reflecting on this "hot patch" for okupation in Barcelona and surrounding areas and in defiance of the eviction scheduled for themselves and CSO Les Naus
has called for a day of action Oct 2. to protest against the continuing judicially dubious attacks on those who squat, the criminalisation of those who squat, the situation which is developing most worryingly in the St. andreu case with allegations of police brutality and racist assaults and systematic pressure being made almost on a daily basis these allegations now included those of rape.
