[Athens] Opening of Polytechnio

The celebration of Polytechnio (17th of November) is a commemoration of the Athens Polytechnic Uprising that took place in Athens in 1973 against the military dictatorship. Students went on strike and squatted the university for three days, from the 14th to 17th, until the military and cops violently entered the university, killing and injuring several demonstrators.
This year, on the pretext of protection against the pandemic, the Nea Dimokratia government along with the cops and university authorities forbid the commemoration and accompanying demonstration, which are held every year on that day.

Hugs and Kisses for Liebig34

Liebig34 is one of the threatened projects in the city of Berlin. After the expiring of the rental contract in 2018 and the refusal of Gijora Padovicz (1) – one of the largest individual landlords in the city- to renew it, the people of Liebig34 decided to stay in the house without a contract. Since then a multifaceted struggle has developed, aiming to postpone and prevent the eviction of the house, and has become symbolic in the radical movement’s struggle against gentrification,  an issue rapidly increasing in the city in the past decades.

Liebig34: Delivery of judgment on 30.04. make a disaster!

Not only the house, our living space, but our entire way of life in our hard-won free space will be on trial again at the end of the month and are acutely threatened. It is reprehensible on a social, political and human level to do everything possible to kick us out of Liebig34 to make room for people who earn more and live more in conformity with the system. For even more profit for the owner.

Koukaki fell heavy on them

Since 2017, the Koukaki Squat Community (Matrozou 45, Panaitoliou 21, Arvali 3) set up a different competitive example of communal life in the center of Athens. Through horizontal procedures, collective work and persistence, it set up open and social projects of communal housing, public bath and laundry, clothes sharing, spaces for public events and a multilingual library. Operating in an area which has been transforming from residential neighborhood to first-class tourist resort, the Koukaki Squat Community raised an embankment against the repressive and economic policies of the state and the bosses, against fascism, racism, and patriarchy. A living hearth of resistance, it also actively supported and connected with other struggles, political projects and public assemblies [1].
