Madrid, Spain – Estate agency under attack in the Vallekas neighbourhood
April 10, 2018by actforfreedom
In the night between 27th and 28th February the windows of an estate agency were smashed with hammers on Via Monte Igueldo. A message written in paint was left, reading: ‘war on capitalist speculation’.
The action should be seen within the current context of urban transformation in the neighbourhood of Vallekas carried out by capitalism and the State. Video surveillance, building speculation, police controls, racism, persecution of occupations… all behind the media campaign against ‘drug smugglers’ used as a Trojan horse to legitimize the changes in the neighbourhood that the market and the State consider convenient.
An attack on an estate agency needs no justification. We only hope that the practice of signals and attack on the interests of speculators, businessmen and the State will spread.
