Evictions are often invisible to society and isolating to those evicted. Direct action can make eviction less dehumanizing (humanizing the tenant and dehumanizing the landlord and the system that upholds landlords as a class — the courts, the law, and the cops).
Publicly fighting evictions can shift the society’s view of eviction — from something that just happens to something that is horrific and wrong. It can also shine light on eviction as a collective problem, not an individual one.
Fighting eviction can justify anger and channel anger into resistance and power.
Even in situations where there is not an immediate path to organizing it’s a way for us to show up and say NO.
