Abstract:

This update focuses on the formation and current work of the Autonomous Tenants Union Network / La Red de Sindicatos de Inquilinos Autónomos (ATUN). A core function of ATUN is the providing of resources and spaces for tenants to reach common understandings of and strategies for the current moment—a moment that is characterized not only by the financialization and expansion of global real estate capital, but also by increasing mass tenant movements for a right to housing and people over profit.

The Autonomous Tenants Union Network/La Red de Sindicatos de Inquilinos Autónomos (ATUN) is an international network of tenants unions across North America which have joined together in recognition of the fact that as neoliberal capitalism operates on a local, regional, and international level, so too must our movement against it.
