Protest against the housing crisis

Protest against the housing crisis



On Sunday 6 February, a Delft protest against the housing crisis will be organised in the Poptapark. Last year, tens of thousands of people took to the streets to protest against the national housing market policy.


Like other housing protests, the Delft Housing Action endorses the Housing Manifesto, but also has specific demands for the city of Delft. One of these is more housing for students. “Build enough (group) housing for students, not just studios and communicate the housing problem more clearly to future (international) students.” The organisation also calls for more on-campus housing and asks the university to take responsibility for the students they attract.


The housing protest in Delft starts at 1 PM in the Poptapark with speakers about the housing crisis. This is followed by a march through the city. The end point is the Market square. The organisation calls on people to follow the current covid measures  and to stay home if they have flu-like symptoms. Those who cannot be present live can follow the protest online via live stream.
