#Bern, Swiss territory: Communiqué on the squatting action at Brunnmattstrasse 46a

Swiss territory: Today, Saturday June 8th, Brunnmattstrasse 46a in Bern was squatted.

In a world

which is characterized by exploitation and oppression,
where everything is determined by money,
where people work their whole lives to make a living,
in companies that make immense profits by oppressing workers,
in which there is an indifference to exploitation and destruction that takes place by these very same companies all over the world,
in which socially constructed notions of norms prevail,
in which it is difficult for people to escape the ambition for social and financial success.

In a city

where police controls are commonplace due to physical characteristics,
in which neighbourhoods are upgraded by profit-oriented companies,
in which expensive apartments, offices and other rooms are created for commercial purposes,
where people with little financial resources are displaced,
where free spaces that rebel against commercialization and control are evicted and fought against,
where colourful autonomous spaces are worth less than company buildings.

In this house

we want to open a space that doesn’t work with the logic of money,
we want to be able to meet to exchange ideas, to read and discuss, to initiate projects, to build and tinker,
we want to organize ourselves in a grassroots democratic way and try to dismantle all hierarchies,
we want to create a space in which we can identify and combat every form of discrimination,
a space is to be created in which there is no compulsion, in which the may and ability take priority over the must,
we want to defend ourselves against possessiveness and property,
we want to reduce dependence on powers such as the state, the economy and companies through autonomous projects.
