"No City Hates Its Landlords Like Berlin Does

Beginning in early 2020, Berlin will freeze rents for five years. Even more radically, tenant groups and thousands of activists are demanding that large corporate landlords be expelled from the city altogether, their property expropriated."


@polyplacophora @edgedestroys Oh, won't anyone think of the poor downtrodden property owners!

@petrichor @edgedestroys Honestly I live in the US and I needed this. It's so easy to just go numb when the news is nothing but evil, powerful people gaining ever more power and using it to commit ever greater atrocities.

@petrichor @edgedestroys it was a small victory, but they won, and it seems they're fighting like they think they can keep winning.
