The Liebig34 is not only a symbol of the left scene. The Liebig34 is lived anarcha-feminist, queer resistance. 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.
We write this info-text, not because we are surprised by this state’s tactic, nor because we have any illusions about what democracy, state and repression are.So a few days ago, we discovered a GPS tracking device under one of our cars. The “black box” was found attached with a magnet and activated, at the bottom of the car. We removed it and turned it off by removing the battery.

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 .
