Sweden - public housing victory

Members of Rättvisepartiet Socialisterna (RS, Sweden CWI) are celebrating an important victory in the working class suburb Hammarkullen, Gothenburg.

Since 2012, RS has worked against private business being owners of big housing complexes and, at the same time, demanded renovations and public ownership of 890 rundown apartments in the area.

In October, information came that one of the publicly owned rental companies, Bostadsbolaget was interested in buying the houses. This came as a result of our campaign. But the right wing parties were trying to stop the deal in the city council.

We took a public statement with our demands to 16 local branches of the tenant's union. The west branch of the union, with 71,000 members, supported our statement and demo.

After two hours of debate in the city council the decision was taken to make the 890 apartments publicly owned!
