Dos personas en el centro de Sevilla
Dos personas en el centro de Sevilla

POSTSCRIPT #1: Many have asked for the complete text; we relent: “Dos Personas encadenarons sus brazos al suelo en una galería subterránea a cuatro metros de profundidad para evitar, o al menos retrasar, el desalojo y derribo del inmueble que ocupan en el centro de sevilla.” Original.

  • Maybe I will, maybe I won't.

    But I bet you really don't want to know.

  • This looks like it's a newspaper diagram. Why is it all censored? What the heck?

  • The newspaper is El País. And I censored it for a reason.

  • And I'll be censoring the comments as well.

    For a reason.

  • No, I mean why post it at all if you are going to censor 90% of it except for the horror-movie-looking diagram?

  • Are you serious? I found the original document. Why all the mystery? There is absolutely no good reason for the censorship unless this post is an experiment of some kind.

  • Why post it at all uncensored so that everyone knows what it's about immediately (or with some help from BabelFish, for some) when I could post it censored and people are perplexed by it (until Google comes to the rescue)?

    You describe the diagram as "horror-movie-looking". But is it really? Don't you think it's the most hilarious thing in the world?

    It's the imagined future of blogs. No quick fixes; all instant gratification delayed. Readers will have to do more than click, click, click.

    In any case, you'll probably just be disappointed by the uncensored version.

  • Umm... was your brother one of the squatters or something?

    If not, nice experiment testing the internet-researching-guile of your readers.

    Great blog, by the way. I've made it my homepage.

  • I'm sure everyone is a master researcher. But I was just hoping that people won't immediately go to Google or to El País to look for the original material. Instead have the whole day thinking, imagining, not really caring or forgetting what on earth could those two people be doing there. There. Encased in a small patch of the Andalucian landscape.

  • Mission accomplished. I'm not a big enough geek/tard to almost immediately figure out what was going on, so it completely flabbergasted me. I initially thought it was some horribly fucked up story about people buried underground.

  • I´m from Sevilla,
    what´s is for you the relation of this event (or the diagram itself) with landscape?

  • my apartment was without the internet for a night, a week or so ago. i had no idea what to do with myself. it made me realize just how schizophrenic the whole thing has made me. realizing this, i made plans to stay off the internet one or two nights a week and promptly forgot about them once google returned.

    i made a vague effort to find out what this is and then gave up. my imagination took over and i believed it to be some kind of either bomb shelter or confinement cell. it seemed ominous, whatever it was.

    so, mission accomplished and thank you. this was fun.

  • It never even occurred to me to Track Down the Source. (And I'm an archivist.) "Dos personas en el centro de Sevilla" -- es todo el mundo.
