On Tuesday, January 30, we received a very urgent call for support from tenants who were threatened with an illegal eviction the following day. We immediately started working on it and were able to mobilize for a solidarity action.
Residents of the former fire station at 19 Laanslootseweg, a building belonging to the municipality of Rotterdam that is rented out by Camelot, are organizing themselves against the impending eviction and demanding housing security. Laurens and Rob, who have lived there for 4 years, and Steffan, who have only been living there for 10 weeks, live in the building. They would be on the street on November 26. To prevent this, BPW and residents therefore started a campaign for housing security.
