The squatting movement as part of an anarchist struggle in Barcelona.

The squatting movement as part of an anarchist struggle in Barcelona: an analysis of how the Barcelona squatting movement furthers the local anarchist struggle and how it hinders it.

Squatting is something of a break with Catalunya’s anarcho-syndicalist past, and it’s a tradition that illegalist or insurrectionary anarchists tended to adopt wholesale or uncritically, and that they are now criticizing heavily. In some ways a squatting movement helps to create a political ghetto and to recuperate an anarchist struggle in a simulation of social conflict. At the same time, a well developed network of autonomous spaces leads to some impressive strengths in the movement that anarchists in Barcelona usually can’t appreciate if they haven’t spent time in a country like the US where autonomous spaces are rare.
