A map of buildings adquired by real estate funds

The magazine La Directa, in collaboration with Observatori DESC, Assemblea de Barris per un Turisme Sostenible, Col·lectiu Desllogades and Sindicat de Barri del Poblesec, has developed a collaborative map to point out buildings in Barcelona that have been adquired by real estate funds. Many of them where bought amb bitxos (“with worms”), which in the argot of the speculators means with renters inside. Doubtlessly in these buildings there will be forced evictions, rehabilitation, and an increase of the property value, with no regard towards the residents and the neighborhoods.
