Let Them Have Homes

Jeudi Noir is a housing activist group in Paris that has been staging squats in unoccupied buildings since 2007. They are called “les nouveaux militants—the new activists—for their youth and media savvy” and they currently have a group of 60 people squatting in a 21,000 square foot office building. They’ve been visited by the housing minister and “Interior minister Manuel Valls appeared on news network Canal+ to tell one of the squatters: ‘Madame, you are not outside the law, because housing is a right under the law.'”
