We're still here!

Once upon a time, there was a group of people who were declared criminals
overnight, and who then took to the streets and said: Your laws, not ours.
And they set fires in order to show that they will not go away silently,
that they will not surrender...
It's been a year since the squatting ban was implemented. And like on any
anniversary, it is time to look back and see what has changed.

The waiting lists for social housing have only gotten longer; the rights
of renters have been eroded more and more; anti-squat agencies flourish by
exploiting people in desperate need of a roof above their heads, offering
them only precarious solutions that are no real solutions at all.

The same goes for the squatting ban: it was never a real solution. It was
only a convenient way for politicians to escape responsibility. When they
said they wanted to solve the problem of housing shortage, that they
wanted to find solutions to emptiness, we knew they were lying. And the
last year has, once again, only proven that we were right not trusting
those two-faced lizards in the first place.

As long as those in power don't seem interested in solving the housing
problem, we will keep doing what we always do – squatting. We refuse to
lay our destinies in the hands of greedy speculators and housing
corporations. Instead we will keep providing solutions to ourselves, and
continue to do the best we can to help other people do the same.

Let us commemorate the 1st of October as the day that represents the way
we will never, ever give up.

Ban or no ban – we're still here! Idealen ontruim je niet - kraken gaat door!
