Disobedience, resistance, okupation: Anti-capitalist movements in Manresa, Catalonia
”we disobey and occupy.. for a future that’s worth it.”. (Platform of mortgage arrears and capitalism victims, Bages County)
The revolution takes place in our everyday present …
Manresa, a small city of the region of Bages, in Catalonia, is an industrial centre in decline, with numerous industries closed or in a state of terminal crisis. Like a sort of small Detroit, the city lives in permanent crisis. In urbanistic terms, this translates into half-empty apartment buildings, new buildings left unused, and a historical centre that abounds with buildings in a state of ruin and closed commerce.
