Support the Firefund call from the Prosfygika Squat [Athens, Greece]

We address this call to collectives and individuals around the world – in the framework of the solidarity campaign for our project – to participate in our efforts with all means at their disposal!

The building complex of Prosfygika was built in 1933 in order to house the refugees of Minor Asia. Due to these conditions, an alive working class neighborhood with communal characteristics arose. The antifascist partisans of 1944 used Prosfygika as a shelter against the British and Greek state-armies, the gunshots are still visible on the facades of the buildings while the monument of the guerillas located in the forefront of the neighborhood is reminding it to us everyday. Today, Prosfygika is one of the biggest building complexes in the center of Athens which is still not gentrified and exploited by the big funds or the state. It’s a place with a strategical significance because is located in-between the two ‘pillars’ of authority – the Supreme Court on one hand and the Police Headquarters on the other hand.
