(en) higinio carrocera FAI: A thousand people demonstrate in Slovenia in support of the self-managed center of Rog (ca, de, it, fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 29 Jan 2021 08:21:53 +0200

IFA - Despite the intimidation, the unprecedented police occupation of the city of Ljubljana (Slovenia) and the repression, Nazi provocations and coronavirus measures, we were able to carry out this Friday one of the strongest demonstrations in solidarity with the autonomous space Rog. Up to 1000 individuals attended the demonstration in the city. The police were unable to seriously repress her: only one arrest, some fines, etc. We are also receiving a lot of support and solidarity from around the world. We understand this struggle - which will continue these days - as a struggle against gentrification, the capitalist colonization of our lives and cities, the repression of the police state ... and we are trying to build a broad anti-capitalist and anti-fascist front around the issue.

According to wikipedia, Rog's factory(also known asFactory Rog) is a squatinLjubljana,Slovenia, occupied and open since 2006. Before that, it was an abandoned building near the center of Ljubljana for 15 years, after which the company bicycle manufacturing companyRog willquit. due to high logistics costs. The building is historically best known as the factory where Rog bikes were manufactured between 1953 and 1991.

Today, the former Rog factory serves Ljubljana and the wider community as a space for alternative content that is lacking in an otherwise heavily institutionalized Slovenia. Its 7,000 square meters (75,000 square feet) house many collectives and spaces: multiple gallery spaces, art studios, twoskateparks(including the largest indoor skatepark in the Balkans),Rog Social Centerfor disadvantaged groups (such as migrants and refugees) , various concert venues and nightclubs, a bicycle repair shop, etc. These groups offer a rich program of social and cultural activities. All users participate directly and make decisions collectively ingeneral assemblies.

The legal status of the use of the factory spaces has been controversial from the beginning and escalated on June 6, 2016, when construction workers entered the spaces to begin the demolition process by order of the Mayor of Ljubljana,Zoran Jankovic. On June 14, 2016 the local court decided to stop the demolition of the buildings until the conflict is resolved through the court.
