The self-described "Communist Utopia of Marinaleda" is a communist cooperative town whose inhabitants have been taking over and expropriating hectares of land (now communally owned). Recently, it's mayor Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo led labourers into supermarkets and took basic living supplies (without paying) that were given to poor families hit hardest by Spain's economic crisis.
Houses in the town cost only 15 Euros a month and with wage equality, everyone is virtually employed.
On August 16th, the mayor starts a protest march from Jódar across the Andalusian region telling mayors to skip debt payments, stop layoffs, cease home evictions and ignore central government demands for budget cuts.

Solidarity with Marinaleda. The rest of the world under the yoke of capitalism must know there is a very active bastion of resistance.
