Athens (Greece): Failed trespass attempt against Pikrodáfni free space!

Announcement by the Pikrodáfni free space in Athens, Greece:

While lately our free space is under constant surveillance by undercover cops, a few nights ago two persons approached Pikrodáfni free space and tried to trespass, but their plan failed as we noticed them almost immediately.

We consider this strange visit part of the general climate of repression that has been developed as the main government political line against the anti-authoritarian movement and the self-managed free spaces or squats in Greece, and is based on the open and shameless cooperation between cops and fascists.

Prague: Sept09 – Trials and solidarity

This Monday 14th September 2009, the first few squatters, detained during the Saturday action in Apolinářská Street, were taken over to court.

The first trial had to start at 3 PM. At that time, some fifty people gathered in front of the building or even inside, in front of the courtroom, to show their solidarity with charged people. The sole judge only allowed journalists who possessed a press pass to enter the room. But this weird decision was stridently refused by the comrades of accused squatters and as the judge couldn’t find an answer why people with a certain card should be favoured, he excluded all public from the trial.

Tha support and encouragement was then only showed by presence in front of the court or in the hall. It’s important to point out that this really was an encouragement and all the charged (and later released) people found our presence to be a big relief and help, important after all those hours they had spent isolated in a cell. We could even see their tired faces, that just brightened up after they saw their comrades’ gathering, even if they knew that the trial would take place in few minutes.

CALL OUT for help with South London’s Library House Social Centre

On the 17th September 2009 it will be a year that the Library House in Camberwell has been open as one of the few squatted social spaces in south london and we’d like to mark it with a call out for new faces, new ideas and new energy! The Library House holds regular weekly events and also hosts parties, gigs and benefits and we need help to run all of these. Our collective meets on tuesdays at 8pm where we discuss everything about the running of the social centre and it’s a good place to start for anyone who wants to come down to get involved.

Although we’ve had a good run of it we’re never sure of how long we’ll actually have here, some come down while you can. It would also be great if there were a crew ready to run another social centre when this project passes on, and the Library House would be a great place to meet likeminded people interested in running a social centre, something south london is sorely lacking in…

Check out our blog just pop down. We’re at 52 Knatchbull Road, behind Minet Library. Tuesdays at 8pm are best, or just come round and say hi when you can.

Hope to see you soon…


Prague: Another report from 12th Sept 09

im sending you some pictures and videos from first day of action, and brief description of what has happend.

we gathered at one square at prague, than, after an hour of some program, we went to a march thru city to pretend we gonna squat one house on our way. In meantime another group silently squatted house nearby and gave us echo. After echo, we came to this house, and started to support insiders. Some more people passed to house (now there were like 25 people with one guy from press), than the police attacked us, and pushed us from the house.. they wanted to keep distance between us an house. After two hours of negotiation with really high placed police officers, some woman from owner with whatewer stamp she needed told that they dont want us in the house. After another hour they provocativly arrested two of our friends, so there were ome actions against it. Than without any delay, cops started to throw teargas on the street, and theese explosives (like multiple bang) and started to tear us apart and they arrested more people (5 more) There were some wunded people. We regrupped at a square, and decided to go, and try to support our commarades in the house. All area was cutted off, so we came from back of the house, where they had the poorest defence. We builded some barricades, and splitit into two groups (one was like 20 people and the other was like 40. First group was supposed to defend the barricade and second to attack the cops. But we were quite surprised by arrival of two police vans with aproximetly 20 riotcops, and gave echo to people in the street, but only half of our “barricade group” escaped, and both the other half and all of the people attacking the cops were arrested.

Riot cops got into house aroun 5 in morning, they used whatewer they had, even military wehicle rebuilt to riot barricade. And after an hour of cutting thru barricades in the house they arrested all of the squtters in the house and on the roof.

So we have 100 arrested (most of them are allready out with only disobeing of police orders) and another 25 (press guy incl.) has crime of using property… In monday, theres gonna be fast courtcase.

We are asking u for whatewer support u can possibly provide.

In this actionweek, we gonna squat another house.

Prague: A report from the yesterday action

Public squatting action took place in Prague yesterday. This is just a small info after returning from the streets.

Around 300 people gathered in publicly announced assembly point at 14:00. After an hour and a half they went to march to abandoned building, that was a subject of corporate media speculation about the target of the squatting action. But that was just a smokescreen for a police – meanwhile a group of 20 people occupied empty house nearby, right next the police station.

When the red and black flag was raised at the house, people run to the house. After a short party in front of the house when several people from demo enter the house by the rope, police attacked the demo, trying to arrest a masked guy (masking is illegal). He was de-arrested twice in peaceful way (by passive resistance), but finally arrested.

In the evening, many people (probably around 70 persons) who were supporting the squat in the streets, were detained. Police used an extremely violent force and several different tactics and weapons. There are unverified informations about some injured protesters, but no serious injuries were reported.

It was also announced, that the squatters might reach a penalty of up to two years imprisonment.

Squatters occuping a house in Prague, district no. 2

At this moment (from around 16 o’clock, 12th September 2009), a house on the corner of Apolinarska and Na Slupi Streets is being occupied. This house has been chosen for several reasons: it’s empty since many years, neglected and left to disrepair. Even the smallest reparation works has not been done and the roof is then broken with water coming in. On the other hand, door and windows are very well walled up, so that nobody can live in here.

According to an auction report, this house would be “an ideal place to build luxury appartments and commercial spaces”, that means another victory of profit and not the one of real needs of inhabitants of the city, who can see emerging luxury houses, but no affordable housing, like if the need for it would not even exist. This particular house is constantly secured against all those, who don’t have a place to stay, because it’s there to serve to the rich and for the commercial purpose, which is a process happening in the whole center of Prague. And it is becoming a display window, deprived of any sign of everyday life of those, who can’t afford the expensive housing and who don’t go shopping in posh stores.
