ENOA-RU is a barter caf in Yoyogi park, Tokyo, that prefer to get some stuff,food,clothes,rather than pay money,and there are many pictures on display are painted at the painting workshop( take place every Tuesdays).
Yoyogi park is one of the biggest parks in Tokyo. About 300 people live there,and put up blue huts and tents for their own lives. Japanese society often calls us “Homeless people”, thought I think we are like squatters. I mean some Yoyogi park people live here by choice.
Yoyogi park people create their own life and their own work. Japanese society conspires against Homeless people and actively seeks to displace. Squatting is illegal in Japan and squatters are treated as “problem people”. In any event, the police can remove them.
I think Yoyogi life and work is a worthwhile and fascinating facet of contemporary culture. That is to say, capitalist society created the need for the Yoyogi park community. So we should conserve Yoyogi park people.

The ASCII squat, a free public internet space run by hackers and activists in Amsterdam, is getting evicted at this moment by the local police.
ASCII was set up recycling old computers and using only free software (GNU GPL) to bring broader access to technology for the populace. ASCII is a collective of free and autonomous thinkers, technically and politically aware hackers and free software developers.
The current location of ASCII, Kinkerstraat 92, is not the first nor the last place where hackers struggle for redemption from merchantile agendas speculating on technology and its accessibility by the populace.
The right to communicate is everyone’s good and software implements it!
Stand now in solidarity with ASCII, because free software needs /home!
RESIST WITH « LES 400 COUVERTS », FRENCH (GRENOBLE) SQUATTED STREET UNDER THREAT OF EVICTION!
After the eviction of le « parc mistral » (see http://grenoble.squat.net/#parc) where people struggled in the trees and on the ground all winter to prevent the destruction of a public park and the building of a massive football stadium, Grenoble’s « socialist » city council wants to destroy les « 400 couverts » a 3 years old squat project that brings life, autonomy building, subversive culture, actions and solidarity right in the town center. People there are preparing to resist and their project needs urgent support.
This text was written to inform the neighborhood and local people about the « 400 couverts » present situation but should be of interest for anyone who wants to know more about one of the creative experience and resistance of the french squat movement.
WHAT’S GOING ON IN « LES 400 COUVERTS » ?
A WHOLE STREET PROGRESSIVELY OCCUPIED IN THE TOWN CENTER…
