Pfarrstrasse (Berlin) eviction - February 98

On the morning of Tuesday February 24, a masked special police unit with automatic pistols burst into a squat at Pfarrstrasse in Berlin. One squatter watched as his dog was shot three times and killed. Local authorities said the eviction proceeded "with few incidents". 260 police were called in to evict 15 people from the house. The local mayor had told police that there were not to be any squat evictions without his prior notice - however he was on holiday at the time! Berlin's right-wing Interior Minister, Joerg Schoenbohm commented: "I will see to it that there are no more squats in the future."
