Hi allemaal, vanaf heden (Zaterdag, 19 januari 2019) hebben wij de Dam Amsterdam bezet om ons statement duidelijk te maken over de ontruiming van de vrijplaatsen en de overmacht van het neo-liberale systeem.
We gaan overnachten en iedereen is welkom om ons te steunen. Kom je ook?!
Neem dan je slaapzak, eigen kopje, tenten mee.
