A group of squatters opened their community garden to others in the city for one day. As seen in the video, the event turned out a good number of supporters. Squatting has been officially illegal in the Netherlands since October of 2010, though many squatter communities continue to exist. The squatters featured in this video can be contacted through their blog entitled “Our Media” or their youtube channel SpiritofSquatters.
