This one in particular is located in the neighborhood of Rekalde in Bilbao and is about to be evicted by private interests even though they had obtained the support of many associations and even personalities of political life. The fact is that the local people claim the building for its current use as it belongs to the city of Bilbao. So, they have made this music video to show the amazing work they do…
