A humorous reply[edit]

"In response, the cannabis sellers covered their stands in military camouflage nets as a humorous reply." That wasent a humorous reply.. it is an effort to avoid undercover cops and policechopper from takin incriminating photographs of the drug dealer. -rbp


Untitled[edit]

The residents are hostile to the police, and resent their visits to the Freetown; anarchists claim that society can function without police or other authorities. What happens when a crime is committed? Do witnesses give statements to the police and cooperate with them to catch the offenders, or do they refuse to help the police? What happened in the aftermath of the 2005 shooting? Was anyone caught for it? If so, what happened to them? Best name (talk) 02:16, 27 May 2009 (UTC)

They are not anarchists and Christiania cooperates with the police on anything except the cannabis trade. -rbp

The residents does help the police in non cannabis related incidents:

This article describes how the residents turned over the purpetrator of a knife stabbing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luphphe (talkcontribs) 08:07, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

Christiania cleared[edit]

There is an indymedia-article that christiania was cleared at 15. Dezember 2009. See: [1] - Are there any other sources? Roland Ionas Bialke - 16. Dezember 2009 - 12 Uhr 30 (CET) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.225.83.196 (talk) 11:31, 16 December 2009 (UTC)

Christiania wasent cleared in 2009. The booths were removed only for a very short time in 2004. -rbp

In the opening paragraph, it says: "It was closed by residents in April 2011, whilst discussions continued with the Danish government as to its future, but is now open again.[1]" It was only closed down for 4 days; http://politiken.dk/indland/ECE1265466/christiania-lukker-for-aktiviteterne/ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luphphe (talkcontribs) 08:51, 17 September 2013 (UTC)

COP 15[edit]

i think a section needs to be added on Christiania's role during the COP15 summit as a base for protesters, speeches, entertainment and the violence and attack by the police on the 15th --Allie Cabab (talk) 13:22, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Do it. Do you have some english-language sources or are you proficient in danish? KellenT 19:37, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

Bias?[edit]

THis article seems very biased towards the community. ElectrifiedSpork (talk) 00:36, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Possible copyright issue?[edit]

The text of this article (and several others on areas of Copenhagen) has been copied directly (along with images) from Wikipedia into an e-book that is for sale on Amazon - the articles were written before the book was published. I believe this contradicts Wikipedia's copyright policies, but apart from noting this here I am not sure how to report it.

This is the book in question: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004L9LSP2/ref=docs-os-doi_0 Ellybabes (talk) 18:01, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Unfortunately I don't think there is much to do about it. We have had several issues of publishing firms that base their entire print-on-demand output on collections of Wikipedia articles, but Amazon hasn't responded when being notified about the problem and the Foundation hasn't got the resources for legal actions against the publishers. Leeches trying to profit off of volunteer work providing free information is simply a condition that we have to live with. --Saddhiyama (talk) 21:27, 23 July 2011 (UTC)
That's a shame, but thank you for your detailed reply. Ellybabes (talk) 21:53, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

"Road block robots" ?[edit]

In the cars section "road block robots" are mentioned. I've just done a bit of searching and can't find a source on what on Earth a "roadblock robot" is, aside from a former entry in the TV show "Robot Wars". Is this some sort of mistranslation?

87.194.152.184 (talk) 03:48, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

I think the name "road block robots" is not very descriptive, but I think I know what the writer means, I saw these when I was there in July - theya re automatic bollards: http://www.autopa.co.uk/product_images/automatic%20bollard3.jpg

Sorry I wasn't logged in for my last note above, it's linked me to a talk page with some negative comments, so I wanted to sign in with my real account. Ellybabes (talk) 11:42, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Micronation?[edit]

What is the sources for calling Christiania a micronation? To my knowledge they've never claimed to not be a part of Denmark. --OpenFuture (talk) 02:38, 28 August 2012 (UTC)

So, there are no sources. Thought so. We need to find another infobox. Suggestions?

There are several arguments for a micronation. When u leave Christiania, the sign says "You are now entering EU". Furthermore Christiania has it own code of laws. http://www.christiania.org/info/pages-in-english/ (Luff) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Luphphe (talkcontribs) 08:02, 17 September 2013 (UTC)
