Action Alliance against Housing Shortage and Urban Degradation, Newsletter 145

Rally for the tenants of Wallstraße 31 on July 8, 2023 in front of the house of the owners Im Hasengarten 11, 50996 Köln-Hahnwald.
When we stood in front of the house Wallstraße 31 on April 22, we protested not only against the owners of the former hotel, but also against the city of Cologne. See our newsletters 134 and 135.
In the meantime, there is a public commitment by the city of Cologne to preserve the apartments at Wallstraße 31 and a promise to support the owner in legalizing the apartments.
