Squatting Ban in the Netherlands

For the last three years a ban on squatting has been in preparation in Dutch politics. A new act that is to ban squatting in the Netherlands passed through parliament on October 15th. Despite strong critique from the High Court, the union of city councils and even the Amsterdam police force, the christian/rightwing majority in The Hague is pushing this law through. Currently the senate still has to vote on the new act, but given the same majority of parties that voted in favor in parliament also exists in the senate, odds are by January 1st 2010 all squats in the Netherlands will be up for eviction.

December 21, 2009  marks the second anniversary of the announcement that  the Lakotah Nation was unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the United States.

Garry Rowland from Wounded Knee was one of the delegates that made the trip to Washington DC. He said, at the time quote "Today is a historic day and our forefathers speak through us. Our Forefathers made the treaties in good faith with the sacred Canupa and with the knowledge of the Great Spirit. They never honored the treaties, that's the reason we are here today."
