Ungdomshuset cleared, running battles ensue

The police cleared Ungdomshuset early this morning.

I’ve moved away from Nørrebro so the first I heard of it was when I got to work.

Apparently the police landed a helicopter on the roof and a crack team of cops made their way inside and cleared the place in half an hour flat.

Since then protestors have fought running battles with police across my old neighbourhood, with dozens arrested so far.

It was inevitable it would come to this. The people running the youth house have proved to be as intransigent as the police in many ways.

    Get stuck in mate. I’m all up for a bit of street rioting. Re-discovered the joy of Guinness last night. Its worth seeking out, don’t feel too good today though. Off to have some dinner with Rosie tonight, she often talks about you, I’ll say hello to her from you. Tom

    I wonder what it feels like, to believe in something so completely. Hope no-one was irremdiably hurt.
