We have started a courtcase against the 429 declaration that was made last week on the squatted social centre at Ruyterkade 153 157.
SCUB (social centre under the bridge), has now been squatted for some months. This space starts from our need to have a project based on self organization, and the expanding of possibilities that can grow from this.
These are some of the ongoing activities in this space, from regular bar and vokus, to infonights, workshops, hacklab, silkscreening, radio, cinema, unplugged rehearsals and peformance etc.

it is hard to ask for support and solidarity when a space with potential is merely at the beginning of its existence and growth. However since it is important for us to find somewhat of a continuity and stability with the development of these projects and the strengthening social interactions (not only with squatters) , we are, without illusions of the “justice” system, trying to keep this space.
This does not limit the creativity and range of actions that we support and encourage in attack and disgust against the invasion of our lives from a system that does not give anybodya choice to exist outside of it, especially within an urban space.

Ah yeah and our building is “owned” by Ymere and the city of amsterdam.

So, if you are interested in participating, supporting or visiting the space, check out the website for our program and events.
