On March 8, a group of young people in need of living space occupied 5 abandoned flats at 25 Amstelkade which had been vacant since at least 2011. The owner of this building has continually tried to avoid much-needed renovations and is now in the process of selling the property. The result of this transaction, and name of the new potential owner are still unknown to the public. Our group is not interested in causing delays or problems with any renovations that might occur. We only wish to occupy this space until work actually begins, to trade emptiness and deterioration for conscious habitation.
