Police protect hired Thugs to Evict occupied Speculation Flats #AlertaDesokupa

info from  La_Directa     and  Twitter.. Violent attacks and charges were made by the Mossos local police while protecting  an illegal eviction executed by Desokupa, the private Eviction Company,  in the Poble-sec barrio of Barcelona . One supporter and three from the squatting collective were arrested, instead of the hired thugs.

”Although the converted ‘luxury’ flats were finally lost the emergency neighbourhood mobiization brought crowds of people onto the streets in record time to block the private mercenaries of the speculation company until the police charged twice”..

Two -UnSquat- thugs

This was in the context of increasing mobilizations by tenants, unions and neighbourhood groups against the wave of corporate buyouts and evictions for property speculation and gentrification in the city.

Finally it took vanloads of  police, cutting of streets, brutal police charges and four arrests to protect the illegal actions of the hired goons and evict the premises.

 

Later the same evening a demo was held outside the police station where the 4 victims were held, one was a supporter oj the street and the other 3 were from the occupiers collective..

The building, located between the streets Piquer and Fontrodona, has been ‘completely renovated’ after the renters were evicted, breaking their contracts,  in 2013. Neighbours who had lived their whole lives there were forced to abandon their homes, according to sources from the Poble-sec District Syndicate and currently the flats are advertised by the Vivendex luxury real estate company as  ‘high level’ apartments .

The block was occupied just a few days ago by a group of young people (although the action had not been publicized), one of whom announced that they would make a court case against the  company Desokupa, as they were attacked by their employees.


In a separate case a real estate investment company wants to expel tenants from four blocks in Ciutat Vella   (Old City). The Raval Housing Syndicate, Raval Rebel and the Union of Tenants occupied the office of the BMB Investment Company in Barcelona to  …Una societat d’inversió immobiliària vol expulsar les inquilines de quatre blocs a Ciutat Vella  El Sindicat Habitatge Raval, Raval Rebel i el Sindicat de Llogaters ocupen l’oficina de l’empresa BMB Investment a Barcelona per denunciar que, a través de…

According to some eyewitnesses, from about eleven o’clock in the morning, three Desokupa employees were planted at the door of the building, doing the tactic they call “access control”, that is, preventing anyone entering and pressuring anyone inside.

Later, as explained by the same witnesses, Daniel Esteve, founder of this company of express evictions, appeared. At the request of the occupants of the building, a Patrol of the Mossos appeared, but after a short time left.

Then there was a first attempt to access the apartment by the staff of Desokupa, which resulted in one of the okupants  requiring the presence of an ambulance of the SEM,

S’ha convocat una concentració davant de la comissaria de les Corts a partir de les 19.30h.

In a short space of time more than a hundred neighbors gathered around the building, at the two ends of Fontrodona Street, following the call that several housing rights defense groups made through social networks witrh the tag #AlertaDesokupa.

The Barrio del Poble-sec union emphasized the strength of the neighborhood’s reaction and pointed out that “we will not accept this method of action based on coercion and threat, and as ofteh as they try it we will react again.”

Early in the afternoon, up to four vanloads of the Mobile Brigade (Brimo) riot police arrived at the scene, and there have been several police charges and moments of great tension.

At that time Desokupa agents were able to access the building and the group of occupants had to leave, with 3 arrests . Some of them have announced the intention to file a complaint against the company for evictions for assaults.

In the afternoon, the Catalan police officers made a cordom around the estate in which there were Desokupa employees; “They are waiting for the moment to remove them without making any noise,” explained a witness.

Police closed off streets around the eviction and  protected instead of arresting the illegal thug evicters ..El desalojo se ha producido en unos apartamentos de la calle Piquer esquina Fontrodona.

During the charges police officers arrested a person to whom three more arrests were added from the group occupying the evicted block . The detainees were transferred to the police station of the Mossos d’Esquadra in la Travessera de las Corts, where a support concentration was held at 19.30.

The property of number 11 of the Fonrodona street changed ownership in 2013. According to one of the neighbors living there until that date, in November of that year, all the tenants (who paid around 700 euros to the month of rent) received a letter announcing the rupture of the contract by the property and ordered them to abandon the apartments before the end of the year. Since then they have been subjected to a comprehensive reform in order to be publicized on the website of the Vivendex group as high-standing apartments.

Vivendex is a real estate group founded in 2007 with divisions in Reus and Barcelona, ​​specialized in high-end promotions, many located in the most expensive neighborhoods of the city, and also in the reform of buildings with legacy assets to transform them into luxury residences (the Moxó Palace, in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, ​​has just been sold).

Its chief executives (CEOs) are Manuel Roger and Francesc Quintana Ramos (listed in the Mercantile Registry as company administrator, together with Alejandro Galcerán Homet). Quintana opted for the presidency of the Association of Real Estate Agents (API) last November, but lost the elections.

Càrregues dels Mossos en un desallotjament executat per Desokupa al Poble-sec de Barcelona

gener 15, 2019 La_Directa   
L’edifici, situat entre els carrers Piquer i Fontrodona, va ser reformat integralment després que a les antigues llogateres se’ls comuniqués la ruptura del contracte l’any 2013, i actualment els pisos estan sent publicitats per la immobiliària Vivendex com a apartament d’alt nivell. El bloc va ser okupat fa uns dies per un grup de joves (tot i que no s’havia fet pública l’acció), algun dels quals ha anunciat que denunciarà l’empresa Desokupa, ja que asseguren haver estat agredits pels seus empleats

 

Redacció Directa | @La_Directa

Un immoble situat al carrer de Font-rodona cantonada amb Piquer, al barri del Poble-sec de Barcelona ha estat desallotjat per personal de l’empresa Desokupa, especialitzada en desnonaments extrajudicials. El bloc intervingut és una finca reformada de bell nou després que el veïnat de tota la vida fos obligat a abandonar-la, segons expliquen fonts del Sindicat de Barri del Poble-sec, forma part d’una promoció de la immobiliària Vivendex, que s’havia okupat per part d’un grup de joves des de fa alguns dies.

Segons alguns testimonis presencials, des del voltant de les 11 del matí, pel cap tres empleats de Desokupa s’han plantat a la porta de la finca, fent la tàctica que anomenen “control d’accés”, és a dir, impedir que ningú hi entri i pressionar qui és a dins. Més endavant, tal com expliquen els mateixos testimonis, ha aparegut Daniel Esteve, fundador d’aquesta empresa de desallotjaments exprés.

A petició de les okupants de l’edifici, s’hi ha personat una patrulla dels Mossos, que al cap de poca estona han marxat. En aquest moment, s’hauria produït un primer intent d’accedir al pis per part del personal de Desokupa, que ha motivat que un dels okupants (que ha denunciat haver estat agredit) requerís la presència d’una ambulància del SEM,

Empleats de Desokupa a la porta de la finca de Fontrodona, 11, aquest migdia.

En poca estona s’ha anat concentrant al voltant de l’immoble més d’un centenar de veïnes, als dos extrems del carrer Fontrodona, seguint la crida que diversos col·lectius de defensa del dret a l’habitatge han fet a través de les xarxes socials mitjançant l’etiqueta #AlertaDesokupa.

Des del Sindicat de Barri del Poble-sec es destaca la capacitat de reacció del veïnat i es puntualitza que “no acceptarem aquest mètode d’actuar basat en la coacció i l’amenaça, i tants cops com vinguin tornarem a reaccionar”. A primera hora de la tarda, fins a quatre furgonetes de la Brigada Mòbil (Brimo) dels Mossos s’han personat al lloc dels fets, i s’han produït diverses càrregues i moments de molta tensió.

En aquell moment els agents de Desokupa han accedit a l’edifici i el grup d’okupants n’ha marxat. Algunes d’elles han anunciat la intenció de presentar una denúncia contra l’empresa de desallotjaments per agressions.

A mitja tarda, els agents de la policia catalana havien fet un cordó al voltant de la finca dins la qual hi havia els empleats de Desokupa; “estan esperant el moment de treure’ls sense fer soroll”, explica un testimoni presencial. Durant les càrregues, tres persones han estat detingudes i traslladades a la comissaria dels Mossos d’Esquadra de la Travessera de les Corts, on s’hi ha convocat una concentració de suport a 2/4 de 8 de la tarda.

Segons que explica una de les veïnes que hi vivia fins l’any 2013, el novembre d’aquell any, tots els llogaters (que pagaven al voltant de 700 euros al mes de renda) van rebre una carta que anunciava la ruptura del contracte per part de la propietat i els comminava a abandonar els pisos abans de final d’any

Des de llavors han estat sotmesos a una reforma integral per tal de ser publicitats a la web del grup Vivendex com a apartaments d’alt standing.

‘Not One Step Back’ feminist demo Snowballs into a Hundred

Feminisms
#NiUnPasoAtrás  (Not One Step Back) moves from Seville to a hundred cities .

 The news of the despicable Vox in power generated rage on social networks and sparked calls for multiple demonstrations and rallies

The slogans # NiUnPasoAtrásenIgualdad (Not One Step Back In Equality) and #OurRightsNoSeNegocian (Out Rights Aren’r Negotiable) have moved from Andalusia to a hundred cities throughout the State to show the rejection of the PP (Right Wing opposition) agreement with the new openly fascist party Vox to invest their candidate and control the local Parliament in Andalusia.

The first session of the Investiture Plenary Session in the Andalusian Parliament took place Tuesday morning  while on the street a huge demonstration led by the feminist movements demanded not to negotiate with the rights of women.

“Not a step back” and “Our rights are not negotiable” have been the main arguments of a mobilization that began at midday before the doors of the Andalusian Parliament, in Seville, and that the feminist movement has supported throughout the State with demonstrations mushrooming and spreading to a hundred cities and towns in the afternoon.

The slogansheard in Seville spread in the afternoon to the main cities of Andalusia and have also to  A Coruña, Barcelona, ​​Bilbao, Burgos, Cáceres, Madrid, Valencia or Zaragoza, etc etc.

The mobilization in more than a hundred cities has overflowed the borders of the Spanish State, and there have also been concentrations in Paris amd Berlin.

The voices of feminists is joined by those of LGBT movements. Thus, the entities that make up the State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Trans and Bisexuals (FELGTB) have supported the mobilizations.

The federation is concerned about “the proliferation of hate speech in the governing bodies of Andalusia” and fears “a setback in the degree of respect for the rights and freedoms of the people that make up our society,” in reference to the initial proposals presented by Vox to give their support to Juan Manuel Moreno in the investiture, which included the repeal of the laws of gender violence and LGTBI equality in Andalusia.

Juan Manuel Moreno, candidate of the PP, has revealed in the first Plenary of the session of investiture of the Parliament of Andalusia some of his proposals, among which are the suppression of the inheritamce tax and the limitation of mandates to eight years.

Feminismos

#NiUnPasoAtrás se traslada de Sevilla a un centenar de ciudades tras el discurso de investidura de Moreno

Los lemas #NiUnPasoAtrásenIgualdad y #NuestrosDerechosNoSeNegocian se han trasladado de Andalucía a un centenar de ciudades en todo el Estado para mostrar el rechazo al acuerdo del PP con Vox para investir a su candidato en Andalucía.

La primera sesión del Pleno de Investidura en el Parlamento de Andalucía que se ha celebrado esta mañana ha tenido lugar mientras en la calle los movimientos feministas reclamaban no negociar con los derechos de las mujeres.

“Ni un paso atrás” y “Nuestros derechos no se negocian” han sido los argumentos principales de una movilización que comenzaba a mediodía ante las puertas de Parlamento andaluz, en Sevilla, y que el movimiento feminista ha respaldado en todo el Estado con concentraciones en un centenar de ciudades por la tarde.

Las consignas que se han escuchado en Sevilla se han trasladado por la tarde a las principales ciudades de Andalucía y han sido también las mismas en A Coruña, Barcelona, Bilbao, Burgos, Cáceres, Madrid, Valencia o Zaragoza.

La movilización en más de un centenar de ciudades ha desbordado las fronteras del Estado español, y ha habido concentraciones también en París o Berlín.

A las voces de las feministas se han unido las de los movimientos LGTB. Así, las entidades que integran la Federación Estatal de Lesbianas, Gais, Trans y Bisexuales (FELGTB) han secundado las movilizaciones.

La federación se muestra preocupada por “la proliferación de los discursos de odio en los órganos de gobierno de Andalucía” y teme “un retroceso en el grado de respeto a los derechos y las libertades de las personas que componen nuestra sociedad”, en referencia a las propuestas iniciales presentadas por Vox para dar su apoyo a Juan Manuel Moreno en la investidura, que incluían la derogación de las leyes de violencia de género e igualdad LGTBI andaluza.

Juan Manuel Moreno, candidato del PP, ha desgranado en el primer Pleno de la sesión de investidura del Parlamento de Andalucía algunas de sus propuestas, entre las que están la supresión del impuesto de sucesiones o la limitación de los mandatos a ocho años.

Andalusia: Feminists leads the Left in mass Antifascist Demos Tuesday

The left takes the streets against the change of government in Andalusia

Feminist collectives, LGTBI, Podemos, IU and the SAT are  promoting mobilizations in Andalusia before the investiture of a rightwing coalition including the new fascist party Vox, on Tuesday 15th and 16 Jan..

16 de enero: Llamamiento a rodear el Parlamento de Andalucía el día de la investidura

 The news of the despicable Vox in power generated rage on social networks and sparked calls for multiple demonstrations and rallies on the investiture dates, on January 15 and 16 .

Podemos and Izquierda Unida  parties yesterday joined the feminist calls to demonstrate and encouraged their respective militants and supporters to attend the events planned next Tuesday: a concentration at 12.00 in the Andalusian Parliament (Seville) and provincial concentrations at 7:00 p.m. in different points of the Andalusian cities.

The mobilization is driven by a large group of feminist organizations that on Wednesday presented a manifesto for what they consider an “attack” by the party led by Santiago Abascal, with its claim to repeal the Law of Gender Violence.

Support demonstrations and actions have also been called in towns and cities across Iberia.

Map made by Irene Martínez for El Salto

Under the slogans ‘Not a step back in equality’ or ‘Our rights are not negotiated’, posters in purple and blue tones have been distributed quickly through social networks to gather as many people as possible on January 15.

Leaders like Antonio Maíllo, from IU (communist), or Teresa Rodríguez, from Podemos( Left) and candidate from the confluence of both formations, Adelante Andalucía, yesterday supported these initiatives and urged citizens to support  feminist mobilizations.

The LGTBI movement also joins the feminist demonstrations in rejection of the reaction and regression in the conquered rights that they believe the pact between PP and Cs with Vox will bring.

But in addition the Andalusian Union of Workers (SAT) called yesterday a protest called ‘Surround the Parliament’ for the day of the celebration of the full investiture in which the candidate will foreseeably be voted on next January 16 .

In principle, the union has requested authorization for the possible days – the date is still unknown – and aims to surround the Parliament with a human chain, the SAT said in a statement.

This protest will take place from 18:00 hours on the day of the investiture under the slogan ‘Andalusia is not for sale’, with the intention of preventing the change of government with its aim to launch “new attacks” against social rights and democratic institutions and public services, with privatizations and cuts in social policies.

The union indicated that the new government will also mean “a threat to women’s rights and policies of equality and a promotion of sexist violence” and invited other anti-fascist and feminist groups to protest, since theirs will be a “complementary” mobilization » to all the other demos on that day.

REACTION OF THE PATRIARCHY

Both García and Navascués agree that one of the keys to the rise of the far right is as “very clear reaction to the 8M Womens General Strike.”.

A famous quote by Simone de Beauvoir has gone viral in recent days. A phrase from the forerunner of feminism that says: “Do not ever forget that a political, economic or religious crisis will suffice for the rights of women to be questioned again.

These rights are never taken for granted. You must remain vigilant throughout your life. ” In this line Dolores García deepens by stating that “any gap that is opened globally, in the political or economic space, will cause a reinforcement of patriarchy” to explain the current situation.

“Patriarchy becomes very angry when feminism takes center stage, not only here, but in Latin America, all over the world,” something that connects García with the economic system because “the neoliberal model needs women to do care of life work, to corner ourselves around the family, bringing up kids”.

The new Family Counseling or the anti-abortion plan in the PP-Vox agreement are other measures denounced by the Andalusian feminist movement.

THE LGTBI MOVEMENT ADDS

With the same sense of “aggression” to their rights, the Andalusian LGTBI community has joined the mobilizations in the provinces and in the capital. Rafael Gil, president of the association Delta LGBTIQ of the Sierra de Cádiz, calls LGTBI people to second the mobilization.

“They have negotiated with our rights, they have been currency on the table, it seems a shame,” he complains. Gil is firm in the need that “every time the ultra right in our autonomous community touches us, even if only in words, they must have us confronting them, on the street.”

In addition, the historic Grenadian transsexual activist Kim Pérez has announced a hunger strike in protest. “We will not stop being visible in front of this danger to our rights, which we thought was already extinguished, in my case, through a hunger strike, which will represent the anguish that will be renewed now, as long as the new leaders do not declare the will to respect us”.

FUTURE OF THE FIGHT

Beyond the 15th, the Andalusian feminist movement is thinking of ways to counteract the messages of the extreme right. In the opinion of Dolores García, one of the keys is “to work much more in the neighborhoods, because sometimes we do not reach those towns where women or the poor are most vulnerable.

We have to get to those spaces to counteract the discourses of fear that lock up women in the house. ” On the other hand, Alicia Navascués thinks that it is not enough to protect the conquered laws but to denounce “very dangerous speeches of the Citizens Party that seek the commodification of the woman’s body, such as the legalization of ‘rent bellies’ or of prostitution”.

However, both are optimistic. “In the face of such an attack, there is going to be a strengthening, uniting different feelings of feminism,” says Garcia. “From now on we’re going to have a unified, strong feminist movement. We’re going to confront them, and the legislative change for the worse is not going to happen..”.

Haiti: A Million People demand Freedom and Justice

Nearly a Million People Took to the Streets. They Want the Western-imposed government out

haiti_in_1789

Janjak Desalin (Jean Jacques Dessalines), said, “I Want the Assets of the Country to be Equitably Divided” and for that he was assassinated, 212 years ago today.

Nearly a million Haitians took to the streets nationwide in Haiti on October 17, 2018. The day marked the 212th anniversary of the assassination of Haiti’s liberator and founding father Janjak Desalin by the mulatto sons of France and their slave-making European fathers and white settler colonists.

The comical colonial co-option was obvious as many of the suspected criminals/Bafyòti who are at the heart of Haiti’s neocolonial corruption and who are accused of stealing state funds, entered the demonstrations, also asking for the stolen monies to be returned and for a stop to impunity!

Despite demonstrations, petitions, and letters, the Trump administration cut TPS to 60,000 Haitians  . Trump Administration for Racial Discrimination in Haitian TPS Cut-Off … ending Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to about 60,000 Haitians.


But the people know who they are. The Haitian population assures that they are mobilized in an unprecedented manner and won’t be distracted…. Haitians died today. They want the Western-imposed government out of Haiti. They want an end to impunity.

The people of Haiti want the $3.8 billion PetroCaribe funds returned to Haiti with a legitimate government ruling.

Honor to Defile – Kouwon pou Defile, was the warrior mother who gathered the pieces of our Liberator and held on to our dignity on that October day, 212 years ago, as Aset did for Kmt. Thank you Defile!

If I am a whole human being today I have to say: Thank you Desalin! End the Unjust System.

***

If you read the Associated Press reporting for the demonstrations in Haiti, Haitians protest alleged misuse of Petrocaribe funds, you’ll see the complicit media are at it again. How is it possible that the significance of October 17th to Haitians is NEVER really mentioned in this Associated Press article for today. At least 7 Haitians died today. They did not die in vain or just because they WANTED to get shot.

They want the Western-imposed government out of Haiti, their resources to be used for local Haiti development, infrastructure, education and health, not flown to foreign coffers or used for the sole comfort of the few Western puppets imposed on them… But the racist Associated Press reporting fails to make any sense.

They won’t explain about the Digicel’s monopoly and role in the fake elections; won’t point to the Obama-Clinton, consultant-create fake elections that put in a far-right colonial puppet government in Haiti to services the oligarchs and sell out the country.

No real context was given other than the imagery of the violent Haitians throwing rocks and burning tires. The magnitude of the popular revolt wasn’t conveyed.

The AP article also fails to mention the United Nations role in Haiti, making millions for 15-years, training the police who shot  the unarmed demonstrators and many say that same United Nations also transported the doctored ballots that gave Haiti the unelected, Western-supported Jovenel Moise, the people did not elect this so called “legal bandit” and the incriminated money-laundering president!

AP and their crew are a bunch of oligarchy waterboys. These racists and decontextualized articles from AP and the complicit media should not be trusted by anyone with a brain cell. They are tapping into racist imagery and stereotypes about “rioting Haitians”.
But, I’ll say his name: “Janjak Desalin (Jean Jacques Desalin”) since AP cannot utter the name of the man who first put liberty into application in the Western Hemisphere, beat three European nations and was assassinated by the mulatto sons of France and their slave-making European fathers and white settler colonists, exactly 212 years ago today.

This October 17th, Haitians came out to say this system in Haiti that started with the assassination of the man who ended slavery in the Western Hemisphere, that day is when neocolonialism and the social/economic exclusion of the Black masses began.


Two hundred and fourteen years after Haitian Independence, Haitians are still paying the price for having fought slavery and for having won that fight. The former colonists France and Spain have returned to make Haiti a free for all. The United States and Canada are there too. This is to be expected.

Almost every Image result for Haiti October 17 2018 ,huge demonstrationsformer European colony has had to fight for its independence more than once. Cuba fought Spain, Vietnam fought France, and then they had to fight again. Independence is never won. In Haiti, this ongoing struggle is part of the fabric of our history. If we successfully did it when we were slaves, then we can do it again.

We can never give up that fight. Haiti has been a beacon for human rights. When everybody was giving lip service to the rights of men, we were the ones who stepped up and said most persuasively that there was no place for slavery in the rights of men. Yet slavery persists. It was unacceptable back in the late 18th century, and it is unacceptable now. The colonists are returning as international gangs. People all over the world must also join to fight them.


It began with endless indebtedness, unfair trade, privatization of public assets for the oligarchs’ interest, wage slavery and a black face to Eurocentricism to rule on behalf of the white oligarchs. Colonialism and imperialism in Haiti will end, the demonstrators said, using the PetroCaribe $3.8 billion theft done after the earthquake, as their latest example of neocolonial theft in Haiti.

It is reported that today’s gatherings were the largest protests and popular dissent to a colonial government, ever seen in Haiti, in terms of the sheer numbers of people who took the streets, nationwide to protest the post-earthquake embezzlement of monies in the name of “helping Haitians.” 

The populace gathered at several key locations in the capital and converged at Champ de Mars, in Port au Prince to show the colonial puppets, put in power through fake elections. They have NO POPULAR SUPPORT and cannot investigate themselves, indict and punish themselves for stealing monies and putting Haiti in debt that must be repaid by the oppressed and exploited Haitian majority.

The Clinton-Obama installed, puppet president, Jovenel Moise, and the other unelected narco-trafficking Parliamentarians must get out of the way, the leaders of this movement said. That’s what the people are saying. They knew the police, paid and funded by the colonists and the small white Arab/Lebanese/Syrian/Jewish (Bigio & Mev) oligarchs ruling Haiti, would shoot them. Freedom is not FREE!

A lot of people got hurt today. We knew this. The battle for liberty, inclusion, and economic justice is hard in this profit over people world. It’s been interminably long for Haitians, who, after 300 years of brutal European slavery, now are at 212-years of containment in poverty while their natural resources get pillaged and plundered by Empire’s oligarchs and puppets.

But, though long and horrific, for the descendants of Defile and Desalin, every day we die to stop the despots and tyrants and this time fight to bring economic liberty to all, not just to end chattel slavery…to be replaced by wage slavery…or cloaked in humanitarian imperialism, the charitable industrial complex, poverty pimping do-gooders or other such sophisticated frauds, dubbed “free trade, democracy, neoliberal economics, et al… ”Related image We know the complicit media can’t tell our story. But FreeHaiti lives – Nou La! We’re still here.
