Berlin, 10th july 2020
Solidarity means attack – no eviction remains without response
Today (10/7/2020), as a first response to the raid and evictions in the front building of Rigaer94, we attacked a branch of the Berliner Sparkasse in Lichtenberg with stones and destroyed the windows.
The raid and eviction are the beginning of the planned elimination of various projects in the coming months. In addition to an attack on one of our spaces, yesterday’s raid concerned the extension of the siege in the northern district of Friedrichshshain and the attempt to prepare the framework for the eviction of Liebig34. This will not remain without consequences. With our action we call for decentralized actions against their plans. We do not want to wait for Day X, the phase of evictions has already begun and we must give a strong, collective response on the streets.
In doing so, we are joining the call of the Koukaki Squats in Athens in order to enter into dialogue with the comrades there who are facing similar challenges. The evacuation of Dervenion56 in Exarchia was the occasion for this international call .
In Greece, since last summer, there has been a general attack on solidarity structures and occupations. In the 12 months of the ND’s reign, more than a dozen occupied houses have already been cleared and barricaded. The right-wing government of New Democracy sees the anarchist movement and its free spaces as its harshest and most dangerous critic.
What is happening in Athens and other Greek cities is an attack on anarchist and autonomous structures, which is taking place in Berlin under different conditions and circumstances, with the threat of eviction of house projects, the suppression of autonomous bars and the siege of the resisting Norkiez in Friedrichshain. The anarchist perspective in the neighborhood struggle also requires international exchange about the methods of our enemies. In societies which generate exploitation and repression and against the servants of capital, we show boundless solidarity with those who choose conflict, creating thereby collective moments.
For self-organization and the occupation of space
Solidarity with Dervenion56, Liebig34 and Rigaer94
