How can we counter the disruptive impact of financial speculation in the real estate market? What are the strategies of some of the many Berlin-based activist collectives, how do they organise their communities? What are their plans for the upcoming Housing Action Day on 28 March, when people across Europe will take to the streets to demand that their homes and cities must stop being sources of profit?

In their first community meetup of the year, Disruption Network Lab invites you to join them for a warm-up to the first event of the year, EVICTED BY GREED: Global Finance, Housing and Resistance, which focuses on the issues of financial corruption and tax havens in the real estate market and the countermeasures adopted by civil society.

You will hear from three Berlin-based initiatives, Berlin vs. Amazon, Kotti & Co and KunstBlock and beyond how they work on collective responses to the ever-increasing disruption of the housing market by speculators and real estate investors, with a special focus on what they are planning for the upcoming Housing Action Day on Saturday 28 March.

Program – starting from 19:00:

  • Introduction to the EVICTED BY GREED conference

  • Input presentations by Berlin vs. Amazon, Kotti & Co and KunstBlock
