Our Right To The City Congress will be held in Boston this year, helping to build on the incredible ground work that has been laid there to stop foreclosures and keep people in their homes. The Congress represents a watershed moment for RTTC during a critical time. The right wing is waging powerful ideological and physical attacks on mother earth, immigrants, working class folks and communities of color, and all progressive/left forces around the country, while the theft of public resources by private capital (with the help of the State) is unrelenting.
But so too is the determination with which we have been resisting, organizing, dreaming, building and fighting for transformation - at increasing levels of scale. This moment is also characterized by ever-shifting terrain, full of possibility and opportunity for our movements. The RTTC Congress will be an exciting time to strengthen our relationships, build for the future, share our victories, and give the banks a taste of their own medicine by staging some fun & creative direct actions.
We look forward to seeing you there!
