Eviction of Liebig34 in Berlin – fight for anarcha&queer-feminist spaces!
Liebig 34 is an anarcha-queer-feminist and selforganized house-project in East Berlin (Friedrichshain). Since 1990, the house hosts numerous collectives; at the moment the separate collectives infoladen „Daneben“, the event space L34-Bar and the anarcha-queer-feminist living-project (without cis men).
The date of the trial for the legal enforcement of the eviction is on November 15th, 2019. On the blog liebig34.blogsport.de can be found a statement about the current situation: The owner “wants to snitch away the house, while the politicians are trying to keep our mouths shut. Both parties are awaiting a final court decision. We do not let any cis-men decide about the future of our anarcha-queer-feminist project, cause simply no one should decide about us, but ourselves.”
What does it mean if such a safer space is evicted?
We like to discuss this question with you, connect past and ongoing struggles and learn from the exchange of experiences.
Some may decide to support this struggle directly there. But not everyone can or wants to travel to support. Still, there is possibilities to support: The house apprechiates explicitely soli-action, soli-events, soli-money, soli-expressions and whatever comes to your minds, from everywhere.
So we invite you to the info event for updates about the current situation, and to exchange and discuss how to support 34 in their struggle!
Further we will present the Liebig34 based project “CosyColdCaféTalks” which deals with the topic Radical Softness and read texts of the blog cosycoldkitchentalks.noblogs.org linked with it.
Additionally we requested a video with impressions from the house.
All genders welcome!
The building is currently not wheelchair accessible.
Access to the House
There is a step before the garden gate and then 5 steps leading to the main entrance, each 17 cm high, door widths in the building vary between 50 cm (upstairs washroom door) and 80 cm (entrance door).
The bathrooms are so far only on the upper floor and in the basement. The door to the meeting room is 75 cm wide (as most other doors in the building). There is no bathroom on the ground floor.
Both washrooms in the building are gender neutral, there are name tags and pronoun buttons by the entrance.
The kids room on the second floor can be used for childcare or as a calm space for people who need to be able to opt out of events and minimize input (sound, light, people).
