(en) Poland, rozbrat.org: All of us do not burn - Review Luke Weber [machine translation]

Date Sun, 4 Dec 2016 13:36:50 +0200


It should be noted that the greatest misfortune is that such a book had to be written. And had to be written, because the murdered Jolanta Brzeska, because so many people have been evicted, deprived of the right to a roof over his head, wyzbytych with dignity, because so often instead of real help in the face of the housing crisis, people have to listen to empty platitudes of politicians and steak nothing unworthy promises. ---- The authors start from what so strongly reflected on themselves and co-written by them lokatorskim traffic. It is March 1, 2011 the last day on which seen alive Jolanta Brzeska. In the book, we learn everything that is known about her last hours of life and the nightmare of death. Her charred body was found the next day in the Bois Kabacki. According to the adopted by the police hypothesis was that ... suicide. In such an absurd proposition hard to believe, so it carefully presents to the reader the same form Jolanta. A woman who was forced by circumstances to fight for your home, for their dignity, the right to be the subject and not an object in a process called.

reprivatisation. Brest was one of many people who have become victims of people dealing with the claims used to purchase, and then the "recovery" of houses. The word "recovery" must be included in quotation marks here because, as very thoroughly explained in the book authors, re-privatization is the process that does not have much in common transferring the rightful owner of the nationalized property. "After 1989, in Poland historical sentimentality even exploded, uncritical glorification of the Second Republic after the years has given effect in the form of consent by the majority of Polish society on a wild reprivatisation treated without thinking in terms of balancing the historical" wrongs ". Return of the former owners and their heirs palaces, houses, land or factories had to restore justice, the eternal law and order. It's just that if someone has a win, another must lose. "

Brzeska was not wiecowym speaker, but stood out for persistence and determination among the organizing tenants involved in the fight against injustice affecting them. He never leaves the next meetings of the tenants participated in street protests and those that took place at the session of the City Council. There are many indications that it was her persistence and determination led someone to come to her life, it is possible that it only wanted to intimidate, but something went wrong, someone nerves gave way and went to extremes. The authors try to present all possible clues and traces related to the tragic death, mainly because of so thorough analysis of different hypotheses forgot the police and the prosecutor's office. Law enforcement agencies were negligence and have adopted a version of the suicide, the least probable, but apparently most comfortable. Currently, there is real hope associated with the decision to resume the investigation into the death of Jolanta Brzeska, time will tell whether it will bring the expected results.

The tragedy of the Warsaw activists of a tenant for authors also a prelude to the more detailed discussion of the fate of other victims, the inhabitants of resource premises of the city. In fact, since the conduct of the authorities of the city, as well as specialists from the "cleaning of houses," it testifies to the fact that often, longtime residents of the capital townhouses, only a very significant element of that resource. For their own misfortune does not represent a "significant value", so you can them together with that resource to "sell" or rather "give" in the process of re-privatization. Thoroughly discussed the entire methodology of the process, including the most famous of its beneficiaries, officials who s dealings easier, and lawyers, who give it a semblance of legality or "historical justice". In fact, however, we are faced with, which not only harms the current residents and does not lead to any redress wrongs, and only generates another. On the basis of often dubious, unverifiable information, or verified in a cursory manner the city gets rid of entire apartment buildings with tenants.

They condemn them thus at the mercy of speculators-owners who want to get rid of them by any means, of course, ranging from repeated lifting of rent, and often going so well to threats and harassment. In the book we get to know in detail the history of at least some houses and their inhabitants fight. How bitterly admit the authors, this fight is rarely attracts the attention of the media and the public, when the tenants themselves provide details of their ordeal, many incredulous that such things can happen in the "rule of law". A Tenant ordeal lasts for years and is carried out with the participation of municipal councilors and officials. Not only do they ignore the matter tenants, but also fruitfully facilitate new kamienicznikom their actions. That consent, as revealed recently, the scandal of the re-privatization of the plot from Chmielna 70, apparently has its price, and allows handsomely "earn some extra money themselves" to clerical salaries. It remains, however, still an open question whether this another example of "re-privatization" finally will force policy makers to regulate this issue. At this point, the reader is presented with a carefully that they were already efforts related to the introduction of these regulations and how little so far been done in this case. A condition of the existing permits for activities "cleaners townhouses" and subsequent purchasers townhouses speculators not only in Warsaw but also in other cities. We meet, so examples of action against tenants Poznan building at Stolarska Street, as well as from Lodz and Krakow.

The tenants not being able to count on the support of officials and the authorities have to organize themselves, often learn from their mistakes, carefully studying the law, learning the mechanisms governing the media to be able to interest the public his fate. Regardless of any obstacles, this uphill battle teaches tenants mutual assistance and solidarity, brings a small victory and gives hope. Jolanta Brzeska died fighting ... and just continue the struggle for justice is the best tribute to the memory of her.
