STOP THE REAL ESTATE PROFITS! | Promotion at Provada June 11, 1:00 PM

Woonopstand will take action against Dutch real estate profiteers at the national real estate fair Provada on June 11 at 1 p.m. Parasitic real estate investors, private (large) landowners, slum landlords and other predatory investors come together here. They make the lives of many hundreds of thousands of people miserable. Participants in this fair are responsible for all kinds of abuses in the housing market. Insecurity, flexibilization, evictions, unaffordability, fraud, gentrification, you name it. On June 11, they will negotiate, also together with municipalities and government agencies, about the future of our living environment. The consequences of this public-private partnership are destroying lives and making people homeless. That has to stop!

Organizations in The Hague in action to freeze rents!

From July 1, the housing associations Haag Wonen, Staedion and Hof Wonen plan to increase rents by 5.3%, the highest rent increase in 30 years! For many people, this means an increase in charges of more than €30 per month, or €360 per year! An action coalition of SP The Hague, BPW The Hague, The Hague City Party and Wij Refuse the Rent Increase is therefore demanding a multi-year rent freeze in order to achieve structural tax relief for tenants in poverty in The Hague!

The Baaibuurt collective rises from the sinking fringe

If it is up to the municipality, the artist and student communities on Zeeburgereiland will have to make way for buckets of sand at the end of this year. The municipality wants to raise the subsiding island with it. But the communities have united and are working on an ambitious plan to preserve their fringes. Other affordable but temporary locations for artists are also in danger of disappearing.
