An abandoned former medical facility in Prague’s Žižkov which was taken over and cleaned up by squatters and activists in 2014 to create what they called an anti-commercial, cultural and social centre, has been obtained by the Railway Infrastructure Administration. The news was reported by Czech Radio’s flagship station Radiožurnál on Monday. The state agency told the wire service ČTK that it intended to use the building for its own employees. The squatters who ran the facility which they called Klinika, repeatedly appealed to community spirit and aimed to provide what they described as a platform for “anti-authoritarian collectives and individuals”.
