Athens. Greece. On the 20th of July 2021, during a public and open movie screening on the rooftop of squat Zizania, we saw the police on the street below carrying out another of their racist and discriminatory checks on drug users in Fylis. When we confronted them with slogans from the rooftop, they started harassing by pointing flashlights and shouting at us. Some comrades spontaneously threw one empty bottle and a stone which landed on the street. This action came from people whose anger boiled over from the daily racist violence they see and experience from the Greek police; people who can no longer watch passively while another person is harassed because the police considers them a lesser human.Continue reading Athens: A response to police harassment in Viktoria and their lies about the incident on 20/07/2021
Berlin. Almost a month ago our movement* decided to overcome defensive strategies and strengthen our offensiveness. As a result of prolonged discussions, and it should be noted that these discussions only lead to results with sustained organizing, structures began to implement a new strategy against evictions and focussed on the destruction of the “red zone” and established their own zone in the Nordkiez. A zone, based this time on self-organization and solidarity. They managed to “deconstruct” the passifying “red-zone” and created collective moments and experiences.Continue reading Analysis of June 16 and 17: Solidarity with Rigaer94! [Interkiezionale, Berlin]

Netherlands. The Dutch government recently passed a new law, Wet Handhaving Kraakverbod (or law to Enforce the Squatting Ban), with the aim of evicting squatters more quickly. There is a lot of confusion and uncertainty about what exactly this law will entail and especially what influence this will have on squatters and their housing rights.Continue reading Netherlands: New Squatting Law – Squat Wars IV, Return of the squatting ban

Leipzig. Germany. A week ago, there was supposed to be an angry Day X+1 demo from Leipzig besetzen regarding the eviction of Tiefe 3.
We wanted to let it bang, but there were too many cops and not enough of us. Nevertheless, there were decentralized actions in the evening and it was still possible to build a demo. A bigger Day X demo was prevented by the pigs. However, we do not let ourselves be told when to take the street. Therefore we have called on Saturday evening to a spontaneous demo in the east of Leipzig. Same banner (apparently the cops are blind), same neighborhood, but this time without cops. On the short route, some windows were smashed, including the remnants of Sparkasse and a vacant store space of the owner of Tiefen 3 (Immovaria). We are happy to have sent a clear signal. Our solidarity also goes to the resistant people around Rigaer Street, who successfully defended their house. Your struggle has inspired us and shows that militant defenses are possible.
From Tiefe to Rigaer – we remain ungovernable!
Short criticism of the action at Sparkasse. Next time people must be found to get people out of the branch beforehand. They should not be the target of the attack.
Berlin. Rigaer 94. Thanks to every support that was developed during the last weeks and especially the last two days of preparation and collective fight against our common enemies, we managed to develop the most intensive fighting days that we could have imagined. Days which turned every plan from the state and capital into a catastrophy. A great reminder to ourselves, our collective and its supporters, how important the movement’s networks, infrastructures of solidarity and self-organisation are.Continue reading Berlin: Rigaer lives – an address to our friends and comrades
