#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”!
