Squatter Films

I think of squatters as part of gentrification. They're a subset of the artsy types who transform a bad neighborhood into prime real estate. Squatters see it differently judging from the hyperbolic "gentrification is genocide" claim on this flyer.

It also states "Squatting is about taking back life, taking back the land in the interest of justice, equality, peace and love between neighbors..." I disagree. Squatting is about economics, wanting to live in NYC and not wanting to pay a high rent.
