Eviction Case dropped after 2000 strong demo in Iruñea/Pamplona for re-Squatted ‘Gaztxe Maravillas’ (Marvels Youth Center)

 Maravillas is a tool to move towards the social, radical and complete transformation of our lives. That is why defending spaces like Maravillas is to defend all the projects and people that fight every day for a just world …

The occupied self run center in the Palace of the Marquis of Rozalejo of Pamplona, ​​20 yrs abandoned and occupied eleven months before,  was violently evicted in the middle of the night by the Navarra Govt despite widespread local support. see videos..

Then 2 days later it was resquatted by the same collective who prepared to resist again ‘tooth and nail’.

The Assembly of ‘Gaztetxe Maravillas’, strongly anarcha feminist, demanded that the Government of Navarre “paralyze the eviction process” of the building and “withdraw the complaint against the accused persons” .

The festive march last Saturday was supported by many collectives and local people. Thousands of people have joined the protest led by a banner reading “Wonders Herriantzat” (Wonders for the People) and a second slogan that “is not a gaztetxe, but a way to understand the world” .

Maravillas is the center of a ‘Pamplona Spring’ with all kinds of creative activities taking off. The organisation is assembly  based without leaders.

The eviction and resquat come after the outcry against the freeing of the Manada (Wolf Pack) who gang raped a local woman, videoed and boasted about it on social media. (see ..


“It is not just a gaztetxe (occupied youth center) , but a way of understanding the world” declared the large demonstration of over 2000 that took place through the main streets of Iruñea town (Pamplona).

Collectives and organizations, both social and political,  joined the mobilization with slogans such as “Okupazioa delitua bada, gora delinkuentzia” (if the occupation is a crime, long live crime) or “Maravillas aurrera” ( Wonders Ahead) ). The strong support is a new defeat for the right wing’s former stranglehold in the city.
Victory was declared when it was learned that a Judge had surprisingly declared against the Govt of Navarra and archived the eviction case. Popular demand had won out in this case against  private property , and the party began!

Eviction, step back, RESQUAT …etc

Gaztetxe Maravillas was evicted early Friday by the Regional Police. That same day, and after a busy social mobilization, young people again entered the building. The day after it transpired that the Government of Navarre requested to suspend the eviction order and the Court of Iruñea filed the case. However, this past Wednesday the Government of Navarre announced an appeal against the filing.

Above is the video of the historic feminist demo in Iruñea/Pamplona against gang rapists and their impunity .

Miles de personas se han sumado a la protesta encabezada por una pancarta en la que se leía «Maravillas herriarentzat» (Maravillas para el pueblo) y un segundo lema que incide en que «no es un gaztetxe, sino una manera de entender el mundo».

Varios colectivos y organismos tanto sociales como políticos se han adherido a la movilización en la que se ha insistido en lemas como «Okupazioa delitua bada, gora delinkuentzia» (si la ocupación es delito, viva la delincuencia) o «Maravillas aurrera» (adelante Maravillas).

Tanto antes de la marcha como durante ella, diferentes colectivos se han sumado en algunos de los casos con reivindicaciones y lemas propios.

Desalojo, paso atrás, recurso…

El gaztetxe Maravillas fue desalojado la madrugada del viernes por la Policía Foral. Ese mismo día, y tras una concurrida movilización social, jóvenes volvieron a entrar en el edificio. Al día siguiende trascendió que el Gobierno navarro solicitaba suspender la orden de desalojo y el Juzgado de Iruñea archivó la causa. Sin embargo, este pasado miércoles el Gobierno navarro anunció el recurso contra el archivo.
