The squat Klizma is at the same house, where at Autumn 2003
was located the squat Pekarnia. From December 2003 the
squatters has continuously renovated the building and hold there
the weekly meetings of Punk Revival. Through the winter almost
each Saturday there took place a concert with local and foreign
bands. Also sometimes there was organized a little
non-profit-bar. Last 3 months there are permanently living about
5 persons and all the time some quests.
The squat Klizma is famous as the place for activities and
hanging around for the anarchist antifascist punk movement
"Punk Revival", who have been actively fighting against fascism
at St Petersburg the last 1,5 years and made a huge effect to the
rise of the anarchist antifascist community (to speak about
movement is yet too loud) in St Petersburg.

At 4th of July at the night the squat Klizma was attacked by an
union of cops and gopniks (which means a human with special
type of mind; aggressive men, who like to show others who is
who. They are very common particularly at Russian country
side). After the attackers smashed the last barricades and enter
the squat, they started to beat up people, who where defending
the squat from inside. Two of the squatters where heavily beaten
up with baseball bites and collars. One gopnik was sent to

At the same time a few squatters decided to attack the gopniks
and cops from outside and got down from the house by rain
pipes. After that they faced unequal fight and the yard of the
squat. During the next few days about all of the windows of the
squat where broke and reserves of Molotov cocktails are
exhausted in smaller fights. Two squatters have been forced to go
underground after provocation, which actually leaded to this

The squatters used to earn money at one famous street crossing
tunnel, but since 3rd of July they face there serious problems
with the local police patrols, local bandas, gopniks and nazi. Any
kind of material support, like food, medicine, fuel, baseball bites,
materials for building is very welcome!
