PROTEST IN FRONT OF ROG AT PETKOVŠEK RIVER BANK (THE BACK SIDE)
TOGETHER WE WILL PROTECT ROG!!!
You are also welcomed to call mister Zoran Jankovic and tell him to stop the demolition!
We are gathered at the abandoned Rog Factory. Artists, activists, philosophers, members of different collectives and groups, which have been active here for more than 10 years are here. Our work is based on autonomy, solidarity and help among each other. Despite trying to achieve a compromise, the municipality of Ljubljana is ignoring the activities held in the factory. Their goal is to stop the rich abundance of activities held in Rog which are opposing the capitalist ideas of gentrification of the center of the town and adjusting it to the tourists and “well known” artists. In short, their goal is the eviction of the current users, demolishing of all the buildings except of the main one (factory Rog is a complex of 5 buildings plus the main building, all the buildings are housing activities).
The attack on Rog happened today, on 6th of June at 3:15 in the morning. The security was violent towards the users of the factory, when the police came nothing changed, except that the violence was toned down a bit. We have built barricades around he area which they want to make into a building ground. Behind the barricades is the security, working for the municipality.
There is around 100 people supporting our cause at the area of the factory now.
Every support is more than welcome. You can show your support by sharing the information, think of possibles ways of solving the situation and THE MOST IMPORTANT – COME TO THE FACTORY BY YOURSELF!
