"For over a year now, [people in Chicago] have been reclaiming vacant properties owned by the Chicago Housing Authority. The city and its private contractors abandoned thousands of units of so-called public housing. They let the pipes burst and the walls mold over, just so they can call them uninhabitable, schedule them for demolition, and sell the lots to the highest bidder.

NO MORE. We are inhabiting the uninhabitable. We have dumpstered our homes.

The houses, many of which were sitting empty for years, have become FREE SPACES that hold so much more than a roof over our heads. They are home to anarchist libraries, food distros, parties, film screenings, dinners, constantly re-arranging affinities, intimacies, and an endless tide of batshit ideas and inciteful possibilities."
