Solidarity demo with Ungdomshuset
On Wednesday, 20th of september, a short solidarity demo was held for Ungdomshuset, a 24 year old social centre in copenhagen which was secretly sold by the government to a right wing christian sect called faderhuset... meeting at the grafton street entrance to stephens green proceeded to the danish embassy which is very close by...
short message from the people defending the building at the moment:
The court has spoken and the verdict turned out in favor of Faderhuset. This means that they will try to shut down Ungdomshuset and establish their rightwing Christian fundamentalist group in OUR house. We do not acknowledge their so-called justice system! There will never be anything but Ungdomshuset in that house and therefore we will do anything in our power to defend it!
On the 23rd + 24th we hit the streets to show them that we are many, that we are powerful and that we will NOT be ignored!
It is no longer a matter of IF we are going to fight for the house, but rather WHEN! But WE decide when it's time to fight - therefore the demonstrations will be non-confrontative.
Copenhagen is not the only city under attack! Houses all over Europe are currently being evicted or “normalized”!
A brief account of the Saturday the 23rd March :
On the 23rd of September a march of over 3000 people took place in Copenhagen leaving from outisde Ungdomshuset and marching through the streets and passed city hall where the crowd stoped to stick their fingers up at the beaurcrats who sold the social centre . The march was filled with kids , bikes , dogs , old people , punks and anarchists just to name a few showing the diversity of people who support this social centre . There shall be a video to follow showing this event .
A chant of "Evict our house and start a war" was heard ....
