After waging a battle against Christian right-wing sect Faderhuset for several years, recent decisions in both the Copenhagen City Court and the National Court have ordered the current occupiers of infamous Danish social centre Ungdomshuset out on December 14th, 2006. This decision and the process through which it was made is hotly contested. This is obvious through both extensive coverage in mainstream Cophenhagen social democratic newspapers like Politiken and in how opposition from the centre´s users more recently spilled over into street fighting when police attacked ( 1 ) a Reclaim the Streets demonstration. This interview was carried out during their 24th birthday party which was on during the weekend of October 25th. It tries to go into some of the recent history around the Ungdomshuset court saga so far, the strange alliances formed around it and how the future is likely to pan out for a building that remains highly emblematic as a symbol for the left overs of the Northern European autonome scene. read full story / add a comment

"If you accept that the bubble has popped, which most casual observers would, then we will have a period of rising inventories, falling sales and static price growth. There is nothing supporting current valuations, no supply deficit, potential investment returns, prospects of cheaper financing or outside macro economic developments.

We are on the slope of hope." - Duplex @ thepropertypin read full story / add a comment
