(en) alas barricadas: [Vallcarca - Barcelona] The struggle bears fruit by Gavroche (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 2 Oct 2018 09:23:14 +0300

ALB News.- We reproduce the statement of the Assembly of Vallcarca in which a victory obtained through the collective struggle is celebrated. The neighborhood movement, thanks to the impulse of the Assembly of Vallcarca (where also participate and collaborate a good number of comrades and colleagues of the libertarian movement), has signed a victory that consists of the approval of the MPGM of Vallcarca by pulling back a urban plan. As the communiqué says, this is not the work of the Commons, nor of the Colau (as the opposition will try to sell or transmit the press) if not of the collective struggle. ---- Assembly of Vallcarca ---- In Vallcarca we are celebrating. We can only congratulate ourselves for the approval, today, of the modification of the MPGM of Vallcarca. An approval that undoes a historical grievance and that culminates, in part, a long and continuous neighborhood struggle for a better future in the neighborhood.

This MPGM is the fruit of the perseverance in the struggle of the neighborhood to reverse the devastating effects that the previous urban plan had caused in the neighborhood. We come from a constant struggle to stop the demolitions, to recover the framework of the neighborhood-town, to fight against elitization, to demand neighborhood participation to endorse any proposal. After years of proposals, of consultations at street level, of turning over the plans, of presenting a popular plan, we obtain the fruit of our effort.

This is not the MPGM of the Commons. It is not the MPGM of the Colau. It is the fruit of the broader consensus obtained in the neighborhood in decades, away from any partisan acronym. It is the persistent and stubborn fruit of the neighborhood, of its struggle, of putting pressure on the entire government team. All an effort to reverse the grievance of years and years of abandonment and bad practices and to rebuild a neighborhood for its people. It has not been easy for us to get here. Nobody has made it easy for us. But the struggle pays off.

But this celebration is not total. It can not be. The MPGM that is approved today does not include the entire neighborhood affected by the 2002 plan and, therefore, we still have a lot of neighborhood to fight for. We also regret that there was not the courage to approve the plan as agreed by the neighborhood and that the demolition of the triangle may still be on the table for some. We will not tire of saying that in the neighborhood we do not want more demolitions. On the table we have to resolve the issue of private, where we demand that promoters such as Nuñez and Navarro or Fité SL, who were mysteriously benefited by that plan, apply the regulated rent to their future promotions . And it will be necessary to guarantee in the future PMU foreseen for the housing area of the "triangle", that they serve torehabilitate and not knock down any other building .

It will be necessary to see how to complete a plan of uses that fosters the circular, social and cooperative economy, before the economy of tourism and services that provides low quality work.

It will have to give the last push to the construction of the Vallcarca Institute .

That is why the battle continues and that every day we have to be more to build the neighborhood we want.

However today, to celebrate!
