Why they want to evict Can Piella?

The house is propiety of a big firma named Grupo Alcaraz. The property had the land completly abandoned, without intention to recover the historical and cultural heritage of the building.

After the first year the property put a complain to the people, who where there, asking for their eviction. The judicial process took almost two years, until know, which resolution has been in benefit of the privat property and the land especulation.

During the judicial process we tried to contact with the property to achieve an use assignement trade, but the interest of Alcaraz is not to give to the space life, but the maximations of his economical benefits.
