Stop Eviction – Take the city, demonstration and initiative all over Europe


stopevictiontakethecityThe week of action “Stop Eviction, Take the City” across several cities in Europe.
It ‘s just a small first step of many collectives and movements that are organized on a daily basis for the right to housing and the right to the city and are betting on the fact that in Europe, Mediterranean area and in world, it is possible to develop a movement that exceeds boundaries and claiming the right to housing and to the city. The social question of the house is one of the nodes useful to recompose with the complexity of social figures crushed by the crisis through practical solidarity and mutual aid. In the struggle for the conquest of the concrete needs you can build a social opposition in the permanent crisis. A social movement that speaks the language of our multicultural metropolis refusing Racism.

Living in the Crisis ebook


livinginthecrisis_copertina_ebookIn June 2014 in Milan have met a dozen networks and collectives throughout Europe, engaged in the struggle for home and claim the right to the city.
An important, but also a starting point to give breath to a European struggle which becomes daily more urgent since the start of the second major economic crisis in the history of capitalism.
These networks and these grassroots political organizations have a shared perspective on the continent and on the global stage but not limited to the housing problem.
The meeting ènato sharing real experiences, which developed around the conquest of houses, through campaigns, claims, squat. It was immediately clear that many of the most important issues that cross Europe are irrevocably linked to the possibility of having a roof over your head, to stop the unnecessary consumption of land, to fight real estate speculation and finally to live freely and cooperate in their metropolis.
We chose to collect the speeches of the meeting in an ebook, to collect this time in a snapshot, make sure that must travel a long road and many roads to sprire space of possible alternative in our continent and the world. Unpretentious, this meeting has opened a way that ntendiamo go together, starting with the mobilization for the right to housing and income which will be held in the week between 13 and 18 October in Europe.
