2016: Squatfest, Sydney

Posted by on September 8, 2016


A Sydney gathering celebrating squatting and resistance. According to the Facebook event page:

From 2 – 7pm there will be a number workshops about squatting and security culture.  At 5pm there will be a presentation by anarchists and antifascist activists from Burma, and a report on ongoing repression in Malaysia.  At 6pm there’ll be talks on the history of squats and squatting struggles in Sydney and other places. There will be an amazing spread of vegan/vegetarian/gf food available on the day, and a room that will be playing radical documentaries on squatting and resistance all day long.  After 7pm we’re gonna have bands, DJS and a karaoke party.

This event is being organised very quickly in light of the sudden eviction notice, so there is still plenty of space for people who want to perform in whatever capacity, just let us know :) Also anyone who wants to help organising the event, you’re heeaaaps welcome! All money raised at the event will be going towards an anarchist infoshop in Yangoon, Burma, and legal fees for comrades in Kuala Lumpar, Malaysia facing repression.

For anyone concerned about attending an event inside a squatted building, we recently got permission from the owner to use the space till at least mid September, so no one need be concerned about “tresspassing”. The building is also in great condition, with no structural defects, despite being scheduled for demolition.
