For three years the Op De Valreep squatted social center has been a valuable resource for people living in Amsterdam East. On June 17, 2014, after a long campaign to legalize the space, the city of Amsterdam and the developer OCP evicted one of the last vestiges of non-commercial space in Amsterdam East. Supporters of Op de Valreep constructed massive barricades and chained themselves to parts of the building in an attempt to block the city government and the police from carrying out the eviction. Police made multiple arrests in an eviction process that lasted from dawn to dusk.
