Residential Rebellion!



After the Housing protest on September 12, 2021, between 8,000 and 10,000 people came to the national Woonopstand in Rotterdam on October 17, 2021. There we made a joint fist with a broad coalition. It is high time for a radically different housing policy. In the fall of 2021 many more people took to the streets in Amsterdam, Arnhem, Tilburg, Nijmegen, The Hague, Utrecht and Groningen. 

But the housing struggle continues, also in 2022! Residential protests will be organized at both local and national level in the coming months. Here's an overview.

30/01 Residential Revolt - Amersfoort

There is a housing crisis in the Netherlands, also in Amersfoort! As a result of political choices, rents are unaffordable and houses are being bought by investors who drive up house prices to fill their own pockets with profits. Housing is a right, not a revenue model!

Fewer and fewer people are able to find a home and homelessness is a problem that affects more and more people. Temporary leases are on the rise and people desperate for a roof over their heads are increasingly becoming the plaything of anti-squatters and slum landlords. Population groups are played off against each other by politicians who themselves have caused the housing shortage.

Our protest, the Woonrevolte in Amersfoort will take place on January 30th at 14:00 on the Eemplein. Sign up in the meantime as a volunteer or support us with a donation so that the housing protest will soon be audible loud and clear in Amersfoort!

12/02 Veense Woonbetoging - Veenendaal

✊ Na o.a. Amsterdam, Rotterdam en Utrecht is het nu aan Veenendaal om de volgende woondemonstratie te organiseren.

✔️ In veel grote steden is al gedemonstreerd tegen de woningnood.* Hierbij komen mensen vanuit het hele land steun betuigen. De woningnood is echter in (bijna) alle gemeenten aanwezig. Hoog tijd dat alle inwoners van zich laten horen in hun eigen gemeente.

*Welke is ontstaan door verkeerde landelijke en lokale politieke keuzes

💪 In Veenendaal trappen wij deze campagne af. Het is tijd dat alle gemeentebesturen en het kabinet voelen dat  er in het hele land steun is voor deze protesten. Gezamenlijk kunnen wij het verschil maken!

13/02 Housing revolution - Leiden

Er heerst een kunstmatige woningcrisis in Nederland. Dit is geen natuurverschijnsel, maar het gevolg van overheidsbeleid. De overheid stelt namelijk ons woonrecht ondergeschikt aan belangen van beleggers en huisbazen. Zolang de overheid toestaat dat beleggers en huisbazen flink veel geld wegsluizen uit de handen van huurders die in woningnood verkeren, is er geen eerlijk woonbeleid. Het mag niet zo zijn dat er mensen zijn die meerdere woningen bezitten en hier geld aan verdienen, terwijl anderen dak- of thuisloos zijn of moeite hebben met een vinden van een passende, fatsoenlijke, zekere woonruimte.

Wij eisen woonzekerheid voor iedereen. Wij eisen een radicaal ander en inclusief woonbeleid waarin woonrecht centraal staat. Wij eisen de huissleutels terug naar de Sleutelstad.

27/02 Residential riot - Haarlem

The housing crisis affects everyone, including residents of Haarlem. Bad policy ensures that affordable housing is demolished and replaced by endlessly expensive new housing estates. Starter homes are bought by parasitic investors to rent out for ever-rising prices. And all this while our wages are not increasing. The current housing policy is a mismanagement and no longer serves the people, but the capital.

Enough is enough. Politicians don't stand up for our right of residence? Fine, we'll do it ourselves. Sunday February 27. housing riot. Reinalda Park. Let's break the housing crisis.

05/03 Residential Offensive - Eindhoven

There is a housing crisis throughout the Netherlands. The number of homeless people has doubled in ten years. The housing shortage continues to spiral out of control. Renting is becoming more and more expensive because the amount of social housing is declining and prices in the private sector are extremely high. Buying a house with an average income is almost impossible. This has to be done differently, better, and above all fairer. Housing is not a market. Housing is a right.

We take action. We get up. Will you join us?
March 5 at 14:00 on the Town Hall Square.
