Chickens have Rights to a Good Clucking Life

return me to my farmHere in our occupied center we have about 26 chickens, pretty fat and healthy, and they give us maybe 12 eggs a day, depending on the season. Sometimes they just go on strike.

They run free but are usually locked up at  night in case of wild animals getting in. The yard is too small so we feed them kitchen scraps, old recycled bread and market veg, they love it! Sometimes they get a little grain, you can still find GMO-free here in Spain. We all take care of them so sometimes they get fed twice! Continue reading Chickens have Rights to a Good Clucking Life

Rural Occupy : From deserted ruins to vibrant Eco-village

LakabeYou may have read how the Spanish countryside was successfully collectivized during the short-lived revolution of 1936. Now we see that spirit living on, with small groups occcupying abandoned villages. In Spain the 15M movement is organising a back to the land campaign to reverse the effects of the still increasing abandonment due to agribusiness competition.

This will be the first in a series on Okupa Rural in Iberia


 Medieval Spanish ghost town Lakabe becomes self-sufficient eco-village

It’s a utopian fantasy discover a ghost town and rebuild it in line with your ideals-, but in Spain where there are nearly 3000 abandoned villages (most dating back to the Middle Ages), some big dreamers have spent the past 3 decades doing just that.

There are now a few dozen “ecoaldeas” – ecovillages – in Spain, most build from the ashes of former Medieval towns. One of the first towns to be rediscovered was a tiny hamlet in the mountains of northern Navarra.

Lakabe was rediscovered in 1980 by a group of people living nearby who had lost their goats and “when they found their goats, they found Lakabe”, explains Mauge Cañada, one of the early pioneers in the repopulation of the town.

The new inhabitants were all urbanites with no knowledge of country life so no one expected them to stay long. When they first began to rebuild, there was no road up to the town so horses were used to carry construction materials up the mountain. There was no electricity either so they lived with candles and oil lamps.

In the early years, they generated income by selling some of their harvest and working odd jobs like using their new-found construction experience to rebuild roofs outside town. Later they rebuilt the village bakery and sold bread to the outside world.1237911857930_fTheir organic sourdough breads now sell so well that today they can get by without looking for work outside town, but it helps that they keep their costs at a minimum as a way of life. “There’s an austerity that’s part of the desire of people who come here,” explains Mauge. “There’s not a desire for consumption to consume. We try to live with what there is.”

Today, the town generates all its own energy with the windmill, solar panels and a water turbine. It also has a wait list of people who’d like to move in, but Mauge says the answer is not for people to join what they have created, but to try to emulate them somewhere else.

lakabe2_0“If you set your mind to it and there’s a group of people who want to do it, physically they can do it, economically they can do it. What right now is more difficult is being willing to suffer hardship or difficulties or… these days people have a lot of trouble living in situations of shortage or what is seen as shortage but it isn’t.”
