Milan: Villa Vegan under eviction threat

In recent days it has come rumor that they want to evict Villa Vegan Tuesday, October 30th.
We believe it is a trust information and we are determined to resist, so let’s make a call to all the people in solidarity reach us to prepare together resistance and mobilization against the eviction. It is welcome anyone who wants to support the place, who has crossed over the years, who has carried on the struggles that here have found complicity, all the comrades who they think that if they want to evict an anarchist space occupied by 20 years must cost him dear.

In all these years of occupation Villa Vegan has hosted comrades from all over the world, has given logistical support to many self-managed projects, especially those from the hardcore punk scene, and a lots of fights, including those of against prison system and in solidarity to prisoners, ecologists and for liberation animal, against racism and CIEs (renamed then CPR), transfeminist queer and against gender violence, antifascist; struggles that refuse relations with institutions and always in opposition to the capitalist system and the state.

With the evacuation of the occupied spaces, the interminable overbuilding, the raids against the migrants, irregular and unwanted people of each type, the urban “redevelopment” of the neighborhoods, the growing militarization and surveillance of the roads, they want to transform the places where we live in the showcase cities useful only to run the economy and in dormitories for those included in the rhythm of production and consumption, closing more and more every possible resistance space. For this reason every eviction does not concern only the specific place that comes attacked but the more general plan of social control by the political and economic power, and must be opposed.

Utrecht: Callout for solidarity with the Swamp

This week the judge decided to make the eviction of the Swamp possible. This means that birds, rabbits, bats, rats, insects and people lose their living space and a young forest will be killed. All to make space for more asphalt, another distribution center and a bus parking that could be built somewhere else.
The judge ignored that the owner, Borghese Real Estate B.V., hasn’t even asked for permits to cut the trees on the part of the Swamp that is not destroyed yet.
We won’t let yet another one of the very few places of green in the city of Utrecht be killed. We won’t move from out self built community where we live together with nature, as self sufficient as possible, and free.
We call out to all people to defend nature here with us, or in your own way, everywhere. We expect the eviction of the Swamp soon after Wednesday the 31st of October, next week.

FUCK PROFIT, FUCK ASPHALT!
THE SWAMP STAYS!

Tagamanent (Catalonia): Suspension of judicial process. The Moli remains!

We have achieved a “temporary” procedural suspension of our judicial process, enabling us to challenge this masquerade of justice. This seems to be the only way to face the complaint of express eviction proposed by the owner, thus giving us time to defend ourselves judicially and demonstrate all the work done during these years.

Even so, we know that we do not have much time and that we have to be attentive to prepare our response with all possible means to stop the eviction. During the next days there will be activities, support meals and actions from home, we hope to continue to face all together.

Thanks to all of you for the support received with calls, messages and visits to the house to participate and help in everything we have needed these days.

THE PROCESS CONTINUES
THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES

Tagamanent (Catalonia): The Moli under eviction threat. The Moli remains!

After 7 years of effort to build the Molí de la Torre de Tagamanent in Catalonia, a parcel that had been abandoned and forgotten for more than 20 years, the state security forces, ordered by those above and without prior notice or option for negotiation, want to evict the house in 10 days, forcing us to abandon the house and the project.

Against urban speculation, the massive requalification of land, express evictions and fucking capitalism, we denounce the usual culprits for generating situations of precariousness, helplessness and social discontent.

WE WILL NOT STOP DEFENDING WHAT WE BELIEVE
WE WON’T STOP STARTING PROJECTS
WE DON’T BELIEVE YOUR STORY
YOU DON’T GIVE US ANY FEAR

Portugal: Stop the eviction of C.O.S.A

On the 13th of October in 2000 a group of young people from Setúbal, Portugal, decided to take in their own hands the control of a part of their lives. They squatted an abandoned house replacing emptiness and apathy with desires, dreams and experiences of freedom, autonomy, self organisation, confrontation and atack.

A communitarian place to live free action and expression, without political parties or state control, without authority, without profit and at last puting anarchism in practice. They named the squat C.O.S.A. (casa okupada de Setùbal autogestionada) and from this moment a new confrontation with power starts spreading through the city. Quickly the critique, denounce and intervention became present in the daily life of Setúbal. Cosa became a social center from where people organized against speculation, tourism resorts, oppression from the state, deaths by the hands of police, political parties, alienation… There were discussions, actions, demos, concerts, political paintings all around, all the experiments that were necessary to break up with the system. Many things happened trough these years but COSA always stood firm and strong. 17 Years passed and neither the police or the courts can erase this chapter in the rebel and unsubmissive history of the city.

Galliners (Catalonia): Kan Bici resists! Week of Resistance against the eviction, 4 till 11 may

Hi comrades and friends! The eviction of Kan Bici is probably taking place on May 10th 2018 and it is assumed that the “forces of order” will do their dirty work in a matter or otherwise. We want to invite you to participate in the activities that we have been able to prepare for the week of resistance (still missing things to confirm). We ask for the maximum diffusion of the posters added to this mail. Apart from the prepared activities is the call for decentralized actions for the day of eviction that leaves “free hand” to all of you to act as a result of their anarchist/revolutionary ideas against the system of domination and his defenders.
Between all we can prevent the eviction of Kan Bici!
Long live the Anarchy!
Kan Bici resists!

Program of the week of the Week of Resistance, from 4 till 11 may https://squ.at/r/4qkj : [Read More]

Greece: Anarchist refugee squats prepare for State onslaught

City_Plaza_AthensA new spate of recent evictions and interventions by the Greek State against refugee solidarity occupations run by the anarchist movement in Athens has prompted callouts for a major emergency gathering this Friday.

The callout and associated international day of action comes in the wake of a series of crackdowns and repression [1][2] against the solidarity movement, which has helped thousands of refugees self-organise to house themselves and defend against far-right violence since the Syrian crisis began.

It has been supported by six major occupied centres and groups, Oniro, City Plaza, 5th School, Notara 26, Underground Railroad, Spirou Trikoupi, Jasmine School and Acharnon School, which have put out a joint statement on the deteriorating situation in the city:

During the last month we witnessed the State escalating its anti-immigration policy of restrictions against refugees and the solidarity movement. In Addition to the EU management of migration issues which include forcing people to live in horrible conditions ,deporting them and denying them their basic human rights, the Greek government is revealing its totalitarian face by demonstrating its repression power through evicting political and housing squats for refugees.

Athens (Greece): Statement of CityPlaza Squat against the threat of eviction

City Plaza will not bend / Resist the “immigration & passport bureaus”, the frightful flags of states and diplomacy war weapons factories

The court order for the evacuation of the Refugee Accommodation Space City Plaza is the latest scene in the repressive management of refugees and the solidarity movement. From the closure of the borders to the shameful EU-Turkey deal, from the prisonlike camps to the evacuation of squats, a policy of casting refugees as a peculiar enemy is being articulated.
