We want it all
Let’s take the city back
As life is becoming miserable day by day and all you can see around you is marginalization and exclusion, the only way out is permanent conflict. The system represses us while letting free abandoned places die out. We want the city to become an open space where being together and spontaneous joy take the place of cameras, cops, movida and tourism.
 That’s why we decided to get us a place – which had been abandoned for years – without asking the institutions for permission or negotiating with the latter: we reject all kinds of authority, take action in our hands and practise self-management from below. Through the practice of squatting we want to express a different way to experience life and human relationships, and to break the logics of profit and abuse.
In this space we want to develop issues of anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian critique, organize struggles regardless of political parties and unions and support a set of self-organized practices that have been developing in the city (popular gym, canteen, cinema, benefit events, workshops, libraries, afterschool activities for kids, etc.) for a while. We want these practices to make the neighbourhood alive through solidarity and mutual aid.
 These are some of the reasons that led us to squat the building, and we are sure that squatting is right at present (as it was in the past).
