Santa Cruz / California // We Are An Image From The Future U.S.A. Tour 2010
Peter Gelderloos gave a long lecture in the social center
Sub Rosa [ http://subrosaproject.org/ ]
in Santa Cruz about Squating Movement in Barcelona.
During the presentation and the questions and answers he tried to offer an analysis of how the Barcelona squatting movement furthers the local anarchist struggle and how it hinderts it.
After the talk we met with many people that participate in the local student struggles that introduced to us the comrades from Take the City blog http://takethecity.wordpress.com/, as also people that participate in the Idigenous solidarity movement in all the world...
All around the city their were hundreds of freaks, young punks and hippies in the parks and the streets... In the sunset, Santa Cruz's drop-outs seem like shining diamonds
