Netherlands Squat Ban in Effect
As of October first, 2010, Squatting is now illegal in the Netherlands.
As an answer to the new eviction policy roughly a thousand squatters and sympathisers demonstrated on the first of October in Amsterdam. Out of the demo a house got squatted and the group remained for a while to support and celebrate this first so called "illegal squatting action". They hung many banners, one of which said "With hollow laws you cannot fill empty houses".
Tonight on Circle A Radio, we will talk with Sonne, who has lived at her squat in Amsterdam for the past 7 years, and with Lisa Loving, Portland area journalist, KBOO Volunteer and former squatter in Amsterdam.
