Ljubljana. Slovenia. A video from the demonstration on January 22, 2021, against the eviction of Autonomous Factory ROG and a transnational call for donations and support.
Originally published by Komunal.
On Tuesday, January 19, 2021 the Autonomous factory Rog (AT Rog) vas viciously attacked and subsequently destroyed by joint forces of neo-nazi linked private security companies and the police. Attack was orchestrated by the Municipality of Ljubljana. Without any warning and without any legal basis. Houses were demolished or seriously damaged, a lot of equipment, tools and personal belongings stolen.
Established in 2006, AT Rog was a social, cultural and political space which quickly became one of the major nodes of direct social work, migrant solidarity networks, grass-root political research and action. Together with many other practices it addressed the needs of the people of Ljubljana. Ljubljana created AT Rog because there was a need for it. Its authentic bond with the residents of Ljubljana is reflected in an enormous out-pour of support from many individuals, informal initiatives, academic institutions and many others. As well as in many donations received and other support offered.
During the violent eviction and the subsequent protests in which thousand people defied the ban on all public gatherings due to pandemic, many people were arrested, given fines and some criminal cases were opened. We expect that costs of fines will only increase as the state continues its repression and the costs of legal cases mount. All these will be an additional burden for the community of AT Rog that also needs to deal with an immediate issues of housing, stolen equipment and necessary political fightback.
WE CALL ON THE ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN MOVEMENT AROUND THE WORLD TO SUPPORT US IN THIS MOMENT OF NEED AND URGENCY BY ANY MEANS AVAILABLE.
WE CALL SPECIFICALLY FOR DONATIONS IN ORDER TO SUPPORT INDIVIDUALS, CAUGHT IN THE WEB OF STATE REPRESSION. EVERY CONTRIBUTION COUNTS!
