Syracuse Solidarity Network (SSN) is a network of anti-capitalist, anti-oppression, and anti-authoritarian individuals, groups and projects. Monthly meetings or general assemblies take place to share info & get plugged in to events across Syracuse. No one group or person speaks for or represents the whole network. Because we want a world without bosses or centralized power, we make decisions together and act autonomously. We want to build & support a welcoming, creative culture of resistance in Syracuse.

SSN is an affiliate of the North East Anarchist Network. The Northeast Anarchist Network (NEAN) is a network of anarchists and anti-authoritarian organizations and individuals that has been meeting and collaborating since February of 2007. Our aim is to create a regional, horizontal organizing network in the Northeast, linking those committed to struggles anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist and anti-oppressive.

Shelter: a Squatumentary
(2008), 45 min.

With universally skyrocketing property values, rent and home-ownership have become unaffordable at best and impossible at worst. Thus, people all over the world continue a long tradition of circumventing the expensive price tag and reclaiming this basic human right by squatting. Shelter: a Squatumentary is a documentary film that explores the squatting movement in the East Bay from 2004 to 2007. We follow three examples of the struggle for housing in an unaffordable marketplace such as the San Francisco Bay Area. Hellarity House, Banana House, and Power Machine are stories of squatters who have found one tentative solution to the ongoing housing crisis.

The screening will be followed by a discussion on squatting as a tactic and how to use it not for lifestylist dropout culture but instead for actual community building. Squatting—a historically clandestine move—needs to come out of hiding and build a real community around its claim to free housing for all. Otherwise, this age-old tactic will continue to serve temporary ends; squatters will continue to be evicted and crack new squats in secret; they will continue to alienate each other along with the mainstream—all the while, still under the thumb of the housing market and its landlords.
