[poland] Przychodnia squat under attack!

category international | housing | news report author Monday November 11, 2013 20:03author by nn Report this post to the editors

Today during the March of Independence in Warsaw (Poland), nationalist militants broke off from the march and attacked the squat "Przychodnia" social centre. They were trying to "get" the centre. The police stood by and did not intervene for at least 20 minutes

Squaters defended themselves from the roof and repelled the attack. The nationalist burned one car, the injured are more nationalists.

english version:

Around 3:45 pm the participants of the independence march attacked Przychodnia social centre. It is owing only to our own determination and calmness that we managed to resist the nationalist aggression. A few people were injured but nobody's life is in danger.

Neo-fascists were prepared to comment on the matter in the media and immediately informed that it was the people from the squat who attacked their march from the roof throwing stones in their direction. It is obvious that it was impossible because the end of Skorupki street, where the building is located, is around 200 meters from Marszałkowska street, along which nationalists were marching.

As we can see on a few videos, a paramilitary called The Guard of The Independence March, whose role was to protect the march, made it possible to pass for the group of a few hundred people, armed and ready to fight. The participants of The Independence March, flares, bottles and stones in their hands, rushed into Przychodnia.

The nationalists set one car on fire and devastated another one, damaged the building trying get inside, but fortunately we managed to resist the attack. It was possible only because we had kept watch on the roof (we had been threatened for some time already) and reacted fast to put out flares which fell inside the building.
We want to stress that despite the fact that the police squads were stationed a few hundred meters from us, it took them 20 minutes to intervene. If we had listened to the police and ignnored the danger, the squat would have been burnt down.

The Goebbelsian propaganda of the National Movement is trying to make it appear like an act of hooliganism - despite the fact that it was the officially appointed guard of the march who let the attackers leave the march and helped them evacuate afterwards. At the moment we are getting prepared for another raid, stay alert!

With antifascist salutations,
Przychodnia Collective.
