An interview with Shane, a member of the Berlin anarchist media group about conditions in the city and the anarchist movement there.

Interview with anarchist squatter in Berlin - Kopi 2009 by Andrew Flood on Mixcloud

While on a recent visit to Berlin I interviewed Shane, a member of the Berlin anarchist media group, who was the organiser of my public meeting on 'Organised anarchism in Ireland'. The conversation covers a number of areas including the economy of the city, gentrification resistance, strikes, tortured geography, the legacy of the 80's squatting movement, the collective housing movement today, Kopi and its many bars, the place of the collective houses in the Berlin left, the drawbacks of the 'scene', organised anarchism in Berlin, the nature of the autonom groups, post apartheid South Africa, economic re-structuring, struggles around service delivery, the role on 'internationals' in the Berlin scene and anarchist publishing with the anarchist media group.

The anarchist media group have a website at http://www.anarmedia.info

The interview is 25 minutes long and was recorded on August 20th, I first uploaded it to indymedia.ie It a 12mb mp3 file which can be downloaded from http://www.indymedia.ie/attachments/aug2009/berlin_inte...e.mp3
