We, members of European Action Coalition for the Right to Housing and the City affirm: housing is a human right, not a commodity!
But in capitalism, housing became a commodity and a financial asset. International institutions claim that the current housing crises should be solved by the market and by more deregulation in the domain of housing. Neoliberal policies insist that public money should be invested in the production of housing by the private sector. But real estate developments make high profits for the investors and banks, and don’t serve people’s housing needs.
Thus, we demand: Public money for public housing – Public housing from public money!
