Social revolution at street level
[Page updated: 28th February 2007]


Note: This is the English section of our website http://squat.net/ps28, which is in Dutch. It contains only a selection of the information that is available in the Dutch version, but hopefully enough to keep you informed. From now on we will add important updates in English as well as Dutch. As some of you will already know, PS28 is not only our house but is also now a thriving social space with two people's kitchens per week (mondays and thursdays), a squatting advice hour (tuesdays), a 'give away shop' (saturdays) and a squatter's breakfast (sundays). There are some flyers here: flyer1/flyer2

PS28 thrown to the money wolves?
We don't think so!

Feb 2007: The owners of our fortress have been caught up by their own past: Joe McCarthy and his gang of criminals have to appear before the criminal court because of fraud (and more!) It is thus high time that the council severs all bands with these people. Not just with McCarthy, but also with his front-men and the rest of the people in his network. In other words: withdraw the building permit! We will drive the wolves of criminal money out of this neighbourhood!


Winter 2006: Following the granting of a building permit to the money wolves Pepijn Koch (NBC van Roemburg / Contaxus), Robert Leon Segaar, Gerardus Albertus van de Laar and Antonius Klomp, we have been to the local council on the 9th October to make our voices heard. However, apart from fine (but empty) words we have heard nothing further from the local governors. Even after handing over the (long promised) second part of 'Where smoke is...' (namely the report 'Where straw is...', in Dutch), we have heard nothing.

For this reason we call on all our comrades, neighbours and sympathizers to look at this new report and to communicate your opinions about this to the local governors. See also our neighbourhood letter (in Dutch.) Send the local governors a message to wake them up! (You can find a postcard here.)

WORDS MUST BE FOLLOWED BY DEEDS, EITHER BY THE GOVERNORS OR THE PEOPLE THEMSELF
