First conflict in the street of the Government of Pere Aragons and the first notice from the CUP that no mobilization to attack ERC was allowed to pass. A group of about 40 people has entered the Republican party headquarters on Calabria street in Barcelona to protest the eviction of one of the city’s iconic occupied estates, the Llavors Bloc, whose eviction began early this Tuesday and numerous agents of the Mossos d’Esquadra Anti-riot police participate.

Precisely, Barcelona housing unions together with Arran, the youth of the CUP, have announced that they will not leave the ERC headquarters until the eviction of the Llavors Bloc is stopped and the police are withdrawn. Through the networks, activists are urging people to support them with the hashtag #BenvingutAragones. In this sense, the Barri de Poble Sec Union considers that the intervention of the Riot Police supposes “a breach of the agreement with the CUP” of the new president of the Generalitat, Pere Aragons, to remove the anti-riot police from the evictions.

In the rally in front of the Llavors Bloc, in which a hundred people participated, including several CUP deputies in the Parliament, there have been moments of tension when objects and paintings have been thrown in front of the police line placed to allow the access to the judicial procession that must carry out the eviction. Agents have had to charge to allow officials to enter and protests continue.

Upon the arrival of the Mossos to the Bloc Llavors, at around five in the morning, they found a group of protesters who were trying to prevent the eviction by not letting the judicial process pass, for which the agents have initiated a mediation that it has been unsuccessful. In an interview in Catalunya Rdio, the acting Minister of the Interior of the Generalitat, Miquel Smper, took responsibility for the police action and added that “if there is a report of vulnerability of the social services to avoid eviction, it should not be executed. But these reports often come after the police action. “

However, both the Barcelona City Council and the Sindicat d’Habitatge de Poble Sec have denied Smper, assuring that the occupants of the property “have the relevant vulnerability report, which guarantees that they cannot be evicted”, and that this document has been going on for months. It is in the court that ordered the eviction.
