Come with us! We just bought an important part of Rozbrat. More precisely: a share in it. To do this we borrowed a lot of money from various people and initiatives. Now we have to give back 320 thousand zlotys. We have already used most of what we have developed to carry out social and environmental activities.
After years of fighting for preservation of Rozbrat, the most critical moment in almost thirty years of history of this place is coming. A court hearing will be held on September 15th, at which a final judgment is to be issued, giving a green light to the eviction of Rozbrat.
