Hamburg: new trailerpark “Zomia” squatted and tollerated

19.12.2010 On 20th november 2010, people squatted a free space in Wilhelmsburg (Hamburg) with six trailers, campers and mobile homes in order to enforce a new trailerpark in Hamburg.

After only a few hours the group had to leave the place to avoid an eviction through the police and moved to a temporary stay at a befriended project in order to start negotiations with the city.

After two involuntary relocations, many fruitless negotiations, several demonstrations, one trailer ralley and city actions, Zomia once more squatted a beautiful piece of land at the Ernst-August-Kanal, where they still are.

Following busy eviction preparations from the citycouncil and a declaration by the group saying they will not leave the place by any means, Zomia now has been told to be tollerated at the premisses till the end of april 2011.

Hamburg has a new trailerpark!

There hasn`t been any trailerpark-squatting in Hamburg since the violent eviction of the Bambule in 2002.
10 of the former 15 trailerparks have been evicted and for several years a new squatting-attempt seemed unwinnable.
Zomia proved the opposite.

For more trailerparks and squats everywhere!

Grenoble (France): The 56’s trial has been put off

Translated from french:

On wednesday december 15th, 2010, the 56’s squat, in Grenoble (56 rue Docteur Hermite), was supposed to go to the tribunal for an eviction trial:

The “socialist” Grenoble’s city-council, owner of the building, doesn’t like the idea of people self-organizing oustide from its control, leaving them doing debates, free shop, free launderette, karate and self-defence lessons, public meetings, infoshop, etc.
The city-council wants the police to evict the squat as soon as possible…

Because of the lawyers strike, all the trials of december 15th were put off to the end of the month or even later.

Le 56’s trial has been put off to next january 19th !
