We got the ruling overturned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Compound: 1, Rockridge Realty/Bruce Reeves: 0
After 6 months of post-trial fighting, 10 months of legal battle and 1 year of eviction threats, we have FINALLY gotten a break and won the first round in the fight for our home. No, this is not the end. Have no doubt that they will come swinging in the next round tenfold. But for now, we are safe.
Since the legal fight began we have chosen tactics that some of you disagree with. We are not deaf to the argument that entering into the courts of the bourgeois, on any grounds, is a concession of our anarchist principles. We ask that you don’t use this as a reason to disengage yourselves from the space. Trust us that the fight that we engaged in the courts was a subversive one. We followed no rules, got away with things no lawyers ever could and depleted our opposition of extensive money, time and resources. And we simply cannot theorize ourselves out fighting in every way possible to prolong the life of a space that provides housing to so many folks who could otherwise not afford it.
Friends, it has been an arduous struggle and we have not come out unscathed. We are wounded and exhausted but proud of our collective perseverance. Help us breathe new life into the space and make the best of our precious time we’ve fought so hard for. It was a brutally cold winter and with the thaw of spring new potential is found.
Long live the compound. Long live Autonomy. Long Live Anarchy
