Rog: Expiration Date Unknown 

The article offers an in-depth reflection on the state of the autonomous zone Rog one year after a violent eviction attempt. Rog is understood as a symptomatic space which is representative of  similar autonomous places that create alternative culture, different modes of affirmation and new, egalitarian political structures. What role do autonomous places play in modern society, what are their limitations, and what are the most important issues faced by the collectives within them? We are not attempting to define Rog, but we aim to think about the heterogeneity of the people and collectives that run it, and present its wide variety of options – the article is therefore based on their statements and thoughts. On June 6, 2016, a group of security guards entered Rog by force early in the morning, in the next hour the entire zone was barricaded. Support poured in from practically the entire alternative/progressive local scene. The article looks at what has happened since the incident and touches on the subject of the future (and necessity) of places similar to Rog.
