Last saturday night CSOA Kan Ardia was celebrating 6 months of occupation of number 45 carrer sant miguel, in the heart of the barcelonetta neighbourhood of barcelona. the party was also a birthday party for one of the collectives members. For over a month the space has been active as a CSO and it has been growing from strength to strength with workshops of language exchange, martial arts training, and space for parties. at about 1am a neighbour complained of noise and later 2 undercover police came with about 6 guardia urbana. Without showing any papers that allowed them entry to the building the forced their way in and proceeded to go up the stairs, they were confronted by one of the CSO collective and prevented from going further up the stairs, this person asked for papers, was shown none and then struck by the plainclothes police officer, the collective member remained calm, did not use violence and repeated that the police had no right to be entering, the cop asked his mate for his heavy torch and with this he struck the collective member a few times about the head, more people came to this situation and soon the police were outside the building..........

they said there had been a complaint from the neighbours and demanded the party finish and empty, people left.....

Later, about 7am there were still people in the building, sitting around. a couple went to the door to leave and on exiting and without any warning or words being spoken were attacked directly in the face by pepper spray or mace, shouts went out and a commotion ensued at the door. the cops tried to enter the building, again without showing papers, and managed to get their hands in the door which was being pushed closed from the inside, these hands sprayed repeatedly into the faces and bodies of those on the other side, all people still within tried to get to the roof for air, many were in hysterics, crying, vomiting and in a state of panic and shock. the door was eventually shut by those inside and all went to the roof. from the roof terrace people said that there a van or 2 of riot police ready to enter the building with batons and more vans on a further street. the police taunted and laughed at those suffering on the terrace.

below is a 15 minute interview with one of the members of the CSOA collective who also lives upstairs in the squatted living space.
