Hannover (Germany): New squat evicted

On Sunday December 6, a freshly squatted building in Hannover was evicted. Twelve people from the group “Sonst besetzen wir” had occupied it during a housing protest of about 800 people. The city then decided to evict and police took the details of those who stayed inside, they might be charged with trespass.

“Sonst besetzen wir” released a statement saying “For more than a year and a half, the houses at Schulenburger Landstrasse 158, which are owned by the city of Hannover, have been largely empty. Despite worthy announcements, the city has not yet renovated them and made them available to homeless people. In view of the corona pandemic and temperatures being at freezing point, urgent action must be taken.” [machine translation]
