Madrid, Spain: Anarchist space La Emboscada under eviction threat (December 17th, 2019)
La Emboscada under eviction threat
Friday December 20th
We write this communiqué from La Emboscada (Tetuán, Madrid) to inform you that last December 17th a judge ordered our precautionary eviction based on a complaint made by one of the owners of our Anarchist Occupied Space La Emboscada.
According to this report, the eviction can be very close, in less than 20 days. Taking into account this information, we decided to fight with all our capacities to prevent this eviction. So we called for a demonstration in the evening on the day of the eviction, at 8pm, and we are counting on your support. The meeting place will not be published until the last moment, so we encourage you to be attentive.
We decided not to remain silent while we see dozens and dozens of eviction processes both in housing and social centers.
We decided not to give up or negotiate with those people who want to defend their private property above all, because we know that private property only seeks the individual benefit of some and we know that the State defends and supports these old class enemies already known.
We know that this case is not an isolated case (we have all the previous facts occurred this last year) but it responds to a normal capitalist functioning and structure. We know that the owner is not the devil who escapes the norm or the common sense accepted by most citizens. So we have decided to approach it as one more conflict to be faced and with all the will and mutual support that is given among all those who understand and are in solidarity with this fight against Capital, laws and State.
We decided to defend squatting as a tool for attacking private property. This attack is becoming more and more difficult for us, but we only think about creating new formulas to ensure that our desire to continue fighting and continue squatting is not buried. We know that we cannot do this without you. We know that solidarity and direct action against speculation are our best weapons.
So we encourage you to be attentive to the next calls, to go to the space and to possible days or events that we will bring out in defense of the space, in defense of squatting.
Against the reinforcement of the laws for our destruction and criminalization, now more than ever: occupy!
Against gentrification and speculation.
Occupy and resist!
