I have filmed my friends fight for Ungdomshuset

from August 2006 to March 2007.

I was allowed to film almost everything.

I have so far as possible told it

chronologically, and as I see it.

Director, Nikolaj Viborg

I'm going off on Sunday

so I won't be here when it starts.

It's a really special feeling for

me to stand here right now.

It can be the last time

that I'm in this house.

It looks like it.

"Theyve got the house, we'll get peace"

Copenhagen Mayor, 1982

Mads Lodahl.

Ungdomshuset activist

Hi Tanja.

I'm collecting materials for my article.

Where would people like you go if

there wouldn't be Ungdomshuset?

I would sit all day in my house,

pissed off and sad.

Because here I'm also all day.

I don't want to be anywhere else.

That's the only place where

I don't fell like a freak.

I think many people feel the same.

Without this house it will be hard to

find some other place like this in Denmark.

Ungdomshuset, 28. August 2006

It will look like a joke.

- That's what its all about.

Don't look at me.

- Try to shout.

Today, the Supreme Court holded up

the decision of the County Court.


Hi. Today, the Supreme Court holded up

the decision of the County Court.

Anyway, we are staying.

We are still ready for negotiations,

but if they don't want a political solution,

confrontation is inevitable.

Today, the Supreme Court ordered

the youth to leave Ungdomshuset.

They gave the owner of this building

- the religious group Faderhuset -

rights to use this building.

What is the situation in Ungdomshuset?

It's tight. Ungdomshuset attracted

all youth groups from Norrebro.

Their representatives don't want confrontations,

but will they manage this situation?

If I would like to be dramatic, I would say

that this is a peace before the storm.

Does it look good?

- Your fringe is a bit too high.

Do they look real?

- Nope, your face is too pale.

I look like Amalie.

- Yeah, Amalie also wore it like this.

My openness about my homosexuality

has been often met with violent reactions.

In Ungdomshuset it's different.

I quickly found out,

that Ungdomshuset is a place

where I can be myself.

Copenhagen Authorities

gave us Ungdomshuset in 1982.

By doing that, they confirmed a need for

a place that will be for all outsiders.

It seems that people who rule now

think different.

It's not important

what I think about their decisions.

I'm expecting that we will find a solution.

I'm expecting a dialogue about this.

I think that's the way

we should handle with this.

Ungdomshuset, 18. September 2006

Who will read the plans for

the weekend from 22. to 24?

It will start with a demonstration.

We need a group on the sides

of trucks and on the front.

Something about eight people...

- What about accommodation for the night?

If the 80 people from Holland won't come,

and if 120 from Kiel will,

then we have night rests for everybody.

As a Monday Summit Ungdomshuset

representatives, we want to show our strategy

so you will know what to do.

Our official statement is,

that we don't support combat actions.

No destructions or vandalism,

unless in self defense

if cops will start it.

We're in negotiations with the City Council

and we agreed to participate

in this democratic process

because we know that we will get

beat up if we would fight with police.

I have promised to encourage everyone

to participate in the Saturday demonstration.

It must be peaceful, we want to show how

broad is the spectrum of support for us.


I will tell you something about those,

who they call "the youth"
