|Berlin Squats Evicted|
The Friedrichshain district was under virtual martial law following the evictions with cops on every corner. A few small road blockades were organized in protest during the afternoon. In the evening, around 300 people marched from Frankfurter Tor to the Pfarrstrasse. There, the cops provoked people and several people were arrested during clashes. During the night, two other empty houses in the city were squatted. One house in the Kreuzigerstrasse was occupied, but immediately evicted by a riot police water cannon. Rocks and mollies were tossed at the cops during this clash. And the Kastanienallee 71 was briefly re-squatted, but this house was also quickly evicted.
The three houses evicted on July 29th were just about the last ones left in Berlin. Those that are left you can count on one hand. It's about time we started to change this, otherwise squats are gonna become part of history. People need to stop hiding in their shadows and complaining about how there are no new perspectives. There won't be any unless we make them ourselves!
