Until there are thousand social centres in Helsinki

Sunday 6th of November, at Mannerheimintie 5 B 7th floor. 

Food served 4PM, beginning of the lecture 4:30 PM.

In 2007 Helsinki faced an unprecedented wave of occupations. During that year almost ten buildings were squatted and multiple spaces of hundreds of square feet where held for several months. When the movement was already fading, they were able to maintain a lease for the social center Satama. How did the movement that was sparked by the eviction of Ungdomshuset organise and how did it eventually fall apart? What can we learn from that movement today? Journalist Mikael Brunila, who participated in the squattings, will take a look at these questions.
