I sommeren 2017, i Toronto-kvarteret Parkdale, gik over 300 lejere, der bor på tværs af 12 lejlighedsbygninger, i huslejestrejke for at protestere mod en bølge af huslejestigninger, der ville have fordrevet medlemmer af deres lokalsamfund. Gennem måneders organisering og en række eskalerende aktioner tog arbejderklassens folk imod den største virksomhedsejer i deres nabolag... og vandt.

I en tid, hvor gentrificering hurtigt ændrer karakteren og demografien i arbejderklassekvarterer i byer over hele verden, og skubber fattigere lejere, folk med fast indkomst, immigrantsamfund og andre langtidsbeboere ud, byder historien om huslejestrejken i Parkdale på. en vigtig og praktisk lektion om, hvordan vi kan også i Danmark organisere os med vores naboer for at kæmpe tilbage.


Kom og se This is Parksdale og bliv en del af kampen. Det er gratis - og der bliver serveret popcorn og alkoholfrie drinks. Filmaftenen foregår foran det rydningstruet beboerhuset .

In the summer of 2017, in the Toronto neighbourhood of Parkdale, over 300 tenants living across 12 apartment buildings went on rent strike to protest a wave of rent increases that would have displaced members of their community. Through months of organizing and a series of escalating actions, working-class people took on the biggest corporate landlord in their neighbourhood... and won.

In an age where gentrification is rapidly transforming the nature and demographics of working-class neighbourhoods in cities across the world, pushing out poorer tenants, people on fixed incomes, immigrant communities and other long-term residents, the story of the Parkdale rent strike offers an important and practical lesson on how we can, also in Denmark, organize with our neighbours to fight back.


Come see This is Parksdale and be a part of the struggle. It's free - and popcorn and non-alcoholic drinks will be served. The movie night takes place in front of the community house that has been threatened with clearing.
