Amsterdam (Netherlands): Fight for your right to housing! Stop the squat-ban!

In about one month Queen Beatrix will sign the new law to illegalize squatting in NL. To prevent homelessness we should squat her little apartment at Dam Square in Amsterdam. The Palace is big enough, so if you face eviction, come squatting!

The ban of squatting (kraakverbod) is a consequence of long term lobbying by rich landlords and real estate agents. Their friends in parliament have a majority now, which makes the ban of squatting likely to happen. On December 1st, the first chamber of Dutch parliament will have to decide, if the proposed law is passed on to Beatrix, or if adjustments or required. We attack that day to start our resistance!

Belgium: Re-occupation of the Lappersfort forest! Call out for support

In the dark chilly woods, a new wind is stirring; winter is moving in, and with the cold nights come a new band of pirates and elves tiptoeing their way between the trees.

After 14 months of okupation, and a pointless pact with the devil signed by 3 previous okupants stating that the forest should be voluntarily packed up by November the 30th 2009, it seemed that the struggle to save the Lappersfort was coming to an end…

But all ends are new beginnings in disguise, and a new seed of mutiny has been sewn in the fertile soil of the forest.As long as it stands threatened, the Lappersfort will be okupied by humans to defend it.

Torino (Italy): Demonstration in solidarity with the squatters, 19 dec. 2009

state-agitati

Solidarietà… Solidarity… Solidaridad… Solidarité…

 

Torino city council, with the “leftist” Chiamparino at its head, has decided last november 16th to evict every squat in Torino. The anarchist squats are especially threatened: l’Asilo, the Barocchio, El Paso, Mezcal, Lostilo, la Boccia squat, etc.

 

This a sort of declaration of war against the squat movement. The Torino’s anarchist and autonomous squats call to mobilization and resistance.

 

The anarchist squat movement in Torino is an important reality for near than 30 years. Every solidarity action is welcome, send messages to squat at squat.net and to the websites Tutto Squat and Indymedia-Piemonte. You also can demonstrate in front of italian embassies and consulates, and other italian representations.

Welcome in Torino also.

Spread the info.

Athens (Greece): Statement by the Skaramanga squat about a recent arrest

“The state knows it, we know it, its time for society to learn it as well”

On Friday, 13th November Antigoni, a 22-year old comrade was arrested only meters away from the Patission and Skaramanga squat in Athens. Accused with participation to the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”, she was released on bail only days later – a solid proof of the state’s non-existent evidence against her. The following text on her arrest was published by the Patission and Skaramanga squat’s assembly on 16 November:

The state knows it, we know it, its time for society to learn it as well

Friday 13/11 after midnight: a group of security policemen lie and wait at the junction of Patission and Ipeirou St. In our squat (just 50 m from the aforementioned spot), a birthday party with hundreds of people is going on. [Read More]

Fast translation from a communiqué written in french:
https://squat.net/fr/news/pays-bas031109.html

Banner and fire, in solidarity with the squats

During the night of november 1st to november 2nd, party of the dead, we did awake !
We’ve put a banner on the wall of an ex-squat, on Phalanstère street, in Grenoble city-center. This building is empty for years, its owner is Actis, who is “managing” business with “social housing” and so on (owning a lot of empty spaces). This building has been squatted in 2005-2006 (Parad is Yack) and in 2007 (La Poulie / Parad is Back).
Everytime, it has been evicted by the Justice & Police crew… The second floor has been burnt a few weeks after the last eviction, to impeach the squatters to come back. The building is still empty.
