Zurich, Switzerland: Occupation of the former Chinese restaurant Witikon

Zurich. Switzerland. We are in the Chinese Year of the Buffalo. The buffalo stands for resistance and a new beginning, on March 26, 2021, the Witikonerstrasse 400 was squatted.

Originally published by Barrikade Info. Translated by Riot Turtle.

We are a group of people who are committed to the use of vacant buildings in order to make them last and revitalize them as long as possible.
We, the squatters, intend to create a place, where there is no pressure to consume and where creative ideas can be implemented autonomously.

The housing shortage in Zurich and the horrendous rental prices make it practically impossible to find affordable living
space. We would like to see a colorful and and lively city, where everyone has a place and we engage ourselves to achieve this.

After years of vacancy, the Witikon neighborhood can once again enjoy a lively place, right at the crossroads in the former Chinese restaurant, or rather the even older
Restaurant zur neuen Post.

We don’t know yet whether the cuisine will be home-style or Asian. We can do both. In any case we demand fortune cookies for all.

Stay healthy,
Cookie family
