Squatting and Homesteading Teach-in

December 17th, 2011 | papertigertv

Frank Morales from Organizing for Occupation leads this teach-in on Squatting and Urban Homesteading, a presentation organized by Occupy Wall Street.

Beginning with a history of government policies developed in the late 60s, Morales provides a background on the origins of homelessness. After massive urban unrest throughout the United States, a government commission was developed which had a policy to destabilize poor communities of color to prevent uprisings. This led to many abandoned and bombed out neighborhoods which became prime squatting locations in the early 7os. Morales gives a basic outline of the philosophy and technique of taking back these homes and stabilizing neighborhoods through squatting.
