Flensburg: K4 evicted

27th january 2009

Today midday the cops evicted the K4 in a fast move, without any warning. The first supporters arrived about 15 minutes later. The people living in the K4 managed to get away. Supporters got the personal belongings short time after. 5 hours later there was a spontaneous demonstration through the inner city with about 80 people. The cops tried to block the demo from moving to the K4. The demo managed to trick the cops and moved around them. The cops tried to arrest some people later, but they didn’t succeed. It all ended with a speech in front of the K4, where supporters and the people who lived there said to continue the fight. There is more to come, the K4 was just the beginning. Solidarity for the K4! Soli-demo in Hamburg wednesday the 28.01.09 at 19 o’clock at the Rote Flora. The struggle continues!


Flensburg: New Social Center in Germany

Since the beginning of this year an initiative is using the space of the Kurze Straße 4 in Flensburg for an autonomous social and kulture center. The K4 is open for everybody who wants to drop in and chill out, make workshops or help with the building of this freshly squatted house projekt.

since the legal status is not cleared yet, the k4 needs a lot of solidarity to convince the authorities that a space like this is needed.

Concept of the K4:

A space for us, for all Central core of our project will be a housing project in which people from different social backgrounds can live together collectively and work to make their dreams reality. This living space is supposed to be open to everyone, including those who don’t live in the project, and offer a meeting point for young and old alike. We hope that such a meeting point can help to overcome the seperation of people into different social groups, may it be according to income, gender or nationality and make a contribution to mutual understanding. Furthermore the inclusion of the many social and cultural projects we are planning into the same space that is used privately to live there, will guarantuee the personal link of those living in the building to the social goals of the project and thus helps to ensure that the continuous work of the project does not stop even in difficult times. For us who live there, the engagement for the social and cultural goals of the project becomes a personal engagement and the border between private and public initiative is erased consciously.
