Farewell Christiania ??

My memory of the free town of Christiania was no street lights and in the pitch black a pack of huge local dogs , menacingly circling , barking and growling , having scented strangers and i also remember that the hash dealers , sat at the tables with their brass scales , all being very fetching females .
I hope that the capitalists who are pressing for the end of Christiania , a "true anarchistic village democracy where every resident can take part in the decision-making" and hope to transform it into " part of the Danish society [that] conforms to the rules and regulations of the rest of the society...and introduce normal ownership rules in the area, requiring residents to pay rent." , fail in their endeavour , although i very much doubt it since Christiania is situated in "an area that comprises prime real estate in one of the world's most expensive cities." and we have seen how the housing developers and property speculators have gotten their own way everywhere else in the world .
Help save Christiania
