The Housing Committee of the National Lawyers Guild is looking to support squatters

The Housing Committee for the National Lawyers Guild is in the process of developing materials to support squatting activism and we are trying to reach out to activists to identify the topics we should cover and to hear about what activists have learned from their experiences. Please contact me if you would be interested in being interviewed/surveyed. ALL COMMUNICATIONS WILL BE HELD STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL.
My name is Eric Post and I am on the steering subcommittee for the Housing
Committee of the National Lawyers Guild (social movement/leftist/radical
lawyer association; people with green hats at protests). We are in the
process of identifying topics and important considerations for a Squatting
guidebook and we realized that we need to be talking to some of activists
on the ground, so that we can hear your thoughts on the sort of questions,
topics, and considerations that should be covered in the guidebook, and
identify resources that the NLG could provide to support your activism.
Also, we would love to hear about some of the things you all have learned and what
sort of advice you would give to someone who is interested in engaging in
direct action squatting-related tactics.

Please let me know if this is something that your group may be interested in or
if you have any questions or concerns. All communications will be held
strictly confidential.

In solidarity,

Eric Post
