Artis Amsterdam Zoo is expanding. Between the buildings of the zoo en the water of the Entrepotdock is a strip of land. Back in the eightees the strip was a home for squatters and homeless. Beginning of the ninetees the city council chased the citynomads away and turned a chunck of the strip into parking places for zoo visitors.
Artis now is gonne take the remaining piece of land and is going to expand the animal quarters on it. The houseboats that are still there have to get off and one of the houseboaters made some artificial animals as a silent protest to his removal.
