Eviction of Rigaer 94 Kadterschmiede and workshop for refugees housing: cynical political attack, Statement from Liebig 34

rigaraumung

This morning between 7:00 and 8:00 the cops went in to our neighbouring project Rigaer 94. Special forces again broke open their doors to enter the Cultural center/autonomous space of Kadterschmiede and the 94 workshop. They also entered the stairway and the attic. As far as we know, in a case that would be an exception for them, they stuck to their own rules and didn’t touch the flats. (However, they are still threatening to enter the flats and might in the future)

Beside the cops, there were more or less 15 construction site workers and several security guards whose employer is unknown who also entered Rigaer 94. Compared to last time, they didn’t empty the coal cellar but are about to steal the complete inventory of Kadterschmiede cultural center. Besides the mentioned projects, also the attic of the front house is affected. Several people used to live in the attic. Their living place got evicted, and the people themselves got put out on the street.

bullshit
Statement from Hausverwaltung

The housing administration (Hausverwaltung) that manages 94 announced in a press release today that the ground floor (Erdgerschoss) would be converted into housing for refugees. It has been a part of our politics for a long time to build up structures to support refugees and to create a living space for them, including within our projects. The cops’ procedure this morning can only be regarded as an empty and cold strategic move. The Rigaer 94 collective already contains spaces in which refugees live by their own choice, the way they want to live. This autonomous space is being destroyed to create rooms which remove and disables the possibilities for autonomous lives of the people who are supposed to move in.The new living spaces will, in addition, be rented at the average renting price for Friedrichshain, which is around €15 per square meter.



Rigaer 94 is an autonomous space, in organised legitimate resistance against the system that created the refugee situation, a situation which they are now using as an excuse to eliminate our space. We will not stand down against these tactics. We are angry about what is going on in our neighbourhood. Today is Day X (Tag X). Go on the streets. Get creative.

Liebig painting open call!

We would like to invite all painters, street artists and other graphic art creators to get in touch with us to help us beautify our completely white hallway…

After a fire in the house in autumn, the hallway has been renovated and we were left with totally boring, way too clean and white hallway, which is just waiting for some brilliant artwork – and it could be yours!

This part of the house is also the entrance to the notorious XB bar, so it won‘t be only the habitants of L34 admiring your work ;)


We definitely prefer feminist, female / queer artists to participate and we will give priority to those, but we welcome any gender!

l34

During the event, we will provide food, drinks and collect donations for your expenses (we can discuss all the details via e-mail). We would like it to be a public event, so people can watch you while you‘re painting. If you do any kind of performance / live painting, the better and more exciting!

We plan the event to take place in the first week of May, but if you can‘t make it then, there’s still the possibility to come other time, if you want to add your artwork to our entrance.

We have a lot of space here, which we would love to cover with something meaningfull and nice to look at. If you would like to participate, simply send us an e-mail with your idea or even ready project, informations what you need etc.

We‘re looking forward to hear from you!

Threat of Eviction of Radical Queer Wagonplace

Call for Rally – acute threat of eviction of Radical Queer Wagonplace KANAL

„Just recently we ONLY found out through the press that the senate and the districts of berlin together have published a list, of places where so called „MUF“ (modular shelter for refugees) should be built. The only place on this list where people are living, is our home in Kiefholzstraße 74. By building a lager they want to force us to leave. Until now there was no direct communication with us.

For two years BIM – Berlin grounds and houses company (that is maintaining and selling property of the state) is fighting against us and trying to make us sign a contract with racist paragraphs that forbids refugees, rrom_nja and people without papers or with Residenzpflicht to live at our place.

Radical queer wagonplace KANAL is not only our home but also a political project that is threatened with eviction right now. KANAL is a queer space with a majority of refugees, migrants, black people, rrom_nja and people of color who are together trying to live self-determined, based on the uncompromising fight against any kind of state power such as racism, classism, sexism, inter*trans* and homo discrimination.

On wednesday, feb 24th at 4.30 pm there is the general assembly of the Neukölln district politicians in Rathaus Neukölln. Let’s fight together in solidarity against this structural racist displacement policy! To not be replaced by a state run concentration camp that has mass deportation and privatisation as consequences. We won’t let them play us off against each other! We will gather at 4pm in front of Rathaus Neukölln to say NO!

Against concentration camps!
Against displacement!
Against deportation!
Defend self-determined living spaces!“

Where: Bürgeramt Rathaus Neukölln, Karl-Marx-Str. 83, 12040 Berlin (U7 Rathaus Neukölln)
When: Wednesday, 24.02.2016, from 4 pm

„Vor kurzem haben wir ZUERST aus der Presse erfahren, dass der Senat in Kooperation mit den Bezirken eine Liste veröffentlicht hat, mit den Plänen auf dem von uns bewohnten Gelände an der Kiefholzstraße 74, eine sogenannte „MUF“ (Modulare Unterkünfte für Flüchtlinge) zu bauen um uns damit zu verdrängen. Bis jetzt hat keine Kommunikation mit uns stattgefunden.

Seit zwei Jahren kämpft BIM, – Berliner Immobiliengesellschaft, eine Firma die städtisches Eigentum verwaltet und verkauft, gegen uns und versucht uns zu zwingen einen Vertrag mit einer rassistischen Klausel zu unterschreiben, der es Geflüchteten, Rrom_nja und Menschen ohne gültigen Aufenthaltstitel oder Residenzpflicht untersagt sich auf dem Platz aufzuhalten.

Radikal Queerer Wagenplatz KANAL ist nicht nur unser Zuhause, sondern auch ein politischer Raum der akut von der Räumung bedroht ist. KANAL ist ein queerer Space mit mehrheitlich Geflüchteten, Migrant_innen, Schwarze Menschen, Rrom_nja und Menschen of Color, die versuchen zusammen ein selbst bestimmtes Leben zu führen, basierend auf dem kompromisslosen Kampf gegen jegliche Form von Gewalt und Machtausübung, so wie Rassismus, Klassismus, Sexismus, Inter* Trans* und Homo Diskriminierungen.

Am Mittwoch, 24.02 um 16:30, findet im Rathaus Neukölln die Bezirksvollversammlung statt. Lasst uns gemeinsam und solidarisch gegen diese strukturelle, rassistische Verdrängungspolitik kämpfen! Um uns nicht durch ein staatlich verwaltetes Massenlager zu ersetzen, dass nicht anderes als Massenabschiebungen und Privatisierung gleichzeitig zur Folge hat. Wir lassen uns nicht gegeneinander ausspielen. Wir werden uns ab 16 Uhr uns vor dem Rathaus Neukölln versammeln um klar zu machen: Wir sagen NEIN!

Gegen Massenlager!
Gegen Verdrängung!
Gegen Abschiebung!
Selbst bestimmte Lebensräume verteidigen!“
