The schwarzer kanal has received an eviction date for
31.12.2009. This has come from the owners of the land Hoch Tief, who
say that they need all of the land we occupy to start a huge building
project and for the access roads to the site. Hoch Tief claim that they
dont want to start the building project so soon, but unless they start
the developement in 2010 they will have to pay a large fine to the
building regulators (BIMA).
Over the last few years, our location
in the Media spree development zone in central Berlin has put us in the
firing line of an invasion of big companies, and the gentrification of
Kreutzberg-Mitte. However this is the first time we have recieved a
concrete eviction date.
Schwarzer Kanal is mobilising to resist, and maintain our unique status
as a queer political and cultural wagenplatz.
Schwarzer kanal is incomparable to just another concrete box.

A meeting will be held during UP YOU E@RS about the eviction! It’s scheduled to happen during the voku on Saturday. Stay tuned for more details!
Schwarzer kanal bleibt!
