The so-called "cheap houses" have much value for their people.
A truly example of that mobilization and neighborhood cohesion are the most effective weapons in the fight against the economic and political interests that rarely take into account the opinion
of the population. In Can Peguera, a neighborhood on the outskirts of Barcelona, the work of the Association
of neighbors, the "Casal del BarrĂ­" and all the people of the
 district are the keys that explain why the small houses
are still there despite of decades of demolition threats.
