Zurich, Switzerland: 1980.
The city council grants an amount of 60m Swiss Francs to renovate the opera house, while declining demands for a local youth culture center. A cry of outrage over this injustice grows louder in the young community and quickly gains support from activists fighting housing shortage and drug related misery in Zurich. Opera was yesterday, youth is now and everyone deserves a place to express themselves. Your group is occupying a whole area which was meant to become your independent youth center, but is now deemed for demolition.
Soon, nobody can escape the issue anymore, no woman or man, no politician or journalist, no artist or police officer. There will be a demonstration. There will be violence. Only one question remains: Who were you, when Zurich burned?
