WRO | indybay.org | 2018-10-01
Rents explode in cities after massive sales of public housing to brutal investors. In 1987, there were 5.5 million social apartments in Germany. Today, there are only 1.5 million. Land speculation is prevented in Vienna. The Vienna Housing Fund buys up possible development land. In impoverished Germany after WW1, local communities built hundreds of thousands of nonprofit apartments thanks to pressure from below.

Next year will be rich in events for Ukraine. The most intriguing of them, due to the obvious absence of a leader, will be the March presidential election. Well, the top line of sociological ratings is now occupied by Yulia Tymoshenko.
