Berlin: Cops evicted Teppich Fabrik Squat

About 200 riot cops and a SEK squad evicted the squatted old Teppich Fabrik in Berlin earlier today.

After the squatters of the old Teppich Fabrik (carpet factory) had to live under siege for weeks, the building was evicted by 200 riot cops and a SEK squad earlier today. Last Friday there was a solidarity gathering in front of the building, but once again the state ordered their lackeys to pave the way for another gentrification project in Berlin’s Friedrichshain district.

As the cops didn’t allow most people to enter the building in the past weeks, there was only a very small group of people left in the building. According to media reports, the cops stated that they didn’t find anybody in the building during the eviction. But that doesn’t necessarily mean there will be no resistance.
