….We are on the outskirts of Lleida city (in Lleida province). This area has undergone a major change in recent years… where there were small family orchards and country houses today they have built fast food chains, department stores, hotels and luxury villas. The companies and new owners of the land have been moving out the locals, buying up their land at high prices…
After a lengthy legal process against four ex-occupiers the vibrant, active, self-managed SPARK project among the orchards of Lleida is condemned to be evicted by capitalist speculation. ”The Court Sentence against La Chispa condemns the people judged to 3 months / fine at the rate of 5 euros a day. The ruling also agreed to the eviction of all persons who are in the CSO Chispa and that the speculative company (UA sl) be reimbursed for ‘damage to property’. We want to make clear that this house. if not for for being squatted for nine years, would have already collapsed due to the state of abandonment; and that the only intention is to demolish the house to speculate on the price of the ground”.

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…..,

The protest against the eviction of La Carboneria collapses downtown BCN About 1,500 people take Sant Antoni against the closure of community center The march ends with the burning of containers and ATMs
What could have diminished the mobilization against the eviction of the squatted social center La Carboneria – was that it coincided with the day of the growing number of protests against the rising price of public transport – served this Wednesday night instead to boost a demonstration that soon became an expression of anger, with many burnt containers , smashed ATMs and police chases and charges through Ciutat Vella and Exiample .
The start of the march to protest the eviction at noon was delayed until after nine at night to wait for the hundreds of people from seven in the evening demonstrating throughout the metro . It was at that time when about 1,500 people gathered in the Plaza de la Universitat and walked down to the Sant Antoni barrio to show their rejection of the eviction, amid a huge police presence .
In Spain hundreds of thousands of people have been evicted from their homes after the capitalist property speculation bubble popped and they were left paying impossible mortgages. Evictions have been running at over 500 a day!.
Under Spanish law you not only lose the house but have to go on paying literally forever.There was a spate of victims committing suicide and a new law to change all this was proposed by a peoples coalition (PAH) wth more than a million supporters (organised locally without leaders).

After holding out for more than 5 months since the Court Order the Can Piella ‘Land and Liberty’ occupation was evicted yesterday, on the 2nd anniversary of the start if the 15M ‘Take The Streets’ uprising. The squat had become a symbol of anarchist type collective action, permaculture, and resistance to rampant capitalist speculation, with countless mobilisations and widespread public support, even by local councils.
