Various Artists - Lieder für Instandbesetzter (1981, Mood Records) - Solidarity with Rigaer 94


The "Rigaer 94" is an alternative house project in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The house was squatted in 1990 and legalized in the next years. On June 22nd, 2016, some parts of the building were evicted by the police, since that event Berlin sees an ongoing militant protest. Today the Landgericht, a Berlin court, decided that the eviction was not legal... You find more informations via http://rigaer94.squat.net/.

For more than 26 years a handful of housing projects in Rigaer Strasse have been places of selforganisation in an area massively affected by gentrification. The struggle and resistance of people living in the projects together with their neighbours are the reason why the Rigaer Strasse doesn’t look like other parts of Berlin which are dominated by luxury housing and mirror finish fronts.

In solidarity with the people at "Rigaer 94" we post an album which is an great document of the West-Berlin squatter movement of the early 80s of the last century. "Lieder für Instandbesetzer" was recorded at a solidarity concert at "Metropol" with Bettina Wegner, Walter Mossmann, Teller Bunte Knete, Fliegende Blätter and IG Blech. The album was released in 1981 on "Mood Records."
