Today Freetown Christiania is a 84 acres area between Bådsmandsstræde and Royal Navy Base Copenhagen, Holmen with 5 bastions, 4 powder magazines from 1680-90 and the area Dyssen (The Dolmer).

Christiania was founded on the ruins of old military baracks, Bådmandsstrædes Kaserne which closed down in 1969.

In september 1971 all the area and buildings was occupied of people without homes.

Within months they created a fellowship with this constitution, dated 13.11.1971:

– The objective of Christiania is to create a self-govering society in which each and every individusl holds themselves responsible for the well-being of the entire community.

This society is to pay for itself, financially, and the goal of these common endeavours is to show at all times that the mental and physical pollution can be averted.

In danish:

– Christianias målsætning er at opbygge et selvstyrende samfund, hvor hvert enkelt individ frit kan udfolde sig under ansvar overfor fællesskabet.

Dette samfund skal økonomisk hvile i sig selv, og den fælles stræben må til stadighed gå ud på at vise, at den psykiske og fysiske forurening kan afværges.

13.11.1971

Således formuleret af Sven, Kim, Kim, Ole og Jacob med ret til forbedringer.
