Vienna (Austria): Have you ever squatted the heart of the beast?

July 10th, 2011

In the past couple of days, a group of people in Vienna, fed up of the increasing daily repression of life and the lack of free social space, have taken over an abandoned building in the Ottakring part of the city.
Ottrakring is ground zero of Real Estate speculation in Vienna. The people are also fed up of rising rents and abusive landlords in Vienna. We are also fed up with how the city government not only unconditionally supports the landlords but also how the city is doing less and less to help tenants and other social layers who find life in Vienna more and more unbearable. We’re comprised of Austrians, immigrants, women, men, youth, middle aged, students, workers and unemployed. We are artists, intellectuals, and free thinkers. We represent a true microcosm of Vienna and Austria.

Notre-Dame-des-Landes / Nantes (France): A land occupation to make an autonomous village

The ZAD, July 9, 2011,

We are a hundred, we just occupied the land in order to make a autonomous village, to overcome the fight against G8 we gathered together to start to build up a concrete moment of alternatives and struggles.

It’s been a while that we think about the idea to change the way of protest against G8 summits, against pressure, the expected appointment, police traps and event hopping.
By preparing this long term “Camp” which we want to call village, here on La ZAD (Zone to defend) we want to expand this mobilization, take our time for reflection and exchange, linking the global and local struggle…. Our rage is intact: our energy too! [Read More]

July 8th, 2011

A lot of energy right now !

If there are not much news from our side actually, it means that we are up to running after material instead of computers…

Things take shape, apart a mix of problems which always appear last minute, there are much more nice “last minute” surprises, the pleasure of being more and more numerous every day since our arrival here on La ZAD (“Lasad”) and the amazing shelter from our friends from the squat l’InterMinables and our neighbours on “Lasad”.

Final preparations are underway, the land will be invested this Saturday the 9 July, the more we will be the better it is ! [Read More]
