Most of us have heard stories about (or experienced firsthand) the squatting movement in Spain. But we frequently fail to think about the effect that this network of squatted and autonomous spaces has on the social activist movement in Europe, generally, and Barcelona, specifically. How does the prevalence of squatted spaces impact the anarchist world in ways that are structurally different from the anarchist world in the United States? What do we stand to learn from each other? Author and activist Peter Gelderloos, author of "How Nonviolence Protects the State" and "Consensus: A New Handbook for Grassroots Social, Political, and Environmental Groups," will explore the squatting movement in Barcelona. He made headlines in 2007 when he was arrested there in conjunction with a squatters' protest.
