Can Piella will NOT Give In!

The Can Piella project is again threatened with eviction from on 15 February. However, the group of residents that has given the project life for three and a half years is more determined than ever to continue their social use of the house.
The Cerdanyola Court has reactivated the ”precautionary” eviction of the farm Can Piella, which was paralyzed last October after the social mobilization in defense of this area. The case resumes after the Provincial Court dismissed the appeal filed by the residents. Thus February 15 was set as the date for “voluntarily leaving” the house, and otherwise they will use force to dislodge us.
The group continues to rely on dialogue as the only tool to resolve the conflict. And it was through dialogue that, throughout the 3 ½ years of the project, more and more residents of the towns around it have been interested and engaged in the rural project. A recent example of this success would be the course in ecological horticulture that is conducted every Sunday for free, where more than 120 people signed up.
Even the mayors of the two closest towns have asked the judge to suspend the eviction and file away the case. The only party with which dialogue has been impossible is with the property owners, a real estate company of the Alcaraz Group, as it is based on a purely profit making view of the estate, incompatible with the social project that the group is developing .
To promote this dialogue, Can Piella is going ahead with the activities already scheduled for the farm, and also preparing new initiatives. So far we have made a call for participation in the conference ‘Incubating Alternatives’ for the next 15, 16 and 17 February, where there will be talks, workshops, music and activities. The intention is to invite the maximum number of people to meet and take part in the project. So Piella Can continues to spread social alternatives in a corrupted world.
We will not leave
For three and a half years, Can Piella has brought together diverse people under one idea: to break the dynamics of competition and get close again to the earth and each other. We have been forging a reality with mutual support, sharing knowledge and working together as engines of human relationships. Since then, the number of people involved in the project has only increased exponentially.
In contrast, during the three and a half years, the global crisis has only increased. Unemployment has grown to unsuspected limits, cuts have left welfare in rags, and the social crisis is crying out for change. To make matters worse, corruption in recent weeks has stripped things down to the truth: that the basic problem of our society is that a few decide for everyone, depending on their own interest.
With a social reality that daily confirms the ideas that move Can Piella, how can they now expect us to leave “voluntarily”?
How can we abandon a project born from the need to change society?
How can we abandon a heritage that is doomed to be forgotten?
How can we abandon the land they want to corrupt?
It seems that those guilty of this social crisis will not resign voluntarily. It seems that they can do what thet like according to their interests. It seems that the elites have impunity and nobody resigns.
In this situation, Can Piella wants to make a call NOT to give in or to resign ourselves, not to give up because it’s too difficult, whatever the context, and to take active part in changing this society, that is sinking into barbarism.
Can Piella will not be abandoned,
Can Piella Lives!

VOR DE CAN PIELLA
Can Piella som un col.lectiu que compartim uns valors com la llibertat o l’autonomia, buscant alternatives al sistema de dominació. La nostra forma d’aplicar-los es basa en la recuperació de la masia del mateix nom, per assolir una auto dependència possible, i provar antigues i noves formes de viure i treballar.
Però Can Piella també ets tu, que tal vegada busques com nosaltres, que potser vindràs a les jornades o passeges de en tan tant per la zona. Can Piella són els qui tenen cura d’un hort comunitari, els veïns que ens ajuden, els amics que ens visiten i tothom qui ens dona suport.
Tenim novetats sobre la situació legal del projecte de Can Piella. Com recordareu, gràcies a la pressió que vam fer entre totes, el nostre recurs…
