Dear all,

A small update on the situation of the group of Amstelveen. As you all
already have seen, the judge decided the building had to be empty today
by 12:00. The group got a little more time and was able to get matrasses
and most important belongings outside, its in storage now.

As there is no alternative, people registered their name at the night
shelter in Havenstraat. They wrote their name, gave their vnumber and
are allowed to stay for tonight. Not everyone registered, some people
dont want to go inside for different reasons, amongst others being
traumatized by prisons, others have found a temporary place with

There is a lot of media coverage:





I personally have seen a group of very strong men today, who feel
defeated but keep their head up and stay strong. I have big respect for
that. These are very very difficult times. I think no one expected an
eviction like this, having court and evection the same day.

Take care,
