The police evict the UGT building occupied by La Ingobernable.

This Sunday morning, police evicted La Ingobernable activists, who had squatted in the UGT union building yesterday, in an operation that, according to the organization, resulted in no arrests or police violence.

On Saturday, about 200 people, most of them young people, entered the historic monastery of Las Recogidas in Madrid, which was the headquarters of the UGT until 2017 and is now waiting to be turned into a hotel after the Metropolitan City Council reclassified the floor.

The La Ingobernable Social Rights Office pointed out by this action to the UGT that it had leased the monastery to a hotel company and was involved in the process of turning the city into a mass tourism center by “joining the neo-liberal politics of consumerism” as they pointed to the door of the building at 88 Ortaleza Street , press secretaries Sylvia S. and Martin S.

More than 9 hours after the occupation, the UGT posted a statement on its website demanding “immediate eviction” from its headquarters, “a building which is wholly owned by the union and which has been paid for by the victims of millions of workers through their quotas.” The building, built in 1623, although rebuilt several times (burned down during the Civil War), has an area of ​​​​almost 4000 square meters and is under heritage protection.

In the morning, the police surrounded the area and kept the squatters without “water, food or toilet access.” “The police confirmed that they do not have an eviction order, but they do not provide us with more information, and the administration refuses to talk to us,” a representative of the organization explained to the newspaper. Finally, this morning the eviction was carried out.

“Everyone on Calle Hortaleza 88. UGT refused any dialogue, he compared us to the fascists, and now this. The riot police have arrived en masse to evict the #HotelUGT, we have dozens of computers inside, they need all the support they can,” La Ingobernable asked in a Twitter post accompanied by photos of the device with several police vans.

A few minutes later, the group confirmed in the same way that the eviction had been completed without police violence or arrests. “Attention to future calls, because we are going to continue to be tough in front of those who speculate on our city,” the platform advanced.
