The night had fallen in Barcelona on the 11/11/11 and there was a global call to retake the public plazas, to talk about those global problems that this crisis has clearly shown. The way from my house to the Plaza Catalunya. An individual going to be part of the collective. Taking action on what's being said on the public global debate.
The gothic. Downtown Barcelona. The narrow streets were people, locals and foreigners walk the night disregarding whats happening in the Plaza Catalunya, and in the rest of the cities of the world. Maybe they don't know. Maybe they don't want to be part of it. In any case, they are there, as part of what ever happens at night on the streets of every city. Any city.
In the Plaça Catalunya there's a group of people. Not nearly as many as there were the day the police, both the mossos and the guardia civil, following the orders of newly conservative catalan government, arguing safety asnd sanitary issues, taking computers and equipment without any care and dumping it on a open terrain, and forbiding the recovery of the personal computers and objects without the receipt. They also used the force against pacifist demonstrators, as usual.
This time, the topics around the meeting were centered on the up coming elections. I came out and gave my vision on what I thought needed to be done, but didn't film that. I believe we must start to develop the alternatvie proposal of an selforganized complex system that develops the commons. My proposal is based on the concept of unocent.org/eng .
Hopefully this sort of social emergence will take place soon enough as an alternative that counteract the current unfair social model.
