Various activists and activists were beaten and stopped. ---- We have always been at the side of self-management experiences in Ljubljana and throughout Slovenia; reality that we have known and with which we have established solid and deep relationships. ---- We are close to the comrades and companions of the ROG and to the whole Ljubljana movement. ---- Below is the international appeal for solidarity received through the APL-FAO anarchist group.
Germinal Anarchist Group
TO OUR INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES: APPEAL FOR SOLIDARITY

Comrades! Many of you have been to one of the two squats in Ljubljana where you fought and loved. For 15 years the Rog has been a center of political activity in the city and in international movements. Today the Rog Factory was brutally cleared. Many of our comrades were violently beaten and arrested. We ask for solidarity all over the world. Let's show oppressors of all kinds that they are creating trouble for the wrong movement! More information below.

XXX ROG FACTORY DECLARATION OF CLEARANCE XXX

Today, January 19, 2021 at 7 a.m., the employees of the Valina security company forcibly entered the spaces of the autonomous Rog plant. With violence, using physical force, they injured some of those present and evicted everyone. Inside, our personal items, pets and valuable equipment were left, along with 15 years of shared dreams, activities, projects, adventures and experiences. The police erected fences around the Rog and began beating supporters who gathered in support in front of the factory gate. Inside the complex, workers demolished most of the side structures and smashed the windows of the main building, which is protected as heritage. At the same time they are taking away, to an unknown place, all of Rog's equipment. More than 10 people have been held in custody, including some injured in need of medical assistance. All contact with them is prevented and we have no information on where they were taken.

Over the past decade and a half, hundreds of people have used the Rog Autonomous Factory for their businesses and thousands of people have attended various events in its spaces. Migrants, people on the margins of society, artists who have not succumbed to the dictates of capitalist culture, skaters, graffiti artists, circus artists and others, who despite the pressures of the capital, municipal security and the police, make this city alive and make the life worth living.

Since the opening of the autonomous Rog factory, the Municipality of Ljubljana has not tolerated the fact that we show the mirror of their gentrification policy. Their policies are turning the city into a Disneyland for tourists and putting profit above the people. This is why they have announced an all-out war against us. After years of fruitless and unpopular legal proceedings against the people who participated in the life of the space, the authorities today decided for a violent and violent raid and for the complete demolition of the space. Regardless of whether they have no ideas or financial means for the future development of the area. Also, not long ago municipal authorities publicly stated that they have no concrete plans for Rog in the current term. There was no information on this attack, obviously carefully planned, not even during last night's session of the municipal government. After all these years of activity and public promotion of the dialogue that the municipality has long since abandoned, we would expect at least a decent deadline to conclude our current projects, protect our assets and a constructive discussion on the municipality's plans regarding the eviction of users. Instead, the municipality of Ljubljana lied to the public, to the elected councilors and to us. we would expect at least a decent deadline to wrap up our current projects, protect our assets, and a constructive discussion of council's plans regarding potential user eviction.

The attack on the Rog does not happen in a political vacuum. In recent months we have been witnessing various attacks against civil society, as in the cases of Radio Student, Metelkova 6 and other critical actors at the public level. In times when political engagement boils down to poor public visibility of disobedient individuals in the right-wing media, municipal authorities have also decided to use deceptive means on the ground, which is spreading as a safe haven against the phalanx of current governments. . Today the Municipality of Ljubljana has clearly shown which side it really stands on. Evicting people in the midst of a serious epidemic is absurd for the municipality that continually sells its image of green, social, cultural and solidarity capital. After his unsuccessful campaign for the European capital of culture with the motto "Solidarity",

What can you do in support of the Rog?

1. COME IN FRONT OF THE ROG AUTONOMOUS FACTORY. We show them that we are not alone. We cannot let autonomous spaces fall one after another! To attack one is to attack all!
2. SEND A PROTEST LETTER TO THE MUNICIPALITY AND THE POLICE! PUBLISH ONLINE!
They must be held accountable for their crimes, violence, profit and corruption. We cannot allow them to hide their profit plans and controversial actions under the carpet.

3. SHARE INFORMATION, INVITE FRIENDS AND COMPANIES.
We are not fighting for our dignity right now. We fight to be able to exist in this city. We fight for everything that is not capitalistic, gentrified, privatized, educated, ordered; for everything that breathes freely and does not let itself be captured by the logic of profit that runs our common city.

Against the opportunistic synergy of fascists, policemen, municipal profiteers and capital! Save the Rog Factory!
