I’m an activist from Denmark who participated in a “Reclaim The Streets” party for Ungdomshuset (The Youth House). I have used Ungdomshuset for a few years as a place for great parties and cool athmosphere. I hate the fact that cristian fundamentalists are to take it over and i’ve been to many protests supporting the place. None of them like the one today. None of them escaleting to this degree of violence.
At the beginning of this protest we started from Skt. Hans Torv where the sound van came in and kicked the party alive. We were about 500 protesters but many people joined in when they saw the cool partying. Noone wore masks or did anything provocative at the police present. Then the party started moving in the direction of the inner city. The day before we had a great protest walking all the way through town with a nice athmosphere the whole way and no confrontations of any kind. Because of that noone anticipated any troubles.
