DEFEND La Chispa CSO.. LAW made for the RICH .. SOLIDARITY for the REBELS

la-chispa

main report by by Sergi Bertran and Sonia Perez at La Directa.  … translated summary by The Free  ..en català abaix

….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”.

can vies mani

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
