Liebig34 has a 30 year long and eventful history which is now, 10 years after the Padovicz Group bought the house, is in danger of coming to an end. The handling of hhttps://enoughisenough14.org/2020/06/28/restructuring-the-enough-info-cafe-the-struggle-continues/ousing as a commodity of the capitalist system, has forced evictions, displacement and has become a bitter reality for thousends of people. With a total of over 200 houses only in Friedrichshain, Padovisz company is responsible for eviction, displacement and homelessness and has been very active in solely developing properties for the city of rich.

For us, the value and significance of the house cannot be measured by dirty capitalist figures. Nor can the meaning of the house be replaced by money and power. We see the struggle for the Liebig34 not only as a struggle for the house, and with that as a living space, but also as one for queer-feminist resistance in Berlin and beyond.
Living in patriarchal social order with heteronormative values lead to the oppression and exclusion of people because of their gender identity or sexual desires. The freedom of self-determination of those people get, on a daily basis, threatened and affected not only by structural but also by physical, psychological and economic violence.

The Liebig34 is one of the few remaining autonomous anarcha-queer-feminist houses in Europe.
It organises itself as a house without cis-man [1] and which people from different places, contexts and with different (a)-gender identities collectively live together. They create the space according to their inidividual needs and try to live an anti-patriarchal practice in which conscious space is created for people to define themselves and live out their identity. It is a place where social and kapitalist power structers are questiones and opposed, where queer-feminist resistance and queer-feminist political struggles become visible. Espacially in the last years the Liebig34 has encouraged an autonomous and militant queer-feminist fight, which many people feel addressed and empowered by.

As non-cis-men residents of Rigaer94 we also feel empowered and inspired by our fighting neighbours in Liebig34. We too are fighting against hetero-patriachal and capitalist structures and for Liebig34. The house enriches the neighborhood as a place of social and political struggles, with the küfa and the provision of food donations as well as solidarity with people who are not cis men and need a safe space. It is one of the few space in Friedrichshain which is focused around organizing without cis-men.

Within the radical movement of an anti-capitalist queer-feminist consciousness that focuses on self-dtermination and self-defence, the Liebig34 takes a vital place. Lets fight together for Liebig34!
No matter who threatens the house, it will conitnue to take this place.
Liebig34? Can‘t touch this!

Let‘s get active, creative and bring our rage to the streest with decentralized actions.
On Day X, the Interkiezionale calls for a powerful sponti at 9 pm.

FIGHT LIKE LIEBIG34!
