Frontul Comun pentru Dreptul la Locuire [The Common Front for the Right to Housing]
The Common Front for Housing Rights – FCDL – is an initiative started by people whose basic rights to housing are in danger of being breached or have already been breached. Created in Bucharest by a group of evicted persons or those living under the constant threat of forced eviction, together with relatives, friends, activists and artists – FCDL is a platform for housing activism. We address evicted persons, those who might be evicted but also: anyone supporting the right to proper housing; civic organizations; independent political groups but also media, political decision makers, local and central authorities. We understand the right to proper housing not only as a defensive move against forced eviction, but as comprising all necessary reforms which might efface various types of inequalities created by the housing market.
