>> Last Thursday the Dutch parliament has passed a new law making squatting
>> a felony. Only the senate still has to vote on it's passing now.
>> However, with a rightwing majority, odds are effectively january 1st all
>> squats in the Netherlands will be up for eviction. This will mark the
>> end of an era, a carte blanche for the destruction of our social centers
>> and infrastructure. Not to mention the criminalisation of thousands of
>> people suffering from the housing shortage, for whom squatting has
>> always been a legal means of acquiring a roof over their heads.
>> An occupation of parliament square during the voting ended with riot
>> cops charging into the tent camp and arresting about one hundred people.
>> Photo's can be seen on http://www.indymedia.nl/nl/2009/10/62251.shtml
>> (during the day) and http://www.indymedia.nl/nl/2009/10/62308.shtml (the
>> eviction).
>> Saturday, october 24th a demonstration is planned in Utrecht, followed
>> by decentralised action days from october 30th till november 1st.
>> We call upon your solidarity, be it at the demonstration or at the many
>> Dutch embassies and consulates. Show them we are everywhere, be
>> creative, show your dissent!
>> for sleeping places during the demonstration and action days, mail
>> kraakverbod at puscii.nl
