#Berlin: Defend #Friedel54 – Eviction Alert June 29
After months of threats, the eviction date for the Friedel 54 community space in Neukoelln has officially been set. On the 29th of June a Bailiff will violently enforce the new property-rights claim of the Pinehill S.à.r.l. . We expect heavy police presence on the day of the eviction.
Submitted to Enough is Enough
Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
Over the last years an ever-increasing number of community spaces are being threatened with/met with displacement and repression. Through vacation rentals, luxury renovations that cause our rents to sky-rocket, and the so-called pacification of the city, we are losing more and more of our foundation and air to breathe.
The eviction of the Friedel 54 is yet another demonstration of power by a city government desperate to flex it’s muscles and hurry along development in the most profitable direction.
We as the Meuterei define ourselves as more than a commercial bar. We are a community space with a clear political mission statement, a space for polictical encounters and exchanges. Therefore it is self-evident for us that we stand in solidarity with the Friedel 54, and all other threatened projects and spaces.
We will be closed on the evening before the eviction, and call other bars to do the same. For neighborhood solidarity! We refuse to be “smoked out”!

Moved by the momentum of rail blockades and actions across the country, we set out last night to stop some trains.

When Jean Baudrillard announced that the year 2000 would not take place, one had to suspect evil.

Ein neuer Anlauf. Unermüdlich. Demo, Blockade, Riot, Streik. Tränengas, Gummigeschosse und Offensivgranaten. Tausende von Gerichtsverfahren, Hunderte im Knast. Wenn diese Zivilisation in den letzten Zügen liegt, werden sich alle an diese Tage, Wochen, Monate erinnern. Egal wie die ganze Angelegenheit ausgeht. Black Rock oder wir. Dazwischen gibt es nichts. Die Gesetze des Kapitals oder eine […]
Am 10. Februar haben jugendliche Aktivisten die Zentrale von Black Rock in Paris unter dem wunderbaren Motto "Avenir En Feu" ("Brennende Zukunft") besetzt.

Black Rock […]
Die Missachtung eines Beschlusses des irakischen Parlaments zum Rückzug aller ausländischen Truppen ist ein Exempel zur Realität der vielstrapazierten "westlichen Werte" Es gehört eigentlich zu den Essentials der vielstrapazierten "westlichen Werte", dass Regierungen, die Beschlüsse des Parlaments missachten, als undemokratisch gelten und zur Ordnung gerufen werden müssen. Zumindest, wenn sie wie in Venezuela als politisch […]
A surprise generated among the participants the complete closure of the perimeter of the “wall” that protects the church and the police monument at Dignity Square.

How we respond depends a great deal on how we frame the problem. First, we need to change the way we understand natural processes. Nature is in a state of constant flux —always looking for new ways to use more energy and dissipate it faster. If we want to survive as a species, our best […]
Planning and Anarchy Central planning?! Computers can do it!!! Among the intuitions animating the contemporary left, we must rank rather high the felt sense that powerful new computing technologies now offer a solution to problems of calculation previously insuperable for the red-eyed central planners of “actually existing” socialist states.

Since the turn to more cutthroat free-market policies in the 1980s, American capitalism has systematically underdeveloped rural and small-town regions of the United States. The 2008 crash poured gasoline on the fire. Mutual savings banks and credit unions, cooperatives, mom-and-pop businesses, local industries and newspapers, health and elder care facilities, schools, and libraries have all […]
