LATE NEWS..3rd Day.. just counted a total of 41 separate demonstrations called this evening, mostly in Catalunya, as the Can Vies Uprising spreads like wildfire…
Can Vies was a local self-run Occupied Social Center, going for 17 yrs in an ex union building, with wide neighbourhood support. The Coumcil ordered an eviction for a ‘green space’ to crush an organisation outside its idea of a sanitised, top down, rich only, capitalist paradise. They were warned many times that evicting Can Vies would be the start of urbaan warfare, with 70% youth unemployment. Yet the arrogant idiots went ahead and lit that fuse…..,
Second night of rioting, Demolition machines burnt. Neighbours support. Uprising spreads. 28 mai 2014
On Tuesday, hundreds of people have demonstrated through the streets of Barcelona’s Sants barrio to show their rejection of the eviction and knocking down of the occupied self-run social center Can Vies , considered a benchmark of popular culture and that had been open for 17 years.
On Monday at noon, the City Council deployed a large police force to clear the building . Since then, samples of neighborhood solidarity have multiplied and resistance through demonstrations and riots has begun to spread.

During the day on Tuesday, and for the second straight night , barricades have gone up in the streets and containers have been burning .
A group of protesters set fire to and destroyed the huge bulldozer being used to bring down the center. Many containers have also been burned in the central square and main street of Sants, a big working class barrio , which forced the police to cut traffic.
Before the incidents , some 500 people were demonstrating, protesting the eviction and demolition of Can Vies ,with the complicity of the neighbors who stood ou their balconies banging pans and pots and applauding.
Shouting ‘ If they touch Can Vies they touch us all ‘ or ‘ combative Barrio ‘ , the protesters have walked the streets of the area under the watchful eyes of numerous police officers , who have finally charged again against them causing serious injuries that have had to be hospitalized. translation The Free
