Modified: 07:27:36 AM
As part of a journey through Eastern Europe a member of the Anarchist Radio Berlin had the opportunity of talking to another comrade of the housing project Syrena. The main topics of this interview were the history of re-privatization through ruthless landlords and local autorithies in Warsaw like the case of the murder of the tenants activist Jolanta Brzeska in 2011 as well as the wild tenants struggles against these mechanisms and their cooperation with the anarchist movement regarding soaring rents and a small building of social housing in Warsaw. Additionally, our friend told us some interesting facts about the development of Warsaw's city structure, especially its rebuilding in terms of communal housing under the Soviet regime.
Some more interviews with anarchist organizations and anarchist projects will follow soon as part of our new series on anarchism and social struggles in Eastern Europe.
