Squatting

Squatting, the unlawful occupation of uninhabited buildings, seems to be on the increase in Mallorca ever since La Crisis began. I am not an expert in this field and have to rely on information provided by the printed media here on the island where over the last twelve months or so, one could read about squatters occupying the old Flex mattresses factory building at the far end of Palma’s Calle Aragón, or the old GESA building at the end of the motorway from Palma’s airport into town.

I found this shack at the upper end of the Parc de la Riera, opposite Palma’s municipal cemetery where I suppose a handful of squatters are living in pretty squalid conditions. One is tempted to count oneself lucky to live in less grubby circumstances but, perhaps, a little compassion for those less fortunate than us would not go amiss.

The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 17th, 2010. The time was 12:35:08.
