All day / sunday, activists took part in workshops preparing for BlokR on April 3rd. Workshops included gasmask training, blockade training, talks about the tactical situation and a big cross-block building session. Also a lot of the gear which will be used in the action was demonstrated and teams for shield carriers, cube pushers and more started assembling.

It looked very much like everything is coming together for the blocks and all the gear looked very impressive and the activists were very enthusiastic. Soon a big final meeting will be held, where it is hoped as many as possible of the activists planing to do the action will come to talk, train and form affinity groups.

A brief discussion also mentioned the new situation after the potential house in the north west quarter was dropped. The general feeling is, that however and whatever the politicians on the city council do, it remains their responsibility and we’ve waited more than long enough. There is no more room for bureaucracy and citizen’s hearings. We demand a new house before april 3rd or the hammer falls!
