On Wednesday, 9 of March 2022, police raided the Bublina squat in Prague and conducted a search. Four people, one dog and one cat were in the building and surrounding area at the time. The armed police unit broke down several doors but caused no injuries and no one was charged. The court-approved search warrant was built on the suspicion that one person present had committed violence against a public authority and also damage to property. The raid was said to be intended to help secure evidence of these offences. During the search, which lasted several hours, computers, mobile phones, documents, a gas pistol and spray paint were seized. Then the police left and left the squat unsecured. It was later reoccupied.Continue reading Police raided the Bublina squat in Prague [Czech Republic]

The Bubble (Bublina in Czech) is a squat, located on the planet Earth, somewhere on the road between the cities of Aš and Břeclav. These buildings with a yard have been unused by the owner and inhabited by many different people with many various motivations over the years. Some of them left, others have been expelled by the police. Since August 2019, the squat has been occupied by first member of a newly emerging group of residents and supporters, and has been re-named to “Bublina” (The Bubble).
Originally published by Squat Bublina.
This first resident has been dealing with housing crisis and lack of space to thrive for quite some time. After a few months, two more people joined who has been on streets since their employer deprived them of finantial resources. They moved right before outbreak of covid- 19 pandemic, which allowed them to self- isolate in quarantine here and surive without health risks. Both of them are elderly, so their health could have been compromised otherwise. These elderly men and middle-aged anarchist soon became accustomed to living together. It is not ideology nor generational struggle which made them cooperate, but their willingness to solve their material conditions and fullfull their other needs by squatting. Their situation is quite different to those, often coming from middle-class, who squat for idealistic reasons and squatting is just another adventure for them. Residents of the Bubble simple do not have resources to buy or rent flats and squatting is the only way out. A solution beyond the legal and mainstream norms, nevertheless legitimate and effective. If it weren´t for activies of these residents, there would only be wreck of a building on the spot now, with owner who would not take care of it. Squatters take good care of this house and yard. It is their home now, afterall.
The Bubble is also open for short- term stays of non- pernament residents. At the time of pandemic, a person with mental health issues found a calm spot to heal here. He lived through great personal crisis and gained energy for upcoming important life steps. The Bubble also hosts travellers who cannot afford to pay for accomodation, or simply want to spend their money in more meaningful ways.
The Bubble operates on non- commercial basis. Food, water and other resources are free of charge here. Everyone can take what they need, and contribute what they can. We hope that Bubble could host social events in the future. If you would like to throw one, contact us.

Fines and expenses
You may have already heard that a judge decreased the executor’s fee to “mere” 900 000 CZK (yes, nine hundred thousand, approx 36 000 EUR), which, thanks to your overwhelming solidarity, appears to have been mostly collected. However, this unfortunately is not the end to the repression and related expenses. We still need money to pay our lawyers because we are appealing the “executor’s fee” to the Constitutional Court.
