Activism & other writings

Common works and actions

I am part of the Frontul Comun Pentru Drept la Locuire (FCDL - Common front for the right to housing), a grass-roots movement based in Bucharest (Romania), which is also part of the European Action Coalition for the Right to Housing and to the City.

This is just a partial list of stuff - contact me if you'd like to collaborate in any of these things.
