at:  http://www.derechoderebelion.net/manual and currently we are starting the creation of offices for economic disobedience, as tools to support initiatives such as tax resistance, self-organization of debtors and bankrupcy as a form of action. (p. 17)

We will exercise our right of rebellion.

Join the manifest of a rebel new dignity

“When the government violates the people’s rights the insurrection is for people and for each and all of us, the most sacred right and the most neccesary of their duties”  (Human and Citizen Rights Declaration 1793) The current Spanish Constitution, enacted by the international finnancial power  and approved without citizen´’s consent, not only does not represent us, but we do not recognize  it as legally binding for us. In its article 135.3 it says: “The credit to satisfy the interests and capital of Administrations public debt  will be understood as always included in the state of expenses in the budgets and its due payment will have the highest priority”.  By approving this modification of the Constitution whithout a referendum, its has been  fully proved that popular sovereignty does not control the State, which has been  abducted by economic power. A government that acts only for the profits of a few is  illegitimate. As the Spanish Penal Code says: “Those who rise up publicly and violently for any of the following purposes will be considered guilty of rebellion: Repeal, suspend or amend fully or partially the Constitution” For that reason, and due to the hasty, selfish and antidemocratic character of this recent amendment of the Constitution, we can determine that the criminals are now in the government and the structures holding or supporting it. The right of rebellion has been recongnized in the international  law for more than two centuries, through, for example the “Human and citizen rights Declaration”. Its function is to ensure the right of rebellion for the common interests, to deal with circumnstances such as the ones we are living now.  To fight against the finnancial coup of the economic upper layer,  we have the right of rebellion in the lower one. Our commitment is with common welfare, and because of it,  to comply with our legitimate duty as citizens,  we declare ourselves rebels to Constitution, disobedient to the Government  and any authority representing it. This is why whe declare ourselves as citizens of the popular assemblies, assemblies  with postcapitalist proyects in which we participate. This is the way we exercise  our soveraignty. Our commitment is to do anything on our hands to build a new popular power to  achieve a society where decissions are taken trully by people. We understand that after the huge accumulation of indignation that we have lived the better way to recover dignity is by means of rebellion. We understand as dignity to be capable of disobeying unfair laws and/or laws contrary  to people’s wellfare. For all this reasons we appeal people to start and spread an  action of total fiscal resistance in Spain to those who are in control to demonstrate  that we are not going to pay “their debt”, because we do not recognize this Constitution. A fiscal desobedience to promote assembly self-management and give the  highest priority to participatory budgeting of resources that we consider really public. Because of the situation we live in Spain, which is similar to other countries in the world,  and because the finnancial power is now global, we would like to encourage other people all over the world to claim their right to rebellion by means of manifests like this one. Fiscal resistance was one of the civil disobedience strategies that lead India to the independence from the british empire; now it can be a key strategy to get independence from  global finnancial dictatorship. Indignation time is over, now we are ¡a rebel new dignity!
