This afternoon the judge in Amsterdam gave the judgement in the lawsuit of the refugees of We Are Here against the state and the city of Amsterdam against the eviction of the vluchtgarage.

The judge recognizes that it is inhumane in the winter to let the refugees roam the streets during the day. Since the city only offers Nightshelter, the refugees have no place to go during the day. The judge considers the situation of the refugees hopeless, because they have no right to social security and 'return to their own country often is problematic'.

Thus the judge orders the state and the city of Amsterdam to postpone the eviction until 1 may 2015. The judge considers 'that the interest of the squatters, for the time being, is bigger than the interest of the state/the city of Amsterdam in evicting the parkinggarage. De judge honors the demand of the refugees in so far, that it will be forbidden to the state until 1 may 2015 to evacuate the parkinggarage Kralenbeel 100 in Amsterdam'.
