Berlin: Tu Mal Wat! VilLA54 squatted

During the Tu-Mal-Wat action days, we squatted the old brewery in Lansberger Allee 54.

Germany: We squatted Mannheim! Friedenstrasse 44 occupied

Two weeks ago humans were chased from their homes in Hambacher Forst.

We have 10 days to bury ANDRA! The management of nuclear waste hasn’t and never will have a solution. It will always be there, whether 500 metres underground here at Bure, like elsewhere.

Amsterdam: Joe’s Garage, Newsletter February 2014

During the last months various squats were opened and closed in Amsterdam and surroundings. Yet, the eviction procedure is becoming easier for the cops.
