(en) Poland, rozbrat: Judgment on apartment cleaners [machine translation]

Date Sat, 5 May 2018 11:26:16 +0300

Today, in the building of the Grunwald-Jezyce District Court in Poznan, members and tenants of the tenant's movement, as well as tenants and tenants of Poznan tenements met on the announcement of the verdict in the case of cleaning houses. ---- The Poznan tenant movement 6 years ago organized a public collection under the slogan "Solidarnie z Lokatorami". It was thanks to her that the WSL could pay for the plenipotentiary, who represented the residents in the trial against the Poznan cleaners of tenement houses. At the same time, we were prepared that Polish law enforcement agencies would not act quickly. Then the problem of displacement was marginalized and devalued by the majority of institutions. Despite the victory, in the form of sentences condemning Piotr Sruba, Pawel Zukowski and Adrian Wozniak to the penalty of absolute imprisonment - successively two years, one year and ten months - and the need to pay compensation to tenants, displacement in Poznan will probably still be a problem. Gentlemen with proverbial "thick necks" also appear under the tie as "urban activists",pursuing their businesses.

Is it really a win, is a turning point for residential traffic and residents of Poznan? We are not so sure. On the one hand, the defendant was seated only by contractors, and not by the ordering party, who were associated with humiliation and intimidation, with threats. Exposing the residents sometimes to health and life. It happened that the oldest people persecuted by the cleaners did not live to the end of the process, eg dying of a heart attack. Principals and people who have used the services of "cleaners" called "administering", which actually boil down to paying for the tenants, "living insert", "ballast burdening the resource and property", remain unpunished. The collection bodies and the prosecutor's office did a lot to absolutely grant them, neither disclose nor be held accountable. It is the efforts of the tenants who created the Poznan tenant movement and supporting journalists and residents that led to the disclosure of links between the cleaners of tenement houses and subsidiaries of NeoBank and specific names of people employing, among others, Piotr Srube. The Poznan prosecutor's office ignored documents showing police cooperation with Piotr Sruba. Therefore, this judgment is only a starting point for further discussion on the scale of the dynamically developing real estate services market - providing resettlement services. With many years of consent from the state and local authorities, it has been developing dynamically, for at least 20 years. Tenants will never forget the cynical councils of Poznan policemen - to hire a security company if they want to ensure security on the free real estate market. We also remember the cooperation of policemen with the very cleaner of tenement houses, consisting of on providing officers with information and warning against the actions of tenant traffic. In due course, Poznan policemen receivedthe right reward . The prosecution and repression of the participants of the tenant movement was more often and extremely easy for the police.

With equal sense of shame, today's verdict can be received by politicians and officials associated with Poznan. Starting from the former Governor of Wielkopolska, Piotr Florek, who promised tenants harassed by Piotr Sruba, restoring water supplies; former President of the City of Poznan Ryszard Grobelny, effectively hiding from the lodgement protests. In many ways, the dam avoided taking responsibility for the housing policy of the city and the lack of respect for the rights of the harassed inhabitants. The former head of ZKZL Jaroslaw Pucek should be ashamed. Mr. Pucek tried to play the role of the only fair, ostentatiously leaving the studio of one of the television stations "in protest" against the invitation to the program (as he knew earlier) Piotr Sruby. Puck's empty gesture did not interfere with the implementation of the shameful program of the container ghetto for the so-called difficult tenants, using the same rhetoric as Screw, or implementing a policy of urban displacement, instead of housing programs. To this day, Jaroslaw Pucek prides himself on his projects, while being a lawyer he did not take up the defense of residents of "cleaned" tenement houses. It is worth remembering in the context of political ambitions declared by Jaroslaw Puck.

Today's verdict is a signal for those who are still engaged in the cleaning of townhouses. Numerous interventions of the Wielkopolska Association of Tenants connected with illegal evictions, displacements and cleaning of tenement houses continue. Only people and methods change. "Cleaning" tenement houses is not a marginal problem for a dozen or so tenants (as it results from today's court judgment, Sruba was responsible for harassing more than 50 tenants, but there were many more). It is a systemic problem related to the economic situation and the interests of developers and banks over the rights of residents.

Determination and joint struggle of tenants and tenants led to the process of cleaning the tenement houses. We're fighting!
