On Saturday at 1 p.m. a protest in defense of the 28-year-old social, cultural and political center Rozbrat began. For several years now, each subsequent birthday of this place has been held in an atmosphere of eviction. This is mainly due to the lack of involvement of the Poznan authorities in preventing re-privatization. to which the shady company Darex wants to lead. ---- All details regarding irregularities related to the plot on which Rozbrat is located can be found here and in the latest statement. ---- The demonstration began with speeches in which attempts were made to outline the current legal situation, the intentions of the Darex company and the lack of reaction of the city authorities to the attempt to extort a plot belonging to the state treasury. President Jaskowiak is overtaking his predecessor Ryszard Grobelny in submission to business. Currently, as a result of the passivity of the Poznan authorities, the city may lose a public property worth over PLN 7 million.

Then, Agnieszka, a trade unionist and leader of the 2019 teachers' strike in Poznan, took the floor. She told the gathered people that it was at Rozbracie that many groups and marginalized people could count on help. She also emphasized the role of Rozbrat in organizing protesting teachers and teachers and supporting feminist campaigns such as Manifa and Black Protest.

The representative of the Przychodnia squat from Warsaw emphasized the importance of joint struggle for spaces for social and political activities, which set the tone for many protests and actions. In turn, the anarchists from Belarus who attended the demonstration appreciated that it was Rozbrat where they could count on getting help after forced migration resulting from the repressions inflicted by the home regime of Lukashenka. Also, young people associated with the Employee Initiative emphasized that it was thanks to the meetings at Rozbrat that they could engage in trade union activities and fight for their rights and the rights of exploited workers.

The protest moved along Pulaskiego Street, and then headed to Aleje Wielkopolskie. The following slogans were shouted to the rhythm of the music played by Samba Halastra: "Rozbrat stays", "We are, we act, we will not give up Rozbrat", "Tenants are not goods". At the height of the viaduct, the so-called pitted, a group of people hung a banner with the slogan "Rozbrat stays. Poznan is a city without eviction ". Heading to the Wodziczki Park, they shouted "Save the green wedge, we won't leave this land". The stopping point in the Park is located in the vicinity of newly built buildings, which are the result of the gradual development of a wedge of greenery, the limitation of the park area and the lack of perspective on the part of the city authorities. Climate changes should encourage the protection of green areas, while the authorities of Poznan allow for their increasingly stronger reduction, ignoring the losses incurred by all city residents. The few who can afford a flat in new blocks live in an area fenced off and protected by CCTV monitoring, apparently believing that the problems of a concrete city do not concern them.

The manifestation continued through the park to a picturesque path that local residents call the Passage to Narnia. Here you could hear the touching voice of a representative of the young generation, assuring him that he wants to protect this place from further development. It is worth noting that the residents have already organized cleaning campaigns for the park several times and are strongly committed to its protection. Speaking on behalf of the Extinction Rebellion group, she emphasized the fighting community that links its organization with Rozbrat, despite the differences in the approach of both groups to certain issues or methods of operation. Fighting for the protection of nature, greenery, resistance to concreteosis and climate change, which the government ignores. Following the park alleys, the demonstrators could see another banner hung on the PST viaduct with the slogan "Rozbrat stays. Poznan without concrete ".

On reaching the area of the Bagdanka Free City Garden (WOMB), you could hear a short history of this place. The garden was established two years ago, after the eviction of the former allotment owners, which took place due to Darex, which threatened them with fines for non-contractual use of the company's alleged property. In fact, the area of the former ROD Bogdanka is another plot of land taken over as a result of wild re-privatization and in suspicious circumstances, which was due to the inertia of the plot management. Not agreeing to the fact that another green area would be taken over and most likely sold, activists from Rozbrat decided to occupy it. In this way, an open community garden was created - it enables gardening and ecological farming. There were also meetings, lectures, workshops and even concerts. WOMB also serves as a place to rest for residents. It is also used by refugees from Ukraine who spoke out in protest, supporting Rozbrat and WOMB. They emphasized how much this place means to them, in Ukraine they had to leave their gardens, here they can find respite and are greeted with open arms.

The demonstration headed back to Pulaskiego Street, near Rozbrat. Chanting slogans all the time, people stopped to listen to the last speeches. The representative of Rozbrat recalled how important this place was for building the tenant movement in Poznan. It was in Rozbrat where the Wielkopolska Association of Tenants was established. It was here that the protest and actions against the cleaners of tenement houses were prepared. It is in Rozbrut where tenants are supported in the event of wild evictions and violation of their rights.

The culmination of the protest was throwing a banner from the roof of a nearby building with the slogan "Rozbrat stays. Poznan without exploitation ". On the roof, in the clouds of colorful smoke and flares, a concert of Riot Squad took place, which performed the piece "Rozbrat stays". This was the slogan that ended today's protest and may it sound strong enough for representatives of all forces that are trying to destroy this place - There is no Poznan without Rozbrat!
