Berlin: The Liebig34 is a self-organized, anarcha-queer-feminist house project in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The house was occupied in 1990 and later legalized. This contract expires in December 2018 and and we are not being given an extension: the owner, Gijora Padovicz, wants to clear the house, renovate it and rent it out again for maximum profit. Padovicz is known in Berlin for systematically buying up, clearing and destroying houses and residential projects.

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.
We cannot and will not allow another house to be taken from us. In times of progressive capitalist exploitation of living spaces, a practice needs to oppose this logic. In times of AfD, CDU/CSU and Pegida such feminist spaces and organization are needed to counter the noticeable shift to the right in society. Places are needed where people with diverse backgrounds and gender identities can live collectively and without cis-men -irrespective of their origin, social class, financial means or residence status. Places where power structures and privileges are reflected upon are needed to make them surmountable. Everyday organization which instead of relying on state structures makes them superfluous and attacks them are needed now more than ever.
We are standing in the way of neighborhood development and will not make room for luxury buildings. We need places of feminist self-organization and political resistance. We will fight for the Liebig34!
Come to the demo on 29.09.2018 at 6pm and show that the Liebig34 concerns us all!
Keep resisting to patriarchy, gentrification, the state and capitalism!
Fight for Liebig34!

We express our solidarity with many other projects currently under acute threat. Your fight for freedom and self-determination is our fight! Across Germany, more than 25 projects are in inmminent danger of eviction. These are in Berlin the bar collective Meuterei, das SJZ Drugstore, Potse, Rigaer 94 and more. In addition, the future of the Hambach Forest, the Black Triangle and Rhizomia wagenplatz in Leipzig, the Hasi in Halle, the AZ Köln, the Havanna Acht in Marburg, the Mainusch house in Mainz and (unfortunately) many more is uncertain. More information about these and more projects can be found here:
In addition, the dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan will visit Berlin on 28 and 29 September. We call upon you to take our protest against him and his fascist policies out on the streets, as well as our protest against the policies of the German Federal Government.
Saturday 29.09. | 12:00 Uhr | Neptunbrunnen | Alexanderplatz | Berlin |
Our mission for the 29th of September (and every other day) is: To chase away Erdoğan and to defend Liebig34!
