Utopia in Christiania

Freetown Christiania or simply Christiania or Fristaden, a commune with its own rules, is a country of Denmark. It is a community-led utopia, and ‘a self-proclaimed autonomous anarchist district of about 850 to 1,000 residents, covering 34 hectares in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital city of Copenhagen’.

It is an anarchist community, but it still have its own rules to keep the world under the force of gravitation. For the Christianiates, the laws and Constitution can all be written in one page. Their Common Law starts with a statement and the laws of the land are all there in a few signs of Dos and Dont’s.

Christiania’s mission statement

“Christiania’s objective is to create a self-governing society, whereby each and every individual can thrive under the responsibility for the entire community. This society must economically rest in itself, and the joint efforts must continue to be about showing that psychological and physical destitution can be diverted.”
