Squat “Pekarnia”

Squat “Pekarnia” still exists, but now with a new name “Klizma”

After the eviction of squat “Pekarnia” at 7th of November 2003 the house was empty and quiet for some time. Just after the eviction it seemed very possible that cops would kick out also the homeless people from the second floor and close the house. But after the eviction the cops left the house undisturbed, so the third floor was squatted again.

A few months squatters renovated the house again, built new heating systems etc, but anyway it still is fucking cold there, sometimes even colder that on the street. In spite of the temperature down to -20 degrees, the anarchist antifa-group “Punk Revival” hold their weekly meetings in the squat and other people also hang around there daily.

The place is again free for different anarchist and contra-cultural meetings and happenings. On 28th of January 2004 the first half-unplugged-punk-concert took place at the squat with bands “Wheel of Dharma” (Tampere, Finland), “Ankylym” (SPb, Russia) and “Dynkelhayt” (SPb, Russia). Many folks, around 70 people gathered for the concert. There worked vegan kitchen. There is an idea to open more or less regularly a cafe-bar in the squat in the near future.

>From now on cultural life at the squat seems to be more active, the next concert will take place on 14th of February, and there will be even some sound systems and drums:).
