Evaluation: Day X, Red Zones, open assemblies [Köpi, Berlin]

Berlin. On Friday the 15th of October was the eviction date for one of the last projects of a list of endangered spaces in Berlin, which gave a home to tens of people, the Køpi-Wagenplatz. This eviction was part of a series of attacks from the so-called „left“ Senate of Berlin against the remains of the squatting wave earlier in the ’80-’90.
As already done during the last evictions of the different projects in the past year, the police wanted to establish a „red zone“ around Køpiplatz to prevent supporters coming from the exterior to get too close to the area as the eviction would be executed. The approximate perimeter and date of the establishment of the „red zone“ got published only a week before the 10/15, through signs in the streets announcing an interdiction to park, which made it a bit more difficult to plan to counter it. Because the idea was, as tried and partially succeeded, in previous attacks of Berlin’s Senate against autonomous spaces, to disturb the installation of the red zone. With this goal in mind, an open assembly was called and a heterogeneous and rather large group of people met regularly in the weeks before, to organise a political strategy and support the fight around Køpiplatz and against the red zone. We are some of the people who were part of this group, some of us didn’t know each other before and we write this text after the first round of evaluation has taken place.

Gorillas demo update and self-criticism [Berlin]

Berlin. On Tuesday the 16th of November a demo in solidarity with the gorillas riders took place. Starting from the warehouse of Muskauer str.48 at 18.00 the demo marched until Hermannplatz. Around 600 people demonstrated, shouted slogans, spread flyers and made clear that Gorillas workers are not alone. As Interkiezionale we also participated and called for the demo since we recognize the struggle of Gorillas as a try to resist and fight back the city of the rich. We participated in posterings and flyerings, we mobilized and tried to be more activily involved in this struggle. We believe that the connection of urban struggles should be our priority in order to compose an intersectional resistance.
