This Weekend

Not just a CLASS on squatting, but a SYMPOSIUM on it!  My brother once told me about these people he’d heard of who were squatting in a mansion in Paris.  I’d rather squat than rent.  My other house is a tenement.

XXXXX FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24 XXXXX

Squatting Europe Collective

For the first time ever, a group of activist researchers from the European squatting movement are gathering in New York City. They will make public appearances to speak about the decades-old movement of squatting and building occupations in their respective countries. The tradition of political squatting is moving from the shadows into the light. With the world-wide rise of the Occupy movement, the deep reservoir of experience within the movements of political squatting have become suddenly significant.

 

Generations of activists have participated in occupations of vacant buildings in Europe, beginning in the 1970s. The best known early success was the famous free city of Christiania in Copenhagen. But every major city in Europe has experienced some version of politicized squatting, most recently in the form of social centers.

Various times, locations, and events. Check website for complete listings.
