Occupy Minneapolis Posting "For Squat" Posters On Abandoned Buildings

This photo is starting to go viral on Facebook feeds so we thought we'd repost it here.

Further story pending perhaps: Occupy Minneapolis has designed a "For Sale" imitation poster reading "For Squat," and they have started posting them on abandon properties around town. Editing the urban landscape with counter-narratives about the right to the city can help prepare public perception for future battles over housing and the right to abandoned space.

Occupy Minneapolis is part of one of most active direct action movements fighting against foreclosures and evicitions in the U.S. right now. Having recently won a major victory with the succesful defense of Bobby Hull's home, they are now facing attention towards Monique White and several others' homes.
