The Villa Amalias collective has published the following brief update on the situation regarding the squat:
As of this morning, the cops have unsealed the door of the Villa on the side of Cheiden Str, without the presence of any of the residents. It is obvious that they are inside illegally and have made unauthorized entry into the space. We warn that any damage or alteration in the space of the occupation will be responded to appropriately. We should remind them that no-one has the right to be present inside the building without our presence. Villa amalias
Meanwhile, the eight people who were arrested in Villa Amalias during yesterday’s raid were in court today. They are being charged with felonies (!) as the empty beer bottles found in the squat are considered material for the construction of explosives. The DA referred all eight to the inquisitor, to whom they will testify on Monday morning. All eight will remain detained until then.
