Evicted by greed: Eviction in times of crisis

by 24 April 2020

Since the corona pandemic, issues of affordable housing and speculation are as pressing as never before. How are activists in the city dealing with the current crisis? How are they restructuring their work and keep fighting for affordable housing for all, and what is happening to stop evictions in times where people are urged to stay at home?

Warming up to our online conference EVICTED BY GREED: Global Finance, Housing & Resistance (29-31 May 2020), we invite you to join a collective discussion with two collectives working on housing issues. The Syndikat collective, who has been running their Neukölln bar since 1985, will share the story of how they uncovered the ownership structures of their building, and how this brought them to a letterbox with 75 other names in Luxembourg. Also, they will give an update on the situation around their eviction previously planned for 17 April 2020. The Bündnis Zwangsräumung verhindern will speak about how they work on stopping forced evictions in Berlin, especially in these difficult times.
