İşgal evi nedir sorusuna Yeldeğirmeni Donkişot sosyal merkezindekilerin cevabı…
Voor Cineac Extra kijken we terug naar Kraken in Rotterdam, onder andere in het Schieblock. Dit gebouw zit nu vol bedrijven, wie zaten er ruim 10 jaar geleden?
Gezi parkı ruhunu üflemeye devam ediyor! Gezi günlerindeki özgürlüğü, dayanışmayı, iletişimi içselleştiren ”çapulcular” Gezi’den aldıkları ilhamı yeni biçimlere dönüştürüyor. Gezi’den sonra kurulan mahalle forumlarından olan Yeldiğermeni Dayanışması, mahallelerindeki 20 yıldır çöplük olan sahipsiz binayı işgal edip kamusal bir alana dönüştürmek için çalışıyor. Hiç bir hiyerarşinin olmadığı bu örgütlenme, minyatür bir gezi dünyası yaratarak bunu mahallelilerin faydasına açmak ve ‘başka bir dünya’ nın mümkün olduğunu hepimize göstermek istiyor.

Je právo soukromého vlastníka nadřazeno veřejnému zájmu? Může squatting nabídnout řešení problému absence sociálního bydlení v České republice, nebo se jedná pouze o subkulturní fenomén? Má majitel právo nechat svůj dům spadnout? Může být odpor vyjádřený občanskou neposlušností legitimní? Jak souvisí konání developerských společností a silných hráčů na bytovém trhu s problémem vyloučených lokalit? Proč dům na pražském Pohořelci stále chátrá a kdo se skrývá za firmou CPI? Dokument o squatterské akci, při níž bylo během jednoho dne obsazeno sedm chátrajících domů, vznikl v produkci A2larmu.

On the 8th of November 2011, we left the Whitmarley, which has been the first home of “the Birmingham social centre”. The social centre is much more than the building; it is the concept, community and people that have formed around it.
In easter, months before we started the project we set out these as the reasons “we”, then a bunch of students who had been organising on campus should create a squatted social space.

Bonnington Square is right in the heart of London, just two minutes walk from the river and just ten minutes from the Houses of Parliament. In the early eighties the one hundred houses of the Square were all squatted, forming a bohemian community from all around the world.The squat had two community gardens, a cafe, a wholefood shop, a nightclub, a newsletter and even a milkbar. Although it is no longer squatted, there are still many low rent housing cooperatives, and the cafe and the gardens are still collectively run, and the Square is now a model of a modern sustainable urban community.
The documentary film “Squat it the Russian way” is a kind of presentation of modern squats in the Russian territory, of their creation, problems they faced and the reasons why they closed. We wanted to show the peculiarities of the movement , because special features of this country cause a lot of obstacles and dangers to unauthorized occupation of housing. It’s impossible to secure the building for the squatters and to create a social center as they practice it in Europe. The film includes materials of more than 10 squats.

À Grenoble, de 2001 à 2005, une traverse entière a été squattée : plusieurs maisons d’habitation, une salle publique, des ateliers et plein de folies, d’humour, de galères, de collectifs, de colères, d’expérimentations…
Ce film, manigancé par 4 anciennes habitantes du squat est basé sur des recherches archéologiques approfondies, des traces éparses recueillies au fond de divers placards, de tiroirs mal refermés et de poches percées…

Blurring the fluid boundaries between present and future, documentary and fiction, Paths Through Utopias is a feature length utopian road movie exploring a post-capitalist Europe. Shot during a 7 month journey in 2008 visiting ten utopian experiments, the film is half of the book-film project published in France by Editions Zones. From the direct action Climate Camp set up illegally besides Heathrow airport to a hamlet squatted by French art punks, occupied self-managed Serbian factories to a free love commune in an ex Stasi base, this magicorealist travelogue transports us to a parallel universe where money is worthless and private property has been abolished.

This documentary takes a contemporary look at squatting in England. Mostly filmed in South London, it is set against the backdrop of the approaching olympics and the new law (passed today) which makes the practice of living in unused properties illegal. It explores the kinds of people who live in squats and why, and addresses how these places contribute to society. The film takes the view that squatting in itself is an artform.
Part 1 explores an underground punk gig at a squat, and we meet some of the people who help the night happen. We also learn a bit about squatting in the 1970s.
In Part 2 we talk to a band big on the southern squat scene. We visit the oldest squat in England and see how they open their arms to the public. We are introduced to a campaign group opposed to the law criminalising squatting, and we hear from the council and a housing association. We also visit an art exhibition with work from people who have been living homeless.

Statement by the new inhabitants of Bellamystraat 135hs
To everyone interested,
As long as there is emptiness and a need for housing, people will squat. The dutch ‘kraken en leegstand’ law, that should be aimed not only at banning squatting but also at fighting emptiness, is only being enforced partly. While the state evicts squats in a law and order fashion, where the law is the law and nobody can get around it, the other part of the same law is treated like it doesn’t even exist. The state once again shows it’s real aim: while repression is constantly rising capital is still being defended.
We want to live in a world in which bosses, cops and politicians don’t tell us what we can and can’t do, where no relationship is based on authority, and where everybody is treated equally, but no one has to be the same. The capitalist system that we now live in does not offer us any chance for this: we’re kept busy with the newest crap manufactured by childlabour and we’re kept scared with an economic crisis. Meanwhile exactly this crisis is used to take all our social rights, rights that have been fought for for so long, and they put a large ‘for sale’ sign on them.
Thousands of squatters in England and Wales face possible eviction after a change in the law. As of midnight on Saturday, it is a criminal offence to squat in a residential property, meaning that homeowners will no longer need to go to court in order to secure an eviction. The change has prompted protests, as lawyers representing the homeless say the new law will criminalise the most vulnerable in British society. Al Jazeera’s Peter Sharp reports from London.

At approximately 7.30am on Wednesday, September 12th, in Thessaloniki, at least five MAT anti-riot police squadrons and two jeeps with EKAM special suppressive antiterrorist units lined up outside the anarchist squat Delta and stormed the building soon thereafter.
Ten people were arrested inside the building and others who arrived in solidarity were detained on the street. Also, more solidaritarians who gathered near the squat were surrounded and cut off by the police.
