    really good work especially on the practical aspects, I guess I was getting jealous while reading it, in germoney it's zero tolerance: you go in, and the cops will carry you out in less than 24 hours, regardless what the reaction of the "owner" is, you'll get arrested, no matter how you react to the cops visiting, and law suits are serious, just for deterrence.
    I'll immigrate to pretty sweet Australia next time I'm not able to cover rent. compared to germoney it sounds just too good.

    Yeah, it sounds swell, but you have to also remember that we have a pretty small and shit 'left' over here.
    We're jealous of the German anarchist movement ;)

    kind of sleeping beauties, our german comrades, I guess, but FAU is growing to a serious comeback, and for that you can be jealous...
    but this "zero tolerance" strategy nearly stopped squatting completly, each new attempt to save a building with significant qualities from just rotting away ends up in a kind of suicide commando, followed by arrests and endless law suits.
    it's a really scary buisness in times of dire need, in our city we have hundreds of young people ending up in professional homes for the homeless, and many of them never recover 'cause of alcohol abuse or junk.
    2000 people live on the street, suitable housing isn't rare, but it's too expensive to rent, or not for rent 'cause it's abused for tax evasion, even the liberals constantly complain about that.
    "zero tolerance" came up to prevent the development of "autonom centres" like in Berlin in the 80ies where groups of people got together and started collective living and working. And that's the real loss beside the individual need - the lack of room and opportunity to start projects above the individual need - maybe it's an important aspect "why" the german beauty is still sleeping...

    ps: remember the ice pick daddy? - the girls had their come out (without ice pick), daddy was getting fits and the girls actually live with a neighbor of us, considering to leave home 'cause of his qualities. if there's a need for reinforcement in Australia... the girls are quite promising! - and threatened to become homeless too.

    Australia is mostly made up of ignorant "White Australians" and old British couples, the left here is really tiny. Even the political party's that are supposed to be Leftist are so right-wing that they seem to have the same policies as the stereotypical "right-wing" party's.

    Definitely send those girls over, we need all the reinforcement we can get. :a:

    First I've to complain about beeing pirated by one of my baaad-mannered mates, unable to deal with the freedom of automatic loggins and saved passwords - kreuzsakramentzefix Nikol, get your fucking own personal account or I will let thelittleonestakeyouandfeedyoutothecatwhileyouarestillaliveandthegirlsalwaysbeggedmetodosmartass...

    to the public:
    That will teach him a thing or two, but on the other hand I've to agree with this smartass pirate, squatters guide is definitely good work, very careful, very well thought, very responsible in dealing with the aspect of the ol'law.
    Reading it made me more than jealous, at least you have old British couples (do they still have cookies?), germoney sometimes seems to be a graveyard overcrowded with all kinds of pretend-to-be-middle-class-zombies, barely able to cover their rent, "but always well off", beyond the facade they are just too scared of the authority or their public shame of descending "down" to working class, to return to the living.
    Maybe you're right and we have more numbers, but the movement is too scattered, lacking communication and more important coordination, some of the isolated sparks gleam more or less brightly, but the kindling for catching flame is missing.
    Recently we had some more outdoor action than usual, and I was surprised by the response of quite a fistful "old" veterans reporting back just for the sake of old times, but I wonder if we can get together again.
    Nicol was right, this "zero tolerance" strategy is intended more political repressive than to defend private property, system learned a thing or two from Hamburg and Berlin in the 80's - so no autonom gathering places.
    Suicide action in the mainly ignorant public? The consequences are serious, and we can't even support the handful of brave souls who dare to face the stretched arrests and endless law suits.

    Thanx Punk, I've left parliamentarism long time ago in the litter bin, but this sickening bad show of constantlygrinningsportyniceguynextdoorfacadeonly stay-at-home-liberals makes me throw up about how right I was about the litter bin. It's not very different here compared to pretty Downunder - thanks international public-relation-theory or career-management once used in the economy.
    Left- /right wing heap up in the "middle" position of the politics spectrum, barely distinguishable from each other 'cause their looks alone and completely absorbed by their ambition to manage their 10 seconds of fame in the media. Wow, we have a female cancellor and a gay foreign minister, but she's just a gender-quota puppet playing her role like she's told to do, and this guido westerwelle-shithead called for enforced working duty for the social welfare recipients early in the year - Have I complained enough to ease your jealousy?

    Sorry Wooly, I'm an Anarchist, i can't "send" the girls anywhere - it's 'cause of my genes and it's up to the girls choice to reinforce where they like to...

    But that's another baaaaaad story, daddy leo t. freaked out completely - Nicol didn't knew the whole drama when he quoted.
    It wasn't the @-support the girls asked for, it was "only" a family drama, real life overkill soap, no happy end.
    It's nothing new in the neighborhood, but he really went over the top, did some serious permanent revolution on the furnishing of the appartment, beating up the younger of his daughters badly, threatening the older one with a knife when she tried to defend her sister. The cops went in after daddy damaged a neighbors car, by throwing the girls personal stuff out of a third floor window. He fought the cops too, they took him away to a mental hospital. Trotskysm tends to cause headaches/braindamage?

    Their mother left too without giving a destination, but blaimed the girls badly to be responsible for the trouble. So we took them in, cleaned two rooms out of our kids stuff, giving the girls at least some shelter to calm down and make up their mind. Cops already asked for them, the younger one is still underaged, but the older one is already 18 and the cops accepted her taking responsibility for her sister. The girls are scared like hell of becoming separated, both have to attend to school, I hope the youth authorities will not over-react. Maybe we'll get a lawyer to keep the younger girl out of professional care, but first thing for now is getting them back to self determination - or we rip this joint all together, pirate the Pequod back and join the old British couples of pretty Australia were at least there's a chance for cookies and survivable squattering...

    Guess you'll have to wait a bit Wooly, 'till the reinforments have recovered from trotskysm, at least it was no complete Kronstadt... we'll see.
