Bijeenkomst Groningen kapitalisme en de wooncrisis
Discussiebijeenkomst georganiseerd door de Groningse afdeling van de Internationale Socialisten. Voertaal Engels.

In September we joined the Shelter our Students campagin to fight against student homelessness and exploitation in Groningen. On Sunday the 28th, we are co-orgnizing the Woonstrijd in Groningen to continue and broaden the struggle against an unjust housing system.

Student initiatives and housing protests have sprung up in many other dutch cities, leaving behind many of the established so called left parties and calling for re-structuring of the housing sector. Tens of thousands of people all over the country are participating in the birth of a new, broad movement with social and economic demands.

In this meeting we want to put these struggles into perspective. Our comrade Elmar van den Berg will give an introduction to facilitate a discussion on the topic. The capitalist system exploits us through wage labour, and then charges us to rest, recharge, and live. Housing is not seen as a human right, belonging to everyone, but increasingly as a luxury. The housing movement has to continue to challenge the logic of capitalism to create long lasting change.

In this meeting we will discuss questions such as:
  • ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ด๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ณ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜?
