Before it burned down yesterday, Siperia is one of the most active squats in Helsinki organizing concerts, events of political activism, and art activities. It was intellectual home of Flexible Workers Gymnastic Club (a performance group which occupies public spaces to show how to make workers properly flexible for the needs of employers, see: http://flickr.com/photos/jousto ). At the same time, it was a certer for finding alternative ways for living and for exhanging opinions.

For all of you others who did not know social center Siperia, see
for its sorry state now
to see what it used to be like.
