(NL) Action Days in The Hague for De Vloek and autonomous spaces

De Vloek moet blijven!

December 26-27-28 2014: Action Days in The Hague for De Vloek and autonomous spaces

Because more and more autonomous social centres are being threatened and evicted, an Action Weekend will take place on December 26-28 in The Hague. The city of The Hague wants to evict De Vloek social centre in January 2015. Sometimes you have to fight for what you love, and now is the time! Stop the eviction of De Vloek, defend autonomous spaces and social centres.


Time and again, autonomous social centres have to step aside for yuppie projects. This year, De Valreep in Amsterdam was evicted to make room for a luxury Grand Café, and now the city of The Hague wants to evict and demolish De Vloek social centre to build a sailing centre. Everywhere you go, beautiful initiatives that have been built from the bottom up have to disappear for yuppies. The world should not revolve around the interests of real estate developers, but around people. That is why we are organising three days full of demonstrations and actions on December 26-28.


De Vloek was squatted 12 years ago and has made its mark on the harbor of Scheveningen. Many non-profit initiatives have been developed there. De Vloek is home to the organic vegan restaurant “Water en Brood”, the concert hall “de Piratenbar”, many work spaces, studios, living spaces and rehearsal rooms for bands. Everything that happens in De Vloek has been started and kept running without subsidies, and the building is self managed. Hundreds of people come every week to activities at De Vloek.
