The autonomous squatted social center LA CASIKA is an old and big house sited in the center of Mostoles, a town closed to Madrid (17 km).
In these years of history have been a lot of groups working from the social side, like feminist, antifascists, ecologist, youth or just neighbors, making of La Casika a very well known space. In fact, we can say that now it´s a reference for the squatter movement in Madrid: everybody knows, and everybody loves it.

Since its inception, the intent is to develop a network based on a network of cooperatives, individual projects and housing in a collectivised area.This seeks to facilitate the sharing of ideas, goods and resources to foster synergies in a natural way. A place for social innovation, technology and policy based on self-responsibility and cooperation. A project where the productive economies are in the service of people allowing their needs for access to resources and tools are not obstacles to the realization of their creative potential.
