This panel will debate how housing struggles and strategies can be critical for revolutionary change. In a time when housing unaffordability and environmental sustainability are great challenges — especially in global cities such as NYC — radical approaches offer possibilities to struggle for both better housing and post-capitalism. Squatting, expanding appropriate public (social) housing, and eco-collaborative models (eco-communes, eco-cohousing and ecovillages) are discussed with special reference to new book Small is Necessary: Shared Living on a Shared Planet (2018), urban squatters’ movements and leading housing organizations in Washington DC (ONE DC and Empower DC).
