Today in Budapest we are organizing a demonstrative march for the third time in order to draw attention to the fact that at least 100 000 flats are left empty in the city. These places could be the homes of people – of the 10 000 homeless people who live in Budapest, and of all those, who live in overcrowded or undignified housing. These buildings are empty because of irresponsible politics that open space for housing speculation, do not think that they should intervene on the housing market, and waste their own housing stock by leaving it empty.
We have lots of ideas about how to use the empty housing in a more appropriate way…. Our claims for the utilization of empty housing: http://avarosmindenkie.blog.hu/2012/06/19/avm_s_recommendations_for_the_utilization_of_empty_buildings_and_apartments
