Barcelona: Notes on the european squat meeting (17-20 june 2010)

People participating to the discussions were more than one hundred, all the discussions happened in the Laforsa squatted social centre (41 av. de la Fama, in CornellĂ  de Llobregat, suburbs of Barcelona). This old factory is squatted for a year now, but it’s quite famous because it has been occupied during several months by its own workers in the late seventies, becoming a symbol of the workers autonomous class struggle.
The discussions were happening in the huge Laforsa’s first floor (with plugged simultaneous translations in spanish, english, french and italian) and food was served twice a day in the second floor.
