On saturday more than 10.000 people demonstrated in various German cities for the rigth to housing and the city. Creative actions like a blockade training to prevent forced evictions, theaters with occupy-superheros and occupations of empty plots pointed to Germany’s but also Europe’s most pressing social and political question: sky rocketing rents, forced evictions, speculative vacancy, the commodifivation and finanzialization of our land and housing.
In Berlin the demonstration enden with the call to participate in the European Day of Action for Housing Rights on Oct 19th!
Housing for people, not for profits!
