Swomp4 direct environmental action in Amsterdam - GroenFront! - EarthFirst!

Swomp4 direct action in the Rustenburgerstraat in Amsterdam squats piece of
land and starts urban regeneration permaculture project

On Friday July 11 a group of squatters occupied this piece of land in the
Rustenburgerstraat in de Pijp in Amsterdam.
Technically they are wild campers, as the law in Holland only allows you to

Within three days they already had running water and had started to plant
vegetables and develop an urban permaculture project.
This is direct action at its very best.
