hong kong and warsaw, capital of poland, are both facing the same problems of, big property cost; small living space and the much slower salary increase than the increase of housing rent. yet when residents of hong kong could only struggle for public housing while bearing the pressure of housing rent, there is a neighbourhood of locals and migrants, tracing back and relating their own housing needs with the stories of residents’ rebuilding after the war, and started a movement and occupy experiment calling for residential rights and decommercialisation of peoples’ housing, rejecting the gentrifying development model (urban renewal) fundamentally.
do the grassroots of hong kong really have no choice but swallow the unfair relationship between the property owner and the tenant? how were the stories of the residential development and the fights for the residential rights in hong kong being written? how did the autonomous living spaces of the grassroots sprouted and grew from the gaps and quack of the urban?
this activity shall thread together the film of the polish squatting movement and the guided tours at to kwa wan and lei yu mun, hoping that renew our understanding and thoughts about the housing issue in hong kong.
