Evictions in Amsterdam - timeline

14-10-2008 06:51

Due to a scheduled power outage at the location of the server, reports about today's eviction wave in Amsterdam are posted here in the Free Spaces section of
Eviction waves take place 3 times a year in Amsterdam. Today about 6 buildings will be evicted, among which the well known autonomous centre PS28/Joe's Garage.

Arrestantengroep: 06-42413496
NIEUWE nummer om berichten naar Indymedia door te geven: 06-17 164 974

Het eerste pand dat vandaag ontruimd werd is PS28. De ME had 2 uur nodig om zo'n 30 mensen eruit te halen, zonder dat het pand gebarricadeerd was. Het tweede pand is de Barcelona in de Staatsliedenbuurt - maar daar is de politie nog steeds bezig.
Ostadestraat en Bonairestraat zijn odertussen ontruimt. Ook de Steenbreek is ontruimt, en IJmere heeft daar meteen anti-kraak in geplaatst. De op zondag gekraakte school op de Geulstraat krijgde vanmiddag te horen, dat zij als nog als 429 verklaard waren. Twee uur later lijkt ook dat pand ontruimt te zijn.

9 mensen uit de PS28 zijn ondertussen weer vrij gelaten. (en de arrestantengroep vraagd zoals altijd, dat mensen even melden als zij vrij zijn...)
