The MAY DAY self-run occupied social center is a huge council owned block in the old Raval area of central Barcelona. An ex adult school, it was closed for repairs, abandoned and occupied in 2016 as a Self Managed Student Hostel (the REA). Despite strong resistance it was violently evicted on the second attempt in December 2017, and abandoned again and bricked up, (see Autonomous Students Residences (REA).. Ongoing Eviction in Barcelona/) Next it was occupied during a demonstration on May 1st 2018 as a self-run Social Center.. .. and named CSO MayDay. It continues with all kinds of activities and has become a symbol of resistance to gentrification, mass evictions, vulture funds, etc..

Libertarian solidarity against the eviction of the CSO May Day!
by CNT-AIT Catalunya

by CNT-AIT Catalunya .. translation TheFree

Once again we find that another space freed from the clutches of capitalist speculation, owned by those who claim to be representatives of ordinary citizens and who govern us through repression and lies, is threatened with eviction by of this City Council of the so-called “Commons” (totally fake), led by Ada Colau, the activist recycled into the system…..

Thats how things stand, to the point that Colau’s party shamefully abstained to allow the vote on the evictions of municipally owned buildings, recently raised by the PP .

In this way, they have opened the way to the offensive of the most reactionary sectors and defenders of the sacrosanct private property such as the PP or JuntsxCat itself.

The “Commons” of Ada try to destroy all initiatives that they cannot control through their clientelist political networks. Anything that questions, in one way or another, the “Barcelona Brand”, of which these hypocritical “friendly face” managers of our daily misery are defenders, they try to destroy through the violence of their police hitmen.

This unbridled repression not only acts against dissident groups, but extends to all those people and families without resources who are forced to squat to survive on the margins of the system.

All this is related to the low wages and the high cost of living that, together with real estate speculation, ends up throwing people out of their homes to turn those neighborhoods into commercial shopfronts for tourism.

El Raval, where the CSO May Day companions are located, is a clear example of this. In this Social Center, as in others in the city where self-management is practiced, different solidarity activities have been carried out with the struggle of social and anarchist prisoners, the dissemination of anti-specism, against evictions and gentrification, against police violence, anti-fascism, international solidarity, insumission …

Actions which are oriented to the self-organization of struggles and disseminating and debating ideas to build a culture at the service of social struggles.

Not so to the bourgeois and alienating crap represented by “cultural” elitism such as the MACBA (municipal art exhibition center) or other City Council subsidized civic centers, with which they seek to instill in people the “One Single Belief” in civil obedience, subjecting us to their unjust laws.

The CNT-AIT of Catalonia sees these occupied spaces as a way of building a counterculture that can challenge the dominant discourse and weave libertarian and anti-capitalist networks, challenging private property and the speculative system that generates the misery of broad layers of the population.

That’s why we stand in solidarity and we will be on the streets, when necessary, to defend these revolutionary cracks in a world of conformity dominated by repression and fear.

We call on you to participate actively in the mobilizations that the CSO May Day organise in defense of the social center.

The day they evict at 7:30 p.m. on the Rambla del Raval (where the Cat is).

Down with capitalism and its lackeys of the City Hall!

While there is speculation there will be rebellion!

¡Solidaridad libertaria ante el desalojo del CSO May Day!

CNT-AIT Catalunya
Correu-e: catalunya@hotmail.com (no verificat!)30 des 2019 Una vez más nos encontramos que otro espacio liberado de las garras de la especulación capitalista, para más inri en manos de aquellos que dicen ser representantes del ciudadano de a pie y que nos gobiernan mediante la represión y la mentira, está amenazado de desalojo por parte de este Ayuntamiento de los farsantes “comunes” (que de eso no tienen nada) de la activista reciclada en botones del sistema Ada Colau.

Esto es así, hasta el punto que hemos podido conocer su abstención vergonzante, pero por otra parte lógica dado su papel de traidores a sus ya remotos orígenes, ante la votación sobre los desalojos de edificios de titularidad municipal, planteada recientemente por el PP.

De esta manera, participan y le tienden la alfombra a la ofensiva de los sectores más reaccionarios y defensores de la sacrosanta propiedad privada como el mismo PP o JuntsxCat.

Los “comunes” de la Ada se ensañan e intentan destruir toda aquella iniciativa que no puedan controlar mediante sus redes políticas clientelares. Todo aquello que cuestione, de una u otra forma, la “Marca Barcelona” de la que son defensores a ultranza estos hipócritas gestores de “rostro amable” de nuestra miseria cotidiana, lo intentan destruir mediante la violencia de sus sicarios policiales.

Esta represión desenfrenada no solo actúa contra aquellos colectivos disidentes, sino que se extiende a todas aquellas personas y familias sin recursos que se ven obligadas a okupar o a sobrevivir en los márgenes del sistema.

Todo esto se relaciona con los bajos salarios y la carestía de la vida que junto a la especulación inmobiliaria acaba por echar a la gente de sus casas para convertir esos barrios en aparadores comerciales para el turismo.

El Raval, donde se encuentran lxs compañerxs del CSO May Day, es un claro ejemplo de ello. En este centro social, como en otros de la ciudad donde se práctica la autogestión, se vienen realizando diferentes actividades solidarias con la lucha de los presos sociales y anarquistas, de difusión del antiespecismo, contra los deshaucios y la gentrificación , contra la violencia policial, antifascismo, solidaridad internacional, insumisión…

Actos orientados a la autoorganización de las luchas y a difundir y debatir ideas para construir una cultura al servicio de las luchas sociales.

No así a la mierda burguesa y alienante que representan adefesios elitistas “culturales” como el MACBA u otros centros cívicos, que sí subvenciona el Ayuntamiento, para inculcar a la gente el “pensamiento único” del civismo, sometiéndonos a sus injustas leyes.

La CNT-AIT de Catalunya ve imprescindibles estos espacios como forma de ir construyendo una contracultura que pueda desafiar el discurso dominante e ir tejiendo redes libertarias y anticapitalistas desafiando, así mismo, la propiedad privada y el sistema especulativo que genera la miseria de amplias capas de la población.

Y eso es por lo que nos solidarizamos y estaremos en las calles, cuando sea necesario, para defender estas grietas revolucionarias en un mundo de conformismo dominado por la represión y el miedo.

Hacemos un llamamiento a participar de forma activa en las movilizaciones que el CSO May Day convoque en defensa del centro social.

El día que desalojen a las 19:30 horas en la Rambla del Raval (donde está el Gato).

¡Abajo el capitalismo y sus lacayos del Ayuntamiento!

¡Mientras exista especulación habrá rebelión!
