Danish Squatters Defend the Youth House





COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - More than 300 demonstrators were arrested in the Danish capital on Saturday after violent clashes between police and youths who were protesting against the planned closure of a youth center in the city.

Several hundred demonstrators threw cobblestones, bottles and fireworks at police and erected blazing barricades made from Christmas trees, trash cans and bicycles, police said.

"It was extremely violent. It looked like a war zone and it's been many years since we last had to use tear gas on the streets," police spokesman Flemming Steen Munch told reporters.

Police responded with tear gas attacks and split the main crowd of demonstrators into several smaller ones using armored cars. Groups of demonstrators walked toward the city center smashing shop windows, leaving a trail of destruction.

The conflict over the youth center has been brewing since 2000 when local government sold the building that houses the center. Left-wing activist have been using the center as a base since 1982.

The current owners have a court order to have the squatters evicted but the youths have sworn to protect the house and have repeatedly called for a political solution.

Danish media reported that at least four police officers and several demonstrators were injured in the clashes.

Hi dear,

How are you doing?

Well, I always wanted 2 share my views with all 2 know – if they are really worth and of any value – probably u r the 1 who’s gonna answer me! Please do say something for me; i’ll await your answer.

Our India is a great nation; its culture, traditions & heritage have been very glorious since the past but as for now, it is facing a non-stop assault by the evil of pornography & obscenity. Our youths have become its target & falling prey to it, hence causing an irreparable damage to our nation’s true values and spoiling our society!

Pornography is plainly responsible for the great upsurge in sin & sexual violence on women all across the world. Youth, under the influence of pornographic literature, Websites, & films are beginning to see women as objects of sexual pleasure & fantasy; thus leaving women feeling more ‘n’ more unsecured.

Please join me in stopping this! Let us make sanity and chastity prevail and prevent porn, the curse on our civilized India. India is looked up to for its cultures, traditions, values & social life; Let us not damage this image and preserve it for glory! A coordinated & well-planned approach with active support from the government and public is required here. It will work wonders, if all women join hands for this & all men come forward to support it.

The saying –“God created man & man created sin” – suits fine here, right? So, please help stop porn before society sinks into the depths of horror that humankind has never seen before. I request you to kindly do the needful to save our great & magnificent nation & its invaluable treasures of culture, tradition and moral values. Join me to support this cause at: http://www.jantaraj.com/raghurammalladi/defaultpet.asp?pid=358

(Hundreds have already joined me and I know you will do the same – thank you)

Your friend,

Karan Kapoor

Karan Kapoor, you're totally right. We should ban porn and make everyone look at pictures of people rioting instead. It'll encourage our youth to far more constructive pursuits!
