Un miler de persones es concentra en aquests moments al voltant de la plaça de Sants de Barcelona en defensa del centre social Can Vies. El desallotjament ha començat a les 13:20h del migdia però no ha agafat per sorpresa les activistes, que s’han pogut ubicar als nombrosos punts de resistència distribuïts per tot l’edifici.
We began what’s now Alara by selling fruit and veg that would otherwise have been thrown out. We bought a sack of flour from a wholefoods wholesaler near the squat and started baking bread. Eventually we squatted in a retail premises and turned it into a wholefoods shop.
We got evicted from that shop and another, second premises within two years, so, in 1978, we leased a small shop just off the Euston Road. The shop continued to do very well, but the area was being redeveloped and Camden Council allocated our shop as the site office, so we struck a good deal with them to move to a bigger place on Marchmont Street in Bloomsbury.
We wanted to produce really healthy food, and there were no cereals on the market that had no added sugar, salts or fats at that time, so we started making muesli. With more space in Bloomsbury, we were able to get a muesli mixing machine. It all expanded from that point on, until we had our own factory in Camley Street, King’s Cross. We’ve been embedded in the community for years now – we’ve planted lots of trees near the factory, we have an orchard, and the people who work here live close by, too. Our next mission is to sequester more carbon than the carbon we create in making our products.
Our focus is on creating a healthy product with high nutritional value. As well as keeping our muesli free from sugar, salt and fat, we use superfoods such as goji berries and linseeds, and we’ve developed a complex database that we use to develop blends with specific requirements – such as high selenium, or vitamin C – that will still taste great.
Alara was the first cereal company in the world to be certified organic, and now our factory produces about half of all the organic muesli sold in the UK. We are also the first company to be licensed by the Coeliac Society. We’ve come a long way since squatting, but being accessible to everyone remains central to what we do.

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.

With rent rising in London, and elsewhere in the UK, young people are finding that squatting is the way to an affordable home.
It is now illegal to move into empty houses or flats so squatters are living in offices and factories.

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…
Nos histoires, nos luttes, sont précieuses, invisibles et trop souvent étouffées.
