13 December 2015: Film – Mietrebellen

tumblr_inline_nj0t33wCT51szx396BERLIN – In recent years, the capital city has changed dramatically. Flats

which have long been regarded as unattractive are now seen by investors as guaranteed cash cows. Massive increases in owner-occupied flats and unprecedented rent rises are part of everyday life.

The visible protests by tenants in the dazzling metropolis of Berlin are a reaction to the increasingly inadequate provision of affordable housing.

The film is a kaleidoscope of tenants’ struggles in Berlin against the expulsion from the communal living conditions.

FILM (German with English subtitles) followed by a discussion with the director.

Sunday, 13 December, 3pm. Karl Liebkncht Haus, Rosa Luxemburg Platz
