Κοινότητα Καταλήψεων Κουκακίoυ - Koukaki Squat Community
Koukaki Squat Community - A new project bloomed in 2017, in the neighborhood of Koukaki. We created a community of housing and struggling squats. We occupied three empty buildings which were getting rotten at Matrozou 45, Panaitoliou 21 and Arvali 3. We rebuilt them through a lot of work to become sustainable, to become places of gathering and communal organization.
In february and march 2018, fascists attacked Panaitoliou 21 but failed burning it down. Matrozou 45 was evicted a first time in march 2018 under Syrisa, then re-squatted a few days after.
On 18 december 2019, Matrozou 45, Panaitoliou 21 and Arvali 3 are all evicted. Police forces are again invading and terrorizing Koukaki. After heavy resistance, all Matrozou 45 occupants succeed in escaping the battlefield without arrest.
