Irish Anarchists Show Solidarity with Ungdomshuset

category dublin | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Friday March 09, 2007 15:52author by r. Report this post to the editors

Today from 2-3 pm comrades from Anarchist Prisoner Support, Polish Anarchist Federation, the Worker's Solidarity Movement and even some friends from Copenhagen gathered outside the Danish embassy to show their solidarity with the youth of Copenhagen in their struggle against the state.

The eviction of Ungdomshuset sparked a spontaneous show of anger against the Danish state, barricades and fires were built all over Copenhagen, as the youth took the battle to the police. The state has responded by throwing away its own rule book, adopting a tactic of pre-emptive arrests of radicals in order to quell the disturbances. At this stage, over 600 people have been arrested and of these 200 are being retained in custody.

People are being searched by the police if they look in any way unusual and It is possible to be arrested for as little as having text messages advertising demonstrations in your phone. People can be held in custody, even in solitary confinement purely on the basis of police testimony. Any foreigners who they suspect of being involved in protests are being deported. The police have attacked the right of the arrested to a fair trial by persecuting the prisoner support network Anarchist Black Cross, rading its offices, arresting its activists, and seizing its files.

Today we showed our solidarity with those arrested, and with the global the fight for free spaces. Join us next time.

It says on wikipedia that in 1910 the first international women's conference was held in Copenhagen in Ungdomshuset and international women's day was first established there. What a horrible shame that the house is now gone.

Danish artist Erik Bagge is one of many painters who find inspiration in the work of .C. Andersen saying :- "Very few - today and back in the time of H.C. Andersen - have a realistic relationship to their surroundings. They are afraid to follow the Sweep".

A beautiful swan has become an bloodied ugly ducking. What can we think now? Must we open our homes to Danish youth in exile? Do we go with Hamlet instead? Will the new Christian Fundamentalist Meeting hall to be built on the site tells us better what it means to be or not to be? & to suffer those shots.

Complacent types - educated ladies and gentlemen many of them - think it is enough to say the emperor has no clothes - but it isn't enough. You must test the proposition only to learn those clothes are made of Kevlar and carry masked grotesque faces under helmets - the anonymous police teaching thumbaline and little tiny who's boss. If it wasn't beaten out of our predecessors of the centuries it won't be jailed now. Only the sky has changed.
