Four days of demonstrations, riots, and targeted direct actions throughout Spain and around Europe after the Barcelona Squat "Can Vies" was initially attacked by police and partially destroyed have resulted in capitulation of the city government. The "Can Vies" Squat will no longer be evicted, and volunteers are today helping rebuild amid the burnt-out hull of wrecking equipment still located on the property (see photos).

Once more, solidarty and direct action get the goods -- viva anarquia!

Spain continues to experience a strong resurgence in anarchist activism, neighborhood assemblies and grass roots solutions to problems caused by the economic crisis of 2008 and subsequently applied shock doctrine. Economic crises and disasters do not necessarily have to result in private corporations and mercenary armies taking control of public life, the people are fully capable of rising to the occasion.

There's a ruined wrecking ball in the middle of that building!
Talk about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat!
