[en] 280 people occupy building in Bologna

A large building in Bologna, immediately in front of the Municipality’s offices, has just been occupied by 280 people. Many have been living on the streets or in the train station after losing their jobs and homes during the crisis. Among them are 76 families and more than 100 children. Some children are disabled and one is a baby, just over a month old.

The occupied building was once the headquarters of the telephone company and has been abandoned for 12 years. The occupation is supported by the Social Log collective which is linked to Crash, the Autonomous social centre.
