(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #256 (Dec) - social, Seine-Saint-Denis: the struggle of a public housing neighborhood against evictions (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Sun, 24 Jan 2016 14:00:42 +0200
Evictions are increasing in France and more specifically in Seine-Saint-Denis, for example
in the city Gagarin in Romainville. But there, the authorities who come to evict a family
face the opposition of residents and inhabitants determined es to derail the social
cleansing attempt by the district. ---- Between 2013 and 2014, housing evictions rose 15%.
They should increase further in 2015. Rents and expenses rose, not APL, tenants of private
and public housing tenants are increasingly difficult to make ends month purposes. Paris
and Seine-Saint-Denis hold the sad record with a third of expulsions of entire
metropolitan France and this year prefectures and the donors have increased with the
approach of the winter break. ---- On 13 October, the Diassiguy family, parents and nine
children were expelled violently from their HLM city of Gagarin in Romainville (93),
several neighbors came in solidarity were injured by riot police, sent into force. The
family had repaid its debt, expecting the payment of CAF and had appealed the deportation
decision, the court must make its decision on October 27. Prefecture, mayor and DPOs would
not expect this decision to expel. The same day, with the tenants' association Sputnik /
DAL public housing and Housing Rights (DAL), residents and inhabitants were mobilized,
went to demonstrate in front of the mayor and more than 200 people occupied the Community
Council of East Ensemble.
Expulsion in Romainville by droitaulogement
Since then, the inhabitants of the city do not give more than a dozen demonstrations were
held in the streets of Romainville gathering up to 500 people, young, old, women, men,
teens, who spent their holidays to tow and paste posters, fathers and mothers who sign
petitions, activists and seasoned activists, people demonstrating for the first time,
tenants of the city, in solidarity neighbors ... always in the right mood!
The appeals court finally agreed with the family, suspending the expulsion. Despite this,
town hall side Prefecture, HLM, it turned a deaf ear and balance against truths with a lot
of leaflets in mailboxes and municipal newsletters. Why the freeze? Because you have to
scare tenants who are struggling to pay at the end of the month, and expel them in
silence, because among the tenant of the OPH de Romainville, one third are in unpaid rent.
Because the 11 subway line will be extended and rather than benefit the people of this
town forever, the new station will accelerate the social cleansing Neighborhood Gagarin is
quoted in the new urban renewal program, Anru, a project led by the mayor for a long time
provides for the demolition of 400 homes on 730 and new housing will emerge, housing
solidarity and collective reflex it possible to construct a power struggle against these
policies anrtisociales in housing, by making an example of individual cases among other
collective consequences of these policies from which to fight.
Already tied Project
Even before the pseudo-consultation, the project is put together without the people and
against them. If it succeeds, many families in the neighborhood will be in the same
situation as Diassiguy family, expelled or forced to accept to live further, in more
expensive housing, not suitable.
The people of Gagarin and Sputnik tenant committee / DAL an example by resistant housing
evictions and demolition projects in a popular district. Since the beginning of the
movement, there were no more eviction in quarteir Gagarin. Today, Diassiguy family was
hosted and legal proceedings are instituted so that it reintegrates its housing. In
Gagarin, the struggle continues for the relocation of Diassiguy family, stopping against
evictions and the demolition project area. Furthermore, the DAL Committee calls for the
creation of public housing tenants DAL against evictions, against the demolition of public
housing and against urban renewal projects aimed at social purification in all neighborhoods.

EVICTION STILL MORE, STILL LESS SOCIAL
The housing crisis is for the working class, not for speculators. Despite the existence of
laws designed to protect tenants, and social inequality reduction pledges, evictions are
linked in indifference (almost) general.
The winter break
Established sixty years ago, it starts every year on November 1 and prohibits evictions
until March 31, except for the occupants and squatters who are not protected. Until the
eve of the truce, evictions are increasing under the pressure exerted by bailiffs, owners
of the prefectures or town halls to get with the assistance of the public force (police)
before five months of status quo. Frenzy of evictions is repeated every year, more and
more violent and more numerous. From 2013 to 2014, the number of eviction judgments
increased by 5%, the assistance of the police force by 24%, and evictions forcibly by 15%.
A record that is part of a movement that has only amplified the last thirty years: since
1983, evictions have increased by 352%. and assistance of the public force of 254%.
That's not counting the tens of thousands of households who leave their homes each year
before the police intervention, often in secret, or violently pushed out by some owners.
Nearly 85% of private sector evictions are carried out in complete illegality notably in
Paris and Île-de-France, and many are in violation of the Alur law, which prohibits to
give notice to his tenant to speculate and better rent or sale behind.
Other illegal evictions increasing, those of recognized families DALO priority (right to
housing), while a circular banned since 2012 they are available on the street without
Emergency (always) at risk
At the same time, emergency shelters and 115 are already on the eve of winter, in extreme
saturation (especially in Paris in Seine-Saint-Denis, in the Rhône, Haute-Garonne Gironde)
and government guidance harden the controls and repression of people without a residence
permit in accommodation centers and infill housing.
On November 4, the National Assembly adopted a 2016 budget lodging "mastered" as Minister
Ms. Pinel, with the only opposition the Left Front who denounces a "budget contrary to the
public interest and in particular that of the lower classes" . It's the least we can say:
cutting 225 million euros in APL, disguised drop in the stone to help with the creation of
a national aid to the stone Fund (Fnap) putting share state subsidies and funds from
social landlords, increasing considerably, in fact, the demands on the housing agencies
and hence rents for tenants. Overall, the envelope for equal areas and housing will reach
17.7 billion euros in 2016 with a decrease of 196 million euros.
And now what do we do? We sat in Parliament?
