|just read the official statement:|
The national court has spoken ... but nobody listened ...
Yesterday on Monday the 28th the national court decided to second the decision of Copenhagen City Court from 2003. This means that we have lost the right to use the house.
After the verdict we had a huge meeting with several hundred people where we discussed what to do.
Of course we decided not to follow the decision of the court. We have not spent the last 24 years developing a unique culture centre used by thousands of kids and youngsters from the whole city, - and the rest of the world- just to throw it all away on the whim of a corrupt legal system.
Throughout this whole process we have tried to get the politicians to take responsibility for their mistakes and join the efforts to find a solution. They have not showed any interest in this.
Therefore we must underline that if a political solution is made impossible then confrontations will be inevitable!
What will happen now is uncertain but we will prepare ourselves for an eviction attempt from the police in the upcoming weeks and months.
At the same time we are encouraging everybody everywhere to do actions in support of Ungdomshuset and send their pictures and statements to email@example.com.
By so doing, we will show Faderhuset and the politicians, that the only authority over Jagtvej 69 is Ungdomshusets weekly assembly.
Show up in September!!!
We would also like to invite everybody for the weekend 22nd and 24th of September. There will be a lot of things going on. A large demonstration on the 23rd and a Reclaim the Streets action on the 24th amongst parties, exhibitions, debates and more. It is going be a blast dont miss it.
