On the 1st of February the appeal of the 10 people who resisted against the eviction of De Vloek. The city of The Hague (Netherlands) tries to impose a fine of 50,000 Euro against the 10, earlier the 10 were convicted to pay 33,000 Euro. The court case will start at 09:30am at the court in The Hague.
On the February the 9th, 2015 the free space De Vloek was evicted. De Vloek was squatted for 13 years and offeredpeople a place to live, a vegan and organic eat café, a space for concerts, several working spaces and the development of extraparliamentary politics. After a one and a half year campaign to save De Vloek the free space was evicted for a sailing center.
During the eviction 10 people were arrested. All arrestees were prosecuted, five of them were imprisoned for 2 weeks. The city of The hague now also demands 50,000 Euro “damages” from the 10 in a civil court case.
The claim for damages by city authorities is a repressive way to punish the 10 people double who resisted against the eviction. This absurd claim musst be off the table!
Come to the court case and support De Vloek 10!
