Christiania was squatted and declared a ‘freetown’ in 1971, and one of the most long standing urban spaces of creative resistance in Europe began.
It’s manifesto declares:
“Christiana’s objective is to create a self-governing society, whereby each and every individual can thrive under the responsibility for the entire community. This society must economically rest in itself, and the joint efforts must continue to be about showing that psychological and physical destitution/pollution can be diverted/ prevented” 13.11.1971
