#Meuterei, #Berlin: Solidary greetings and first thoughts on the #Liebig34 eviction

Berlin. Statement by the Meuterei (In English “Mutiny”) on the eviction of Liebig 34. The Meuterei is also in imidiate danger of eviction.

Originally published by Indymedia DE.

On Friday the 09.10. the anarcha-queer-feminist house project Liebig34 was evicted. This means that another piece of city history is perishing in favor of the real estate industry. While some people are admiring how great they did it, others wonder whether this was really the right thing to do during a pandemic (see Tagesspiegel survey). The motto is: “Do it first and then consider whether it is right”. But then there is always the argument about how much violence came from Liebig and that why everything is justified anyway….

We of the Meuterei Collective send sad but especially angry and solidary greetings to the Liebig34. We don’t even want to imagine what the consequences of the eviction will be. To see what it will mean for the Nordkiez, it is enough to look at places like Prenzlauer Berg. The way the eviction went was to be expected at the latest after the Syndikat eviction. The neighborhood was systematically sealed off in advance to prevent people from reaching the house. The bailiff ordered the residents to leave the house on Friday morning around 7am, otherwise he would request administrative assistance from the police. So the question is, what did the police do before that? It is not as if they hadn’t been there almost 24 hours earlier?

For us the question also arises how to deal with the next evictions. Both the Potse and the Meuterei have an eviction title. There are no dates yet, but as we have seen with the L34, that can change quickly. We wonder if the strategy of “blockades” around the eviction is reasonable or rather paralyzing.

The demo in the evening was loud, powerful and dynamic. And those who are surprised that such “riots” have taken place have probably not understood anything yet. This is exactly what they have to expect after every eviction. We were very pleased with the various soli actions in Berlin and other German and European cities. We think it is important that we unite our struggles beyond city and country borders. Therefore we also join the call of the Interkiezionale to come to Berlin on 31.10. for the “United we Fight” demo. There we can find a further expression of what the (upcoming) evacuations will trigger in us.

We send our solidarity greetings to all injured demonstrators and all those arrested. We will continue to resist! Let us make every eviction a disaster!

One struggle, one fight!
