(en) Poland, Call for Solidarity - DeCentrum squat in Bialystok has been evicted by the city authorities.

Date Tue, 25 Oct 2005 21:41:00 +0200

For those who do not know the squat, it was home and meeting place for
various anarchist groups, FNB and other iniatives. It celebrated its 5th
anniversary last weekend. Among some events that people may have readabout
from the squat was the Girls in Action series, an international ABC meeting,
antiborder events and the last Anarchist Federation Conference.
The owner of DeCentrum was allowing the squatters to stay and from time to
time appeared there. Apparently, he owed the city money (back taxes) and the
city confiscated the building. Once they took possession of the building,
they decided to clear the squatters out.

Today, at about noon time, the only person in the squat was one of our
friends from FA Bialystok. He was beaten and threatened by the police.

Anarchists and squatters from around Poland will be organizing solidarity
actions for DeCentrum and we ask that friends from other cities organize
something at Polish embassies to protest against the municipal authorities
of Bialystok. While you are there, you can protest against other
repressions, our homophobic president, etc..

If you cannot organize anything but would like to show your solidarity, you
can send faxes, e-mails or call city hall.
The first e-mail is to the President of the City of Bialystok.

The address of the squat is ul. Czestochowska 14/2.
