Portugal: Community-occupied school violently evicted

Categories: Western Europe, Portugal, Breaking News, Protest

Community members resisted eviction from the Es.Col.A in Fontinha [1] [pt] in Porto this morning. The abandoned, disused school was being used by a self-organized collective for after-school classes, recreational activities – watch their story (with English subtitles) [2]. While broadcast media report the violent police eviction, protest continues. #Fontinha [3] and #ocupai [4] are the hashtags on Twitter.
