FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHT TO THE CITY
Lessons from Hamburg, Barcelona, and Montreal - June 7 - Montreal
On June 7, the Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung―New York Office, along with the Milton Parc Community, will host a Right to the City workshop in Montreal, featuring organizers from two of Europe’s largest Right to the City networks: Recht auf Stadt (Right to the City, Hamburg, Germany), and PAH (People Affected by the Mortgage Crisis, Spain).

The event will come as part of La Fete des voisins Milton Parc.
