    on EVERYONE TO MOVE AHEAD Can Masdeu is a squatted social centre in one of the last non urbanized valleys San Genis part of the Collserola National Park in Barcelona It was squatted by an international group of activists in December 2001 and the terraces surrounding the masia country mansion are cultivated by neighbors who live in the neighborhood below Nou Barris It sits on 49 4 acres of land Parts of the masia were built in the 1600s and in the early 20th century and the house was a nunnery and leper hospital Surrounding the mansion are terraced gardens that provide food for the entire community Sections of the land are community gardens dedicated to the neighbors These are broken up into small plots separated by bamboo fencing Can Masdeu gained international attention in April 2002 when over 100 national police came to evict 11 squatters defending the house in positions of passive resistance Unable to remove the squatters from lockdowns tripods on ropes and planks extended out of windows and even a hanging bathtub the police waited for the squatters to get thirsty and hungry and come down After three days of media attention hundreds of protesting onlookers chanting slogans and stopping traffic on the local highway and even a solidarity group organizing a sit in in the Spanish Embassy in Holland the judge ordered the police to leave and the case reopened Later rulings favored the owner the Hospital of San Pau but no eviction notice has been given The project includes a bakery pizza oven bike kitchen cafe and a social center the PIC or Punt d Interracció de Collserola which opens Sundays to the public and offers a variety of activities and workshops often related to environmental issues permaculture and organic farming communal living and community autonomy The PIC and the rurbar a cafe serving local and organic meals and drinks is open most Sundays from noon until evening Activities are listed on the website and in the newsletter Infousurpa As of 2007 more than 28 people live in and share the house Community participation includes bi weekly meetings organic gardening housework and two collective meals per day and each member contributes roughly 25 euros month to food costs The working languages of the house are Catalan and Spanish but as it is an international group English Italian French Basque and Esperanto are also spoken Upon entering the main courtyard we were greeted by a table of people enjoying a community lunch including fresh baked bread and several dishes of food from their gardens We happened to arrive on a Friday which is the baking day After wandering around the grounds and leafing through their extensive zine and radical left library for over 2 hours it became very clear that Can Masdeu was organizing beyond the local community and that it had become an important link in an international network of social organizations and movement carrying genuine social ecological and political value many of its
