Protesters took to the streets of #Berlin’s Friedrichshain district to demonstrate against the planned eviction of a left-wing housing project. Police made several arrests, local media reported.
Demonstrators held flares and shot firecrackers as they marched through the district to defend the building currently occupied by left-wing squatters. Around 1,500 people participated in the protest, local media said, citing police.
Footage published by RT’s Ruptly video agency shows activists holding a large banner reading ‘Defend Liebig34’, the name of a housing project located at Liebigstrasse 34. Authorities have announced that they plan to evict the squatters on October 9.
