(en) [Spain] Stopped the first attempt to evict the Libertarian Athenaeum of Vallekas: the fight continues By ANA (ca, pt) [machine translation]
Sun, 27 Sep 2020 09:45:23 +0300
Last September 16, it became clear that solidarity and direct action is the best weapon we have as a means of defense against the State and
repression. About 150 people from Vallekas and other neighborhoods in the city planted themselves at the door of the Athenaeum to prevent
the eviction of the space. It is not just a matter of evicting a space, it is defending occupation as a tool for fighting social war, as a
tool for creating with our own hands, the margin of parties and institutions, spaces for fighting, meeting and learning. ---- And we did it
thanks to everyone. We have a small exhibition of journalists, city police vans and the district delegate. Due to the fluency of solidarity,
the judicial secretariat had no choice but to go straight. Now, any day and without prior notice, the Athenaeum can be evicted.
More special is this show of solidarity if we take into account how the repressive discourse on Vallekas (and the working-class
neighborhoods of Madrid in general) is developing: media criminalization, constant prominence of the media and the political class for the
cases of Covid-19, persecution migrant people, police abuses, video surveillance, fines and a particularly intensified persecution of
occupation in recent months. All this with the retina laden with images like the hunger lines, which do not cease, the terminations of
contract and evictions, which do not cease, the health centers collapsed, the workers crowded on the subway and waiting for a politician to
tell them if they can going out on the street for something other than working for our bosses. This is the logic of the State and capital
for the poor and the neighborhoods where we live.
The struggle continues in many and varied ways, solidarity has no limits or barriers, and goes beyond the concrete days of displacement:
banks, real estate, speculators, police, media, politicians and businessmen are still there, managing and managing the conditions of our
exploration. We call for extending solidarity in all its forms.
This Sunday we again called for days of resistance at the Athenaeum, and we continued with the call: on the Friday of the week of the
evacuation of the Athenaeum, demonstration at 8 pm in Vallekas in solidarity with the occupied spaces. The exact place, we will confirm on
the eviction day.
Solidarity with the occupied spaces!
No eviction, no termination without an answer!
Occupation, resistance and direct action!
