CCL-Centro de Cultura Libertária- An anarchist centre in Portugal under eviction threat.
During these 35 years of existence it has been the place of several activities such as discussions, video screenings and workshops. Voz Anarquista in the 70’s, Antítese in the 80’s, Boletim de Informação Anarquista in the 90’s and, more recently, Húmus are examples of zines and newspapers published and edited here.
In January of 2009, an eviction threat was made against CCL by the owner of the building in which it stands. Due to that, there was a court case between September and October. In the 2nd of November the sentence came out: CCL has until the 22nd of November to empty the place.
An appeal in the court will be made now. In this period there are costs, like paying the lawyer and the appeal. We still don’t know the exact amount of money that will be needed but for sure some hundreds of euros.
What is happening here concerns all those who struggle against realty speculation and the greedy propriety owners behind it.
The pretext from the accusation was the excessive noise during night time. The real interest for the owner is to gain a higher profit from the rent of the house. CCL has a lifetime contract that prevents major changes in the rent price.
The end of this centre means a big loss in all possible ways: it’s an important place for reflexion, debate, struggle and resistance.
As others fought in the past for the existence of this place, we fight back again saying NO to losing it by the hands of courts, profitmakers or any other reason.
We will continue our struggle!
All support and solidarity that can make our resistance stronger is urgent and necessary, therefore welcome!

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".
A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.
To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
ARSON AND WILDFIRE FOR EVERY PRISON
