Freetown Christiania, located at Christianshavn in Denmark, is an area in the center of Copenhagen, where approx. 850 inhabitants have proclaimed themselves independent of the Danish state. Christiania's flag with three yellow dots on a red background, the three dots over the i's in Christiania, is one of the things that almost all Danes are aware of, and many have probably also heard the Christianites' kind of song, "You can't us beat down ”.
Back in 1969 and 1970, a group of Christian gardeners began to fence off the defense base Christiania is undergoing, protesting, among other things, that there was a housing shortage for young people in particular at the time, despite the buildings being unused here. The government resumed these fences several times until 1971, when the area was already populated, and immigration really started when the newspaper Hovedbladet printed an article with the headline, "Emigrate with line 8".
Christiania in Denmark is today known for the pot and hash trade taking place on Pusher Street in the middle of the sanctuary - trade that continues despite the numerous attempts to put an end to Christiania from the government and police.
