Organized young people demand a decent home
Did you know that a rented housing fund has been set up addressed to social policies for people excluded, or at risk of exclusion, from this basic right? That Catalan Law 24/2015 ought to guarantee us the right to a home? That there is help for rent for young people? That urban farming and cession of use facilitate young people’s access to housing and stability?
The Catalan National Youth Council has promoted a campaign about young people’s housing problem. The aim of the campaign is to inform, raise awareness and protest about public policies in matters of housing addressed to young people. It also hopes to highlight the work being done by youth bodies and other social organizations and movements in this area.
The campaign, from 15th to 19th February, consisted of sharing all kinds of resources (articles, images, data, resolutions, videos, projects, etc.) via social networks. The slogan and the hashtag #SostreDigne accompanied the publications. One of the resources that were shared were the interviews with Carlos Macías, spokesman for the Platform of Mortgage Victims (PAH) in Barcelona and Montserrat Torrent, member of the Platform for the Right to a Decent Home.
