Transnational call for donations and support from Ljubljana
On Tuesday 19th January 2021 the Autonomous factory Rog (AT Rog) vas
viciously attacked and subsequently destroyed by joint forces of
neo-nazi linked private security companies and the police at the
direction of the Municipality of Ljubljana. Without any warning and
witout any legal basis. Houses were demolished or serously damaged, a
lot of equipment, tools and personal belongings stolen.
Established in 2006 AT Rog as a social, cultural, political space and
quickly became one of the major nodes of direct social work, migrant
solidarity networks, grass-root political research and action and of
myriad other practices that addressed the needs of the people of
Ljubljana. Ljubljana created AT Rog because there was a need for it. Its
authentic bond with the residents of Ljubljana is reflected in an
enormous outpour of support from many individuals, nonforNmal
initiatives, academic institutions and many others. As well as in many
donations received and other support offered.
During the violent eviction and the subsequent protests in which
thousand people defied the ban on all public gatherings many people were
arrested, given fines and some criminal cases were opened. We expect
that costs of fines will only increase as the state continues its
repression and the costs of legal cases mount. All these will be an
additional burden for the community of AT Rog that also needs to deal
with an immediate issues of housing, stolen equipment and necessary
