In the last two weeks alternative Squats around Europe has been
violently evicted
and its occupants injured and physically attacked by police and /or
security agencies (bailiffs) .
The general wave of "criminalization" and "repression" of social
movement is not stopping .

# Last Thursday in Paris, La Clinique an alternative space in Montreuil
in Paris has been violently evicted.
The former clinique was "opened" in January to denounce and expose among
others, the problem of urban
speculation within the city and the current impossible access to housing
for many young people that are not
willing to pay two/third of their salaries to get a roof on their head.
During the eviction ( a RAID style eviction from the roof, with Tazer
Guns and arms) one of the occupants
has been hit by a "flash-ball gun" shot on his head and lost one eye.
Others have been injured and arrested during the eviction.
More infos :

# Few days before always in Paris a long term (and critical )occupation
of sans-papier has been evicted
by trade union activist from the CGT  wearing white masks  and metal
bars like a sort of paramilitary security
service of the same trade union, pretending this to be a solution to
their own internal class conflict.
See pictures here :

#In Prague, on the 30th of June another eviction, headed by security
agency and backed by Riot Police,
ended, with a violent eviction, an eleven years functioning cultural and
social center, which represented the
last place of its kind in the Czech Republic.
