Social Street Castelló, nuevas formas y espacios de relacionalidad

Tras crear un grupo cerrado de Facebook para los vecinos, el Grupo San José Obreroy la Plaza Pintor Sorrolla de Castellón se han convertido en los primeros vecindarios adheridos al movimiento Social Street Castellón. 

Social Street es un movimiento ciudadano surgido en las calles de la ciudad de Bolonia (Italia) durante el mes de noviembre de 2013. Desde sus inicios, el objetivo del movimiento Social Street ha sido la socialización del vecindario a través del fomento de relaciones interpersonales que permitanconocer los intereses y las necesidades cotidianas de la gente, compartir experiencias e inquietudes con la gente que vive en deredor, llevar a cabo actividades con un interés mutuo, cooperar en el desarrollo y mejora del vecindario, solucionar problemas de distinta índole, hablar, tomar café, intercambiar puntos de vista, etcétera.... En definitiva, para crear espación de relacionalidad urbana en un mundo cada vez más atomizado, desencarnado e digitalizado.

Spanish revolution! Manifesto of the movement [English version]

Real Democracy NOW! We are not good in the hands of politicians and bankers

We are ordinary people. We are like you: people, who get up every morning to study, work or find a job, people who have family and friends. People, who work hard every day to provide a better future for those around us.

Some of us consider ourselves progressive, others conservative. Some of us are believers, some not. Some of us have clearly defined ideologies, others are apolitical, but we are all concerned and angry about the political, economic, and social outlook which we see around us: corruption among politicians, businessmen, bankers, leaving us helpless, without a voice.

This situation has become normal, a daily suffering, without hope. But if we join forces, we can change it. It’s time to change things, time to build a better society together. Therefore, we strongly argue that:

The priorities of any advanced society must be equality, progress, solidarity, freedom of culture, sustainability and development, welfare and people’s happiness.

These are inalienable truths that we should abide by in our society: the right to housing, employment, culture, health, education, political participation, free personal development, and consumer rights for a healthy and happy life.

The current status of our government and economic system does not take care of these rights, and in many ways is an obstacle to human progress.

Democracy belongs to the people (demos = people, krátos = government) which means that government is made of every one of us. However, in Spain most of the political class does not even listen to us. Politicians should be bringing our voice to the institutions, facilitating the political participation of citizens through direct channels that provide the greatest benefit to the wider society, not to get rich and prosper at our expense, attending only to the dictatorship of major economic powers and holding them in power through a bipartidism headed by the immovable acronym PP & PSOE.

Lust for power and its accumulation in only a few; create inequality, tension and injustice, which leads to violence, which we reject. The obsolete and unnatural economic model fuels the social machinery in a growing spiral that consumes itself by enriching a few and sends into poverty the rest. Until the collapse.

The will and purpose of the current system is the accumulation of money, not regarding efficiency and the welfare of society. Wasting resources, destroying the planet, creating unemployment and unhappy consumers.

Citizens are the gears of a machine designed to enrich a minority which does not regard our needs. We are anonymous, but without us none of this would exist, because we move the world.
If as a society we learn to not trust our future to an abstract economy, which never returns benefits for the most, we can eliminate the abuse that we are all suffering.
We need an ethical revolution. Instead of placing money above human beings, we shall put it back to our service. We are people, not products. I am not a product of what I buy, why I buy and who I buy from.

For all of the above, I am outraged.
I think I can change it.
I think I can help.
I know that together we can.I think I can help.

I know that together we can.

  1. Estoy totalmente de acuerdo con el post, nuestros antepasados lucharon y lo pagaron con sangre para que nosotros tengamos derechos y vivamos en aquello que llamamos democracia.Dicen que somos libres, que tenemos derechos y que "ellos" luchan para que sigan teniendo derecho, pero en cuanto alguno se manifieste (hecho que sucede muy de vez en cuando en este país) aparecen los cuerpos de policía para imponer orden de forma violenta (lo ocurrido en Barcelona). Si somos libres ¿por que no nos dejan mostrar nuestra opinión si difiere con la suya?
    Cada uno de nosotros estamos y debemos estar implicados en política ya que es la que maneja el mundo y debemos estar alerta con todo aquello que pasa. En lugar de contentarnos con la situación y esperar a que ellos hagan algo por nosotros cada uno debería reflexionar y pensar en posibles soluciones y luchar por mantener todo aquello que nuestros antepasados lucharon por tener y no lo disfrutaron y nosotros le quitamos valor ya que lo poseemos.Cuando nacemos con derechos y responsabilidades nos olvidamos de que tenemos que mejorarlos y mantenerlos para generaciones futuras.
