One Year After the Eviction Attempt [Rigaer 94, Berlin]

Berlin. Soon it will be a years time since the state and its lackeys attempted a large-scale attack, an eviction attempt on our house, the Rigaer 94. The excuse of “Fire Security” served politics as a legitimization to set the neighborhood into an authoritarian state of emergency by erecting a so-called “red zone”, to make an unimpeded entrance of the house possible.

Rigaer94: Never Gonna Give You Up – Solidarity with the accused comrade from the raid on March 9 [Berlin]

Berlin. On the morning of the 09.03.2022 cops raided an apartment in Reichenberger Str. in Kreuzberg as part of an ongoing investigation. They had a search warrant for the residence of a comrade who is accused of participating in violent acts against cops in front of our house on June 16, 2021, which was actually the fight against the eviction under the pretext of fire-security. The charge is „very serious case of breach of the peace“ („besonders schwerer Fall des Landfriedensbruchs“). This investigation and warrant is claimed to be based on video identifications by 2 cops from the LKA 641 (PMS). The cops had a warrant to search particularly for clothes, yellow gloves and electronic storage and communication devices. It seems to be the standard to always confoscate electronic devicesno matter the context, so remember to always encrypt all your media and don’t keep anything unneeded around.  https://de.indymedia.org/node/179053 [link is dead right now, copy on kontrapolis here].

Liberated grounds and the connection with student struggles

Berlin. On 31/12/2021 Biologico squat, a self-organised space for 34 years in the university campus of Thessaloniki, Greece got evicted. As a part of the self-organized, anti-commercial and anti-authoritarian struggle Biologico functioned as a reference point for various fights during the years. In order to defend and support the space and to organize actions, an open assembly was formed. This resulted in a new occupation in the first day of the action week (10.01) and its eviction two days later, with 15 people getting arrested and a greek-wide demonstration with 23 arrests, one of which facing high degree charges.

Rigaer 94: First statement on the raid of 6th of October, 2021 [Berlin]

Berlin. The Berlin cops, today, 06.10.2021 at 7am, wearing their dirty trash-bag uniforms and carrying shields full of color from the resistance on 17th of July and armed, raided our political structure and living space, Rigaer94. Once again, as everyday, the servants of the state fulfill their commands and obey to the capital. The state guarantees the order of the capitalist system, so to squeeze even more profit from people and their living spaces, gain power over every life, destroy any political idea that fights against them and oppress any individual who does not fit to their plans in this capitalistic, patriarchal and racist society. It is clear that the Berlin cops still work with Lafone Investments Ltd. and are their mercenaries, who execute orders of the plan to get rid of Rigaer94 and so to force the gentrification process of Nordkiez, Friedrichshain – after they lost their last attack on us in June this year.

Rigaer 94: Support the demo against danger zones on 12.9 | 05:00pm (17:00) Alexanderplatz [Berlin]

Berlin. Rigaer 94. While gentrification plans are growing in a rapid pace, the state’s contribution to the profit of this capitalist society becomes even more visible. Repressive strategies and security architecture planning are applied and developed in our streets and neighborhoods. Strategies and plans which consist of “danger” and “red” zones, special voluntarily police units and regular patrols, all are based on a broader repressive strategy from state and capital who try to overthrow marginalized and specific political groups and communities of people.

Analysis of June 16 and 17: Solidarity with Rigaer94! [Interkiezionale, Berlin]

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.
