We are Azadi Squat in Athens

Featured

We are organising again!

After some troubles in the house and some misunderstandings we found us again.
We changed our name for a new start!

Why we call us Azadi?
Azadi is meaning freedom in Farsi and Kurdish language. We took this name because the most of our residents are Iranian and Kurdish Families!
Freedom of movement- Freedom of ourselves- Freedom of our minds is what we want.
so this is why we meant this gonna be a good name for our house!

We are in the process of reorganizing ourself. We are a selforganized community of international people who opened this house to give a safe shelter for woman and children!
we have some rules in the House:
No Violence
No Sexism
No Racism
No Drugs

This is the main consensus of the people who are living in this house. This time we are around 50 people living peacefully together. Most of us are woman and children.
We are on the way to set up the house in a good living standard for everyone who is having a room in the building.
Currently we are not able to take new people in the Squat. But we are able to take care of those who are living inside!

What we need:
Blankets/ Bedsheets
Pillows
Mattresses
Lamps
Soap, Shampoo
Woman Hygiene Pads
Kitchen Equipment

and urgently we need food donations!
We are happy to get dried food donations from Pamperaki !
But unfortunately this is not enough! If you could help us with food donations we would appreciate to get in contact with you!

With Love and Solidarity

Azadi

📣 CALLOUT FOR OPEN ASSEMBLY

CALLOUT FOR OPEN ASSEMBLY 8PM 27/02/19 ON THE UPCOMING EVICTIONS FROM ESTIA ACCOMMODATION

We are people concerned about the recent announcement that 600 recognised refugees who received refugee status before July 2017 will be forced to leave from UNHCR/NGO accommodation (apartments and camps) by 31st March 2019. We do not want to see any more refugees on the street. We are calling a solidarity assembly to discuss the announcement, what effects this decision will have, and what we can do. Please come if you are affected by this decision or know people who are. We will discuss in English and have translation in Arabic, Dari, Farsi, French, Greek… stand up, RAISE YOUR VOICE (no more refugees in street)

ASSEMBLY: 8PM, Politechneio University, GINI Building 27/02/19

Emergency shelter

Today we met Arash from Our house. He was trying to find shelters for some homeless families.
 
We were able to take four person in our emergency room.
Two women with children got kicked out of their room this morning, because they cannot pay for another month. One of them has a six year old daughter, the other one a fifteen year old daughter.
 
For now they are in the emergency room. We are trying to find another room for them in the house!
For this we need some more blankets, mattresses and food – if you could support us with some of this needs – contact us for details!

Upgrate °1

Our first change !!!

We are spending a lot of money for Gasoline to heat the water for the showers.
For long term this doesn’t make sense so we decided to invest in water heaters.

The costs of the water heater are 90€ + 30€ for the power cords!
We installed the first one another one is coming soon!

We’ll keep you updated!
