The Cultural Free-haven ADMamsterdam is currently seriously threatened with eviction by the people behind the companies Amstellimo and Chidda vastgoed, who are in fact the heirs of the notorious and mafia related real-estate speculator, Bertus Lüske
They claim to have signed a lease for part of the terrain with Koole Maritime BV, which started out on October 1st. 2015
They summoned us to leave before August 1st. 2015 (and to take everything with us!), or face a fine of 50.000 euro's for every day after this date
Three (!) separate legal procedures have been started against us, as of yet
Around 130 residents, ranging from 0 to 80, are currently living between hope and fear
For over 18 years we've been creating a sustainable community, turning an abandoned and derelict shipbuilding-yard on the outskirts of Amsterdam, into a life laboratory and oasis for the free-spirited and thinkers, in co-operation with the nature around us, by our own means, and with no single cent of subsidy
All over the terrain there are various protected bird species, mammals and wild-flowers to be found, (So far officially established: natterjacks, bats, owls and orchids)
We've hosted around 900 concerts, 100 benefit-events for 3rd. parties, 40 festivals, 9 WinterGames, 7 Bakbrommer-races, 5 Robodocks, 3 SleazeFests and countless other public events
All in all around 100,000 visitors in total attended
We also support and perform at various other festivals and events in the Netherlands, Europe and the world.
From Oerol to Fusion (DE) and BurningMan (USA) and from RollendeKeukens to TerraMadre (IT) and Macau (HongKong)
