sydneyeviction

They had stocked the kitchen with food, hauled in crate-loads of belongings and even brought their tortoiseshell cat.

But the two-month long rent-free bliss enjoyed by a group of squatters at Millers Point ended abruptly on Tuesday, as the state government pushed ahead with its plan to empty the harbourside suburb of vulnerable residents.

London: Among the property guardians

rectory

Pic from protest at Rectory Gardens in 2012.

Rectory Gardens, a residential mews in Clapham Old Town, is being emptied, one household at a time. Henry, who has lived in the street since 1985, is among those waiting to be rehoused. When he leaves, Lambeth Council will probably hire Camelot, a ‘vacant property management’ company, to install ‘guardians’: people who pay the company for the privilege of staying in disused buildings and keeping out squatters. There are several property guardians already living on the street.

Saronno (Varese, Italy): Statement after TeLOS eviction

Talking about the Telos’ Eviction…

Why?

We want to point it out straight: the eviction of an occupied space, always looking outward rather than inward, always opposing those who would aspire to creating a bedroom/streetlife town, won’t leave us astonished, for sure. Yet we are astonished: at the impressive solidarity we’ve received after just a day. [Read More]

Dortmund, Germany: Summary of the fight for the social center Avanti

graffiti in the evicted church

Church squatted
In the evening of Friday the 22nd of August 2014, activists occupied the former St. Albertus Magnus church in Dortmund which was unused for over 7 years. Only minutes after the occupation was made public, nearly 40 supporters came to the area and held a gathering in front of the church in solidarity with the project and the squatters. Of course, it didn’t take long before the cops also arrived at the location, but they didn’t attempt to raid the building, and instead controlled the supporters outside. The next day, a priest in charge of matters of the church building spoke to the squatters and stated he will tolerate the occupation for one week. Immediately activists began to form work groups, trying to renovate the building to establish a social center. [Read More]

Kkarkiv (Ukraine): Nazis and Police Attack ‘Autonomia’ Squat

harkvskvot

From Ukraine to Greece, one coalition: Nazi and police!

On Sunday evening a band of neo-nazis attacked the Kharkiv-based social/cultural center “Autonomia”, which provides shelter for internally displaced persons from war-torn regions of Eastern Ukraine. Activists and shelter residents successfully repelled the attack, as well as the previous two ones that had happened before. The mere fact of attacks against such an institution which was set up by anarchists from Autonomous Workers’ Union and other groups entirely by themselves on the basis of an abandoned and ruined building, raises a major concern.
