It seems like an eviction in FreeCuvry will arrive soon.
Already some weeks ago in the camp there were some voices about a probably eviction in this month of June, but now these voices become every day real. All the inhabitants of Cuvry have seen in the last days the police’s controls increase, every day lot of helicopters fly over the camp, yesterday one of them did 5 times a circle, most probably to take good pictures of the all field to can have the exactly number of the houses and an idea of the quantity of the people who live here.
I can already tell it to you .
The houses in FreeCuvry are 50 or more, about 20 of them are gipsies’ house. If you think that in every house there are at least 2 people, but in a gipsies’ one there is a family of 4 or 5 people, this means that in FreeCuvry live between 100 and 150 or more people.
So Berlin, are you ready to kick in the street more than 150 people like it were nothing?
I also understand the gipsies are a recent problem here in Germany. Since the Romania and Bulgaria have entered in the EU, the borders opened and the gipsies arrived here. They have lived in Italy since long time, because the less controls to enter in my own country or for the more tolerance for immigrants. A Roma camp is also near my family house in Catania. Italian people know them maybe better, at least they see gipsies everyday in the italian cities so they know their way to live. But for german people this can be a new wrong life-style. Even Yuki was totally surprise when he discovered the first time on which way the gipsies live, cause in Japan gipsies have not yet arrived.
But it is not so easy, it is not with a eviction that Berlin will solve the gipsies problem. They live in this way since centuries or thousands years, they don’t really care if their houses would be destroyed, them will find another place and build another 100 time new houses.
But I can also say that FreeCuvry is the only place where I saw gipsies from Romania living together with gipsies from Bulgaria and Spain, and with Poles, Italians, Germans, Australians, Dutch, South Americans, Lithuanians, Hungarians, Japaneses and all the people from around the world who live in FreeCuvry.
I don’t know if this mix of culture will arrive to a balance for the creation of a organized village, but some months or even one year are not enough to know it.
The owner of the field, Artur Süsskind, has already ordered the evacuation to the police. They are preparing it in these day.
So it’s written in a article of Neues Deutschland.
But yesterday also a journalist of the Morgen Post came in Cuvry to interview us and make some pictures of our project. Her name is Uta Keseling.
She told us she is going to write an article on the weekend newspaper about all the empty areas in Berlin, talking about the positive and negative sides. I hope our project will be in the positive ones.
The article will be publish on this sunday.
We know in FreeCuvry there are huge money interests, I’m an architect and Yuki is an artist, we are not activists neither politics. In this kind of world and society we can not win against so big power. We can just continue to work every day, do what we can do, create something beautiful around us, hope to give and take good and positive energies from all the people and from all the spaces we live.
And maybe one day something will change.
So if you also think like us, please visit us in these days that could be the last, and help us to keep the good that we still see here.
