Squatting Workshop with Frank Morales
Sep 13, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
The crisis in housing is not only about the fact of 40,000 homeless people in NYC, the increasing rents, displacement and gentrification of neighborhoods, and the generalized insecurity of tenure faced by the 99%. It’s also about the fact that there are presently enough vacant properties throughout NYC to meet the needs of the homeless three times over (!) and alleviate the housing shortage which allows for the absurdly high rents.
Squatting, or the un-permitted occupation, renovation and defense of vacant spaces for the purposes of crating housing and social centers is about realizing our human right to a home through direct action. This workshop will offer the techniques, tactics and procedures for squatting in NYC.
