Bündnis Zwangsräumung Verhindern [Stop Evictions]
The Stop Evictions alliance has been struggling since 2012 through many forms of civil disobedience for the right of housing. At the heart of our action is the issue of forced evictions in Berlin. In recent years displacement of people on lower incomes from the city centre has become a sad reality. The process is similar to many other cities, the speculative strategies of private owners, real estate and public housing companies who are trying to extract the maximum profit from their houses. Forced evictions have been increasing massively and finding a new house has become a challenge for many of us due to skyrocketing prices. More and more tenants are left behind in hopeless situations until the bailiffs come. Our group strives for a society based on mutual aid and solidarity, and organizes diverse and public protest against this together with those who have been affected.
