Police cracked down on some three dozen squatters holding a music event at the Milada mansion in Prague 8. A helicopter and one hundred police officers arrived on the scene after midnight and arrested about 25 people for misdemeanours. A number of squatters climbed on to the roof, however, and police were still negotiating with them to come down on Sunday. The squatters were marking three years since police forced their community out of the mansion, which was abandoned in 1988 and is in poor condition. For more than 10 years the squatters had inhabited the building and organised concerts and anti-racism festivals.
